The accentuated colouring of the sophisticated graphics likewise points to the high standards embodied by the BMW HP4. As a high-performance bike, each BMW HP4 is issued with its own serial number, which is indelibly laser-engraved into the upper fork bridge.

Edisi BM: Review Suzuki Nex 115

SuzukiNex115 'Edisi BM' is our new section that uses Malay language (or Bahasa Melayu hence the short: BM). Here is our first Edisi BM with the review of Suzuki Nex 115 which has appeared in Kapcai Magazine October 2012 bil. 123. I have requested from the editor, Ghani, for the permission to publish this review onto this blog. For international readers, you can use Google Translate to read it. Happy reading or Selamat Membaca! Suzuki Nex 115 - Keringkasan dalam kesempurnaan Ringkas tetapi menghampiri kesempurnaan. Itulah ayat poyo gua bila bercerita mengenai skuter ini. Suzuki Nex merupakan skuter terbaru di pasaran yang pada mulanya gua tengok macam biasa-biasa saja. Tetapi setelah gua tengok iklan di majalah ni (Kapcai), blog di Indonesia dan Thailand, semua orang mengatakan bahawa skuter ini adalah antara yang terbaik dalam kelasnya. Bila gua periksa spesifikasi dan maklumat mengenai Nex ini, gua baru dapat tahu bahawa Nex ini mempunyai kuasa setinggi 6.9kW. Jumlah ini adalah besar berbanding dengan skuter lain malah lebih besar juga dibandingkan dengan moped lain yang mempunyai kapasiti enjin yang sama. Pada suatu masa dulu, gua masih ingat dengan kewujudan skuter yang popular dari Suzuki iaitu VS125 dan VR150 dimana pada masa itu skuter Suzuki cukup menguasai jalanraya kerana tidak ada skuter yang berkuasa setinggi itu di Malaysia. Kalau ada pun cuma Yamaha Pasola 50cc itu. Setelah beberapa dekad, penguasaan Suzuki semakin menurun kerana tiada model naik taraf skuter VS125 dan VR150 dalam jangkamasa yang lama. Kemudian, Suzuki terus cuba meneruskan lagenda skuter dengan pengenalan Skydrive dan Step 125. Namun begitu, pengenalan dua model tersebut akan diungguli oleh model Nex ini kerana gua mengagak bahawa Suzuki Nex ni akan jadi salah satu skuter terbaik Suzuki.

Rossi Leads The Yamahas as Le Mans Begins at Position 3

Valentino Rossi wrapped up the first day of action at the Monster Energy Grand Prix de France as the fastest Yamaha rider and third overall behind rival Dani Pedrosa. The Italian spent the day's two free practice sessions working to set up his YZR-M1 for the Le Mans circuit, focusing on a soft front and hard rear tyre combination. Rossi opted for the 2012 M1 chassis for the Le Mans weekend whilst the team continues to evaluate the difference between the old and new. The final session saw the nine-time World Champion improve to climb from seventh to second, dropping to third at the end just 0.138 seconds from first. Rossi was also the fastest rider through the second sector of the Le Mans circuit. Teammate Jorge Lorenzo was as usual quick from the start of the first session, contesting with the fastest riders and wrapping up the morning in second place. The afternoon saw more of the same fast consistency from the reigning World Champion, taking the session lead with a 1'34.2 second lap with 17mins remaining. A flurry of fast laps in the final minutes dropped him to fourth however he was just 0.166 from first. Lorenzo remained fourth in the combined times. The Spaniard also focused on a hard front, soft rear tyre option but opted for the 2013 chassis to evaluate the Le Mans circuit.

Michelin Pilot Street and Pilot Street Radial - the test ride

Michelin-Pilot-Street-0051 Michelin has provide the media ample time to test the performance of the two new tyre. They compared the Michelin Pilot Street Radial against the stock tyre that is the IRC Roadwinner which is fitted to 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 250R. First, we tested the IRC Roadwinner for 15 minutes and switched to the Michelin Pilot Street Radial. On IRC Roadwinner the bike already feels good and easy to take the straights and corners at the track. Both of the bikes tested are using the recommended tyre pressure as on bike manufacturer suggests. After changing to Michelin Pilot Street Radial, the first thing that we notice that the bike have less vibrations and handle the straight nicely. Cornering is also good and the feedback from the steering is better without the jitter from the bumpy track.

2013 Suzuki Shooter 115Fi in Indonesia - 37% more fuel efficient - Rp. 13,250.00 (RM4,044.44)

suzuki-shooter-5 Suzuki has released fuel-injection bikes with 115cc which should be the first for them to have FI bikes in their lineup.  As we already know, FI bikes are known for their accurate fuel and air measuring that can provide maximum power for minimum loss of unused fuel. With this in mind, Suzuki stated that this Shooter 115Fi are 37% more fuel efficient compared to their same 115cc bike without FI system. 37% is a very large number for a moped in terms of fuel efficiency as we can see the bike can be ride longer with less frequent fuel stops. Also, an example of it is that if the bike can go 200km per fuel tank, now it can go all the way up to 274km roughly but that's only in theory.

Lorenzo Fights to the End in Jerez

Jorge Lorenzo took his third consecutive podium finish of the season today, taking third on the podium for the Gran Premio bwin de España at the Jerez de la Frontera Circuit in Southern Spain. The Yamaha Factory Racing rider made a strong start from pole position, initially dropping to second off the line but retaking the lead lorenzo-jereza couple of corners later from fellow Spaniard Dani Pedrosa. With 22 laps to go tyre life dropped off dramatically and Lorenzo was then re-passed by Pedrosa. The reigning World Champion was able to hold second from an advancing Marc Marquez until the final corner of the final lap when the young Spanish rookie made a heart stopping pass on the inside of Lorenzo, making contact and pushing him wide to steal second. The podium finish delivers Lorenzo 16 Championship points and places him third in the standings, four points behind Marquez.

Yamaha Factory Racing riders Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi arrive in Southern Spain this week for the first European Grand Prix of the 2013 season, the Gran Premio Bwin de España on the 5th May at the Circuito de Velocidad de Jerez de la Frontera. With two rounds gone, reigning world Champion Lorenzo arrives currently tied on points at the top of the Championship standings with fellow Spaniard and premier class rookie Marc Marquez. After a challenging race weekend in Austin with a track not best suited to the capabilities of the YZR-M1, Lorenzo will be keen to begin his weekend in Jerez, the Andalucian track has accorded him and impressive run of victories with two 250cc wins in 2006 and 2007 and a further two premier class victories in 2010 and 2011. Last year saw him take second on the podium, just 0.9 seconds from a third potential premier class win. Lorenzo still holds the Jerez record for the fastest lap and the best pole, both from 2008. The 2013 Championship challenger made his MotoGP debut in the 125cc class at Jerez, although he was forced to miss the first qualifying session because he was too young. The future star turned 15yrs of age before the second session, going out to ride in front of his home crowd for his first Grand Prix experience.
