CBR1000RR is the lightest, most compact, and best performing motorcycle in its class, making it the standard against which all other literbikes are measured. And for 2009, it’s available with Honda’s high-tech electronically controlled Combined ABS for the ultimate in sport bike braking performance.

Performance and style. No two elements are more important on a sportbike, and the Honda CBR1000RR has them both in spades. Of course, when a bike is bred on the racetracks of the world using DNA gleaned from Honda's MotoGP championship-winning machines, would you expect anything but the best? And the CBR backs it up, packing state-of-the-art features like our available Electronic Combined Anti-lock Braking System (C-ABS) and the revolutionary Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD) that leave other literbikes on the trailer. Winning Road Racing World's “2009 1000cc Shootout” merely confirmed the CBR1000RR's supremacy, with 2010 certain to continue its legacy of class-defining power, light weight, handling and looks (checkout the three stunning colors).

- Compact, liquid-cooled DOHC 16-valve 999cc four-stroke inline four-cylinder engine features bore and stroke dimensions of 76mm x 55.1mm.
- Removable cylinder block with Nikasil-coated cylinders.
- Sixteen-valve cylinder head features 30.5mm intake and 24mm exhaust valves with a 12.3:1 compression ratio for efficient combustion and high horsepower.
- Larger titanium intake valves create a lighter valve train and feature double-spring design for optimum performance at high rpm.
- Intake ports use latest shot-peening technology that improves power and torque characteristics.
- Cam-pulser location between the middle cylinders allows a narrower cylinder head and frame.
- Direct shim-under-bucket valve actuation system ensures high-rpm durability and allows 16,000-mile valve maintenance intervals.
- Forged-aluminum thin-domed, high-strength pistons feature molybdenum coating for reduced friction.
- Lightweight nutless connecting rods.
- Iridium-tip spark plugs improve fuel combustion and performance.
- Dual Stage Fuel Injection (DSFI) (see Technology Section).
- 46mm throttle bodies feature Denso injectors with lightweight valving for faster reaction time and 12 holes per injector to optimize mixture atomization, combustion efficiency and power.
- Auto-enriching system is integrated into Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) module, eliminating the need for a manual choke.
- Idle Air Control Valve (IACV) minimizes torque reaction and smoothes response to small throttle changes through gradual reductions of air and fuel intake when the throttle is opened and closed.
- Ignition Interrupt Control system works with IACV and FI mapping to enhance driveability.
- Smaller and lighter ECU provides two 3-D fuel-injection maps for each cylinder and two 3-D ignition maps for cylinder pairs, creating ideal fuel mixture and spark-advance settings for superb rideability.
- MotoGP-derived twin-tunnel ram-air system allows a high volume of cooler air to the 9.7-liter airbox for linear power delivery and incredible engine performance.
- Butterfly valves inside the ram-air ducts open and close depending on throttle opening and engine rpm for optimum performance.
- Compact, low-mount exhaust system design reduces rear bodywork size and incorporates exhaust valve and catalyst, contributing to significantly improved mass centralization, and reducing roll and yaw inertia.
- High-capacity radiator incorporates twin cooling fans and allows a more compact cowl for reduced drag coefficient.
- Maintenance-free automatic cam-chain tensioner.
- Starter gears located on the right side to produce narrow engine that allows for increased lean angle.
- Patented slipper-clutch design uses a center cam-assist mechanism for easier actuation. Unlike an ordinary slipper clutch where the pressure plate moves from side to side, the Honda clutch moves both the center cam assist and the pressure plate to provide additional slipper effect.
- Nine-plate clutch is compact and tough, featuring durable friction plate material.
- Durable #530 O-ring-sealed drive chain.

Suzuki GSXR-1000

Suzuki GSXR-1000 is a race-bred performance machine with outrageous performance hottest appropriate to the track. And as the Suzuki gsxr 1000 packs even further power, handling, and braking ability than its capable predecessor, this recent iteration shows off a host of race-inspired mechanical advancements meant to maintain it at the head of the crotch rocket heap even if 95% of riders are not skilled decently to amply maximize its potential.

Suzuki GSXR 1000 is a super sports motorcycle, introduced in 1986, available in blue, black, white, silver, gray and red color options. The fuel tank, which is short and narrow, has a capacity of about 18 liter (4.8 gallons). The distance from seat to handlebars is less making the reach easier. It has low foot pegs and a lowdown seat height - all intended for riders' comfort and mobility. The instrument cluster features include an analog tachometer with rpm indicator, digital speedometer, and new gear indicator. There is also an LCD odometer-trip meter, coolant temperature gauge, and clock and EFI diagnostics. The engine is 998.6cc and has features for increased power, torque and acceleration, and reduction of friction.

