APRILIA TUONO V4R REVIEW AND SPECIFICATION

APRILIA TUONO V4R REVIEW AND SPECIFICATION
APRILIA TUONO V4R is on the gas for 2011, giving us several strong possibilities for selection to our list, including the sporty tiddler RS4 125. Parent company Piaggio, like Euro rivals Ducati, Triumph and BMW, continues an unabated stream of new product while Japanese brands are being much more cautious.APRILIA TUONO V4R REVIEW AND SPECIFICATION




In our selection process for this list, we had some votes for two new versions of the ultra-desirable RSV4 sportbike. If you have to wonder why this is exciting then you may not have paid attention to a) Motorcycle.com and/or b) World Superbike racing this year. Veteran road racer Max Biaggi scored 10 race wins on the way to the 2010 World Superbike Championship and the Manufacturer's title at the helm of an RSV4. And earlier this year we picked the RSV4 Factory as the winner of the first part of our 2010 Superbike Shootout.

BMW K1600GT AND GTL SPECIFICATION AND REVIEW

BMW K1600GT AND GTL SPECIFICATION AND REVIEW
BMW inspires us with news of the first inline six-cylinder motorcycle engine in nearly 30 years, this time in the center of a few high-end touring bikes. BMW says the long-stroke 1649cc mill is a huge 129-ft lb torque to produce at its zenith, culminating in a 160-horse bump on the highway of your choice.


The K1600GTL packs big power and comfort and convenience features.

The sporty-ish K16GT substituted 4-cylinder K1300GT and K1600GTL the luxury touring car of the well known German brand. Both are available with a range of technology and luxury options, including electronically adjustable suspension, traction control, heated seats and grips, and multi-mode engine-mapping, including a number of other opportunities which will provide a truly royal ride. And the engine sounds fine when we heard, when we saw K16 showed Jay Leno's garage last month.

"A six-cylinder motorcycle engine is a rare thing, regardless of era, " notes Pete

APRILIA DORSODURO 1200 REVIEW AND SPECIFICATION

This is APRILIA DORSODURO 1200 ,twin-cylinder fans needn’t fret, as the 1197cc Dorsoduro steps in to fill that void.


The Dorsoduro's new V-Twin packs the grunt we wished the 750 had.

APRILIA DORSODURO 1200 REVIEW AND SPECIFICATION
The 750cc Shiver and Dorsoduro are very appealing in their own right, yet performance from their three-quarter-liter V-Twins have been a little underwhelming. But after years of rumors about larger-displacement version of the same engine, Aprilia has finally delivered with the Dorsoduro 1200.


The Max Dorso has already been introduced in Europe, and our correspondent Tor Sagen brought back a glowing review you can read here. Although no lightweight (at a stated 457 lbs dry), the Dorso 12 comes to the party with a claimed 130 crankshaft horses to give it midrange grunt the 750 can’t approach. The big Dorso’s appeal is also expanded with high-end features like traction control and optional ABS.Engine and transmission Switch unitAprilia's profilation of this bike

“The Dorsoduro 1200 is all I ever wanted from the 750 that wasn’t there,” said Sagen after his ride. “The 1200 engine has got all that full richness I always look for in V-Twins. That sorted, the bike is now 100% pure fun.”

Just as intriguing, this new 1200cc V-Twin will surely find its way into other Aprilia models. We anticipate a Shiver 1200 to be unveiled during 2011, and it’s possible the new powerplant may find its way into a pseudo adventure-tourer like Ducati’s weird but successful Multistrada.

2011 YZF-R1 SPECIFICATION

Key Features:
The YZF-R1 garnered the prestigious award as the 2009 Motorcycle of the Year from Motorcyclist Magazine. The YZF-R1 was chosen for its MotoGP®- inspired engine and chassis technology, and for its luxurious fit and finish.

2011 YZF-R1 SPECIFICATION


2011 YZF-R1 SPECIFICATION
Back for 2011, the YZF-R1 is the only production motorcycle with a crossplane crankshaft. Crossplane technology, first pioneered in MotoGP® racing with the M1, puts each piston 90° from the next, with an uneven firing interval of 270°- 180°- 90°- 180°. This uneven order does an amazing thing… it actually lets power build more smoothly. That means smooth roll-on delivery out of the corners, with outstanding tractability, followed by very strong high rpm power. It’s a feeling that’s simply unmatched, like having two engines in one: the low-rpm torquey feel of a twin with the raw, high-rpm power of an inline four. This breakthrough technology on the YZF-R1 represents a paradigm shift in both technology and performance.MSRP* $13,790 (Candy Red/Raven) Available from October 2010

Warranty 1 Year (Limited Factory Warranty)

