As you all know, during GPs it’s not only the motorcycles, pilots and the teams behind them that put an awesome show together. At the paddocks, events such as the Ducati Fashion Show, which is supposed to present Ducati clothing, attract as many privileged and hungry eyes as do the races themselves. Here you have the best of the 2009 Ducati Fashion Show from both MotoGP and WSBK. Enjoy the photo gallery!
Very satisfied of the BMW S1000R superbike teaser showing the machine in the presence of supermodels and cheetahs, German photographer Markus Hofmann has decided to play the same card once again, this time to present Haute Couture.
“There are so many motorcycle manufacturers that combine motorcycles and women in an artless and sleazy way, that I thought there just had to be a better way of doing it. I had no intention of putting a naked woman on a bike, and it was very clear to me that the bike had to be the S 1000 RR Superbike in the same colour that people have seen on the racetrack in 2009. I didn’t want the bike to fade into the background either; showing the name of the manufacturer was also very important for me, because it made the feeling of a pit stop and racetrack environment much more authentic”
To us, this is the same scenario, only that the cheetahs were probably released in the wilderness meanwhile because they’re nowhere to be found. Video is attached after the break.
Harley-Davidson has declared November "Military Appreciation Month," inviting fans to pay a tribute to both active and retired U.S. Military personnel on a specially created “thank you” section of their website. Fans of the iconic American brand can create an electronic postcard featuring model Marisa Miller and Harley-Davidson motorcycles or buy limited-edition posters, postcards and calendars featuring the Victoria’s Secret Angel from HD dealerships. Also, one lucky active or retired military will win a motorcycle as part of the “Salute Those who Defend Freedom” campaign. Press release is attached after the jump.
Update: video is now also added.
Now that the racing year is over with Valentino Rossi and Ben Spies as winners of the World MotoGP Championship, respectively the World Superbike Championship we can concentrate on the other very attractive side of the motorcycle racing championships dominated by Yamaha – Miss Yamaha Racing 2009. And what better way to do that than putting together a nice picture gallery and let you decide on which Miss Yamaha Racing from all the rounds you like the most.
Simply take a look at the picture gallery to see how the 2009 Ducati Newport Beach Fashion Show can easily qualify as the Italian bike dealership event of the year. The exotic looking 1198S and Streetfighter are only shadowed by the gorgeous model wearing Ducati clothing. Ducatistis declared themselves more than satisfied with the event, which makes Ducati dealerships even greater places to work at.
After playing the daughter of a custom motorcycle builder in the movie Transformers, Megan Fox can also brag about recently being voted the most popular female bike passenger in a poll conducted by a British insurance company called Swinton.
More than 1000 riders were asked to vote and the conclusion is that “men are quite fickle when it comes to their favorite celebrity women,” said Antony Aronin, head of their motorcycle insurance division.
Gemma Atkinson turned out to be the second favorite bike passenger and Jessica Alba occupies third place in the preferences of British riders.
