Best Value Motorcycle of 2021: Triumph Trident 660

Being the penny tongs that we are, we love value for money when we see one, and the Triumph Trident 660 is definitely a smart choice for those looking to get what they pay for. Let’s take the price of $ 8,095 out of the equation for a moment. The Trident 660 is a good bike that we would expect to pay a few thousand more for. Starting with this nice three-cylinder engine, we were initially disappointed (and a little confused) to hear that its displacement had come down to 660cc compared to the 675cc which started its life as in the Triple Street and Daytona, but once you use it it all starts to make sense.

It might be a little smaller, but it still offers just as much fun as its big siblings. And then, of course, there’s the sound. The awesome Triple Whine is still so cool on the Trident 660. It’s also surprising how well it spins, handles and stops too. Add to that a basic electronics set that seems well suited for its purpose, and it’s no wonder John liked it after his first round. It’s also a little surprising to rethink its first place in our middleweight naked bike test, but consider the quality of the set – then bring its price down below $ 8,100 – and yes, well done to Triumph for hitting out of trouble in the Value department.

2021 Best Value Motorcycle Finalist: KTM 890 Duke

KTM really blocked the 890 Duke R when it first came out and paid little attention to the non-R version when it came out a year later and replaced the 790. We got that – you want to do your best. But do you really need the best Brembo fork and the best Brembo brakes? The 890 Duke – without R – says no. And we agree.

Before getting to the heart of the matter, a little note: this second place should have been occupied by the Yamaha MT-09 SP. However, if you remember, one of our rules is that at least one member of the MO the team must have ridden the bike before the selection process begins. Unfortunately for Yamaha, we did not get a bike in time. Fear not, he is now in contention for the 2022 honors, where he probably has a solid chance to do very well.

But back to the KTM. After mounting it during our 900cc-ish midweight bare bike test, he brought out all the good emotions in us. The 890 engine was an absolute pleasure to drive, its quickshifter (a problem on early 890 Duke R models) worked flawlessly, and the typical aggressive stance we learned from KTM shone bright. So much so that we barely missed the premium WP fork and Brembo calipers. And at $ 10,999 as of this writing, that’s not a lot of change to spend on a bike that can crack down on things costing a lot more. This seems to us to be the definition of value.

Who’s on your Motocross Legends Mt Rushmore?

When you think of the four best motocross riders in the world, do you think of Antonio Cairoli? Ricky Carmichael quickly springs to mind. Stefan Everts too. Jeremy McGrath will always be the most dominant supercross rider of all time. I’m here to assert that Antonio Cairoli’s name belongs alongside this illustrious trio and ahead of names like James Stewart, Ryan Dungey, Ryan Villopoto and Roger DeCoster.

To research this story, I searched on Google “The 10 Best Motocross Racers of All Time” and on a number of lists in Europe and the United States, Cairoli has only appeared in a few of the ‘between them and his highest ranking was in sixth place. As you can imagine, this was an article based in Europe – the US placed it somewhere between Ronnie Mac and Brandon from “Brandon’s First Race”.

Statistics don’t lie

In an age when you can produce any statistic to support any argument you wish to debate, the facts surrounding Cairoli’s career simply cannot be ignored. His career as a world champion began in 2004 and now, at 36, he remains as competitive as ever. During that time he racked up over 270 GP starts, so there is no doubt about his durability and longevity in a sport that is brutal for the mind and body. Out of these 270 GP starts, he has a 34% win rate. Let me rephrase this for you: In an 18-season career, Cairoli has won one in three GPs he’s lined up with.

Want more? He amassed 273 motorcycle victories during that time. Still not sold? How about his 177 podium appearances at an incredible 63 percent success rate. Yes, two GPs out of three that he starts, he climbs on the podium. His career points per GP are 38 out of 50 possible in each round. The racing world has marveled at Chad Reed’s incredible consistency throughout his career, but his stats have faded over time. Cairoli managed to maintain those stats and even this year he was neck-deep in the battle for the World Championship until an injury slowed his push down.

