Yamaha's WSBK Factory team, Pata Yamaha enjoyed a successful three-day test at the Circuito de Jerez as Alex Lowes and Michael van der Mark were joined by Test Rider Niccolò Canepa to begin the preparations for the 2018 FIM Superbike World Championship season.

The riders tested a number of new parts, working within the revised technical regulations that will affect WorldSBK next year. Between them, they completed 626 laps in three days of perfect weather and collected a huge amount of valuable data for Yamaha's engineers to analyse during the winter break.

Yamaha finished last years WSBK series with 5th in the championship, with Great Britain's Alex Lowes, and thanks to his and Michael van der Mark's 6th overall, Yamaha took away 3rd place in the manufacturer championship. Yamaha will be looking forward to bettering their results in the 2018 season.

Team Suzuki ECSTAR Australia and Josh Waters Return For 2018 ASBK Season

Team Suzuki ECSTAR Australia is excited to announce that it will return to the racetrack with a two-rider line-up for the 2018 Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK) season. Markus Chiodo will join defending champion Josh Waters #1 competing in the premier Superbike class aboard Phil Tainton Racing (PTR) prepared Suzuki GSX-R1000R machinery.

2017 was nothing short of a fairy tale season for the newly-formed team and late editions to the championship. Waters and crew were able to quickly develop the all-new GSX-R into a winner, taking 5 race wins and ultimately securing the premier class title; the third Australian Superbike crown for Waters.

"Last year was unbelievable, to return home and go racing with a completely new team and motorcycle and to be able to win the championship definitely exceeded our expectations" Waters said.

"I'm really looking forward to defending the title on my Team Suzuki ECSTAR Australia GSX-R1000R, it's not going to be easy but we're looking forward to the challenge and hopefully come away being the first rider to win four premier class titles."

Joining Waters will be Supersport sensation Markus Chiodo. After a series of strong performances last year Chiodo was an obvious choice and will bring youth, enthusiasm and exciting new talent to the expanding team.

"I'm really excited to make my Superbike class debut this year with Team Suzuki ECSTAR Australia" Chiodo said.

"It's going to be a steep learning curve for sure, however I have a great team behind me, the current champion as a teammate and the best motorcycle out there, I can't wait to get the season started" concluded Chiodo.

Team Suzuki ECSTAR Australia will take to the track for the pre-season official test at the iconic Phillip Island circuit January 30-31.

Brand of the Month: Arai Helmets

In 2018, TeamMoto plans to give our customers an in-depth look at some of our favourite and most popular brands. Maybe they're brands you haven't considered previously, or maybe they are new brands you're keen to know more about. Let us know on our Facebook page if there are any brands you'd like us to cover!

January 2018: Arai Helmets.

There was a time some 40 years ago when all helmets were similar in their ability to protect the wearer. In retrospective, we have to admit that our product was only average at that time. Mitch Arai, however, became dissatisfied with being just average and wanted Arai to be something more. In 1976, he not only made the decision to “make Arai better”, but set his goal to “be the number one helmet in the world”.

“Number One” can have several interpretations, however; was it most helmets sold, most money made, most racing championships won? The decision was made, and there was a goal set, but there was no plan on how to achieve that goal or even a clear goal. Around that time he saw that the premier helmet in the world had been sold, the original creators gone, and the new offerings from the new company did not seem to improve or advance, yet they were still acknowledged as the best.

So Mitch Arai set his sights on making better helmets. Not helmets to be sold in high quantities, or helmets just to make the most profit, but helmets that offered more protection as he, like his father, was a rider and wanted to protect himself.

Having experience already in building helmets, he knew that shell strength was important in order to resist penetration of sharp objects and to maintain shape in an impact. He knew a strong, round shell would be better able to glance of an object, diverting energy and minimizing how much direct energy the helmet must deal with. This fact is something he recognized from the very beginning and is still true to this day.

Shell strength is directly related to the shell thickness and consistent shell thickness provided the best chance to maintain shape and withstand big glancing blows. He began by trying to devise methods that would produce more consistent shells, specifically consistent shell thickness, which was extremely difficult at that time, and still is to this day when using the bag molding method. However, bag molding increases the ratio of fiber to resin, producing a stronger shell.

