The Superintendent recommends playing it safe this holiday season.

Speeding Motorists in Auckland have been warned police have a new tool in their fight against dangerous drivers in the Super City – an unmarked motorbike.

The bike recently arrived in Auckland, as part of a national trial which started in Canterbury in March and then moved to Wellington.

The blue Yamaha MT09TRAP 900cc, resembling a large touring bike, was recently spotted by eagle-eyed Auckland motorists on the city’s highways.

It has red and blue flashing lights and is ridden by an officer in regular motorcycle gear, rather than the motorcycle uniforms with badges worn by other bikers in police bike teams.

The unmarked motorbike is now in use across Auckland, a police spokeswoman said.

A second unmarked motorcycle is due to be rolled out next month for rollout to other districts outside of Auckland, she said.

“The trial will continue until early next year with the motorcycles rotating through the districts.

“Motorcyclists have been issued a plainclothes uniform but still have their operational uniform marked which they will use should operational needs dictate.”

In a statement announcing the Canterbury leg of the trial, Superintendent Steve Greally, director of the National Road Policing Center, said the move targeted unsafe behavior including not wearing seatbelts and using mobile phones .

“The fact that these motorcycles will not be immediately obvious as police vehicles should have a positive impact on deaths and serious injuries as it has overseas jurisdictions,” he said.

Senior Constable Mark Middleton of the Christchurch Police Motorcycle Team said at the time the unmarked motorbike had received a positive reception.

“I’ve done three shifts with the bike, and I’ve stopped and talked to at least 100 motorists. The reaction so far has been absolutely positive.

“No one has questioned my role, the flashing red and blue lights are particularly visible at night and are accepted without question.”

2022 Kawasaki Ninja 400 vs KTM RC 390: Price, Specs, Features Compared https://www.labougeotte.org/2022-kawasaki-ninja-400-vs-ktm-rc-390-price-specs-features-compared/ Sat, 25 Jun 2022 11:18:38 +0000 https://www.labougeotte.org/2022-kawasaki-ninja-400-vs-ktm-rc-390-price-specs-features-compared/ One of the biggest changes to the new Kawasaki Ninja 400 is the use of a BS 6 compliant 399cc parallel twin engine.

The new Kawasaki Ninja 400 comes as a much more expensive proposition compared to the KTM RC390 motorcycle.

It was only recently that Kawasaki India announced the launch of the newly updated 2022 Ninja 400 motorcycle in the market. The bike renews its rivalry with the KTM RC390 sport bike thanks to updated aesthetics, new features and a new, cleaner engine. At the price of 4.99 lakh (ex-showroom), the Ninja 400 comes as a significantly higher priced offering compared to its orange counterpart which has been priced at 3.14 lakh (old showroom). Here’s how the two models compare in various other aspects.

(Also Read: Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha and Kawasaki to Unplug 20 Motorcycles This Year)

On the outside, the new 2022 Ninja 400 has also been updated with new color options. It is now available in Lime Green with Ebony and Metallic Carbon Gray which features green highlights. And if you recall, the next-gen RC390 got a very thorough exterior update earlier this year. Its dual-beam headlights have been replaced with a larger single-lamp lamp reminiscent of higher-placed KTM bikes. Needless to point out, the two bikes look separate and quite premium in their categories.

One of the biggest changes to the new Ninja 400 includes the use of a 399cc parallel-twin engine that is BS 6 compliant. Previously, the BS 4-spec model was suspended from sales in the country in April 2020 due to stricter emission standards. In the latest iteration, the motorcycle is designed to deliver 44 hp of peak power and 37 Nm of peak torque. However, in comparison, the RC390 comes with a smaller 373cc single-cylinder engine, capable of producing 42.9bhp and 37Nm. Needless to point out that both bikes offer nearly equivalent power, despite the RC390 having a smaller engine. The drivetrain unit on both bikes remains a six-speed unit.

That said, the Ninja 400’s suspension duties are taken care of by 41mm telescopic front forks and a preload-adjustable monoshock for the rear. On the other hand, the RC390 has a non-adjustable upside-down front fork and a preload-adjustable monoshock for the rear.

Some of the key features of the 2022 RC390 include the use of a new TCS (traction control system), cornering ABS, quick shifter, TFT display and switchgear. multifunctional. While the Kawasaki comes with dual-channel ABS and an all-digital display.

popular wheels and the Waves festival returns to sunny Biarritz next week after a two-year hiatus. So it’s safe to assume that some European workshops are frantically buttoning up their bikes to show off at the event or to take part in the infamous Punks Peak hill climb.

