Samuel has sent me an email about this radiator protector cover for superbikes. The brand is written ‘KIJ’ on the metal frame of the radiator cover, so, I’m not sure why it is named SUS radiator protector cover in the email that I received. No worries about that. The function of this radiator protector cover, yes, as the name suggests, is to protect the precious radiator from debris, stones and chips from the road from doing damage to it.

Czech superbike manufacturer has shown their bike, the FGR 2500 V6 which comes in 2,442cc 90-degree V6 configuration engine. The water-cooled engine produces 240hp (for comparison, 135LC is 12hp) and 200Nm of torque (135LC, 11Nm) which is enormous amount of power for this monstrous bike. The seat and fuel tank are made from carbon-fiber to reduce weight with 6 exhaust pipe on the rear end. The dry weight of this bike is 270kg supported with front and rear suspension from the ever popular Ohlins. Stopping power provided by Brembo.
It only takes 2.5sec for this bike to move from 0-100km/h and all the way to its top speed at 320km/h. Fuel consumption is at 6-8 liter per 100km (135LC, about 2.8 liter for 100km), which is not bad for this expensive machinery with big engine.
Ducati has been very busy lately with lots of their bike lineup. 1199 Panigale is the 2012 version of its superbike with two cylinder and 1199cc engine. It is going to be officially released this November.
The wait is almost over, the Ducati 1199 Panigale on its way.
The new generation Superbike will be unveiled at the EICMA International Motorcycle Show in Milan 10-13 November.
The new model not only will deliver record performance, breathtaking design and technical innovation, it also breaks with our Superbike tradition by adding a name to its 1199cc engine capacity, making a significant and warm association to its historic roots in the Borgo Panigale (pronounced “Pan-ee-gah-lee”) area of Bologna. In an Italian territory known as “Motor Valley” and where high performance and racing runs through the veins of its passionate people, we decided to underline our pride in being world ambassadors for the “Made in Italy” title by immortalizing our home town in the name of the best sportsbike ever built.
It looks brutal and dangerous. It looks like it ready to fight on the street. Aggressive styling and naked looks make it desirable enough for riders in search for good middleweight street bike.
Ducati confirm their 2012 Streetfighter 848 with the first officially released images of the brand new model set to add everyday accessibility to the Italian manufacturer’s famous naked sport bike family.
Combining a new and brilliantly engineered 848 Testastretta 11° engine with the enhanced geometry of a chassis that provides confidence-inspiring agility, the Streetfighter 848 has enriched its user-friendliness with a smooth and flexible power delivery, revised ergonomics and Ducati Traction Control.
The Ducati Streetfighter scored a round one knock-out when it entered the ring for the first time at the Milan show back in November 2008, winning the ‘Most Beautiful Bike’ award and raising the bar for extreme nakeds. Its asphalt-ripping reputation became the desire of sport naked connoisseurs throughout the world and the Streetfighter 848 will now widen that appeal even further with enhanced usability.
Available from November 2011 onwards, the new fighter is dressed in red for Ducati traditionalists, while yellow makes a return for mid-range purists and “dark stealth” provides a matte-black reminder of the Streetfighter’s aggressive image.
