MV Agusta has been on a roll with the launch of some of its stunning creations at the EICMA 2019. Another motorcycle added to the launch list is the MV Agusta Rush 1000, the cafe streetfighter based on the Brutale 1000 RR. The naked motorcycle has been specifically designed to represent the ideal drag racing machine while the unique designing sets it apart from all of the streetfighters ever made.

The brand has equipped the motorcycle with extra premium bits that will justify its hefty price tag. The motorcycle features an SC-Project exhaust system that has been curated into a dual can pipe design flowing towards the rear. The MV Agusta Rush 1000 features Ohlins electronic suspension at either end while the braking duties are handled by 320mm disc brakes mated to Brembo Stylema callipers at the front and a 260mm disc at the rear.

Coming to the design, the motorcycle features an MV Agusta RVS #1 custom-built motorcycle-inspired round headlight unit adding to its premium streetfighter stance. The major use of carbon fibre detailing goes all the way up to the rear wheel cover which further encapsulates the forged aluminium wheel mounted on the swingarm.

Powering the MV Agusta Rush 1000 is the Brutale 1000 RR-inspired four-cylinder engine that is capable to generate a maximum power of 208HP and a peak torque of 116.5Nm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission.

The pricing and availability details of the motorcycle have not been revealed yet though, considering the superior performance and the splendid design, one can sure bet it to be a bit expensive as well as limited to only a few production units. There is no official confirmation whether the premium cafe streetfighter will be available in India or not.

Kawasaki in collaboration with Bimota has given birth to the Supercharged Tesi H2 motorcycle which has been officially unveiled at the EICMA 2019. The Japanese brand Kawasaki has recently bought a 49.9% stake in Bimota, the popular Italian motorcycle manufacturer. Based on the supercharged 998cc Kawasaki H2, the Tesi H2 features a double swingarm chassis, borrowed from the Bimota machines.

The chassis of the Bimota Tesi H2 is a real innovation with the front suspension capable to move in completely different directions. This system has exceptional features as during heavy braking the wheelbase remains the same as the forks don’t operate like the old school telescopic units and further offer greater stability. Though the power output of the inline 4-cylinder engine has not been revealed by the brand, one can expect the supercharger to offer a minimum of 240HP while it can vary all the way up to 300HP.

In terms of the premium designing, the excessive use of carbon fibre across the body panels is something to look out for while the use of aluminium bits further adds to its noteworthy appeal. The front fairing design has been borrowed from the Vyrus 986 M2 while the Bimota Tesi H2 features the winglets integrated into the fairing in a clean manner. The impressive placement of carbon fibre air duct on the side accentuates its supercharged design language.

The brand has offered the motorcycle with Ohlins electronic suspension on either side while the disc brakes are mated to Brembo-sourced callipers at the front wheel. Kawasaki has not yet revealed the pricing details of the Supercharged Tesi H2 though, the comeback of Bimota is officially going to result in an aggressive price tag.

The Bimota Tesi H2 is limited to a few production units while the customers can avail it in the United Kingdom by mid-2020. The chances of the availability of the supercharged motorcycle in the Indian market are rather thin and as of yet, no official confirmation has been made regarding the launch of the Tesi H2 in India.

Honda has officially revealed the CBR1000RR-R and CBR1000RR-R SP track-focused superbikes that are by far the most technology-advanced motorcycles to be ever realised by the Japanese brand. Specifically designed with the help of HRC (Honda Racing Corporation), the brand promises the all-new Fireblade variants to be born for redefining racing itself.

Taking inspiration from the aerodynamics package of the Honda RC213V, the all-new Honda CBR1000RR-R is equipped with a more powerful Euro5-compliant 999.9cc 4-cylinder liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine. The superbike is now capable of generating a maximum power figure of 214HP @ 14,500 rpm and a peak torque of 113Nm @ 12,500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

The motorcycle has been further equipped with a full-colour TFT display adding to its superiority while the Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) offered to the Fireblade allows gaining the slip rate control. The brand has equipped the motorcycle with three riding modes in addition to allowing the rider to customize the power and brakes.

Coming to the SP variant of the Honda CBR1000RR-R, the motorcycle has been offered second-gen 43mm front forks by Ohlins in addition to getting extra Brembo callipers to make it more track-focused in comparison to the standard variant. The rear of the motorcycle has been equipped with Ohlins TTX36 Smart-EC monoshock unit. The braking duties on the motorcycle are handled by Brembo Stylema four-piston radial callipers at the front while the brand had equipped the rear with Brembo monoblock calliper borrowed from the Honda RC213V-S.

The brand is offering the Honda CBR1000RR-R and SP in Grand Prix Red and Matte Pearl Black colour variants, both equipped with a titanium Akrapovic exhaust as standard. If and when launched in India, the motorcycles will feature a BS6-compliant engine, catering to the new emission norms. The pricing and availability details of the motorcycles are still to be unveiled by the brand in the coming days.

Another one of the most foreseen motorcycles from the Japanese brand, the Kawasaki Z H2 has been officially unveiled at the 46th Annual Tokyo Motor Show. The naked variant of the Ninja H2 superbike, which was launched back in 2015, the Z H2 supercharged motorcycle features almost identical design language in addition to excellent performance.

The motorcycle has been specifically designed with a lighter frame that is easy to handle on the road while at the same time it offers better speed characteristics. The brand has offered the naked motorcycle with various other premium features to stand it apart from its fully-faired sibling.

Some motorcycle modifications are bound to blow your mind with the overall result. One such modification of Bajaj Pulsar NS200 into Kawasaki Z1000 by Leeat Motor from Vietnam has made to our “worth-mentioning” list. The modifiers have offered a quite aggressive look to the motorcycle that matches perfectly with the highly-aggressive Kawasaki Z1000 naked sports machine.

Coming to the front design, the motorcycle gets an edgy headlight plus visor setup inspired from the Z1000 while the custom fuel tank adds to its superior looks. The modifiers have offered the motorcycle with yellow and black detailing on the fuel tank to keep its authentic looks alive. The custom belly pan set up in addition to the wide tyres further offers the modified motorcycle a beast look. Apart from these, the front mudguard of the motorcycle has also been lifted a little bit higher.

In terms of rear profile, the modification of NS200 into Kawasaki Z1000 gets custom body panels at the rear while the stock exhaust has been replaced with a custom exhaust system flowing towards the rear. In addition to this, the tail light has also been offered a sleeker look. The modifiers have also equipped the motorcycle with a custom seat setup with a sharper pillion end.

Apart from the cosmetic changes to the body panels, there aren’t any mechanical changes made to the motorcycle. It continues to be powered by a 199.5cc, single-cylinder engine that is capable of generating a maximum power figure of 23.5HP at 9500 rpm and a peak torque of 18.3 Nm at 8000 rpm.

The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks upfront while the rear gets a monoshock absorber. The motorcycle continues to feature disc brake at either end while LeeAT Motor has equipped this modified Pulsar NS200 with a Z1000-inspired all-digital instrument console.

Yamaha R15 V2 owners know the feeling of riding a young supersport motorcycle and each one of them must have imagined how a similar genre flagship would look under their possession. Taking the front seat here, a Vietnam-based modifier has converted the second generation Yamaha R15 into a BMW HP4 Race.

The motorcycle featured here feels slightly different as the front and rear wheels have been kept stock to avoid engine overkill. The front fascia is derived from the INR 86.70 lakh BMW HP4 Race, leaving the headlights behind for this aerodynamically efficient fairing and golden USD front forks.

Unlike the BMW HP4 Race, this modified R15 features the much-celebrated pillion seat. However, the high tail design of the R15 V2 has helped the motorcycle look like a proper race bike. The modifier has used decorative faux carbon fibre parts to add more sporty feel into the product.

In fact, the addition of frame sliders on both sides will protect the fragile side panels during a sudden fall. The side fairing of the motorcycle features HP4 and BMW monikers while the seat used here comes with better padding than the stock model of the BMW HP4 Race for more comfort-filled hours on the track.

The exhaust used here is different from the original one on the BMW HP4 Race but this one is also equally impressive in terms of exhaust sound and design improvement. The effect of this Akrapovic unit is unknown as performance values for the motorcycle are not yet available.

Even though the 149cc engine on the R15 V2 is good for 17 HP, the level of attention paid while making this motorcycle confirms that eyeballs will roll with its tyres on every road for sure.

The braking also stays stock, leaving this Yamaha-based HP4 Race with a single front and rear disc, that too without any other addition except for the Brembo master cylinder. Here is the complete photo gallery of the Yamaha R15 V2, which has been modified to look like a BMW HP4 Race.

The Yamaha R15 V3 you see here has taken the extreme route of modification and got itself an R1M-inspired look. However, the changes are totally visual and more importantly, based on a kit that can be mounted or removed. The kit comes with a custom headlight setup with huge bubble visor, redesigned side fairing and a completely new tail section with an in-built backrest.

The rear section of the sportbike also flaunts effective winglets while the front can be seen with a custom fender. The taillight and turn indicators are neatly studded into the new panels. The R15 V3 seen here is an Indonesia-spec model as one can spot the USD front forks and rear aluminium footpeg holders.

Yamaha R15 has served as a base for hundreds of modifications in the past decade and some of the owners have gone to the next level by adding technology to their examples. Here, the primary focus was to achieve R1M styling and that too by not altering any performance-related components of the R15 V3.

The impressive shade looks even better in the low light conditions. The modifier has used precisely-placed stickers to highlight the overall design upgrade. The centre section of the fuel tank is wrapped in black shade for the perfect contrast.

At present, the Yamaha R15 V3 can be had in four different shades in India, that too with 2-channel ABS as a stock feature. The base model of the sportbike is available for INR 1.40 lakh (ex-showroom) while the top-end Monster Energy MotoGP edition is priced at INR 1.43 lakh.

The most powerful motorcycle of its kind, the stock version of R15 V3 can produce 19.3 HP of maximum power and claims 0-100 kph in around 12 seconds. The modified model seen here comes with premium tires while the use of huge panels at both the front and rear end makes the wheelbase feel puny in comparison to the stock model.

According to the recent reports, all the 300 production units of MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Serie Oro, being claimed as “the most desirable and anticipated bike of 2020”, has been officially sold out. The motorcycle was officially unleashed at the EICMA in November 2018, leaving the viewers stunned with its unique design. The brand recently revealed the pricing for the motorcycle in the European market in June. The powerful streetfighter was available at a price tag of €42,990 (INR 33.77 lakh, direct conversion).

The model carries design inspiration from the original Brutale design by Massimo Tamburini. The production-spec streetfighters are available with lower overall output in comparison to their faired counterparts but Brutale 1000 Serie Oro is an exception from this trend. The powerful engine used here is good for 212HP of maximum output in the stock form.

The 4-1-4 exhaust system from SC-Project even looks the best with this minimalistic design. The power was achieved after using the combustion and other properties from the WSBK F4 RC bike. The four-cylinder engine uses 13.4:1 compression ratio and measures 998cc in displacement.

The combustion chamber has been redesigned for better efficiency while camshaft timing was also changed to achieve an overall increase in performance. The compression rings are all-new, improving internal component life and taking performance to an all-new level. The bike weighs 186kg in the standard condition further losing 2kg with the race kit.

The weight values are dry while adding fuel to the motorcycle will touch the 200kg mark. MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Serie Oro comes with 5-inch TFT display, eight-level traction control, up/down quick-shifter and wheelie control. The addition of launch control guarantees perfect superbike starts to the rider.
The brand offers carbon fibre wheels, aerodynamic wings and much more to improve the overall riding character.

The brakes are from Brembo while Ohlins supply the suspension components. The body panels are also made from carbon fibre to reduce the overall weight of Serie Oro. Being targeted for a special set of customers, the brand is planning on using the same platform of the limited edition motorcycle to churn out more affordable products which will be produced in mass numbers across several international as well as Asian markets.
