Penang, 5 September 2013: Boon Siew Honda (M) Sdn Bhd today launched the new motorsport-inspired Honda Wave Dash R and S Series.
The two new bikes, which feature sporty aerodynamics, styling and performance, are set to raise the bar in the mid-size cub segment of the local market.
“The Wave Dash R and S are inspired by Honda Racing’s rich heritage in motorsports and are targeted at customers who want a bike that stands out. Furthermore, the Wave Dash R is available in a luminous orange with Respol Honda’s trademark styling,” said Mr Satoshi Okada, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Boon Siew Honda.
He said the new Wave Dash is built on four cornerstones – Dashing, Advanced Style, Sporty and High-Performance – and offers an adrenaline-filled ride while maintaining excellent fuel economy, affordability, reliability and durability.
More importantly, both the Wave Dash R and S feature tubeless tyres – a first for Honda Cubs – for improved safety.
It is now official that Honda CBR400R is actually is the real thing. This beauty will place in the middle of the range between CBR250R and CBR500R. The engine featured for this bike is 399cc 2-cylinder liquid-cooled with 67.0mm x 56.6m bore and stroke dimension. Based on this configuration we can see that the engine is high-revving one that should satisfy the buzz while taking it to the limit. Honda has been very active launching new bikes almost every two month and that is a good thing for rider like us. Even the CBR400R and CBR500R differs by ‘only’ 100cc, it can actually reflects to lower price and lower license restrictions in some country which again a good thing.

Early today, I have been to GTMax and found out that they already got the new 2011 Yamaha XJ6 Diversion on display. There are two available colours for the bike; Black and Blue. Both colours are beautiful, but I think for this bike, black is much more desirable.
One of the great thing about this bike is that it is equipped with Brembo master brake pump for the rear brake. The Brembo logo are great addition to this already great bike. The rear shock are equipped with adjustable monoshock.
Compared to Kawasaki ER-6f/n which came with parallel twin engine (2-piston), this XJ6 comes with inline-4 engine (4-piston). It is said that 4-piston engine can provide smoother power delivery and low gear shock when changing gear up or down.
2011 Yamaha XJ6 Diversion price is RM39,000 without registration. It is around RM44,000 if we include the registration, insurance and road tax.
2011 Yamaha XJ6 has been previewed on 18th March along with the launch of 2011 Yamaha 135LC. It is confirmed said to be available on June(mudah.my source) or July(arenakereta.com source). This CKD version of 600cc bike are said to be the challenger for Kawasaki ER6n and ER6f which is priced below RM43k. XJ6 are said to be 4-in-1 bike like the Ducati Multistrada, means you can drive this bike anywhere there is a road.
