Lighter, Faster, 2019 BMW S 1000 RR

"Our fascinating brief was to take the predecessor model – which has been a dominating force in all disciplines for 10 years – and significantly improve on its performance. This we translated into straightforward targets: one second faster on the track, more than 10 kg lighter and easier to control. These targets were taken as the basis for every decision. The result is a fascinating new motorcycle that exceeds the targets we set ourselves and will once again set the benchmark." Claudio De Martino, Vehicle Technology Team Leader.

The new BMW S 1000 RR – even lighter, faster and easier to control.
The new BMW S 1000 RR sees its world premiere at the EICMA 2018. With a completely newly developed engine and suspension, engine output increased by 6 kW (8 hp) to 152 kW (207 hp) (in the USA: 151 kW (205 hp)) and a weight reduction of 208 kg to 197 kg (193.5 kg with M Package), the supersports bike originally launched in 2009 now goes into its third completely new generation. In addition to enhanced performance, other focus points were to make the new RR at least one second faster than its predecessor, create a more user-friendly design and ensure it offered maximum controllability and ridability. Whether in everyday use, on winding country roads or for high-performance race track riding – the new RR leaves nothing to be desired. In particular because BMW Motorrad has moved the assistance systems such as traction and wheelie control, ABS and Hill Start Control to a whole new level; the same applies to the LED lighting system and large TFT screen.

Newly developed engine with BMW ShiftCam Technology for further enhanced power in the lower and medium engine speed range and increased top-end power.
With its newly developed 4-cylinder in-line engine, now 4 kg lighter than before, the new RR achieves an entirely new level of performance. For this purpose, not only was the geometry of the intake and exhaust ports further optimised, the motorcycle now also comes with BMW ShiftCam Technology – an entirely new technology for BMW motorcycles which varies the valve timings and valve strokes on the intake side. A revised intake passage and a new exhaust system that is 1.3 kg lighter likewise contribute to increased overall performance. Ridability and sprint capability benefit from a substantially increased torque across a wide engine speed range.

Completely new suspension with further developed suspension geometry for even greater ride precision and further improved handling.
On the suspension side, too, the BMW Motorrad developers have left no stone unturned. With the aim of achieving a significant weight reduction, the engine in the new RR now has more of a load-bearing function than was previously the case. The requirement in designing the new main frame, in addition to improving ergonomics, was to have the force applied directly to the engine structure via the shortest possible paths. A significant increase in riding dynamics was achieved in the new RR based on the combination of the new riding geometry, optimised wheel load distribution and a substantial weight optimisation. The new Full Floater Pro kinematics in the rear wheel suspension also contributes significantly to the perceptible increase in suspension performance. All in all, riders of the new RR will benefit from further improved handling, increased traction and even more transparent feedback in all riding states up to the threshold range. In short: the new RR noticeably raises the bar on the suspension side while at the same time offering improved user-friendliness and controllability. The next generation of the electronic suspension DDC is available for the new RR as an optional equipment item. Specially developed for the RR,

Dynamic Damping Control (DDC) requires no compromises in terms of suspension set-up. This is made by possible among other things by new valve and control technology. What is more, a shim package is available for selective adaptation when required for ambitious race track riding.

Four riding modes as standard and three more as part of the "Pro Modes" option for optimum adaptation.
For ideal adaptation to varied conditions of use, the new RR is fitted with the four modes "Rain", "Road", "Dynamic" and "Race" as standard. For those who wish to delve deeper into the world of race tracks and motor racing, the "Pro Modes" option offers an additional three riding modes (Race Pro 1-3) that are freely programmable. These enable individual adaptation of the most diverse control functions such as Dynamic Traction Control DTC, ABS and wheelie detection as well as the throttle curve (torque adjustment) and Engine Brake to suit the rider's own skill level and riding style. Other features that come with the "Pro Modes" option are Launch Control for perfect race starts and the configurable Pit Lane Limiter for exact adherence to speeds in the pit lane. Ultra-fast shifting up and down without the clutch is enabled by HP Shift Assistant Pro, which comes as a standard feature.