This R1 keeps all the technological superiorities developed for its predecessor: YCC-TTM (Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle) is MotoGP® inspired fly-by-wire technology used to deliver instant throttle response. YCC-I® is Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake which is a variable intake system that broadens the spread of power. The fuel injection system provides optimum air/fuel mixtures for maximum power and smooth throttle response.Engine:
Crossplane crankshaft technology proven in victory after victory on MotoGP® machines provides a high-tech uneven firing interval. Unlike typical inline-four engine design, where the two outer and two inner pistons move together in pairs with 180° intervals, the crossplane crankshaft has each connecting rod 90° with a unique firing order of 270° – 180° – 90° – 180°. This overcomes the inherent fluctuations in inertial torque during each engine revolution, and the accompanying peaky torque characteristics. Instead, combustion torque continues to build, giving the rider more linear throttle response with awesome power and traction out of the corners.
To maximize rider comfort as well as power output, the engine adopts a coupling-type balancer that rotates in the opposite direction as the crankshaft.
This engine features forged aluminum pistons to take maximum advantage of the power characteristics. Titanium intake valves are lightweight.
Chassis/Suspension:
The frame has a combination of uncompromising rigidity where needed along with carefully achieved flex for the precise rigidity balance this bike needs to give the rider the full benefit of its handling and engine characteristics. It is a sophisticated combination of Controlled-Fill die-cast, stamping, and gravity casting… the exact technology needed for each portion of this advanced frame.
SOQI front forks take a page from the championship-winning design of our MotoGP® weapon, the M1. Since both forks always move together, compression damping duties can be confined to the left fork, while rebound damping is precisely handled by the right fork, reducing oil cavitation.

HONDA REVO TECHNO AT

Since its introduction, the first automatic duck in Indonesia, Honda Revo AT Techno start a new trend combines comfort with typical agility of a motor scooter with a duck.
HONDA REVO TECHNO AT
HONDA REVO TECHNO AT
Because the dense atmosphere usually found in big cities make use of automatic transmission motorcycles become a trend in itself.

In addition, the agility of a motorcycle must also have an attraction. These two things combined is dedicated to Honda through AT Revo Techno.Do not want to wait a long time, detikOto opportunity to test this bike to explore the wilderness of Jakarta without a police escort as well as the usual testing done motor manufacturers.AT Revo technology that carries Automatic Continuous Variable (CV-matic) quite comfortable to drive, though somewhat disturbed with seats that are still hard as the standard Revo.
The path we choose to try out AT Revo is not a special track, but a typical jam-prone path Jakarta.
When the machine is turned on, the kitchen was 110 cc runway rumble. Once the gas, direct motor drive. When I first tried it, there is little sense clumsy. It's nothing, pass the custom motorcycle gear like a duck is no longer found in the Revo AT.

Footstep left the ordinary into the gears on the motor duck in general no longer exists.

Not long after leaving the AFP office in numbers Pejaten, South Jakarta, directly facing congestion.
In situations like this that carried automatic transmission AT Revo proven reliable. Moreover congestion we are forced to apply a stop & go is exhausting. But with automatic transmission, it did not happen.
AT Revo riding in a traffic jam feels very comfortable. Moreover, the agility of a motorcycle duck still exist in the DNA motor that has a wheelbase is 1252 mm.
No doubt, the action-skid salve amid congestion was so much better made than the motor matik like scooter. Ground clerance Revo AT 136 mm high as feels comfortable. Making the foot can tread the earth firmly.

Not only that, AT Revo Honda engine cooling system to adopt dual refrigeration and cooling air to the engine room CVT with engine motor oil the same as duck proved to be effective to maintain the engine temperature.

Any engine so it is not easy to heat that ultimately makes the rider comfortable because it is not too hot at the foot of the machine is located.

When night came and the atmosphere of the street began to sway, trying to spur detiOto motor that is sold at Rp 15.8 million (on the road DKI Jakarta) this.

Here AT Revo engine which has a maximum power of 7.68 PS at 8000 rpm with a torque of 0.81 at 5000 rpm kgf.m speak. Despite carrying the automatic transmission, AT Revo still can go up to 90 km per hour at Jalan Gatot Subroto long.

And most surprising is when it comes to the pump, because if another motor automatic transmission impressed 'thirst' to drink the fuel, which carry the AT Revo EFT technology (Efficient & Low Friction Technology) which serves to minimize friction between the components of the engine instead tend to economize.

MV Agusta F3 The sound and First Image Preview

MV Agusta F3 The sound and First Image Preview,  The F3 debut in society
At Cascina Costa, MV Agusta is celebrating its annual International Meeting. The year 2011 will be remembered by fans of the brand Varese for a welcome and unexpected surprise: the lighting, with its official presentation of F3 on the road, the new three-cylinder 675 cc, which will come on the market in autumn.


