BMW S1000RR tagged at $13,800 in The States

Yup. BMW has kept their promise that the new S1000RR will be priced slightly 10% higher that the Japs liter bike. They have set the price for the bike which would be available in December at USD $13,800, which is pretty competitive and might just win some sale from the other Japs.

Calculating from the Form 3 Math syllabus, ratio, a USD $ 11,799.00 bike is selling at RM 84,900 here in Malaysia. So, USD $ 13,800 would make the BMW S1000RR to be sold for RM 99,298! Pretty amazing huh! Considering the fact that AutoBavaria hold the same AP permit as the Kwaks. Hehe... AutoBavaria guys should have good laugh reading my post here. Oh well... Make them 2 years unlimited mileage warranty, you might steal a lot of sales out there... but the damn service bill have to be revised.

Don't worry... this one is out of my reach. I'm not on the BMW buyers list.

2010 Kawasaki ZX14

We usually get those new bike pics on September. But I can't help noticing this photoshop image which the artist rendered it almost so well.

Notice the "SUPERCHARGED". Don't think it will be there. Artist makes great touch up on the ZX6R exhaust with the 10R ends. Fairing from the 1400GTR and signal cover from the ER6nf. Nice!

The real news is, the new ZX14 for 2010 is rumored to have new chasis, engine and some more little bit tuning up to compete with the Bird of course. I guess you can spot on that the power delivery must be more than 200bhp we're talking about here. I'm more interested on knowing what's the Kawa is doing on their ZX10R.

299km/h Limits On The Speedometer

I just realize this... if our speedo limits reading to 299km/h. Have anyone try changing it to MPH so it could read more than 186mp/h? Think you can clock 200mp/h on your liter bike? Out of the blue I was thinking heading to Highway 44 and gave it a try.

Awesome Leathers!

Uh..uh.. I trade in my Dainese for this in a flash! Universal Designs are developing an exact replica of Batman's Batsuit that are actually design for the motorcycle riders.

It's an official license product with features :
- Strong Cordura Mesh Base with Heavy-duty 4 way stretch Spandex inserts.
- Removable CE Approved Body Armor in both Jacket and Pants
- Highly detailed, removable lightweight interior lining.
- Form Molded Leather and Kevlar Armor Sectons.
- Made from Quality Tanned Cow Hides

Jacket, pants, boots, gloves are all there. I gotta to be little bit greedy here.. I want the Batman mask as well. Hehehe...