New 6-axis sensor cluster for an unprecedented level of control quality. Dynamic Traction Control DTC and DTC Wheelie Function. ABS Pro for increased safety when braking in banking position.
The new RR is fitted with ABS Pro and Dynamic Traction Control DTC as standard. In addition to traction control, DTC also includes the DTC Wheelie Function as standard – available as an ex works option and now individually adjustable for the first time. All control systems have been readjusted for regulation quality and characteristics. While the part integral BMW Motorrad ABS systems already provide a very high degree of performance and safety when braking in a straight line, ABS Pro now takes this a step further to offer increased safety when braking in banking position as well.

Multifunctional instrument panel with 6.5-inch TFT screen for excellent readability and maximum range of information.
The instrument panel of the new RR has also been completely newly developed and is now designed even more consistently for use in supersports racing. In addition to a maximum range of information, the BMW Motorrad developers paid particular attention to ensuring that the 6.5-inch TFT screen provides excellent readability – even in difficult light conditions. The aim was to offer the rider individually tailored screen displays for different uses. The Pure Ride screen shows all the information required for regular road use while the three Core screens are designed for use on the race track, with the rev counter displayed in analog form (Core 1 and 2) or else as a bar chart (Core 3), for example.

Even more dynamic design with optimised ergonomics and attractive colour schemes.
The new layout of the main frame – as a Flex Frame – has made it possible to create a much leaner fuel tank and seating area trim sections for further improved support and knee grip. What is more, optimised contact surfaces and a newly defined ergonomic triangle between the handlebar ends, seat surface and footrests makes for optimum ergonomics. Meanwhile, completely newly developed body features ensure the new RR is instantly recognisable as a new model. This is supported by the dynamic design featuring a colour scheme with two individual characters: Racing Red and Motorsport paint finish.

Kawasaki's Classic Range Grows With The Kawasaki W800 Cafe

When Kawasaki's original W, the W1, appeared in 1966 it was the largest-displacement Japanese model of its time. Not only did it mark Kawasaki’s first step in becoming a manufacturer of large displacement motorcycles, its design goal of becoming the fastest bike in the world was a precursor to Kawasaki's Quest for Speed and led to the birth of legendary machines like the Z1, Ninja, ZZR1100 and Ninja H2/H2R. By today’s performance standards the W1 would not be considered a fast bike, but in its day simply riding a big bike was enough to turn heads and earn the respect of fellow riders and pedestrians alike.

For riders who prefer a leisurely ride at low speed, with the throbbing pulse and throaty roar of an air-cooled Vertical Twin engine playing counterpoint, Kawasaki is proud to present the new model that was designed to capture the look and feel of this iconic bike from yesteryear. The new W800 CAFE is the latest evolution of a brand that spans 50 years. With numerous parts updated compared to the W800 SE, the W800 CAFE the retro models have been thoroughly modernised to deliver rider-friendly machines with easy handling and good stability on the highway.

But not all of the changes are visible - Kawasaki’s dedication to preserving the image of the original model can be seen in the air-cooled Vertical Twin engine that meets strict modern emissions standards, the double-cradle frame with completely revised rigidity care of thicker pipe walls, and the carefully crafted exhaust sound of a Vertical Twin with a 360° crankshaft. For a taste of history, look no further than the W800 CAFE.

Striking Engine Design

Iconic bevel-gear-driven cam and the clean, classic lines of this beautiful air-cooled Vertical Twin make it a key styling element of the W800 CAFE’s design. Long-stroke engine tuned for low-mid range performance delivers plenty of torquey feel-good power. The rich engine pulse reminds riders that they are piloting a Twin engine machine. Fuel injection delivers clean, efficient, hassle-free operation.

Traditional Instrumentation

Traditional instrumentation includes individual speedometer and tachometer with classic display. A multi-function LCD screen incorporates an odometer, trip-meter, and clock. A full range of indicator lamps includes an FI warning lamp, dual turn signal indicators, low fuel level indicator, high beam indicator, neutral indicator, and oil pressure warning lamp.

Large Disc Brakes with ABS

Stronger stopping power comes care of a larger-diameter 320 mm diameter front disc paired with a 270 mm diameter rear disc (previously a drum-type brake). ABS is standard for the 2019 Model W800 CAFE.