Present for the occasion Giovanni Castiglioni (MV Agusta Group CEO) and Giacomo Agostini, 15 times World Champion, and MV icon.
The F3 this was clearly still a prototype version (missing the LED front position and integrated turn signals in the mirrors seen in Milan, also the tail lights were not really working - one led sopratarga it took the place - and some plastic and metal surfaces were not yet final), but nevertheless already emotional.
Emotional, because the bike is very compact (as it was already able to see EICMA 2010), for its technological (traction control, ride by wire, and 4 shaft counter-mappings, one of which is customizable by the pilot as he explained by the Italian test driver), for its unique design and finishes of the various components.
Above all, this bike is emotional because the roar of its three-cylinder, which is really creepy.

The road test
One of the testers and Giacomo Agostini have managed to do some laps on a stretch closed to traffic with the tricilindrico Schiranna. The F3 seems to be extremely agile (the test has performed in several one-wheel and showed that the F3 seems to be at home between the curves).
So, in MV have done to contribute to the expectation that on paper should be a bike capable of throwing new rules in the middle segment of the sport. Also present was the new F4 RR CorsaCorta, the sports world's most powerful (201 hp).
The F3 can run up to 15,000 rpm with an output of 140 hp unofficial.



The gathering MV Agusta
At Cascina Costa passion and history are one. Here indeed lies the historic site, where the brand was founded in 1945 by the will of Count Giovanni Agusta remains in family ownership until 1977.
In little more than three decades of history, the head of the MV Agusta wrote some of the finest pages of the book of motorcycle racing, in which samples as Surtees, Hailwood, Agostini Ubbiali and consecrated in the name of the myth Verghera Mechanics (MV).

2011 New Aprilia RS4 Test Drive

This is new Aprilia 18 years ,after leaving the 2 stroke engine and mounts on his tiny sports a modern 4-stroke 4-valve twin camshaft, electronic ignition. We tried it on track, here's how it goes.

;2011
The test in April RS4 125 4 stroke


After a while the heroic age of the 125 2T, those smoky and smelly, but with a horse worthy of a current 250 (and more ...), cycling scream, with purchase prices and maintenance costs also scream, it's time to lower the pitch, or rather, has long been that the pitch has been lowered. More or less trying to revive the feats of the "golden age of the eighth of a liter" but without exaggeration, especially at competitive prices.
He tried Yamaha YZF R125 with, lately arrived also the KTM Duke 125 and the Honda CBR125R.
Now we check out the Aprilia, which in this sector has been and still is a teacher, with his first four-stroke sports 125.
After selling more than 100,000 RS 2T, since 1993 in thirty different countries, the Noale relaunched a product line to those who are the current market needs. An eye on the wallet, without the look suffers, equipment less rich, but essentially to € 4,390 fc
The design, just to be safe, that reproduces in full the RSV4 SBK, and just to make the idea fairing and tail have the same shape and the same volumes, but as a logical view of the category, different materials.

Great aesthetic, then, and finish the task. In some detail in unpainted plastic (like the tip and the black plastic) that betray attention to costs. Your wallet is possible to fit the small of Aprilia's dedicated accessories. In addition to raised fairing, there are the tail car (which you can see in the photos taken during the dynamic presentation) Alloy screws and adjustable holder.
"The aesthetic refinement is also a special care in terms of motoring"
Instrumentation analocico / digital, which incorporates at least one of the aesthetically RSV4, fairly rich, beautiful sights and excellent readability.
Special regard for the convenience of use, thanks to a tail section where you can safely store a couple of rain and a disc lock or a chain lock, and a perfect living space for the pilots the highest.


The 4-valve direct injection engine with dual mast head
The refined aesthetics is also a special care in terms of racing. The little 125 4 stroke, comes from those mounted on Derbi cousins, but after the changes made by Aprilia, we can consider a new engine in all respects.
Leaving the carburetor, the eighth of a liter received electronic fuel injection, while the distribution of 4-valve is entrusted to a dual overhead cam head. The cooling liquid, and the transmission may rely on a six-speed gearbox. Optional very unusual for Quick Shift, the electronic exchange that allows steps running (uphill not to scale) without the need to turn off the gas and use the clutch. The power of course is that code, 11 kW, from here you can not escape, while consumption and operating costs, we are told, are very low and competitive.

The finest in cycling!
So as not to betray the good name that leads to the tank, the chassis 125 of the RS4, it's really not bad. The chassis is cast aluminum, while the asymmetrical swingarm is more beautiful than those mounted on some six hundred today. The suspensions are not a miracle, but as you will read below, do their duty. Upside-down fork with 41 mm, with no rules, and also non-adjustable rear mono (an effort to equip it with the spring preload adjustment I would have appreciated.) Well-dimensioned brakes, front 300 mm disc with 4-piston radial calipers, 220 mm rear disc with single piston caliper.

