Round 14: Aragon MotoGP™ - Lorenzo excels in wet and dry conditions to take victory at Aragon

Jorge-Lorenzo---Movistar-Yamaha-MotoGP---Aragon-MotoGP-race-winnerIn an eventful flag-to-flag race at MotorLand Aragon, Movistar Yamaha MotoGP's Jorge Lorenzo showed superb pace in both wet and dry conditions to take his first victory of the 2014 MotoGP™ season. Starting from the third row of the grid, Lorenzo got an excellent start and was engaged in a three way battle for the race lead with the Repsol Honda's of Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa. In the middle phase of the race, light rain started to fall which then intensified, changing the track conditions from dry to fully wet in a matter of a few laps. Lorenzo made the decision to pit earlier than his closest rivals and swap to his spare bike fitted with wet tyres. He then proceeded to lap at a strong pace in the wet conditions, just as both Marquez and Pedrosa came unstuck in the wet as they persevered on slicks. Lorenzo then streaked away to take victory by 10.295 seconds from NGM Forward Racing's Aleix Espargaro who claimed his first ever MotoGP podium finish after a brilliant ride to second place. In third place was Ducati Team's Cal Crutchlow, who despite a valiant battle with Espargaro for second place, ultimately crossed the finish line just 0.017 seconds behind the Spanish rider to claim the final podium position.

2015 Ninja H2 Vol.3, Vol.4, Vol.5, Vol.6, Vol.7 video - Supercharged Supersport debut this 30th Sept 2014 at Intermot

ScreenShotSSD001I have been missing out about the 2015 Kawasaki Ninja H2 in these few weeks after the second video about the Howling and Chirping. When I comeback to the Ninja H2 website, they have already uploaded 5 more videos about the H2. We can now confirmed that this bike will used a supercharged engine. The body style choosen is the supersport styling to enables it to fully maximise the potential of its supercharged engine. In some blogs and magazines, they have been estimating the top speed of this bike is in excess of 250km/h. I think it can go more than that since Kawasaki has compare this bike to 1971 Ninja H2 that has been a media sensation and the highest top speed recorded at that time. So, if Kawasaki wanted the 2014 Ninja H2 to be as sensational as the 1971 Ninja H2, we can expect the power, the top speed to be phenomenal. Now, can Yamaha, Honda or even BMW brings the sensation back as much as we love what Kawasaki has done? Oh, the video is after the jump, click the playlist on the top left in the video box to watch the Vol.4, Vol.5, Vol.6, Vol.7 video after you watch the Vol.3.

2015 KTM RC200 and RC390 street legal super sports machine launched in Malaysia by Eurotech Wheel Distribution Sdn Bhd - RC200 RM16,888 and RC390 RM27,500 (basic)

RC200-priceEurotech Wheel Distribution Sdn Bhd has unveiled its duo of super sport series named RC200 and RC390 here in Shah Alam, Malaysia. The subject of this bike is to make it more track friendly and appeal to younger rider that are starting to learn to ride track bikes. Personally, I like the double headlight cluster that is enclosed in elongated frame that looks very different that what we always see. This might be the iconic look for KTM super sports bike for years to come as what BMW have done with the squinty headlight of the S1000RR. On the first impression, this bike looks like the one bike from the racer in Moto3 series. The one in Moto3 is 250cc whereby the KTM RC200 are 199.5c and the KTM RC390 is 373.2cc. We can say that the RC series is the mix of the supersports style of the Moto3 racer and the base model from the Duke series. RC200 are able to produce maximum output of 25hp while the RC390 at 44hp.  

Honda NSF100 - pure racer with 100cc - JPY410,00 or RM12,370

Honda-NSF100-004 Only 100cc but this bike made for the track for pure racing enthusiasts. Made with MotoGP in mind, the NSF100 features some of the design cues taken from the racer RC211V. This kind of small is great for a newbie to learn the handling of the bike in the track before going for bigger capacity and more powerful bike. If you can't handle the small capacity bike, probably you can't handle bigger capacity bikes too.

Valentino-Rossi---San-Marino-and-Rimini-MotoGP-race-winnerValentino Rossi had the Italian fans rejoicing at Misano after the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP star won his first race of the season in an intriguing San Marino and Rimini Grand Prix. Starting from the front row, Rossi was engaged in a thrilling three-way battle for the lead in the early stages of the race with teammate Jorge Lorenzo and Repsol Honda's Marc Marquez, with Rossi taking the race lead on the fourth lap. After fending off an attack from Marquez - who crashed at turn four while challenging for first place before re-joining the race – Rossi was able to build a gap over Lorenzo and ultimately crossed the finish line 1.578 seconds ahead of his teammate, with the pair ensuring a 1-2 finish for Yamaha. In third place at Misano was Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa, the Spaniard crossing the finish line another couple of seconds behind the leading pair.

Kawasaki Ninja H2 is coming on 30th September at Intermot - supercharged Kawa?

ScreenShotSSD002 The media and my FB timeline has been flooded with a teaser from Kawasaki with the tag Ninja H2. Ninja H2 has already been made earlier in 1972 configured with 3-cylinder 2-stroke 750cc engine. It produces 74hp at 6,800RPM and 7.9kgm of torque at 6,500RPM. That number is not impressive for today value, but in that era of 70s, it can be said to be the "king of the streets". For comparison, the 2013 Kawasaki ZX-6R 636 4-stroke inline-4 engine can produce 129.3hp at high 13,500RPM. So, to be the "king of the street" again, the Ninja H2 must have a powerful engine but it can't be from another 2-stroke engine. One option they have is to supercharge the engine. Why not turbocharged it? I think, the supercharged engine will have a more linear power delivery and this can eliminate 'power shock' after the rider exit a turn. Compared to turbocharger, the power can shock the rider after the engine hits certain RPM range and when the boost is sufficient. Will Kawasaki us a supercharged engine? Then, what will be the price? Oh, the dilemma and the thoughts...