Humble beginnings

Born in Patti, Sicily, in 1985, Cairoli was no MX child prodigy. He was talented and dedicated, but he didn’t burst onto the scene with the hype, pressure and instant expectation of a James Stewart, nor does he have a family heritage like Stefan Everts. . Of course, he had won a Cadet and Junior Championship in Italy as his driving developed, but it was not a fast track to glory at a time when you had to make a living as a racing driver. Professional motocross on the grueling GP circuit.

1

With the support of Yamaha, Cairoli took part in the first GP of 2004 and registered a 21st place for the GP with the only points obtained thanks to a 15th place in the second race. But the brand determination that built his career kicked in and the learning curve was steep. The following GP in Spain saw him return to eighth place, third round in Portugal and he was in the top five with a fifth place. The fourth round in the Netherlands saw him record his first motorcycle podium and in the sixth round of 2004 he stepped onto the podium for the first time in a GP round.

His first race victory came in Round 11 in the Czech Republic and the renewed confidence spurred him on to the very next GP and his first of 93 GP victories. He went from a driver who barely scored the points in the first lap, to riding a wave of momentum throughout the 2004 season, eventually finishing in third place of the year and cementing himself as a competitor MX2 for the future.

By Carli Yamaha

Claudio De Carli formed a racing team in 1994 as his personal racing career came to an end. It was an association with Yamaha that saw the team win a 125cc World Championship with Alessio Chiodi in 1997, but it was Cairoli’s signing that really pushed the team to a new level and still stands. today. The De Carli / Yamaha / Cairoli relationship proved to be fruitful. From 2004 to 2009, Cairoli won three world championships, the first in 2005, including a one-season fight with Australian Andrew McFarlane. Cairoli narrowly missed the championship in 2006, but came back with a vengeance in 2007 to win another world title. Things were on track for a repeat in 2008 after winning four of the first nine GPs, but a torn ACL ended his season – despite still managing to finish sixth in the Championship.

The following year brought the change. Cairoli moved up to the 450 division in what was his last year on a Yamaha. Rumor has it that he found the YZ450F too much to handle after years of releasing a 250F and wanted a more maneuverable bike. His move to the 450cc class was an instant success as he won the championship on his very first attempt in what was believed to be a 400cc machine.

De Carli Yamaha’s six-year relationship with Cairoli spanned three world championships, a second, third and sixth place, but the winds of change were blowing behind the scenes and the relationship was about to enter into a new era.

By Carli KTM

1

KTM was making waves in Europe and looking to strengthen its presence and profile in the motocross world. They had already had success in the MX2 class but were looking for the ultimate crown, an MXGP championship.

Also, behind the scenes, KTM was developing a 350cc model for the market. At that time, there was talk of having only one major class, like Formula 1, and a mid-size four-stroke seemed to be the preferred option. Add to that Cairoli’s preference for a bike of this size, De Carli’s team infrastructure and proven track record and KTM’s desire to win, and suddenly things looked a lot more orange in 2010.

They never missed a beat as they changed manufacturers during the 2009 offseason. Cairoli proved to be the perfect fit and won the 2010 450cc motocross world championship, demonstrating the potential of a 350cc machine at the top. highest level. It was a great marketing bonus that a new bike, which was due to hit the market in 2011, had a championship on its first attempt.

It was the first of five World Trotting Championships for Cairoli and KTM. Twenty-twelve was the most dominant season of all. He has won 11 of 16 GPs this season, including seven consecutive to end the year.

As his dominance continued, many wondered if the bike Cairoli was on was still a 350cc machine. In order to quell the rumor, KTM even staged a PR stunt that saw the bike lower and be inspected during a GP.

But the 350cc didn’t last forever. In 2015, Cairoli returned to 450 and based his logic on two reasons. The first was that the 2016 KTM range has seen some significant updates and he felt that this set had the potential to suit him in the future. The second was the GP circuit tracks; the Italian felt that the tracks had gotten faster, simpler and less technical, so he wanted a more powerful bike. The 350 was parked and the 450 got out.

In 2015, Cairoli was in the midst of the championship race halfway through the season, but broke his elbow during his home GP. The following year saw him in the middle of a fight, eventually finishing second, before rebounding for his ninth world title in 2017. Although he had not won a world championship since the 2017 season, he remained ultra- competitive. He finished on the podium 14 times out of 19 races contested in 2018 to reach second place. He also won four rounds and two second places in the first nine rounds of 2019 until a shoulder issue ended his season.

