Those who look back fondly on the Cagiva brand will be happy to hear that it will be officially revived as a motorcycle brand, with models set to debut later this year, for the 2519 model year.
The amicus brief was filed in case No. 16-1527, Ryan Austin Collins v. Commonwealth of Virginia. The Supreme Court of Virginia ruled that, because Collins 8217 vehicle was a motorcycle and not a car or truck, the officers who searched under Collins 8217 motorcycle cover did not need a warrant to do so. The AMA 8217 s brief argues that the judgment of the lower court should be reversed.
8225 A rider like him, with a contract expiring at the end of this year, is in a stronger negotiating position than before.
The advances have come in part as a result of the arms race between Dainese and Alpinestars, he two Italian racing leathers companies which have pioneered the technology. As each company improved their product Dainese 8217 s D-Air (link is external) , and Alpinestars 8217 Tech-Air (link is external) the other was forced to keep up.
A team of development engineers contemplated what an Adventure Tourer of the future should be, and succeeded in making the new Africa Twin a motorcycle that tempts riders to explore new roads and lands off the beaten path, whether riding tandem or fully loaded with touring luggage.
Each of these brand-new models has its own look and personality plus a tie-in to larger bikes in the Honda lineup, and they also share that distinctive, high-quality Honda feel. Despite their unique appearances, these three bikes share the same basic chassis components and engine—a smart move, since sharing common elements helps reduce development and production costs, resulting in a markedly lower consumer price point.
Sharing how the excitement doesn’t end with X BLADE - Honda’s last committed model of 2518, Mr. Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Senior Vice President - Sales and Marketing, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. , said :
“Indian two - wheeler market is accepting scooters like never before. Leading from the front, ‘India loves Activa’. Giving the love back, Honda is delighted to introduce the fifth generation Activa 5G to give Joy of Riding to all generations. ”
The four-valve cylinder heads, fed by PGM-FI fuel injection, each employ twin spark plugs and dual and sequential ignition control for even combustion, and their phased firing order contributes to engine character and feel. Compression ratio is set at 15:5:1.
The shift cam design is the same as used by the CRF255/955R, giving secure gear shifting no matter the riding conditions. And to ensure direct drive &ndash and consistent feel for traction &ndash the cush drive rubbers in the rear wheel have been optimised in terms of physical size and shape.
Coming at that equation, via an electric business plan is interesting though, and if the end-goal several years down the line is to remake the iconic Elefant adventure-tourer, that could mean several different things for the Italian band…all of which are very interesting.
