The W175 is sold in the international market in three key variants which differ mainly in terms of styling.

Kawasaki has announced the introduction of the new 2022 model year W175 motorcycle for the Indonesian market. With the latest update, the motorcycle received new color options. The bike is now available for purchase in four colors, namely Metallic Matte Covert Green, Metallic Resplendent Silver and Ebony-Black Style. Currently, there is no bike in the Indian market that directly competes with this motorcycle.

The W175 is sold in the international market in three key variants which differ mainly in terms of styling. The model’s base SE trim takes on a conventional modern-classic styling. It comes with a round headlight with chrome bezel, teardrop fuel tank, one-piece handlebars, chunky seat, peashooter-style exhaust, and spoked wheels.

The W175 also sells in the cafe racer version which sports a small mosquito net in the front with a ribbed pattern seat and a different color option. On top of that, there’s also a TR SE variant with tall scrambler-style fenders, beefed-up handlebars and an upswept exhaust.

All of these models draw power from the same air-cooled 177cc single-cylinder engine. This powertrain was designed to deliver nearly 12.6 hp of peak power. However, depending on the variant, the torque output varies from 13.2 Nm to 13.6 Nm.

Suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks with gaiters up front and dual springs in the rear. And for braking, it uses a disc-drum combination. The bike weighs only 126 kg making it a lightweight contender.

Interestingly, the same has also been spotted doing test drives on Indian roads several times, stoking the flames for its India launch. However, the flames now appear to be completely extinguished as the company has no immediate plans to roll it out in the Indian market.

The McAMS Yamaha rider had arrived to start the weekend without a podium visit to his name, as had title-winning teammate Mackenzie after he was absent with injury.

The Australian completed the turnaround for himself and his team with back-to-back wins after deciding to take over up front after shaking off Bradley Ray again in a race that echoed the previous one, with the same finishers of grandstand.

His forward charge was aided by several laps behind the safety car following a huge crash for Leon Haslam. His highside left his bike in three pieces and Glenn Irwin had nowhere to go. The two riders moved away but this allowed the gaps to narrow in the leading group.

It was O’Halloran’s seventeenth career victory and the win puts him second in the championship.

After being passed on lap seventeen, Ray made sure not to be let go and stayed in contention until the final stages, finishing 1.735s behind the Rich Energy OMG Yamaha.

Ray himself had taken the lead early on, taking over from poleman Kyle Ryde with a huge off-line move, which resulted in a block pass that took him from third to first, where he stayed until until the number 22 puts pressure.

The podium was completed again by Lee Jackson for Cheshire Molding FS-3 Kawasaki, who felt more confident on the bike on the second outing today after making some small changes to his mechanics.

Both sides of the Rich Energy OMG garage helped frantically rebuild Kyle Ryde’s Yamaha after it was destroyed in its spin crash in race two.

Ryde set a new lap record to sit on pole before crashing, and after an initial strong start he fell back, culminating in being passed by a flying Rory Skinner on the way to the line just at the end of the race on the second Kawasaki FS-3.

Christian Iddon was a solid and very lonely sixth for Buildbase Suzuki, a far cry from the next rider to see the checkered flag, Tom Sykes, who led the race’s long battle for seventh ahead of MCE Ducati.

An Abbotsford man who was recently sentenced to a year in prison in connection with a motorcycle accident that killed a Maple Ridge woman has been released on bail after filing an appeal.

Dan McLaughlin, spokesperson for the BC Prosecution Service, confirmed that Harrison Heth-Klems, 26, was released on Tuesday, May 10, on $10,000 cash bond plus two sureties (people who will ensure his compliance in the community).

The date of the call has not yet been set.

Heth-Klems was sentenced in December 2021, when the judge ruled that his conduct constituted “a marked departure from the standard of care that a reasonable person would have exercised in the same circumstances”.

Kinnee was a passenger on a 2000 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R driven by Heth-Klems – her boyfriend at the time – when they crashed into the back of a 2008 Lincoln Navigator.

The accident happened in the eastbound lane of South Parallel Road near Cole Road after Heth-Klems turned around to observe a separate collision on the adjacent Highway 1.

Ryan Farquhar and Dan Cooper crashed during Thursday’s Supertwin race at the 2016 North West 200

Northern Ireland road racer Ryan Farquhar explained how the accident in which he suffered chest and pelvic injuries at the North West 200 in 2016 could easily have cost him his life.

The Dungannon driver was involved in a high-speed accident on the Black Hill section of the Triangle circuit during Thursday night’s Supertwins race.

Farquhar collided with Dan Cooper at Black Hill, the same section of the course where England rider Malachi Mitchell-Thomas tragically crashed lost his life in an accident two days later.

“I was hit by another driver in this accident and there’s a good chance it probably saved my life,” Farquhar said. The BBC Bike Podcast.

“Young Malachi Mitchell-Thomas had the same accident on Saturday – he tucked the front in about the same square inch of tarmac as me and he wasn’t hit by another driver. That means he hit the wall harder and unfortunately suffered a fatal injury.

“Because I was hit by another rider who lost speed and knocked me down the road a bit before hitting the wall. Maybe that saved me.”

Being on the North West podium “the best buzz ever”

The 46-year-old, who holds the record for most Irish national road race wins, was initially described as ‘seriously ill’ after the incident and spent time in the unit of intensive care at the Royal Victoria Hospital before beginning a long convalescence. process.

Among his happiest memories of racing in the North West are his five individual victories and his position on the top step of the podium alongside his KMR Kawasaki teammates Jeremy McWilliams and Michael Rutter after a one-two- three for holding the inaugural Supertwins race in 2013.