Newcomer Wayders are ahead of the curve, however. They just finished their first custom bike, a Yamaha MT-07 cafe racer, with some time off. And it’s a first knockout performance from the Belgian outfit.

Yamaha MT-07 customized by Wayders
Wayders is a two-man crew, made up of friends Olivier Nadrin and Didier Hermann. Didier is the technical prodigy; he owned the European chip tuning company, Tuning Box, for thirty years. Olivier has a background in photography and videography, so he supports that part of the business.

The guys first connected when they helped each other customize their personal bikes. They eventually launched Wayders, then took it up a notch earlier this year with a new 1,900 square foot workshop, packing everything from heavy tools to a photo studio.

Yamaha MT-07 customized by Wayders
The Yamaha MT-07 is the first custom to come out of the new shop and was built purely to show off the company’s capabilities. We’re more used to seeing XSR700 Customs here, but the guys specifically had the MT-07 in mind as a donor.

“We chose this model because it is in the top 3 of the best-selling bikes in Europe, specifies Olivier, probably because of its affordable price. We like the uniqueness of the bike’s frame, and there aren’t many custom MT-07s.

Yamaha MT-07 customized by Wayders
Wayders started by grafting in a set of 41mm inverted forks, borrowed from the MT-07’s big sister, the MT-09. They also used the MT-09 yokes, but shaved off the OEM speedometer and ignition mounts. A small Daytona speedo now sits in a 3D printed bracket, with the ignition located on the left side of the engine.

A set of adjustable clips are mounted to the forks, fitted with Brembo brake and clutch controls. Wayders retained the original switches, but fitted new Ariette handles and Motogadget turn signals at the end of the handlebars.

Yamaha MT-07 customized by Wayders
A new Wilbers shock has been snug in the rear to complement the upgraded front suspension. But because the stock brakes were left alone, they handle the MT-07’s 74.8bhp and relatively low curb weight very well.

Wayders also kept the 17-inch alloy wheels, but wrapped them in chunky Pirelli Rally STR tires. And if the thought of scrambler tires on a cafe racer gnaws at you, rest assured the guys are considering upgrading to more racy rubber.

Yamaha MT-07 customized by Wayders
Yamaha’s entire MT line is known for its Neo Tokyo-inspired aesthetic. It’s cool in its own way, but it’s also a far cry from the style Wayders was going for here. So they ditched the MT-07’s stock plastics and trimmed its subframe to slim its silhouette.

The result is a machine that plays both sides of the fence. Look at the bottom half and the decidedly modern vibe of the 689cc parallel-twin engine dominates. Isolate the top half and the classic lines of a classic cafe racer will shine through.

Yamaha MT-07 customized by Wayders
To achieve this, Wayders sourced a replica Benelli Mojave fuel tank and then modified it to fit the original MT-07 frame. The stock fuel cap was reused on top and a stealth box was fabricated to house the battery and electronics below.

The livery was executed by Couleurs Ardentes and is inspired by one of Bell’s carbon fiber Bullitt helmet designs. It features a ghost checkered flag pattern, applied using a hydro-dipping technique. Finishing touches include milled aluminum tank badges and gold pinstripes to match the suspension components.

Yamaha MT-07 customized by Wayders
Out back is an all-new subframe, designed to mimic the design language of the rest of Yamaha’s frame. A custom seat sits on top, with upholstery by Atelier Sellerie & Garnissage.

The seat is secured by sliding the front under the rim of the fuel tank and snapping the backrest in place with a magnet. Removing it reveals a 3D printed tray, complete with a handmade leather wallet from Trip Machine Company. There is a small LED taillight built into the underside of it.

Yamaha MT-07 customized by Wayders
Other 3D printed parts are the radiator shrouds, sprocket cover and chain guard. Wayders also installed an LED headlight on bespoke brackets, rear assemblies with custom milled footpegs and a new rear brake master cylinder.

The airbox was ditched for a pair of mesh-covered Velocity Stacks, while the exhaust muffler was replaced with a blacked-out SC Project unit.

Yamaha MT-07 customized by Wayders
Olivier and Didier are days away from loading up their MT-07 and heading to the Basque Country for Wheels and Waves. We’d be shocked if they didn’t come back with a full order book.

