The Ducati 1199 is one of the fastest motorcycles from the tracks. Its power and agility can’t be rivaled by many models in its class and for many riders it represents the ultimate sports machine.
But it seems like the guys from MotoCorsa weren’t satisfy with the racy character of the stock Ducati 1199 and decided to give it a touch of…dirt.
Their take on the Ducati 1199 Panigale bears the name Terracorsa and is basically an off-road super sport motorcycle equipped with rugged tires and covered with a desert-inspired paint scheme.
The idea behind this project started when Bossman Arun Sharma from MotoCorsa and Ducati North America’s Quentin Wilson were preparing for their trip to Eastern Oregon and they decided to let their creativity go crazy to make the trip more interesting.
You have all the rights to believe that a job like this is pure blasphemy, but at least the motorcycle used by MotoCorsa was already wracked, so we won’t judge them too harsh.
If the performances of your Honda CBR1000RR are no longer keeping your adrenaline levels go crazy, than you should take into consideration a small power upgrade.
Two Brothers Racing is making your job easier with their new Power Plus kit that was especially developed for the 2012 Honda CBR1000RR.
The kit promises to improve the motorcycle’s output with up to 8 hp and 11 ft.lbs of torque. For the power upgrade we have to give credit to the Black Series Slip-on exhaust which is available with aluminum, titanium or high-temp carbon fiber canisters.
The kit also contains a P1X Power Tip, a igh-performance repack kit, an aluminium anodized red bolt kit and the Juice Box Pro fuel management system. Other items included in the kit are a TBR Red Shield t-shirt, decal stickers and a black side cover.
It is also worthy of being mentioned that the TBR Power Plus Kit is intended for closed-course competition use only, so in some state you may not be able to use on the public roads.
The kit is offered with a promotional price rated at $842.
The Kawasaki ZX-14R is by no means a boring bike, but the guys from Icon wanted to make it even cooler.
For the starters, they’ve redesigned the motorcycle’s fairing to make it slide easier through the air. For this job they’ve collaborated with Hotbodies which did a pretty nice job with the body lines. As far as colors are concerned, the motorcycle is dominated by Kawasaki’s iconic green paint which is combined with a few white and blue accents forming a race-inspired style.
Apart from the racy livery, the Kawasaki ZX-14R has also received a Leo Vince exhaust which rewards you with a mighty roar and improved engine performances.
Needles to say that the custom Kawasaki ZX-14R is packed with a long list of custom parts and accessories. Among them you’ll find Galfer petal rotors, green Performance Machine wheels, K&N filters and a Roaring Toyz extended swingarm. Moreover, Icon’s Kawasaki ZX-14R has received a custom seat made by Saddlemen and PIAA lights.
It is also worthy of being mentioned that the ride quality is kept in check by Ohlis suspensions and the stock OEM controls were ditched in favor of PSR units.
Local Motors is a relatively new company specialized on automotive design and technology and its purpose is to create unique and innovative vehicles. A while ago, the company amazed the automotive media with its capableRally Fighter , a sporty off road vehicle powered by a 6.2-liter V-8 that goes head to head with models like the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor.
Luckily the company didn’t stop there and its newest project is a custom motorcycle named the Racer.
The new custom bike has a pretty interesting story. To start this project Local Motors organized the Custom Motorcycle Design Challenge with Justin and Jarrod Del Prado of Arizona-based DP Custom Cycles.
The challenge was to invite a wide range of designers to come up with their version of a customized 2000-2003 Harley Davidson Sportster.
More than 2,400 files were submitted for evaluation and the winner was the DP Racer designed by Andre Costa of Portugal.
BMW’s motorcycles are certainly fast, but San Diego BMW Motorcycles wanted to see exactly how high they can raise the bar. Therefore, helped by Shane Kinderis, owner of Alpine Performance in Australia, they’ve tweaked the motorcycle’s water-cooled, 4-stroke in-line, four-cylinder-engine to make it crank out 220 hp (the stock unit delivers a maximum output of 193 hp). Besides the pumped up engine, the motorcycle has also received a new fairing for improved aerodynamics created by Mike Verdugo of Catalyst Composites in Escondido, CA.
After all the modifications were finished, the motorcycle was left on the hands of Erin Hunter and Andy Sills of Hunter Sills Racing, two high speed riders with a huge experience in Landspeed Racing competitions.
The modified BMW S 1000 RR was unleashed on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Wendover, Utah and has managed to hit a maximum speed of 224,190 miles per hour on Friday, August 16 2013, thus becoming the fastest motorcycle in BMW’s history.
