Gallery: Pictures of 2014 Kawasaki 250SL and Z250SL at WSBK Sepang – 250SL RM17,689

Kawasaki-250SL-Z250SL-001.19

I’m sharing you these set of pictures of the 2014 Kawasaki 250SL and the recently launched the Z250SL. As you can see from the picture above, the yellow 250SL is signed by Tom Sykes and thus making it rare and I think should only be for display at Kawasaki’s office. This indeed a very interesting bike as I have asked many media friends who are really liked the bike. It is slim since it is single-cylinder, but still got enough power to get it to 157km/h . Kawasaki 250SL are rated at 28hp at 9,700RPM. In my humble opinion, this could be a daily bike for any riders that are looking for a comfortable ride with more speed can kapchai but still retains the slim profile. For a commute of about 80-100km daily, it should be a good bike for it. You get to manouvre in traffic and at the same time still able to speed off on long highways.

The gallery is below the jump, so, see it and drool!  Continue reading “Gallery: Pictures of 2014 Kawasaki 250SL and Z250SL at WSBK Sepang – 250SL RM17,689”

Aprilia Dominates at Sepang Two Wins by Marco Melandri, Two One-Two Finishes for the RSV4

The first ever World Superbike Championship round at Sepang bore the Aprilia signature, dominator in both races. Marco Melandri’s double win and Sylvain Guintoli’s double second place confirmed the supremacy demonstrated from the first practice laps of the weekend where the RSV4, including the “satellite” bike ridden by Toni Elias, showed just how much they liked the Malaysian track.

Race 1 had the two RSV4s ridden by Marco Melandri and Sylvain Guintoli pulling away at the front from the very first lap to battle for the win. It was the rider from Ravenna who brought it home in the end, skilfully bridging the gap that had been created after a crashing pileup in the first few turns. Once he had caught up with his team mate, Marco overtook him in one of the braking sections on the tenth lap, holding onto the lead until the chequered flag.  Continue reading “Aprilia Dominates at Sepang Two Wins by Marco Melandri, Two One-Two Finishes for the RSV4”
