Early Release 2016 Suzuki's

- 999cc long-stroke inline-four builds massive torque for street-going power
- Three mode tarcktion controll** gives confidence in varied conditions
- Aggressive style, plus Brembo monobloc brakes, Renthal Fatbars, and more (ABS* available)


2016 GSX-S1000

Born on the racetrack and raised on the street, the 2016 GSX-S1000 is derived from the legendary, championship-winning 2005-2008 gen GSX-R1000. The new GSX-S lineup carries the spirit of the Suzuki GSX-R to the street, with shared technology and components packaged into a chassis designed specifically for street riding comfort.
It’s more than just an attitude, a spirit, or a lineage though; it’s about performance-packed hard parts evolving from one generation to the next. The GSX-S1000 is powered by a 999cc inline four-cylinder powerplant that’s based on the long-stroke GSX-R1000 engine, which makes for ideal street-riding power and torque curve. Focused on making big power through the low and mid-range, this engine also uses cams optimized to deliver street-dominating power.
Equipped with a powerful engine, Suzuki’s Advanced Traction Control System*, and Brembo brakes, the 2016 GSX-S1000 is a street bike packed with some serious performance. Top that performance off with wild, rugged, and aggressive styling, and you have a naked roadster ready to attack and turn heads on the street.
With the GSX-S1000, Suzuki changes motorcycling for the better, again.
*The Traction Control System is not a substitute for the rider’s throttle control. It cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when the rider enters a turn and/or applies the brakes. Neither can it prevent the front wheel from losing grip.

*Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please drive carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.

MBSR 2015 - We Survived

What happens when you take a dedicated team of volunteers, task them with facilitating a one of a kind scooter rally, welcome a motley crew of about 75 willing participants, and send them on some of the best roads in Ontario for a wild and crazy 24 hour adventure on two wheels?

You get the most successful Mad Bastard Scooter Rally EVER - and it's all thanks to every single one of our volunteers, participants, sponsors, supporters and hosts!
Here's what you missed, if you missed it:
The 2015 Mad Bastard Scooter Rally brought riders to Guelph, Ontario as their Headquarters for their weekend of madness. With an almost even mix of new bastards vs. old, the inaugural tailgate style party was the perfect atmosphere for hanging out, scoping out the competition, final costume details, and last minute fixes to scooters. It was a spectacle, to say the least. From American Minions and Ferries, to local Animals, Knights & Maidens, and Crash Test Dummies - anyone walking by the Delta Guelph Hotel & Conference Centre got an eye full, to say the least!
Late Friday night the top secret route for the 2015 rally was revealed to participants. It was challenging, but hey, this is the Mad Bastard Scooter Rally we're talking about! A 639km route heavy in complex navigation, taking riders through both rural and urban landscapes, up and down the escarpment, a trek for even the most experienced of Bastards - and so much fun!



Riders left Guelph in the early and dark hours of Saturday morning making their way through the urban jungle of Hamilton before they encountered the Niagara Region. They continued to follow the lake as they headed toward Ontario's SouthWest, with stops in Port Dover as well as Turkey Point (the farthest point in the rally). The route back home would take them through scenic Caledonia, up through Brantford and back into Guelph, but not before routing them to a roadside clue and mandatory gas stop in the Tri-City area.


How did everyone do? Here are the stats if you're interested:
Of 75 riders registered for the rally:
- 6 DNS (Did Not Start)
- 7 DNF (Did Not Finish)
- 31 DNQ (Did Not Qualify to win)
- 30 SURVIVED
- 4 attempted the bonus route
Of those 75 riders, these were deemed the Maddest Bastards:
Day Release Class (201cc +):
Rider #069 - John S.
Therapy Required Class (111cc - 200cc):
Rider #043 - Richard D.
Heavily Medicated (51cc - 110cc):
Rider #035 - Kevin B.
2 UP too Crazy (rider + passenger):
Rider #050 - William & Shawna V.
Team Prize:
Intergalactic Psychopathics
Rider #001 - Todd M.
Rider #009 - Jim L.
Rider #010 - Jorge R.
In the end, the winner was crowned.

Congratulations
Rider #001 - Todd M.
for being the Maddest Bastard of 2015
earning the title for the 2nd rally in a row.


$16,571 RAISED FOR CHARITY!

Thanks to the fundraising efforts of our participants, the Mad Bastard Scooter Rally was able to raise over $16,000 for our local charity Big Brothers Big Sister of Guelph. A special thank you to Michael Treadgold of BBBS and the Big & Little who attended our Tailgate Party & Rider Meeting on Friday.

CXCC West Round 1 & 2 - Monkey Wrench - Lytton, BC

The West Coast Dirt Riders Club once again pulled out all the stops to put on another spectacular 2 day event in the mountains outside Lytton, BC.   The scenery is always great and thanks to the efforts of the club and all their volunteers so was the course.


