Yamaha France will be supplying its motor heads with YZF-R1 and YZF-R6 models featuring a kit which transforms them in street legal replicas of the Yamaha M1 raced by Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo in the MotoGP Championship.

The kit is only available in France in a limited edition of only 35 units and it includes the full MotoGP-style fairing, gas tank cap, and graphics. Also, the bikes feature only the rider seat for extra truthfulness.

And you haven’t even heard the best of it. The kit can be adapted to a variety of new or used Yamaha R1 and R6 models so the price will be influenced by as much or as few elements of the kit you need to buy in order to have your bike look like Rossi’s.

Victory Motorcycles have reached their first decade of production and which better way to celebrate the occasion than with a limited edition anniversary model? The manufacturer has concentrated on its most distinguishable model, the Vision Tour, which apart from a fiery red color is just a little bit longer and comes filled with anniversary emblems.

What we must definitely mention is that Victory will only sell 100 exemplars of this new, greater model and all have already been booked. But that’s no impediment if you’re not ostentatious as the Touring lineup also contains the already famous Victory Vision Tour, Tour Comfort and Tour Premium, as well as Street and Street Premium models, which are new for 2009.

Suzuki presents today a dream come true: the Limited Edition MotoGP inspired Suzuki GSX-R1000.

Riders longing to look like Capirossi and Vermeulen must know that Suzuki has made this new limited edition GSX-R1000 available in special blue color, exactly like the one of the Suzuki GSV-R. Their strategy is to allow Loris Capirossi and Chris Vermeulen, as well as the team’s fans, to take to the road a GP-inspired colored version of one of the best track racing bikes ever made.

A number of exactly 800 lucky future owners from Australia, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, South Africa, UK, Spain and other countries will be riding this racing bike with headlight. On top of the 2008 Grand Prix base colour, a set of both Capirossi and Vermeulen graphics is also available in some markets.

Easy to be confused with an usual Bimota DB7, but a real piece of jewelery for a maker’s fan, the SP Limited Edition is a real demonstration of the Italian style.

Only five such motorcycles have been produced (only for the Spanish market) and they come with a series of improvements and modifications such as a modified centralizer and digital track speedometer, which make life on board a little more classy. Also, the fairing is made out of carbon fiber for a racing look.

If you did so, the answer to your question could come by reading an article published in the online edition of the New-York Times. Entitled “A Motorcycle For Moguls”, the article refers to those bikes that you an me can’t have, but which often make a good subject of talk for us.

Ever wondered why limited edition motorcycles exist?

Outrageously-priced two-wheelers such as the MV Agusta F4CC ($120,000) or the Ducati Desmosedici RR ($72,500) make you wonder about the technology and materials implemented, but as you hear that you can get the same rush on bikes that are eight time cheaper, you really don’t know what to think. Has the world turned upside down?

The answer is strongly related to each manufacturer’s marketing strategy, which in this cases tends to be the same: produce 100 limited edition models and sell them to those who want to feel special and satisfied of not being rich for nothing. Then the limited edition model’s success will reflect on the simple models of that same manufacturer (something that tells me they’re pretty much the same) and sales numbers increase, leaving everybody satisfied, even those who can’t afford the one with the long figure as MSRP.

Free advertising is also a thing of great importance as limited edition motorcycles not only fill up pockets with money paid on them, but with those saved from paid advertising. So next time you read about a limited edition model, think about these aspects and notice how you’ll start appreciating normal bikes more. But until then, read the New-York Times article.

This year Triumph celebrates 50 years from when the first Bonneville was produced and in order to mark the half of century of existence on roads around the world, the British manufacturer has created two brand new limited edition models, one designed by Belfast, and the other by Ewan McGregor.

The first is black painted and features gold pinstriping and Triumph announced to sell a few models till the end of this year.

The second one is copper-plated and the fact that Ewan McGregor designed it makes it one off and will be auctioned for raising funds for UNICEF.

It seems that the model that has taken the Triumph name around the world never stops bragging about its great and long existence and we can say it once again: “It’s a Bonneville!”