RIDDEN: IN TANDEM WITH WAKA KOTAHI NZTA

When it comes to ever-changing technology, motorcycle manufacturers are still lagging behind the automotive industry.

Between the small budgets of boutique manufacturers, packaging challenges and the generally smaller market, it’s not really surprising that it’s taking some time for technology to go from four wheels to two.

So where are all the electric motorcycles?

The most obvious bike in the EV world, at least for Kiwis who lack the likes of the big dedicated e-bike brands Zero and Energica, was Harley-Davidson’s LiveWire (above), which has been transformed into its own brand shortly after launch.

It proved that an e-bike can not only work, but also be great fun! But the price tag of around $54,000 was way beyond the means of many but the most dedicated enthusiasts and sadly the brand has now been pulled from New Zealand.

Pricing, as well as packing enough range into a fun bike, is an issue the industry still struggles with to this day.

One solution could be the recently announced consortium between Honda, Yamaha, KTM and Piaggio, which is working to share the R&D costs of developing interchangeable battery technology for the motorcycle industry and to standardize charging systems.

Triumph Motorcycles (above) is developing its own EV platform with help from Williams Engineering; the Speed ​​​​Triple inspired TE-1 is now in the testing phase.

KTM and its sub-brands, Husqvarna and GasGas, have their EV offerings primarily aimed at kids, with the entry point being the Stacyc-based 12e and 16e balance bikes priced at $1259, while the SX- The more performance-oriented E 5 was over $10,000 and dropped by KTM NZ due to uncompetitive pricing. It wasn’t surprising, when the ICE equivalent of the SX-E can be had for just over $6,000.

There have been successful electric motorcycle startups that have come and gone, the most successful to date being California’s Zero Motorcycles, which has managed to steer clear of established motorcycle manufacturers looking to take a step back. progress on development. However, the closest Kiwis ever to an official Zero distributor was the company’s brief foray into the Australian market.

That was the fate of Zero Brammo’s competitor, which was gobbled up by Polaris Industries – Indian Motorcycle’s parent company – in 2015. To this day, apart from the FTR Mini (below) which is again a product aimed at kids, we saw no sign of Polaris releasing an all-electric bike.

But that’s not to say motorcycle manufacturers aren’t working to catch up with the auto industry.

BMW Motorrad already sells electric executive scooters in other markets and has recently introduced concept vehicles to fill in the gaps around the CE 04, such as the smaller CE 02 and the boxer-inspired Vision DC Roadster concept.

Others, like Honda and Yamaha, have prototypes aimed at the performance dirt bike world, with Yamaha recently announcing a new version of its TY-E electric test bike, while Honda has a concept motocross CRF- E.

There is also a growing contingent of small moped and mini-bike style electric commuters, such as the range supplied by Super Soco – which offer a decent range and ease of use for commuter-oriented riders, if not the thrills desired by weekend warriors.

However, despite the technological challenges faced by manufacturers in terms of EV development, by far the biggest barrier to EV success is the riders themselves. No matter how fast, fun and exciting an electric motorcycle is, motorcyclists are extremely drawn to the sound and smell of internal combustion engines. Overcoming this cultural view of what a motorcycle should be and creating demand for EV motorcycles is by far the biggest reason motorcycles are so behind in EV adoption.

A force spokesman said: “The car, a Ford KA, was approaching the A19 heading towards Cross Lane in Ingleby Arncliffe. The motorbike was heading south on the A19.

“Unfortunately the driver of the motorcycle, a 51-year-old man, was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the car suffered minor injuries and is assisting our investigations.”

At one point, traffic lined up for three miles as police set up diversions. A North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue spokesperson said they attended the scene with one device.



Diversions have been put in place following a crash on the A19.

Shortly before this incident, a three-car crash occurred on the A174 near Stainton at around 7am, causing delays and queues. Here one lane has been blocked on the westbound carriageway of the A174 from B1365 to B1380 Low Lane. Rescuers rushed to the scene.

North Yorkshire Police are appealing to anyone who witnessed the fatal collision on Wednesday morning to provide information. They are encouraged to call 101, select option two and ask for Jon Moss; or email jon.moss@northyorkshire.police.uk.

