As September 28, 2023, fast approaches, BMW Motorrad has been steadily building excitement for its upcoming release, the R 1300 GS Adventure motorcycle.

Unlike some manufacturers who keep their new models shrouded in secrecy until the last minute, BMW Motorrad has taken a different approach, already revealing the name of this highly anticipated bike.

To herald the arrival of the new BMW R 1300 GS Adventure, the Motorrad team has opted for a unique teaser strategy. Instead of cryptic silhouettes or extreme close-ups, they’ve chosen to showcase a single action shot of the bike in the midst of an adventure, sparking intrigue among motorcycle enthusiasts.

On Facebook, the caption invites readers to “Set the pace with the all-new BMW #R1300GS?” followed by the curious eyeballs emoji. It promises more updates on the unveiling, reminding everyone to stay tuned for the big reveal on September 28th at 5 PM CEST, using the hashtag #ThePacesetter.

The teaser image, while shrouded in a splash of water, provides a subtle glimpse of what’s to come. Enthusiasts with a keen eye might spot the signature wire-spoke wheels and dual brake discs that are a hallmark of GS motorcycles. Some observant commenters on social media have even suggested that the front end appears slightly slimmer compared to the previous R 1250 GS, although it’s challenging to gauge proportions accurately due to the surrounding water in the photo.

With just a few more days to go until the grand unveiling, the motorcycling community eagerly anticipates the official debut of the BMW R 1300 GS Adventure and the adventures it promises to bring. Stay tuned for more updates and details on this exciting release.

Aprilia is turning heads and causing quite the stir in the motorcycle community with a fresh teaser. Yes, a new sportbike is on the horizon, and while the teaser provides just a glimpse, it’s enough to set our pulses racing.

  • Aprilia set to unveil it’s latest sportsbike on September 7. 
  • the upcoming motorcycle is believed to be the all-new RS 457 as confirmed by new trademark filing submitted in July. 

From the shadows and glimpses across various platforms, what’s becoming clear is that this isn’t just any bike. It seems Aprilia is set to introduce a smaller counterpart to the acclaimed RS 660, potentially giving well-known models like the KTM RC 390, Yamaha YZF-R3, and Kawasaki Ninja 400 a run for their money.

At first, speculation ran wild with enthusiasts and fans trying to guess the name of this mysterious model. Many expected a title in line with its bigger sibling, like the “RS 440”. However, a confirmation from put these speculations to rest. Behold, the Aprilia RS 457.

So, what do we know so far?

Visually, the bike is showing its lineage. The front showcases elements reminiscent of the RS 660 and the RSV4, especially with the striking black and red color theme. Yet, it’s not an exact clone. A closer look reveals a somewhat flatter fuel tank and a seat design that boasts a distinct curve. The tail design appears more streamlined, shedding some of the sharp angles seen on the larger models.

But let’s address the elephant in the room – the unconventional name, RS 457. Most brands often opt for rounded numbers for their models. However, Aprilia has broken from the norm. Sharp-eyed fans first got a whiff of this when they spotted the number “457” in filenames of the teaser photo on Aprilia’s website.

Digging deeper, a visit to Aprilia India’s website hinted at the same. Yet, the most definitive hint came in the form of a trademark filing by Piaggio in Italy for the RS 457 logo.

While the teaser might not spill all the beans, it’s evident that Aprilia is gearing up to introduce a new gem to its lineup. And if the brand’s history is anything to go by, the RS 457 might just be the fresh breeze the motorcycle community has been eagerly waiting for.

The R 12 NineT follows in the footsteps of the classic roadster styling of its predecessor, the R NineT, providing a platform for customization. 

The new model boasts an updated frame design that includes a removable rear subframe, offering customizers more freedom to create. The solo seat, with an integrated LED taillight, has a thicker appearance than the current NineT’s saddle, and a rear pad is incorporated into the tail cover.

New side panels covering the rear suspension add to the retro feel, and the black fuel tank, with metallic knee cutout surfaces, adds to the classic look.

The R 12 NineT maintains its air/oil-cooled Boxer motor, though it is not yet clear whether there are any changes to the engine’s displacement.

The new model has a modernized intake system and updated exhaust system with conical end caps. A new housing design on the left side hints at a modified transmission, though further details have not been released. The R 12 NineT also features an inverted Marzocchi fork and a cardan shaft drive.

BMW has stayed true to the classic round headlight design and dual round instrument dials, with the tachometer now showing double digit numbers marking every 100 rpm instead of single digits marking every 1,000 rpm. 

