Dreaming of Riding Weather to Come

Activity at the entry level of the sportbike class was evident at Kawasaki, which showed its ‘08 Ninja 250R, a thorough makeover of a longtime favorite. The revamped model, which sells for $3,499, has racier-looking bodywork and an updated two-cylinder engine. Kawasaki has also overhauled the Ninja ZX-10R with a new ram-air intake system and improved brakes.

Honda’s display showcased the new CBR1000RR, a redesigned model noteworthy for its low-mounted MotoGP-style exhaust sytem. But the CBR600RR, a longtime leader of the 600cc class, also struck a imposing figure in its new Graffiti paint scheme. The nearly flat-black finish is a $300 option on the standard $9,599 machine.

At the top rung of the sport machines in the Javits Center was the Ducati 1098R, heartbreakingly handsome and racetrack-ready, right down to the eight-level traction control system. The price tag, if you must ask, will read $39,900, but with 186 horsepower the “couple of hundred” 1098Rs Ducati says it will bring here ought to sell out quickly.
A motorcycle show in Manhattan at the end of December is bound to be a flop, right? Well, judging by the crowd of riders lined up at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center last Friday, that would be a bad assumption.
The dead-of-winter date for the New York stop of the Cycle World International Motorcycle Show is by now something of a tradition, coinciding for many enthusiasts with the onset of holiday-break cabin fever and an urgent need to see the newest models. Nevermind the weather outside (actually rather mild this year); warm weather is only months away.
The show, which ran through Sunday, Dec. 30, always offers a wide range of diversions. On the program this year were a stunt show, a custom bike showcase and a display of record-breaking streamliners that made history on the Bonneville Salt Flats. The highlight of this group was the current speed champion for two-wheelers, at 350.884 miles an hour, the brilliant red Bub Seven.
Still, the show’s main attraction was the hardware soon to be available in dealerships, which included entries in almost every class of machinery, from a revamped version of Suzuki’s Haya

Harley-Davidson’s display always attracts a large crowd, and the Milwaukee faithful were rewarded with early looks at the new Rocker and Dyna Fat Bob models. In 2008, The Motor Company is also commemorating the 100th anniversary of its police bikes, first delivered to the city of Detroit. A variety of peace officer and firefighter special editions are in the model line, as well as several stripes of the “preferred motorcycle of the Shriners of North America” in Concord Purple (for Jesters only, according to Harley) or Concord White at $18,000 and up.

The rise of the naked bike — models with sporting intentions, but not the aerodynamic cowlings of pure-sports machines — continues to gather strength. Suzuki has added the B-King, essentially an undressed Hayabusa, stripped of the fairing that would otherwise cover up all the mechanical eye candy. The $12,899 B-King has a radical style all its own as well as a feature Suzuki calls the Drive Mode Selector, which lets the rider choose between two performance settings for the engine management system.

The BMW HP2 Sport wears a bit more clothing, but the best parts of its 130-horsepower Boxer twin engine are in full view. Think of it as the ultimate expression of the R1200S; with all of the leading-edge hardware on this beauty, expect it to cost a grand or three more than the $21,000 HP2 Megamoto.

Ninja is the best........!

Detail of European Model "YZF-R6"

2003 European model Yamaha Sport "YZF-R6"
Yamaha Sport "YZF-R6"
Release date:
December 2002(varies with European sales companies)

Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. will unveil the 2003 European model Yamaha Sport "YZF-R6" at the "Intermot Munich 2002" (3rd international motorcycle and scooter show) to be Munich, Germany for five days starting September 18. (Press introduction day is Sept. 17th.) This will be the first production model to feature parts cast by the new Yamaha "CF Aluminum Die casting Technology." After its debut at the Intermot show in September of 1998, the original YZF-R6 quickly won acclaim in Europe as "a supersport machine that offers full enjoyment of 600cc power" and became the new standard in the mid-class supersport category. The 2003 model represents first model change of the YZF-R6 in four years and was developed around the same original model concept while adding further refinement of cornering performance and even more exciting engine performance. The main changes in the new YZF-R6 include, (1) a new engine comprised of about 90% new parts, (2) fuel injection, (3) meets EU2 emissions standards, (4) first production motorcycle frame made exclusively of cast parts, (5) chassis parts made by Yamaha's new CF Aluminum Die Casting Technology rear frame and rear arm) and (6) styling that tells you at a glance this is the 2nd-generation YZF-R6.

