2016 BMW G 310 R - the first BMW roadster under 500 cc

image The BMW G 310 R – the first BMW roadster under 500 cc.  One cylinder, low weight, powerful dynamic performance –the BMW G 310 R embodies the pure essence of a BMW roadster: it has neither too little nor too much of anything. Pragmatic in the best sense of the word, it offers precisely what is needed – for dynamic performance and comfort, both in town and out in the country. The BMW G 310 R takes these essential qualities into a capacity segment that is new to BMW Motorrad. As a genuine BMW roadster it masters a range of disciplines: it is just as happy winding its way nimbly and flexibly through the narrow streets of a city as it is travelling supremely and powerfully along country roads. And thanks to its exceptionally low level of fuel consumption and a relaxed, comfortable seating position, it offers the welcome capability of being able to cover a long distance at a time. At home on the roads of the world.  Newly conceived from scratch, the G 310 R represents everything BMW Motorrad stands for: innovation, quality and of course many years of carefree partnership with its owner. Designed specifically for the world market, the BMW G 310 R can run on the most diverse fuel qualities, meets all emission standards and local requirements – and takes the typical BMW premium aspiration to the segment under 500 cc. Dynamic roadster design with echoes of the S 1000 R.  The powerfully expressive design of the BMW G 310 R instantly reveals its agile, dynamic character, making a clear statement within its own segment. It has an unmistakeable visual kinship with athletic family members such as the BMW S 1000 R. The small headlamp mask with striking headlamp, dynamically modelled fuel tank trim elements and characteristic roadster proportions with a striking front section and dynamic rear give the BMW G 310 R a mature presence on the road. Precisely modelled surfaces define the dynamic side view. The compact, dynamic proportions and the short wheelbase promise fast changes of direction, while the high rear conveys a lightness that is suggestive of the bike's sporty genes. In spite of the clearly visible naked bike character of the BMW G 310 R, the side surfaces in body colour create a closed silhouette in athletic style. High-end details such as a standard upside-down fork, quality materials, supplementary fittings and excellent workmanship all reflect the finest within the segment, clearly underscoring the premium aspiration of the BMW G 310 R.

Yamaha Takes Successful First Steps to Superbike Return

Yamaha-WSBKYamaha Motor Europe's return to the FIM Superbike World Championship began in earnest this week with a preliminary two-day test at the Circuito de Jerez, in Spain, introducing riders Alex Lowes and Sylvain Guintoli to the new Pata Yamaha YZF-R1.
Successfully achieving its objectives, the initial test programme focused on familiarising the new riders, team members and management structure with each other, and with their tools for the coming season's championship challenge, the YZF-R1. While the forecast threatened limited track action for the opening day, the poor weather failed to materialise allowing Lowes and Guintoli to complete 121 and 100 laps respectively throughout the two full-days. Tuesday's session began tentatively as the track dried from the previous day's deluge, but both riders were fully up to speed by the afternoon, continuing the hard work and good weather into Wednesday.

Exclusive interview with Giorgio Barbier, Pirelli Moto Racing Director, WSBK Sepang Round

WSBK-Race1-Sepang-001 We had the chance to interview Pirelli Moto Racing Director on 2nd August at WSBK Sepang Round. A little to late but, this is our editor, Eddy (along with Azuan from Roda-Roda), interviewing Giorgio Barbier. Interesting view of Pirelli towards the races in Malaysia condition and climate. How was the race in Malaysia? Giorgio Barbier: Last year was the first year for us (race in Sepang) with the high temperature that we meet. We race with the softest rear, the softest in our range. It was good but we see that it suffer a lot from the first to the last lap of the race where the gap was too high from our view to consider. This year instead, we decide to bring just the new Pirelli SC Zero that could met this kind of circuit which has been improved from the last year tyre. We also brought other two solution, one is now is testing for us to be the new Pirelli SC Zero as we already tested in Europe, US and other track. And the 3rd which is the softest that just created for this track. The condition we met here is different from any other in the world. The temperature is special because of the humidity is something that we didn't met anywhere else. Europe, Spain and Italy or Imola with 60 degrees on the asphalt but today we see 45 degrees.

World Premiere of Honda Light Super Sports Concept

2015-Honda-CBR250RR

Honda is unveiling its Light Super Sports Concept at 44th Tokyo Motor Show 2015. We have very little details of the bike, but still, officially Honda states that:

Light Weight Super Sports Concept: Designed with the key phrase "strong presence," this next-generation super sport concept model and features a look possessing a sense of speed that comes from its long nose and low crouching position. The combination of a plane architecture, which indicates the sense of hardness and solidity, and sharp edges emphasize the aggressive look of this model. Moreover, the exterior featuring matte-black-based low-contrast graphics expresses beauty and the remarkable form. I'm guessing, the Light Super Sports is referring to the 250cc model and this actually follows the rumors of the conception of CBR250RR that are going to be develop with higher performance engine said to be inline-2 250cc engine. If this is available, it means manufacturers are now fighting for the perfomance and NO longer for just fuel economy per se.
