NSR-World.com: The Ultimate Honda NSR Guide

After digging on the net for more information about Honda NSR, I've found this NSR World website that tells a lot of story about it. The information there are indeed priceless and the history there are well written. Let me show you one of its story about 1994 Honda NSR250R MC28. Below is the excerpt taken from NSR World.
1994~ NSR250R MC28 In November 1993 the first MC28 went on sale. The styling was only subtly changed, with the seat unit and nose fairing mimicing the factory NSR500 and NSR250 respectively. There was one major styling difference though... the Pro-Arm rear swingarm. This swingarm, originally designed and used on the RC30 for endurance racing, was the last word in styling!

2011 Modenas CTric Electric Bike

[caption id="attachment_4457" align="aligncenter" width="640" caption="2011 Modenas CTric Electric Bike"][/caption]

Modenas CTRic (pronounced citric) has been made available for test ride at the Modenas Carnival last few week at GTMax Motor, Shah Alam. I have taken the opportunity to test ride since I have never ride an electric bike before. The test ride are great since it gives me a feel of how electric bike can deliver its power and how it is different than the normal internal combustion bike.

On the initial start up, after turning the key, there is a switch on the right hand side that we need to set to 'D' that refer to 'Drive' position. There 3 position of the switch that is D, N and R. Yes, R refer to 'Reverse'. I don't think the R function will be used regularly. After that has been done, the bike is now ready to go. The sound of the engine at this time is completely silent (as expected from an electric bike).

LS2 Helmets: 1st ECE Standard Launching in Malaysia

[caption id="attachment_4421" align="aligncenter" width="598" caption="LS2 Helmets"][/caption]

I like the fact that most of LS2 helmets features the double visor. There are two visor equipped for day and night riding. The sunvisor are placed inside the clear visor and can be instantly pop-up by using a manual switch on the bottom side of the helmet. The double visor not only appear on the full-face version but also for the open face version and motocross version. The price are also not too expensive as compared to AGV and other FF helmet. It is about RM250-500 depends on the model.

Shinko Evo SR877 Motorcycle Tyre Review

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="640" caption="Shinko Evo SR877"][/caption]

I have been riding my Lagenda 115ZR for about a month with Shinko Evo SR877 and the results is great.

In one sentence I can say; Shinko SR877 makes me drive faster because it grips and make stopping better.

This tyre has made me ride better since the tyre is grippy and this helps greatly in accelerating and stopping. There is one situation that I have encounter while I was riding my bike near the traffic light road that proven the grip of this tyre. A bus have stopped abruptly in front of me while I was following it closely to overtake it, at that time the space on the right can't be used since there is a car there so, what I can do is to brake as hard as I can and hope the bike will stop. And yes, the bike stops well without any skidding and the danger is aborted. I think this is due to the medium-soft compound used for this Shinko Evo SR877. With that in mind, I don't mean for you to do this while using Shinko tyre or any tyre that matter since that is the situation is not planned. Drive safely and always wear the helmet!

Honda NSC110: New Standard Commuter

[caption id="attachment_4276" align="aligncenter" width="640" caption="Honda NSC110 Sketch Drawing"][/caption] Honda has opened a comprehensive site for the New Standard Commuter NSC110, covering the scooter's concept, styling, engine, packaging, performance and technical specifications. At first this bike looks like Honda Icon 110 which is available in Malaysia with carburetted version. This NSC110 comes with PGM-FI for the European model for better fuel efficiency and lower emission to meet the standard that has become stricter everyday. Fuel efficiency is rated at 50.2km/l which is a good number considering this is a scooter. Scooter are known to consume much more fuel compare to moped which have normal chain and sprocket transmission as opposed to belt-drive system. The capacity of the tank also has been increased to 5.5 liter which can be considered gargantuan for this kind of bike. For comparison, Honda Wave Dash 110 only have 3.7 liter of fuel capacity and Honda Icon 110 only have 3.5 liter of fuel capacity. Large fuel tank are welcomed for this kind of scooter since it can provide longer distance riding with fewer fuel stops. Honda NSC110 retain the sharp styling with aerodynamic package for the overall look and make it look fast, even when standing still. Also can be seen in the sketch drawing is the headlamp visor which is a good addition to provide the sharp and fast look. I'm hoping this NSC110 will be a global model so that we in Malaysia will get the taste of PGM-FI equipped scooter! Original link after the jump