Even in 2021, and facing a field that includes Herlings, Gajser, Prado, Febvre and Coldencoff, he’s still a constant threat and has landed four podiums in the first five laps.

Discreet

hero

Tony, as he is called in the paddock, is not the type to chase the headlines or cause controversy. Over the years there have been rumors of tension between him and some of his teammates, but none of this has ever been made public. The fact that Cairoli and Herlings were never on the same team when they were in the same class adds fuel to the fire, as do Cairoli and Prado. But while it may have been a management nightmare for KTM and the team members, all parts have been professional enough to keep it under the rug.

The end is near

During this season, Cairoli announced his retirement from full-time racing at the end of the year. But like everything in Cairoli’s career, there was even more magic to come. He was captain of the Italian team at the Motocross of Nations and over a weekend filled with drama he added another highlight to an already exceptional career by securing the smallest of victories against the Netherlands and his great rival Jeffery Herlings.

When asked at the end of the race if this would be his last MXoN and if the success made up for not winning that elusive 10th World GP crown, Cairoli replied: “Yes, I’m really happy, but this is not my last ‘Nations. I’m going to do more, and I really like this race, and one race a year is possible. I will be ready to race again next year and put the number one plate on the MXGP bike.

So the ride might not be over, it just slows down a bit. No matter if everything ends tomorrow, his legacy will live on forever. He might not have been a MX trailblazer in the world, a record-breaking machine, or a guy who reinvented the way we ride a dirt bike. He was just a hard-working Italian kid who rode a motocross bike faster than anyone else on the planet for nine years. And there is no problem with that!

He will be comfortably seated among the MX icons. Along with Carmichael, McGrath and Everts, he was one of those runners who was simply a cut above their opposition at the time. It is more than welcome to pull a chair to my Mt Rushmore of MX.

WorldSBK: Mercado: Razgatlioglu ‘very strong and consistent, deserves everything’ | Superbikes of the world https://www.labougeotte.org/worldsbk-mercado-razgatlioglu-very-strong-and-consistent-deserves-everything-superbikes-of-the-world/ Tue, 30 Nov 2021 12:05:55 +0000 https://www.labougeotte.org/worldsbk-mercado-razgatlioglu-very-strong-and-consistent-deserves-everything-superbikes-of-the-world/ Current MIE Honda WorldSBK rider Leandro Mercado believes former Stock 1000 competitor Toprak Razgatlioglu was the top rider in 2021.

Current MIE Honda WorldSBK rider Leandro Mercado believes former Stock 1000 competitor Toprak Razgatlioglu was the top rider in 2021.

Razgatlioglu won his first world title after overtaking six-time world champion Jonathan Rea.

Although the title fight went on until the last day of racing of the season, Razgatlioglu’s incredible consistency throughout the year saw him enter the first race with a 30-point lead.

Rea would go on to win both races at Mandalika, however, Razgatlioglu took the title in race one thanks to his second place finish.

Razgatlioglu’s overall performance and his ability to give his best under intense pressure was one of the main reasons other riders think he deserved the title.

This includes the former Stock 1000 Mercado competitor who called Razgatlioglu “very strong and consistent throughout the season”.

“I want to congratulate Toprak [Razgatlioglu] because he deserves this championship, having been very strong and consistent throughout the game, “added Mercado.

“We raced together in Stock 1000 and now he’s won the title. I’m happy for him because he’s a great rider and a good person, and he deserves everything.”

For the Argentinian rider, 2021 has been a relatively difficult season after missing several early-season rounds – four in total as the team were unable to attend due to internal issues.

However, when on the track, Mercado showed potential at various stages, including the final round in Indonesia, as he achieved his second best result of the season with a 9th place finish in the first race.

A fall in the second race ended his season disappointingly, but the 29-year-old was sixth before suffering the crash which would have been the best of the season.

Summarizing his two races, Mercado said: “I am very happy with the way the first race went, it was a good race and I am satisfied with both the end result, one of the best so far. ‘now, and the way we’ve done by getting a good start and then maintaining a good pace.