Who wears Arai?

Well, for starters, these guys wear Arai:

Oh, and this guy:

 

Aside from Vinales, Pedrosa, Crutchlow, Rea and plenty other MotoGP, Moto2 & 3, and Superbike riders, plently of Off-Road riders trust their heads with Arai Helmets. Names such as Barcia, Bogle, Tickle and plenty more trust Arai on the dirt. 

Yeah, but they get paid to wear Arai...

Good point. So what does a normal rider, who purchased an Arai Helmet think? 

Whitney, part of our marketing team, wears a Arai Vector 2 with a genuine Arai Iridium visor. What does she think about it? I love the Vector 2. It's a great option if you aren't able to fork out near $1,000 for a helmet, but don't want to compromise on comfort and safety. I purchased this helmet when I purchased my first open class motorcycle, and actually had it included in my finance package - which was awesome! It comes in a heap of cool colours and designs, but I opted for Matte Black. I like that the liner is fully removeable, because you can wash it, and easily fit helmet communication systems. I actually wear specs when I ride too, and the Vector 2 fits them in comfortably, and the vision is great. I believe the Vector 2 has now been replaced with the Chaser-X. I can't really fault it, but I will be upgrading to a RX-7V now that I'm a more confident rider. 

So, what's their range like?

 RX-7V

QV-Pro

Defiant

TFT Now Here

BMW Motorrad presents Connectivity optional equipment. Multifunctional instrument cluster with 6.5 inch full-colour TFT display offering a wide range of features. 

Providing fast and clear information for the rider with the least possible distraction from what is happening on the road – this is achieved with the unique operating concept of the new Connectivity option by BMW Motorrad featuring a high-quality 6.5 inch full-colour TFT display.

Fast and safe information with the least possible distraction from the traffic situation. The rider can access motorcycle and connectivity functions quickly with a great level of comfort thanks to the advanced BMW Motorrad multi-controller and the integrated approach. In addition the new TFT display combines the familiar “classic” display of data such as rpm and speed with new technology thereby providing an enormous range of features.

When developing the new TFT display, the BMW Motorrad engineers placed a major focus on designing all the rider interaction activities so as to keep rider distraction to an absolute minimum. BMW Motorrad is setting new standards in this respect as it was possible to find suitable display ideally suited to a large number of specific applications. The interaction activities can be regulated by the well-proven multi-controller.

Using the phone and listening to music in comfort while riding. If the rider for example connects a smartphone and a helmet equipped with BMW Motorrad communication system using the TFT display, he can easily access the media playback and phone functions. These phone and media functions can be used without having to install an app. If a Bluetooth connection has been established with any standard smartphone, the rider can enjoy listening to music while riding. Of course the rider can also jump back and forwards in his music collection. The rider can see all his smartphone contacts in the TFT display and can select and call contacts using the multi-controller. If there is an incoming call while on the road, the rider can quickly take or reject the call with a single tip of the controller.

BMW Motorrad Connected App with practice-oriented arrow navigation and numerous additional functions. The free BMW Motorrad Connected App is a world first for motorcycles offering everyday-suitable and practice-oriented arrow navigation directly via the TFT display. Both the navigation itself and the ability to access the app functions directly on the motorcycle represent a real stand-alone feature. The BMW Motorrad Connected App also offers further features such as recording your ridden routes or displaying ride statistics and information.

GS OFF ROAD TRAINING DATES 2018

BMW Motorrad Australia's GS Off Road Training program has been established for well over a decade and has been conducted by Chris Urquhart and Shane Booth since 2013. In that time the offering for BMW GS riders has grown from around 8 courses per year to over 20.

Chris and Shane have refined the course structure over the past 5 years to ensure riders build confidence and skill from the very beginning of the course they have chosen. There are now six different course styles to choose from, allowing you to work on your off road riding whether you are new to the dirt or an experienced campaigner. Generally the courses are for riders on BMW GS motorcycles only, however there are a small amount of courses released each year that are opened up to riders on all brands of motorcycle.
