2015 Yamaha Exciter RC 150 Officially Unveiled in Vietnam - 15.4PS 150cc FI King of Street - VND45,450,00 (about RM7,354.90)

2015-Yamaha-Exciter-GP-150-RC-005 Yamaha Vietnam has unwraps the cover of the Exciter RC that comes with 150cc fuel-injection SOHC liquid-cooled engine that is the successor of the Yamaha Exciter 135 (135LC in Malaysia, Jupiter MX in Indonesia or T135 everywhere else). There is also a rumor that Indonesia will get this bike with the name Jupiter MX King. There are a lot of improvement of this Exciter RC 150 compared to the Exciter 135. 2015-Yamaha-Exciter-RC150-Vietnam-002 The first objective of this machine is to 'boost the feeling of power' and with that in mind the 135cc engine has been increased to 150cc in capacity to enables it to harness more power. It is also said that the project leader for this Exciter RC 150 is the same project leader who handles the Vixion (FZ150i) development project. Reducing power loss also taken into consideration here with the proven technology that is the DiASil cylinder use to minimise the friction. Also here to minimise the friction is the use of the roller rocker arm that are now being extensively in many small bikes. Not suprising to us, is the use of FI system to make sure fuel-efficiency and accurate fuel delivery in high speed for more mileage and more power when in need.

Preview by Bridgestone - Round 17: Sepang MotoGP

Round seventeen of the 2014 MotoGP™ season takes place at Sepang International Circuit, a circuit defined by its high ambient temperatures and humidity, and a fast, technical layout.
Measuring approximately 5.5 kilometres in length, Sepang is characterised by two long straights that end in extreme braking zones which demand high levels of stability from the front tyre. The rest of the circuit is a mix of high and low speed corners that combine to generate significant stress on tyres, with this circuit being one of the more demanding in terms of tyre development.
With the severe braking zones being such an integral part of the Sepang Circuit, Bridgestone has developed a new hard compound front slick tyre that riders will get to use in a race setting for the first time this weekend. This new development offers the same excellent braking stability and durability of the previous hard compound front slick, but with better cornering and warm-up performance.

Round 15 Japan: Lorenzo wins the day and Marquez the MotoGP™ championship at Motegi - 1st Lorenzo, 2nd Marquez, 3rd Rossi

1-Jorge-Lorenzo---Movistar-Yamaha-MotoGP---Japanese-MotoGP-race-winnerYamaha MotoGP's Jorge Lorenzo continued his irresistible form in the second half of the 2014 MotoGP season as he won his second consecutive race at Motegi as Repsol Honda's Marc Marquez made it back-to-back MotoGP™ World Championship titles by taking second place in the Japanese Grand Prix. An exciting start to race saw Movistar Yamaha MotoGP's Valentino Rossi get the holeshot to lead into turn one, a position he held for the first four laps before Lorenzo squeezed past his teammate to take the over at the front. As his rivals battled behind him, Lorenzo set a scorching pace at the front of the field, setting a new Motegi race lap record of 1'45.350 on lap eight and going on to take the chequered flag by 1.638 seconds from Marquez, with Rossi rounding out the podium in third place a further second back. 

Round 15 Motegi: Dovizioso destroys Motegi lap record to take pole position in Japan

1-Andrea-Dovizioso---Ducati-Team---Japanese-MotoGP-QP2 Ducati Team's Andrea Dovizioso continued the scintillating pace he showed yesterday at Motegi to smash the existing circuit lap record by four-tenths of a second and claim pole position for tomorrow's Japanese Grand Prix. In an incredibly competitive Qualifying Practice 2 session where the top ten riders set personal best lap times within half a second of each other, Dovizioso put together the perfect lap to set a time of 1'44.502 to finish 0.055 seconds ahead of Movistar Yamaha MotoGP's Valentino Rossi, who qualified in second place. Third quickest in qualifying was Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa, the Repsol Honda rider setting a personal best lap time of 1'44.755. Both Rossi and Pedrosa set their quickest lap using the combination of the soft compound rear and medium compound front slicks, while Dovizioso used the extra-soft rear and medium compound front slicks on his way to pole position. Today's Qualifying Practice 2 was run at a fierce pace with the top eight ranked riders in the session setting personal best lap times under the existing Circuit Best Lap time at Motegi. Warmer conditions were present today at Motegi resulting in higher track temperatures than yesterday, with a peak recording of 40°C in the afternoon Free Practice 4 session. All three rear slick options were utilised today by the riders and although all the compound selections are viable race options, today's feedback indicates that the extra-soft compound rear slick for the Open-class riders, and the soft compound rear slick for the Ducati, Honda and Yamaha riders will be the most popular race tyres. Front tyre choice for almost the entire grid for tomorrow's race will be the medium compound front slick due to its good braking character and consistent performance.
