'DigiShox' Electronic Suspension System for Harley-Davidson Models made by Bitubo

 



Bitubo 'DigiShox' Electronic Suspension System for Harley-Davidson Models

Italian suspension manufacturer Bitubo has added to the applications available for its popular DS ('DigiShox') Electronic suspension system with fitments for Harley models.
Operated from a smartphone app, the DS system consists of Bitubo's proven and multi-patented ECH cartridges, its XXF rear mono shock and a Bluetooth control unit. The control display indicates the status of the settings in use - from a choice of 12 available suspension tuning options.
A button allows the rider to choose the set-up that suits his or her riding style and load, while an E-lean drop sensor and a GPS sensor determine speed, with the value used to adapt the suspension's setting automatically whenever required by the rider. The Bitubo ECH cartridge kit is equipped with hydraulic adjustment of the manual spring preload and electronic adjustment of compression and rebound. Bitubo XXF mono shocks are equipped with electronic adjustment of rebound, compression and preload.
Bitubo says that using "the smallest and most efficient micromotors ever used by any suspension producer allow increasing the speed more than 30% compared to any other similar system. The unit is equipped with 9 adjustments that are preset by Bitubo, and not modifiable, together with 3 more that can be personalized by the user.
"The included color choice map is visible on the display through the choice of position 1, 2 or 3 and further personalized set-ups are available via an Apple Store or Android Market downloadable app.



After downloading the app and selecting it, the user will be faced with the 9 adjustments preset by Bitubo and the 3 more that are customizable to suit the user. The user can then send his personalized set-ups through the application to the control unit via Bluetooth wireless technology. The set-ups are selectable through the handlebar selector - parked or on the go - with a system reaction time of the system of just 100 milliseconds.

Bates Tires Baja 100

Gravel, rocks and roadkill – here’s an awesome tire knowing no fear. Whistle into town, come back home across the fields Steve McQueen style. Do some hooligan racing among friends on the neighborhood dirt track. Or what about that camping trip to that place where the road ends you’ve been postponing all those years? The Bates Baja tires can handle it.


Here’s a family of scrambler tires right on the tracks of the legendary Goodyear Grasshopper, capable of doing it all: ample grip on the road with a tread pattern that will get you out of the deepest ruts off the road.


The Bates tires Baja are the product of Bates’ long experience on diverse gravel, dirt and mud pistas, highways and Autobahns on several continents. For continuous quality control we use them on our daily riders.


We’re having this classic square section tire produced to the highest technical standards. The design matches perfectly most vintage, bobber and chopper style bikes. The available wheel sizes can be freely combined. Your next vintage scrambler project should be awesome.
It’ll give that extra twist to that off-the-wall vintage rigid project of yours, or use it to give a whole new attitude to your custom bobber or 70th style swingarm.

The World's First Electric Motorcycle Museum Exhibit

Petersen Automotive Museum

The World's First 
Electric Motorcycle Museum Exhibit

Being staged at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, the Motorcycle Arts Foundation (MAF) and Harley-Davidson have announced the opening of Electric Revolution, said to be "the world's first museum exhibition exclusively featuring electric motorcycles."



This exhibit, which is supported by Harley-Davidson, will open at the Richard Varner Family Gallery at the Petersen on April 6, 2019. Curated by MAF co-founder Paul d'Orléans, the exhibit will explore the history and current state of the electric motorcycle and e-bike industry with 21 examples of two-wheeled electric vehicles from both custom builders and established manufacturers.
Paul d'Orléans says that "zero-emission vehicles have become a prominent part of the transportation landscape, and electric motorcycles and e-bikes are one of the fastest growing sectors in this quickly evolving market. The exhibit assembles a dynamic mix of production, racing, prototype and custom electric motorcycles from world renowned manufacturers and builders in the EV space including Harley-Davidson, CAKE, Specialized Bicycle Components, Roland Sands Design, Curtiss Motorcycles, Alta Motors, Joey Ruiter, and [AMD World Championship regular] Noel Connolly."
Harley-Davidson is the lead sponsor for this exhibit and has provided three recent prototypes from their electric portfolio, including the 2020 LiveWire, which will be available to the public in Fall 2019.

