KTM Red Bull Factory Racing have Positive Tests at Jerez

KTM Red Bull Factory Racing have Positive Tests at Jerez

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing completed a demanding week at the Circuito de Jerez with a productive test session on Monday and Tuesday directly after the Gran Premio Red Bull de España where the KTM RC16 posted its first top ten finish of the 2018 MotoGP season.

In warm and pleasant conditions in the wake of the fourth round of nineteen in Southern Spain, the test crew helmed by Mika Kallio were joined by Grand Prix riders Pol Espargaro and Bradley Smith as the trio completed yet more laps around the short and narrow layout.

Both Espargaro and Smith tried the updated version of the KTM RC16 that Kallio used to claim tenth position in the 25-lap race on Sunday. The Fin continued his work on evolving the future incarnation of the MotoGP machine as well as assisting the Grand Prix squad with a view towards the Grand Prix de France at Le Mans on May 19-20.

The 2018 Honda Goldwing is now in the showroom

The 2018 Honda Goldwing is now in the showroom

The wait is over, the Honda Goldwing is now in the showroom!

The Honda Gold Wing, since its introduction as a naked 1000cc machine in 1975 has always been the ultimate in two-wheeled travel. And it’s a motorcycle that’s been very much on its own journey, growing in physical size and displacement over the decades, all the while creating an enduring and unrivalled reputation for luxury, quality and comfort.

Now, in response to the evolutions of demographics and the motorcycle market, the development team in charge of the bike’s future have decided on a radical departure from what would be a traditional update trajectory.

So for 2018 the GL1800 Gold Wing takes a new direction and is brand new from the wheels-up. It still has an evocative, flat six-cylinder engine that delivers an avalanche of torque and power, and it still remains Honda’s flagship premium tourer, loaded with features that allow two people to ride in style. Yet it’s smaller, much lighter and much more agile – very much a true ‘rider’s motorcycle’.

And as a result the new Gold Wing’s appeal is broader, reaching out to a younger generation of motorcyclists that may have overlooked – or simply not been aware of – the previous design. As happy on an urban commute as it is the open road, the Gold Wing is now a bike for all reasons, rather than just one.
