Yamaha TTX 115i X-Force Edition in Thailand - Military Green Style Scooter

Yamaha Motors Thailand recently introduced new variant of the offroad style scooter the TTX named X-Force. The one in green is similar to the green that we usually in the army colours on the their clothes and vehicles. This adds more 'serious' offroader style to this scooter. Other than the army green colour, this TTX X-Force also comes with black/grey colour if you don't like the green. TTX X-Force is included with the YMJET FI system which are good in terms of fuel economy and in this case, it can go for 55.75km/l. Even if that number is not met, if you got at least 50km/l, that should be considered fuel saving enough. Compared to a car (Honda Insight 1.3L), real number mileage is only at maximum 20km/l.

2013 KTM Duke 125/200 now with ABS

image KTM has updated the Duke 125 and Duke 200 in EICMA with ABS. This braking assist system will prevent the tyre from locking up in hard braking condition especially in snowy road. How to differentiate the normal Duke with this ABS Duke? Luckily there is a label on the bottom belly pan. But, if current Duke owners wants to upgrade their bike to ABS, just affix the ABS sticker there. Via: KTM Malaysia FB

Rossi testing Yamaha bike for 2013 MotoGP

image Rossi is one of my favourite rider and most of us do. He got a friendly character and good talent in riding too. For 2013 MotoGP, he will be back on Yamaha alongside Lorenzo which is also a good talented rider in MotoGP. Maybe next year we can see 1,2 podium finish for Yamaha. Also, we can expect to see more limited edition bike produced by Yamaha for riders like us. We have seen limited edition 135LC, Nouvo 135 earlier in Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia and hoping to see more next year.

2013 MV Agusta Rivale 800 - the naked rival

image The naked bike category just got one more entry with this 800cc MV Agusta Rivale. The design is a mix from the beautiful F3 and the Brutale 675. It carries the black steel Trellis frame and a 3-end pipes style. Power is rated at 120hp and that is a good balanced power  for a naked bike (but Kawasaki ZX6R 636 is at 131hp). The almost horizontal seat with the high mount makes it a little bit like a motard bike for offroad, but this one is too beautiful to even to be taken to a gravel.

2013 Vespa 946 - 125cc modern retro scooter

It looks classic enough but with a distinction on the 'hover' seat style. I was thunking that this is a 946cc bike when I first know the name but actually it is 125cc 4-stroke engine equipped. Vespa have a good wide followers and it retains one of the icon in the 60s and 70s (80s, perharps) for its different style other than bikes from Japan. This Italy could be the new generation of Vespa that could take over the hearts of the world again, if it comes at the right at this kind of economy right now.

2013 KTM 390 Duke ABS - the bigger brother

KTM also has come out with the new 390 Duke ABS to satisfy the rider who needs more power but at the same wanted the agility of the 200 Duke. It retain the single-cylinder engine and the overall look of the 200 Duke. KTM always have made a aggressive looking bike and a very unique bike that is different than others. Riders riding KTM are usually riders with different mind. 9 more pictures and KTM 390 Duke technical specs are after the jump 

2013 KTM Superduke 1290 R

  The ultimate Duke for the KTM fans out there. This is the biggest capacity ever from KTM and this time it is not single-cylinder style. We can see the use or the V engine but I'm still not sure how many cylinders are there. This bike is unmistakenly KTM with the aggressive looks and orange theme of the overall body. I like the way KTM uses the mono-swing arm for the rear suspension. It reminds me the era of Mick Doohan with is 2-stroke 500cc MotoGP bike. The coloured wheel with white and orange colour adds the unique style of this Superduke. It will be unveiled soon at EICMA, Milan.

On the rear, the wheel are attached to the always beautiful mono swing arm or better known as ProArm swing arm from the Honda NSR150SP. via: X-Dot Design Helmet FB

Modenas Ace 115 Light Blue and White Red - RM4,600 OTR

Modenas has updated the colour and graphics of the beautiful Ace 115 in two new colours; light blue and white base base with red accent. I like the one in the light blue colour since that colour is rare and not many bikes in Malaysia have that kind of colour. We usually see bikes in red, black and white. Very few of them comes in rare colours like this one. This time I can also see the livery design of Modenas bikes are getting better and complements the good looks of the bike.

ENI and Agip Motor Oil

Agip is a well known oil company in the world and especially in Malaysia, but what about ENI? After researching on the net, I just got to know that Agip is actually a subsidiary company under ENI. Basically, this means that Agip and ENI has the same quality since essentially it is 'almost' the same company. We just got all of the above samples to be tested soon. We have already installed the ENI Moto 4T Tec 10W-50 Synthetic which is the top of the line product to one of our bike and the initial review is that it gives easy acceleration towards the top speed. We need to wait a few hundred more miles before we can a write a full review of it. By the way, here is the price list: ENI Moto 4T Tec 10W-50 RM65 ENI Super 4T 10W-40 RM29 (I'll be testing this on my own bike soon) ENI Super 4T 20W-50 RM27 ENI 2T Smokeless RM26.50 Agip TOUR 10W-40 Synthetic RM35 Here is the preview of the bike with the ENI Moto 4T Tec 10W-50 installed:

2013 Yamaha V-ixion Lightning unveiled in Jakarta Motorcycle Show - Digital Pulse Speedometer upgrade

There are interesting bikes that has been launched in JCMS from the two of the biggest names in industry that is Honda and Yamaha. Honda has just released the all new CB150R StreetFire, and Yamaha has strike back with the New Model Change of the V-ixion Lightning.

