Have a Konker? Ride it 'a lot' and win a spare!

Konker Motors, the BC based provider of the KSM 200 street bike is holding a contest whereby owners can win parts cash (individual prizes valued at $200 and a total of $3,200), an accessory package (valued at $1,500), or the top prize - a 2009 KSM 200 street bike.

If you don't already own a Konker - you can still get in on the contest. Non-owners can tell Konker who they think will win the race, have the most miles, and estimate the number of kilometers they ride; then they pick up $200 in Konker Parts Cash.

Maybe they can sell it at a discount to the people who actually own a Konker to put the parts on?

For more news and background on Konker and their Super Moto check out our Konker category HERE.

A few highlight pictures - Atlantic Motorcycle & ATV Show

If the crowds of people in attendance are a measure of success then it appears the Atlantic Motorcycle & ATV Show was a BIG success. The exhibitor spots were sold out and the place was packed wall to wall with all the most exciting motorcycles on the Canadian market.

All the big manufacturers were there, and even plenty of the smaller ones, and some you've probably never heard of too.

*Click the image for a larger version.

The RC8 from KTM. It's hard to believe but it looks even better in person than it does in pictures. If you ride this on the street you're going to get tickets and people are going to be following you around to talk to you when you stop. It looks amazing!

The new rocket ship fast, buttery smooth K1300GT from BMW. This model features the Japanese style signal switches which are located on the left. No more right handed right turn signal.

An Ad Bovin equipped BMW 450 Enduro. This might be just the ticket to extend the riding season here in the Great White North.

Because the 1098S just wasn't good enough Ducati brings us the larger displacement 1198S. Better sign up for some track days if you're getting one of these!

The 2009 ZX6R that went on a big diet and lost an incredible 20lbs. And oh yeah, about 8 more horsepower too.

Get ready to see plenty of these on the roads and trails near you this summer. The new, long awaited, BMW F800GS is here.

The new Suzuki Gladius. It'a mid-sized naked featuring the ever popular SV650 v-twin engine. New for 2009.

The KSM200 is Konker Motor's (a Langley BC based company) first street legal motorcycle. Featuring a 200cc engine built in a Suzuki partnered factory - it's said to be the same engine as the Suzuki DR200. Coming soon to a dealer near you!

Konker KSM200 -- Shots from the factory

We've gotten our hands on some production photo's of Konker's new KSM200. The KSM200 is the newest (and first) street legal motorcycle from Konker for the Canadian market. It's a supermoto styled model with a 200cc engine. The engine is built in a Suzuki partnered factory and comes with a full one year warranty.

From these photo's we got you can see the Konker machines are right along side some Suzuki models. I'm not familiar with the Suzuki model - looks to be for police duty maybe and from what I can see in the picture it's a "WindStorm." Must be an Asian model.

The engine of the KSM200 is said to be the same as you'd get in the tried and true Suzuki DR200. That means it'll be a 200cc single cylinder four stroke. Given its lineage, the engine should be VERY fuel efficient and durable.

The super-moto can be gotten with a bolt on 21" front / 18" rear wheel kit that comes complete with drum brake, rotor, and sprocket. So you'll be able to quickly convert the SUPER-MOTO into an off-road enduro without the hassle of switching brakes, discs, or sprockets. The O.E.M. off road 21/18” bolt on tire package is available for just $495.

One very nice feature of the Konker KSM200 - it'll have a price of only $2,995.

Konker Motors is a Langley BC based company that manufactures Dirt Bikes, ATV's, and street legal scooters from China and distributes them to qualified distributors/dealers across world.

Here's the pictures - click for a larger version.







There's also a YouTube clip of the bike in action on a track - Taken Sunday Feb 9th/09.

Konker 200cc Super Moto to hit Canadian streets

Konker Motors is a Langley BC based company that manufactures Dirt Bikes, ATV's, and street legal scooters from China and distributes them to qualified distributors/dealers across world.

For 2009, they'll be bringing their first street legal motorcycle to the Canadian market. It's billed the Konker KSM200 and its engine is built in a Suzuki partnered factory and comes with a full one year warranty.

The engine is said to be the same as you'd get in the tried and true Suzuki DR200. That means it'll be a 200cc single cylinder four stroke. Given its lineage, the engine should be VERY fuel efficient and durable.

One very nice feature of the Konker KSM200 - it'll have a price of only $2,995.

If you compare that in price to the Suzuki DR200SE MSRP of $4,699, you'll be left with $1,704 in the bank if you go with the Konker and that's not accounting for taxes either. If you factor in 13% tax it's very near a $2,000 difference.

That'll be plenty enough reasons for many folks to give the Konker a try.
