The Best Standard Motorcycle of the year 2009


Ducati Monster 1100

The new M1100 is the best-ever example of Ducati's popular Monster series, combining sexy Italian design with an excellent chassis and lusty, torquey V-Twin grunt that helped make Ducati famous the world over.

The new M1100 is the best-ever example of Ducati's popular Monster series, combining sexy Italian design with an excellent chassis and lusty, torquey V-Twin grunt that helped make Ducati famous the world over.
The Italians followed up the lively new Monster 696 with this 1100cc version of its revered air-cooled Desmo V-Twin, and it knocked our socks off with its all'-round versatility, rich character and a huge grin factor.

The big Monster has cozy ergos that welcome urbane commuter duties, as a proper standard should, but it also has the capable chassis and grunty power to terrorize repli-racer sportbikes on a twisty road. Low-rev neck-snapping performance combines with neck-snapping Italian good looks. Ducati's mondo Streetfighter model is much more powerful, but the M1100 is at least as much fun and is thousands cheaper.

Honorable Mention – Harley-Davidson XR1200


The XR1200 will rearrange your perception of Harley-Davidson performance. Here Pete imagines himself taking the checkered flag at the Springfield Mile.

The XR1200 will rearrange your perception of Harley-Davidson performance. Here Pete imagines himself taking the checkered flag at the Springfield Mile.
When Harley-Davidson announced in summer 2007 it had created a new model called the XR1200, but that it was a Euro-only unit, everyone here in the States asked why we were left out. Then, after listening to the loyal masses, the Motor Company conceded and made it available for the U.S. as an '09.

Ergonomically the XR1200 strikes a good compromise between aggressive canyon attacker and sensible, upright everyday ride. And the potent Nissin brake calipers are crazy powerful. The flat-tracker look-alike styling is a head-turner, and the reliable 1200cc Sporty Twin has been massaged to yield the most horsepower of any air-cooled mill ever to emerge from H-D. Our only criticism is limited lean angle on the exhaust side impeding super-aggressive cornering, but you have to be the fast guy in your crowd for that to be a concern.

Best Exotica Motorcycle of The year 2009


Ducati Desmosedici RR
If you'd like a street-legal MotoGP bike, you're looking at the only game in town. MotoGP is the pinnacle of two-wheel motorsports, with the best riders in the world piloting the most exotic sportbikes ever seen on earth. So when Ducati unleashed a street-legal version of its 990cc V-Four GP bike, we were as giddy as Casey Stoner after winning his world championship. Our time aboard the GP bike with lights was brief – just part of a day at the racetrack – but it was a scintillating experience we won't soon forget. Blisteringly fast, it blows past regular literbikes like they are 600s. Abrupt throttle response and a race-stiff suspension makes you realize you're not worthy of its stratospheric potential, and its $72.5K price tag will have you thinking twice about shaving off seconds from your lap time. But it's the most exotic and outrageous sportbike we've ever ridden, causing us to consider selling our homes or our mothers to put one in our garage. If we do, we'll make sure to invite fellow D16RR owners Jay Leno, Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise over to the coffee shop to talk about how cool we are.


Yamaha/Star V-Max


Perhaps it seems a bit odd to label a Yamaha-built bike as an exotic, but consider its monstrous 200-horsepower V-Four engine stuffed in an aluminum frame, a ride-by-wire throttle, variable-length throttle intakes, bespoke radial master cylinders and hand-polished aluminum intake scoops. A lofty $17,990 MSRP keeps out the punters, helping to ensure its exotic and rare status. Mountains of power throughout the rev range is like engaging hyper-drive, and tire-smoking corner exits are delivered easier than anything else with two wheels. Yamaha has brought an icon back to life with the new Max, and it's crazier and more capable than ever. The V-Max isn't a cruiser and it's not a sportbike - it's both, and there's nothing else quite like it. It's an accessible exotic.

Best Eccentric Motorcycle of the year 2009


Can-Am Spyder

Although not technically a motorcycle, the well-engineered Can-Am Spyder has expanded open-air motoring to a new audience.

