      Nah! I don't think so, it's still the twin tube diamond, but I guess due to the refreshed paint scheme you've got confused.

      And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.

        It is some sort of perimeter/beam frame, for sure, since it goes around the engine compartment. But Honda calls it "twin tube diamond".

          No it's basically a diamond tube, but with enclosed perimeter surrounding the engine, so it can be called a perimeter, but still it's a diamond and same goes for the CBR 250R

            Insane Video of a Bikejacking at Gunpoint in Brazil

            Seems that some people would go to any length to get what they want these days!

            From A&R

            "Honda CB600F Hornet, this Brazilian motorcyclist gets a surprise as he merges into a new lane, a pair of hijackers pull-up next to him on another bike, grab his handlebars, and demand to have his motorcycle at gunpoint.

            Offering no contest to the bikejackers and their desire for his motorcycle, the rest is all a bit shocking as it unfolds in the middle of the busy intersection. Catching everything with a helmet-mounted camera, we imagine this footage will end up as evidence in a Brazilian court, as an off-duty police officer jumps out of his car and fires two shots at one of the robbers.


            Dropping to the ground after being shot, the thief’s partner takes off on the getaway motorcycle. Police cars then arrive to sort out the situation, and deal with the assailant. From what we understand, he survived his injuries. Nevertheless, what follows below may disturb some readers. In other news, who steals a motorcycle wearing sandals???"

              Thank for the undercover cop, else it would have been a lot worse. Bike vandalism will be prominent as long as there are bikes, and wannabe thugs.

              • Skully demonstrates GPS, rear-view camera in motorcycle helmet

                Using GPS on a motorcycle usually involves looking down at a portable navigation device on the handlebars, but Skully Helmets wants to update that experience. The company developed the Skully P1 motorcycle helmet, which gives riders a heads-up display and integrates not only GPS, but a rear-view camera, hands-free phone system, and voice command.
                According to Skully's press materials, the display is not in the rider's primary field of vision, and appears as if it were floating 6 meters ahead.
                The helmet runs a modified version of the Android operating system, which comes loaded with navigation and Bluetooth connectivity. With the helmet paired to a smartphone through Bluetooth, the rider can use voice command to make phone calls and start music playback.
                The heads-up display can also show the image from an integrated rear-view camera. Skully notes that this camera has a 180 degree field of vision, so the rider can also see when it is safe to change lanes.
                Skully will show off the P1 helmet this week at the Demo 2013 conference in Santa Clara, Calif. The company did not say when the helmet would become available, or list a retail price.

                    Spied: Triumph Entry-Level Street Bike Caught Testing




                    No, that isn’t a Street Triple. Look closely and you’ll see that’s a single-cylinder motor, likely 250cc in capacity. This is the new Triumph entry-level street bike.
                    Photos By: Chris Doane Automotive LLC
                    A basic, steel tube frame holds the liquid-cooled motor, connected to a basic, box-section swingarm. Up front, those bug-eye headlights — the same as the 2013 Triumph Street Triple — provide a familial connection that’s also provided in the large exhaust canister.
                    The rest is a much more generic, budget bike. A bulbous tank and plastic radiator shrouds lack any defined shape, as does the large seat unit. This will be a practical motorcycle — a one-piece seat creates adequate room for rider and passenger, while the latter also benefits from prominent grab rails.

                    Running gear is very basic. Thin, RWU forks hold a single brake disc and two-piston, sliding caliper. Tires appear to be the same IRC Road Winner bias ply items fitted to the Suzuki GW250, Honda CBR250R and Kawasaki Ninja 300. Those three bikes will be the Triumph’s main rival in the U.S. and in Europe, but it will also target developing markets in Southeast Asia and South America.
                    It’s likely that the majority of the bike’s parts will be manufactured in Triumph existing factory in Thailand, then assembled in its new facility located in Chennai, India. This arrangement helps avoid import tariffs in both countries, which are both massive motorcycle markets.
                    It’s been rumored that this bike could form a platform for multiple models, some as large as 350cc and form the lynchpin of Triumph’s efforts to it’s expand global sales volume to 250,000 units annually by 2016. The move will make it over twice the size of BMW, dwarfing Ducati and its current 44,000 annual unit volume. Both those companies are pursuing similar expansion in developing markets, just not as quickly as Triumph seems to be.
                    Stay tuned to RideApart for more on this story in the coming weeks and months.

                        Officially Official: Ducati 1199 Superleggera

                        Ducati has finally released photos and information about the 2014 Ducati 1199 Superleggera — the company’s “super light” limited edition superbike. A halo bike for Borgo Panigale, the new Superleggera slots into Ducati’s lineup above the homologation-purposed Ducati 1199 Panigale R.

                        Only 500 Ducatisti worldwide will have the chance to own a Ducati 1199 Superleggera, and that ownership will mean having a superbike with a dry weight of only 155kg (341.7lbs) — 177kg (390.2lb) at the curb with at least a tank that is 90% full. Ducati officially rates the power at “over 200hp” as the Superleggera revs an extra 500 rpm’s off its modified motor.
                        To make these weight savings, Ducati has used a good portion of the periodic table to find the lightest components possible. As such, the Superleggera features a magnesium monocoque frame and forged Marchesini magnesium wheels, a carbon fiber rear sub-frame and bodywork (with integrated R-spec aero-kit), a lithium-ion battery, a full titanium exhaust system with stainless steel headers, and many of the bolts and fasteners on both engine and chassis are also made from titanium.

                              Currently there are two models in the series, the 660cc single-cylinder MT-03 and the recently-launched MT-09, an 847cc triple. Until 2010 there was also the MT-01, a 1670cc V-twin.

                              What the next MT could be is unclear but an MT-07 is not unlikely. Yamaha trademarked the names 'MT-09' and 'MT-07' at the same time.

                              One possibility is it will have a 675cc triple engine which Yamaha is believed to be developing. The other perhaps more likely possibility is it will use the new parallel twin 'crossplane' engine shown in Japan earlier this year. There's no word yet on the capacity of that engine, but it’s probably around the 500-700cc mark.

                              The video itself is even less informative, showing us a musical box made from motorcycle parts with a rotating rider in black leather and, oddly, tights, like a kind of S&M Stig.

                              Yamaha’s message says: ‘Just over the horizon there's a new kind of 2-wheeled animal heading this way. It's provocative. It's naked. And it's agile.

                              ‘The Dark Side of Japan is about to deliver another rude awakening to the streets of Europe.

                              ‘And resistance to this unstoppable force is impossible.

                              ‘Now, more than ever, sleeping bikers have a reason to rise up and ride.’

                              The new model will be unveiled on November 4 at Milan’s EICMA bike show .

                                Triumph Confirms 250cc Motorcycle is Coming for 2015



                                At Triumph’s EICMA press presentation today, the British brand confirmed that it would have a small-displacement world market bike for the 2015 model year.
                                Showing a very sporty concept sketch of the machine, Triumph also confirmed that the model would have a single-cylinder engine, be 250cc in displacement, and be manufactured at the company’s new India facility.
                                The news confirms one of the worst-kept secrets in the industry, and puts Triumph in line with a slew of other brands (Honda, Kawasaki, & KTM to name a few) who are realizing that they need to adapt their model lineup to meet the global demand for motorcycles.
                                With Triumph recently investing in its manufacturing ability in Brazil and India, the new model will be the first motorcycle built with emerging markets in mind.
                                No word yet whether the machine will make it into European or American markets, but the idea of a 250cc thumper that looks like a Daytona is certainly appealing to our ears. 2015 can’t come soon enough.
