I have been missing out about the 2015 Kawasaki Ninja H2 in these few weeks after the second video about the Howling and Chirping. When I comeback to the Ninja H2 website, they have already uploaded 5 more videos about the H2. We can now confirmed that this bike will used a supercharged engine. The body style choosen is the supersport styling to enables it to fully maximise the potential of its supercharged engine. In some blogs and magazines, they have been estimating the top speed of this bike is in excess of 250km/h. I think it can go more than that since Kawasaki has compare this bike to 1971 Ninja H2 that has been a media sensation and the highest top speed recorded at that time. So, if Kawasaki wanted the 2014 Ninja H2 to be as sensational as the 1971 Ninja H2, we can expect the power, the top speed to be phenomenal.
Now, can Yamaha, Honda or even BMW brings the sensation back as much as we love what Kawasaki has done? Oh, the video is after the jump, click the playlist on the top left in the video box to watch the Vol.4, Vol.5, Vol.6, Vol.7 video after you watch the Vol.3.

Some say that this bike reminds them to the Akira bike in the Japan manga. I’d think it looks like that too. Honda says that bike is actually inspired from a style called Neo-futuristic. Whatever it is, this Honda NM4 Vultus that is powered by 745cc inline twin engine paired with Dual Clutch Transmission is one of the most interesting styling coming Japan so far.
Luckily, Ah Hong Motor has shown that this bike is already available in Malaysia and the price is at RM84,000 (basic). Will you be interested to buy it if you have the dough?

Eurotech Wheel Distribution Sdn Bhd has unveiled its duo of super sport series named RC200 and RC390 here in Shah Alam, Malaysia. The subject of this bike is to make it more track friendly and appeal to younger rider that are starting to learn to ride track bikes. Personally, I like the double headlight cluster that is enclosed in elongated frame that looks very different that what we always see. This might be the iconic look for KTM super sports bike for years to come as what BMW have done with the squinty headlight of the S1000RR.
On the first impression, this bike looks like the one bike from the racer in Moto3 series. The one in Moto3 is 250cc whereby the KTM RC200 are 199.5c and the KTM RC390 is 373.2cc. We can say that the RC series is the mix of the supersports style of the Moto3 racer and the base model from the Duke series. RC200 are able to produce maximum output of 25hp while the RC390 at 44hp.

Only 100cc but this bike made for the track for pure racing enthusiasts. Made with MotoGP in mind, the NSF100 features some of the design cues taken from the racer RC211V. This kind of small is great for a newbie to learn the handling of the bike in the track before going for bigger capacity and more powerful bike. If you can’t handle the small capacity bike, probably you can’t handle bigger capacity bikes too. Continue reading “Honda NSF100 – pure racer with 100cc – JPY410,00 or RM12,370”
Valentino Rossi had the Italian fans rejoicing at Misano after the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP star won his first race of the season in an intriguing San Marino and Rimini Grand Prix.
Starting from the front row, Rossi was engaged in a thrilling three-way battle for the lead in the early stages of the race with teammate Jorge Lorenzo and Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez, with Rossi taking the race lead on the fourth lap. After fending off an attack from Marquez – who crashed at turn four while challenging for first place before re-joining the race – Rossi was able to build a gap over Lorenzo and ultimately crossed the finish line 1.578 seconds ahead of his teammate, with the pair ensuring a 1-2 finish for Yamaha. In third place at Misano was Repsol Honda’s Dani Pedrosa, the Spaniard crossing the finish line another couple of seconds behind the leading pair.
