Wahid Ooi

Vespa bermula sebagai pengangkutan murah di Itali selepas Perang Dunia II, tetapi telah berkembang menjadi fenomena gaya hidup sejak itu. Vespa kini hampir berada dalam kelas tersendiri, dan syarikat itu pantas memperkenalkan model ‘lokal’ edisi terhad seperti Batik Primavera Vespa Edisi Terhad ini.

Pereka Piaggio (pemilik jenama Vespa) mengambil inspirasi daripada rekaan batik Indonesia untuk edisi ini. Batik telah diisytiharkan sebagai Warisan Dunia oleh UNESCO (Pertubuhan Pendidikan, Saintifik dan Kebudayaan Bangsa-Bangsa Bersatu). Mengikut sejarah yang tercatat, pembuatan batik bermula pada abad ke-12 dan masih kekal sebagai pakaian tradisional di negara tersebut, serta pakaian rasmi di kalangan penjawat awam.

Dengan menggunakan reka bentuk batik Indonesia, Piaggio berharap dapat menyampaikan mesej kegembiraan, kemakmuran, kekuatan, umur panjang, menghormati semua budaya, dan kebijaksanaan. Terdapat motif batik di bahagian depan dan pada petak sarung tangan, di sepanjang tulang belakang basikal di sebelah papan kaki, dan di bawah penutup enjin. Tempat duduk coklat cappucino dengan jahitan hijau melengkapkan tema.

Secara mekanikal, edisi terhad ini kekal sama dengan enjin 150cc, sejukan udara, silinder tunggal, yang menghasilkan 12.8 hp dan tork 12.9 Nm.

Piaggio belum mengesahkan harga untuk Vespa Primavera Batik Edisi Terhad ini, dan bilakah ia akan mula dijual.

Apa kata kita gesa Piaggio untuk membuat edisi terhad ‘Bunga Raya’ untuk pasaran Malaysia?

Vespa began as a cheap form of transportation in Italy post-WWII, but has since grown to be a lifestyle phenomenon. Vespa is now almost in a class of its own, and the company is quick to introduce limited edition ‘local’ models like this Vespa Primavera Batik.

For this edition, Piaggio (the owners of the Vespa brand) designers too inspiration from the Indonesian batik design. The batik is declared a World Heritage by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation). According to recorded history, the batik making began in the 12th century and is still remains the traditional wear in the country, as well as the formal wear amongst the public servants.

By adopting the Indonesian batik design, Piaggio hopes to convey the message of of joy, prosperity, strength, longevity, respect for all cultures, and wisdom. There are batik motifs on the front and on glove compartment, along the spine of the bike next to the footboards, and underneath the rear nacelle. A cappucino brown seat with green stitching completes the theme.

Mechanically, this limited edition remains the same with the 150cc, air-cooled, single cylinder engine, which produces 12.8 hp and 12.9 Nm of torque.

Piaggio has not confirmed the price for the Vespa Primavera Batik, nor when will it be available.

Now, how about we lobby Piaggio to make a ‘Bunga Raya’ limited edition for the Malaysian market?

DJI sudah dalam pembuatan dron dan aksesori video tetapi Kongres Amerika Syarikat sedang berusaha untuk mengharamkan dron mereka. Pengharaman di AS juga boleh menyebabkan larangan di Kesatuan Eropah. Jadi, apa yang DJI lakukan? Mereka mempelbagaikan perniagaan mereka untuk menghasilkan sistem pacuan DJI Avinox Drive System untuk basikal elektrik.

DJI menggunakan pengetahuan mereka dalam pengawal dan motor elektrik tanpa berus untuk menghasilkan satu unit pemacu yang mempunyai kuasa puncak 1,000 Watt (1 kW/1.34 hp) dan tork 120 Nm. Berat unit pemacu ini hanya 2.52 kg.

Terdapat dua pilihan bateri: 600 Wh dan 800 Wh. Yang pertama mempunyai berat hanya 2.9 kg dan mampu memberikan jarak sehingga 120 km. Bateri 800 Wh, sebaliknya, mempunyai berat 3.7 kg dan boleh sampai 157 km. Kedua-dua bateri kalis habuk dan air tahap IP56 serta menggunakan teknologi pengecasan pantas GaN, yang membantu mereka mengecas daripada 0% hingga 75% dalam masa kira-kira 1.5 jam.

Jarak maksimum bergantung pada cara penggunaan kuasa, oleh itu terdapat lima mod tunggangan: Auto, Eco, Trail, Turbo dan Boost. Eco memberikan jarak terjauh, manakala Boost memberikan tork tertinggi sambil mengurangkan jarak maksimum. Tetapi, terdapat juga mod kuasa yang berbeza dalam mod tunggangan tersebut iaitu Intelligent Walk Assist, Auto Hold, Hill Start Assist dan Stationary Shifting. Terdapat sepasang suis tanpa wayar yang dipasang pada bar hendal untuk menyesuaikan tetapan semasa dalam perjalanan.

Termasuk dalam set ialah Paparan Kawalan (Control Display) dengan skrin sentuh OLED warna penuh berukuran 2-inci yang berfungsi sebagai hab kawalan yang bersambung ke telefon pintar anda. Melalui aplikasi Avinox, anda boleh mengunci/membuka kunci basikal anda dan merekodkan data perjalanan anda. Terdapat pelbagai penderia yang menangkap hampir 50 titik data, membolehkan anda menyesuaikan kandungan pada Paparan Kawalan melalui aplikasi, termasuk parameter seperti masa perjalanan, jarak, kelajuan purata, output kuasa masa nyata dan banyak lagi.

