“The active position is the capital agency for the all-embracing aerodynamic ability of the rider-bike amalgamation – said Rainer Baumel, Abstruse Director, Team BMW Motorrad Motorsport – The locations of the arch and high body, elbows, knees and feet, can accept astronomic access on the resistance, and appropriately on lap times. Of course, there is a breadth that is ideal for all drivers, because aggregate depends on any factors and several singles, starting with the aforementioned acme and stature. The accelerated assignment in the wind adit with Troy and Leon led the pilots themselves to ascertain their best position. At the aforementioned time, we are aggravating to beforehand the aerodynamic ability of the bike as abundant as attainable aural the austere abstruse standards. – continues Baumel – This is why we evaluated assorted shapes and positions of the fairing. We calm a lot of important abstracts that will advice us with the bike accoutrement for abutting test. “ Troy Leon and of beforehand are continuing with their accurate activity for the attainable season.

2011 BMW HP2 Sport

For ambitious sports riders, the BMW HP2 Sport is the non plus ultra: consistent lightweight construction, excusive details and top-class materials give it truly unique quality. The self-supporting front and rear sections in carbon, even lighter forged wheels and filigree components reduce the dry weight to an impressive 178 kg. Exclusive motor racing features to be found in serial production for the first time such as the shift assistant which allows shifting without accelerator release and clutch disengagement, and the DOHC cylinder head with its four radially arranged valves. A maximum engine speed of 9500 rpm provides pure Grand Prix feeling! Speed fans can enjoy complete banking freedom since the aerodynamic high-quality steel exhaust system has been moved under the engine and seat and ends in an attractive rear silencer in the single-section rear. The large-volume silencer provides an inimitable “Boxer” sound - an acoustic thrill for racers. The 2D GP dashboard derived from Moto-GP racing provides all information to the cockpit. The chassis, ergonomics and vehicle geometry are individually adjustable, guaranteeing excellent handling. This orientation to the rider’s personality is highlighted by the use of carbon: due the consistency of this material the trim is made almost entirely by hand, making every BMW HP2 Sport a unique specimen.

BMW K1300S

Despite the sportiest silhouette of the bunch, the big K is all BMW, as in one unrepentant 147-horse sporty tourer aimed directly at open-class Japanese hypersports that don’t offer optional saddlebags. Throw a leg over and you’re sitting in the S more than on it. Legroom is something less than first-class, but taller types will still be happier here than shorter ones, who’ll find the bars a long way off. Vibration is minimal in sixth gear within 15 mph of any posted freeway limit. Scrolling through the trip computer to keep tabs on tire pressure, average mpg, projected fuel range, ambient air temperature and such is amusing, but the optimistic data provides only a vague idea of what’s actually going on. Held to an unwavering 70 mph, the S is capable of putting 200 miles between fill-ups if you don’t mind the stress of rolling into a gas station on fumes. For the most part, it makes an eminently civilized traveling companion whether you’re on the road for three hours or three days. BMW’s second-generation electronically adjustable suspension goes from plush to firm to genuinely taut on the fly with a touch of the button on the left bar. Another on the right toggles the two-position heated hand grips. Wind protection is luxurious by supersport standards, but noticeably skimpy compared to the Kawasaki Concours 14’s adjustable screen.
Cue up 20 miles of smooth, flowing coastal corners and the K1300S arcs through one 70-mph apex after another like a terrain-following missile. Contrary to sporting folklore, the Duolever front end does tell you what’s going on at the front contact patch once you learn to stop worrying and trust it. Ease into the throttle below 4000 rpm and the 1300 reels in the next straight with a steady stream of reassuringly linear thrust. Loaf along in second or third if you like, secure in the knowledge that nearly 70 percent of the engine’s peak torque is available at just 3000 rpm. It doesn’t gain revs as enthusiastically as the Honda’s V4. Full afterburner mode kicks in just beyond 6000 rpm, and by 8000 it’s pulling hard. Enough to provoke involuntary contractions in that ring of smooth muscle tissue you’re sitting on, reel off mid-10-second quarter-miles at 130-plus mph and reel in that next apex quicker than you can say Semi-Integral ABS II. That eyeball-flattening immediacy makes it feel like the quickest of the bunch, even though it isn’t ... quite.Meanwhile, a firm squeeze on the lever cues all three discs, hauling things down immediately with more power than feel, but no drama. The foot pedal controls only the rear brake, taking the pucker out of occasional decreasing-radius moments more readily than systems that insist on factoring in some degree of front brake as well. Still, the Duolever/Paralever combination maintains equilibrium between front and rear. Cornering clearance abounds, as does the reassuringly tenacious grip from those Metzeler radials. Not much to complain about. Not yet anyway...When the corners come closer together and the pavement starts to unravel, so does most of the big K-bike’s otherwise unflappable Germanic composure. Automatic Stability Control (read: traction control) keeps you from writing a check with the throttle that the 180/55-17 rear tire can’t cash. Even so, once you’ve arrived in the land of blind rises and lumpy 15-mph corners, pulling the trigger near 9000 rpm feels like hunting ground squirrels with that terrain-following missile. Despite the diligent efforts of two balance shafts, it’s buzzy up there as well. Gear shifts are clunky, too. We didn’t recall that being an issue until we remembered that the last K1300S we tested had the optional electronic quick-shifter ($450).

All New 2011 Beauty “Ducati Diavel”

“The challenge of building a muscular silhouette over a pure-bred competition motor had to be met with determination and a delicate touch, and the result is a frontal area that looks like a power athlete on the starting blocks,” explains the team at Ducati Design responsible for the project"

The stance of the Diavel is that of readiness, dominance, and confidence bordering on superiority. With lateral radiators adding muscle to its broad “shoulders,” which then taper down across the engine and into the belly-fairing with oil cooler, the athlete took shape.

A massive 240 section rear tyre was a perfect example of how Diavel designers used a no-compromise attitude when applying their wish list of features. Ducati’s philosophy for innovation has always been to push the boundaries of design in the name of exciting motorcycles.

Eco Factor: Zero-emission motorcycle propelled by electricity.
Auto designer Andre Federico Look believes that racing is a significant medium in communication new technology and motorsports has the chance to demonstrate new technical and creative solutions within the framework of competition. To prove his belief, Andrea has come up with a concept electric motorcycle that can rival any conventionally-powered machine on the racetrack.

Christened the AER, the motorcycle features an asymmetrical chassis which takes care of maintenance and service in the pit lane. The motorcycle is propelled four electric engines that collectively generate a whooping 143.5KW of raw power. To evenly distribute weight, the four electric engines and their battery packs are centered as compact as possible.

The “framerings” enclose the package of the motors and the batteries by assembling them to an engine block. Beyond that, the rims and other highly stressed components require to influence the bikes handling in a positive way. The tires, wheel flashings, and the rims are combined to a self-contained system. The rims are laid out to fit the needs of a sensitive tire temperature management. Especially, at the end of a race, the tires are worn – by ensuring a more constant temperature over the laps it would be possible to finish the competition without fighting against the specific tire problems.

By assembling one smaller electric engine in the front wheel it is possible to recuperate a big amount of braking energy by only one system. The engine/generator system weighs about 4.5kg which is insignificant in comparison to a typical braking system. This motor supports in reference to acceleration and helps to reduce the stress for the rear wheel tire.

The designer has figured out two possible battery technologies, which use oxygen in the air for energy generation. The battery packs might either use lithium-air technology or zinc-air technology. This upcoming technology provides up to ten times the energy density of conventional lithium-ion battery.
