Seams the Scrambler fever is spreading, this gem is derived from the Yamaha XV950 Star Bolt “the Yamaha bobber”. Yamaha gave ten XV950 Star Bolt to 10 custom builders and asked them to customize it the way they like.
Greg Hageman is the builder of this scrambler, Hageman is a famous customizer specializing in Yamaha and his design chosen by Yamaha as one of the ten best customizations. The concept is inspired by the 60s and 70s the golden age of scramblers.

In around 2 weeks from now, BMW will introduce its new Retro Roadster the “NineT “.The NineT will be powered buy the old” air-cooled 1200cc boxer engine, producing around 120hp which would be great for such a bike after a couple of mods.
The bike will also have the upside-down telescopic fork similar to the ones on the S 1000 RR. From the spy photos looks like its gonna have a natural aluminum finish and probably clear coated. Aprox wet weight is about 210 kg and it we cost around KD4500. —click for more—
169 kg with 148 HP, the snack that you won’t feel bloated after ! The bike comes with all the gismos you’ll ever need, riding Modes, fully integrated ABS, Ducati Traction Control (DTC), Ducati Quick Shift (DQS), Engine Brake Control (EBC) and full Ride-by-Wire (RbW) throttle control with Ducati e-Grip. The power to weight ratio is great, the rider will be able to go throttle happy without feeling guilty afterwords. I feel this bike will do much better that the 848 which didn’t get amble time to prove it self locally, it might also do better than the 1199 which is hot, harsh and very track focused.
This is the coolest corporate invitation i have ever got !
Thank you Zain, you never fail to outdo yourself
If you are a MotoGP fan then this iPhone app is worth a 12 pack, u’ll never miss a practice, a qualifying or a race…provided you have the TV channel thats broadcasting the all this live of course.
A couple of years back when BMW launched the S1000RR no one expected that this bike will dominate the super bikes for that long, the RR is still by far the most powerful production bike on the market its even much more powerful than some 1300cc bikes. But for riders with a twin engine fetish, you’ll need much more than horse power to capture their attention, you need a bike with soul, a bike with a character, a bike with a history, a bike that makes riders reminisce.
I guess BMW doesn’t need me to tell them this, they were smart enough to figure it out them self’s. So they decided to recreate the BMW R 90 S and because they have a lot of money they didn’t bother going back to the drawing boards, they decided to ride on someones else back, someone rebellious, someone that can put some soul in the dead long dead R90S. —click for more—
Every couple of years the motorcycle industry spits out a must have art piece, but the only problem with such bikes is that you have to treat is as an art piece ! The new KTM 1290 Super Duke R is an exception, its a super bad ass piece of art that begs you to give all of your “who’s your dady” treatment.
The KTM 1290 Super Duke R is modern minimalism at its best…no its more than that its actually a minimalist hardcore sex scene looping for your pleasure, its like one of those long orgasims and i bit you haven’t had any of those for a while.
The good news is that you wont have to wait long for that feeling, the Super Duke R will be available at K&S in November.
The growing Indian market is attracting bike manufacturers all over the world to get a share of the Indian market, and BMW is no exception as they just announced a deal with the Indian manufacturer TVS. The BMW TVS deal will give TVS access to BMW’s technology to help it compete against Honda and Bajaj.
TVS and BMW will also be jointly developing new models together but all joint bikes will be sub-500cc and will be sold either as BMW or TVS depending on the market they’re going to.
So be careful your next BMW might be actually a TVS with a TVS badge