1) New engine with 90% new parts including new-design pistons

The new YZF-R6 adopts a new liquid-cooled 4-stroke DOHC in-line 4-cylinder 4-valve engine with about 90% new parts including new forged pistons designed for optimum strength balance, new high-lift cams and a redesigned crank case. While maintaining the outstanding character of the existing engine based on the bore x stroke dimensions, compression ratio and the combustion chamber shape, the new engine is characterized by boosted performance across the full rpm range due to improvements such as optimized intake/exhaust efficiency and measures to reduce pumping-related horsepower loss. As a result, a power increase of about 3 hp has been achieved while maintaining the same maximum power output rpm of 13,000 rpm (while ram-air intake is in effect)

2) Liner-less direct plated cylinder

In order to reduce the resistance of the piston in motion, a new type of cylinder has been adopted which eliminates the cylinder sleeve and applies plating directly to the inner wall of a die-cast cylinder for what is called a "direct-plated cylinder." Elimination of the sleeve enables outstanding heat dissipation characteristics, good strength balance and a more precise cylinder design. What's more, increasing the strength of the land that holds the rings, optimizing the thickness of the top ring and revising the ring tension all contribute to more stable piston movement. All this helped in achieving a more consistent gas seal and excellent oil-consumption characteristics. Furthermore, the new crankcase design with enlarged passages between the cylinders reduces fluctuation in air volume due to the pumping action of the pistons, thus reducing pumping-related horsepower loss. This helps produce to outstanding response characteristics. Horsepower loss has also been reduced by various design measures like optimizing the crank balance to reduce the load on the crank journal.

3) Fuel Injection system with suction piston

In order to obtain both outstanding intake efficiency and good response, this model adopts the same suction-piston type fuel injection (FI) system that has won such high acclaim on the 2002 model YZF-R1. This system uses the motion of a free piston that moves in accordance with the air pressure fluctuations to regulate air intake flow from the low-speed range, thus making possible both linear throttle response that retains a natural (carburetor-like) intake feeling and the outstanding response and reliability of electronic control. This enables the new YZF-R6 to achieve acceleration characterized by a second acceleration curve beginning at 8,000 rpm and excellent top end power development that continues without stress past 12,000 rpm.

4) New-design intake system

To improve engine response in conjunction with the adoption of the new FI system, the air cleaner capacity has been increased (7.3 → 7.6 liters) along with the diameter of the throttle body (37 → 38 mm). The same "ram-air system" used on the existing model is adopted, and to accommodate the new FI system, the volumes of the intake air passages at the open and closed states have been optimized to produce even better perfor

5) New-design titanium muffler

New-design titanium mufflerThe exhaust system has also been completely re-designed for improved performance and weight reduction. The previous two-section interior structure of the diffuser has been replaced by a single-unit titanium structure. The double-layer tube structure with glass wool stuffed in between the two layers is given a curved shape that provides both outstanding exhaust efficiency and reduced noise. In addition, a lightweight aluminum outer cover for the silencer has been adopted along with other changes including an increased overall size for the exhaust system, new pipe length dimensions and joint position, new silencer expansion chamber ratio and changes in the sizes of the various tubing, all designed to bring out the new engine characteristics to the fullest. All in all, this new exhaust unit is a full kilogram lighter that the existing unit even when the weight of the new catalyzer element is added.

6) Other changes

Other changes include (1) clearing EU2 emissions standards, (2) optimization of the shape of the crankcase cover to improve oil return, (3) adoption of a lightweight aluminum oil cooler, (4) weight reduction through the use of plastic for some internal engine parts, (5) rare-earth element magneto adopted for a thinner ACM, (6) revision of shift rigidity and change in shift revolving mass and (7) adoption of a round radiator with excellent cooling performance with no increase in size compared to the previous unit.


