2014 MotoGP Tissot Watch CollectionThe MotoGP bikes have fired up for another exhilarating season. Like every year Tissot will be at the heart of the action, not only as Official Timekeeper but also as Official Watch of MotoGP. The Tissot T-Race MotoGP Limited Edition 2014 Collection features exclusive MotoGP timepieces.
This year’s Official MotoGP Collection comprises two Tissot T-Race MotoGP Limited Edition 2014 watches; one is a mechanical watch limited to 3,333 pieces, while the other is powered by a quartz movement, produced in a series of 8,888 pieces.These timepieces show all the signs of the great synergy between Tissot and MotoGP. Black and red, they bear the colours of MotoGP and of Tissot, showing their dynamism and fiery passion. Furthermore, they both demonstrate the precision that the Official Timekeeper provides during the races, as motorbikes are separated by only thousandths of a second at the finish line, and the precision that the racers themselves demonstrate on the track.François Thiébaud, Tissot President, says, “The dynamic and fast nature of MotoGP matches the brand’s spirit perfectly. The latest exclusive timepieces dedicated to MotoGP, the T-Race MotoGPTM Limited Editions 2014, celebrate the great and long-lasting alliance between MotoGP and their Official Timekeeper, Tissot.“Like the mechanics, as the sport evolves and timing gets tougher, we keep up-to-date with all the latest technologies to provide utmost accuracy whether with our watches or timekeeping.”Carmelo Ezpeleta, Dorna Sports Chief Executive Officer, adds “Tissot are an important and trusted long term partner of the World Championship and their 2014 MotoGP watches are yet again a great testament to the quality of their work. As our Official Timekeeper we know we can always count on Tissot to deliver with precision season after season and we encourage our fans to take a look at the new collection.”For additional information, visit the Tissot T-Race MotoGP website.

This week, in the first segment Editor Don Williams talks to us about the new Kawasaki Versys 650 LT. It’s the middleweight ADV style machine that uses the same 650 parallel twin motor as the Ninja 650, so it’s an excellent performer in a user-friendly, good looking package.
In the second segment, I chat with one of my dearest industry friends—now retired Honda PR executive, Jon Seidel. Jon’s fascinating career spans some 30 years with Big Red, and gave him some great experiences with some incredible machines. I was fortunate enough to be invited on many of the press launches that he organized. His new project is documenting and saving many of the old archives from years gone by—and incidentally, if you have anything that may be of value to the project, please contact us by email at email@example.com and we’ll pass it all on to Jon.
So on that note, from all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
