BMW K 1300 S HP

K 1300 S special model with HP Package has lots to offer even purely visually. What is more, underneath its exterior of brilliant Alpine White non-metallic, mysterious Night Black non-metallic and glowing Lupine Blue metallic is the beat of a powerful heart derived from the basic model, with numerous extra technical features added: high-quality HP Carbon attachment parts for the front wheel cover, an HP footrest system for rider and passenger, an Akrapovic sports silencer and a paddock stand. The bike's refined outer appearance is perfectly supplemented by an exclusive series embossment in brushed aluminium positioned on the intake silencer cover featuring the name of the model and the individual serial number. After all, there are only 750 of the K 1300 S with HP Package. The wide range of additional options makes the machine even more individual. For example, ESA II enables convenient adjustment of the suspension set-up during travel, while Automatic Stability Control (ASC) provides excellent traction and ride stability. If you really want to get moving there is also an optional automatic shift, and for additional warmth heated grips come as an accessory. And there is plenty of passion behind the tinted windshield, too - after all, the special edition is technologically based on the regular 175 bhp model. The perfect package for everyday riding and for longer trips, too.

Yamaha YZF-R1

With an exclusive new colour scheme based on Yamaha's Assen TT-winning MotoGP bike, the WGP 50th Anniversary R1 celebrates Yamaha’s remarkable Grand Prix heritage. Featuring an innovative crossplane-crankshaft with an uneven firing interval, the R1 kicks out high levels of linear torque for superior traction. Using the MotoGP-developed TCS, R1 riders can now adjust the performance characteristics of the 998cc in-line 4-cylinder engine for more exciting cornering on the highway and reduced lap times on the circuit. A compact aluminium Deltabox chassis delivers precision handling – and for optimised high speed performance the latest R1 is equipped with a new front cowl.

Honda Fireblade

Honda's CBR1000RR is the essential superbike... The perfect balance of power and handling designed to work together as one complete package. The CBR900RR set the bar for liter-bike performance when it was introduced 20 years ago, and the new CBR1000RR sets that bar even higher. The CBR1000RR boasts even better handling via a patented Balance-Free Rear Shock, Big Piston Fork and new wheels. Add to that a 999.8cc engine pumping out huge midrange horsepower and torque for class-leading real-world muscle and you have a high-performance package. In addition, new aggressive bodywork aids aerodynamic flow and high-speed handling, and new LCD instrumentation including a lap timer, five-level shift indicator and more, redefine the pure essence of liter-class sportbikes.

Suzuki GSX-R1000

Once again, the best keeps getting better. Introducing the new Suzuki GSX-R1000. Suzuki engineers have thoroughly redesigned the engine, chassis, suspension, and bodywork to create a supersport bike that is more dominant than ever. With refinements ranging from a new titanium 4-2-1 exhaust system to completely redesigned pistons, the engine rewards you with quicker acceleration, crisper throttle response and improved fuel efficiency. The chassis, suspension and braking systems are also refined for enhanced performance and a reduction in weight of over four pounds.

Kawasaki ZX-10R

When passion and technology merge, great literbikes are born — including the Ninja® ZX™-10R. Overhauled just last year, the ZX-10R bristles with the newest technology, including Sport-Kawasaki Traction Control, elevating it above all others in its class. Kawasaki engineers created an engine that produces an astounding amount of horsepower, yet maintains the realibility Kawasaki is known for. All of this technology only enhances the already incredible speed and intense feeling a rider gets while aboard a ZX-10R. The highly advanced and customizable Sport-Kawsaki Traction Control lets riders harness and capitalize on the ZX-10R’s amazing blend of power and responsive handling. The system is called Sport-Kawasaki Traction Control, or S-KTRC. Exclusive to the ZX-10R, it offers a level of performance that raises the ZX above the rest of the open sport bike class.

EBR (Erik Buell Racing) 1190RS

Meet the EBR 1190RS. Our flagship. Our pride and joy. Made with all the engineering and performance traits we admire in a sport motorcycle. It's the culmination of years of learning, victories, setbacks along with an unrelenting passion to build a motorcycle on our own terms. We're happy to share it with the world but honestly... we're just happy we get to ride it and quite frankly, this turned out better than we expected.
We knew from the beginning we could build this bike. But we expected any number of roadblocks to knock us off track. After all, starting a company in this economic climate with no other goal than to produce high performance motorcycles takes either a fair amount of ignorance or a brass set. But things kept falling into place. And today, the reward is 389lbs of meticulously designed sport motorcycle propelled by a powerful 175hp motor. Watch this space...

Moto Guzzi Stelvio NTX

Named after the famous Alpine pass that connects Valtelline Valley to Vinschgau Valley with 84 amazing s-bends between them, Stelvio has launched Moto Guzzi back among the stars of the maxi enduro world. A highly appreciated bike that has now reached a coming of age at a technical-functional level, thanks to the updates and final tweaking undergone by the MY2013.
It all starts with its style, now even more attractive and trendy rounding off the fuel tank by integrating it within the lightweight fairing, which now highlights a clearly smooth streamlined effect which flows into the double front headlight assembly. The latter feature is a distinctive element of the Stelvio design, and the only detail inherited from the previous version. The top fairing, windshield and the half-fairing with integrated turn indicators are all brand new elements that combine to give the front-end of the Stelvio MY2013 a cutting-edge, more aggressive and dynamic look. It has an original design, but it is above all more functional and versatile, features that are of uppermost importance on models of this type. From an objective standpoint, the style of the new surfaces emphasises two fundamental project milestones compared to the previous version: more efficient aerodynamic protection, thanks to the new top fairing and practically twice fold range capacity thanks to the outstanding new fuel tank with a 32 litre record capacity.