If standing out in a crowd is you’re cup o’ tea, you’re sure to be seen riding aboard the Can-Am Spyder Roadster! Although it can't lean like a motorcycle (or a Piaggio MP3), it’s got some open wheels and puts you in the wind all the same. Basically, it’s a “flipped around” three-wheeler, putting the two-wheeled part of the trike in the front. Packed full of technology as well as eye-catching appeal, the Spyder now comes in three colors and two transmission choices: standard foot-controlled shifting (SM5) or a version that is capable of being shifted by hand (SE5, a sequential electronic 5-speed). BRP has built in a lot of fun as well as safety. The coolest part of this machine is the licensing. When last we checked, if you live in California or Delaware, you don’t even need a motorcycle license to operate one on the open road. Aging and/or handicapped riders who still feel the need for speed and excitement they once received by ripping down the road on two wheels can again feel that old thrill on the Spyder, and it's also proving to be attractive to new and female riders.

Honorable Mention – Travertson V-REX


Built by the people who turned out the turbine-powered bike made famous by Jay Leno, the futuristic Travertson V-REX garners more attention than any motorcycle we've ever ridden.

In the custom cruiser mien, it's not unusual to throw down $50K or more for something that stands apart from the hordes of other choppers trying to be unique. And yet they are all pretty much just variations on tired themes. But nobody will think that when you pull up on a V-Rex. Looking like a refugee from a sci-fi movie, the Travertson-built monstrosity is unlike anything you've ever seen. The swingarm front suspension is the first thing to blow your mind, but everywhere else your eyes rest will continue the squall on your brain, such as the bespoke cast frame, the single-sided rear suspension and the alien-looking nose. There aren't many $40,000 bikes we are willing to describe as a bargain, but for its incredible traffic-stopping countenance, V-Rex qualifies.

The Best Cruiser Motorcycle of 2009



Triumph Thunderbird 1600

It's been cruiser utopia for the last decade or so, with every major manufacturer jumping into the market to piggyback on Harley-Davidson's astounding success for the feet-forward crowd. Harley's iconic 45-degree V-Twin has spawned an endless succession of imitators, many of them excellent in their own right. But we don't think we're alone in seeing this genre as a little bit stale. That's one reason why Triumph's new T-Bird made such an impression on us, as its parallel-Twin (a zero-degree Vee) stands apart in a sea of clones. Its 270-degree firing order supplies the requisite thumpity-thump exhaust note, but both its character and layout are unique. This might be a moot point if the 'Bird wasn't blessed with clean, graceful lines that follow a well-worn formula yet are distinct. And for those of you who like cruising on curvy roads in addition to the straight ones on the way to the cafe, the Trumpet can cut an inside track as tight as anything in its class.
Triumph's Thunderbird twists the cruiser mold by eschewing a V-Twin powerplant in favor of a character-rich parallel-Twin that retains a link with Triumphs of yore. Clean lines penned by an American designer are attractive without being too derivative, and a stout chassis encourages riding on twisty roads instead of avoiding them.

Honorable Mention – Suzuki Boulevard M90

Suzuki's M90 Boulevard combines unique styling, excellent handling and strong braking to create an unbeatable value in the power-cruiser segment.

Combine the look of a more powerful cruiser with comfortable ergos, handling and stability rarely if ever found in cruisers; grace it with a bigger Twin than any other bike in its class, then bring it at a price at or below the competition, and you’ve got yourself undeniable value. This is the exact scenario of Suzuki’s Boulevard M90. Looking a whole lot like its bigger, meaner M109 brother, the M90 gives power-cruiser fans the look they want matched to V-Twin power that surely has Honda, Kawasaki and Yamaha scratching their heads at the M90’s $9,999 tag. In today’s economy, value makes the perfect partner to performance.

Best of 2009 - Motorcycles of the Year


A sagging economy hasn't stopped the flow of amazing motorcycles
resume from K. Duke

While we enjoy ripping on substandard motorcycles, crappy bikes are hard to find these days. Take a look at any of our comparison tests from the last couple of years and you'll find only marginal differences between our declared winners and their competitors.

With so much high-quality product to choose from, culling the field down into our Best Of winners was an arduous task. But that didn't stop us from coming up with our favorite stuff from the class of '09! Introducing the first-annual Motorcycle.com Best Of awards. And the MoBo goes to...

