Motorcycle Movie History / Triumph


In a discussion of classic motorcycle movie moments one bike kept reappearing with disproportionate frequency. Your guess, Harley Davidson, right? Well it was our guess as well, but we are all wrong. It’s Triumph, and by a large margin. This is just a part of a list that we found:

The English Patient (Bonneville – Ralph Fiennes)
Harry Potter & the Sorcerer’s Stone (Bonneville – Robbie Coltrane)
The Matrix (Speed Triple – Carrie Ann Moss)

The full list is awaiting you after the jump. Continue reading →

Luca Bar / Moto Guzzi V7 Clubman Endurance Racer


For one of his latest creations Luca Bar of  Luca Bar Designs choose Moto Guzzi V7 Clubman Racer, debuted at EICMA in 2009. Although this version of Moto Guzzi is beautiful enough in factory form, that didn’t stop this talented designer to fiddle around with small details – trying to achieve a certain level of personal satisfaction. Basing his design off the 1970s endurance race bikes, Luca constructed a streamlined front fairing for this Guzzi. Although a subtle change, it somehow transforms the whole bike, giving it a special look and feel. A nice touch, something worth considering by the Italian factory. Continue reading →

Agility Saietta Electric Motorcycle Revealed / Video


Meet the Agility Saietta, the new motorcycle entering the electric bike market. Other than it’s unconventional looks, this bike (designed in London) is not bringing anything extraordinary to the plate. You would be able to chose from two options of Saietta: the 50 miles range Saietta S, and a 100 miles range Saietta R. Despite it’s labeling, the models “S” will be the one quicker to 60 mph, as the “R” model will need to howl an extra battery pack, adding to it’s overall weight. One more thing that is added to R model is higher price (logically). The S models will be priced at £9,975, while R will have a £13,975 price tag (roughly $16,200 and $22,650). Performance wise, there are some rumors that it will have 675HP per ton, quite peppy :) Continue reading →

The San Carlo Honda Gresini rider finished Thursday at the Sepang Test with the fastest time of the entire three days. Casey Stoner and Jorge Lorenzo were second and third fastest respectively, with Valentino Rossi tenth.

The first on-track MotoGP action of the year concluded at Sepang on Thursday, and in an exciting opening chapter of the pre-season period it was Marco Simoncelli who topped the third and final day’s timesheet in Malaysia. The San Carlo Honda Gresini rider posted a 2’00.757 on his second of 42 laps, an effort that registered the best time of the entire Test and which was just 0.239s off Valentino Rossi’s 2009 circuit best lap.

2011 Kawasaki ZRX1200 / Golden Brown


Mind you, Kawasaki ZRX1200, was missing from the European listing for the last year. The fact is that MY 2010 was deeply revised, but that didn’t seem to matter in the old continent. Bike like this is belonging to a very narrow niche market consisting of Superbike enthusiasts and fans of Jap bikes made in 70s and 80s. Meanwhile, this incredible piece of engineering continued to evolve, and 2011 brought two new colors: Dark green with light green stripe and brown with caramel brown stripe. Continue reading →

Racing and Life Philosophy / AFM 2010


A very nicely done movie by the guys from 4theriders.com. It is s non-profit film put together for the awards banquet for the 2010 AFM racing season. We, personally, think that there is a lot to compare between the real life and racing, and if you listen to the speech in the video, you can notice those parallels as well. Enjoy! Continue reading →
