World Ducati Week 2014: een enorm succes

WDW2014 evenaarde het record bezoekersaantal van 2012, van 65.000 Ducatisti, ondanks dat het een dag korter was
Dit unieke Ducati evenement op het “Marco Simoncelli” Misano World Circuit eindigt na 3 dagen vol shows, sensatie… en duizenden motorfietsen
De Scrambler area trok veel publiek: drie dagen lang was er een onafgebroken stroom van liefhebbers die wachtten op hun beurt voor een sneak preview van het prototype



Misano Adriatico, 24 juli 2014 – De achtste editie van de World Ducati Week, de internationale, tweejaarlijkse Ducati bijeenkomst die talloze Ducati liefhebbers uit de hele wereld aantrekt, is een geweldig succes geweest, waarbij tienduizenden motorrijders op het “Marco Simoncelli” Misano Word Circuit sensationele dagen hebben beleefd. Vrijdag 18 tot en met zondag 20 juli stonden in het teken van loyaliteit, passie en liefde voor de in Borgo Panigale, Bologna, Italië gebouwde motoren. 

Hun passie wordt het best geïllustreerd door de cijfers: ongeveer 65.000 mensen woonden deze 3-daagse editie bij, gelijk aan het record dat werd behaald in 2012, toen de WDW een vierdaags evenement was. De deelnemers kwamen uit vijf continenten en 56 verschillende landen. En dat is niet alles: 60% van de bezoekers mag Italiaan zijn geweest, maar het is de andere 40% die de wereldwijde aantrekkingskracht van Ducati bevestigt. Er kwamen Ducatisti uit de VS, Europa, Australië, Rusland en India. Anderen reisden vanuit Brazilië, China en Maleisië. Sommigen zelfs,

Een “Gouden” initiatief voor de (wees)kinderen in de Golden Triangle van Thailand.

Een “Gouden” initiatief voor de (wees)kinderen in de Golden Triangle van Thailand.

Eind 2013 introduceerde Yamaha Motor Nederland de nieuwe Yamaha XV950R en Yamaha XV950, twee ‘’no-nonsense” motoren. Elk met een unieke uitstraling en persoonlijkheid en om het trotse gevoel dat een nieuwe eigenaar heeft bij het rijden met een XV950 extra te benadrukken, wilde Yamaha Motor Nederland dat ook op een speciale manier tot uitdrukking brengen.


Om dit te bereiken wordt van een XV950R één wel zeer uniek exemplaar gemaakt. Deze unieke Yamaha zal worden geveild via Catawiki van vrijdag 29 augustus t/m maandag 8 september 2014 (kijk voor meer informatie op www.catawiki.nl/schiffmacher), waarbij de opbrengst geschonken wordt aan de Stichting Creating Changes Nederland.


Hoe wordt deze Yamaha XV950R  tot een uniek model gemaakt?
Henk Schiffmacher, wereldberoemd vanwege zijn tatoeëren, ontwerpen en schilderen, heeft naar eigen ontwerp een XV950R beschilderd. Dit exclusieve model zal voor het eerst tijdens de jaarlijkse Custom en Cruiserdag van Motor Centrum West op zaterdag 16 augustus in Naaldwijk

New Drag Specialties Seats

Drag Specialties seats selection

DRAG SPECIALTIES now has a version of its 2-Up Predator seat available to fit Victory touring models. The new seat not only features custom stitching, it also has a unique shape that uses flexible polyurethane foam for comfort on long cross-country rides. 
The company’s patented solar-reflective leather used in the seating area is claimed to reduce surface temperature by as much as 25 degrees, offering a cooler seat, higher durability and longer life over conventional leather or vinyl.



Carpeting is used on the bottom of the 3/16in ABS thermoformed seat base to protect the bike’s paint, and the seats will also fit with OEM sissy bars. 
The 2-Up Predator seat fits most ‘10-‘13 Victory Cross Country and Tour, Cross Roads and Hardball bikes. 
Continuing with its selection of seats for Harley models, Drag Specialties Seats has a new Touring option. Along with crusade stitching, this seat has an improved shape, using flexible urethane foam. The solar-reflective leather, carpeting on the 3/16in ABS thermoformed seat base and rubber bumpers help protect paint and are all standard.
The driver area is cut narrow in the front and is approximately 1in lower than the stock seat, and it works with Drag Specialties Seats driver backrest kit/pads and the OEM frame-mounted driver backrest mechanism and backrest pad. The seat is available to fit ‘09-‘14 FLHT, FLHX, FLHR, FLTR and FL trike models. 


Another seat option that employs solar-reflective leather in the seating area is the Low Solo seat for use on Dyna models. This seat is said to have a lower profile and improved fit. In addition, optional rear pillions are available in matching styles and feature EZ on and off system for simple install and removal. All Dyna Glide Low Solo seats come smooth or with a flame-stitched design, and are available to fit most ‘96-‘14 Harley Dyna Glide FXD, FXDWG and FLD models.


Included in the selection of new saddle options from Drag Specialties Seats is the small low-profile spring solo seat. It features a heavy steel contoured base with black finish, and includes an adjustable front seat hinge and two rear mount studs for springs. The inner construction of the seat is made of 1/2in closed-cell foam, and a variety of leather or vinyl styles are available.

Corbin Dual Touring Saddle for Harley-Davidson Streetglide Trike

Corbin Introduces Dual Touring Saddle
 for 2009 - 2013 Harley-Davidson Streetglide Trike 

Hollister, CA – The most generously sculpted seating available! Designed specifically to fit the Streetglide Trike and provide the greatest ergonomic advantage for touring quality support. Wide, sculpted seating positions create a larger area of contact for excellent weight distribution. Shaped like your body to eliminate pressure points and give long lasting support that will keep you in the saddle all day. 


Corbin's rigid Fibertech basepan provides a perfect fit and is built low to hug the frame and conceal the gaps in the bodywork for a clean look. Corbin created a foam shape that keeps you in the sweet spot which provides a more positive feeling of control. Deep, supportive bucket design gives four and a half inches of vertical support. Passenger seating area has also been maximized for a greater area of body contact and best weight distribution. All of this adds up to a very relaxed posture and comfortable ride so you'll be able to go out and put some serious miles on your ride.  



Inside, Corbin’s exclusive Comfort Cell foam provides firm support that stays resilient indefinitely. It is nearly twice as firm as the stock foam to support your body weight. Soft foam allows your body to fall through it the longer you sit on it... once compressed, soft foam offers no