Motorcycle of the Year

Triumph Street Triple R
-Triumph's Street Triple R is a fantastically versatile sporting package with one of our favorite engines of all time. It's an elemental motorcycle but with major-league performance built in, and its fun-to-ride quotient is sky high, earning our MoBo Motorcycle of the Year for 2009.
Triumph had a good thing going when it unveiled the sweet Street Triple 675, a pared-down streetfighter version of the beloved Daytona 675 sportbike. The Street Triple’s finest feature is its soul-stirring three-cylinder engine that boasts a broad powerband and a symphonic exhaust note. The motor, re-tuned from the Daytona, has a predictable but powerful output that makes it accessible and unintimidating to riders of all skill levels yet is satisfying for even the saltiest veterans. Comfortable ergos – including a reasonably low seat height – and an eminently toss-able nature made it a staff darling, but we were a little disappointed it had some bargain-minded bits to keep the retail figure low.

But like a dream come true, the Street Triple R was introduced just last year, replete with the Daytona’s up-spec fully adjustable suspension and potent radial-mount Nissin brake calipers, alleviating all of our concerns. The result is an invigorating and versatile roadster that stickers for less than $10K. Lofting the front wheel is a snap, and before you know it you’ll be drifting out the back end like an inspired Brit hooligan. And on your favorite twisty back road, its friendly yet potent character is almost unbeatable, proving that no one really needs triple-digit horsepower peaks. Now that Triumph perfected the Street in our eyes, it became the perfect Standard. And it's our favorite motorcycle of 2009.

t=v1+v2, It's the Way to Increase Trafic and Popularity Fast and Natural

I've ever seen and surfed to other blog, and I got information and trick that I feel it's good enough for us. The way is absolutely easy and I think it's logical enough. I have been being doing it, obviously, the result is reasonable. For all of you who want to know how, just follow some step from me below


First, copy and paste the magic article. . . . . below

---------------------------- copy and paste begin from here ------------------------------
Please read it well then apply correctly. . . .

a philosophy says" Honesty is the Best Policy, this is we shall prove. . . .
can honesty we proceed to produce traffic and popularity greater than complex concept from expert webmaster or expert SEO. . ? . . .
I am sure it can if this concept run correctly. . . , if this way is applied in your web appropriate with the rule so:
-YOUR WEB will have been flooded by so many traffics extraordinarily, day by day, without thinking busyly about SEO or doing promotion to all place in the internet world.
-YOUR WEB will have been flooded by so many backlinks extraordinaryly day by day, without hunting busyly for links to all place in the internet world.

If Albert Einstein used formula e=mc2 to unite potentiality mass and velocity of light to produce the remarkable nuclear energy, so we shall use FORMULA t=v1+v2 to unite potentiality of my web and your web TO PRODUCE SO MANY TRAFFIC and popularity remarkably too.

If Albert Einstein used plutonium and uranium to make nuclear bomb, so we use honesty and precision to make traffic bomb and this popularity.

Things you need to do is just following steps below:

1. make article posting like this one, or copy-paste this posting/article and give this article a title like this: "t=v1+v2, THE WAY TO INCREASE TRAFFIC and POPULARITY FAST and NATURAL
2-Next, copy or make the MAGIC SENTENCE exist below of number 4 then apply it onto your web/blog (on widget/sidebar) in part that is easiest for visitor to see it, for example on the top sidebar:
3-Remove or change the link or URL address of my posting on(Right Here!-1) to replace URL address of my friend on (Right Here!-2).
-To know the URL address of my posting and your posting you, you can do it by clicking the posting title that we made.
4. Then, fill the URL address of your posting on (Right Here!-1) by following the steps below.
You publish the article/posting 2 times. First, after this posting is finished to be made then publish it, and then you click onthe posting title to copy the URL address of the posting from the address bar in your browser. Second, edit the posting again by replacing the URL with the URL you just copied onto (Right Here!-1).

