Movistar Yamaha MotoGP head to the United Kingdom this week for the Hertz British Grand Prix at the Silverstone circuit. The team arrive in confident mood after two consecutive race weekends that have seen riders Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo both feature on the podium. Silverstone is another circuit with the potential to deliver strong results for Rossi and Lorenzo with fast sweeping corners well suited to the YZR-M1.
Our friends at Motus Motorcycles down in Birmingham have launched a new website with a lot of new photos and details about the fantastic MST and MST-R bikes. There is also a very important button at the top of the page titled "Test Ride" and yes, I have clicked it already :).
To me, this move away from the simple blog they had before to more of comprehensive site one would expect from a serious manufacturer could be a clue that they must be getting close to finalizing their EPA approval and should soon be able to start selling bikes for the street. (One can purchase a Motus MST now, but it cannot be used on the street yet). The site looks great and I will be anxiously awaiting the response to my request for a test ride!

Way back in 1999, we [Motorcycledaily.com] wrote about the unique Midual flat twin placed lengthwise in a motorcycle design that appeared headed for production. In 1999, French brothers Olivier and Francois Midy relied on English designer Glynn Kerr for their simple presentation of a 900 cc motorcycle.
While the old Midual never quite made it into production, the new bike (pictured here), featuring additional bore and stroke for a 1036 cc displacement, is planned to be available for purchase by 35 discerning, and wealthy customers at a price approaching $200,000 per unit.
- So it is no secret that KTM is targeting class-leading performance in virtually every category on the street. Together with the announcement that KTM will contest the MotoGP championship beginning in 2017, news of a new superbike to replace the v-twin 1190 RC8 R has surfaced.

Motorcycle Superstore's Cody Webb knocked out the competition at the 4th running of the Tennessee Knockout held this weekend at Sequatchi, TN. Webb went on a rampage winning all three preliminary races and then besting the field in the five-lap final. This makes two years in a row that Webb has proved to be the toughest extreme off-road racer in America.
For those of you expecting to see yet another "Marquez wins again" article, be prepared for a shock. Marc Marquez not only didn't win but didn't even make the podium this past weekend at Brno. After snatching up 10 consecutive wins this season from the start, Marquez said that "he just didn't feel right on the bike today". This caused him to end up over ten seconds behind Dani Pedrosa who took first place and who beat Jorge Lorezno by just .4 seconds. Valentino Rossi took a distant third place behind Lorenzo by over 4.5 seconds.
