Bridgestone MotoGP™ Preview - Round 4: Spain, Jerez

1-Race-action-from-the-2015-MotoGP-season
Bridgestone slick compounds available: Front: Soft, Medium & Hard; Rear: Soft, Medium & Hard (Asymmetric)
Bridgestone wet tyre compounds available: Hard (Main), Soft (Alternative – front), Extra-hard (Alternative – rear)
MotoGP™ returns to its spiritual homeland of Europe as round four of the world championship takes place at Spain's iconic Jerez circuit.
The flowing, 4.423 kilometre-long Jerez circuit provides some great overtaking opportunities that have set the scene for many memorable championship battles over the years.
Comprising eight right-hand and five left-hand corners, overall Jerez is one of the less severe circuits on tyres, however a special approach to tyre development is still required at this track. For this circuit, Bridgestone provides asymmetric rear slicks with slightly softer rubber on the left shoulder to offer better grip and warm-up performance e in the slower corners, while the harder right shoulders provide greater stability in the faster right-hand corners. Rear slick options for the Factory Honda and Yamaha riders are the medium and hard asymmetric rear slicks, while the open class and factory concessions riders can use the soft and medium asymmetric rear slicks. With a wide range of track conditions possible at the Jerez, the front tyre allocation for the Spanish Grand Prix is the soft, medium & hard compound front slicks.
The Jerez circuit is extremely abrasive when wet, so the hard compound option is the main wet tyre this weekend, with the soft compound being the alternative wet option for the front tyre and the extra-hard compound for the rear.

2014 KTM RC390 Review - lightweight and track-ready -RM27,500

KTM_RC_390_MM_009 Supersports is one of the popular bike category for so long. The category exudes speed and performance. This has been to the factor that supersports styling is the style used in professional racing namely in MotoGP and WSBK. The particular supersports from KTM, the RC390, embodies the statement of speed and performance really well. It got all the packages to be a great supersports bike. Great chassis, great engine, high performance and of course great design. KTM_RC_390_MM_012 Looks KTM RC390 is an interesting bike in terms of design. When I see the concept first by KTM, it looks very sharp and carry the silhoutte of the KTM RC250GP which is being used in Moto3 racing series. What's even better is that, the concept has been taken into the production with minimal changes in the overall design. It is still sharp, and most important, it is different than the rest of the supersports in its category. The iconic double front headlamp with double J LED fairing light is distinguishable from far to be a KTM. The rear lights also very interesting with a strong presence of the red light bar. This has to be one of my favourite rear light design so far. It looks different, creative and feels like it is designed by someone who knows bikes and love it very much.

2015 KTM RC250 and Duke 250 now available on official KTM website

2015-KTM-RC250-001 I have heard the news about the KTM RC250 and Duke 250 on the 1st April, and choose not to care about it since it might be April fools. After doing research and referring to many sites, this is the REAL thing! One way to make sure that this is the REAL thing, KTM has released official studio images and information about the bike in its official website. The presence of the KTM RC250 and Duke 250 is an interesting move since there has been a great competition in the category and KTM offering the 200cc bike seems a little bit strange. But, most the rider knows that KTM does not follow normal convention and they always do thing differently. This time they heard that you want the 250cc bike and now, it is.

Yamaha recalls MT09, Super Tenere and R6

yamaha-mt-09

Apparently there is a recall on a few Yamaha MT-09s, Super Teneres and YZF-R6s. This is because there is a fault with the transmission system which leaves riders unable to select gears.

The recall is happening in the UK and according to Britain's Vehicle and Operator Services Agency, the 'transmission may fail' as a result of a fatigue crack to an internal component.

A notice on VOSA's recall database says: 'The gear shift cam segment stopper may develop a fatigue crack. If not identified, this could result in the inability of the rider to select gears.'

2014 KTM RC200 vs KTM RC250 vs Duke 250 Specs Comparison

rc250-rc200-duke250-tech-specs How much difference is the KTM RC200 vs RC250? KTM website actually enables you to compare the specs of the bike you choose. In this case, I have check out the RC200 vs RC250 and added the Duke 250 just to see what else is different. One of the most important thing that we want to see is how much the power differs and what is the bore x stroke comparison of the RC200 and RC250. We can see that the KTM RC200 produces 25hp, while the RC250 comes with bigger output as expected at 31hp. That is 6hp increase which can provides better room for acceleration and enjoyment. The RC200 top speed is at 135km/h (as told by my RC200 rider friend), so, we can expect the RC250 to be topped at 150km/h maybe?

2015 Yamaha YZF-R25 in Malaysia is RM19,783?

yzf-r25-price-malaysia-harga Kapar Motors has updated in their FB page about the price of the Yamaha YZF-R25 in Malaysia at RM19,783. YZF-R25 comes with 2-cylinder parallel twin engine that produces 35.5PS which is a respected output from a 250cc bike. Let us do some calculation here: 1. Let say that is the basic price = RM19,783 (rumors said that this price already include GST) 2. Add road tax, insurance and registration = RM3,500 (estimation) Total = RM23,283 OTR (this is estimation saja bos). For this price, will this be an interesting bike to own? I think, it absolutely is.
