LeoVince USA NewsThe Honda MSX125 “Grom” might be a small bike, but it has been making a big impression since its introduction in Asia earlier this year. Now, LeoVince USA Specialized Products Distribution is adding Bridgestone Racing Tires and the GPRV4 Stabilizer to its lineup of aftermarket parts and accessories for the popular Grom MSX 125.
Grom riders can get superior traction and handling with the Bridgestone Battlax BT-601SS front (100/90-12) and rear (120/80-12) tires. These race tires have minimal grooves and come in Bridgestone’s YCY compound. The medium compound offers long-lasting grip, giving riders more fast laps than soft-compound slicks.The GPRV4 stabilizer gives Grom riders 20 levels of damping, all selected by a turn of the large, no-slip dial that is easy to use, even with gloves on. The GPRV4 is available in eight color options, and it mounts easily to the top of the triple clamp with no drilling required.Honda Grom Parts Now at LeoVince USA:Bridgestone Battlax BT-601SS, 100/90-12 YCY Front Part #: SCS00500 MSRP: $152Bridgestone Battlax BT-601SS, 120/80-12 YCY Rear Part #: SCS00600 MSRP: $172GPRV4 Stabilizer Part #: 5011-4092K (black), 5011-4092B (blue), 5011-4092R (red), 5011-4092O (orange), 5011-4092G (green), 5011-4092Y (gold), 5011-4092P (purple), 5011-4092T (titanium) MSRP: $495For more information about LeoVince products, visit the LeoVince USA website at leovinceusa.com.
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Ultimate Motorcycling’s weekly Podcast—Motos and Friends.
My name is Arthur Coldwells.
This week’s Podcast is brought to you by Yamaha motorcycles. Discover how the YZF-R7 provides the perfect balance of rider comfort and true supersport performance by checking it out at YamahaMotorsports.com, or see it for yourself at your local dealer.
This week’s episode features Senior Editor Nic de Sena’s impressions of the beautiful new Harley-Davidson Low Rider ST that is loosely based around the original FXRT Sport Glide from the 1980s. Hailing from The Golden State, these cult-status performance machines became known as West Coast style, with sportier suspension, increased horsepower, and niceties including creature comforts such as a tidy fairing and sporty luggage.
In past episodes you might have heard us mention my best friend, Daniel Schoenewald, and in the second segment I chat with him about some of the really special machines in his 170 or so—and growing—motorcycle collection. He’s always said to me that he doesn’t consider himself the owner, merely the curator of the motorcycles for the next generation.
Yet Daniel is not just a collector, but I can attest a really skilled rider. His bikes are not trailer queens, they’re ridden, and they’re ridden pretty hard. Actually, we have had many, many memorable rides on pretty much all of the machines in the collection at one time or another.
From all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