This is the " magic sentence" necessary for you to apply it onto your web/blog part (on widget/sidebar after, you changed URL- appropriate with the rule above)

" You Want to increase traffic/ visitor and popularity on your web/blog fast and unlimited. . . ? . . .
Let me do it. . . , I will do it for you, Absoutely FREE. . . ! . . click on (Right Here!-1) and (Right Here!-2)"


-So after this "Magic Sentence" is placed onto your web/blog, if there are visitors clicking on (Right Here!-1), so it will go to you posting link, and if there are visitor clicking on (Right Here!-2), so it will go to My posting link. . . and so on. it will make a network link that will broken if you do appropriate with the rule. . .
5-Below, there are 2 links: your link (is my web link now that must be replaced with your posting link) and my link (is my friend web link now that must be replaced with my posting link). so replace (the URL address)" your link" with" link url of your posting" and " my link is with link url my web" (by replacing my friend link).

your posting link about this article to replace (Right Here!-1) URL
my posting link about this article to replace (Right Here!-2) URL

5-It's done, prepare a counter tracker and for example a link checker like sitemeter and technorati to see flood traffic result and linkback on your web/blog.

What is the t=v1+t2. . . ?
t: total traffic you will get on your web in one day
v1: your web visitor total in one day
v2: visitor total v1 owned (the visitor from you web visitor) in one day.

Traffic:
For example, my web/blog or your web/blog in a day has average visitor 50 visitors. . , and all our follower apply our concept (the Magic Sentence) correctly, and from the 50 visitors each of them has also 50 visitor from their web/blog-, so our web/blog has opportunity to be visited by 50 + (50 x 50) visitor on the day= 2550 visitor, and will has opporunity to increase it also day by day, because every day, there are always new visitors in the internet world. Every day, there are also new bloggers or new websites in the internet world. . . just prove it by yourself

Popularity:
For example, our web/blog has 50 visitor in a day, and all of them apply this concept, so in that day your web/blog will get 100 backlinks onto your web, that is a link in "Magic Sentence" and a link in my link by multiplying to 50. and it will has opportunity increasing unlimitedly day by day out. . . .

why it necessary make your link and my link in the posting. . . ?
. . . this matter is to watches over our link eternity, because as we know that the link in posting has littler possibility to be erased. . . .

Warning!: Do not be cheated or manipulated this rule because this concept will not be maximal to prove the "Honesty is best strategy/policies". . . . . but I am sure that all of us do not want to break down our credibility by doing the action like such thing. . .

--------------------------------- finished ------------------------------------------


After you did the way, you are pleased also by improvisation making with overall pattern of my posting, giving a little welcome words or courtesy like on this posting. or Bla....bla....bla....

And then, add this advertisement onto your web/blog, for example like below (if you are still confused of newbie, just copy and paste the code below onto your blog on top side widget)

Yamaha WR250X, The Amazing Ride


Although Yamaha WR250X will not belongs to the big ten of motorcycle with the best design but doesn't mean that this motorcycle designs then will get the bad effect. Functionally, motorcycle design that fuse off road bike and street bike like such is really steady and as according to beginning plan yamaha building this motorcycle. Looks like, The Yamaha WR250X is resemble with trail motorcycle (offroad bike) commonly uses for hard roadfield. But when seeing the tyre used, likely Yamaha designs this motorcycle for highway consumption. With slender design and briefly, this motorcycle chasis is really designed based on trail motorcycle (offroad bike). The idea is designing a nimble motor that can be used in city. Four stroke engine DOHC 250cc installed in wr250x is designed based on engine of Yamana YZ-F engine that demoted in product series of motocross. This Engine that uses liquid cooling system is not really designed for speeding and because of such thing, the maximum speed limit that can be reached only around 130km/ hour. It is clearly not good match for engine 250cc installed. Possibly, fuel efficiency is the one of the consideration by Yamaha that claimed that this motor can run over 30km to every litre of fuel. With tank that can accommodate fuel 7,5 litres, you can pass through over around 226km, that is even still depending from your manner of riding this motor. For use in city, possibly that number can be more going down.

Because of use of construction of motorcross, it is clearly from this motorcycle control is superior. Long handlebar makes lighter the rider in doing manouvre. manouvering through empty roadside when you'e trapped in trafficjam is the one of this motorcycle superiority. Motorcycle news called that this motor is nimble but difficult to turn in high-speed without lossing of balance. They say that this motorcycle's rear suspension is a little less stable while turning. Several other weaknesses that also be said that motorcycle height is idealless for majority of people so that making difficult when must stop on midway. While, the seat construction is even also pleasantless and making the rider feels tired fast. Besides, Yamaha doesn't also prepare kick starter and you must always ascertain accumulator in good condition, except that you don't mind pushing this motorcycle that has weight as heavy as 135kg.