Sistem pacuan DJI Avinox Drive System sudah digunakan oleh basikal mountain-bike Amflow PL. Dan, ia telah pun memenangi Anugerah Eurobike 2024. DJI berkata anda boleh menghubungi mereka sekiranya anda ingin menyesuaikannya ke basikal semasa anda.

DJI is already a famous name for making drones and other video accessories but the United States Congress is seeking to ban their drones. A ban in the US may also lead to a ban in the European Union. So, what does DJI do? Sit down and moan? Not a chance! As such, they diversified to produce the DJI Avinox Drive System for e-bikes.

Utilising their knowledge in controllers and brushless electric motors, the drive unit has a peak power of 1,000 Watts (1 kW/1.34 hp) and 120 Nm of torque. This drive unit weigh only 2.52 kg.

There are two battery options: 600 Wh and 800 Wh. The former weighs just 2.9 kg and delivers a range of up to 120 km. The 800 Wh, on the other hand, weighs 3.7 kg and goes up to 157 km. Both batteries are IP56 dust and waterproof and use GaN fast-charging technology, which helps them charge from 0% to 75% in about 1.5 hours.

Range is of course dependent on how the power is delivered, as such there are five riding modes: Auto, Eco, Trail, Turbo, and Boost. Eco delivers the longest range, while Boost delivers the highest torque while sacrificing range. But, there are also different power modes within those riding modes namely Intelligent Walk Assist, Auto Hold, Hill Start Assist, and Stationary Shifting. There is a pair of handlebar-mounted wireless switches to customise the settings on-the-go.

Included in the set is 2-inch OLED full-colour touchscreen Control Display which functions as a control hub which connects to your smartphone. Through the Avinox app, you can lock/unlock your bike and record your ride data. There is an array of sensors that capture nearly 50 data points, allowing you to customise the contents on the Control Display via the app, including parameters like ride time, range, average speed, real-time power output, and more.

The DJI Avinox Drive System is already in use by the Amflow PL mountain bike. And, it has already won the Eurobike Award 2024. DJI says you can contact them should you want to retrofit it to your current bike.

So, how is that for diversification?

Juara dunia sembilan kali Valentino Rossi dan Francesca Novello bakal menyambut anak kedua mereka.

Rossi mengumumkan berita gembira itu dalam akaun media sosial X dengan beberapa gambar dan kapsyen “La Franci è incinta, aspettiamo un’altra bambina,” yang diterjemahkan kepada “Franci hamil, kami menjangkakan seorang lagi gadis kecil.” Ya, anak pertama mereka juga seorang perempuan, bernama Guilietta.

Foto-foto menunjukkan Rossi berpakaian seperti seorang doktor yang dikaitkan dengan nama samarannya “The Doctor” ketika berlumba. Foto ini meniru foto ketika dia mengumumkan anak pertama mereka pada 2021. Dia bersara daripada perlumbaan motosikal profesional tidak lama kemudian.

Walaupun masih mengekalkan jawatan sebagai duta Yamaha, “The Doctor” ialah pemilik pasukan VR46 Racing Team yang menggunakan jentera Ducati di dalam kejuaraan MotoGP.

Selain itu, Rossi telah beralih kepada perlumbaan kereta dan telah mencapai beberapa keputusan yang baik.

Beliau kini merupakan pemandu GT3 pasukan pengilang untuk BMW. Beliau memulakan kerjaya GT3-nya dengan pasukan WRT dan Audi pada 2022, tetapi pasukan itu beralih kepada BMW tahun lepas untuk menghadapi usaha pengilang dalam kelas Hypercar di dalam Kejuaraan Endurans Dunia (WEC). Oleh itu, pertukaran kepada BMW dalam GT3 adalah sebahagian daripada pakej tersebut.

Memandu BMW M4 GT3, Rossi telah menaikki podium beberapa kali dalam siri GT World Challenge Europe (GTWCE), termasuk dua kemenangan, kedua-duanya di Misano.

Tahun ini, beliau berganjak ke WEC segaris dengan penglibatan beliau di dalam GTWCE. Rossi meraih podium pertamanya awal tahun ini pada pusingan kedua di Imola. Malangnya, BMW #46 miliknya terlibat dalam kemalangan berbilang kereta di Spa. Perlumbaan Le Mans 24 Jam baru-baru ini menyaksikan keretanya mendahului beberapa kali sebelum terlibat dalam satu lagi kemalangan berbilang kereta.

Nine times world champion Valentino Rossi and Francesca Novello are expecting their second child.

Rossi announced the good news in his X social media account with several pictures and the caption “La Franci è incinta, aspettiamo un’altra bambina,” which translates to “Franci is pregnant, we are expecting another little girl.” Yes, their first child was also a girl, named Guilietta.

The photos show Rossi dressed as a doctor attributing to this nickname “The Doctor.” These photos mimic the ones when he announced their first child in 2021. He retired from professional motorcycle racing soon after.

While still retaining his ambassadorship for Yamaha, “The Doctor” is the owner of the VR46 Racing Team that races Ducatis in MotoGP.

Apart from that, Rossi has turned to car racing and has achieved several good results.

He is currently a factory GT3 driver for BMW. The Italian began his GT3 career with the WRT team and Audi in 2022, but the team switched to BMW last year in order to take on its factory World Endurance Championship (WEC) effort in the Hypercar class. As such, the switch to BMW in GT3 was part of the package.

Driving the BMW M4 GT3, Rossi has finished on the podium multiple times in the GT World Challenge Europe (GTWCE) series, including two wins, both at Misano.

This year, he stepped up to WEC in combination with his GTWCE commitments. Rossi scored his first podium earlier this year at round two in Imola. Unfortunately, his #46 BMW was involved in multi-car crashes at Spa. The recent 24 Hours of Le Mans saw his car leading several times before being involved in another multi-car crash.
