2012-Kawasaki-Ninja-RR-150-002

Could it be possible that Indonesia is the only country in the world to ever have the production of the facelifted Kawasaki Ninja RR (or also known as the Ninja KRR-ZX150 in Malaysia)? This bike has been introduce to the world in 2012 for the Indonesian market. While they were enjoying their new ride of the facelifted Ninja RR with slimmer body and new styling, we in Malaysia are waiting for it to come here. Then, as of 2014, we heard that the 2-stroke Ninja KRR-ZX150 is going to be replaced with another bike that is equipped with 4-stroke engine. Based on this information, there will be no more hope for us to see this facelift bike to be available in Malaysia.  (more…)

WSBK-ticket

There is no other more official confirmation of the WSBK coming to Sepang, Malaysia than this revelation of WSBK 2014 ticket available for sale that is publicly shown at their website here. Tickets are priced at RM100 for the Main Grandstand North for the early bird and still available right now to buy. This could be one of the most awaited race series that motorcycle fans from Malaysia are waiting for.

WSBK-hillstand

The cheapest tickets available is at RM30 for the C2 Hillstand and that is affordable enough for everyone to start saving now. Based on my comparison to the tickets price, it seems that overall ticket price on every place for WSBK is much cheaper than the tickets for MotoGP. This maybe due to their(SIC) perception about WSBK than is less popular than the MotoGP, but in my humble opinion, I think, there are many more people wanted to see the production bike being pushed to the limit on the track. After the race ended, they can just go back to the shop to check out their favourite production that they like from WSBK race, which they cannot do if it was MotoGP.

MotoGP is interesting too but the bikes are not production bikes, so the races are quite irrelevant to us who wants to look for something that we can buy afterwards. There is a saying,’You win on Sunday, you sell on Monday’. Whether it is WSBK or MotoGP, I’ll heading for both of the races. Maybe F1 too. What about you?

2014 Naza Blade 650R Two Brothers Racing edition – DOHC V-twin EFI – RM24,586 basic

Naza650R-TBR

Naza Bikes has updated the livery of the Blade 650R TBR edition for 2014. The basic price is at RM24,586 which could be one of the lowest priced 650cc superbike on the market. The addition of the Two Brother Racing exhaust system will make the bike sounds nicer and upped the power of the 650R.

The engine is actually based from Suzuki SV650N with DOHC V-twin configuration and equipped with electronic fuel injection. The bike model is based from the Hyosung GT650R which is a bike originate from South Korea.

I have seen many of this bike on the highway in Malaysia and it seems that the riders are enjoying the bike. I wish somebody could lend me the bike to test it.

2014 AGV K-3 SV full-face helmet – built in sun visor – estimated RM1,000

AGV-K-3-SV5

 

AGV has updated their K-3 base model to this 2014 model, the K-3 SV. SV stands for Sun Visor (thanks user rihuhs for telling me this) and as you can see there is the sun visor inside the helmet. Before this, the popular helmet from AGV that have sun visor is the AGV Stealth SV, but that one is not easy to find in Malaysia.

Having the sun visor is a good thing in Malaysia since it can prevent the scorching hot sun blinding you from the road. Based on the JPJ regulation, it is illegal to use a dark or reflective tint visor, so, you can avoid it by using the clear visor on the outside and the darker sun visor on the inside.

I think this K-3 SV is still not available in Malaysia as I checked in mudah. Maybe it will come in few more months and the price of RM1,000 is just the estimation on the current AGV K-3 without the SV is at RM750.

Also check out the official info from AGV after the jump:  (more…)
