BST Carbon-Fiber Motorcycle WheelsBrock’s Performance, the exclusive North American distributor of BST carbon-fiber wheels since 2009, is happy to announce that it has lowered prices on most of these tough, stunning, lightweight rims, which can now be purchased for up to $840 less than ever before.
Due to BST’s increased efficiency that has lowered costs on everything from aerospace-grade materials to cutting-edge production techniques to Brock’s state-of-the-art ASCTrac warehouse-management system and quick shipping from its Dayton, Ohio headquarters, wheel prices have been slashed by up to 20 percent across the entire product line. Now, these exclusive wheels can be purchased for as little as $3300 per set.“We’re always looking to bring our knowledge and 30 years of experience to motorcyclists at the lowest prices using the latest technology,” said company President, Brock Davidson.Weighing up to 60 percent less than stock wheels, BSTs enable faster acceleration, decreased braking distances, better suspension performance and lighter handling by reducing unsprung mass and gyroscopic effects in cornering. These enhanced dynamics provide amazing street performance and quicker lap times at the track.Proven around the globe in world-championship competition, they’ve flawlessly rolled to a mind-bending, stupid fast 311 mph in land-speed racing on a 600-pound, 1000-horsepower, turbocharged monster and while lunging off the line and sprinting down the quarter mile in 6.90 seconds on violent, nitrous-breathing, 550 hp drag-racer bikes.Available for 175 sportbikes, sport-tourers and cruisers from a dozen American, European and Japanese brands, all BST wheels are constructed in a one-piece, monocoque design and utilize carbon fiber strands woven in a unidirectional format, embedded in a resin matrix, cured in a high-pressure autoclave at 250 degrees and coated with a high-gloss finish. This combination of materials and production techniques enables BST to offer a limited, two-year warranty.BST wheels sold to customers through BrocksPerformance.com come upgraded with Worldwide Bearing steel bearings, low-tension seals and Mobil Polyrex EM lube. For even less rolling resistance, the wheels can be fitted with optional ceramic bearings built to Brock’s Performance specs. The company provides industry-leading customer service, aftercare and dealer support by a team of experts. An official BST service and repair center, Brock’s expedites handling of warranty issues, returns and exchanges.For more information about BST wheels and 3000 other go-fast goodies from Brock’s Performance, please visit BrocksPerformance.com, call 937-912-0054 or keep up with the latest developments on its active Facebook page, YouTube channel and Twitter postings.
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends, the weekly podcast brought to you by Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Motos and Friends is brought to you by the awesome Yamaha YZF-R7. The R7 is an amazing supersport machine that is comfortable too! Check out the YZF-R7 at your local Yamaha dealer, or of course at YamahaMotorsports.com.
In this week’s first segment, Senior Editor Nic de Sena goes to the Yamaha MT-10 launch. I have to say, the R1-derived MT-10 is one of my all time favorite street bikes. It’s the perfect balance of instant, usable power, crammed into an agile yet stable chassis. All that is built into an incredibly easy-to-ride package. And I’m not even going to mention it’s ability to wheelie… The latest MT-10 has had some upgrades, so I’m very curious to hear what Nic thinks.
For our second segment this week I chat with Paul Jayson—aka The Motorcycle Broker. Paul has been restoring, collecting, and selling investment grade motorcycles and cars for several decades, and his knowledge and passion for the art of motorcycling seems pretty much unrivaled.
Paul’s quest for total authenticity and insistence on a breathtaking level of detail is incredible. Actually, one of his restorations—a classic MV Agusta—won recently at Salon Privé.
Paul’s take on how the motorcycle market developed globally, and where it’s going, I found fascinating. You can visit Paul’s website at TheMotorcycleBroker.co.uk.
From all of here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
