Rossi Leave Yamaha for Ducati


Quoted from motoGP.com:

After weeks of speculation in the MotoGP paddock official confirmation came from Yamaha, Ducati and Valentino Rossi on Sunday at Brno that the reigning World Champion would make the switch from the Japanese to the Italian factory for the 2011 season.

Speaking about his decision to seek a new challenge in the next instalment of his illustrious career Rossi, who has won four MotoGP World Championships in his time with Yamaha, explained the motivation for his change following a seven-year relationship with the manufacturer.

“I think that here in Yamaha my work is finished,” said Rossi. “The situation within Yamaha has changed a lot since 2004. Now the M1 is maybe the best bike in MotoGP, Yamaha have great riders, so it looks like they don’t need me any more.”

Rossi has penned a two-year deal with Ducati and is extremely excited at the prospect of linking up with the Bologna factory. “I’m very curious and very motivated for this new challenge and I think it will be very interesting,” he stated.

“I think an Italian rider on an Italian bike will be great for all Italian fans. I think we’ll have a lot of fans cheering for us.”

Attention has already turned to the end-of-season test at Valencia in November where Rossi hopes to test the Ducati Desmosedici for the first time, but a decision on whether he will be able to due to contractual commitments is yet to be made.

“If Yamaha say no I’ll be very upset and sad,” said the 31 year-old. “Only Honda have said no to me in the past and that relationship was very different to the one between me and Yamaha. If I can’t do it then I don’t understand the relationship between me and Yamaha!”

You might be thinking that this is just a modified version of Yamaha 135LC with the rear drum brake replaced to disc brake. But look closer to the second picture, where you can see the rear tail light is not the same like the current model of Yamaha Jupiter MX. Hopefully, we can also see the introduction of FI system to this King of Moped. Then, it would be perfect bike with no contest from other makes.

We have been waiting for this one for a very long time. So, Yamaha, please launch this fast!

2010 Honda EX-5 Malaysia Brochure

Honda EX5 Brochure

Found this on the workshop where I used to buy my bike. I didn’t know that the Honda EX5 is still available with the electric starter option. Based on my previous knowledge, Honda only produced the electric starter version of the EX5 only for a brief period but, now, it is back. Or does it never go? The back page is after the jump.

Yamaha Fuel Injection System for Small Motorcycle R&D Technical Review

Yamaha Fuel Injection for Small Motorcycle

This article is dated 20/08/2003. It has been 7 years that Yamaha have started to research and develop fuel injection system for small motorcycle. It have many challenges like sensors placement, compacting the injector module and how to make it use less electricity.

Now, we already have small motorcycle that uses the FI system that has been developed that is Yamaha X1R in Thailand and the first fuel injected bike in Malaysia that is Yamaha FZ-150i. Honda has been the first manufacturer that build the FI small bike by the introduction of Honda Wave 110i 125i with PGM-FI.

Anyone who likes to know about how FI able to be ported from automobile to small motorcycle or thinking is it possible to modify their carburetted bike to FI system, should read this article. Here it is: Read the rest of this entry »

Yamaha SRX and SRV on Yamaha Malaysia Website

Yamaha SRX 100cc and SRV 100cc along with Yamaha 125ZR and Yamaha 135LC

While browsing to look at 2010 Yamaha Malaysia bikes line-up, I stumble upon this two familiar bikes that is Yamaha SRX and Yamaha SRV which already exists on the market for long time ago (in year 2003, I guess). Now, it has make its comeback to the website. I wonder why it is being featured in the website now. Is Yamaha Malaysia planning to sell these bike along with the newly introduced Yamaha Lagenda 115Z and 115ZR?

We know Yamaha always introduce bike that have radical styling, latest technology and extraordinary design. SRX and SRV by this definition looks outdated, old and seems out of place with all the great bikes that they have like Yamaha 125ZR, Yamaha 135LC and Yamaha Lagenda. Read the rest of this entry »

Modenas Electric Bike based on CT chassis: CTRIC

Modenas Electric Bike: CTRIC

Modenas Electric Bike: CTRIC

On July 2, 2010, Malaysian newspaper, New Strait Times, has released this news about Modenas electric bike built on Modenas CT chassis. It features 1kW of motor (equivalent to 1.34hp). The battery can be charged from zero based to fully charged for 3.5 hours. At 39cent per charge, CTRIC can be taken to 65km (my daily ride is less than 30km, so, there is a market for this bike). Suggested price for this bike is RM5,000, but it is said that the maintainance cost is 50% less than the internal combustion engine since it doesn’t have to use engine oil, filters, spark plugs and so on.

Not available yet. Modenas is now waiting for green light by the parliament to make this bike can be taken to the public road.
