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.

  • 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.

    The Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster 1With the introduction of the new Bonneville generation, and specifically the Bonneville T120 and Bonneville Bobber, the range of choice for riders has never been better.

    The new Bonneville Speedmaster builds on the authentic Triumph classic custom heritage with all of the classic DNA from the Bonneville family and the Bobber’s unique attitude, but now more practical and versatile than ever. The new Speedmaster brings another dimension – a Bonneville with more classic British custom laid back style and an even higher level of specification.

      • A distinctive ‘cage’ swinging arm for an authentic hard-tail look.
    • Responsive Bonneville 1200 HT engine with the Bobber tune for thrilling performance and sound
    • Category leading peak torque of 106Nm at 4,000rpm from the critically acclaimed High Torque engine with Bobber tune, plus peak power output of 77PS at 6,100rpm
    • Distinctive rich and raw exhaust note
    • Featuring a twin air box with twin filters and hidden cat box
    • Class-leading capability and technology
      • Full LED headlight with distinctive daytime running light pattern (market specific)
      • State of the art ride-by-wire offering two riding modes (Road and Rain)
      • Latest generation ABS and switchable traction control
      • Torque assist clutch and single-button cruise control for improved rideability
      • A feature-packed elegant single clock.
    • Designed for customisation with two inspiration kits and over 130 custom accessories
      • ‘Highway’ kit for even more touring capability – includes full soft luggage pannier set
      • ‘Maverick’ kit for a stripped back, mean attitude – includes single seat and raked out bars
      • Accessories for style, detailing, comfort, touring, and premium Vance & Hines exhausts (market specific).

    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.

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.

    Urban commuting is a necessity and a pleasure at the same time. With this very concept in mind, SPIDI Safety Lab engineers and stylists started designing and developing Metropole, an outstanding motorcycle jacket masterfully combining two different worlds: practicality and style.

On the inside, the well known H2Out waterproof and breathable membrane with taped seams provides an excellent protection from rain, snow and wind, while the Thermore® insulating technology makes its debut in the motorcycle commuting world. And it couldn’t be a more impressive debut, as Metropole is really able to face the worst weather conditions with ease.

    With 5 outer pockets and 2 internal waterproof pockets, Metropole is ideal for carrying the most common devices needed downtown, like a smartphones, small tablets, cameras and more, as the removable waterproof hood comes in handy when facing rain while walking down the streets.

    The world leader in damage protection products, R&G, is expanding its range by launching R&G Second Skin stone chip protection film. The all-new film has been specifically designed to protect motorcycles from stone chips and road debris, as well as from scratches resulting from everyday use. 

    Made from a UV-stable, high-quality and ultra-tough polyurethane, R&G Second Skin is a non-yellowing protection film, designed to protect road and track motorcycles. The unique properties of the film mean it is able to disperse impact energy from small stones and other road debris such as salt and tar, leaving the fairing underneath undamaged. The film also helps to protect against fairing stress fractures and scratches from everyday use, meaning the bike remains in perfect showroom condition.

    Simple to install, R&G Second Skin is an extremely conformable film that can fit around even the tight curves of the very latest 2018 machines. Ensuring any rider can fit the Second Skin at home, each kit includes detailed instructions to aid in fitment as well as a fitting solution, squeegee and alcohol wipe. Each ‘standard’ kit contains precision cut film to protect the top of the front mudguard, front fork shields, nose cone, tail unit and leading edges of the fairing.

    Prices start from £55 (incl. VAT) and can be purchased now via R&G’s extensive dealer network.

    R&G UK Sales Manager Alan Garrett added “We know how annoying it is to discover your pride and joy has been damaged by a stone chip, so we’re very excited to be launching R&G Second Skin to help combat damage from road debris and keep machines looking immaculate! The clear film is easy to install and invisible once applied, so will not detract from the motorcycle’s look but will give riders peace of mind knowing their expensive bodywork is protected!”

    For more information on the full range of R&G products and dealer opportunities, please contact Alan Garrett, UK Sales Manager, on 01420 89007 or alan.garrett@rg-racing.comor your R&G Sales Agent.