Engine : Truly, the original "GSX-R1000" come with 999cc of engine capacity, it's 4 stroke type with 4 cylinder and liquid cooled system, it's to get more power and torque on GSXR 1000.

Yamaha Stryker

Befitting a bike of the custom cruiser genre, the Stryker boasts raked out front forks with a large 21-inch front wheel, a chunky 210-section rear wheel, and the fuel tank features flame decals to add to its take-no-prisoners attitude. Low bars, minimalist fenders and a low-slung one-piece seat also contribute to the custom chopper look.

The dual exhaust pipes have been thoughtfully bent to improve aesthetics and the front and rear wheel guards are made from steel.

The 2011 Yamaha Stryker's rear brake light is comprised of LEDs and it's possible that the design may have more appeal than the Honda Fury with its plastic rocker covers. Colours include Impact blue, Reddish copper and Raven black.

• 1304cc (80 cubic inch), liquid-cooled, short stroke, SOHC, 4-valve per cylinder, fuel injected, 60° V-twin powerplant pumps out impressive power and torque for excellent cruising performance.

• Uneven firing interval, bore & stroke dimensions and special ignition & injection mapping all contribute to excellent torque output and that classic V-twin pulse feeling

• Liquid-cooling not only allows for higher state of tune because it maintains more stable operating temperatures, but also reduces mechanical noise for a quieter engine.

• In an effort to maintain the classic air-cooled appearance of the engine, cooling fins have been added as a styling highlight.

• The short stroke engine design reduces the “height” of the engine, while the 60 degree “V” makes the engine more compact thereby centralizing mass and lowering the center of gravity for lighter, more responsive handling.

• One-piece cylinder heads feature 4-valves per cylinder to provide optimum breathing efficiency for maximum power output.

• Stylish chromed cylinder head covers.

• The SOHC valve train features 36mm intake and 32mm exhaust valves with special single coil springs for great power and torque. Valves angles are set at 20 degrees from centre.

• Specially designed roller rockers activate the valves. The rocker system allows a greater amount of valve lift without causing excessive camshaft wear and friction. The slipper portion of the rocker arm features a needle bearing which reduces wear and slide resistance (friction). The camshafts have been specially designed for use with roller rockers.

• Mikuni dual bore, 40mm throttle body fuel injection system with TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) and ISC (Idle Speed Control). This is a “closed loop” system that utilizes an oxygen sensor in the exhaust. The sensor “sniffs” the spent exhaust gases and feeds back info to the ECU which in turn adjusts the fuel/air mixture for maximum power with minimum emissions. The oxygen sensor is located before the mufflers, so the use of slip-on mufflers will not affect this system. Each injector features 12 holes and a dual spray pattern for better fuel atomization and more complete combustion chamber filling. There is one injector per cylinder. Fuel injection benefits include improved fuel economy; choke less operation, reduced emissions, and smoother running.

• High pressure fuel pump is located in a separate sub tank below the seat.

• 2 into 1 into 2 exhaust system features dual slash cut mufflers which provide a specially developed exhaust note that accentuates the V-Twin rumble. The engineers call it the “sound of acceleration”.

• A 3-way honeycomb catalyzer is located at the entry point to the mufflers. The catalyzer reduces harmful exhaust emissions.

• Smooth-shifting, 5-speed transmission with 5th gear o

Honda CBR1000RR ABS

Honda CBR1000RR ABS features Honda's electronic Combined ABS. This all-new ECU-controlled, hydraulically actuated system provides accurate braking force distribution to both wheels. ABS is controlled by a hydroelectronic unit and stroke simulator to ensure precise operation. Benefits include consistent lever pressure without the pulsing often associated with ABS systems. Application of rear brake does not result in immediate front brake activation unless lock-up is sensed, allowing an experienced rider to use rear brake in a normal manner during spirited riding. Combined ABS components are smaller and lighter than conventional hydraulic ABS designs, and have been located nearer to the center of the machine, enhancing mass centralization and reducing unsprung weight.
- Super-light aluminum-alloy hollow-spoke wheels feature race-spec 3.5 x 17-inch front and 6.0 x 17-inch rear dimensions.
- Centrally mounted 4.7-gallon fuel tank is positioned low in the frame, increasing mass centralization and allowing a more compact design. This design positions the rider farther forward for optimum handling.

Kawasaki GPZ500S

The GPZ 500 has been being manufactured since 1987 and suffered no major changes over the years. The bike was also known as GPX 500R, EX 500, Ninja 500 and Ninja 500R.