BMW says the new R 12 NineT is designed to give riders an authentic roadster feel, resembling R models from the ’70s.

The German automaker is expected to reveal full technical specifications and pricing later in the year.

QJMotor teases new sports model that packs the same 550cc parallel-twin as the upcoming MV Agusta Lucky Explorer 5.5.


Teaser video indicates a new Harley-Davidson Sportster variant will debut soon, rumoured to be a smaller capacity cruiser offshoot.


At the moment, we know that Honda plans to unveil the all-new Hawk 11 at the Annual Osaka Motorcycle Show on March 19, 2022.

So far, we also know the Hawk 11 will feature the widely used 1,084cc parallel-twin engine that’s also found in the CRF1100L Africa Twin, NT1100 and Rebel 1100.

Honda was also kind enough to showcase what the front end will look like in its first teaser.

However, the second teaser is much more enticing, as the Japanese manufacturer revealed the front fascia and the side profile.

Although the entire video was shown in a dark environment, you could see some exciting features.

Firstly, the video showed a glimpse of a Honda decal on the fuel tank, satin-finished metal accents, metal-like rear subframe with Hawk 11 decal on it.

The short video also showcased what the saddle would look like, but it’s so dark you can’t see the exact finishing used.

Although everything else remains a secret, the Hawk 11 is undoubtedly one of the bikes to look out for in 2022. 

Nevertheless, if you can’t wait until the official unveiling, you can always refer to Young-Machine render image – which we think looks eerily similar to the actual thing.

With less than two weeks to go before the official debut, stay tuned as we will bring the latest update on the upcoming Hawk 11.

Suzuki Katana Concept
  • Suzuki telah mendedahkan motosikal konsep Katana yang baharu sewaktu acara pertunjukan motosikal EICMA 2017.
  • Kini, pengeluar tersebut telah memuatnaik satu video usikan.
  • Motosikal Suzuki Katana baharu dijadual akan diperkenalkan sewaktu Intermot pada 2 Oktober.


  • Suzuki had revealed the new Katana concept at EICMA 2017.

  • Now the manufacturer has released a teaser video.

  • The new Suzuki Katana is set to be introduced at Intermot on 2nd October.

It was nothing short of a revolution when the Suzuki GSX1100S Katana was introduced in 1980.

Suzuki had revealed the new GSX-R1000 powered Katana concept at the EICMA show in Milan last year but nothing else had come from them since, although we did report earlier about Suzuki filing the patents. Until now. Check out the video below.

It shows parts of the processes of forging a katana before ending with the “Coming soon. Intermot 2nd October” message. That’s just 25 days to go at the time this article went online!

However, we are of the opinion that the concept looks like it’s made by Tupperware (as in too plasticky) and we hope Suzuki would’ve done away with it when the production bike’s revealed.

Katana concept at EICMA

The 1980 Suzuki GSX1100S Katana was a motorcycle which featured a groundbreaking design concept, which blended the rear line of the fuel tank with the front portion of the seat. The seat itself had two different colours which lent the solo racing seat look. The fairing was given a sharp leading edge –  “Katana” means samurai sword, by the way (watch “Kill Bill Vol. 1.” Or “The Last Samurai” if you’re a hopeless romantic).

The design concept, especially that seat/tank interface has since been widely adopted by other motorcycle manufacturers. This is why the first-generation model still looks great after 38 years and is highly sought-after.

Then in 1984, Suzuki released the GSX750E Katana with the pop-up headlight. It was the first and only motorcycle which has that feature.

It is also interesting to note that the bike was designed by Hans Muth, who was the chief designer at BMW. Among his greatest work during his tenure with the German manufacturer was the R90S and R100S. The R90S was the first production motorcycle to feature a headlamp-mounted fairing, while the later R100S was the first production motorcycle with a full-fairing.

As Japan’s regulators tighten emissions standards to match that of Euro4 and beyond, Honda will soon stop production of the current model and a number of models. As such, Japan’s largest motorcycle manufacturer went ahead with creating an all-new Gold Wing.

News of the new bike was leaked out into the grasps of the world’s media last month, followed by pictures of what may be the final bike. (Click here for our report.)

Ever since its inception in 1975, the Honda Gold Wing has been known as the ultimate touring motorcycle to many of its fans. Creature comforts, utility, chock full of features, refinement are what the bike is about.

The model proved to be a huge hit in the North American market that Honda Corporation actually started a factory just to build them in the USA. The production facilities were shifted back to Japan a few years ago.

There are many Gold Wing owners and clubs here in Malaysia too. You can see hundreds of them when they come together for special gatherings or motorcycle events.
