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.

At 500cc, this is a middleweight bike that should satisfy that need power in a light package. We haven't heard 500cc bike from Honda for a long time and this introduction should makes us happy.

Modified Honda Wave Dash

image This mod is looking familiar but this a better view of it. I'm guessing this mod is from Indonesia with the current modding style there. We can see custom fiber coversets with single seat. 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:

Nice custom work by Preslie Saraza.

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
