EHA Racing will again undertake a two-pronged ‘turquoise assault’ on the British Supersport Championship in 2018 with David Allingham and Ross Twyman. Both riders will remain in the EHA Racing set up for a third consecutive season in the class, with aspirations of championship success – having finished fourth and sixth respectively in last year’s middleweight British series.

Allingham, who recently celebrated his twenty-third birthday, has taken fourth place in the British Supersport class this past two seasons, and with 10 podiums in the same period, the Eglinton based Irish rider, has only one goal on his mind this year.

David Allingham:
“I’m really happy to be going again with EHA Racing, and after two good seasons in the class, we really need to focus on a solid championship campaign in 2018. Last season I was in the running at the sharp end and was a little disappointed to end up fourth overall, but I’ve learned a lot and know what is needed to do the job.

The goal is to get that first win out of the way early on, as I know that will bring the confidence we need to get a run going, and the team has also learned from a few little set-up issues we had last year – which should also see us make good progress. The plan now is to finish off with a good month to six weeks of training; combine that with some testing and arrive at Donington Park ready to challenge at the sharp end at Easter.”

Ross Twyman finished sixth in last season’s British Supersport Championship, and under the guidance of EHA Racing and chief technical director Adrian Gorst, the 22-year-old is looking to be a regular podium contender alongside his flame-haired team-mate.

Ross Twyman:
“I’m looking forward to getting back on track as December and January, we are in limbo mode. With another year’s experience under my belt, it’s time to make my own luck in the class and put that all to good use. With the support of the EHA Racing team I know we can hit the ground running. Last season it took a while to get the new Yamaha where we needed it to be; but we can now use that as a stepping stone and start challenging at the front. I feel I’ve served my apprenticeship now in the class, so I’m looking forward to having a real go this season with EHA Racing.”

Gail Allingham – Team Manager:
“We are very pleased to have David and Ross back onboard our EHA Racing Supersport bikes for the 2018 season. We learned a lot last year developing the new R6 and now feel we have a winning package, that will allow the boys to be fighting for that championship. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the sponsors that have come onboard this year. As always, we couldn’t go racing without them so their help and support is very much appreciated.”

X-tra protection for Honda NC750 from Skidmarx 1Skidmarx’ new Tall and Wide Screen helps make motorway miles much more manageable on board Honda’s NC750X

Significantly taller and wider than the NC’s original screen – it measures 50cm high and is 8cm wider – and with a ‘flip-up’ profile at the top, it helps deflect wind and weather away from the rider’s upper body and head, shielding them from wind and weather.

Like all Skidmarx screens, it is manufactured in the UK from light and durable 3mm cast acrylic, and comes pre-drilled and prepared to fit directly onto the NC’s original mountings – no drilling, cutting or fiddly brackets required.

A quick and cost-effective way to improve the long-distance capability of Honda’s NC750X, the Tall and Wide Screen comes in Clear and Light or Dark Grey tint options, each priced £69.95 (including VAT). It will fit all 2016-18 models of the NC750X.

Matching headlight covers are also available for the NC750X. Fitted using 3M Dual Lock fixing pads that are included in the kit, they are produced in clear acrylic (the only option it is legal to use on the road) for £19.95. Other tints and colours are available on request.

Completing the package, Skidmarx offer a choice of rear huggers in both GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) and ultra light carbon fibre options. Supplied with a tailor made fitting kit, that bolts directly to existing mounting points, the NC750X hugger sells for £89.95 in GRP or £139.95 in carbon fibre.

Suzuki to supply V-Strom 1000 marshal bikes for Welsh Road Race 1Suzuki has agreed to supply a fleet of V-Strom 1000 marshal bikes for use at this year’s Welsh Road Race, which takes place from 3-5 August near the Brecon Beacon National Park.

The versatile adventure bikes will be used by marshals and medics at the event, which sees road racing return to the region after a 55-year hiatus. The three-day meeting will run on the original roads of the Eppynt Motorcycle Road Races, staged between 1948 and 1953.

With the V-Strom 1000 specifically selected for its ease of use and practicality, with carrying capacity for the required equipment of event staff, Suzuki has agreed to provide eight machines for the races this summer.

Phillip Morris (main picture) from the Welsh Road Race organisers, commented, “We are extremely grateful to Suzuki for the generosity and support in agreeing to supply machines for the Welsh Road Race in August. The V-Strom 1000s will be used by the six travelling marshals and two event doctors, and they are the perfect motorcycles for the task.”

Suzuki GB marketing manager, Rob Cooper, added, “We’re delighted to be able to offer our support for the event later this year. We have enjoyed great road racing success as a brand, most recently, of course with Michael Dunlop in last year’s Senior TT on the new GSX-R1000. But we also recognise the important roles marshals and doctors play at these events, and by providing a fleet of V-Strom 1000s, we will be equipping them with the right tools to do their jobs.”