“The conditions weren’t easy at the start as half of the track was too wet for the slicks, but lap after lap it dried up and got a little easier. I’m happy because I was quite close to the leading group.

“I tried to close the gap with Bautista and even though I couldn’t manage it in the end. I kept my position and the gap so it was a very good race for us. eventually it was decided that the second race would go ahead, the conditions were really tough.

“Our start was even better than race 1 anyway, and it was great to fight at the front, but unfortunately I fell out of the race early on. really improved throughout the year in terms of where we started.

“We had some good races, with ups and downs, but we still continue our growth trend and we reach the top ten, which is very important in terms of the work we have done this year.

“It was not easy, but we have given ourselves 100% and will try to do better next year.”

Mercado, who has been MIE Honda’s sole rider for the past two seasons, will be joined by former MotoGP and Moto2 rider Hafizh Syahrin next season as the squad grows to two riders for the first time.

The Yamaha R1M is the closest thing to an M1 legal street https://www.labougeotte.org/the-yamaha-r1m-is-the-closest-thing-to-an-m1-legal-street/ Sun, 28 Nov 2021 22:00:00 +0000 https://www.labougeotte.org/the-yamaha-r1m-is-the-closest-thing-to-an-m1-legal-street/ Yamaha is known around the world for making high performance sport bikes for the track and the street.

Yamaha is known around the world for making high performance sport bikes for the track and the street. These days, it’s common for superbikes to have an accommodating racing bike variant that suits the track and goes beyond the limits of street bikes. Yamaha, on the other hand, is known for making road-approved bikes that blur the lines between inaccessible racing bikes and road-friendly superbikes. That’s exactly what the 2021 R1M does with its full carbon fiber bodywork and Öhlins semi-active suspension that sets the superbike apart from the already shiny R1.


The R1M was first released in 2015 and took the world by storm as an easy and fun-to-ride liter bike that delivers the same fun on the track and on the road. Due to the uniqueness of its engine and the availability of upgrades, the R1M has now become a favorite among sports bike enthusiasts. The new R1M is a refined version of the previous model but quite improved.

Engine upgrades in the new R1M kept the bike up to date with regulations while maintaining its maximum output of 197 horsepower while increasing torque slightly. The improvements on the exterior seem tiny compared to the modifications to its engine. The 998cc inline four-cylinder cross-plane engine receives a new cylinder head that reduces intake volume by 12%, a new fuel injection system and four catalysts in the exhaust chamber in addition to a silencer quieter and a new oil system that reduces BHP loss by 5%.


The 270 ° – 180 ° – 90 ° – 180 ° cross crank shot delivers smooth power and a unique, deep howl. However, the whole setup seems to complement each other and offers a direct throttle response that can be felt in tight corners. The bike maintains its application of power smoothly through long turns, allowing the rider to focus on the track with ease.

Better suspension allows more control

The main difference between the R1 and the R1M is the new NPhlins NPX pressurized chamber fork and the Electronic Racing Optimized Shock Absorber (ERS), which is also the very first gas-powered semi-active fork in a production motorcycle. Yamaha also incorporated nitrogen charged damping, which subsequently improves the consistency of damping characteristics and creates a better frontal feel compared to the base model. The ERS and Ӧhlins NPX pressure chambers are fully adjustable via the interface on the instrument panel.


Like the R1, the R1M also experienced a reduction in spring stiffness, although it was still heavier than the standard R1. This semi-active system works using feedback received from various ECU components such as brake pressure, throttle position, six-axis inertial measurement unit, power modes, traction and wheel control to make real-time adjustments in the suspension. The brakes also undergo a few changes like a smaller ABS pump, new pads and the removal of the linked brake system whereby the rear brakes do not engage when using the front brakes.

Since 2006 Yamaha bikes have used their chip controlled throttle, but there has always been a cable to the throttle body. Yamaha uses a magnetic pickup that sends the signal to a throttle motor, eliminating the use of cables between you and the throttle body. According to Yamaha, this will make the operation smoother and lighter, ultimately reducing rider fatigue.

