Honda introduced the 4-stroke Elite 80 in 1985 as the eventual successor to their 2-stroke Aero 80. Honda had released an entirely 2-stroke line up of scooters in ’83 when it entered the North American market, but increasingly stringent emissions regulations prevented Honda from selling 2-strokes larger than 50cc for very long. In 1984 Honda released its first 4-stroke modern scooter, the Elite 125, and then released both larger (Elite 250) and smaller (Elite 80) siblings for 1985.
500cc's of power was the most Piaggio ever made in a touring scooter. This unit has been through a couple of tours and definitely has gained some bumps and bruises along the way. 27313 km. on the dash but mechanically sound and included the OEM touring luggage, two panniers and a topcase
The Piaggio MP3 400 utilizes two independently suspended 12" wheels together with parallelogram suspension, an original Piaggio design, allowing a tilt angle up to 40 degrees. You will not feel a scooter more stable and planted when cornering or hard on the brakes. With the extra wheel up front you would expect the steering to feel heavy, but it actually steers quite quickly and feels very similar to a regular motorcycle with some extra stability thrown in.
The three wheel revolution progresses even further with the MP3 500. With aggressive styling and performance, the Piaggio MP3 500 is the three-wheeler for people who want to stand out. ‘Safe fun’ is no longer an oxymoron. Riding has never been this easy, enjoyable and secure. Two front wheels and a revolutionary parallelogram front suspension together with the new double ignition Master 500ie engine give the MP3 500 very racy performance while remaining exceptionally safe.
With its totally original constructional approach, the Aprilia Sportcity revolutionised the way high wheeled scooters are perceived the moment it hit the market. With 15″ wheels, generous tyres, powerful engines and an extremely stiff chassis, Sportcity immediately set itself apart as scooter that perfectly combines the comfort of a high wheeled scooter with the dynamism of a sports machine, offering a new concept of urban mobility that is more active and exciting than ever before.
2012 Honda CBR1000RR C-ABS is the essential superbike-the perfect balance of power and handling designed to work together as one complete package.
The CBR1000RR C-ABS boasts even better handling via a patented Balance-Free Rear Shock, Big Piston Fork and new wheels. Add to that a 999.8cc engine pumping out huge midrange horsepower and torque for class-leading real-world muscle, and you have a high-performance package unmatched in its overall balance by the
Showa Big Piston Forks and a Sachs shock show that the 959 Panigale is a serious track machine, as does the Ducati Quick Shift system, 158 horses, 78 ft/lbs of torque, and Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa tires on alloy rims. You also get Ducati’s impressive electronics suite, which includes traction control, Bosch ABS, Mitsubishi EFI, a quickshifter, and adjustable engine compression braking.
The 2016 Hypermotard 939 SP is a platform for anyone who needs to live multiple lives. It has a comfortable, upright riding position, quick and sure-footed handling, and an engine that will leave you fumbling for the keys while counting the minutes until you can leave your respectable persona at the office.
The racebike DNA is strong with the RSV4 RF, and it starts in earnest right out of the gate with a close-fit front fender that’s cut down to minimize unsprung weight while leaving foil-shaped uprights that steer the wind around the fork lowers and protect the inner fork tubes from grit. A full cowling runs with sides that are extended forward a tad to engulf the front wheel, and though it continues all the way down and mates up with the belly fairing, it very quickly opens up to reveal some of the engine with a series of vents to help eliminate waste heat.
