The 2014 season will see the return of Ducati (the winners of 31 world titles in World Superbike, composed of 17 Manufacturers and 14 Riders titles) in an official capacity to the World Superbike Championship.

It has been a colder situation in Malaysia and looking for a jacket, I’ve found this nice blue coloured Alpinestars Lance 3 Layer Waterproof jacket. Then, it shocked me to find out the jacket is priced at USD399.95, which when converted to Malaysian Ringgit, worth about RM1,320.

Coming from Alpinestars, we can expect highest quality from the line of apparel. This Lance 3L features waterproof outer shell, breathable membrane and 130g removable thermal liner jacket. All this can be fitted with Bio Armor chest and back protection if you want to take more than just a jacket. (more…)

But in India, Suzuki has released the Gixxer 150, a naked bike with 150cc engine. Usually, the naked version of the Suzukis are named GSR, like the GSR750.

This brings back its competitive edge to challenge the TVS Apache, Bajaj Pulsar and Honda Trigger in India. Said to be powered by the 13.8hp engine based on the GS 150R. (more…)

This could be good. (more…)
