Max Mercier Safety Funds and Dion Device offer 200 MAX GUARD front brake lever protectors

The Max Mercier Safety Funds, run by Michel Mercier, Max's father and by Rahul Dua and his racing team, will donate with Dion Device a MAX GUARD front brake lever protector to all riders entered for the final round of the RACE Super Series to be held from September 20 to 22nd 2013, at Shannonville Motorsport Park in Ontario. The MAX GUARD is a special edition of the Dion Device front brake lever protector. They were manufactured at only 200 copies. Each MAX GUARD is numbered and bears the number 11; young Maxime Mercier’s racing number. They come in a beautiful box containing a nice portrait of Max and a short story of the fund, in order to honor his memory.

 

These 200 MAX GUARD will be distributed Friday & Saturday, September 20 & 21st 2013 at Shannonville Motorsport Park in the FAST Riding School shop.

 

Max passed away June 12, 2005, following a racing accident in which his front brake lever came accidently in contact with another competitor. To prevent such accidents from happening again, designer Stéphane Dion developed the Dion Device, a front brake lever protector that prevents any contact with the front brake lever of a motorcycle.

 

The Max Mercier Safety Funds, investing in promoting the safety of motorcycle track riders bought 200 MAX GUARD front brake lever protector at a very special price to donate them to the motorcycle road racers, starting with the Race Series who has supported the Max Mercier Safety Funds since its very beginning. The main mission of the Max Mercier Safety Funds is to help make the motorcycle track riding sport safer.


Dion Device is a company specialized in the protection of motorcycle riders. It manufactures a patented front brake lever protector, adaptable to almost all bikes, which prevents accidental contact with the front brake lever of the bike.

2014 Ducati Superbike 899 Panigale

The 2014 Ducati Superbike 899 Panigale unveiled in Frankfurt
 
  • Highly anticipated 899 Panigale unveiled by Ducati CEO, Claudio Domenicali, at VW Group Night on the eve of the IAA Motor Show in Frankfurt
  • The stunning “Supermid”model offers a new way to access the world of Ducati Superbikes
  • 899 Panigale continues monocoque concept, Superquadro engine and benchmark electronics
The highly-anticipated Ducati 899 Panigale has been unveiled at the VW Group Night in Frankfurt, Germany, on the eve of the IAA International Motor Show, which runs from the 12-22 September. The presentation made by Ducati CEO, Claudio Domenicali,  represents a preview of the Italian Manufacturer’s exciting 2014 model range.
 
The stunning model, intended to provide a new way to access the exclusive world of Ducati Superbikes, is described as a “Supermid” version of the award-winning 1199 Panigale, designed to provide the thrill of the new generation flagship model with the refined character of an everyday streetbike.
 
Its brand new Superquadro engine features a revised bore and stroke for a broad power delivery, producing 148hp (109kW) with a torque of 73lb-ft (10.1kgm). The super-smooth power unit continues to be a fully stressed member of the innovative Panigale monocoque construction, achieving both an outstanding power-to-weight ratio and ride-enhancing agility with a dry weight of 169kg (372.5lb). An 1199 silhouette underlines the family DNA, while the Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) and the fully integrated Riding Mode technologies of Ride-by-Wire, triple stage ABS, Ducati Traction Control (DTC) and Engine Brake Control (EBC) continue the benchmark ingenuity introduced with the new generation Superbike.
 
Ducati now offers all-round performance for connoisseurs with an authentic and stylish way to enter the world of high performance. The 899 Panigale will be available from late October onwards in traditional Ducati red with black wheels or a stunning arctic white with red wheels.
