a word from the boss

Well done Australia, you are doing a great job of looking out for each other. It won’t be long before we have this virus beaten.

bmw introduces r 18

Following two concepts and a lot of anticipation, BMW’s R 18 cruiser has finally been revealed. While not BMW’s first cruising motorcycle (remember the R1200 C?), the R 18 represents a new approach to the cruising category. With its low, sleek and unashamedly retro styling, the R 18 is aimed more directly at similar cruisers from Harley-Davidson and Indian, while the large-capacity boxer twin will give most traditional cruisers a run for their money in the power and torque stakes, too. CLASSIC STYLE While the R 18 takes obvious inspiration from BMW history, it’s perhaps surprising to learn that the modern R nineT was also influential, but not in the way you may think. BMW Motorrad’s Roland Stocker, one of the design team on the R 18, explained that the success of the…

indian presents ftr carbon

Indian’s flat track-inspired street bike, the FTR 1200, will soon be available in ‘FTR Carbon’ form. Unveiled at the start of May, the FTR Carbon is based on the higher-specification FTR 1200 S and features the same tech and rider-assistance features. Appearance is in the style of the FTR 1200 S Race Replica, but the FTR Carbon takes that look and enhances it with an abundance of carbon fibre. Genuine carbon fibre has been used for the front mudguard, headlight nacelle, airbox and fuel tank covers, with identifying ‘Carbon’ badging on the fuel tank console. A pillion seat cowl has been added in carbon fibre, too. The use of carbon fibre shaves 3kg off the dry weight compared to the FTR 1200 S – 225kg vs 228kg – while the seat height is raised…

last shipment of royal enfield bullet trials se arrives

If you fancy having one of the Royal Enfield’s ‘Bullet Trials 500 Works Replica’ special editions in your garage, now’s your last chance. After making its local debut at last year’s Australian Motorcycle Festival in Wollongong, the final shipment of Bullet Trials 500 Works Replicas reached Royal Enfield dealerships in April. Paying homage to the success of the Royal Enfield Factory Team at the International Six Day Trials in the 1950s, the Bullet Trials 500 Works Replica features a choice of red or green frames (matched to a silver and chrome fuel tank, respectively), with the ‘48’ on the nearside battery cover referencing the introduction year - 1948 - of Royal Enfield’s swingarm rear end. Other features include slimmer mudguards, block-tread tyres, a reinforced rear subframe with a carry rack, upswept exhaust design,…

ural announces 2020 range

Ural Australia have released details on their sidecar outfit range for 2020. The familiar and popular CT and Ranger models carry over largely unchanged following major mechanical updates, including the adoption of fuel injection, made for 2019. Across the board, changes for 2020 are mostly cosmetic, including new high gloss and semi-gloss paint finishes. There are some new model variants, though, including the Adventure, Sahara Special Edition and the ‘FRWL’ (From Russia With Love) Limited Edition. New for 2020, the Adventure is based on the Ranger, but adds a bunch of optional extras, bundled together as a package. The Adventure package starts with an adjustable touring windscreen, sidecar windscreen, H4 LED headlamp bulb upgrade and headlight stone guard. Hand guards and leg mud guards for the rider have been included, while the…

norton sold to tvs

Norton looks like it will go the way of being revived and reinvented under Indian ownership following the sale of the brand to TVS Motor Company Ltd in April. Whether this will save the brand that went into receivership in January with more than £14 million (AU$2M approx.) in debts is yet to be confirmed but early indications are that TVS are committed to the future of the brand and will continue some or all of the models in Norton’s existing product lineup. Announced on 17 April, the deal saw Norton Motorcycle Holdings Limited and Norton Motorcycles (UK) Limited sold for £16 million cash (AU$32M approx.) to a subsidiary company of TVS Motor Company. As well as Norton Motorcycle assets, TVS Motor Company have a licence to occupy the current production facilities at…
