There is simply no way that the Aprilia RS125 could look better than with this gorgeous brunette girl alongside it. Why? Take a trip to Italy and you’ll see exactly this kind of babe either riding the bike or sitting at the back as passenger. The idea of combining these two beauties is just right and very realistic.
Jorge Lorenzo won the Spanish Grand Prix after a spectacular duel with Dani Pedrosa in the final lap of the Jerez MotoGP. Teammate Valentino Rossi was the third to pass the finish line.
Honda rider Dani Pedrosa set off from pole-position and pretty much dominated the Jerez race until, with six laps before the checker flag, Jorge Lorenzo came strong from behind and finally claimed the first place on the podium during the race’s final lap. Read the race results after the jump.
Yamaha’s 2010 motorcycle lineup includes their unchanged MotoGP-derived YZF-R1 and a Limited Edition YZF-R1 Valentino Rossi replica. This last comes in an exciting Valentino Rossi/Fiat Yamaha livery with the number "46" and "The Doctor" logos, as well as with the MotoGP star’s signature on the fuel tank.
Valentino Rossi added the 2009 MotoGP Championship to his long list of wins and this Limited Edition bike is a tribute to the Fiat Yamaha Team rider. The race replica bike is now available at a starting MSRP of $14,500. Those who satisfy with the standard model, which is available in Raven, Pearl White and Team Yamaha Blue/White, will be happy to find that the bike has an MSRP of $13,290. Hit the jump to see what Yamaha and the motorcycle press have to say about the YZF-R1.
Apparently, the rider of this Yamaha R6 was riding on LA’s Mulholland highway, also known as “the Snake,” this past weekend when he crashed as a result of a highside and the bike immediately caught fire. First attempts to extinguish the fire were in vain, so the owner simply watched his bike burning until it remained only frame and engine. Now that’s a sad moment for any biker out there. Let’s just hope that his insurance covers that.
If history has taught us anything, it’s that anything is possible, even if your time here on this planet is up.
You’ve probably heard of this piece of news by now and for what it’s worth, it’s still a little too hard to believe. If you haven’t heard of it, then please, by all means, keep on reading.
David Morales Colon, a 22-year old Puerto Rican, was gunned down last week and, while we feel bad for the family he left behind, we can’t help but be amazed on how Colon’s family decided to send-off their beloved David.
Go to the funeral service for David and you’re bound to get the shock of your life. Not only is there no casket, or urn for that matter, but as soon as you walk in the funeral home, you’ll be greeted by the sight of David himself dressed in a long-sleeved shirt, jeans, a hat, and a pair of sunglasses. And, oh yeah, he’s riding aHonda CBR600 F4 . The only thing is, David’s actually dead.
If you think that is a little strange then you are absolutely right, but apparently the motorcycle was a gift to David from his uncle and his family delivered it personally to the funeral home.
Incidentally, the funeral home where David is "riding" is also the same funeral home that prepared Ángel Luis "Pedrito" Pantojas Medina, a man that was shot 11 times. This man made a very special request before passing; he requested that his wake be held in his own home while wearing his favorite clothes. That is not the strange part. He also wanted to attend the wake standing up. This feat was accomplished b ythe funeral home employees by tying the corpse at the waist, torso, and head. Eerie.
Anyway, check out the video of David after the jump.
As hard as it may be to believe, this guy is taking a ride on that freeway in the sky. Recently gunned down in his Puerto Rico native, 22-year-old David Morales Colón benefits of a very unusual wake on his Honda CBR600 F4 Repsol edition. Wearing casual clothing and sun glasses, the embalmed dead man looks like he’s worming up for a ride on his bike.
The same funeral home that made this happen is also responsible for another young shooting victim that was displayed standing up during the wake a couple of years back. What next? See the video after the jump.
Fans of the 2009 Honda CBR1000RR can pass to the next level as the blade of fire carries on as a 2010 model year after getting some minor tweaks and new graphics. The most competitive liter bike ever to be produced with success for so long remains the most compact and aggressive looking in its class, while being one of the few supersports models to offer such a forgiving riding position. Let’s see what more.
Honda’s extremely popular street rocket, the CBR600RR carries on as a 2010 model year after getting only two new colors. The fact is that they didn’t had anything needing to be improved and engineers didn’t bother much with supplying new ideas to increase engine performance, sharpen handling or even improve the riding position. There’s also the 2010 CBR600RR C-ABS model, so at least they had it all figured out before starting to splash the new paint on this supersport motorcycle.
See what happens when a Honda National Motos pit crew member unintentionally drops gasoline all over a Honda CBR1000RR right after refueling. The bike had participated to the race up until that point, so the red hot exhaust acted as a spark, igniting the racing motorcycle just as the team members were trying to clean it up.
In a world where 50cc two-wheeled vehicles are called mopeds, the Aprilia RS 50 manages to stand out as a supersport model with all the features that come with the category.
The two-stroke engine’s 8.4 horsepower would mean the difference between a stock and an aftermarket exhaust in the case of most liter bikes, but when you start thinking that Aprilia took the time to develop an aluminum frame and swingarm, light wheels and an RSV-inspired fairing for the RS 50, you know that they’re up to something big (and not necessarily in terms of engine displacement) here.
Although it might seem like it’s designed for pure fun, the smallest supersport bike from Italy is here to teach kids and teenagers the first steps in sports riding. And when the engine starts feeling week, an 80cc cylinder kit will keep riders on their first RS bike before even considering the RS 125 alternative.
