Davida DOT approved Speedster Helmet V3 to launch at New York IMS

Davida DOT approved Speedster Helmet V3 
to launch at New York IMS 

Well known British specialist motorcycle helmet manufacturer Davida released an updated road-legal version of their Speedster helmet at INTERMOT in Cologne in October.

As one of the few helmets available of any kind with dual European and U.S. DOT approvals, never mind one that hits the Cafe Racer style open-face sweet-spot, the Speedster v3 is bound to be just as big a hit as it was at INTERMOT, when distributor 9MC (Greenville, South Carolina) gives the Speedster v3 its North American debut at the New York International Motorcycle Show (Javit Center, December 9 - 11, 2016) in two weeks’ time. 

Dual marked with ECE R22-05 & DOT FMVSS No 218, the new Speedster v3 retains all the features of Davida’s original Speedster helmet, with the same low profile shell shape and an improved traditional leather lined interior, which can now be removed for cleaning or replacement. Replacement leather liners are available in black, brown or nut-brown colors. 

Davida MD David Fiddaman says: “The technical team at Davida UK has put all of its 40 years manufacturing experience into our latest road-legal helmet, the Speedster v3. We are very excited to be working with vintage revival specialists 9MC to be launching this new product at the New York International Motorcycle Show in December.

“We have greatly advanced the way we manufacture GRP composite helmet shells in order to retain the same low profile shape, so that the Speedster v3 now satisfies the demands of the highest modern ECE R22-05 & DOT safety standards.”
The Speedster v3 features 3 shell sizes that allow 6 helmet sizes from XS (54) to XXL (61), in a traditional low profile GRP composite shell with polystyrene shock absorption liner, removable and replaceable full leather lined interior and optional studs for fitting visors and peaks.
Fiddaman says that the new version “fulfils our long-held ambition to produce a dual approval road-legal version of the Speedster. As an open-face style helmet that is highly evocative of the 1970s, with 26 years of heritage already behind it, we are confident that the Speedster v3 will be a winner for dealers looking for a helmet design that combines authentic vintage styling with cutting-edge contemporary materials and features.
Founded in 1975, Davida UK is an ISO 9001 accredited company that is the sole manufacturer of certified helmets in the UK.  Every single Davida helmet is still hand-made at their factory near Liverpool, England, “using time-honored manufacturing techniques and craftsmanship”.

Triumph Motorcycles Groningen wint project Street Twin competitite

Groninger Salt Lake Racer nummer 1 van Nederland

Triumph Motorcycles Groningen heeft afgelopen weekend op de Bonneville VIP Launch Party in Breda de project Street Twin competitite van Nederland gewonnen. 

Met dank aan Bigtwin Magazine, foto's Onno "Berserk" Wieringa 

Groningen, 23 november 2016 - De Salt Lake Racer van Triumph Motorcyles Groningen is nummer 1 van Nederland geworden, binnen de wedstrijd die Triumph op poten heeft gezet voor het ‘customizen’ van een Street Twin.  In deze build-off staat de Triumph Street Twin centraal. Het team van Triumph Motorcycles Groningen is samen met de andere dealers in België en Nederland uitgedaagd alle creativiteit en vakmanschap in te zetten voor het verbouwen van de Triumph Street Twin.

Het team is met de bouw van de Salt Lake Racer begonnen met de filosofie, dat ze puur ambachtelijk handwerk willen laten terugkeren in een moderne motorfiets. Op dit moment zijn scherpe lijnen en een minimalistische bouw hip en trending. In Groningen vaart het team juist een andere koers, forse rondingen uit de jaren ’50 die een unieke look en ”sexy” karakter hebben. De inspiratie voor de Salt Lake Racer kwam, zoals de naam doet vermoeden, van de races op de Bonneville zoutvlaktes en van de racemotoren uit de jaren ‘50. De motor ziet er uit alsof er al tientallen races over deze eindeloze vlaktes zijn gemaakt.

Bijzonder aan deze Street Twin zijn de liggende zitpositie en de speciale kleurstelling. Het plaatwerk is met de hand geklopt, en de koplamp is off-center in de kuip geplaatst. Daarnaast zijn details zoals, de afneembare nummerplaat, start- en claxonbediening in de stuuruiteinden

BSA Alive Again?!

BSA could be the next motorcycle brand to come back 
from the dead.

Industrial conglomerate Mahindra this week purchased control of the legendary British bike builder’s name, along with regional rights to the Czech Jawa brand, the Times of India reports.

"We are excited about the new journey that we are embarking upon in the two-wheeler space. Our focus on the premium, niche segment through Classic Legends will bring alive some iconic brands like BSA and Jawa, not just in the form of products but as an entire lifestyle," the company’s director, Pawan Goenka said.

Mahindra has invested in several moto brands in recent years, including Peugeot. While it hasn’t detailed its plans for BSA, it is expected to use it to enter the premium motorcycle space, where it will compete against the likes of Triumph and Moto Guzzi.

Like Royal Enfield, another heritage British brand based in India today, BSA was originally an offshoot of a weapons manufacturer, the Birmingham Small Arms Company. It stopped manufacturing motorcycles in the 1970’s, and several efforts to resuscitate it since proved unsuccessful.

Rubber-Rides: "FXRs of Verona" at MOTOR BIKE EXPO 2017

Rubber-Rides: "FXRs of Verona" at MOTOR BIKE EXPO 2017

Custom Chrome International Bike Show Series Italian Championship/MOTOR BIKE EXPO Bike Show adds  FXR model Special Award.

Highlighting the rubber-mounted "naked" Big Twin Models of Harley-Davidson from 1982 to now, the Custom Chrome International Bike Show Series Italian Championship will feature additional thrills with the introduction of the "FXRs of Verona" class for the 2017 event. US-based FXR specialist KIRK TAYLOR and Swiss International Customizer DANNY SCHNEIDER will share the effort of bringing together as many European and International modified and customized FXR and Dyna motorcycles as possible and the CCE Bike Show Team will have the bikes then judged by national and international magazines and international builders, to get the best bikes of Verona awarded. 

Introduced in 1971 the first FX took the frame from the big “FL” and combined it with the fork and front wheel of the “XL” Sportster, thus the “FX” series was born. A brainchild of Willie G. Davidson, the bike was named “Harley’s first stock Custombike” and its numerous variations became a sales success. In 1982, the first FXR – the "R" standing for "Rubbermout" motor and gearbox – was introduced and remained in production until the FXR & FXLR models in 1994. With low production numbers and the original "FXR" out of production more than 20 years ago, it was decided to "widen" the class definition to the current Dyna models, which in spirit and technology are a successor to the "classic" FXR. Introduced in 1991 with the FXDB