The Kawasaki GPZ500S begs to be revved, adopting a banshee-style wail to accompany super fast acceleration over 7000rpm. Down low the Kawasaki GPZ500S can be a bit lumpy but it’s not a major flaw. Smooth and reliable, owners of the Kawasaki GPZ500S describe it as “bullet proof”. You could be hard-pushed not to think it was a four.

Really old Kawasaki GPZ500S's tend to look a bit ragged: suspension, brakes and bodywork need particular attention. However, overall build quality of the Kawasaki GPZ500S is good and the engine’s reliability is without question. High mileages are common but check for dents and bumps: many Kawasaki GPZ500S are ex-learner or courier bikes.

Following the footsteps of the R1, Yamaha introduced the first R6 in 1999. In was a light (429.9 lbs wet weight) and powerful (120 hp at 13,000 rpm) middleweight super sport motorcycle which could do 155.3 mph if you’d dare challenge it. The carbureted 599 cc liquid-cooled, inline four-cylinder; DOHC, 16-valves engine was a real revver, but still managed 68 Nm at 11,500 rpm so the immense potential of this bike was soon spotted by riders who had seen enough of the Honda CBR600F, Kawasaki ZX-6R and Suzuki GSX-R600.

The updated 2001 Yamaha YZF-R6 featured a quick-release number plate hanger and LED taillights. Yamaha didn’t intervene at performance figures so the 2001 model year was just a cooler, but not angrier R6.

But 2003 was the year of changes for the notorious model and the fuel-injection system, swingarm, five-spoke wheels and a revised frame surely suited it well. Still, horsepower and torque didn’t increase with much, but how easy the power was obtained and put on the track was the most important advantage.

In 2006, Yamaha launched an all-new R6 which wasn’t just a race replica, but a true racing bike with headlights, mirrors and street rubber. They aimed towards perfection and the sharp new bike looked like nothing ever seen before. This is when the R6 got the Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle systems and the 600cc engine’s performance went above the 130 hp psychological limit (131 hp at 14,500 rpm) while torque was still 68 Nm but at 6,930.

The 2008 model year was only left to feature the Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake as a new, cool system and it did, making the Yamaha R6 the most sophisticated middleweight super sport bike out there.

Yamaha TZR 125R

Yamaha TZR 125 R second generation (1987/88 s / d 1992).

Still remember the exoticism Yamaha TZR 250 instead? So this time I will try to discuss about the version of 'Tiny' from the legend that is TZR 125. Born of a genetic 'blue blood' predessor the Yamaha RD 125 LC, TZR 125 gives a new nuance to the modern sport horse type iron his day. And is a variant of 'bonsai' of the TZR 250 big brother who was born a year before the 1986, this bike really been a target for young people at that time, certainly before the variant Honda NSR 125 came out two years later.

How is the speed freaker beginner class fell in love with a superior product manufacturers of this tuning fork logo, and brought the concept of naked sport early appearance, this bike has brought refreshment to the similar products. Try to imagine since the end of an era 70'an until the early '80s, bars 125cc motorcycle model naked bike from Yamaha that time it was only guarded by the RD 125 to RD 125 LC, which carries the appearance of so-so only.

But after TZR 125 first generation (coded 2R *, 2T *, 3P *, 3T *) was born, has shifted the look of a modern impression of old skool RD family. And comes with twin-spar alloy frame type of the famous light and rigid to bend have been invited to bulldoze this dimotor installed perfectly. Not to mention the improved engine single cylinder 125cc liquid cooler than the RD-generation performance has been improved here and there to be able to provide sensation to be invited to bend the streets. 26hp@10.200 bursts of energy accompanied by shock torque rpm 1.8 rpm kg-m@10.000, really feels right for enthusiasts of speed in driving.

Yamaha TZR 125 N first generation (1987 s / d 1988).

One year since his success paved, in 1988 this bike comes with a fresher look with the addition of the fairing body sector. Not much has changed from TZR 125 from either side of the engine, frame, and legs that still relies on a telescopic shock absorbers.

Yamaha TZR 125 Belgarda series last generation (1993).
Second generation models were maintained until well into 1992, until the end of this year, again TZR 125 experienced changes from the side of the frontal appearance. Racy style of the older sister revealed abis kemotor TZR 250, thanks to a touch of home designs from Italy Belgarda it creates an exotic landscape like motor sport from the land mafia that was followed. Not a few racing body kit that attaches TZR 125 4DL this series or many European consumers called it a TZR Belgarda series, starting from a set of Brembo rate freeze, shock absorbers brand Marzocchi upside down, until artificial crackcase Moto Minarelli has been stuck in your body.

