Datuk Razlan Razali plans to start a new Moto3 team and it must have a Malaysian rider. He said, “I don’t want to have only an European rider, I want Malaysian a rider as well” in the team.

He said this because there was a request from a potential investor in Europe for him to run a Moto3 team in the 2025 World Motorcycle Championship.

This is a great opportunity to include a national talent like Hakim Danish Ramli who is currently competing in the JuniorGP World Championship and the Red Bull Rookies Cup.

“Last week, there was a request from sponsors and potential investors (from Europe) asking me to come back, at least for a Moto3 team. They have a rider they want to bring in but want their own team.

“So I used that opportunity, maybe one European rider and another Malaysian rider. For me, if I want to make a Moto3 team, I don’t want the team to be all from Europe (riders), I want to include Malaysian riders as well,” he said.

Datuk Razlan also wants Zulfahmi Khairuddin who leads the ZK Racing team to participate in the project.

“I also have to get Zulfahmi’s opinion on whether I want KTM (machinery). If Moto3 is between Honda and KTM, KTM is better and things like this have to be planned well,” said Razlan.

He expects the final decision about it may be known before the Grand Prix (GP) of Kazakhstan, mid-June.

As the name suggest, the CFMOTO 800MT Sport R is a sportier take on the Chinese firm adventure-tourer. 

  • The 800MT Sport R takes inspiration from the firm’s involvement in Moto3. 
  • Features revised suspension, lower ground clearance and 17-inch wheels. 

CFMOTO revealed the 800MT back in April 2021 as an adventure-type motorcycle that borrows much of its underpinnings from the KTM 790 Adventure.

That said, the 799cc LC8 parallel-twin engine makes 95hp @ 9,000rpm and 77Nm @ 7,500rpm.

While it was built as a potent adventure bike, CFMOTO decided to give it a twist during a special unveiling at EICMA, last week.

As a result, the 800MT Sport R features some changes to its chassis and ergonomics to make it sharper on the road or track. 

Similar to the Ducati Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak, CFMOTO ditched the 19-inch rims and shod a road-focused 17-inch wheels. 

The smaller wheels ensures the bike can be fitted with a sportier and track-focused tires.

In addition the 800MT Sport R also features revised KYB suspension, lower ground clearance and reworked rebound and compression damping settings. 

CFMOTO also upgraded its stock J.Juan brake callipers to a high performance Brembo brakes. Other notable features include CFMOTO Pruestel GP Moto3 team inspired colourway. 

Unfortunately, no words from CFMOTO whether the 800MT Sport R will be going into production anytime soon. If it does, expect some tweak than the concept shown in Milan. 

MotoGP legend, Max Biaggi has decided to shutdown his Sterilgarda Husqvarna Max Racing Moto3 team after four years.

  • Max Biaggi is heavily linked with a move to RNF Aprilia MotoGP team for the 2023 season.
  • Sterilgarda Husqvarna Max Racing to exit Moto3 by the end of 2022. 

The announcement came at the back of John McPhee and Ayumu Sasaki taking top two podium position at the Malaysian MotoGP on Sunday.

The four-time 250cc Grand Prix champion and two-time Superbike World Champion (WSBK) titleholder recalled the team achievement in the last years.

“A wonderful double, after a very difficult period, in which it was necessary to make painful decisions. 

“We started the World Championship Moto3 four years ago and every year we got at least one win. In the debut year there were even three, like this year. 

“We had the pleasure and honor to bring three different drivers back to victory and we brought a young driver to the first victory. All this fills me with pride and satisfaction. We started very far away and after a few years we set up a winning team, but now for me the time has come for new challenges. 

“Valencia will represent the last race in Moto3 of the Max Racing Team. I want to thank Sterilgarda Alimenti, which has always supported me, Husqvarna Motorcycles, KTM and all those who in recent years have contributed to achieving these results,” he said.

In addition, the 51-year-old also hints looking forward to the next project in 2023.

Reports suggest that his next destination is to join Razlan Razali’s RNF Aprilia MotoGP outfit where he will assume the role of Technical Advisor.

Ducati telah berkongsi imej terkini mengenai jentera prototaip elektrik sulung yang akan dibekalkan sebagai jentera lumba rasmi MotoE World Cup bermula 2023.

Pengeluar motosikal berprestasi tinggi dari Itali itu giat membangunkan jentera elektrik serba baharu sejak diumumkan sebagai pembekal utama MotoE bermula 2023 menggantikan Energica Ego yang diguna pakai sejak 2019.

Selepas didedahkan kepada umum menerusi sesi pra-ujian pada Disember lalu, Ducati akhirnya mendedahkan video dan gambar yang lebih terperinci mesin MotoE – kod nama V21L – menjalani sesi ujian di Litar Vallelunga, Itali.

Bekas pelumba MotoGP, Alex de Angelis dan pelumba uji Ducati, Michelle Pirro dipertanggungjawabkan untuk menguji jentera serba baharu itu.

Walaupun ini merupakan percubaan sulung Ducati dalam pembangunan jentera elektrik, Pengarah eMobility Ducati, Roberto Cane mendakwa syarikat itu tidak pernah berhenti dalam proses pembangunan.

“Sejak kami membawa prototaip Ducati MotoE untuk sesi ujian kali pertama, projek pembangunan tidak pernah berhenti walaupun untuk sektika.

“Usaha keras pasukan telah membuahkan hasil dan memberi kami kepuasan.

“Dalam tempoh empat bulan sahaja, prototaip kami telah berjaya mendominasi beberapa litar utama di Itali di samping memberikan respon yang positif. Walaupun masih banyak yang perlu dilakukan tapi kami berada di landasan betul,” jelasnya.

Sementara itu, musim 2022 MotoE – yang juga musim terakhir bersama mesin Energica – akan membuka tirai pada 30 April ini.

Susulan masalah logistik, Kejuaraan Dunia FIM MotoGP terpasa mengubah jadual GP Argentina yang sepatutnya bermula dengan sesi ujian bebas pada Jumaat kepada hari Sabtu.

Lima penerbangan kargo yang membawa kesemua kategori kejuaraan gagal tiba di Termas d Rio Hondo, Argentina pada masa ditetapkan dan hanya akan sampai pada Jumaat.

Ini sekaligus memaksa pihak penganjur untuk mengubah jadual sedia ada.

Berdasarkan pengumuman rasmi yang dibuat pada Khamis, aksi GP Argentina hanya akan berlangsung pada Sabtu bermula dengan sesi Ujian Bebas 1 (FP1) diikuti Ujian Bebas 2 (FP2).

Sementara itu, sesi Ujian Bebas 3 (FP3) diikuti Kelayakan 1 (Q1) dan Kelayakan 2 (Q2) juga akan berlangsung pada hari sama di sebelah petang.

Masalah logistik bermul pada Rabu apabila satu daripada lima kargo mengalami masalah teknikal sewaktu penghentian di Mombasa, Kenya.

Kapal terbang pertama yang telah tiba di Tucuman telah patah balik ke Lombok bagi mengambil barangan lain namun turut alami masalah teknikal.

Setakat Khamis, satu kargo masih tersadai di Kenya dan menanti alat ganti dari Eropah serta Timur Tengah.