From honda, yamaha, until TVS, from various cc. motor is very much now, with the adoption, from MotoGP. these products can make a driver feel MotoGP stars, the withdrawal Rossi. but in this blog there is more information to make a more convincing to be reliable in modifikator modify.

Aston Martin's One-77, in the amount of selling Limited

New also officially exhibited at the Paris Motor Show last October, Aston Martin's One-77 has been ordered by collectors around 100 cars. Reportedly, the new car will be released in 2009 later this year will be a car with the most expensive price to the present. Sports car that reportedly able to go with speed up to 320 km per hour, this will only be produced in small numbers. Aston Martin fix the price of 1 million Pounds Sterling or around Rp 18 billion more for each unit of a total of 77 units that will be produced. Although Aston Martin has not launch its own specifications of this product, but a lot of news circulating mention that the coupé with a capacity of two pieces will promote the 7.3 liter V12 engine in the front wheel drive system with rear-wheel drive. This machine is able to produce 700 horsepower with a maximum Torque 553 lb.-ft. Feasible if the car is claimed capable of reaching speeds of 320 km / hour. What's outstanding also mentioned the installation of six teeth with the acceleration of semi-automatic transmission system. A unique, original car factory UK will provide sports-car version of this wheel in the left and right depending on the reservation. Panel outside of the car will be made from aluminum, which is done entirely by hand, while the monocoque body structure of the car will be made from carbon fiber. It is estimated, the weight of this car overall to 1.5 tons. The appearance of this car can be quite 'thatcher' for a sports car. From some of the images that have been outstanding, that Aston Martin design apply the body with many fold and Fender behind the visible bulge. Effects of Strong also increasingly visible with the installation Velg with six fingers with a diameter large grille and a wider grille. Effects of fact, a more sporty look from the back of the car. Aston Martin install the tail Lamp, which resembles a form of a boomerang-shaped diffuser and canals that is large enough at the bottom of the display behind the car. With the installation of the diffuser, rear wheel and guaranteed the car has a strong jolt. Other features that also mention some of the sites are in the installation of the suspension height can be regulated, carbon brake disc based ceramics and Stability / traction control. Unfortunately there are no photographs showing the interior of this luxury sports car. Not clear why the numbers put Aston Martin 77 behind the name of the car. Some sources mention this related to the number of cars that will be released but I rarely call the number as luck. Clear the Aston Martin said that the number 77 is not related to the specifications of the car.

Silverstone reveals new MotoGP layout

Silverstone has unveiled the provisional circuit layout for the British round of the MotoGP World Championship, which it will host from 2010. The most significant addition to the present layout will be a new section of track running from the approach at Abbey corner to an 'Arrowhead' section at the inside of Becketts. The Arrowhead will then join up with the existing National Straight before entry into the final complex, therefore missing out the present Bridge corner. The Arrowhead and its approach should provide an excellent chance for overtaking and will be surrounded by several new spectator areas. It will also be overlooked by the grandstand at Becketts, providing fans with an opportunity to see two sections of track from one vantage point. Both MotoGP and British Superbike riders will also be pleased to see that the plans include the moving of grandstands and safety barriers at Woodcote. This will enable the circuit to build a new run off area at the fast entry to Pit Straight and dispose of the unpopular slow chicane seen in WSBK and BSB, currently a necessity for safety purposes. As part of the 'bike-friendly' efforts, additional sections of track will also be laid at Chapel and Club. The new plans form part of a £5 million investment by Silverstone, with work set to be carried out between November 2009 and March 2010. In addition to changes to the track, improvements to spectator viewing facilities will include moving some of the existing grandstands to bring them closer to the track. “Silverstone is one of the easiest circuits to get in and out of in the world, we have sizeable hard-standing car parks, and the facilities for teams, media and fans are second to none,” said Richard Phillips, managing director of Silverstone Circuits Limited. “We are happy with the infrastructure, but we now have an opportunity to make some exciting changes to the circuit and fundamental improvements to the viewing experience for fans. “The new Arrowhead on the inside of Becketts will be a major new feature of the circuit. The fast approach and sharp left should provide plenty of opportunities to overtake, making it a real focal point for spectators. The views will be fantastic, especially from the new spectator banking areas and grandstands we will be building around the Arrowhead.