Day one saw Honda's Jason Schrage take top of the Pro Podium with Tyler Murray in 2nd and Husqvarna's Ryan Graffunder in Third.

Leave it to the West Coast Dirt Riders to come up with some very creative obstacle sections - the swinging tire pit was within easy walking distance of the pits for the spectators to enjoy.

Another great section used every year is the roller coaster section.  Pray it doesnt rain when coming through here.

On Day 2 Honda's Jason Schrage battled with Husky's Ryan Graffunder and was behind by 2 minutes - Ryan ended up having to do a 3rd lap which took over an hour at his pace.  Jason got second ahead of Blake Watkinson both of whom were relaxed in the pits when Ryan got back in.

Laminacorr Racing's Ride Like a Girl Program paid out some cash to the Women's class on both days.

Full Results and points standings will be available on our site  www.worldendurocanada.com

Ducati achieves its 800th Superbike podium!

Thanks to a brilliant performance, Chaz Davies riding his Panigale R on the Misano World Circuit, has achieved the 800th Ducati podium in the Superbike World Championship!

From the beginning in the championship in 1988, Ducati Superbikes have always been distinguished for their excellent results, so that there is no year in the history of the SBK championship during which a Ducati did not reach the podium in at least one of the season’s races.


800 podiums is an exceptional milestone, demonstrating the continued commitment that Ducati dedicates to the development of its Superbikes, protagonists on tracks around the world for the past 27 years.

The dream continues. #ForzaDucati

Victory Motorcycles Project 156 hits highs and lows at Pikes Peak

Project 156 was on an aggressive pace for a podium finish, but crashes in the second section and DNF’s at 93rd annual Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
· Project 156 qualified fourth overall out of 60 entries and top of class
· Don Canet posted the second fastest time of the day in section one
· Don Canet crashed in section two of the course but remounted the bike
· Project 156 had to pull over in the fourth and final section while leading the Exhibition Class to an unfortunate DNF.
 
 Victory Racing experienced some highs and lows with racing this weekend after Project 156, ridden by Cycle World Editor Don Canet, crashed in the second section of the mountain course and stopped running less than 2 miles from the summit of the Pikes Peak’s finish line following an aggressive starting pace that proved the potential of the prototype engine.
Canet had qualified first in the Exhibition Class a few days before the race and was buoyed by qualifying fourth overall. Early on in the race, Don was posting speeds on Project 156 that were putting him in the running for an overall podium finish until he touched the slippery white paint in section two’s Brown Bush corner, one of the tightest corners out of the 156 turns, resulting in a minor lowside that would cause issues later in the run.
Don was rolling again in 23 seconds and resumed his fast pace. In the third section he was back on race pace posting the fifth fastest split time overall. Alas, it was not meant to be and he had to retire in the fourth and final section of the course around 13,000ft elevation. After such a promising start following practice and qualifying, the Victory Racing team began to set its sights on not just winning their class, but taking the overall lowest time in the motorcycle category.
Canet said: “I was off to a strong start and competitive with the fastest bikes on the mountain. My disappointment is more for the team and how much work they put into Project 156 from the very beginning. The bike was working really well today despite being a prototype and being rebuilt after the practice crash a few weeks ago. To go fast here you have to ride outside the paint lines and I got caught out crossing over one. I never let go of the handlebars and got right back up again but unfortunately the bike stopped running in the last section. Overall, I’m really proud of the team’s effort.”
Victory Motorcycles General Manager Rod Krois said: “The Victory team didn’t shy away from the challenge of racing Pikes Peak. Racing is the ultimate test for any machine and on the back of a podium at the Isle of Man TT a few weeks ago we were hoping for a strong result with Project 156 as well. We know that Don and the team were pushing hard to take a position on the overall podium and we absolutely support their commitment to racing as hard as possible at Pikes Peak this year.”
“We committed to racing a prototype Victory engine in one of the toughest ways possible, and we succeeded in showing how strong an engineering team we have at Victory Motorcycles to develop a competitive motor in such a short time,” said Polaris Motorcycles Product Director Gary Gray. “We may not have ended up with the result we all wanted today – but I can say that the Project 156 represents the two things that Victory stands for – performance and exhilaration. We got the bike back down to the pits after the race, and were able to fire it up. It looks like the crash may have resulted in an electrical issue that ended this run for Project 156. The team is investigating to find the specific issue, and we want to bring Project 156 back to the race again.”
Project 156 is sponsored by Victory Motorcycles, Roland Sands Design, Faulkner-Livingston Racing, AF1 Racing, MoTec, Dunlop Tires, Öhlins Suspension, Carillo Rods, Speedcell, GoPro Cameras, K&N Filters, Del West, IWIS, Spider Grips, Aeromotive, and Millennium Technologies. The team also wishes to extend a sincere thank you to Tom Osborne, the PPIHC staff and all of the safety personnel involved as well as the hundreds of Victory Motorcycle fans who attended the event and enjoyed a VIP viewing area.
Victory Motorcycles has been flexing their muscles, not only with an entry in the Isle of Man TT, but also with professional drag racing, stunt teams and this entry in the iconic Pikes Peak Hill Climb with a prototype and custom race machine built by Victory Racing and Roland Sands Design.

