Now available in UK SHARK dealers is the new Vision-R Series 2 helmet. Designed with touring riders in mind, the helmet sits in the brands Discovery division. Taking features from the original Vision-R, the Series 2 has received some upgrades to make it even better.

The helmet as the name suggests, still benefits from the largest panoramic vision field available on the market. The visor aperture is 25% larger from top to bottom and 10% wider horizontally, compared to that of a standard visor aperture. The extra 10% given to peripheral vision increases lifesaver visibility, which makes the helmet ideal for learners or those new to motorcycling.  (more…)

KISKA is the design house for this Husqvarna Moto3 250cc bike that is made for Danny Kent. You just need to look at it just for a glance to notice that the livery is properly done. Just look how the fluorescent yellow wheel contrast with the purplish blue accent on the tank. The white base colour make it simple with the big RedBull logo on the side panel. Notice the big Husqvarna logo on the side that makes it looks like it is ready to pounce its competitors.

Well Husqvarna and KISKA, you won this time. At least in terms of properly designed livery.

Urban traffic congestion is a major problem in many European cities, and is set against a background of increased environmental awareness and the squeeze on many consumers’ disposable incomes. The landscape of personal mobility is set to change drastically, and Yamaha is working to develop New Mobility solutions designed to facilitate and encourage the adoption of a new mindset amongst urban commuters.

Despite the availability of a wide choice of scooters, a huge number of commuters continue to make their daily journey into the city using public transport or a car. In addition to these non-riding members of the public, there are also those riders who currently commute on 2-wheels – or may have done so in the past – and are attracted by the increased feeling of stability and riding confidence that are associated with a new 3-wheel concept.

The all-new Tricity is the first model in Yamaha’s New Mobility segment, and it represents a new solution to the issue of personal transportation. Unlike some other larger and heavier multi wheel scooter-style vehicles, the Tricity has been developed using a completely different approach in which lightness, sportiness, agility and ease of use are the key elements.  (more…)
