2012 Yamaha TTX 115i and Nouvo SX125 Launched in Thailand - Supermoto Scooter

Yamaha Thailand has officially launched the much awaited TTX 115i which have the styling of a supermoto. The design has a lot of edgy lines that adds cyber looks and big headlamp on the front fairing that looks masculine enough. I personally like this TTX 115i very much and willing to plonk money on it if it is arrived in Malaysia. It got fuel injection system named YM-Jet. FI system can adds fuel efficiency to the bike and this mean lower CO2 and waste fuel since the FI system metering is accurately measured to the combustion chamber.

2012 Maju Motor Racing Yamaha Lagenda Cub Prix Race Bike - Leo Vince Exhaust Equipped!

This is one of the nicest livery I have ever seen for a Cub Prix racing bike. This time, Maju Motor Racing has obtained the number 46 for their race plate number. The colour blue and minimalism livery design really gives the bike proper race looks. Many parts of the bikes comes from Racing Boy. We can see the use of the new wide SP522 5-spoke wheel that looks great on it. 

Apple Racing Gasket - No Engine Sealant Needed and Non-Asbestos

The popular gasket for many bike tuners in Malaysia, Apple Gasket (not to be confused with Apple Computer) has been around for many years and has equipped us with lots of gasket size for our tuning needs. One of the gasket made by Apple is this racing 60mm complete gasket set for Yamaha 135LC. Usually the tuners need to custom made the gasket by themselves since there are no replacement gasket for bigger bore engine. Even if it is available, it would be very hard to find but this, Apple Gasket is easily available in many workshop in Malaysia based on my observation. Apple Gasket is made by NP Gasket and it is good to know that they listen to tuner needs.  

2012 AGV Pista GP helmet

[caption id="attachment_9108" align="aligncenter" width="640" caption="AGV Pista GP Helmet"][/caption] Pista in Italy means track. So this AGV Pista GP is a helmet specially made for track rider. Previously, this helmet has been codenamed 'Project 46' with Valentino Rossi involved in the development of the helmet. This new helmet from AGV is extremely good. Here is what Rossi said about it: "I am very happy with the interior shell" "Great aerodynamics, it feels like I am not wearing a helmet" "Excellent ventilation, it is really noticeable" "Exaggerated visibility, like switching from the TV to the cinema". It features lots of improvement from the previous flagship helmet from AGV, that is the GP Tech. The shell for this state-of-the-art helmet is from carbon fiber which provides lightweight construction and high strength properties. The helmet is made in a process called 'reverse engineering', whereby the helmet is designed around the head contours of the rider. In this case, it was Rossi's head. The visor has been improved with +15 degree opening that helps the rider to view the track better when flat out on the tank. All this without compromising the safety. One of the concern of a rider like us is about the price. I think this one will not come cheap, maybe you need to save a lot money in long time before you can buy this. Or you can sell your bike to buy this helmet. AGV PISTA GP TECHNICAL DATA SHEET

Peterhansel jumping on the desert with Yamaha YZF-R1

This stunt is being performed by Stephane Peterhansel which is the winner of Dakar Rally for 6 times. French magazine, L'Integral, has asked Peterhansel to do a special stunt for the magazine special issue. The picture here is being taken at the sandy hills of Merzouga in Morroco. By the way I see it, he must be one of the expert. He can make YZF-R1 fly! via: twowheelsblog

Honda MotoGP History Special Site - Superb Story from Honda Motor Co.

Honda Motor Co. has prepared a superb story of their MotoGP history on a special website. I have read them all and I think it is being written by someone who really knows what is happening in Honda MotoGP involvement. You'll get the chances to see the rare race bike like the RC166, the oval-piston NR500, 2-stroke legend NSR500 rode by Mick Doohan and the legendary 4-stroke RC211V rode by Rossi which can exceed speed of 330kph. Check out the special site 

1966 Honda RC166 250cc 6-cylinder Racing Bike - 18,000RPM Monster

This video has been sent by Azizul Ab Aziz at MM FB fan page earlier. It features a bike that I have never seen before, the 1966 Honda RC166. It make me thinks that technology in the past are far more interesting that what we have now. Today, it is always about cutting cost, maximum profit and environment-friendly (not that I'm against it). Sometimes we need to satisfy our need of power at the dispense of our control like this small bike with monster heart. It sounded like what race bike should sound. Solid and powerful. It revs all the way to 18,000RPM. This is my dream 250cc bike. Check out the video embed after the jump 

Modified Ducati Monster by Rocket Garage, Greece

Rocket Garage from Greece has modified this Ducati Monster with a new look that shows its beautiful engine. The Ducati Monster is already a naked bike, but this mods takes the nakedness into the next level. I like the way the exhaust pipes are lined up on the side with stainless steel colour. The mono swing arm on the rear also adds the menace to this bike stance. Good job Rocket Garage! via Honda Power CRX FB

2012 LCR Honda MotoGP Team - Over 250HP of 1,000cc RC213V Power

2012 should be a great year for Honda race bikes. LCR Honda Team has announced the technical specs of the RC213V that reveals the 1,000cc engine can generate over 250HP of power output! Stefan Bradl will be riding the bike for the LCR Honda MotoGP team this year after moving from Moto2 as champion of 2011. The bike in theory can be said to be powerful than the Ducati GP12 that has been claimed to generate over 230HP. [gallery columns="5"] This might be true since Stefan Bradl is inching away from Hayden and Rossi in Jerez test. Anyway you see it, getting a high power of 250HP from a 1,000HP is something absolutely amazing and technically challenging. It is more challenging because is the engine is NA(normal aspirated) not turbo or supercharged. One of the biker talks about the engine from Honda is about the application of pneumatic valves, but I don't know anything about it yet. Honda, they always has been on the edge of the technical prowess. Check out the official technical specs after the jump 

DKW 1000ccm 2-stroke Car Racing - This is Eargasm!

