Racing Boy has shown a teaser in their FB page about the upcoming new products that is the much awaited UMA Racing Digital Meter for Yamaha 135LC V2. Surprisingly, they also make one for the Honda EX-5 and this is a good move from RB. I don’t what is the price, but can be estimated at around RM480+.
What’s good about this digital meter is that it can read RPM up to 15,000 RPM. This is good for those who need to get an accurate reading of their engine crankshaft rotation for power tuning. There is also shift light that lit up when the RPM is in the optimum powerband. Other than that, it is just looking so cool!
Thanks to Roger Lau Jiu Yuan for the tips.

Yamaha Return to Sepang
Yamaha Factory Racing set up in Sepang this week straight from Japan for the middle of the three overseas back-to-back races, the Grand Prix of Malaysia. Championship leader Jorge Lorenzo arrives with a 28-point lead at the top of the standings after a strong second place finish at Motegi on Sunday. The Sepang circuit holds starkly contrasting connotations for Lorenzo, being the scene of his World Championship title in 2010 countered by the tragic passing of Marco Simoncelli in 2011.
Ben Spies moves to Sepang determined to complete the final three races of the season on a high note following a disastrous Grand Prix of Japan which saw him retire on the second lap with braking issues. Due to the cancellation of last year’s race Spies has only competed once at the Sepang circuit, taking an impressive fourth place finish from fourth on the grid in his rookie year.

Yamaha YZF-R15 at GTMax
GTMax has updated their FB page with this picture of a YZF-R15. Usually they post the lineup of the bike that they are selling. Based on the comment I have read on the page, the price for this bike is said to be at RM14,000. Not sure whether it is true or not. If it is true, then we have more choice for 150cc bike other than its similar sibling in naked style, the FZ-150i from Yamaha. BTW, this R15 is 6-speed yo.

This picture if Modenas Dinamik is posted just a few hours ago by Syamsul Azwan Adry Azem on his FB. It got new orange livery which looks quite good. This 6-speed bike has been released long time ago but has been out of sight for many years, but there some rare occurance where I can see them in the Malaysian road. If this bike is coming back in production, it will fight nicely with Yamaha 125ZR.
The Modenas Dinamik 120 price is RM5,749 which is cheap considered it is equipped with front and rear brake, 6-speed transmission and monoshock suspension.
I don’t whether this is true or not, I’m sharing what I know to you all and hope you can share your valuable info too.
