2013 AMA Pro Road RacingThe KTM/HMC Superbike Racing Team featuring Chris Fillmore and Taylor Knapp is excited to launch a new look for the second round of the AMA Pro SuperBike Racing season to remain consistent with the rebranding of all KTM racing teams.
The new paint job reflects the blue and orange coloring that has been seen on both the motocross and off-road factory KTM racing teams.John Hinz (KTM Product Line Manager) says: “We are very excited about the new team colors. The new colors help our bike stand out on the track and we felt Road America was the perfect course to launch the change as it is considered our team’s hometown race.”The KTM/HMC Team, based in Cato, WI has been heavily focused on the development of the motorcycle since the first race two months ago.Mitch Hansen (KTM/HMC Superbike Team Manager) says: “We have made great progress on the motorcycle and feel like we should have a great showing at our local race.”While the weather calls for rain it does not scare away this team.Mitch Hansen says: “Fillmore and Knapp are both great riders under any conditions. Fillmore has had great success at this course before under wet circumstances and we are hoping, if the weather is bad, that we can repeat that success.”
Zero Electric ADV Bike + Al and Bridget from Throw Your Leg Over
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello everyone and welcome to Motos and Friends, a weekly Podcast brought to you by the editorial team at Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Electric mobility is everywhere nowadays. Whether it’s a car, a truck, an assisted bicycle, a scooter, or any number of new innovations, the electric revolution is certainly here. In this week’s first segment, Nic de Sena took a ride on Zero’s recently announced new Adventure bike—the Zero DSR-X. There’s been a lot of hype about this new arrival on the ADV scene, and of course the questions are many. Nic talks to me about whether Zero actually have a credible, alternative energy ADV bike—or if the machine is just simply an empty promise.
In our second segment, I chat with Al and Bridget from ‘Throw Your Leg Over’. They took time out to record this episode from somewhere in the middle of Romania, of all places.
These interesting Aussies have traveled—and painstakingly documented—the thousands of miles they’ve covered riding the best roads and sights through Australia, Tasmania, Europe, eastern Europe, and Scandinavia, among other places.