Suzuki’s V-Strom 1000 and V-Strom 1000XT are currently available as part of a new low-rate finance offer, which allows customers to choose between a PCP or hire purchase deal, as well as the term of the agreement and an APR to match. For more information, click here.

Dainese Exhibits At The 2018 Motor Bike Expo 1Dainese Exhibits At The 2018 Motor Bike Expo With A Booth Dedicated To The New Dainese Settantadue Brand

The style of historic garments meets latest-generation technology: the Dainese Group’s new brand presents outerwear from its Speed Leather, Archetypes and Demon Flower lines at the Verona event.

Following the success of 2017, Dainese returns to the Motor Bike Expo and presents Dainese Settantadue, the Group’s new brand. Dainese Settantadue resurrects the history of motorcycle clothing in the glory years and gives it a Contemporary Heritage twist, with garments that combine elegance and technical solutions able to satisfy today’s safety requirements.

Art Director Renato Montagner explains the guideline that led to the birth of the new brand: “The main thread of Settantadue lies in its interpretation of Dainese’s origins and 45 years of experience, always at the forefront of innovation. The traditional processing of the leather, the attention paid to details recreated especially for each piece, the integration of Pro-Armor protectors without distorting shapes or equilibriums: a fusion, rather than a revisiting of past garments. Just as history is not only made up of heroes, style does not only belong to champions. This is why we’ve also taken inspiration from the every-day biker, who finds the bike to be a form of expression and keeps the spirit of this passion alive. For example, models like the Toga and the Chiodo were not linked to prominent figures in the past but have always represented a clearly recognisable image”.

The leather jacket is the star of the first Dainese Settantadue collection, a timeless garment that unites generations of motorcycle lovers. Lines include: Archetypes, Speed Leather and Demon Flower. All created with meticulous attention to detail, they are inspired by key stylistic elements from the past. Archetypes focuses on cult products such as the Chiodo, the classic leather jacket much loved by bikers, rockers and travellers in the 60s and 70s. Speed Leather brings jackets like Toga72 and Rapida72 to the attention of the public, jackets that hark back to the racing suits that Dainese produced at the start of its journey. The Demon Flower line presents Patina72, with its unique lining created for Dainese Settantadue by New York artist Othelo Gervacio and enhanced with a hand-finished treatment of the drum-dyed leather.

From 18 to 21 January, the entire collection will be on show in Hall 4, stand 14I.

The Dainese Settantadue brand narrative continues online with a dedicated website and social profiles that express the genuine passion for this original and authentic lifestyle day after day.

Jonas Folger will not race in 2018 1One week before the start of the first Official MotoGP test this year, Jonas Folger has decided not to race in the 2018 MotoGP season with Monster Yamaha Tech3 team, as he doesn’t feel completely ready, physically and mentally, at the moment. However, to be honest with himself and his Monster Yamaha Tech3 team, he made the hard decision to skip the 2018 racing season in order to finally be able to fully recover with less pressure.

Jonas FOLGER 
“I’m incredibly sad to be saying this, but I will not be racing MotoGP in 2018. I wasn’t able to make the improvements I was hoping for, and at this stage I don’t feel able to ride a MotoGP machine at 100 percent. I’d like to thank everyone involved, but especially the Monster Yamaha Tech3 team, Yamaha Factory Japan, Monster Energy, HJC, IXON, Forma Boots and Rudy Project. I hope to be back one day and want to thank you all for your ongoing support.”

Hervé PONCHARAL
Team manager

“Last night (Tuesday) I received a call from Bob Moore, Jonas Folger’s personal manager. I couldn’t believe what Bob was telling me on the phone, that Jonas Folger has decided not to race the 2018 MotoGP season, because he doesn’t feel 100 percent mentally and physically recovered. It is still very difficult for me to believe, that he’s not going to race with us in 2018, especially because he has been somebody I had lot of faith in and I was sure we would reach top level together this year. I completely respect his decision, although it’s hard to swallow. Yet, I will try to find a solution for a replacement rider, which is a very difficult mission, as all of the fast riders are already contracted. But as always in racing we need to be proactive, inventive and hopefully we can make someone very happy. We will keep all of you informed about the evolution of the situation.”

