Motorcycles at Bangkok Show

I was to have Isle of Man specialist Coates covering the two (and wheeled side of the Bangkok Motor Show again year. The following is his report:

The major manufacturers were together with Zongshen representing a Chinese interest. representation was by a Thai Tiger and an present Dirtshop. The latter a Ducati Monster, Triumph Triple and BMW Adventurer as well as

For a change, the format of this report is by category of product than a schedule of models by each manufacturer.

The main contenders are surprise, Honda’s Fireblade, ZX1000 and Yamaha’s R1. Suzuki only the GSXR750, not the flagship 1 version.

Yamaha YZF-R1

for whatever reason showcased a not being the latest model, without the fly by wire braking, the ABS (C-ABS) as it is known. When Cycle News (MCN) UK the new ABS system on the latest Fireblade were ecstatic on its assistance to the under adverse braking i.e. wet / sandy or other conditions.

Under normal braking the ABS not operate, but under heavy it balances front and rear seamlessly for best effect the rider to stay in control. In a test MCN found an improvement in distance of 14 meters in the wet from 80 mph to a non C-ABS equipped bike.

So, no for Honda but if you are in the market for a new Fireblade, do until you can get the C-ABS model.

showed the new for 2009 color for the Ninja range by painting a in sections. The ZX10R will be in the traditional fluorescent green, black or pearl stardust The underseat exhaust system has and been replaced by a regular sized silencer on the offside. had very little success its flagship sports bike in any of racing in the 2008 season, so not was learned, I guess, to pass the road going machines.

Kawasaki is probably more than others for development and indeed have already out of MotoGP for 2009. So, no vote for the

The YZF-R1 is closely linked to MotoGP winning M1. For 2009 it is with an all-new 998cc four-cylinder engine with a crankshaft that runs an uneven firing interval of — 180є — 90є 180є. This innovative new ensures superb throttle allegedly giving a feeling the rider’s throttle hand is connected to the rear tyre.

The new feels and sounds smoother ever, and emits an unforgettable from the exhaust. Pushing out 182 PS at rpm with 115.5 Nm of torque at rpm, this engine is the technologically advanced powerplant Yamaha. In addition, the Deltabox is also new giving a better between rigidity and flexibility.

So my goes to Yamaha’s YZF-R1.

Electric cars can go the distance

shows its electric sports car the distance in Rallye Monte for Alternative Energies.

The American has set an record for the longest electric run with its Roadster. This was the round of the FIA Alternative Energies Cup and a 390 km drive through France.

its recharging outlet sealed by the Tesla Roadster was able to the course from Valence, to Monaco. The course took in driving, two-lane back and even mountain passes so varied from 30 km/h up to 100

Aside from toilet the Tesla — driven by Rudi Tuisk who is a part of the European operation — the car not went the entire distance but had a further 61 km of range left in the when it reached the end. F1 grand prix winner Frentzen drove the car during the special stage.

Tesla is now for the FIA authorities to verify the time and it as an official record for an electric car on a charge. It is also awaiting confirmation that the car averaged 45 for the journey.


Honda showed the concept machine, designated as a 6 6 speed automatic Sports The power-plant has been derived the Gold Wing model and is cc capacity with chain and twin gas shocks at the rear. It surprisingly small and the exhaust (six into three was a joy to the eye.

However, I suspect ground clearance on cornering be compromised.

Overall, with ABS in it did look the part. It will be to see if it follows the successful route concept to production relatively as did Suzuki’s B-King machine a three year period.



Undoubtedly the contenders were from exhibitor Zongshen Ryuka. It was to choose between the bikes on stand but the crudeness of the ZS125-50 through. This unbelievably low over weight, dull and looking machine finally this category.

Think, “unable to pull the off a rice pudding” and you will some concept of its performance.


Bummer for Hummer?

It is understood the divestment of both and GM’s Swedish brand, were key parts of GM’s plan. The world’s former auto-maker has been given a 60 days to come up with a convincing restructuring plan by the administration.

Honda presented the as a production prototype; modern for an already classic model and one is already in demand having widely exhibited elsewhere.

However, my eye was taken on the Tiger by the classic lines of their TT150 retro machine like an old time TT Lightweight from the Isle of Man TT in the 1960’s. the designer, to whom I spoke that was his design intent, to features of the racing MV Augustas, and Ducatis of that era.

In my he has succeeded with the tank and lines of the TT150, the cradle and the chromed guards; a pleasure to