“Looking back throughout my career, the one thing I’m really proud of is filling the podium at the North West with myself, Jeremy and Michael,” added the three-time Isle of Man TT winner.

“It doesn’t get better than that – on bikes that I had built and tuned and having us all up there first, second and third.

Michael Rutter, Ryan Farquhar and Jeremy McWilliams
Michael Rutter, Ryan Farquhar and Jeremy McWilliams were on the podium together after completing a one-two finish for Farquhar’s KMR team in the inaugural NW200 Supertwins in 2013

“I’ve raced every road race in the world, won the Isle of Man TT and the Ulster Grand Prix, but if you stand on the top step of the podium at the North West 200 by a nice sunny day, it’s the best buzz ever with all the crowds and the vibe.

“It’s very very special and the hairs are standing on the back of my neck even thinking about it now.

“I kept going to the North West to support a few riders and invest my own money, building my own bikes, purely because of my passion for the sport.

“Even though it always makes me nervous when the riders are out there, I still have a real love for road racing.”

“If people don’t contribute, there will be no North West 200”

This year, the North West 200 returns to the international road racing calendar for the first time since 2019 after an enforced hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Phillip McCallen, who won 11 races over a seven-year span between 1991 and 1997, including a record five in a single day in 1992, told the podcast the event’s future depends heavily on support increased financial support from those who attend an event.

“If you go to Windsor Park or a round of British Superbikes you don’t go there for nothing, but there are a lot of people who go to the North West and don’t buy a program, don’t contribute anything from the everything,” McCallen explained. .

“I hope these people start realizing ‘we’re going to lose this’. Unless they start contributing, there won’t be a North West 200.”

Defending WSBK champion Razgatlioglu failed to score a win in the first two rounds of the year at Aragon and Assen last month, struggling to keep pace with Kawasaki’s Jonathan Rea and the returnee from Ducati Alvaro Bautista.

Razgatlioglu had already dropped 27 points from the championship lead before the final race in Assen, where an accident with arch-rival Rea in 2021 forced both drivers to retire.

Now facing a whopping 45-point deficit in the riders’ standings to Bautista, Razgatlioglu needs a strong result in Portugal to get his championship challenge back on track and defend Yamaha’s first WSBK title in over a decade. .

Razgatlioglu’s manager and five-time Supersport world champion Sofuoglu has admitted the 25-year-old’s results have so far fallen short of expectations, but hopes the changes they have since agreed will give the desired results.

“As for the season, with Toprak, I can’t say that we started the season the way we wanted or hoped,” Sofuoglu told the official WSBK website. “We are a bit disappointed.

“Honestly, we sat down with Toprak and checked what we do, what we did and how every part of our life, training and mentality. I think we weren’t right , and Toprak decided to make some changes.

Razgatlioglu did not claim a victory until the ninth race of his winning campaign in 2021 at Misano, where Pirelli presented a new SCX qualifying tire that better suited the Yamaha rider.

However, early evidence suggests the competition this year is much tougher than in 2021, with Bautista in particular emerging as a tougher rival than his predecessor Scott Redding on an upgraded Ducati bike.

Explaining the changes Razgatlioglu has made ahead of the May 20-22 Estoril Round, Sofuoglu said: “In general, every practice, way of life, way of mentality, and I think we will have a Toprak different in Estoril.

“I will be there to support Toprak because we have to win. There have been six races and he still hasn’t been able to win anything, and he is world champion, we have to win. Now we are building very well for the next round.

GREENSBORO, NC (WGHP) – The Greensboro biker community is mourning the loss of a friend.

Andrew Goras, 33, died on Tuesday night after colliding with a car as he left work on his motorbike. It happened at the intersection of Industrial Avenue and Flagstone Drive in Greensboro.

Friends of Goras tell FOX8 that tragic accidents like this happen often, but they never thought they would lose one.

“It was just a total, complete shock,” said Amanda Bartley, Goras’ girlfriend of 14 years.

Goras was supposed to pick Bartley up Tuesday night after work.

“I messaged him…and asked him where he was, and he never looked at the message or replied,” she said.

Goras was riding his Kawasaki motorcycle east on Industrial Avenue around 10:45 p.m. A driver heading in the opposite direction turned left onto Flagstone Drive and Goras hit him.

He was ejected from his motorcycle and died on the spot. Police tape and pieces of his bike still remained on the street Wednesday afternoon.

“He was always super careful, and I thought he would pass, and he would be fine,” Bartley said. “It happens to other people. It never happens to you or anyone you know.

Goras’ death left a big hole in the North Carolina biker community. He was well known for his advocacy of bicycle safety and organizing fundraising rides to help others. Many of those he planned with his friend Tony Hogan.

“He makes all the toys for toddlers,” Hogan said. “He does charity, cancer events, people in financial difficulty. It doesn’t matter if it’s big or small. »

After the hundreds of fundraising races Goras has planned since he started racing in 2009, his friends are planning one in memory of the 33-year-old.

“I never imagined in my dreams that he would be the one on the poster that we’re going to ride for,” Hogan said.

Bikers will gather Sunday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. at Dunham Sports in Asheboro to remember the motorcyclist.

“He’s been on rides for other fallen cyclists and to collect donations for their families,” Bartley said. “I never thought I would be at the end of this.”

It costs $20 per bike. This money will go to Goras’ family in case of financial problems.

“He was just big on community, and I’m glad he left the legacy he did,” Bartley said.

Greensboro police are still investigating. They have not yet said anything about possible charges.
