The popular EX5 has been upgraded with better engine and cosmetics all around it. The engine are now 109.17cc which is larger that the bike it replaces at only 92cc. It retains the carburetor-type fuel system that should keeps the price low and also low maintainance.

2013 SHARK Vision-R GT Carbon Full-face Helmet

shark-vision-r-gt-carbon-001 Specifically designed with touring in mind the Vision – R GT Carbon offers the greatest panoramic aperture available on the market, similar to that of an open-faced helmet. Compared with a standard visor, the Vision – R GT Carbon gives 25% more vertical vision and 10% more horizontal vision. Lightweight, the Vision – R GT Carbon weighs just 1,390 grams due to its Carbon/Aramid fibre construction. For superb comfort there is a removable natural bamboo fibre interior and to ensure the perfect fit, it has inflatable cheek pads. 

Two-strokes still going strong among four-stroke pioneers

YamahaYZ125 The sound changed, the mood changed and for a while it seemed that the sport would make a wholesale change. When four-stroke engines punched their way back into motocross at the turn of the century Yamaha were at the forefront with their innovative YZ400F; an iconic motorcycle that Doug Henry achieved distinction with victory in AMA Supercross but also Andrea Bartolini thanks to 500cc World Championship success in 1999. The writing was apparently on the wall for the two-strokes as manufacturers embraced a new cycle and range of possibilities for engine and performance development. The YZ250F and YZ450F were the fine-tuned results of investment and the growing trend for consumer preference. This wondrous search and thirst for torque quickly fed into a new format of the sport as 125, 250 and 500cc categories – classes that had come to define the shape of motocross across the decades from the 1960s to the end of the century – morphed into MX1 and MX2.

2013 Honda CBR500R is out on mudah.my with RM35,000 price

ScreenShotSSD018 An ads on mudah.my by Welly Subang has shown the 2013 Honda CBR500R with the price of RM35,000. That's price can be considered an interesting price for a bike with 500cc from Honda. The previously launched 2013 Honda CBR600RR is around RM80-95k, which is quite expensive. This is still speculation about the price, but even if the street price of the CBR500R hits around RM39-40k, I would still consider it as interesting. We'll see in the next few month (or year). via: Affifi Radhi FB and Kneepain

Two New Honda bikes launching this July 23rd

ScreenShotSSD016 BoonSiew Honda has teased us some videos about the launch of two new bikes coming this July. One video is about the new AT bikes and there are pictures of the headlight and the tail light shown. Based on my reading and research, it should be Honda Airblade 125. Whether equipped with FI or not, I'm not sure. 

2014 Yamaha YZF-R250 proposed design at Young Machine magazine, Japan

r250_youngmachine1 The shot of this Young Machine of Japan as posted by TMCblog really makes me cry to see it in real life. By the looks of it, the headlight features a narrower 'eye' with double projector light cluster. It might also feature some LED strip for the DRL (daytime running light) at the bottom of the headlight. This is a correct evolution in my opinion about the looks of Yamaha 'R' bikes and this design fits well in the near future. Just hope it will be like this when it is in production.

AGV-pista-GP-Soleluna-2013-001 AGV has shown us this limited edition of this Soleluna 2013 livery based on Pista GP full carbon fiber shell. After this, AGV are planning to introduce the Mugello Turtle helmet in December 2013. Below is the official words from AGV:

The Yamaha Factory Racing team head to Germany this week for the eni Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland at the Sachsenring circuit. Riders Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo carry huge motivation with them following an incredible weekend at the Assen TT two weeks ago where both riders emerged as heroes. Rossi returned to form in spectacular fashion, taking his first GP victory for over two years in a faultless ride whilst teammate Lorenzo delivered a superhuman effort. The reigning World Champion underwent surgery on his collarbone following a free practice injury and then raced to an impressive fifth position just 36hrs later.

The Doctor Delivers 80th Premier Class Win at Assen

lorenzo-n-rossi
The Doctor Delivers 80th Premier Class Win at Assen
Valentino Rossi delivered a faultless performance today to win the Grand Prix of The Netherlands, his 80th Premier class victory and his first win since 2010. Having shown race winning pace all weekend in all conditions 'The Doctor' was faultless in today's TT race. The nine-time World Champion held his fourth position from the grid into the first turn then started looking for a way past Stefan Bradl for third. By the second lap he was past and with just 22 laps to go he moved past Marc Marquez into the first corner for second, beginning the hunt for Dani Pedrosa and victory. It took just one lap more and Rossi was able to dive past Pedrosa into the final chicane for a race lead he would hold to the flag, crossing the line to a sea of yellow flags and a well deserved return to form. The win puts Rossi on 85 points, now just two behind Cal Crutchlow in fourth place. While his teammate rightly deserved the honours for an amazing victory, Jorge Lorenzo also shone today. The World Champion gave everything he had and more, defying the pain from collarbone surgery just 36 hours ago in a heroic effort to race. Lorenzo had started from 12th on the grid but had risen to eighth by turn three. By the second lap he had climbed to fifth and was chasing down satellite Yamaha rider Cal Crutchlow in fourth. With 23 laps to go he had passed Crutchlow and began to close the gap to Marquez in third. As the laps wound down exhaustion set in and with 11 to go Lorenzo was re-passed by Crutchlow. With grim determination he managed to maintain pace for fifth position and rolled into the Yamaha pits to an applauding team. The remarkable feat means Lorenzo holds second in the Championship and is just nine points behind Pedrosa as they head to Sachsenring in two weeks time.
Valentino Rossi 1st / 41'25.202 / 26 Laps
"Today was something special, this is one of the best victories in my career because it is one of the most wanted and expected for such a lot of time. I'm so happy because I won a real race where all my opponents were very strong and very fast, apart from Jorge with his injury. It was great from the beginning, I had a good feeling, I could overtake on braking and I felt good on the bike. It was difficult but the finish line was calling me so I had to arrive as fast as possible. We have made a step with the bike, I can ride in a better way so we have to try and stay with the top guys every weekend. Jorge rode an incredible race, we have to say a special great congratulations because he had great courage to do this and also he made an important step for his Championship."
Jorge Lorenzo 5th / +15.510 / 26 Laps
"It would have been impossible to believe some minutes after my crash that this could happen. We were brave to make the operation the same day, if I had waited to Friday the doctors would not have let me race. We made the race today and I was very brave in the first laps because passing the riders with a collarbone like this under braking was really hard. I felt quite good physically at the beginning of the race but after lap seven every lap was worse; it was more difficult to change direction, to brake and to accelerate so I couldn't do more than fifth position. We only lost two points to Dani who is leading the Championship. This fifth position is better than any victory I have had in my career. I hope to have a good recovery for Germany, I will not be 100% but I hope to be better than here. The victory for Valentino and the third for Crutchlow are good for the Championship, I would have preferred Cal to finish in front of Marc but you can't always have perfection! I am happy for Valentino, more than two years without winning has been hard for him so I'm happy for my box partner. After Aragon I think he made some improvements and here he took profit from the opportunity. Lets see what happens in Sachsenring as last year we had some issues and the Hondas were strong but I think if I can improve my physical condition I can be more competitive than this race."