Our test
Start the adventure with a RS4 Racing White (other colors available are Black and Racing Replica SBK), with Quick Shift transmission mounted.
Power standard, pistaiola tires, Pirelli Supercorsa SC1, with the rear 130/70 temporarily left for a series of 150, while the front is confirmed 100/80, make it clear to the aspirations of eighth-liter Aprilia. The driving position is particularly racing, with the trunk forward to load the wrists. The platforms are quite high, but not particularly uncomfortable.
Get used to the type of supply, electricity and without any feeling of entry in pairs, small Noale behaves like a great between the curbs of Vairano. The structure, though not adjustable, it fits in perfectly to my driving style, which at my weight (nearly 80 kg). An exchange of impressions with the lightest tester, confirms the good qualities of versatility buoyancy standard.

Yamaha VMax Burner King

The test of the Yamaha Vmax  Burner King
Ignorant, arrogant but also terribly charming, Yamaha Vmax is a really special bike. This is the verdict of our unique test. It has been a few years from market launch (it was 2008), but his lines and especially its V4 are far from being considered outdated.







Carved into the metal, this Yamaha is an orgy of details and precision engineering components manufactured with painstaking care. Like it or not, his lines do not pass completely unnoticed, and where the eye does not come, we think the sound of his terrible V4 to attract attention.

That figures!
1,679 cc, 200 hp at 9,000 rpm with a torque of 17 kgm, many that we could tow a boat (not so small), numbers that impress on a superbike, but who terrorize on a motorcycle cruiser 310 kg Kerb . The transmission of power through a 5-speed gearbox and shaft drive primarily to a very fine-looking.
The V4 65 degree set in a diamond frame made of aluminum, has no filter, 0 traction control, power is kept at bay only by the pilot through the YCC-T Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle, the electronic management of 'accelerator.
The YCC-I (Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake), however, changes the length of the inlet, a long intake passage is more effective at low and medium engine speeds, while a shorter intake passage increases to high performance.
A trio of enormous daisy disc slows down the mass of the Vmax, torque from 320 mm on the front wheel (with six-piston radial calipers) and single well of 298 mm for the rear (opposed piston caliper). To oversee the whole, an ABS system, that protects from bad surprises.
Considering the mass involved, are of particular importance to the suspension. Less than 52 mm fork with oxidized titanium coated stems and compression and rebound adjustments. Monocross rear suspension, hydraulics also adjustable for preload and also (with a handy remote control), may rely on a progressive motion. The wheels are both 18-inch tires and 120/70 and 200/55 respectively fit.



The test drive
With just three seconds, the time to climb the Vmax, to understand that the "game is fun" but the commitment is not required by all. The weight is there and you can hear everything, especially from standstill. The only act to straighten the bike and remove the side stand, requires an effort far above average. Maneuvering the wide handlebar is equally challenging, and until you put in motion and continued efforts are repeated!
A turn of the key (if you can talk key given the unusual cylindrical shape of the same) and the dash remote (as placed on the fake tank) welcomes you, analog instrumentation while the handlebar starts to fuss.
The sound emitted from discharges is thrilling, and a couple of handfuls to allow gases to sense the character of quadricilindrico Yamaha. The driving position is comfortable and welcomes the seat back of the driver in a princely manner, while any passenger is better that he stay home.
I leave the writing and as soon as I get on the road ... and scoured sleeping gas!
Well there is dirt on the ground, I say, the cold rubber ... the astral conjunctions and so on. None of this, with the Vmax if you do not want to lose grip at the rear, we must focus on gas and act as if you were wielding a fresh egg of hen. The departures from the first traffic lights are all of them characterized by conspicuous black stripes left by the 200 back, which not so hot because of the asphalt hard to ground the power. The main problem in these cases is "not to take too much taste," and it's really hard I assure you.

Suzuki Arashi 125 performance

the topic today Suzuki Arashi 125 performance .today we get the following question about Suzuki's arashi performance . I have a 2006 Suzuki Arashi. This motor when the engine reaches the speed 80km/jam no problem but if the gas is pulled through the motor 100km/jam become uncomfortable and performance fall dramatically.
How to restore performance? Do you have to replace pistons and double clutch and a new home?


Regards modification, Suzuki Arashi used for daily usually decrease performance because ausnya some particular part of it's time to be replaced.

Here I predict there are obstacles in the already thin canvas clutch that blew so less than the maximum traction.

My advice try to replace the canvas clutch and manual clutch if it's more convenient to replace disposable Suzuki Satria 120 s following a clutch that can be applied from racing or after-market parts that many on the market, which is much better peformance.
But if you still double clutch better conditions instead use the default.
Whether to replace sehernya or piston to be seen whether the liner already within the limit of tolerance for what has not changed.
The solution used to replace the ring sehernya just did not loose or not berets on  block wall.

So little of my hopefully can help, thanks.