2013 All new Honda CB150R StreetFire - Trellis frame beautiful machine

Finally, the Trellis frame Honda has come out after about a year of rumors and denial about it in the webspace. It is named Honda CB150R StreetFire and has just recently unveiled in JMCS (Jakarta Motorcycle Show). This trellis frame for a Honda with 150cc engine is quite rare since Honda prefer to use the diamond type chassis (or Deltabox) for its bike. This implemention of diamond type can be look at the NSR150RR and CBR150R bike. This time Honda seems to go further and use a beautiful Trellis frame for its naked CB150R. The web of the Trellis frame of this CB150R is nicely designed and properly sized so that it won't look too big or too thin for the overall stance of the bike. The Trellis frame is well exposed for the riders to appreciate the machine with its compact structure and added strength. The overall design of this bike works well and matched each other perfectly, from the headlamp, side half-fairing, radiator, wheel and the use of Pro-link suspension. BTW, it is also equipped with the fuel-efficient PGM-FI fuel injection system. As you can see above, this CB150R StreetFire features the proven Pro-link suspension setup that should provide better shock absorbing for better handling and corner taking. The design of this Pro-link suspension itself is a really nice view to see when you get near the bike. And with Pro-link suspension, it means that it gets monoshock type rear suspension. It would be much better if it is equipped with the much loved elf-Honda ProArm. The engine case, front sprocket protector and front footrest are looking beautiful in this picture. Everything is perfect and compliments each other. This CB150R StreetFire is definitely one the nicest naked 150cc bike I have ever seen and this time Honda doesn't dissappoint. I'm ready to show the money if this bike ever make it to Malaysia. You might want to ask what is the price and when will it come to Malaysia. The answer for both question is, I don't know. But, I'll keep you updated as soon as I get the info. via: TMCBlog and thank to Pengecat Bintang for sharing the pic on the MM FB page

Zulfahmi on pole position, Hafiz on 27th and all three champion decisive moments

All three races tomorrow is going to be interesting. Interesting because all three champions of Moto3, Moto2 and MotoGP might be decided tomorrow. Jorge Lorenzo will be champion if he wins the Sepang MotoGP and Dani Pedrosa finish no more than 13th. For Moto2, Marc Marquez will be champion if he wins the race and Pol Espagaro is 2nd. For Moto3, even if Sandro Cortese finish 2nd and his closest competitor Luis Salom wins the race, he will still be champion. But, we are looking forward for our own rider, Zulfahmi Khairudin, who starts on pole position on Moto3. We hope all the best for him and hope he can get his podium on his own turf. We also get to see Hafiz Syahrin in action in Moto2, which we hope he can finish at least on position 15th to score a point and able to follow the Moto2 races next year. All the best and see you tomorrow at Sepang!

Facelifted Yamaha Mio 125i (or Ego LC 125 in Malaysia) in Thailand

Yamaha Thailand has released a teaser about the facelifted Mio 125i in the Yamaha racing blue colour. It has been a couple of years of this bike launched in Thailand, this is the right time to have it updated. The headlight is no longer separated into  double cluster, but a big one on the center of the bike like a 'normal' Ego. It is looking fresh. Some are saying that this new Mio features SSS or Side Stand Switch, which works by cutting of the engine power if you got the side stand pulled out. This small feature is a welcomed feature because I sometimes also forgot to pull in the side stand when riding my bike. People in Indonesia too will get this upcoming bike, but as TMCBlog reported, there is only street spyshot without any name on the sticker yet. Check out more pictures after the jump:

Yamaha YZF-R15 V1 in Malaysia at GTMax?

[caption id="attachment_10700" align="aligncenter" width="497"] Yamaha YZF-R15 at GTMax[/caption] GTMax has updated their FB page with this picture of a YZF-R15. Usually they post the lineup of the bike that they are selling. Based on the comment I have read on the page, the price for this bike is said to be at RM14,000. Not sure whether it is true or not. If it is true, then we have more choice for 150cc bike other than its similar naked style the FZ-150i from Yamaha. BTW, this R15 is 6-speed yo. via: https://www.facebook.com/gtmaxmotor

Modenas Dinamik 120cc 2-stroke is back?

This picture if Modenas Dinamik is posted just a few hours ago by Syamsul Azwan Adry Azem on his FB. It got new orange livery which looks quite good. This 6-speed bike has been released long time ago but has been out of sight for many years, but there some rare occurance where I can see them in the Malaysian road. If this bike is coming back in production, it will fight nicely with Yamaha 125ZR. The Modenas Dinamik 120 price is RM5,749 which is cheap considered it is equipped with front and rear brake, 6-speed transmission and monoshock suspension. I don't whether this is true or not, I'm sharing what I know to you all and hope you can share your valuable info too. via: Syamsul Azwan Adry Azem FB at https://www.facebook.com/syamsulazwan.azem

2013 Kawasaki Z800 in Malaysia is CKD but it is not locally assembled (massive photo gallery and tech specs included) - RM47,989 not OTR

  I have been wondering about the CKD status of the newly launched Kawasaki Z800. So, I got to chat with one of my friend who are very close with the Kawasaki people here in Malaysia. The picture below is the screenshot from a chat via Whatsapp. Kawasaki Motors Malaysia is giving the status CKD of this Z800, even it is not made in Malaysia. It is made in Thailand which is valid for SEAsian CKD tax model. Therefore the price is way more affordable at RM47,989. For comparison, a lower cc bike that is the 2013 Kawasaki ZX6 636 is price at RM71k+ since it is CBU from Japan. If you are wondering whether the ZX6 636 is also available in Malaysia, my friend said yes, it is. Massive gallery of the Z800 are included after the jump: 

Scorpion Exhaust for KTM Duke 200

Power will definitely increase and at the same time you can enjoy silent sound if you want to with the application of DB killer. Also, the slip-on is lighter compared to the stock muffler.
