Suzuki Boulevard S40

Suzuki Boulevard S40 cruisers have always competed with Honda’s and this model had to have some stiff competition coming from its threatening opponent. In order to meet the market’s requests, Honda launched the Shadow VLX, a cruiser equipped with a 583cc V-twin motor which was to compete with the single-cylinder S40. The Shadow VLX is a unique cruiser in Honda’s line-up. Its old-school hardtail-style rear suspension, the classic teardrop tank and low seat height are all attractive features.

5-speed transmission with low-maintenance belt-drive system - the drive belt is quiet, durable, simple to adjust and clean
40 cubic inch, SOHC, single-cylinder engine with TSCC cylinder head and high mass crankshaft - produces strong low-end power and torque
Black engine case and cylinder with polished cylinder head fins for a finished appearance
Zinc-plated cylinder mounting bolts - high quality plated finish is corrosion resistant and blends with black engine color for a more detailed appearance
Headlight switches off during start-up to reduce load on the battery
Electric starter with automatic decompression system for quick, easy engine starting

Kawasaki also presents an excellent motorcycle for first-time buyers seeking entry to the cruiser lifestyle. With a low seat height, friendly power delivery and an affordable purchase price, the Vulcan 500 LTD makes it easy to develop those all-important riding skills.

Although I previously mentioned the V Star Custom as a competitor for the S50, it is a stronger opponent for the bike’s smaller sibling, the S40. The long and chopperesque V Star Custom is the lightest of the Stars, which means great handling and performance are along for the ride, too.

Ducati Streetfighter S

The Ducati Streetfighter S power house is protected by twin coolant radiators, carefully curved in pure naked style for optimum performance and stunning with visual effect. The upper radiator is assisted by lightweight, high flow electric fan assemblies while the lower sits in the front of the belly pan, which also houses a highly efficient oil heat exchanger.

Having more experience and success with twin-cylinder high performance engines than any other manufacturer, the air-cooled L-Twin remains central to Ducati's philosophy of motorcycling.

This experience, plus constant investment in quality by design, advanced materials and engineering techniques, has enabled a distance between service intervals of 7,500 miles, making Ducati ownership even more enjoyable than ever.

The massive Streetfighter 2-1-2 exhaust system is made from weight-saving 1mm thick steel and flows from 58mm to 63.5mm diameter pipes. The system uses two lambda probes to ensure precise fuel mapping for optimum performance and an electronic valve in the mid-section to achieve a wide spread of power.

The cannon-style, vertically stacked mufflers sport the same finishes as the Superbike family: Brushed steel for the Streetfighter.

Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 engineers

Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 engineers, the frame of the Dorsoduro 750 Factory is a sculpture in aluminium and steel derived from racing technology. The narrow trellis is designed specifically to complement the typical Motard riding style, with the bike gripped firmly between the legs, ensuring superior agility, precision and effectiveness.

The lateral frame plates and shell mould cast swingarm are made from aluminium: a material that not only offers maximum lightness, but is visually stunning it its own right and adds a premium touch to the bike. The swingarm is linked to a laterally mounted monoshock: this allowed the exhaust to be located under the saddle, benefiting both the design and the balance of the bike as well as affording easier access for adjustments.

The upside down front fork of the Dorsoduro 750 Factory, with adjustable hydraulic damping, and the adjustable laterally mounted rear monoshock allow the user to set the bike up for perfect suspension response in any situation.

Type: Motorcycle
Model: Dorsoduro 750

Satria Suzuki FXR 120

Years ago we know also issued Satria Suzuki FXR 120 and curtain-style with Movistar Suzuki. Or F1ZR from Yamaha with khusu color (if not mistaken la Marlboro Yamaha).
Now the strategy is re-used, for what? Motor that uses special frills edition will make an exclusive (even though the motor was mass production.) This affects the psychological prospective buyers, especially if color same with motor racing, take them to think at least the same color as the racers idol (maybe not).
There's nothing wrong with this strategy if you want to be exploited further, particularly Rossi's Yamaha can take advantage of the moment Strikes Back. Put Jupiter MX or V-Ixion edition Fiat Yamaha Team can surely attract more customers.
For Kawasaki (Logo status of its MotoGP team still vacillate) can use the color green. Well this was done was always especially Green Stabilo on Ninja 250R and the Athlete. But according to some information on the Ninja 250 green color less attractive than other colors.

Crosscage hydrogen

Suzuki’s Crosscage hydrogen fuel cell powered electric bike is making its debut tomorrow at the 40th Tokyo Motor Show. The fuel cell for the Suzuki Crosscage was designed by Intelligent Energy and features its patented air-cooled system.

The Crosscage concept also features a semi-naked design and the major feature of a crosscage frame. Two large bars provide the bike chassis with stiffness, intersecting in the middle of the bike and it’s a design that may be employed on a production bike in the future if Suzuki can show that it’s rigid enough.

From the looks of it, this concept’s hydrogen tank is carried right at the center of the bike, which should be a boon for safety considering that the hydrogen would be stored at very high pressures.

Besides the fact that the bike is powered by a fuel cell and batteries, the bike looks pretty sporty. What is rather interesting, though, are the suspension systems on the bike. That single-sided front fork is rather common these days on high-performance bikes, but single-sided forks have not yet hit the masses. To stiffen things up where the fork tubes meet, Suzuki appears to have added a strengthening linkage of some sort.

Kawasaki Concours 14 sport

A rather small storage compartment that was on the previous C-14’s fuel tank has now been replaced by a more usable compartment on the left portion of the inner fairing directly below the left grip.

This new space is not only bigger but is sealed shut via an electromagnet that locks when the ignition is off or the bike is moving above 25 mph. When the ignition is on, or the bike is (somehow!) moving under 2 mph, the compartment is unlocked. You’re good to get at least a pair of gloves in there, maybe a mobile phone, and possibly even more.

Where the old tank top storage existed is a new plastic “tankbag panel” with integrated hooks, and now allows use of either a magnetic or non-magnetic tankbag. A Kawasaki bag designed specifically for the Connie is en route soon according to Edmondson.

Sitting just below the new storage is a new rheostat dial that will be a welcome feature to all those looking at the new Connie. It’s your new heated grip temp adjuster!

Although the numerous ride-enhancing features listed above came about mostly at the request of riders and not so much from Kawi engineers, Kawasaki did have every intention of giving the new Concours updated linked ABS (K-ACT) and traction control (KTRC).

The previous Connie was available with optional ABS. The 2010 model also has optional ABS, but now it's also a new second-generation version of the linked system found on the Voyager. The system on the Connie is 25% smaller, 30% lighter and operates with an upgraded ECU.

Kawasaki Concours 14 sport touring that was carried to make every rider who rode the iron horse will look very handsome. Design of a typical sport can be seen from the form of head lamp combined with a windshield and fairing of character. Touring impression strengthened by the position of the steering handlebars that are designed high and trunk (box) on the right-left motor. Advanced features are also equipped to facilitate motorists during the trip. Kawasaki Concours 14 features such as the K-ACT (for ABS brake systems) and KTRC (for wheel traction control), all these features into a single unit on the instrument panel, such as horns and lights.

But what really sets the new linked-ABS apart is the rider-selectable level of linking. For starters, ABS cannot be disabled, but by pressing the orange K-ACT button (bike must be stopped to select modes) the rider can choose the “high-combined” effect in Mode 2 or the lesser-combined effect in Mode 1.

K-ACT mode selection impacts the amount of front brake application (only one of the two front calipers are involved regardless of Mode 1 or 2) when applying only the rear brake. The amount of linking applied to the rear when using the front brake remains constant.