Yamaha Zuma 125

Yamaha Zuma 125 has basically replaced the Vino 125 which is now no longer available in the United States. It makes sense that Yamaha didn't want to have competition between the two 125cc bikes and the Zuma is more refined than the Vino. If you are a fan of the original Zuma then you will love the Zuma 125. It has everything that you wished the 50cc model had.

First impression is you either love it or hate it. It looks vastly different than most other scooters on the road. From its two large dual round headlamps & tail lights, larger rugged tires, handlebar "wings" etc. At the time I had looked at the Vino 125 and the Zuma 125 and I preferred the Vino's more classic look and chrome but I will admit that the Zuma rode a lot better.

Yamaha made a lot of changes to this scooter and all for the good. It has a 125cc fuel injected air cooled 4 stroke engine that has plenty of power. Add 12" wheels with off road type tread and you have a stable scooter. The brakes work very well with the front disc and the rear drum that can stop you on a dime. The Zuma also has a larger seat for a passenger and dual shocks to make for a very forgiving ride. Open the large seat and you have 5.2 gallons of storage space to carry a full face helmet and some a few smaller items. The gas filler cap is also revealed by lifting the seat. The seat is lockable like most scooters as well.

Beta RR 450

The response from the European press following the launch of the 2012 BETA RR Enduro range has been outstanding.

The all new, specially designed for BETA, Sachs front forks have proven to provide the bike with a much greater "race oriented" feel and a wider range of adjustments. The thicker, reinforced and therefore stiffer frame gives the bike even greater stability and faster cornering whilst the new exhaust has provided a smoother power curve and yet it is even quieter. The new Brembo clutch also received lots of praise from the test riders and journalists.

Honda cbr 600 rr

Besides the new braking system, the other obvious change to the Honda cbr 600 rr is the new colors available. Honda will continue to make the CBR in the flagship "Honda Red" scheme, there are a few new (interesting to say the least) paint schemes for the new 2009 CBR 600RR. It seems that "throwback" is the name of the game these days, from sports jerseys and hats, to even movie remakes.

Engine Type 599cc liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder
Bore And Stroke 67mm x 42.5mm
Induction Dual Stage Fuel Injection (DSFI) with 40mm throttle bodies, Denso 12-hole injectors
Ignition Computer-controlled digital transistorized with three-dimensional mapping
Compression Ratio 12.2:1
Valve Train DOHC; four valves per cylinder

Front Suspension 41mm inverted HMAS cartridge fork with spring-preload, rebound and compression damping adjustability; 4.7 inches travel
Rear Suspension Unit Pro-Link HMAS single shock with spring preload, rebound and compression damping adjustability; 5.1 inches travel
Front Brake Dual radial-mounted four-piston calipers with 310mm discs
Rear Brake Single 220mm disc
Front Tire 120/70ZR-17 radial
Rear Tire 180/55ZR-17 radial

With all the success the of the 2007 & 2008 Honda CBR 600RR, there is quite an anticipation to see what the new generation is going to bring to the table. The 07/08 CBR 600RR was unanimously voted as the "best middle weight sports bike" by every magazine on the planet. As an owner of a 2007 CBR 600RR I can tell you that it is truly a work of art, and a giant of race engineering. Having a reputation like that will garner much fanfare and even greater expectation.

Honda like most other motorcycle companies remain secretive about their up coming releases, they keep everything under wraps almost until the day of release, then suddenly bombard you with all the new info you need to know.

The greatest quality of big V-twin motors is that they deliver loads of torque from just above idle and that of Vulcan’s achieves peak 141 lb-ft of torque at just 2,800 rpm. That’s why you don’t get a sixth gear and also why fuel consumption won’t be that bad after all. The engine and tranny connect through a 220mm flywheel just so that power delivery would be smooth, not only impressive.

Given the specific engine and tranny, all Vulcans are built on a steel double-cradle frame bolted in between a 49mm telescopic fork offering 5.9 inches of travel and a triangulated steel tube swingarm offering 3.9 inches of travel. This thing rides on a pair of 16-inch wheels and the rear one features a 200mm tire, just so you get a clue on how the engine influences all of the other features of this motorcycle. But because it is mounted so low on the frame, the engine (which also features forged pistons and alloy connecting rods) has everything to do with the 5.3 inches of ground clearance which also allows for a fairly low seat height of only 26.8 inches.

Any sport bike would be proud of the front 300mm discs with four-piston calipers brakes while secure rear braking performance is ensured by a cruiser-like disc measuring 320mm in diameter and working with dual piston caliper.