Horex Motorcycles

The announcement earlier this week that the Horex brand has been resurrected in Germany, and has already designed a new model, carries with it some significance beyond that normally associated with the launch of any new marque. This is a premium product with high end engineering, and lots of money behind it. Although surely in the works for several years (beginning prior to the current economic woes impacting the motorcycle industry), there is an air of confidence about this company and its first bike, a six-cylinder, supercharged machine with top drawer components expected to be priced north of R200,000 when it is launched in 2011.

By all appearances, Horex is not only well funded, but in place with powerful investors and sponsors prepared to launch production on schedule. Even in better economic times, premium brands have frequently attempted to launch with great fanfare… only to slip away into oblivion before any real product rolls off the assembly line.

Horex will use the VR6 (yes, similar to Volkswagen’s engine layout) to power a number of different models in addition to the first, standard version pictured.

The VR6 is also “modular” such that two cylinders could be lopped off to create an 800cc VR4. The VR cylinder arrangement is new to the motorcycle industry, but it certainly makes a lot of sense. The very narrow angle can keep vibration levels low (close to that of a straight six) yet the engine is nearly as compact as an inline four. According to Horex, computer simulations indicate the 1200cc engine, with its compact supercharger, can easily make 175 to 200 horsepower at safe piston speeds.

While the engine is the biggest curiosity, the single-sided swingarm coupled with belt drive is also of interest.  The front fork is a large 50mm unit.

Horex should achieve its goal of seamless, smooth, big power and torque at virtually all rpm levels.  The engine layout and displacement, coupled with the supercharger makes this achievable and it should make for an interesting and enjoyable rider experience.

The design of the initial prototype is either boring or sophisticated, depending on your perspective.  Peter Naumann, a professor of design at the University of Munich, is responsible.  He states that, although the spirit of older Horex designs is in the new bike, it is intended to show a modern direction as well. Horex says it reflects “a confident, modern style with clean lines, quality materials and carefully crafted brand details.”

SUZUKI'S BATTERY-POWERED CROSSCAGE

Suzuki's concept bike the Crosscage. One look at the fuel-cell-powered design and you understand where it got its name.

The Crosscage features a fuel-cell unit from Intelligent Energy, a British firm, as well as a lithium-ion battery.

Not much else is revealed by Suzuki, except that the Crosscage is air-cooled and the light-weight technologies employed by the design

"not only make the Crosscage environment-friendly; they also helped enable sporty styling befitting the Suzuki name."

SUZUKI SIX-CYLINDER STRATOSPHERE

Six cylinder motorcycles have been few and far between in the history of powered two-wheelers:

Benelli’s Sei, Honda’s CBX and Goldwing, Kawasaki’s Z1300 and now Suzuki’s Stratosphere.

The Suzuki Stratosphere is only a concept bike at this stage but vapourware is not in Suzuki’s vocabulary

and the company has a strong track record for turning its concepts into reality.

The raw figures are 1100cc, 24 valves, 180 horses and a motor reportedly turbine-like smooth.

The motor is an engineering masterpiece akin to the miniaturized sophistication of a Swiss watch

and the aluminium fairing, electrically-adjustable windscreen, LED headlights, adjustable handlebars,

built-in GPS navigation just add to the high-tech cred. We’re not so sure about the orange seat, but love the Katanesque profile.

a stunner and one that we sincerely hope will make it to the showroom floor. More details as they come to hand.

ENV

 

Hydrogen-powered motorcycle.

 

The prototype fuel-cell bike emits only water vapour. Intelligent Energy hope to have models for sale by late 2006.


The ENV (Emissions Neutral Vehicle) bike was designed to Intelligent Energy’s brief by a British team. The ENV bike is fully-functioning and has been engineered and purpose-built (based around Intelligent Energy’s world-beating Core fuel cell) from the ground up, demonstrating the real, everyday applicability of fuel cell technology. The Core, which is completely detachable from the bike, is a radically compact and efficient fuel cell, capable of powering anything from a motorboat to a small domestic motor.

ENV is lightweight, streamlined and aerodynamic. It boasts a performance that outreaches any existing electrical bike. In an urban or off-road environment, it can reach speeds of 50mph/80kph.
It is also virtually silent (with noise equivalent to an everyday home computer) and its emissions are almost completely clean.
On a full tank, the ENV
bike could be used continually for up to four hours without any need for re-fuelling. The bike can also be used by riders of any skill level with simple controls, via a throttle directly linked to the applied power. The bike has no gears and is strictly defined as a motorbike, although it feels to riders more like a very quick and responsive mountain bike. ENV is light, fast and fun, it has good ground clearance, great off-road suspension travel and a very carefully considered power to weight ratio.
The bike's primary frame and swing-arm are made from hollow-cast aircraft grade aluminium.
At its heart is a fully-integrated 1kW fuel cell generator providing power on demand directly to the drive-train.
To enhance performance during acceleration, the fuel cell is hybridised with a battery pack to provide a 6kW peak load to the motor.
The result is a balanced hybrid concept which combines the main advantages of Intelligent Energy’s Core fuel cell, hydrogen storage and battery technology.  This is the way guys... so look closely, you have been warned!
