2011 Honda CBR250R Review, Price ,Feature

2011 Honda CBR250R Review, Price ,Feature
The CBR250R reveals a mature side to this multinational company, who’s put on its thinking cap to conjure up a practical bike for daily use that’s also affordable.

The attractively faired CBR250R looks a full-size bike. This sporty quarter-liter motorcycle resembles Honda’s VFR1200F, also sporting a mass-centralized stance. The front fairing extends down to shroud its engine bay, and a curved visor provides ample high speed wind protection, wrapping around a sporty cockpit.

Neat attention to detail is apparent in the attractive steering head region, and you get clip-ons mounted above the triple clamp. We liked the 250R’s blue backlit LCD instruments with silver trim and a compact, easily deciphered layout. An analog tachometer dominates this bay, while you also see a bold digital speedometer, in addition to odometer, trip-counter, clock, fuel and temperature readouts. Switches include all you require, while there are smart buffed-alloy levers and nice feeling palm grips, although we missed the functionality of an adjustable clutch lever.

Curb weight, claimed to be 368 lbs. with ABS and 359 lbs. without, should likewise be comparable to the Ninja 250R's measured 377 lbs. You read that correctly: Honda's Combined ABS is optional, a first on a bike this small. A simple tubular frame forms a solid foundation, tied to a box-section steel swingarm by Honda's Pro-Link rising-rate suspension linkage. The 37mm fork is non-adjustable, though the single shock offers five preload settings. The sporty bodywork borrows liberally from Honda's full-sized CBRs, as well as the flagship VFR1200F.

Honda hasn't announced an MSRP yet, but expect it to be close if not equal to the Kawasaki's $3999 price tag. Manufacturing in Honda's Thailand facility will reduce production costs. Such favorable specifications suggest that the CBR250R has all the makings of a sales success. The smaller CBR125 is consistently one of the best-selling bikes of any displacement in Europe-in fact, it's the best selling bike in the UK-and Kawasaki's Ninja 250 was one of the very few bikes that continued to post decent sales in America through the recent economic downturn. Here's hoping this new entrant blows the quarter-liter sportbike class wide-open in America, and we'll have the option to buy a Suzuki GSX-R250 and Yamaha YZF-R2.5 next.

2011 BMW F800R First Ride Review, Price ,Feature

2011 BMW F800R First Ride Review, Price ,Feature


BMW know that the market for this bike in the UK is limited; over half of their worldwide sales of middleweights are made up of just France, Spain and Italy and the UK market is comparitively small at just 4%, so you'd wonder why they're putting a lot of effort into this new middleweight class, a class saturated by bikes like the Yamaha FZ6, Honda Hornet and Suzuki Gladius. But as we've seen from their recent S1000RR Superbike, BMW like a challenge.

The F800R fits into BMW's Urban category, alongside bikes like the R1200R and K1300R, but unlike those models, the F800R runs a parallel twin. The bike has been designed over two years to take on this competitive class, while costs have been kept to a minimum. I'll run you through the areas I think BMW have skimped on to save money, but first I want to talk about the engine.

Despite being an 800, the engine doesn't make as much power as its smaller capacity middleweight rivals, but it does produce more torque and on the road that translates into smoother drive and a less manic ride. The engine pulls from as low as two-thousand revs and even if you're tickling along in top gear at 40mph, it'll pull surprisingly hard, without being laboured. During running in periods, BMW claim they got 195 miles to a tank, which is on par with an R1200GS and I don't doubt this. On my ride, after 80 miles the fuel gauge wasn't even at half full.

In line with the demands of a dynamic roadster, the chassis is designed for excellent handling, agility and steering precision, and therefore maximum riding fun on winding country roads, though without compromises in terms of directional stability at high speeds, for example when riding on the motorway.

The streetbike freestyle world champion Christian Pfeiffer provides a foretaste of just how playfully the rider can handle the F 800 R. For over two years now he has ridden a version of the F 800 S exclusively tailored to his needs at international competitions and shows: the similarity of this bike to the current F 800 R is by no means coincidental. In future, the motorcycle acrobat will be able to demonstrate his skills on a machine based on the new F 800 R.

But the new F 800 R boasts more than just sporting talent: in the very best tradition of BMW it also possesses classic virtues such as outstanding seating comfort for rider and pillion passenger as well as an exemplary level of safety. For example, the F 800 R is optionally fitted with an ABS whose newly developed pressure sensor provides an even finer regulation of the system and therefore even greater safety – especially in connection with sporty riding.

Over the last two weeks, Tish has been introducing us to an array of wonderful bloggers who, in turn, are showing us how we might make our holiday season more festive. I'm thrilled to be included -- come see, won't you, and check out what several of us have to say about Christmas gifting on a zero budget. . .

New Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Classic LT 2011

Authentic Kawasaki Accessories are available through Kawasaki dealers. Careful attention to detail and exquisite craftsmanship of the engine covers, bodywork and those beautiful saddlebags add up to a motorcycle that turns heads whether it’s parked in your garage or cruising down the highway. Technologically modern though it may be, the Vulcan 1700 Classic LT is still infused with all the charm and visual appeal that’s expected from a Kawasaki cruiser. The Vulcan 1700 Classic LT also features a liquid-cooled alternator with rare-earth metals that produces a staggering 46.8 amps of electrical output, providing the 1700 Classic LT with more than enough current to power additional accessories.

Dual 300mm front disc brakes with twin piston calipers and a 300mm rear disc brake with a two-piston caliper help bring this stylish machine to sure, powerful stops. A 130/90 front and a 170/70 rear are mounted on those attractive wheels. The LT rolls on nine-spoke cast wheels, which use tubeless tires and complement its open road character. Up front, a large 43mm fork offers precise steering feedback and 5.5 inches of travel.

An elegantly simple rear swingarm with twin air assisted shocks provides 3.1 inches of rear suspension travel, and features air spring preload and four-way rebound adjustment. Adding to the light and easy handling are suspension components that match the Vulcan 1700 Classic LT’s intended usage. Those easy reach handlebars facilitate slow speed maneuvering and help maximize rider confidence.  Designed to be as light and slim as possible, the Classic LT’s single backbone double cradle frame offers a short seat to steering head distance, with a correspondingly short wheelbase.

Interior Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Classic LT 2011

The Classic LT transfers torque from the transmission to the rear Mated to that rumbling V-twin engine, a six speed transmission featuring overdriven fifth and sixth gears contributes to a relaxed ride and better fuel economy at highway speeds. This cruising-oriented machine features FI and exhaust system tuning that has been optimized to deliver peak torque at a lower rpm ideal for urban and back road environments. Besides the obvious FI advantages like improved fuel economy and automatic adjustment for altitude changes, the system also permits easy hands off warm up and idle speed control.

Like the systems in use on the Ninja® 650R and Vulcan 900 motorcycles, the Classic LT’s fuel injection uses one sensor in place of the usual three, for less complexity and weight. The system offers a natural throttle feel, because the APS is activated by a throttle body pulley that’s connected by cables to the throttle grip. Both units feed data to the ECU, which adjusts the throttle plates to tailor intake airflow accordingly. The system utilizes an Accelerator Position Sensor (APS) and a Throttle Position Sensor (TPS).

Working with a powerful ECU and the rest of the fuel injection system, the electronic throttle valve enhances response without detracting from its distinctive V-twin feel delivering ultra-precise intake flow to the engine under nearly any conditions. A fully electronic throttle valve system feeds that big V-twin exactly what it needs. The engine’s long-stroke design, high compression and big displacement produce massive amounts of quick-revving horsepower, all of it delivered with a distinct V-twin character.  The Classic LT V-twin uses a single overhead cam in each cylinder head, rather than a push rod overhead-valve arrangement, to boost efficiency and provide quick acceleration and superior passing performance.

Kawasaki Vulcan 1700 Classic LT 2011

It offers adjustable height and delivers serious wind protection for the rider and passenger. A large, optically correct, acrylic windshield rounds out the additional 1700 Classic LT features. Detailed with chrome plated brass studs to match the bags, the classically styled seat and backrest blend attractive visual appeal with practical comfort.

Comfortable rider and passenger seats are a must on a cruiser able to tackle anything from daily commuting to day trips with a partner, and the Classic LT’s got them, along with a classic-style backrest to keep the passenger relaxed and smiling as the miles tick by. Rolled and riveted lid tops along with metal reinforced upper edges maintain the bags’ shape and help keep unwanted moisture away from your cargo.

These ideally sized bags feature a slant top opening held shut by two 1.5-inch wide leather straps, fitted with chrome buckles and concealed quick-release fasteners. A pair of top-grain, reinforced cowhide saddlebags are at the core of the Classic LT’s touring package, with leather carefully selected to minimize flaws and deep dyed to help protect its finish from minor scrapes. Let’s just say the Vulcan® 1700 Classic is built with two-up cruising in mind, with just the right mix of features – a large windscreen, leather saddlebags and a passenger backrest – to make any road trip an offer your significant other just won’t want to refuse, no matter who’s in control. Or vice versa?  Behind every good man there’s a strong woman.

Munich. Recent years have seen radical changes in the world of individual mobility, specifically in the conurbations, and the number of registrations has rocketed for virtually all individual transport concepts. However, the space available to traffic has not grown to the same extent, so individual mobility must come to terms with the new circumstances.