Due to European regulations that require to have an ABS braking system that users cannot deactivate, Yamaha has introduced its brake control system with two modes BC1 and BC2 respectively. The latter’s ABS interventions are faster than those of the more track-oriented BC1, although all this is controlled by the IMU which determines the level of intervention.


The R1M also has built-in Wi-Fi capabilities, which allows the rider to tune everything through the Yamaha Y-Trac communication unit. The Y-Trac communication unit records data from IMU, ECU and GPS sensors to provide an accurate reading of what you are doing with the bike or how fast you are going. It even allows you to check the throttle position, bank angle, RPM, traction control and slip control for a given section of the track so you can have an accurate summary of your performance. on the track.

The 2020 R1M looks more like a racing bike than the R1Ms of the past due to changes to its semi-active system which seemed inconsistent to most users. Most riders also felt a more powerful feel on the brakes compared to the R1 and gave a sense of confidence in controlling it. Although there are some drawbacks to the bike, as it is still a physically demanding motorcycle to ride and the dashboard just doesn’t measure up to rivals like Ducati and BMW. To put it in layman’s terms, the Yamaha R1M is a bike designed for the track as well as for normal roads, but its pure performance and Yamaha craftsmanship means that it blurs the lines between out-of-the-box superbikes. and the unobtainable prototype racing bikes.

Paul Denning of Pata Yamaha waited 17 years to win a title, last weekend they celebrated the WorldSBK crown at every level.

It’s been a long way for the Crescent Racing team in the Yamaha WorldSBK effort to win the World Championship, but at Mandalika, Denning’s UK-based operation secured the biggest production championship of all, as a partner of Yamaha’s official technical efforts in Italy and Japan.

Winner of the BSB championship with John Reynolds in 2004, it is a new step for the still ambitious and motivated boss of Crescent Racing. Obtaining the titles of driver, team and rookie of the year with Toprak Razgatlioglu and Andrea Locatelli.

Still wearing his championship-winning celebration t-shirt two minutes after the group photo at the paddock show, Denning was asked if he thought the title might have been more or less decided two or three rounds before.

“I didn’t think it was done yesterday morning when we put him on pole,” Denning admitted. “Thirty points when there’s sixty-two up for grabs, and it’s become fifty, it’s not even close to being done.

“There are so many things that can go right, but so much can go wrong in a race. Also, the other reason we never thought like that is that you’re up against Jonathan Rea who won six titles, with a team that won six titles with him. They don’t miss a turn. They are absolutely on the spot, on and off the track. So that was never assumed.

“In terms of emotion, honestly I cried when he crossed the line. We let him down in a few races this year. He didn’t make one… Okay, he was wrong. when he left the track, but in terms of the result, crash, we did not have a single non-finish because of a driver’s error, out of 36 races. It’s ridiculous. No other rider can claim Not one. And he’s the world champion, rightly so, having won thirteen races.

Besides the two technical issues – a generator / charge issue in Catalunya and its fender brackets breaking and causing a crash in Portimao, the Yamaha was a much better bike in 2021 than it had previously been in. its pure track-to-track consistency. For all other Yamaha riders too.
Especially the lead pilot, it seems, and also his comments on the system which have benefited everyone.

“Obviously Toprak won at Estoril at the end of last year, but the biggest stage, and I’m not flattering, but the biggest stage is the runner. It has been a huge season that he has organized, but also the development that Yamaha has brought to the bike, focusing not on the big details but on the small details and making those details count.

“I think one of the biggest differences was developing the bike around Toprak’s needs. But it seems to have worked for Loka. Garrett [Gerloff] has had a season of ups and downs with a few things, but he’s clearly quick.

Watching Razgatlioglu, the new world champion, sitting in his chair in the Yamaha pit area as we walked past, Denning said: “The bike has taken a step, but the biggest step is the child sitting there. “

Watching Razgatlioglu roll is a joy for all but his rivals, but his brutal braking and total engagement style usually sees a rider of any skill level encountering the tarmac horizontally too often. Not Toprak.
When asked why, Denning simply replied, “The level of talent.