Frame with Revised Rigidity

While the double-cradle frame looks unchanged from its predecessor, it is in fact all new. The required rigidity of each and every piece was re-evaluated. Then, while keeping the pipe outer diameters unchanged, the pipe thicknesses were adjusted as necessary. Round tubes with a smooth finish and minimum welds and gussets contribute to the quality appearance.

ALL-NEW 2019 HONDA SUPER CUB

The Super Cub C125 marks the evolution of the legendary Super Cub, which has been sold in over 160 countries and in excess of over 100 million units! Now Honda welcomes a new chapter in the Cubs unique story with the release of the C125, designed for modern life in a busy city, it's timeless design expresses value and universality and offers a new level of performance with a modern engine and updated handling ability.

The very first Super Cub C100 was introduced back in 1958, when Honda was only 10 years old. The Cub was designed by Soichiro Honda and his long-time business partner Takeo Fujisawa with the very straightforward goal: 'to provide the joy of playing a useful part in people's lives.'

Fast-forward to 2017 - nearly 60 years later when the 100 millionth Super Cub rolled off the production line, making it the most popular motor vehicle the world has ever seen. Along the way, the Super Cub's simple attributes of style, reliability, frugality and sheer usability have never gone out of fashion; it has quietly achieved exactly what Soichiro and Takeo wanted - to get people mobile and keep them mobile.

Up until now the latest model - the Super Cub C110 - has been available in Japan, where it's proved popular with business users including the Japanese Post Office and in South East Asia, where it's found a place in people's homes as private transport. Aware of a demographic of urban riders - both younger and more mature - who are looking for retro-inspired machinery with real credibility and head-turning style, Honda is pleased to offer the Super Cub C125 to the Australian market.

The C125 is an evolution of the legendary Super Cub machine and the next chapter in its long history, designed for modern life in a busy city. Its timeless design expresses value and universality and offers a new level of performance with a modern engine and updated handling ability. Just like it was for our founder, the new C125 is designed to put joy and positivity into daily life - and will put a big smile on the face of every Super Cub owner whenever and wherever they ride it.

Simple, robust, reliable, economical is the Super Cub C125 engine in a nutshell. The air-cooled two-valve fuel-injected SOHC 125cc unit has been enhanced cosmetically with a matte metallic-look paint finish and chrome detailing to give it a premium look, and also updated internally to improve the riding experience.

Engine noise is kept to a minimum by the use of helical primary gears and higher precision crank journal bearings. Bearings have been added to the shift drum for a slicker gear change; rubber is employed on the shift arm (also to reduce noise) and optimised clutch damper rubber reduces shift shock.

Bore and stroke are set at 52.4 x 57.9mm, with compression ratio of 9.3:1. The gearbox is a 4 speed unit and - in classic Super Cub tradition - gear changes are operated via an automatic centrifugal clutch, without the need for a clutch lever. This makes it the ultimate user friendly machine, ideal for learner riders or anyone after an easy, carefree ride.

Fun, easy handling has always been another Super Cub strength - it even inspired a Beach Boys song in the 1960s ('My little Honda'). To maintain its reassuring nature, but upgrade it for the 125cc specification, the Super Cub C125 started with the C110 tubular steel 'backbone' frame as a base. The rigidity balance has been tuned around the headstock and engine hangers, to optimise performance for the larger capacity engine while handlebars and seat are now rubber mounted. The footpegs also feature rubber inserts.

Rake and trail are set at 26.5°/71mm with wheelbase of 1245mm. Wet weight is 109kg. Front telescopic forks feature 100mm travel, the twin rear shocks 84mm to soak up bumps (10/19mm more than the C110) while elegant 17-inch cast aluminium wheels add stability and steering precision. Tubeless tyres are fitted, sized 70/90-17 front and 80/90-17 rear. A 220mm front disc brake and single-piston caliper is matched by a 130mm rear drum.

A modern finishing touch is the Honda Smart Key; put it in a pocket and forget about it, the Super Cub C125 is live and good to go. It also controls the immobiliser as an extra theft deterrent, and is equipped with an ‘answer back’ function whereby the indicators will 'blink' at the push of a button to make finding the vehicle easy in busy parking areas. And, with a nod to its forebears (and underlining its Honda history) a historical 3D 'Old Wing' logo crowns the Smart Key fob.
