• Maverick Vinales mencatatkan masa terpantas bagi #QatarTest
• Andrea Dovizioso mengekori rapat di tempat kedua dengan jentera baru Ducati Desmosedici GP17
• Dani Pedrosa menyinar sebagai penunggang Honda terbaik


  • Maverick Vinales sets the fastest time in the #QatarTest

  • Andrea Dovizioso is at close second with the new Ducati Desmosedici GP17

  • Dani Pedrosa highlighted as the top Honda rider

The trend in MotoGP for being the fastest rider out there during testing sessions is hand down dominated by Maverick Vinales of the Movistar Yamaha outfit. At the end of the third day of testing over in Qatar, Vinales was consistent in all three days and of course setting the fastest time in Day 2 and Day 3. Yesterday’s best time was at 1:54.330 during his 33rd outing in the Losail International Circuit. (more…)

  • New track record set by Dovizioso at 1:54.819

  • Maverick Vinales not too far behind with only 0.360 second gap

  • Crutchlow sat comfortably in P3 under the Qatar floodlights

It was Andrea Dovizioso from the Ducati factory team who top the MotoGP timesheets in the last pre-season testing session before the first race of 2017 gets under way in Qatar. Having completed a total of 36 laps in the first day, the Italian smashed Lorenzo’s 2016 race lap record with a blistering time of 1:54.819 on his 26th lap. (more…)

Not too long ago, three time MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez took his RC213V MotoGP Honda race machine off-roading on snow and mud with specially fitted tyres. That made for an awesome video which you can watch below, but it didn’t end with just that.

There’s a new video out and this time Marquez goes out on the new Honda X-ADV scooter. He rides the scooter on the snow of the Hahnenkamm mountain in Kitzhuehel, Austria.

It may seem odd to take a scooter off-roading, but the Honda X-ADV was specially designed for just that. The X-ADV is the perfect cross between the comfort and convenience of a scooter, and the spirit and riding performance of an adventure motorcycle. It achieves awesome off-roading capabilities by utilising a tough chassis, long travel suspension, four-piston radial-mount brakes and a torque-laden 745cc twin-cylinder engine driving power through a welt multiplate hydraulic Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT).

The X-ADV also comes equipped with a 5-level adjustable screen, 21-litre underseat storage space big enough for an off-road helmet, Africa Twin hand guards, rally-style instrument display, centre stand, and the Honda Smart Key system.

The Honda X-ADV is also perfectly suited for everyday riding with selectable riding modes for maximum power or fuel efficiency, five-way adjustable screen, 17-inch front and 15-inch rear wheels and topped off with radial-mount four-piston callipers with ABS for maximum braking power.

Whether or not the Honda X-ADV is the perfect off-road scooter remains to be seen, but for now you can watch Marquez ride the X-ADV the way it is supposed to be ridden in the video below:

With a blistering time of 1:59.368, Vinales took the top spot in his 40th lap out of 72 around the Sepang International Circuit (SIC). (more…)