MotoGP cost cutting rules announcedThe first steps in reducing the costs of competing in the MotoGP World Championship have been officially announced by the Grand Prix Commission, following a meeting at the FIM headquarters at Geneva on Wednesday. Made in response to the global financial crises and Kawasaki's factory withdraw, which has potentially reduced the 2009 MotoGP field to just four manufacturers and 17 riders, the six rule changes include the expected reduction in track and test time - plus a limit on engine changes - but also ban launch control, electronic suspension and ceramic composite materials for brake discs or pads. With the new racing season starting on April 12 and the 2009 machinery already built (click here for an insight into the aims and time constraints surrounding the new regulations) reducing running costs, recently described as 'huge' by LCR boss Lucio Cecchinello, was one area that could be most easily influenced. Maintenance and running costs will be lowered by cutting track time during a grand prix weekend, limiting post-race tests and extending engine life (during the second half of the season). GP track time will be reduced by cancelling the Friday morning free practice session (for all three classes) and reducing the three remaining MotoGP practice sessions - including qualifying - from one hour to 45 minutes. Warm-up time and race distance are unchanged. Post race testing will be allowed on just two occasions, after Catalunya (June 14) and Czech GP (August 16) and even then “test riders only are permitted.” Engine life will be extended by limiting each rider to five engines for the final eight rounds of 2009. “No changing of parts will be permitted except daily maintenance”, although no penalties for breaking the rule were announced.

MOTOGP » Gibernau to miss Qatar test

Sete Gibernau and the Guinea Ecuatorial Team will miss next weekend's Qatar test after the Spaniard suffered 'a slight ligament tear in his left shoulder' during training yesterday (Thursday).

The double MotoGP World Championship runner-up's shoulder is still recovering from surgery to remove previous metalwork and, according to his team, the 'accumulation of physical exertion at the recent MotoGP tests in Malaysia and his demanding training programme' caused the ligament tear.

Doctor Ginebreda Marti of the Institut Universitari Dexeus in Barcelona diagnosed the injury and recommended "rest, in particular from physical exertion in order to avoid further injury."

Keen to avoid any major complications before his return to premier-class racing in a little over a month's time, Gibernau and the team agreed to cancel their participation in the upcoming test (March 1-3) so Sete can focus on a full and swift recovery.

The 36-year-old, returning to MotoGP after two seasons in retirement, had been twelfth fastest at Sepang, which was the first test of 2009.

Having now opted to miss Qatar, Gibernau will have just one more test session - at Jerez from March 28-29 - before the season-opening Qatar night race on April 12.

Practice reduced as MotoGP cuts costs

Practice reduced as MotoGP cuts costs
By Matt Beer
Wednesday, February 18th 2009, 14:42 GMT
Practice time has been slashed and some electronic devices limited from the 2009 MotoGP season after the Grand Prix Commission ratified cost-cutting proposals today.
Friday morning practice has been cancelled for all three grand prix classes, and the remaining two MotoGP practice sessions plus qualifying have been shortened from one hour to 45 minutes. The 125cc and 250cc series will now have a sole qualifying session on a Saturday afternoon, with the former Friday qualifying sessions becoming practice.
Testing has been reduced too, with the regular post-race test days slimmed down to just two - at Catalunya and Brno. Only test riders will be allowed to run at these events.
Some technical changes have also been made, with electronic and hydraulic launch control systems, ceramic composite brakes, and electronic suspension systems all banned with immediate effect, and restrictions on engine use implemented for the latter part of the season.
For the eight rounds commencing with the Czech Grand Prix at Brno in August, each rider will be allowed to use no more than five engines in total.
The plans were submitted to motorcycle racing's governing body, the FIM, after being suggested by the MotoGP manufacturers during meetings in recent months.
Many in the sport have called for more radical cost-cutting measures to be taken from 2010, following the lead set by Formula One.
MotoGP costs have been in the spotlight since Kawasaki announced it was pulling its works team out of the championship. Efforts to keep the team in MotoGP as a private entry - and therefore maintain a 19-bike field - are ongoing.