"We are creating history with the world's first exhibition of any type to feature two-wheeled electric vehicles exclusively," said d'Orléans. "The electric motorcycle industry is exploding with new players investing in an electric future, and this exhibit will showcase contemporary manufacturers as the trail blazers of the industry and pay homage to electric pioneers."
"We are thrilled to support the Motorcycle Arts Foundation and participate in the Electric Revolution exhibition at the Petersen Automotive Museum," stated Harley-Davidson Senior Vice President of Marketing and Brand Heather Malenshek. "Harley-Davidson is at the forefront of the changing consumer landscape within motorcycles and we are excited to showcase our halo product, LiveWire, within the powerful narrative this exhibit presents to the public."

VECTOR MOTORCYCLE - BRITISH PIONEER ARC GOES LIVE ON CROWDCUBE

BRITISH PIONEER ARC GOES LIVE ON CROWDCUBE
Invest in Arc - http://www.crowdcube.com/arcvehicle
Critically-acclaimed manufacturer of the world’s most advanced electric motorcycle is now live on crowdfunding platform Crowdcube.

Over 2,000 expressions of interest generated during the pre-registration phase.
Crowdcube launch marks an invitation to join the Arc family in a transformative journey alongside other blue-chip beneficiaries such as Jaguar Land Rover’s Venture Capital fund InMotion Ventures.

Priced at £90,000, Arc will produce 399 units of the Vector electric motorcycle.

One month on from announcing its investment initiative with crowdfunding platform Crowdcube, Arc, manufacturer of the world’s most advanced electric motorcycle has now opened for public investment.


Following a very strong pre-registration phase that has generated over 2,000 expressions of interest, Arc will offer members of the public an opportunity to invest in the game-changing Vector motorcycle. The investment will also help drive business scale through a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in St Athan, South Wales.

This partnership with Crowdcube marks the second phase of a much larger raise which includes the multi-year backing of a number of blue-chip investors, including Jaguar Land Rover’s Venture Capital fund InMotion Ventures.

Mark Truman, CEO of Arc says: “What an incredible few weeks it’s been. We had intended for Crowdcube to go live earlier in the month, but we were delayed due to the finalisation of terms with new cornerstone investors. Since we first announced the Crowdcube initiative, we have been overwhelmed with positive interest and pre-registration expressions exceeding 2,000. This is all about joining the Arc family, so whether you’re a motorbike aficionado, seasoned investor, technology or environment enthusiast, we’re inviting people to join our mission to become an established global leader in electric, recreational and luxury mobility. This unique investment opportunity is now open to the British public.”

The investment will be concentrated towards the opening of Arc St Athan in 2020 which will become the centre of excellence for the company’s manufacturing. The 65,000 square feet HQ will be reflective of the brand’s proposition; best in class, innovative and thoroughly British at heart. Included in the stunning manufacturing facility will be a clubhouse, a test track and proving ground as well as a private facility for clientele arriving by helicopter.

The Arc Vector will also be receiving investment to scale as the most advanced electric motorcycle ever brought to market, with a lightweight carbon-composite structure and ingeniously elegant battery-module monocoque.

Arc goes beyond just the machine itself, it’s about the journey. To this end, the company has created a revolutionary rider information system – a Human Machine Interface (HMI). Utilising fighter pilot projection-based Heads-Up Display (HUD) the company has developed the Arc Zenith Helmet. This, combined with Arc Origin haptic armour and jacket, allows the rider to receive multi-sensory information notifications. Advanced rider assist systems on the Vector provide warnings of dangers in urban environments as well as dynamic information related to the vehicles performance. This information is transmitted to the rider through the helmet and the armour – think a tap on the shoulder to tell me this is my left hand turn or a full body sensation to remind me I might be pushing a little too hard on a rainy day.