Long time ago, there is the existence of few cars with 2-stroke engine. As we all know, the benefit of using of the 2-stroke engine is in the lightweight construction and higher output about 40% more powerful than equivalent 4-stroke engine. For example, motocross racing in USA has replaced 250cc 2-stroke bike with equivalently powerful 450cc 4-stroke bike. Engines with 2-stroke system are much easier to maintain as they are fewer parts to look out for, whereby 4-stroke engine need more love and care. This DKW 2-stroke car is an amazing machine to be heard. It sounds very much like the high RPM racing engine car like the Audi R8 race car. You need to view the video to hear the engine in action.

Rimshield is made from moulded plastic, so no worries of scratches anymore. What do you think guys?

Yamaha Thailand today has released a teaser on their website of the unveiling date of the new Yamaha TTX 115i that we have seen earlier posted by TMCblog.

I'm not sure which one is true. I'll be updating more about it as soon as I get the info.

HDT-RMCS KLR Diesel Bike - The Real Diesel-powered Motorcycle

Rok Bagoros presenting his stunt magic to the Malaysian crowd

  'Malaysia you can do it! Were words of Rok Bagoros, KTM stunt rider, when he completed his last performance at 2012 bike expo motorcycle show in Kuala Lumpur.  Indeed, enthusiastic fans did a fantastic job and pulled out last bit of strength from young stuntmen. 'My hands were hurting like hell and body was beaten, but I' just couldn't stop. When I thought: man that's enough I can't do it anymore, people just continued to cheer and with so many people wanting more, you really can't say no!  Si I didn't and all I can say now is that this was my best show ever and for sure I can't wait to do it again. Kuala Lumpur is fantastic city, with great people, food, relax atmosphere. The only thing I couldn't cope with was the damn heat and humidity. It was quite a big change coming from Central Europe, where spring is slowly arriving to full summer temperatures of Kuala Lumpur. It also felt fantastic to jump on my KTM Duke 125 and burned some Sava rubbers after short winter break',  Rok completed his impressions of his first show in 2012. He is now heading to next stage in his stuntriding career, as he will jump on brand new KTM Duke 690 stunt beast that is now in final stages of preparation at KTM headquarters in Mattighofen. Check out the video embed of Rok Bagoros in MotoXpo KL 2012 after the jump

2012 new Yamaha TTXi 115 in Thailand - Streetfighter style Scooter?

TMCblog has reported about this new exciting bike for 2012 from Yamaha called the TTXi 115 in Thailand. The style of this bike very unusual for an automatic bike which features aggressive styling, minimum curve, maximum cyber edges and prominent headlamp. It looks like a Streetfighter bike. I'm not sure whether this is all new bike or the upgrade of the Mio there. Or it might be a modified Mio from Thailand? Anyway, seeing the wrapped up side mirror just might means that this might be new bike for 2012. The article at TMCblog has been set a password, so I can't post many pictures here.

Honda Vario 125i with ACG System - Super Silent Starter

ACG stands for Alternating Current Generator which is the new electric starter system for Honda Vario 125i or the Honda Click 125i in Thailand. I previously have own Honda Icon 110 which is equipped with the conventional sliding gear mechanism starter system that give a brutal sound every time I hit the 'START' button on my bike. The sound sometimes scares my friend who borrowed my bike who thinks that something is wrong with my Icon 110. A silent starter system is something that I really want at that time.

2012 Honda New Wave 110RSX unveiled in Vietnam

As you can see, the red one features the alloy cast wheel where the one in gold features the stainless steel wheel. The headlamp of the bike are now newly designed to feature the double lamp style. The lamp on the fairing reminds me of the bigger bike headlamp that is the CBR600R and CBR1000R. Overall, the New Wave 110RSX is looking good and desirable for all especially for the younger buyer.  IMO, this is a stylish bike from Honda that should come to Malaysia.

Spyshot of the All-New Shinko K3 iTrack for 2012

MM reader, Mr R has just sent in a couple of photos of what looks mysteriously like the new Shinko iTrack in development. He was at QBEE Superbike Centre looking for the new Kawasaki ER6N when he spotted this tyre at the counter. Loyal readers will know that QBEE Superbike Centre is one of the subsidiary companies belonging to The QBEE Motor Group and operate from similar premises in Johor Bahru. He managed to take these two photos before the tyre was taken away by one of the shop assistants. As we can see, this tread pattern is a step-up from the Shinko SR877 featuring aggressive triangles at the edges compared to the circular mini dots previously. For me, it looks fantastic! What say you readers, comments below please!