Episode 12 of Motorcycle Experience on TSN!

The 2015 Bike of the Year revealed!

You know, since this is our 26th season of Motorcycle Experience, I figure we’ve sampled some three hundred and thirty-five brand new motorcycles over the years. Everything from cruisers, standards and tourers to adventure tourers, sport bikes, naked bikes, and scooters. As you know, every season we invite viewers and fans of the show to spend twelve weeks riding and sampling the very latest and greatest motorcycles on offer from our friends in the motorcycle industry. And this year has been no different. Case in point: recently we sampled the very latest in hard chrome cruisers fresh off the Project Rushmore drawing board from the folks at Harley-Davidson. The latest big displacement adventure touring tool from Yamaha, the Super Ténéré also drew high praise. We then sampled a couple of the very latest six cylinder touring platform motorcycles from the Honda menu while a pair of very cool all new, all ‘rounder middle weights from both Yamaha and Honda turned heads along with a couple of all new small displacement sportbikes earning a very big round of applause. And speaking of sportbikes, big displacement, high performance sports machines also took centre stage this year - with Honda’s fully amalgamated, super rare CBR 1000RR SP, and BMW Motorrad’s naked roadster, the S1000R put smiles on our collective faces and drew standing ovations. Heck, I’d even throw Harley’s prototype all electric into the mix if it were not for the fact that a motorcycle has to be available for purchase in order to qualify for our bike of the year honours. All in all, at the risk of sounding like I’m bragging, it was a really great year to be a motorcycle journalist. So out of all the bikes we sampled this season, which one was worthy enough to win our coveted bike of the year? Well tune in to find out who takes home the prize as the winner of our 2015 Motorcycle Experience Bike of the Year!


Also this week OPP Constable Anthony Mann proves that practice does indeed make perfect. While on this season’s Ultimate Ride Norm Wells and I discuss our next Ultimate destination. Then, during our “Winging It” segment Ken Edick discusses why he rides while during “Shifting Gears,” I throw a leg over Harley Davidson’s all electric Livewire.


Keep your right hand cranked!

Dave

Third place for Victory Racing in its first ever TT Zero race

Third place for Victory Racing in its first ever TT Zero race

·        Lee Johnston rides a 111.62mph lap to his second TT podium

·        Fourth for Guy Martin on a 109.717mph lap, just shy of the 110mph mark

·        “It’s a proper fast bike, the Victory boys were spot on,” says Guy.

Isle of Man: Victory Racing is celebrating its first ever TT podium after Lee Johnston rode a 111.620mph lap in the SES TT Zero race to take third place.

Lee had ridden increasingly fast laps on successive practices throughout the week as he became more familiar with the intricacies of riding the electric motorcycle – including energy management and regeneration – and he rode his fastest lap to date just when it mattered most.

Lee said in the winner’s enclosure: “Yeah, awesome to be back on the podium again. Every time we go out, we’re getting faster. Think we had a little bit of battery left, so maybe could have went a bit quicker. Fair play to the Mugen boys, but at the end of the day they have been coming here for three years and in their first year they did nowhere near 110mph, so credit to the whole Victory team, it’s an absolutely awesome job. The bike’s so fun to ride because it’s so small, I really like riding it.”

Guy Martin, who stepped in to ride the bike on behalf of the injured William Dunlop, placed fourth, an equally sweet victory in some ways, as he had only ridden two practice laps on William’s No.6 machine ahead of the race. He also posted his fastest lap of the week in the race – a 109.717mph, just shy of the 110mph mark.

“It’s a proper fast bike,” he said. “The Victory boys judged it just right to use up all of the battery power as I came over the finish line. I’d need more time to properly get my head around it but I’m happy to have had the opportunity to ride it.”

For a first time at the TT, the team is thrilled that it has been so competitive. Victory Racing Team Manager, Brian Wismann, said: “I’m feeling very, very good. It was good day for Victory Racing on our first ever time at the TT. We accomplished what we set out to accomplish… got on to the podium, but we also got a 111mph average in our first ever TT Zero race. Speeds were good, the bikes were good and reliable, they looked great out there. I’m just very, very pleased with all the hard work the team’s put in and the work that the riders have done to get the bikes round here so quickly.”