Tips to Choose Right Race Velg


Race velg variation model on markets is really many kinds models and various, but the important thing we have to do before buying is choosing thoroughly because nice model doesn't guarantee good in quality. there are some criteria that must be payed in buying good race velg, such as the following tips: - choose velg from metal that can hold big weight such from magnesium and alumunium forged (handiwork) wheel. velg from alumunium forged is very strong and light. strong metal can determine the design because it can be formed into different model. besides, choose also bearing house made from iron so that stronger. - don't be cheated by the nice price of expensive but faked. look at all explanations as described on the surface of velg or sticker sticked on that is written an information about year maker, the maker factory, and whether the velg had been test for loading test to test the strength and endurance of velg towards heavy and pressure. - if you really like with unique velg model, choose model that appropriate with what you want and also appropriate with your vehicle need. for example race velg for racing or velg to merely follow fashion and trend. - choose velg size appropriate of the size of your vehicle tyre. don't till if there is broken in the tyre, you are difficult to look for appropriate replacer tyre.

besides, there also that must be payed attention. race velg is often interpretted equal to tubeless velg because its construction velg is closed so that can hold air than standard velg where air can pass trough the velg. but in reality many race velg cannot become tubeless velg. so be more accurately. actually there is another primary factor in order that race velg serve the purpose of velg tubeless, that is tyre buffer construction in flat velg and there is key warp. if tyre buffer construction in velg is not flat/ formed warp, so it can not be used as tubeless velg because it can not lock the tyre in order the air is not getting out. important to remember when you are going to use tubeless tyre, besides tubeless velg (usually written tubeless on surface of velg), you must also use tubeless tyre, usually be written on tyre. don't occasionally use standard tyre/ tubetype to be tubeless tyre although your velg is race tubeless velg because it can be dangerous for your safety

Cross-plane Crank For Next Yamaha R6?


Since the R1’s new firing order appears to be successful, it begs the question about whether this system can be incorporated into Yamaha’s 600cc sportbike, the YZF-R6. So we questioned the R1’s project leader, Toyoshi Nishida, about whether we might see this configuration in the middleweight screamer. The R1’s project leader hinted that the next R6 might feature new engine technology that will enhance a rider’s feeling for traction at the rear tire. He told us that because a 600’s power output isn’t nearly as potent as a literbike’s, racers in the smaller class usually apply only full power, so the cross-plane’s part-throttle benefits wouldn’t be so obvious. He added that the counter-balancer necessary with the cross-plane arrangement would sap some power, hence it wouldn’t be the most efficient way to provide that direct connection to rear-tire traction for a 600.
However, he hinted that there is another way to aid rear-tire traction, and one that doesn’t involve electronics. Curious about what he referred to, I asked if there was the possibility of using a single-plane crankshaft arrangement in which the two paired pistons fire at the same time (instead of 180 degrees apart), similar to a project used a few years ago in the British Superbike championship on a Yamaha R1. That engine proved to work well in wet conditions, but it was soon outlawed by race organizers. Nishida-san’s response indicated I was barking up the wrong tree, but any loyal engineer would naturally want to keep information like that to himself. Whatever the case, we may see something special in the engine compartment when the next R6 is revealed.

What’s a Cross-plane Crankshaft?


The cross-plane crankshaft has its pistons arranged 90 degrees apart from each other. As high-performance motorcycle engines have grown more powerful, it’s become difficult to harness that power through the small contact patch on the rear tire. A typical four-cylinder engine uses a flat-plane crankshaft, and the two outer and two inner pistons rise and fall in pairs, firing 180 degrees apart. Torque is applied to the crank during combustion, of course, but also from inertia as the crankshaft rotates. This inertial torque is seen as noise to engineers, and it has the effect of confusing a rider about the amount of traction available from a bike’s rear tire.

