Mad Skills Motocross - interesting motocross racing on Android and iOS

madskills I have been playing this game (Mad Skills Motocross) for a while now and enjoys it very much. It got that great psychics and enables you to experience real danger of broken bones when your bike falls. Most the first stage is easy but getting very much difficult after you passed the level 4. The game is different that other motorcycle games that I've played because this one seems like they really know about bikes, even though the game is simple enough. Try it and you know it.

KTM Race Competition RC200 based on the 200 Duke - RC125 also available

rc200_ktm_2 EICMA is today and there are many bikes to be revealed including this one from KTM, the Race Competition series. We already have heard about the KTM RC390 that has been leaked from KTM Canada, but now there are two more versions coming out, the KTM RC200 and KTM RC125. KTM RC200 is based from the KTM 200 Duke while the KTM RC125 is naturally based from the 125 Duke. If you notice, all these three bikes are actually siblings, since the 125 Duke is the inspiration for 200 Duke and 390 Duke is the more powerful version of the 200 Duke. The acronym RC has been used long time ago since the introduction of the KTM RC8 to refer to its track ability.

Lorenzo Claims Motegi for Yamaha with Stunning Home Victory

lorenzo-motegi
Defending world champion Jorge Lorenzo delivered an incredible performance today to take victory in the Grand Prix of Japan, claiming the Motegi circuit for Yamaha. A dramatic weekend dominated by complicated weather conditions meant the only dry set up time for today's race was this morning in the final warm up session. Lorenzo rose to the occasion, firing off the start line like a bullet in front of Yamaha's home crowd to lead the race into the first laps. The Mallorcan was able to build a gap of nearly two seconds in the first three laps then saw it cut as championship rival Marc Marquez closed in. Marquez and Dani Pedrosa were able to get onto the heels of Lorenzo but unable to pass. The defending champion held on to the line to score his 51st Grand Prix victory, crossing the line just over three seconds clear of Marquez. Teammate Valentino Rossi made a great start to the race from the second row and tucked in behind Lorenzo in second position as the Japanese Grand prix got underway. Unfortunately a lack of braking power on turn 11 of the second lap caused him to run wide, allowing Marquez and Pedrosa past. He then got back on track but suffered the same issue the following lap, dropping down to 11th in the process. In typical Rossi fashion he then put his head down and made several passes as he fought back up the field to finish in sixth position.

Michelin Pilot Power 3 launched in Superbike Performance Day at Sepang - 85% road, 15% for track use

michelin-pilot-power3-001.22 Michelin today has launched an addition to their tyre lineup, the Pilot Power 3. It retains the 2 compound technology as the Pilot Power 2CT, but upgraded with better configuration named 2CT+ (2 Compound Technology Plus) which features a hard compound base layered with soft compound on the shoulder of the tyre. Hard compound on the centre of the tyre enables it to handle the massive power of acceleration and at the same good for braking grip. The soft compound as featured on the shoulder enable the rider to great a good grip while taking a lower lean angle and this will provide a great confident of the rider to tyre so the can ride faster. michelin-pilot-power3-001.54 One of the rider said that this Pilot Power 3 is a good alternative. It gives a good confidence and the handling was nice. Anyway, the ride at the track was too short to even heat up the tyre to its maximum performance. As said in the title, this tyre is targeted for daily commuters that use their superbike 85% on the road, but occasionally getting dirty on the track maybe in the weekends at 15% of the time. So, this Pilot Power 3 can be a great choice. It is even better since Pilot Power 3 have excellent wet braking distance (shortest distance) according to the test by DEKRA, which is a third-party company. michelin-pilot-power3-001.02Riders can feel confident taking the tyre to work in the morning on dry road, and still can go home safely even if it is raining on the evening which makes the road wet and slippery. And if the rider wants to get to track, they also can do it. A good balanced tyre for the occassion, but as the old saying, " good things is not cheap and cheap things is not good". Michelin Pilot Power 3 is a targeted for the premium market, but it will give a better value for money too since it have longer durability as compared to Pilot Power 2CT at 20% more mileage. If you usually use up the tyre at 10,000km, this Pilot Power 3 should give 2,000km for your riding enjoyment. 

