In a recent post we shown you how a motorcycle highside can end with the rider being thrown over a guardrail and we now came across a video showing another rider’s interaction with a guardrail, this time as a result of shifting error.

Apparently, this rider had a few successful runs on his Honda CBR600RR, but he then downshifts too late going into a turn. The rider attempts to brake but ends up in the guardrail after his front wheel locks up.

You really can’t compare a woman’s beauty with that of a motorcycle, but when we saw the pictures of the Aprilia RSV4 and Klara, we thought it’s at least worth giving it a try. The first has a strong heart of 180 beats at 12,500 rpm, it was born in 2009 and benefits of no less than 115 Nm of torque. The second measures 83-60-90, 5.7ft and it is 19 years old.

Yes, that’s an awful comparison indeed, but we’re happy to see we cannot say the same thing about these pictures showing both “characters” together. Enjoy!

Yamaha has today made public the first picture of the all-new 2010 FZ8 Fazer. The Japanese maker will be taking the wraps off their new middleweight half-faired supersport in May this year and wave good bye to the FZ6 Fazer .

Revealed: 2010 Yamaha FZ8 Fazer

They’re following the same teasing procedure as with the FZ8 naked, which will replace the FZ6 naked in Europe, but at least that first teaser picture made us really think we’re dealing with a completely new bike, while this one is a pure reminder of the model it replaces.

Although Kawasaki initially had plans to launch an entirely new Ninja ZX-10R for 2010, their final decision was to stick to what they already had and slightly improve their open class sportbike in an almost unnoticeable manner. The move doesn’t turn the 2010-spec Ninja ZX-10R into a threat for the competition, but this would still have to deal with a more aggressive look and small technical tweaks now characterizing the Green racing motorcycle with headlights.

The latest creation of italian designer Dario Caroselli is called the Ducati Desmo and it is, obviously, a supersport motorcycle designed following the strict requirements that end up turning these things into “two-wheeled Ferraris”.

While there is little hope that Ducati considers adding another liter bike for their already vast supersport lineup and this could ever turn into the actual one, Caroselli has even thought at three different color schemes that could be used. Looking at the details, you can easily spot the consecrated L-twin Ducati engine configuration, which in this case attracts our attention for being positioned right in the middle for better mass centralization.

We cannot say this is not a plausible and great looking concept, but we’re simply having serious doubts that it will ever find a better place than our desktop backgrounds.

After Nicky Hayden leaked a shot of the Ducati GP10 just before Christmas, Ducati went on and officially unveiled their MotoGP racing motorcycle this week in Italy. As a result of the bike’s new big-bang firing order, more traction and wheelie-control electronics, Casey Stoner says it is "a lot smoother on the throttle, it’s got a lot more bottom end. It’ll wheelie a lot less and just have so much more traction."

Although other details aren’t mentioned, we’re happy to see the two Ducati riders so enthusiastic about their new bike and the upcoming 2010 MotoGP season. Please watch the Ducati GP10 launch videos after the jump.

It is no secret to anyone that Kawasaki’s supersport look didn’t evolve quite as it should have during the past few years and people have even started calling the ZX-6R and the ZX-10R “ugly”. While we don’t entirely agree with that and we should give Kawi credit for repairing its faults starting with the 2010 models, it is also nice to check out how MotoRevue’s Jérôme Vannesson imagines the 2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R will look like.

This photoshop rendering unveils precisely what the motorcycle press is expecting from the future generation liter bike: angular lines that would reflect a blend of features found on visually attractive motorcycles such as the Hornet, from which it gets the tail and RC8 or YZF-M1 fairing with ZX-14 venting gills. Also, the paintjob is very attractive and still in accordance with the Team Green standards.

At the 14th snow sculpture competition held in Selva di Val Gardena, Italy, visitors got the chance to see “The Doctor” doing what it knows best despite the freezing temperatures outside.

This Valentino Rossi snow sculpture was created by snow artist Samuel Perathoner and brought him first place as the theme was "International Sports Personalities". The best part is that second place went to the creator of another Rossi sculpture, Matthias Kostner, which really shows how much Italians love their MotoGP star.

After almost 10 years away from racing, Bimota has turned plans into facts and came up with the Moto2 racer. This follows last February’s announcement that they’ll be joining Moto2 series as a racing team or at least as a chassis designer. The thing is that we are weeks away from the racing bike’s official unveiling and yet we have the opportunity to see the thing being tested on the Binetto race track near Bari, Italy in this leaked video that came to clear things for us. Goooo Bimooootaaa!