CASTROL SUBSIDIARY NEXCEL SHOWCASES ENGINE OIL MADE FROM CHRISTMAS TREES

CASTROL SUBSIDIARY NEXCEL SHOWCASES ENGINE OIL MADE FROM CHRISTMAS TREES
Nexcel develops an engine oil made entirely from waste
Chewing gum and Christmas trees included in waste items recycled to yield properties required for crucial chemical additives


Active oil management system promotes oil re-refining and sustainability
Castrol innovation business Nexcel has produced automotive-grade engine oil using entirely waste products. Chewing gum, used fryer oil, batteries, bathroom sealant and even a Christmas tree have been recycled and yielded vital properties for the ambitious programme, which demonstrates the significant potential of re-refined oil.


“The project showcases the sustainability potential of waste” says John Ward-Zinski, Nexcel’s sustainability director. “This was a hugely demanding project completed over the last year and one which we hope will open the public’s eyes as to the importance of recycling and sustainability. Few people would think that discarded Christmas trees and old chewing gum could have a commercial or environmental value, but our engine oil shows this is anything but the case.”


Nexcel’s ambitious project has been inspired by the company’s innovative sealed oil cell, which provides vehicle manufacturers with efficiency benefits and promotes used oil collection and re-refinement. “Our system has already been utilised by our technical partner Aston Martin, for use in the visceral Vantage AMR Pro at last year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, where the car became the first to tackle the legendary hill climb using re-refined oils,” continues Ward-Zinski. “In 2016, Nexcel & Aston Martin also achieved a podium finish in the competitive VLN Championship at the most arduous racetrack in the world: the Nürburgring. Sustainability, and therefore re-refinement, are of growing global significance; hopefully this project helps demonstrate the extent of what is possible.”

The most significant challenges of the project included the yielding of phenols and catechols from the waste to be used as antioxidants, forming the basis of the chemical additives required. Nexcel’s experts worked with a zero-waste goal, and after significant research, analysis of component properties and trial and error, the blend consisted of 180 chewing gum pieces, 500ml of used fryer oil, 1g of RTV silicone sealant, 14 household batteries, 1 litre of used engine oil and an old Christmas tree. Extraction of components from these waste items enabled Nexcel scientists to produce 1 litre of automotive quality engine oil.

“Re-refinement of used oil can create a high-quality product when blended with new additives, but bulk feedstocks made up of many different types of used oils can complicate the process and reduce the process yield. Nexcel’s oil management system avoids this by segregating used engine oil, keeping it in the cell during collection,” says Ward-Zinski. “For this particular project we wanted to make the entire oil from waste materials, and the challenge lay in the creation of the chemical additives. However, with creative utilization of modern technology there is huge potential in recycling. It could even help prevent the traditional Christmas tree tip-run needle-drop, from which no car interior has ever recovered.”



NEXCEL Background Information
NEXCEL automotive application is a self-contained, sealed cell that contains the correct grade of oil and specification of filter. Designed for flexible installation anywhere in the engine bay via a docking station, it is managed by a dedicated electronic control unit that communicates with the vehicle via the standard databus. An electric pump controls the flow of oil between the engine sump and the remote cell and an oil analysis capability can be integrated. By reducing the volume of oil in the engine, the NEXCEL system has been developed to allow faster warm-up, which can increase the rate of warm-up of the engine (and the cabin) and reduce tailpipe CO2 emissions during increasingly short, typical real-world journeys.
Containing the oil within a sealed cell also makes recycling of old oil a much more practical option because it eliminates contamination by other fluids during the drain and recovery operation. Nexcel units can remain sealed up to the point of re-refining, allowing the oil to be returned to its original specification. Changing the cell takes just 90 seconds. For garages, the benefits also include the elimination of spills and greatly simplified oil recovery. Nexcel’s closed ecosystem could help to eliminate some of the one third of drained engine oil (worldwide) that currently disappears into the environment.