  • New Bologna-built superbike goes into production
  • About 500 motorcycles already delivered across Europe
  • Panigale V4 soon to become available on other world markets
  • Jorge Lorenzo visits the production line of the new bike
  • A new era begins as the Panigale V4 is delivered to European dealerships 1The wait is over. Production of the Ducati Panigale V4, which began last 15th November, is already running at full capacity. Even before the end of 2017, about 500 motorcycles had already been delivered to European dealerships. Over the coming weeks this stunning superbike will also be available to other markets where Ducati is present.
    Jorge Lorenzo showed a big interest in the new superbike, so after the 2018 Ducati Team presentation he visited the production line with product engineers to get to know all technical aspects of this masterpiece.
    The Panigale V4 is the first production Ducati motorcycle to mount a 4-cylinder engine, derived directly from the MotoGP Desmosedici.. It’s a concentrate of Ducati technology, style and performance. With a power/weight ratio of 1.1 hp/kg, this bike sets a whole new standard in the supersport production bike segment. Developed in close collaboration with Ducati Corse, this road bike is the closest thing possible to its MotoGP counterpart.
    The wait is over, a new era has begun.

    Authentic ‘British custom’ attitude and style

    The new Speedmaster features the iconic character and design DNA of the Bonneville with a sculpted Bonneville tank, machined engine fins, carb-styled twin throttle bodies, a ‘clean line’ header pipe run, finned exhaust clamps and rubber fork gaiters. The signature features of the Bonneville Bobber and elegant hard tail look have also been incorporated, including the minimal bodywork, single clock, classic rear ‘drum brake’ inspired hub, heritage-inspired battery box, and central mudguard ridges.

    A whole host of additional elegant design touches have been considered for an authentic classic custom attitude and laid back riding style, like the classic ‘nacelle’ headlight detailing, swept back beach bars, forward pegs, fixed rear mudguard and 16” wire spoked wheels.

    The Bonneville Speedmaster also has a larger 12-litre fuel tank for increased range and comes with easily interchangeable twin and single seat set ups for added versatility. Constructed in a deep, sculpted foam for maximum rider and passenger comfort, both seats have been finished with a premium contrast piping.

    Three classic colour options are available for the Bonneville Speedmaster, all of which compliment the beautiful real metal finish, polished detailing and elegant badging:

    • Jet Black
    • Cranberry Red and Jet Black
    • Fusion White and Phantom Black with a twin hand painted coach line

    Superior handling, comfort and control

    The Bonneville Speedmaster’s comfortable riding ergonomics deliver Triumph’s signature neutral and intuitive handling with swept back beach bars, forward pegs, and confidence-inspiring high specification brakes:

    • 310mm twin disc front brakes with two twin piston Brembo calipers
    • 255mm single disc rear brake with single piston Nissin caliper

    For unrivalled rider and pillion comfort, the Bonneville Speedmaster is fitted with a deep foam comfort seat and removable pillion seat pad, together with high specification adjustable suspension for the smoothest ride:

    • 41mm cartridge front forks with 90mm travel
    • Hidden monoshock RSU with linkage, 73mm rear wheel travel and stepped preload adjuster

    Completing the authentic hard-tail look is the Speedmaster’s inspired black powder-coated ‘cage’ swinging arm with paddock stand bobbin mounts.

    Thrilling performance and sound

    The new Bonneville Speedmaster takes Triumph’s critically acclaimed 1200cc High Torque parallel-twin engine and adds the even higher torque engine tune of the Bobber. Delivering category-leading peak torque of 106Nm at 4,000rpm – a massive 42% more peak torque than the 2015 Triumph Speedmaster and up to 10% more than the current generation Bonneville T120. Smooth, linear power is delivered low down in the rev range through the slick six-speed gearbox with peak power output at 77PS, 25% up on the 2015 Speedmaster and 10% up on the Bonneville T120.

    Unique to the Bonneville Speedmaster is the distinctive raw exhaust note, evolved from the Bonneville T120 but now an even deeper and richer sound. The bright chromed stainless steel exhaust is twin skinned for a seamless hidden cat box run and finished with unique bright chrome silencers. It also has a twin air box with twin filter design, packaged for optimised volume.

    Class leading capability and technology

    Featuring a 5” full-LED headlight with distinctive daytime running light pattern* and full LED lighting throughout (rear light, indicators and number plate light), the Bonneville Speedmaster has modern capability, durability and style. The new ride-by-wire throttle enables two riding modes (Road and Rain), plus it has the latest generation ABS and switchable traction control. The torque assist clutch, which helps prevent rider fatigue by reducing pull effort at the lever, along with the new single button cruise control, improve rideability and comfort. There is also a feature packed, yet stylishly minimal, single clock with analogue speedometer and LCD display, controlled by easy to reach fingertip controls.

    As with all Triumphs in the Modern Classics range, the new Bonneville Speedmaster is liquid-cooled, reducing emissions and offering a high first major service interval of 10,000 miles (16,000 Km). For added piece of mind, it also features the latest immobiliser with the transponder fitted into the premium Triumph badged key.
