Yamaha Factory Racing set up for their ‘home’ race in Italy this weekend for the Gran Premio d’Italia at the Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello near Florence. Nestled deep in the Tuscan hills, the Mugello circuit is just over 300km from the team’s base in Gerno di Lesmo, near Milan. The track is a favourite for both Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi, with each scoring multiple victories across classes. Lorenzo can claim one 250cc win, two second place premier class finishes in 2009 and 2010 and the last two consecutive premier class victories in 2011 and 2012.

Rossi’s Mugello record includes one 125cc win in 1997, a 250cc win in 1999 and then an incredible seven-year consecutive premier class win streak at Mugello from 2002 to 2008, making him the only Grand Prix rider ever to take seven straight wins at his home race.   Continue reading “Yamaha Factory Racing Prepare for ‘Home’ Grand Prix at Mugello”

Suzuki Nex 115 – Keringkasan dalam kesempurnaan

Ringkas tetapi menghampiri kesempurnaan. Itulah ayat poyo gua bila bercerita mengenai skuter ini. Suzuki Nex merupakan skuter terbaru di pasaran yang pada mulanya gua tengok macam biasa-biasa saja. Tetapi setelah gua tengok iklan di majalah ni (Kapcai), blog di Indonesia dan Thailand, semua orang mengatakan bahawa skuter ini adalah antara yang terbaik dalam kelasnya. Bila gua periksa spesifikasi dan maklumat mengenai Nex ini, gua baru dapat tahu bahawa Nex ini mempunyai kuasa setinggi 6.9kW. Jumlah ini adalah besar berbanding dengan skuter lain malah lebih besar juga dibandingkan dengan moped lain yang mempunyai kapasiti enjin yang sama. Pada suatu masa dulu, gua masih ingat dengan kewujudan skuter yang popular dari Suzuki iaitu VS125 dan VR150 dimana pada masa itu skuter Suzuki cukup menguasai jalanraya kerana tidak ada skuter yang berkuasa setinggi itu di Malaysia. Kalau ada pun cuma Yamaha Pasola 50cc itu. Setelah beberapa dekad, penguasaan Suzuki semakin menurun kerana tiada model naik taraf skuter VS125 dan VR150 dalam jangkamasa yang lama. Kemudian, Suzuki terus cuba meneruskan lagenda skuter dengan pengenalan Skydrive dan Step 125. Namun begitu, pengenalan dua model tersebut akan diungguli oleh model Nex ini kerana gua mengagak bahawa Suzuki Nex ni akan jadi salah satu skuter terbaik Suzuki.  Continue reading “Edisi BM: Review Suzuki Nex 115”
