The Yamaha YZF-R6, which dominated the debut season of MotoAmerica, is a formidable mid-size high-performance sport bike. Utilizing fly-by-wire technology and performance enhancements like the Yamaha Chip Controlled Intake that varies intake tract length and a slipper-type clutch, the the 2016 Yamaha R6 is outstanding on both the street and track.High-quality suspension is four-way adjustable (spring preload, high- and low-speed compression damping, and rebound damping) at both ends, and a removable shock spacer and adjustable fork ride height allows personalization of the R6’s handling.
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.