Shad is a Barcelona-based manufacturer of cases, bags, saddles and telephone mounting kits for motorcycles. They also have facilities in Shanghai and Jakarta. You may know that Shad also builds OEM cases for many major motorcycle manufacturers. Given all this experience and the trust of major OEMs, Shad is sure to make good products. I reviewed the SH58 top case and SH36 side cases two years ago on a Yamaha MT-10, and found that “the Shad line of luggage is easy to set up, well built and easy to live with. “.Now I am testing the Shad SH47 top case and the SH36 side cases on the Ultimate Motorcycling BMW R 1250 RS project bike to see how they look and perform compared to BMW accessory top and side cases made by Shad. I will also analyze why cyclists might choose one over the other. What goes into the decision to buy established OEM accessory cases over Shad’s offerings? Both are attractive in their own way. BMW has side and top racks that blend better with the bike when the bags have been removed. Shad offers mounting kits for the BMW, as well as many other makes and models, and they seem less integrated than the OEM mounts. Shad cases can be moved from bike to bike, as long as their 3P mounting system is available for each model. BMW boxes can only be moved to a few select models of their bikes. Appreciating the appearance of one over the other is subjective. Objectively, the Shad system for the Ultimate motorcycling The BMW R 1250 RS project bike has more capacity and costs less than half the price of the BMW kit.Price Breakdown Shad

  • Shad SH36 side cases: $528 each
  • Shad SH47 top case: $261
  • Shad 3P side case mounting system: $157
  • Shad top case rack: $67
  • Shad top case backrest: $33
  • Shad top case inner bag: $66
  • Inner bags for Shad side cases: $56Shad: $1,168 MSRP

BMW accessory

  • BMW touring side cases: $1,212/pair
  • BMW 30-litre top box: $703
  • BMW top case liner: $107
  • BMW top case backrest: $104
  • BMW Touring Suitcase Liner Set: $244Presumed top and side case brackets presentTotal BMW: $2,370 MSRP

The BMW-branded side cases total a capacity of 62 liters with 30 liters on top. The Shad SH36 side cases total 72 liters and the SH47 top case is 47 liters – the model numbers are not arbitrary. BMW’s cargo total is 92 liters, compared to Shad’s 119 liters. This difference of 27 liters (and 29%) is almost equal to one of BMW’s side cases. Additionally, Shad offers a wider range of sizes and styles.Shad cases review: the SH47 top caseI like being able to close the Shad cases for rolling without having to lock them. This allows me to easily access cargo at stops without fishing for my key. Shad mounts are a 10 minute install. All three holsters easily snap on and off the mounts. All three Shad cases easily lock together with a satisfying click. Closing mechanisms are strong, secure and easy to engage.Shad Case Review: Mounting SystemOpening and closing at stops during rides is simple, and Shad cases are much easier to use than brands that require users to rotate a locking plate to connect to the opposite side and then snap it into place. . These simply close on closing. There may be fitment issues with aftermarket exhausts. The Shad SH36 side cases fit both the OEM muffler and the Remus Black Hawk slip-on muffler that I recently reviewed. There is approximately two inches of clearance between the top of the muffler and the bottom of the housing.Shad cases review: PriceAs with the BMW accessory cases, the SH36s have an integrated shelf in the bottom on each side. These shelves prevent contents from spilling into the lids when opening. I use the Shad liner bags to further eliminate spills. I can secure the bags in the cases, leaving the zippers partially open so I can access the necessary contents without making a mess. SH36 cases come with an additional locking cylinder for installation on the top case to match the three cases with one. key. The SH47 uses a smaller cylinder than the SH36. However, Shad provided me with new cylinders for the SH36s, so all was well. Having two keys wouldn’t have been too bad – the BMW’s keyless start and all attached keys are still in my pocket.The Shad SH47 top case is just the right size for everyday riding – I leave the side cases at home and race with the SH47 only. It’s not too big or too small, with room for my little tool kit, flat repair kit, water, a change of glove and room for all the day’s acquisitions. . Even when the SH47 is loaded, I find the weight disappears and never influences the performance or handling of the bike. In fact, even with all the cases fitted and packed, there is no difference. So my reasons for choosing Shad over BMW’s accessory cases were cost, design, color and capacity – Shad offers top cases up to 59 litres. Shad requires an additional key, while BMW cases are linked to the original bike key. This was not enough to influence my decision.Shad Case Review: MSRPThen there are buyers who will only consider accessories from the motorcycle manufacturer, perhaps due to brand loyalty, a desire for genuine parts, or a good seller at the dealership. I totally understand why some buyers might prefer BMW cases just because they are BMW.Shad Cases Review: BMW R 1250 RS Project BikeHowever, the BMW cases are not very attractive to me, especially the silver covers, which I would like to paint immediately. Others may disagree that Shad cases have a sportier look. In their standard black, I think the Shad cases look great with any color bike. I did two long tours with the Shad SH47 top case and SH36 side cases on the Ultimate motorcycling BMW R 1250 RS Project Bike, and couldn’t be happier. The choice is yours. You know what I chose.

