Yamaha prepared a big surprise for the fans of supersport bikes, as it will completely revamp its iconic YZF-R1 model. The new motorcycle will go head on with rivals such as the Aprilia RSV4, the Ducati 1199 Panigale S and the BMW HP4.

The upgraded version of the Yamaha YZF-R1 will make its official debut at the EICMA 2014 in November and promises to set new standards in the world of superbikes being fitted with an upgraded engine and a comprehensive list of fresh technologies.

For the moment, the details about the new model remain limited to only a few spy shots and some rumors. Word on the street says that the new Yamaha YZF-R1 will be available in two versions namely an aggressive race oriented model which could boost up to 230 hp and a more serene version which is aimed for a more domestic ride.

As far as style is concerned, the new Yamaha YZF-R1 won’t benefit of any mind-blowing upgrades so its already cool body won’t suffer major makeovers.

Stay tuned for more details!

Polaris will reveal soon its newest creation – the fresh Slingshot. The all-new trike will be a canvas for the latest technologies designed by the company and to spice things up before the launch, Polaris has released a short vide teaser which gives us a glimpse at the new model.

Judging by the first shots, the new Slingshot looks quite impressive inspiring a lot of confidence and agility. Its aggressive lines seem to cope well with the trike’s sporty character and set it apart from its other rivals which opted for a less intimidating style.

We also like the pattern used to arrange the front and rear lights and the entire front fascia which makes us think about the cool nose of the Ferrari FXX. The interior is pretty basic, but we’re glad to notice that the trike will be fitted with a manual shifter.

In terms of technologies, the new Polaris Slingshot is rumored to be equipped with features such as traction and stability control, power steering and ABS, but for the moment, there is no official info that can confirm these assumptions.
