It looks classic enough but with a distinction on the ‘hover’ seat style. I was thinking that this is a 946cc bike when I first know the name but actually it is 125cc 4-stroke engine equipped. Vespa have a good wide followers and it retains one of the icon in the 60s and 70s (80s, perharps) for its different style other than bikes from Japan. This Italy machine could be the new generation of Vespa that could take over the hearts of the world again, if it comes at the right price at this kind of economy right now.

2013 KTM Superduke 1290 R

The ultimate Duke for the KTM fans out there. This is the biggest capacity ever from KTM and this time it is not single-cylinder style. We can see the use or the V engine but I’m still not sure how many cylinders are there. This bike is unmistakenly KTM with the aggressive looks and orange theme of the overall body. I like the way KTM uses the mono-swing arm for the rear suspension. It reminds me the era of Mick Doohan with is 2-stroke 500cc MotoGP bike. The coloured wheel with white and orange colour adds the unique style of this Superduke. It will be unveiled soon at EICMA, Milan.¬† Read the rest of this entry »

This mod is looking familiar but this a better view of it. I’m guessing this mod is from Indonesia with the current modding style there. We can see custom fiber coversets with single seat. On the rear, the wheel are attached to the always beautiful mono swing arm or better known as ProArm swing arm from the Honda NSR150SP.