“You can choose any number of examples from this year, but the easiest one to choose would be FP1 here. A track that no one has taken a tour of. We all took a turn each. Dirty surface, inconsistent grip – a second and a half faster than anyone on the track… with the fact that Jonathan had a technical problem so he only made one out. So maybe the gap wasn’t that big. But, compared to the rest of the peloton, a very high quality peloton, a gap of one and a half seconds is just amazing.

“He’s pure talent, but a talent that has been honed in the way he trains with Kenan. A talent which is now just a little contained in view of its maturity. He is now able to keep the pin in the hand grenade and drive what you would call “smooth” for his style. I thought it was done today. I think Jonathan was obviously going to win the race. Four laps to go, I think we had two seconds to find, and I think another round, he would have tried to beat Johnny.

Razgatlioglu always says he just wants to win races, but there was some discussion about the bigger goal of the championship itself, which Razgatlioglu took into account.

“Yesterday, with three races to go, we discussed that for the first time this year we would be not only focused on winning, but focused on finishing. Because Jonathan would certainly be aggressive, and as they always are together, run together safely but aggressively. We thought, 62 points up for grabs here, if we’re going to follow Jonathan at home, then let’s do it. Today with the rain forecast this afternoon, anything can go wrong in a wet race.

“The goal was to treat this opening race as the last race of the championship, and that’s what we did. That’s why he’s gone so strong in the last four laps.

BSB Champions A few years ago Crescent Racing had been chasing a world championship in MotoGP and WorldSBK for some time, but now with Yamaha it has become a reality. So what does this mean for Crescent, John and Paul Denning’s former father-son team?

“I just hung up my dad at 3.30am or whatever it is in the morning (in UK). This is an important thing because from a business point of view it takes a lot of risk. From a personal point of view, there is a lot of sacrifice for other things that you can do in your life. So I can’t say that says it all because it’s motorcycle racing.

“We have lost championships very close, especially in British Superbike, and that doesn’t mean everything. It hurts a while, but from a professional point of view and from a sporting point of view, this moment is the best of 25 years in our history.

“John Reynolds won the BSB with us in 2004. We won three British Supersport titles. We lost three British Superbike titles in the last round of the year, which was a nervous feeling coming here!

Ryan nitzen | 23 November 2021

As more and more new bikes are announced at this year’s EICMA, the one that really caught our attention is the Yamaha Tenere 700 Raid 2022 prototype. Before we hope, yes, this bike is still a prototype, but it looks surprisingly like a hopped Tenere 700.

The Yamaha Tenere 700 is a serious contender in the mid-weight adventure bike market. It is certainly more of an off-road-oriented model, comparable to the KTM 890, Honda’s Africa Twin, etc. It’s by far one of the fastest growing segments in the industry, so it’s no surprise to see Big Blue playing an upgraded version of an already popular machine.

If only… How cool would a production version of this thing be ?!

The Raid prototype appears to be equipped with just about every part from the GYTR Accessory Catalog. A full titanium Akrapovič exhaust system, oil cooler, oversized brakes and race-ready suspension are just the tip of the iceberg on the spec sheet. The photos also show a large dashboard with a full display of the road-book navigation. In short, the bike looks like what Yamaha said “Hmm, if we were to race the Dakar on a Ténéré, what would we throw at it?”. This specially designed machine is still only a prototype, but it certainly makes us wonder what the future of adventure driving, or racing, might bring.

The Aerox 155 has a highly intelligent multi-function key switch with buttons for accessing the under-seat storage or fuel filler cap. No need to struggle to turn the key wondering whether to push or pull. Speaking of the fuel filler cap, which is also conveniently located – the column on the floor. The under-seat storage has a capacity of 24.5 liters and Yamaha claims it can hold an XL size full-face helmet and a few other stuff. This is possible, as long as you keep the crown of your helmet facing down. Then there is also a compartment with a charger for the phone. Which will be a constraint for the bigger phones that have now become so mainstream.