On Saturday, Toprak Razgaltioglu had to retire from the first race of the weekend with seven laps to go. Already incurring his second retirement of the year, following his crash with Jonathan Rea in Assen, the Yamaha rider is not satisfied with the current performance of his R1 and points to the area that worries him the most.

“I’m not angry, I’m much more annoyed that I don’t feel as good on the bike as I did last year. My goal is always to win, in 2021 I was fast here, this time I didn’t I could only fight for the podium. It bothers me. I have to brake earlier than usual because the bike does not slow down as it should. It’s a big problem’said the Turk.

Quoted by corsedimoto.com, the #1 said he’s always on the edge and can’t bond with his bike like he did last season:

– The bike needs to improve. If we can do that, everything else will be easy for us. I always do my best, but I also need a good bike. Last year, I was one with the bike, it was my bike. We have improved this year, it’s true. But I am not satisfied with some areas. Therefore, we will change some parts. For now, with this bike, winning is impossible. I am constantly at the limit, I can neither ride relaxed nor have fun.

With three rounds and a first Misano race completed, Razgatlioglu has 109 points – he is third in the championship – and sees Alvaro Bautista in the lead with 186 points and Jonathan Rea with 164 points.

It’s also the direction Ducati’s Francesco Bagnaia is looking for, emphasizing handling over top speed and meaning the Italian isn’t sure whether to ride a new fairing brought to Monday’s Catalunya test. .

Bagnaia, knocked out at the first corner of Sunday’s race, came back to complete 80 laps of the Barcelona circuit, his best time just 0.004s behind Yamaha winner Fabio Quartararo.

“I tested different elements and the biggest one was the fairing,” Bagnaia said. “The fairing worked pretty well. I’m pretty happy with it, but it’s just for testing for now. I don’t know if we’ll see it this year or not.

“It can help us not to lose too much maneuverability, but to have more top speed. So something that could help.

“But you can also think that this year I prefer to have less top speed, but more maneuverability. That’s the main thing now. Yamaha is the perfect example.

The 2021 title runner-up, who is now down 66 points from reigning world champion Quartararo, added:

“Right now they [Yamaha and Quartararo] have more maneuverability and it is also clear that top speed is not everything. This year we have improved a lot [but] we still need more grip like Yamaha. So we are working on it. »

While Bagnaia is willing to sacrifice some of the Desmosedici’s record top speed to reduce Yamaha’s cornering advantage, at least in the hands of Quartararo, the Frenchman (who scored 45 out of 50 despite the long straights in Mugello and Barcelona) looks from the other direction, urging Yamaha to find more top speed for 2023.

Jack Miller: “Like a different bike”

Bagnaia’s team-mate Jack Miller – who struggled with inconsistent tire performance over the Grand Prix weekend, including a crash to 14th in the race – was back in shape with the sixth-fastest lap (+0.295s) to the test.

“Much better today. Like riding a different bike,” he said.

“We swapped the rear wheels and it was fantastic. I rode the exact same bike I rode in the race this morning and was consistently doing 39s. Then once the tires got a few laps they dropped into the 40s. ‘is normal.

“The pace immediately this morning was fast and I felt comfortable on the bike. [tyre] I spent the middle of the day was not ideal, but the other two were fantastic. Able to stay in the 40s despite going in, going out and so on.

“We played with the setup. I think we are quite comfortable. It’s hard to say, there’s always a lot more rubber [at a test].

” We’ve tested [the new] fairing, which has its positives and negatives…. [the current fairing] turns better, it catches less wind. While the [new] the larger fairing is like between last year’s fairing and this year’s fairing. You don’t catch as much wind on your body, but you might be sacrificing a bit in the corner.

“That’s why I want to say there are positives and negatives. It may work for some places and maybe some not.

Miller, closely linked with a move to KTM next season, is ninth in the world championship.