Out of the 10 electric bike teams on the Isle of Man, seven of them entered the race. It is also the very first time that five teams have all achieved over 100mph laps under race conditions and is a strong indicator that electric racing technology is being taken seriously by many brands in anticipation of mass-produced consumer vehicles. 


For Gary Gray, Director Motorcycle Product for Victory Motorcycles, the third and fourth place is reward for all the efforts the brand is putting into proving ‘American Performance’. He said: “I couldn't be prouder of the team for putting a bike on the podium the first year out and for building the fastest American electric bike ever at the Isle of Man TT. I promised we would be competitive and beating nine of the 10 teams proves American performance.

 

A podium result has also excited Parker, the makers of the GVM electric motor that propelled the bikes. Parker’sUS-based strategic account manager, Kevin Holloway said: “We are proud of the entire Victory Racing team for the third and fourth place finishes in the TT Zero. Everybody worked so hard and we exceeded our expectations by setting an American lap record today.”

 

Victory Motorcycles has been flexing their muscles in various forms, not only by entering the Isle of Man TT, but also by taking part in professional drag racing, running a stunt team and fielding an entry in the iconic Pikes Peak Hill Climb with a prototype and custom race machine built by Victory Racing and Roland Sands Design, all which will be exhibited at the upcoming American Victory Rally in Denver and Colorado Springs, CO. http://www.victorymotorcycles.com/en-us/event/2015-additional-events-american-victory-rally-june

Adventure Motorcyclist to Race the Pikes Peak on a Stock Ducati Multistrada 1200 S

Jamie Robinson Will Ride the Multistrada More Than 2,000 Miles Round Trip With a Stop in Colorado Springs to Compete in the Epic "Race to the Clouds"
Cupertino, Calif. (June 25, 2015)– Motorcycle adventurer and former British racing champion, Jamie Robinson, has teamed up with Ducati for an extreme demonstration of the 4-bikes-in-1 concept that defines the Multistrada 1200. In just over one week’s time, Robinson has traveled more than 1,000 miles on the new Multistrada – battling the city streets of Los Angeles, relaxing in cruise control across Nevada and taking a few shortcuts through the mountain roads of Utah – all before arriving at the starting line to compete in the 93rd running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb on Sunday, July 28.
  
The Multistrada holds the course record at Pikes Peak and has taken the top spot on the podium multiple times. Now, Robinson will put versatility of a virtually untouched Multistrada to the test and showcase how well rounded the bike truly is.
“I’ve raced all over the world on all types of motor bikes and the Multistrada is one of the fastest, comfortable and most capable motorcycles I’ve ever ridden,” said Robinson. “We thought that taking a Multistrada right out of the showroom, riding it all the way from Los Angeles to race in Pikes Peak and then riding back home, would be a great way to show the world what the bike can do!”

Oscar by Alpinestars Comissions Ornamental Conifer for Mega Art Giveaway

To celebrate the launch of the 2015 Oscar by Alpinestars line, Alpinestars has tapped the typographical wizardry of brush master Ornamental Conifer. The colorful ambassador and communicator of motorcycle culture was commissioned to create a one-of-a-kind, hand painted jacket, a hand painted poster and a print edition of two hundred pieces, all of which will be offered in a substantial giveaway.
Renowned for his subversive whimsy and moto-inspired wit, Ornamental Conifer conjured the tongue in cheek yet poignant : “FREEDOM EARNED FROM THROTTLES TURNED” phrase which he’s emblazoned across the back of a brand new Oscar Monty jacket as well as a 18" x 24" painting. Additionally, a series of two hundred 18" x 24 "signed silkscreened prints have been created all of which will be available through a drawingJune 11th – 26th. One lucky winner will take home the jacket, one will be hanging an original Ornamental Conifer on their wall and 200 will be the proud owners of a limited edition, signed print.
 
 
“I’ve always been a fan of the Alpinestars brand. They have such a rich heritage, it’s great to see it being celebrated with the new Oscar line. I’m stoked that I get to be involved!” said the artist of his participation.
As an additional component of the Ornamental Conifer-ized launch of Oscar, Alpinestars also created a short video glimpse into the life and process of the artist. Shot in and around his Venice, CA studio, the four minute video gives insight into a typical day of hard work and hard leisure.
The complete Oscar line is available now, debuting with 4 jacket styles, 1 denim offering and a selection of rugged gloves and boots. Merging a history of innovation and Italian craftsmanship, the Oscar by Alpinestars line exists as a fusion of classic styles and silhouettes, punctuated by technical features and modern processes. Much in the vein of the original Oscar by Alpinestars branded product of the 1970’s, an equal balance of form and function will be meticulously maintained, creating unique, premium garments, guided by the timeless rebel-style essence of motorcycle racing.
