Zero XU   ENGINE TYPE: Electric BATTERY: Lithium-ion CAPACITY: 3.0 kWh TRANSMISSION: Clutchless 1-speed WHEELBASE: 55 inches RAKE: 24.7 degrees WEIGHT: 221 pounds PRICE: $7695   A smaller, maneuverable city bike with an unintimidating 31.5-inch seat height (a two-inch lower accessory seat is available), the XU has 75-percent more range than last year and can now go an EPA-estimated 42 miles on a single charge. Using the Quick 2x charger, the battery can be lifted to full capacity in two hours. A combination of 19-inch front and 16-inch rear will help the XU navigate poorly maintained urban streets, and the upright seating position gives a clear view of traffic ahead. Top speed is 65 mph for short bursts.

Zero S ZF 9   ENGINE TYPE: Electric BATTERY: Lithium-ion CAPACITY: 9.0 kWh TRANSMISSION: Clutchless 1-speed WHEELBASE: 56.6 inches RAKE: 23.1 degrees WEIGHT: 341 pounds PRICE: $13,995   Playing the supermoto/streetfighter role in the Zero lineup, the S ZF9 features the latest high capacity Li-Ion battery, which gives it a range of 114 miles per charge in the city, and 63 miles at a constant 70 mph. Charging the S ZF9 takes 2.4 hours with a Quick 4x charger, and requires 95c worth of electricity. The pack is claimed take 3,000 charges before dropping to 80-percent of its original capacity. The frame and swingarm are made of aluminum, and 38mm inverted forks are adjustable for both compression and rebound damping.

Zero DSZF 9 ENGINE TYPE: Electric BATTERY: Lithium-ion CAPACITY: 9.0 kWh TRANSMISSION: Clutchless 1-speed SUSP. TVL. f/r: 9.4"/7.7" SEAT HEIGHT: 35.3 inches WEIGHT: 341 pounds PRICE: $13,995   Featuring a top speed of 80 miles per hour and a range of 112 miles in town (62 miles at a steady 70 mph), the DS is a street-friendly dual-sport electric motorcycle. Recharging the powerpack to full capacity takes under two-and-a-half hours with the Quick 4x charger. The 17-inch front/16-inch rear combo isn’t serious for offroading, and the 341-pound weight is substantial. An aluminum frame and swingarm is matched to 38mm inverted forks and a no-link rear shock. A smaller, lower-capacity power pack is available, which reduces range, performance, weight, and price.

Yamaha Super Tenere   ENGINE TYPE: DOHC inline-twin BORE x STROKE 98.0mm x 79.5mm TRANSMISSION: 6-speed RAKE: 28 degrees SEAT HEIGHT: 34.25 inches SUSPENSION f/r: 7.5"/7.5" WET WEIGHT: 575 pounds PRICE: $14,790   A successful model in Europe that has spawned an American cult demanding its release, the 2013 Yamaha Super Tenere gets moving thanks to a DOHC 1200cc parallel twin powerplant with a dirt-friendly 270-degree crank. The throttle is fly-by-wire and traction control is built into the system, plus the brakes have ABS. To keep the motor on the same page as the rider, there are two power settings—T-Mode for touring and S-mode for sport. A six-speed transmission means there will be a gear for everything from a trail in the woods to the Interstate. A height-adjustable seat and a wide variety of factory accessories, including bags and impact protection.

Yamaha WR 250 R

Yamaha WR 250 R   ENGINE TYPE: DOHC single BORE x STROKE: 77mm x 53.6mm COMP. RATIO: 11.8:1 TRANSMISSION: 6-speed WHEELBASE: 55.9 inches SUSPENSION f/r: 10.6"/10.6" WET WEIGHT: 298 pounds PRICE: $6690   Rooted in the YZ250F motocrosser and off-roading WR250F, the street-legal Yamaha WR250R is a highly sophisticated dirt-worthy machine. Fuel injection is an unusual feature on a bike this size and category, and it feeds a liquid-cooled, DOHC, four-valve single with titanium intake valves. Power peaks at a staggering 10,000 rpm, so it helps to keep the bike on song. Variable exhaust and intake valves make the most of the highly oversquare e-start engine. Not all motor, the WR250R has fully adjustable suspension, with a USD fork and linkage rear shock, and an aluminum frame.

Yamaha FZ 6 R

Author: admin on 14-07-2013, 12:45
Yamaha FZ 6 R ENGINE TYPE: DOHC inline-4 BORE x STROKE: 65.5mm x 44.5mm COMP. RATIO: 12.2:1 TRANSMISSION: 6-speed WHEELBASE: 56.7 inches RAKE: 26 degrees WET WEIGHT: 470 pounds PRICE: $7790   We had only one serious complaint about the FZ6 that the new FZ6R has replaced— the motor lacked bottom end power, making it difficult to ride the FZ6 at anything but a white-knuckle pace. The FZ6R fixed that problem, giving the bike a boost on the bottom end and a smooth powerband that is extremely forgiving. You can still ride the FZ6R hard and have a rewarding experience, but this in-line four can now do so much more. It can be a great commuter or local sport-tourer, and returning riders will love it.

Yamaha YZF - R6

Author: admin on 14-07-2013, 12:44
Yamaha YZF - R6   ENGINE TYPE: DOHC inline-4 BORE x STROKE: 67mm x 42.5mm COMP. RATIO: 13.1:1 TRANSMISSION: 6-speed WHEELBASE: 54.1 inches RAKE: 24 degrees WET WEIGHT: 417 pounds PRICE: $11,190   While it has not been updated for 2013, the Yamaha YZF-R6 remains a formidable midsize 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 R6 is outstanding on both the street and track. High-end 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.

Top-shelf features on the bike include a custom suede seat, a Freedom 106/6 motor with diamond cut cylinders, custom highway bars, plus lots of black and gray. The air/oil-cooled long-stroke motor has a 50-degree V and dual 45mm throttle bodies.

Victory Vegas 8 - Ball   ENGINE TYPE: SOHC V-twin BORE x STROKE: 101mm x 108mm TRANSMISSION: 6-speed WHEELBASE: 67.1 inches RAKE: 33 degrees SEAT HEIGHT: 25.2 inches DRY WEIGHT: 638 pounds PRICE: $12,499   With form-fitting fenders, swirling wheels, and traditional forks, the Vegas 8-Ball is blacked out to contrast the glitz of the world’s gambling capital. The Freedom 106/6 powers this sleek cruiser, and a carbon-fiber reinforced belt delivers power to the 180mm Dunlop rear tire. The 67.1-inch wheelbase and 33-degree rack ensures a steady ride, and a 4.5-gallon fuel tank gives the Vegas 8-Ball a generous range.

This bike is all about a serious custom look, with three different paint treatments available. In the rear, there’s a 250 tire showing itself to all who follow, and an aggressive 21-inch billet wheel in the front. The Jackpot has chrome forks and triple clamps. A six-speed overdrive transmission takes power from the potent Freedom 106/6 Stage 2 V-Twin, motor and send a peak of 113 ft/lbs of torque to the fat rear tire.
