Our recent post about Denise Milani ’s photo session on a quad is now being backed up by a new one indicating that the beautiful supermodel is passionate about virtually everything that goes fast, makes a lot of noise and allows people to experience a sense of freedom. This time, she poses (dressed only in color-matched lingerie) on a previous generation Honda CBR1000RR. Does she make this motorcycle look better, or what?
It is very likely that no stunt rider has ever before tied his motorcycle, a Honda CBR600RR to a parachute and drag it over a lake with a speed boat while simulating his soil routine, but this is precisely what this guy (with plenty of help) does. Watch the actual video after the jump.
Monkey bikes have never been expensive, breathtaking and neither the less record braking machines, but they do fit in a category of their own and, although never heard before, the words “World’s fastest monkey bike” have lead nine-time Dakar competitor Ivo Kastan to building what’s most likely the fastest ever monkey bike.
The Czech motorcycle enthusiast will take his specially tuned Honda monkey bike at Bonneville later this month, where it plans to take the small blast up to speeds of more than 106mph, confirming the “fastest ever” supposition and also setting a new record for the naked 175cc four-stroke class.
What’s left to say is that the bike features no rear suspension whatsoever, meaning that it can provide a very harsh ride. We wish Ivo Kastan the best of luck for his attempt!
Follow the jump for three interesting videos with the team preparing and testing the bike for Bonneville.
Honda has been a name associated with motorcycle racing for 50 years now and the Japanese manufacturer celebrates by creating a new web page. This reveals an impressive collection of previously unseen pictures and videos, but also free downloadable ringtones.
The new web page takes us through the most important steps in Honda racing history from the very beginnings and to this day, while showing barely released pictures along with the videos and MP3 ringtones. For a quick incursion into the past go to http://www.world.honda.com/MotoGP/history/
French tuner Ad Koncept has come up with a very interesting way to customize the 2009 Honda CBR1000RR , not that much in matters of technical upgrades but more in terms of extremely attractive styling. The new Playboy scheme looks simply awesome on the standard fairing, but we do notice the Ohlins suspension, new Brembo brakes and LeoVince exhaust as well as the Rizoma special kit that was added to the bike.
The new special livery is sure to make this bike stand out even more, especially if it is ridden by one of those bunnies that we all like.
Carpenters rarely drift away from their object of activity, but when someone thinks at having a wooden fairing built for a Honda Nighthawk, bike building (or, better said, bike dressing) turns into a job for the man with few tools and plenty of imagination.
This particular creation was spotted at the Cycle World International Motorcycle Show and we understand it was quite a big attraction.
Next year, Honda plans to release the VFR1200T not only as the Pan European replacement, but as the world’s most technologically-advanced motorcycle too. Because such a project is only undergone if the initial feedback is positive, the company has leaked the future bike’s sketches in an attempt to get an early start with the process. The friends from MCN were there to land a helping hand and now they speculate regarding the possible color schemes that the new VFR might receive.
The bike looks absolutely amazing regardless of the color schemes, but these do help in forming a better opinion of what Honda will create and so encourage people to mention what they think about what they see. So, what do you think about the 2010 Honda VRF1200T?
Honda has come up with yet another video of the Fury model, their first production chopper, which was specifically built for the US market.
The clip is destined to promote the unleashed beast on the TV screen and looks like a preview for a horror movie, continuing so the creative path indicated with the launch of the new model’s dedicated website.
Dani Pedrosa obtained a well-deserved victory at Mazda Raceways Laguna Seca this weekend, after more than a year away from the highest position of the podium. He managed to keep Valentino Rossi behind while ’the doctor’ was about to pass him on the last straight. A few more laps and Rossi could have take the win. A fantastic race for Pedrosa.
See the race results after the break.
Honda’s latest quarter-liter scooter destined for the Japanese market is called the Faze 250 and looks like nothing special unless you take a close good look at it and start brainstorming to remember where you’ve seen that headlight before. We kind of ruined the surprise for you with that title, but the all-new Honda VFR1200 is for sure the only possible answer.
The controversial design headlight seems to be adopted for various models, starting with the VFR1200 and now the Faze 250, meaning that Honda’s designers are definitely up to something quite radical here.