The guys from HUSZ have decided to modify the Suzuki Savage and the end result is quite impressive. Their take on the motorcycle looks significantly more aggressive than the stock model and we especially like how HUSZ managed to change the motorcycle’s appearance without losing its Suzuki spirit.
The guys from HUSZ have ditched a lot of unnecessary parts to put more accent on the bikes 650cc engine. The motorcycle has also received a smaller fuel tank built and other important custom parts include the Biltwell handles, a new seat, a unique rear disc wheel and RYCA filters and jets.
The original rear fender was entirely removed in favor of a fresh one that further enhances the aggressive look of the motorcycle. The front fender is also gone and the front round headlight was replaced by a rectangular unit.
But the best part of this custom bike is by far its low price tag which is rated at only €3,500 ($4,6470).

The Yamaha Virago didn’t manage to impress many riders with its dull look, but this doesn’t mean that the bike doesn’t have a lot of potential if it meets the right tuner.
Therefore, after receiving a touch of magic from Classified Moto, the stock Yamaha Virago gained a totally fresh appearance and a more aggressive character.
The guys from Classified Moto don’t play when it comes to modifying bikes, so they went on and completely modified the motorcycle from the ground up.
The most important modifications include the aggressive rear end conversion and the Classified’s signature front-end swap.
It is also worthy of being mentioned that Virago’s DNA has received influences from some of its sportiest siblings. Therefore, the fork was borrowed from a 2009 Yamaha YZF R6-R (with a modified triple tree and upgraded bearings) while the rear suspension came from a 2008 YZF R6-S. Moreover, the front wheel was “stolen” from an R6-R while the rear one came from an R6-S.
There is also a Triumph Daytona adjustable shock, so in terms of on road performances the custom Yamaha XV920R has all it needs to deal great with anything you throw at it.
Other modifications include the chopped rear section of the subframe, a custom solo seat, a conical high-flow air filter and custom exhaust lines and silencers. The bike’s vital stats are now displayed on a single-piece multi-function digital gauge.
The Suzuki Hayabusa is a sporty machine especially created for speed-hungry riders. Its standard specs are impressive and once you’ll unleash it on the track it will instantly prove you that is one of the fastest commercially-available bikes from today’s market.
However, it seems like its aggressive character didn’t impress the guys from FCR, which decided that this Japanese monster needs some extra power.
Therefore, they’ve decided to add a NOS boost to the bike which raises the Hayabusa’s acceleration to mind blowing speeds.
Their new creation is named the 1240 Hayabusa NOS and apart from the NOS boost system it also comes with completely new bodywork and a few technical tweaks.
In terms of style, the motorcycle comes with a more aggressive fairing and its paint scheme is dominated by a mate black color which is combined with a few dark red accents. The motorcycle’s unique look is further enhanced by a set of stylish red chrome Mirra rims.
To be able to resist to the extra boost of power, the stock Hayabusa needed a whole new rear. So, the entire rear including the subframe and rear cowl was redeveloped in-house by FCR. The NOS boost’s steel tank was also custom made to fit the Hayabusa.
The guys from FCR have finished the jump by throwing a high-performance trumpet-style Muzzy exhaust into the mix.

The Kawasaki Ninja 1000 (also known as ZX-10R or Ninja ZX-6R) is one of the most wanted super sport motorcycles and many riders love to customize their beauties with various accessories.
One of the latest accessories especially developed for the Ninja comes from Hotbodies, a company specialized on designing aftermarket parts for motorcycles.
Their latest creation is a fender eliminator kit which makes the bike look even sportier. The fender eliminators are made of ABS and come in two style versions namely gloss black or textured black. It is also worthy of being mentioned that they come with a license plate bracket with LED lighting.
To be easy to install on the motorcycle the kits were designed to be a direct replacement of the original mud flaps, and use the same existing mounting points.
The new fender eliminator kit for the Kawasaki Ninja 1000 can be yours for only $50.
It is not an easy decision when it comes to making the purchase of an aftermarket exhaust. The smartest solution is to make a complete research before you make your final decision or to go the easiest way and choose a model that was especially developed for your bike.
If you are a BMW R1200GS rider, LeoVince USA makes your job easier, with its new LV One slip-on exhaust which is especially developed for the 2013 R1200GS and R1200GS Adventure. The exhaust promises to significantly improve the motorcycles performances by improving the medium to high end power performances.
As the R1200GS models were designed for tough and long journeys, the new Leo Vince exhaust was especially developed to suit a bike that is ridden at full throttle. It is also worthy of being mentioned that the exhaust is available with both stainless steel ($479) and carbon fiber canister ($579) options.
Compared to the stock exhaust, the LV One is slightly lighter and also comes with a removable EVO II sound insert that gives you the possibility to adjust the tone and lowers the dB levels.