The same holds true in the world of MotoGP racing, so Yamaha engineers introduced in 2004 an uneven firing interval for its inline four-cylinder M1 with what’s called a cross-plane crankshaft. In this new design the pistons are arranged 90 degrees apart from each other around the crank, which eliminates the inertial torque fluctuation of a typical four-cylinder mill. A balance shaft keeps vibration at tolerable levels. Yamaha has adapted this configuration to its R1 streetbike, providing enhanced traction and a very distinctive exhaust note we’ve been hearing from Valentino Rossi’s racebike.

Deus Ex Machina Yamaha Concept Bike



Challenged to rethink motorcycle transportation, Art Center College of Design student Jake Loniak decided the idea of a machine as an extension of the body should be taken literally. Inspired by Biomechatronics and called the Deus Ex Machina (not to be confused with that other Deus Ex Machina from Australia), Loniak's concept is an electric, vertically parking motorcycle controlled by 36 pneumatic muscles with 2 linear actuators.


Jake Loniak, a student of Art Center Pasadena has crammed the combination of motorcycle and tech-skeleton with seven artificial vertebra as well as the pneumatically attached helmet into an awesome looking Yamaha branded Deus Ex Machina. Jake has beyond his wild imagination to design this concept. The vehicle will be powered by ultra-capacitors and doped nano-phoshpate batteries similar to those already used in hybrids, with The motor is in-wheel. Jake believes that this vehicle can achieve a top speed of 75 mph. The recharge time of this vehicle is 15 minutes and cycle time is of 1 hour. The qualities are more than the qualities found in hybrid cars.

Tips to Care Motorcycle Chain


Motorcycle chain is one of vital part of motorcycle. it is not strange if motorcycle chain is worn-out or even broken, so this matter will decrease motorcycle ability and even can cause accident. therefore many rider try to care motorcycle chain with various way such as giving motorcycle chain lubricant and etc. their effort to care motorcycle chain in order durable is proper to be appreciated. but majority of people while maintaining motorcycle chain is with just any that is with only give second-hand lubricant on the motorcycle chain. the result, motorcycle chain is even also still worn-out fast and broken. so all that efforts inclined in vain. It can even endanger you because second-hand engine lubricant can cause your motorcycle slip. well, for that, in this article, we will give several tips to care your motorcyce chain well so that it will make your motorcycle chain more durable and stay slippery in order gives addition power maximally on your motorcycle. Below, tips to care your motorcycle chain:

- don't give chain with second-hand engine lubricant, because it is very slippery and can make chain be worn-out fast - give chain with special chain lubricant that is chain lube standard or chain lube for racing because its viscosity from chain lube is high so it can keep over the chain slippery in the whole weather, rainy or sunny. - besides, when baste chain with chain lube, chain lube will not leave remain on the chain because lubricant liquid will directly penetrate but it stay slippering the chain. - give cleaner on chain periodically in order the chain is escaped from things that can cause the chain be worn-out. - when give chain lube on chain, do that with twist the chain in order the lubricant can warp the chain well so that there are no chain part remained that unwraped.

2009 Yamaha YZF-R1, The New R1 You Wanna Own


The MotoGP-inspired R1 is the most advanced Open-class production motorcycle. The new R1 represents a paradigm shift in technology, performance and controllability among litre class sport bikes. Inspired by Yamaha's M1 MotoGP race bike, this next generation R1 features a cross plane crankshaft design with an uneven firing order to provide outsanding yet easy to control torque and an exceptionally linear throttle feal never experienced before. But there is far more to the new R1 than just a revolutionary new engine. The bark is bad. The bite is badder. Forget everything you ever knew about the supersport liter class. The all-new YZF-R1 is unlike anything before. That's because it's the world's first production motorcycle with a crossplane crankshaft. The result? Incredibly smooth power delivery and outrageous torque for a rush like you've never experienced.
Introducing the all new 2009 R1 … Yamaha's technical "Tour de Force." The new R1 has been designed to be the "Ultimate Cornering Master" of the open super sport class and one of the keys to incredible handling lies partly in the chassis but equally as important, in its ability to put useable power to the ground. This revolutionary new R1 delivers as much power as the rider wants, exactly when the rider wants it … by a simple twist of the right wrist; leaving the rider feeling like they are directly connected to the rear wheel of the new R1.

