  • Kawasaki Versys 250/300

    2017 Kawasaki Versys-X 300 | First Look Review | Rider Magazine

    News about new Kawasaki 300 machines !

    The wheels are with spokes ; does it mean that it is not tube-less ?

    Dear Mods: Could not locate any thread on Versys 250/300.

          Spy shots leaked of an electric KTM Duke at KTM's Austrian HQ.


          Is KTM experimenting with an electric city bike?


          Note that KTM already produces a couple of electric bikes (the Freeride series) so this is not that crazy or new a concept for them.

              But may I know, why you say that this overspeeding biker (who allegedly went over 290 kmph) was following all rules and safety measures?

              To me, it seems that you wanted to post about that Rc390 case, where the cop rode away with the biker's bike... is that what you're referring to? The link got misposted, is it?

                  I see... no worries. I had understood what the title was referring to.

                  You may post the above mentioned news in the thread I'm linking:- https://www.xbhp.com/talkies/news/28...ead-india.html

She died this week, her BMW wedged into a guard rail when she crashed while working on another video."

                              Casey Stoner blessed with a baby daughter.


                              The li'l one's name is Caleya Maria Stoner,
                              born on 6th of October, 2017 at 1:30 PM.

                              In a Facebook post by Stoner, he says that both mumma and baby are doing great, and the baby weighs "2,605 kgs". Err... Well, I guess he means 2.605 kgs (with a dot, not a comma).
                              So, it seems Casey is sealing his retirement decision, athough we have seen fathers racing before.




                              Casey already has a 4 year old daughter, and even earlier he wasn't quite sure of returning to racing with family responsibilities and all. Those who know Casey best feel like they've seen the best and last of him already, and now its his turn to relax and enjoy family life.

                              However, he has been receiving suggestions about considering his retirement decision, which he acknowledges but so far, nothing concrete has come up.
                              He's a test rider for behind the scenes testing already, and he hasn't lost much speed, so maybe if the 3 ladies can convince him that bikes are awesome at any stage of life, then maybe we'll see number 27 getting back with a bang. Nothing concrete so far though.

                              In any case, let's wish the family all the best for an awesome and happy life!