KAWASAKI KX 450 F engineers have matched the high-tech engine to a new four-speed transmission. Combined with a manual, multi-disc wet clutch, the four-speed transmission enables the rider to take advantage of the engine’s inherently broad powerband on the racetrack; from accelerating out of turns to high-speed straights, the rider can use the KX450F’s precise throttle control to adjust speed nearly instantaneously. And to protect the underside of the engine and transmission, the KX450F comes with a lightweight aluminum skid place.

The KAWASAKI KX 450 F chassis has been designed to help the rider put the engine’s power to the ground. To do this, Kawasaki engineers combined their experience designing steel perimeter KX frames and techniques used to construct the Ninja® ZX™-10R sport bike chassis to create an all-new aluminum perimeter frame. Comprised of forged, extruded and cast aluminum parts, the strong twin-spar design gives the KX450F optimum balance of torsional and longitudinal rigidity.

The KAWASAKI KX 450 F utilizes newly designed, high-capacity Denso radiators, which provide superior cooling under racing conditions. With its tightly packed radiator cores and new fin design, the new radiators improve heat dispersion for consistent engine power characteristics and dependability.

TRIUMPH STREET TRIPLE knew from the very beginning of the Daytona 675 project that they were going to build a Speed Triple-style variant. So while the world’s motorcycle press was at the Daytona’s Sepang launch in Malaysia, Triumph engineers were already road testing the mockup of what would become the Street Triple. This foresight—knowing that the fully faired Daytona would eventually be stripped of its trousers—prompted designers to hide fairing mounting hardware inside the frame, so there are no unsightly brackets cluttering the frame’s external surfaces. This allows the Daytona and the Street Triple to share the exact same frame and swingarm. Altering the swingarm mounting point (for which the frame is designed to accommodate) and tweaked offset on the tripleclamps make for handling a little more stable than the Daytona’s (rake is up one degree to 24.3 degrees, trail is 95 mm from 87 mm and wheelbase remains 1,395 mm).

One of the few criticisms of the Daytona 675 was for its tall seat, so the Street Triple has a new rear subframe that lowers the perch 25 mm to a more reasonable 800 mm (31.5 inches). Easing the leg’s reach to the ground is the narrowness of the machine (photographs do not entirely do justice to its slim profile) and from the saddle, it scarcely feels wider than a V-twin. Each millimetre that can be carved from seat height makes a motorcycle more appealing to the short legged, but Triumph pruned a little too much foam from the Street Triple’s seat. After spending the morning on a tester with a gel seat (a $288 accessory), the switch to a machine with a stock seat left me squirming miserably within 20 kilometres. Other hacks had similar complaints, and Triumph officials vowed to return to the factory to find out who pinched the stuffing.

Suspension up front is a 41 mm Kayaba fork with 120 mm of travel, while the Kayaba rear shock has marginally greater travel. Settings are a good compromise between firm and supple, and even at elevated speeds, the Street Triple doesn’t wallow in corners. Brakes up front are paired 308 mm floating rotors with Nissin two-piston sliding calipers. A single 220 mm rotor with single-piston caliper handles the rear. They are strong but not supersport sensitive, and a good compromise for the street. Perhaps the only real trouble with the Street Triple is how to position it for sensitive North American buyers. It is svelte enough (at 167 kg/368 lb) and the controls are supple enough for riders of modest experience, but it is also a powerful, track-day capable machine, directly descended from one of the best thoroughbred sport bikes (the 2006 Bike of the Year award-winning Daytona 675). The Street Triple transcends its modest displacement and embodies a characteristic rare in motorcycling: a bike that can be many different things to many different people.

Suzuki M1800R

Suzuki M1800R is a true legend in more ways than one. The throbbing V-twin that runs this bike has two of the largest pistons ever put in a bike. All of the M1800R is built in flowing style. You can almost see the imaginary curved line that sweeps out from the front to the rear. The thunderous roar of the M1800R is a great way of saying, you've arrived.
The M1800 R is powered by a monstrous 1,783cc, 4-stroke, liquid-cooled 54 degree V-twin engine that generates about 125bhp @ 6,200 rpm making it one of the most powerful bikes ever built. A 5 speed gearbox with a shaft final drive is how all that power gets to the road. At 315kg kerb weight, the M1800R is huge and thus steady on the highway even at the highest speeds. Handling is of the finest quality that one can expect from a bike like this one.

Engine capacity 1783cc
Type Four stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 54° V-twin
Bore 112mm x 90.5mm