The Aerox 155 is a feature rich scooter. As I mentioned before, this scooter receives LED lighting at both ends. Then there is a nice, well laid out LCD display which contains a bunch of information like tachometer, trip meters, VVA indicator, fuel / consumption gauge and battery status. Apart from that, the instrument cluster is also Bluetooth enabled, which displays incoming call / text notifications, app notifications and the phone’s battery status. And the Y-connect app enables a plethora of functions such as telephony, geolocation, malfunction notification, fuel consumption monitoring, “revs dashboard” – which provides engine telemetry on the go. screen of your smartphone. Despite all this, the Aerox 155 does not offer turn-by-turn navigation, a feature available in much more affordable scooters.

Yamaha Aerox 155 verdict

At Rs 1.29 lakh ex-showroom, the Aerox 155 doesn’t come cheap! But when you stop to think about what it brings to the table in terms of a sophisticated engine, a sorted chassis with stunning handling that can put some bikes to shame, a long list of features, and a brilliant overall riding experience, this price is starting to drop. make more sense. Now, in terms of rivals, the closest on paper is the Aprilia SXR 160 which costs around Rs 1.26 lakh. Would I recommend this over the Aprilia? I certainly think so. It makes more horsepower, is the better of the two and also has more kit for around Rs 4000 more. You are also supported by the extensive Yamaha dealer and service network. So win-win. Did the Yamaha Aerox 155 then become our favorite sports scooter? Maybe it is!

Pack two wheels and tie it to a budget

When a man named Alex Jones drove from New York to Los Angeles on his beloved 2015 Yamaha FJR1300 in under 33 hours, he wasn’t just completing a list of goals by staying awake stupidly late – he was also plotting a route usually run by machines with a few extra tires.

“[The Cannonball record was] generally operate in high-end German cars, ”says Jones. “And I couldn’t afford it. But then a few years ago I read the story of a motorcycle race. I could do it on a small budget. So I found the right bike with 80,000 miles already and bought it for $ 4000.

The challenge itself – known as the Cannonball Baker Sea-To-Shining-Sea Memorial Trophy Dash – spans a breathtaking 2,800 mile distance from the Red Ball Garage in Manhattan to the Portofino Inn in Redondo Beach, California.

As for the “one run on a motorcycle”, was completed by a Calvin Cote, who claimed to have completed the dashboard on his BMW K1600 in 35 hours and six minutes – which means Jones broke the previous motorcycle record by a clear margin.

Calvin Cote, former Cannonball Dash motorcyclist record holder

Jones, still the fact-checker, fondly recalls the event in an email to RouteAndTrack:

“On the morning of October 17th at 6:24 am EST, I drove out of the Redball Garage in New York on a 2014 Yamaha FJR1300 equipped with a 7 gallon auxiliary fuel cell, radar detector, laser jammers, two mounted telephones and an auxiliary. lighting.”

“The road passed through a highway through the center of the country, with traffic and construction considerations. The ride was uneventful, the weather was clear but windy.

“During the ride, the cruise control stopped working and there were some issues with the electronics that did not go as planned. The auxiliary lighting went out just after dark and the rear tire was almost bald on arrival due to wind and road conditions.

“Arrival at the Portofino Hotel in Redondo Beach was at 12:16 pm PDT the next day for a total time of 32 hours and 52 minutes.”

We are also told the most grainy details by a man named Smith:

“He stopped seven times in total … and only for fuel.”

“He drank in a Camelback, ate protein bars, took caffeine pills to boost his alertness, and used a catheter and condom to drain the urine generated through a tube and onto the pavement… Funny details. “

Today Jones allegedly seeks to fuel the banks with his various hobbies and has put the iconic bike up for sale. here on craigslist (We will include these photos at the bottom of the article for you in a gallery.)

Included are “several phone mounts and power cables, plus a wired Valentine One radar detector and Adaptiv TPX laser jammer.” the seat and the luggage rack will be included in the sale, as the fuel cell replaced this).

There’s also a better windshield, highway stakes for more comfortable navigation, and a bunch of aftermarket lighting upgrades.

Machine maintenance included the recent change of brake pads and wheel bearings (performed in the last 10,000 miles), as well as a new set of tires.

Let us know if you’re tempted to take a bite and leave a comment below – we love to hear from you.

In the meantime, don’t forget to check other Yamaha news as good as other records currently broken by motorcyclists, and as always, be careful around the corners.