The new-generation YZF-R1 is more closely linked to our MotoGP winning M1 than ever before. For 2009 this legendary motorcycle is equipped with an all-new 998cc inline four-cylinder engine with a crossplane crankshaft that runs with an uneven firing interval of 270º - 180º - 90º - 180º. This innovative new design ensures superb throttle linearity, giving a feeling that the rider’s throttle hand is directly connected to the rear tyre. The new engine feels and sounds smoother than ever, and emits an unforgettable growl from the exhaust. Pushing out 182 PS at 12,500 rpm with 115.5 Nm of torque at 10,000 rpm, this MotoGP-inspired engine is without a doubt the most technologically advanced powerplant ever seen on a Yamaha supersport bike.

2009 Yamaha RD350 Concept


Could this be the return of the two-stroke sportbike?
Two-stroke motorcycle engines are akin to the dodo bird – or nearly so. Ring-ding streetbikes all but disappeared by the 1990s, reaching their zenith in the mid-’80s with the GP-inspired Yamaha RZ500, Suzuki RG500 Gamma and Honda NSR400, all of which were never officially available in America but were sold nearly everywhere else. The sporting two-stroke bike movement petered out with the Yamaha RZ350 in the late ’80s, choked down with catalytic converters in its exhaust expansion chambers.
Indeed, it’s the two-stroke motor’s inherent oil-burning design that has forced it from roads in which exhaust emissions are now strictly controlled. Bimota’s innovative 500cc Vdue seemed to offer the promise of a clean-burning, lightweight two-stroke sportbike, but drivability issues with its fuel-injected V-Twin could never be fully resolved, and this failure (Bimota’s first and only attempt at building its own engine) eventually precipitated the Italian company’s demise until its resurrection a few years ago.

But now word comes out of Italy that the two-stroke streetbike might be experiencing its own resurrection, as these concept sketches of a Yamaha RD350 illustrate. As before, the challenge is to create a two-cycle engine that is able to pass emissions regulations, but perhaps the recent innovations in two-stroke outboard boat motor technology can be somehow adapted to a street-legal motorcycle engine. The challenge Bimota and others faced in this regard has been getting the air/fuel mixture in and out efficiently at the higher revs required of a bike engine. It’s possible that new fuel-injection technology and effective catalyzers might be able to solve this longstanding conundrum.
At this point, it seems doubtful that we’ll be riding new two-stroke sportbikes anytime soon, but these sketches certainly whet the appetites of those who regard these simple and lightweight motors as the ultimate in sportbike powerplants. A prediction of 65-75 rear-wheel horsepower seems doable, and we’d expect an aluminum-framed bike like this to weigh somewhere in the 320-lb range, giving it a power-to-weight ratio close to that of a contemporary 600cc sportbike.
It sounds, to us, like the recipe for a fun and engaging ride. You?

New for 09 Triumph Daytona 675!


We’ve covered the all-new middleweight Ninja in exhausting detail over several stories this year (see the list of Related Reading links at the bottom of this story) so let’s focus on some of the updates to the Triumph. With “almost a hundred technical updates,” Triumph proclaims the ’09 model as a lighter, faster and better-stopping bike than the first generation. In addition to new high- and low-speed damping control for the fully adjustable fork and shock, the other big news is some weight loss and a bump in peak horsepower. Here’s a brief list of improvements to the Trumpet:


• 3hp power increase to 126 hp

• Max redline increased by 450 rpm up to 13,950 rpm
• Hydraulic cam chain tensioner from race kit now standard

• Revised cylinder head with new valves & modified combustion chamber

• Recalibrated EFI system to improve engine braking and decrease wheel chatter
• Total of 6.6 lbs weight saving, now a claimed 357 lbs
• New Nissin mono-block radial brake calipers & new brake rotors
• Higher ratio first gear from race kit now standard

• New rear wheel and rear wheel sprocket is combined 2.4 lbs lighter for less rotating mass

• New exhaust system is 4.4 lbs lighter than previous model

• New magnesium cam covers

• Black painted engine cases
At first glance from across a crowded parking lot, the new 675 is nearly indiscernible from previous model years. However, it has a taller windscreen, and as our European partner-in-motocrime, Tor Sagen, informed us from the Daytona’s world press launch this year, the “front end has been redesigned slightly to match the original rendition of the designers.”
