They say no racer tries hard enough if it doesn’t eventually end up crashing, but we have no reason to question Michael Schumacher’s ambition as these pictures reflect that best.
Practicing at Sachsenring for the German Superbike, the former F1 champion skid the peg too much until it ended up crashing his Honda CBR1000RR during a high-speed corner. The funny part is the face he made while preparing to face the unforgiving test of the asphalt
Brainiac Richard Hammond is out to find the answer to a question only possible in the famous TV show: is a firework faster than the Fireblade or can a golf ball beat both at the same time.
With a top speed of 190 mph, the Honda is a fierce contender, but fireworks are also extremely fast accelerating, as well as golf balls. So in order to see which one is faster, the biker gets a 50 yard run out while the other two racing..things go from a standstill.
I wouldn’t put my money on the bike even though I have a feeling it won’t be the last one.
Remember the news about Michael Schumacher riding Team’s Ten Kate Honda Fireblade? Well, this is the video which completes it. Looks like the two wheels offer a whole new kind of excitement for a seven times F1 champion. Just look at him go around those corners!
When the lion is out to get your zebra neck, you’d better jump on the first Honda CBR929RR Fireblade and make your escape into the savanna. Better watch out for the threes as you don’t want to alert the leopard. In that case, you’ll be in for some stiff competition and you know how great the stake is. Actually, you’re the stake!
Ok Johnny, so you’re the coolest guy in your opinion now! You’ve got the helmet, you’ve showed your tattoo and you don’t even know how to release the clutch. Ohh…very poor! It is good that you have a “trainer, though”; at least there is somebody there to laugh at you when you leave your tattoo on the asphalt. Don’t bother to get up because you’ll make an even greater impression. Aren’t you tired of these unconscious kids that ask which one is the throttle and believe they’ve learned it all?
Ok, so you’ve bought the brand new Honda CBR1000RR, ridden it for a while and now feel like accessorizing it a little bit. This is where Rizoma enters the scene and presents its special range of accessories that are meant to give it that nice special feel of a new bike again.
They have the purpose of protecting and yet personalizing your latest acquisition so that you and your passenger will feel more at home on your bike once it is equipped with new brake and clutch levers, footpegs and foot brake lever, as well as the tranny and chain protection.
This is the sexiest motorcycle commercial I’ve seen so far, but keep in mind that the Honda CBR1000RR in this video is a 2007 model year and people have already started to enjoy the 2008 model year, which makes us expect for a next sexy video. Until then, check this one out!
We are witnessing what seems to be an overall improvement in the racing performance of the recently-entered motorcycle pilot and this can only be a good thing, but not necesarily with good results.
As Michael Schumacher seems not to be afraid of anything, his confidence increases and meets the bad side of racing on two wheels instead of four. During the second run of the German Superbike Championship, the famous racer was the protagonist of a slip that fortunately didn’t had any consequences and allowed him to finish the race.
On the track of Nurburgring Schumi slipped in the 11th lap when he situated on the seventeenth position. Even though it suffered no injuries and the bike wasn’t heavily damaged, the former Formula 1 champion confesses:
“It’s been a shame because I was enjoying. I braked too early with the front and I ended the steering. Race one had gone very well and finished on the 22th position.”
And this is how the former Ferrari rider checks its second fall. The first had taken place on the same bike, a Honda CBR1000RR, on the track of Oschersleben.
Honda starts producing a Special Edition of the CBR600RR which will be marketed for the Japanese market only. A Replica of the RC212V rode by Shinya Nakano last season for Konica Minolta Honda Team, the bike will cost 1 million and one hundred thousand yen (around $10.500).
Aspiring stuntman will be definitely attracted by this invention. The brilliant machinery will help you learn how to do a wheelie in complete safety. It is composed from a stock Honda CBR600F4i and a support which allows it to spin the rear wheel way above ground and with no risks involved.