2012 MV Agusta F4 RR Corsacorta Official Details and Photos

[caption id="attachment_4252" align="aligncenter" width="640" caption="2012 MV Agusta F4 RR Corsacorta (Matt Pearl White)"][/caption] The Corsacorta short stroke engine has pushed the power to 200hp up from 180hp of the original F4 version. This F4 RR Corsacorta comes with new colour that is matt pearl white which is in my humble opinion, the perfect colour for this 200hp machine. Read the official release below: RR, the magical acronym that immediately brings to mind the world of competition. The bike for special individuals who demand the most exhilarating riding experience. Created using the most exotic materials, ultra-sophisticated suspension and the new 1000cc short-stroke engine make the MV Agusta F4 RR the most advanced and powerful superbike in the world. When the most sophisticated chassis design is joined with the new MV short stroke engine, the result can only be an extraordinary machine. The MV Agusta F4 RR is the perfect tool for riders who demand the utmost performance. Evolved, exotic, and even further refined, the F4 RR is currently the best that technology can offer to the motorcycling world. To already refined MV Agusta F4, you add even more exotic materials, reduced weight, and, above all, a 201 hp four-cylinder engine  which makes the F4 RR the most powerful superbike ever built. All "packaged" with the advanced design that makes the MV Agusta F4 RR unique and unmistakable. A project for  those who demand the ultimate riding experience. In detail, the highlights of the new MV Agusta F4 RR: 

2009 Kawasaki VN-II: The Big Small Bike

VN-II gives an impression that is much bigger than what it actually is and that is exactly what the designer want us to think when we look at it. The design and stance are carried from its larger siblings that is the Vulcan 750, while it itself is only fitted with 250cc of displacement. That's why I'm calling this bike 'the big small bike'. It looks big, but small in displacement. With the displacement is only at 250cc, we can get good fuel economy with great low-to-mid torque. Also, the maintainance it much lower compared to other big bikes. 2009 Kawasaki VN-II is price at RM25,989 (excluding road tax, insurance and registration) Technical specs, link to original post and three more pictures after the jump

This is actually the first bike that caught my attention while I was at the Modenas carnival at GTMax in Shah Alam. This GT128 a.k.a GT135 in Greece is draped a lot of carbon fibre coversets with black overall colour. The wheel are clever as it uses stainless steel wheel which is different that the stock GT128 which comes in COM* (Comstar) cast alloy wheel.

Modified Modenas CT100

[caption id="attachment_4211" align="aligncenter" width="640" caption="Modified Modenas CT100"][/caption]

Modenas has organized a carnival at GTMax on Sat and Sun last week. I met with many Modenas supporter there from GT128riders.com, CTBikerz.com, GT128-Xtreme and many more.

One of the most special thing about this mod is actually not from the engine, but the seat cover in diamond web fabric.

Modenas has setup this nice CT100 bike in orange with few yellow and black accent. My eyes are attracted the left clutch lever that mean this bike is equipped with manual clutch kit. Some of the coverset are replaced with the one in carbon fibre design which adds nice touch when viewed up close.

1955 Yamaha YA-1: First Motorcycle from Yamaha

[caption id="attachment_4162" align="aligncenter" width="640" caption="1955 Yamaha YA-1"][/caption]

Yamaha started as a precision musical instrument before it started to produce motorcycle. In early 50s, after the World War II, many machines with high precision that has been used for making aircraft like propellers for the Imperial Navy fleet such as the A6M-Zero war plane which is the one used in kamikaze attack at Pearl Harbour.

[caption id="attachment_4161" align="aligncenter" width="640" caption="A6M3 Zero War Plane"][/caption]

The YA-1 is equipped with 2-stroke engine and 125cc of displacement. YA-1 is strongly inspired by the design of German's bike that is DKW RT125. Many bikes actually inspired by the DKW RT125 bikes like the BSA Bantam (Britain), M1A Moskwa (Russia) and WHM SHL125 or Sokol 125 (Poland). It is said that DKW RT125 is the most copied bike.

2010 Kawasaki Z1000

[caption id="attachment_4149" align="aligncenter" width="640" caption="2010 Kawasaki Z1000"][/caption]

The image of Kawasaki Z1000 stills lingers in my mind after the visit to Kawasaki Fun Carnival on 24th April. The actual live view of this bike shows it is much more beautiful than what you see in pictures.

Kawasaki Z1000 is one of the most popular naked superbike other than the Aprilia Tuono 1000R, Ducati Monster, Triumph Street Triple and BMW K1200R. I personally like this Kawasaki Z1000 since it is just pure beauty, pure simple and pure Japanese style. The design looks sharp with nice beast looks from its headlamp.

Since I'm just moped rider, this Kawasaki Z1000 will just something that I can dream of since the price for it is at RM81,100 as I look in mudah.my sales page.

Check out the technical specification below:
