KessTech - 4 years warranty on everything


4 years warranty on everything - No part of the exhaust excluded!

The year has just started and after the Indian release there is already the second sensation from the development team of KessTech:  4 years warranty on everything!  Until the end of 2019 there was already a 4 year warranty on our adjusters and a 2 year warranty on the remaining parts of the exhaust system if you didn't have an engine tuning.  What exactly changes?  For all systems delivered from 2020, there is now automatically, without extra charge and small print, a 4 year warranty on everything. We are the only manufacturer who gives a 4 year warranty on absolutely everything! No matter if it’s the valve, the electronics, the handlebar switch, the coating, ... Really everything, without exceptions or special conditions for single parts.  Why do we do this? Because we can! We are the inventor of adjustable exhaust systems with EU type approval. We are the ones with the longest experience. We carry out continuous tests which confirm that our systems can easily withstand these 4 years. Therefore, we give you our quality promise: 4 years warranty on everything! No additional or new special conditions! We have updated our terms and conditions. See www.kesstech.de/en.
 

Live your moment.

TRIUMPH KEERT TERUG OP MOTORBEURS UTRECHT


 TRIUMPH KEERT TERUG OP MOTORBEURS UTRECHT

Na afwezigheid van een aantal jaren heeft Triumph Motorcycles Benelux besloten om terug te keren naar de Motorbeurs van 20 t/m 23 februari in Utrecht. Ondank de zeer succesvolle TRIUMPH PREVIEW EVENTS, waarbij Triumph haar nieuwste modellen in een vroegtijdig stadium toont aan dealers, hun VIP’s en consumenten, bleef de vraag uit de markt voor aanwezigheid op de Motorbeurs toch bestaan. TRIUMPH zal aanwezig zijn in (importeurs) hal 7 met een selectie van de nieuwste 2020 modellen als: Rocket 3 R, Rocket 3 GT, Tiger 900 Rally Pro, Tiger 900 GT Pro en de compleet nieuwe Street Triple-serie (RS/R & S). Tevens zullen onze dealers (Blom Motoren Leusden, ROKE Motors Mijdrecht, Motorcentrum Bruurs en Motorcentrum Eibergen) vertegenwoordigd zijn met een selectie aan nieuwe en jong gebruikte Triumph’s.

Cees de Rooij, general manager Triumph Motorcycles Benelux, is verheugd om weer terug te keren. “Het feit dat de markt vraagt om je aanwezigheid is een goed teken. Niet alleen onze dealers, maar ook veel consumenten wilden dat Triumph niet ontbrak tijdens de “opening” van het motorseizoen. Een moment waar veel motorrijders naar uitkijken. Aangezien steeds meer merken terugkeren dit jaar is het belangrijk voor de bezoekers een compleet beeld krijgen van het aanbod voor komend seizoen. Triumph mag daarbij zeker niet ontbreken. Een nieuwe opzet in samenwerking met onze dealers en de combinatie van nieuw en jong gebruikt moet de bezoekers verassen en keuze geven.We kijken er naar uit om zowel onze bestaande klanten als nieuwe prospects te ontvangen op onze stand”.

DUCATI CLOSES 2019 ON A HIGH, WITH BIKE SALES TOPPING 53,000

DUCATI CLOSES 2019 ON A HIGH, 
WITH BIKE SALES TOPPING 53,000
53,183 Ducati bikes delivered to customers in 90 countries


Italy remains the number one market. Double-digit growth in China, Brazil and Spain
For the second year running, the Panigale is the world's best-selling superbike. A record number of advance orders for the new Streetfighter V4, with deliveries to begin in March 2020
Borgo Panigale, Bologna, 14 January 2020 – Ducati Motor Holding closes 2019 with 53,183 bikes delivered to customers worldwide, nudging last year's figure of 53,004 bikes even higher.

A major contribution to this result came from the Panigale: with sales totalling 8,304, it retains the market leadership established in 2018 and confirms its status as the world's best-selling superbike with a market share of 25%.



Two new bikes introduced in 2019 - the Hypermotard 950 and Diavel 1260 - racked up sales of 4,472 and 3,129 respectively, doubling the overall volumes achieved in 2018 by previous versions. The Multistrada family performed equally well, scoring a 3% increase compared to 2018 (thanks also to the addition of the 950 S and a revamped 1260 Enduro); deliveries totalled 12,160, the best sales performance since the Bologna-built multibike made its debut sixteen years ago.

Sales figures for 2019 have reinforced Ducati's position at the premium end of the motorcycle market.

Claudio Domenicali, CEO of Ducati Motor Holding

"2019 was a tough but also rewarding year. We're working to make Ducati the world's most desired motorcycle brand”, stated Claudio Domenicali, CEO of Ducati Motor Holding, “and the results we're achieving, the development of the range and the market response all confirm we're on the right track. On today's global market, one in every four superbikes is now a Panigale. The technical content we've transferred from the R version and our extensive racing experience to the V4 2020 range ensure this bike remains the category benchmark. What's more, order books for the new Streetfighter V4 are bulging - more than 1,700 are already on order - and deliveries will begin in March 2020".



Francesco Milicia, Global Sales VP

"We're satisfied with the results achieved in 2019”, adds Francesco Milicia, Global Sales VP. “Over the last twelve months a major network development plan has been implemented, with 54 new dealerships in 20 countries. This expansion plan will continue this year in order to further improve the world-wide network coverage and offer our fans a growing premium experience.”


Sales in Italy continue to grow, confirming the country as Ducati’s number one market. sales totalled 9,474, a 3% improvement on 2018 and a 20% increase over the last three years. In the United States, Ducati deliveries totalled 7,682 motorcycles, down by just 2% despite the continuing negative trend which saw the market shrink by 7% compared to 2018.
Brazil (+20%), Spain (+10%) and France (+8%), however, performed exceedingly well. China, a country where the Italian brand is particularly appreciated, continued the upward trend of recent years and is, with 3,200 motorcycles sold (+12%), now the Bologna-based bike manufacturer's fifth most important market.



This positive end to 2019 allows Ducati to look into the future with confidence. For 2020, the product range is now even more complete and dealerships will soon be taking delivery of the long-awaited Streetfighter V4. The Panigale can - in addition to the introduction of the new V2 - also count on a major upgrade to the V4 that will boost performance and enhance rideability.
For globetrotters and those who want to enjoy long-distance adventures in outstanding comfort, the Multistrada family sees the arrival of the new Grand Tour and the extension of the warranty to 4 years.

Last but not least, the Ducati Scrambler range - which saw the new 800 Dark presented at EICMA - will see the introduction of a new model in the coming months.

New Euro 5 Environmental Standard

New Euro 5 Environmental Standard 

Enters into Force January 1st 2020 for all New Motorcycles and Mopeds in Europe


As of 1 January 2020, all new type-approved motorcycles and mopeds sold in the European Union (EU) and the European Free Trade Area (EFTA) will have to meet the new Euro 5 environmental standard, replacing the current Euro 4 specification.
For existing moped and motorcycle models type-approved before the 1 January 2020, Euro 5 will become mandatory as of the first day of 2021. This brings the pollutant emissions of L-category vehicles (i.e. mopeds, motorcycles, tricycles and quadricycles) to the same level as Euro 6 cars.

In a release dated December 16th, ACEM, the Brussels based international motorcycle trade association in Europe said that "technical innovation in the motorcycle industry has played a key role in progressively lowering vehicle emissions. Since the introduction of the Euro 1 standard for motorcycles and mopeds in 1999, pollutant emissions have been drastically reduced. Combined emissions of hydrocarbons (HC) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) have gone down by 96.6%, whilst carbon monoxide (CO) emissions have been reduced by 92.3%.
"Under the new Euro 5 standard, tailpipe emissions of mopeds, motorcycles, tricycles and quadricycles will not be allowed to exceed 1,000 mg/km of carbon monoxide (CO), 100 mg/km total hydrocarbons (THC), 68 mg/km non-methane hydrocarbons (NMHC), 60 mg/km of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and 4.5 mg/km of particulate matter (PM). These Euro 5 tailpipe pollutant emission limits are the same as those of Euro 6 for cars.
"The new Euro 5 standard that will replace the previous one (Euro 4) will become mandatory for all new type-approved motorcycles and mopeds as of 1 January 2020. Some niche segments (i.e. enduro and trial motorcycles, three-wheeled mopeds designed for utility purposes and light quadrimobiles) have been granted additional lead time. These niche products will have to comply with the new Euro 5 tailpipe emissions limits as of 1 January 2024.


Antonio Perlot, ACEM Secretary General: "From a supply side perspective, vehicle technology has been instrumental in improving the environmental performance of motorcycles."

"Durability provisions and evaporative emission levels are equally becoming more stringent. Another important innovation is the progressive introduction of a second stage on-board diagnostic (OBD), allowing advanced identification and flagging of malfunction and deterioration of emission control systems."
Antonio Perlot, ACEM Secretary General, said: "From a supply side perspective, vehicle technology has been instrumental in improving the environmental performance of motorcycles. ACEM members have invested heavily in research and product development to develop Euro 5 compliant motorcycles equipped with technologies such as 3-way catalysts with oxygen sensor controls, complex electronic engine management systems, advanced fuel injection and variable valve timing and lift technologies.
"As a result of this, the environmental performance of Euro 5 motorcycles will be equivalent to that of Euro 6 cars. ACEM sees this fitting within the vision of the recent European Green Deal of achieving less polluting transport, especially in cities, and further enabling the contribution of our range of vehicles to a multimodal transport system."

BMW Motorrad tien jaar marktleider.

BMW Motorrad tien jaar marktleider.
 
Nog nooit eerder vertoonde prestatie in geschiedenis van BMW Motorrad
 recordverkoop in Nederland in 2019
 BMW R 1250 GS constante verkooptopper.


BMW Motorrad heeft het klaargespeeld om tien jaar overall marktleider te worden. Een prestatie die door geen enkel ander land is geleverd in de bijna honderd jarige geschiedenis van BMW Motorrad. Bovendien werd het 2002-verkooprecord van 2018 al op 25 oktober 2019 verbroken. Op de laatste dag van het jaar eindigde de teller op 2.302 registraties. 123 meer dan de directe concurrent en nummer 2 in de markt Yamaha.


“Deze exceptionele prestatie betekent dat onze dealers behoren tot de beste van Nederland, én de wereld”, aldus Tom Crooijmans, Head of BMW Motorrad. “Tegelijkertijd hebben zij samen met mijn team op een consistente wijze keihard gewerkt om ook in het tiende opeenvolgende jaar de concurrentie voor te blijven en deze ultieme overwinning te behalen. Maar het allerbelangrijkste is het vertrouwen dat wij als BMW Motorrad al jarenlang van onze trouwe klanten mogen ontvangen. Zij hebben de afgelopen jaren keer op keer voor onze producten gekozen en ons deze zege gebracht. Wij zetten uiteraard alles op alles om ook in de toekomst aan hun hoge verwachtingen te blijven voldoen.”

Stefanie Wurst, Algemeen Directeur BMW Group Nederland: “Ik ben heel trots op het BMW Motorrad team en de gehele dealerorganisatie. De achttien BMW Motorrad dealers hebben heel veel geïnvesteerd in professionalisering, automatiseringsprocessen en systemen en dat betaalt zich nu uit. BMW Motorrad is veel meer dan een motorfietsfabrikant. Wij leveren een beleving, een ervaring en dat in een land als Nederland dat vele culturen kent. Het is daarom heel goed om te zien dat elke dealer haar eigen identiteit behoudt die aansluit bij haar klanten.”
Bij BMW Motorrad is er voor elke categorie motorrijder een machine die tot in detail is ontwikkeld en beproefd voor een specifieke beleving van motorrijden. Van Heritage, Roadster en Urban Mobility tot Sport, Tour en Adventure. Crooijmans vervolgt: “De BMW R 1250 GS is ons paradepaard en het model dat in het afgelopen decennium ons succes voor een groot deel heeft bepaald. Heel veel motorliefhebbers in Nederland kiezen voor deze avonturenmachine. Het is een motorfiets waarmee je net zo gemakkelijk een wereldreis maakt, als dagelijks op en neer naar je werk rijdt.”

Voor duurzaam succes, blijven focus en ontwikkeling ontzettend belangrijk. Crooijmans: “Buiten de introductie van nieuwe modellen of met het betreden van het cruiser segment met de R 18 later dit jaar, zullen we ook onze digitale focus verder ontwikkelen om te waarborgen dat élke klant op élk moment de beleving en ervaring krijgt die hij of zij mag verwachten van BMW Motorrad.”

Staged at the Jacob Kravitz Center during the New York Progressive International Motorcycle Show (December 6 - 8), the second of eight 2019/2020 season J&P Cycles' Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Shows (UBCBS) series saw George Stinsman of Chaos Cycle (Shirley, New York) scoop the win in the Freestyle Class with 'Chaos Cycle Café' - featuring an exhaust swingarm, custom gas tank, oil tank/fender, wheels and Chaos Cycle triple tree (valued at $40,000).
Celebrating its tenth successive year, the J&P Cycles sponsored UBCBS series is expected to feature some 300 plus custom motorcycles, with more than $70,000 up for grabs in cash and prizes. This year’s categories include Custom Classic, Custom Street, Freestyle and People’s Choice.
Judged by a panel of industry experts, winners in each city along the IMS tour will be invited to compete in the championship round taking place February 9, 2020 in Chicago for a chance to be crowned “King of the Builders.”
“Custom building is one of the most creative outlets our industry has to offer, and the Progressive International Motorcycle Shows offer the ideal platform for builders to showcase their work on a national stage,” said Bob Kay, Director of UBCBS. “Not only are the motorcycles strikingly ornate, but it’s an incredible opportunity for the motorcycle enthusiast community to learn about and appreciate the unique story behind the creation of each build.”

Corbin Solo Saddle Indian Scout Bobber Twenty



 Solo Saddle
Indian Scout Bobber Twenty






Corbin created a seat design that fits perfectly with the factory built Bobber Twenty now available from Indian in the Scout lineup. The vintage "saddle" shape is designed to be mounted directly to the Twenty's metal base adapter just like the OEM unit. In case you're wondering, "Yes" you can mount this seat to your regular Scout Bobber if you pickup the adapter from your local Indian dealer.
As you can tell in the photos, our seat design fits in perfectly with the Bobber culture. The similarities end at the visual appeal.
Corbin's solo is built up on a Fibertech base to provide a rigid foundation for the carefully designed foam shape. Our exclusive Comfort Cell foam provides a firm, supportive ride for miles of support. Naturally, the seat shaping has been ergonomically shaped to provide
