Renowned automotive custom designers Vilner have taken another (rare) step into the world of motorcycles. The result: a heavily customised Aprilia Tuono aptly named the Stingray.


The Stingray’s transformation from its Tuono base-bike is pretty extensive. It sports a brand new set of fenders, redesigned headlamps and turn signals with LEDs, new side spoilers with two-vents carved in each, tinted/smoked rear lamps, and a redesigned fuel tank. Topping it off, Vilner has reupholstered the seats on the Stingray, re-sprayed the wheels, painted parts of the Tuono’s frame in black, repositioned the license plate holders, and extended the Tuono’s orginal fork and driving chain length by 150mm.

Weighing in at just 120kg, the power output should give the featherweight naked a very punchy power delivery. Specs on the RS3 125 NKD include a multi-function digital instrumentation display, 41mm Paioli inverted forks, a wavy 300mm front disc brake by Galfer, as well as cast alloy swingarm. (more…)

THE BMW Group has announced that the firm has sold its Husqvarna sub-brand at an undisclosed price. The swedish sub-brand is now under the stewardship of Pierer Industries AG, a firm coincidentally owned by KTM CEO Stefan Pierer.


“Hate it, or love, the underdogs still on top”, rapped The Game and 50 cent in ‘hate it, or love it’, a song off the game’s earlier albums. For Wayne Rooney haters, that one line cannot be more true. (more…)
