Namun begitu, Honda CBR400R ini wujud untuk mengingatkan kita bahawa 400cc masih lagi wajar untuk dikisahkan. Walaupun hanya dipasarkan kepada beberapa negara sahaja, CBR400R ini mempunyai aura yang terkesan dari model 500cc iaitu CBR500R.

The particular supersports from KTM, the RC390, embodies the statement of speed and performance really well. It got all the packages to be a great supersports bike. Great chassis, great engine, high performance and of course great design.

Looks
KTM RC390 is an interesting bike in terms of design. When I see the concept first by KTM, it looks very sharp and carry the silhoutte of the KTM RC250GP which is being used in Moto3 racing series. What’s even better is that, the concept has been taken into the production with minimal changes in the overall design. It is still sharp, and most important, it is different than the rest of the supersports in its category. The iconic double front headlamp with double J LED fairing light is distinguishable from far to be a KTM. The rear lights also very interesting with a strong presence of the red light bar. This has to be one of my favourite rear light design so far. It looks different, creative and feels like it is designed by someone who knows bikes and love it very much.  Continue reading “2014 KTM RC390 Review – lightweight and track-ready -RM27,500”

KTM-Radiator-Guard-200-Duke

Available in Malaysia, you can now fit this standard parts for India’s KTM Duke radiator guard. The material is made from plastic but by the way it looks, it is thick enough and can withstand the weather elements. The price is also affordable at less than RM80. For me, this is a better radiator guard as compared to the ones made by aluminium or even steel since this one doesn’t restrict airflow and the ducts are angled for better air to go through it.    Continue reading “KTM 200 Duke Radiator Guard – the better guard for your radiator – RM80”
