The guys over at Ichiban Moto have created this public service announcement in the hopes of reducing the abuse of vintage motorcycles that is going on around us everyday. There are several photos of the abuse in the video below so please be careful watching it as those who care about motorcycles may break down in tears (this means you, Kevin).
- Via MV Agusta press release
Thirty-eight years on from their last success, achieved by the great Giacomo Agostini on his 4-cylinder 500 cc at the Nürburgring, MV Agusta are back on the top of a world championship podium. The superb F3 675 of the MV Agusta Reparto Corse - Yakhnich Motorsport team has, in fact, pulled off a stunning Supersport win at the Phillip Island circuit to take the first round of this World Championship.
MV Agusta recently published this teaser video of their upcoming 800cc "cruiser/muscle bike" motorcycle, the Dragster. The video is chock full of the requisite heavy metal music and wobbly, documentary style video footage (complete with "slo-mo"). Despite the distracting effects, one can get a decent look at what I would best described as a Diavel "light". No pricing or availability has been released yet for the US market but I understand there is a version for the UK market priced at £10,999.00.
"We are pleased to introduce Michael Hilton who will be taking the reins of the Service Department in January. Michael is moving here from Williamsville Ducati in Buffalo, NY. He grew up in Italy, has dealership experience there, and has successfully raced both Vespa and Ducati. Please give Michael a warm welcome to Nashville!"
While not really motorcycle related you can't really complain about anything Chuck Norris related (or at least you best not or suffer his wrath). The video below is a fantastic spoof of the Jean Claude Van Damme / Volvo commercial that was released last month. Of course Chuck takes Jean Claude to School when it comes to impressive splits while at the same time throwing in a bit of Christmas cheer. Enjoy!