Lorenzo Scores 50th Grand Prix Victory in Phillip Island Thriller

1-lorenzo-phillips-island Defending world champion Jorge Lorenzo delivered a stunning ride today to win the Australian Grand Prix in a thrilling spectacle filled with drama. Teammate Valentino Rossi delivered another exciting performance, fighting to take third on the podium. Following concerns over the safety of the Bridgestone tyres to last full race distance the race was changed to incorporate a bike change at the ten-lap mark, with the total laps reduced to 19. The start saw Lorenzo take the hole-shot from his pole position with riders Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa in hot pursuit. The reigning champion gave no quarter but was unable to pull away, the rivals staying within 0.5 of a second as they counted down to the pit stop. This itself turned into a bizarre event with potential consequences for the championship. Pedrosa pitted a lap early, Lorenzo pitted at the ten-lap mark and Marquez pitted a lap too late. As a result Marquez was given a black flag and disqualified and Pedrosa was forced to drop a position after crossing the white line on his pit lane exit. Further disaster was also narrowly avoided when Marquez exited the pits just as Lorenzo passed down the straight at high speed, the two making contact into turn one. Luckily both were able to stay upright and continue. Lorenzo kept the pressure on and held the top spot for the remaining nine laps to claim the race win. Rossi enjoyed yet another intense race long battle with rivals Cal Crutchlow and Alvaro Bautista. The three swapping positions in the fight for the last podium spot throughout the first ten laps and again in the following nine. Rossi completed a super fast pit stop, beating both out to gain two positions. As one of the most successful MotoGP riders of the modern era in Phillip Island it was never going to be easy for them to beat him, and they couldn't. The Italian claimed third at the line to make it another double Yamaha podium.

CBR300R-2014Honda has shown us in China International Two Wheel Motor Show in Chongqing, China, the global model of CBR300R.

Honda Unveils Dakar Rally Model-the New CRF450 RALLY

crf250rally01 TOKYO, Japan, October 8, 2013 - Honda has released official photos of the new CRF450 RALLY designed specifically for rally racing. TEAM HRC (Honda's motorcycle works team for rally races) will use the CRF450 RALLY at the upcoming "2014 Dakar Rally - Argentina, Bolivia, Chile" in January 2014. TEAM HRC returned to the Dakar Rally in January 2013 for the first time in 24 years, with the former CRF450 RALLY based on Honda's commercial CRF450X enduro racing model. The 2013 Dakar Rally generated valuable data in key areas such as engine output, aerodynamic performance, durability and maintenance requirements, which was used as the basis for further design modifications and enhancements. The resulting all-new CRF450 RALLY, as last year, retains the Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI*), the electronic fuel injection system that has shown proven performance in the severe and highly variable environmental conditions of the Dakar Rally. The new CRF450 RALLY will be used by TEAM HRC and will be released to other rally teams as a production rally machine during 2014.

BMW Motorrad presents the BMW R 1200 R “DarkWhite” special model. A dynamic roadster with an exclusive design.

2013-BMW-R1200-zoom-origAs a traditional roadster, the BMW R 1200 R offers an almost ideal synthesis of riding dynamics, agility and classic design within the boxer series with a spirited 81 kW (110 HP). It combines nimble handling with impressive good looks and balanced ergonomics, offering maximum motorcycling pleasure at its purest. In the R 1200 R "DarkWhite" special model, BMW Motorrad highlights its sporty side, something that has always typified BMW roadsters with boxer engines. The special model underlines dynamic aspirations in an exciting contrast between the bodywork with its light white paintwork and the jet black of the drivetrain and wheels. Frame in asphalt grey, swingarm, rear axle housing and triangular wishbone in matt black and black anodised fork tubes lend the roadster an exclusive high-tech feel. The sports windshield reduces the strain on the rider in the area of the helmet and upper body. The standard sports seat provides perfect contact with the motorcycle.

2014 Ducati 1199 Panigale Superleggera

2014-ducati-1199-superleggera-r As if the Ducati 1199 Panigale R wasn't enough, the firm will introduce a 'Superleggera' version before the end of 2013. The Superleggera (meaning superlight in Italian), is an invite-only lightweight version of the already extreme Panigale R.

The Superleggera will be limited to 500 units in total and features the state-of-the-art electronics package derived from the Ducati Corse WSBK setup. It's thought the Superleggera has been developed with the new WSB EVO and Superstock 1000 racing category in mind, giving teams a 'base' bike that comes with a class-leading electronics package and ultra-lightweight components. BMW's HP4 is another example of a heavily-tweaked standard model, produced in limited numbers to give an advantage in 'stock' racing.

It is like a panther looking down its prey ready to pounce. The body extends downwards and the shoulder fairing that shows its muscle.

BOSCH Motorcycle Stability Control - Improved Safety On Two Wheels

748101_240913-1-a-bos Bosch has developed motorcycle stability control (MSC), the first brake control system for motorcycles to ensure the best possible stability in all riding situations. It supports the biker during both braking and accelerating, and while riding straight as well as while cornering. The motorcycle's handling – and thus all the pleasure of riding – remains unchanged. The system will already be available at the end of 2013 with the KTM 1190 Adventure and 1190 Adventure R 2014 models. "Almost one in two fatal motorcycle accidents occurs in a bend," says Gerhard Steiger, president of the Bosch Chassis Systems Control division. "The Bosch MSC motorcycle stability control can help further reduce the number of accidents." In 2010, more than 5,000 motorcyclists died in road accidents in Europe alone. Studies show that ABS on its own can prevent around one-quarter of all motorcycle accidents that lead to injury or death. The new stability control will increase this number even further.
