As you know, we normally don’t shamelessly plug ourselves but we have to make an exception this time around. We are well into riding season and motorcyclists everywhere are enjoying the feel of their new gear. One item which has stood out in the last month or so has been the Shoei Qwest helmet. It is no surprise that most of you have opted to upgrade to this helmet with its advanced ventilation performance and long-distance comfort. Noise reduction technology has been significantly upgraded as well so it’s an easy transition from your previous hat.
If you are in the market for a new helmet, we highly recommend giving the Qwest a try. We have a large selection of color combinations available at Extrememoto.com.
The Crux is currently Yamaha’s least expensive motorcycle at approximately $650. Don’t go running to your wallets just yet, though. The Crux is strictly for the Indian market. New reports show that Yamaha will be supplying the Indian market with an even cheaper model priced at $500. With a very heated low-priced-motorcycle-war going on in the region, this could be a huge gain for Yamaha. Details haven’t been released yet but we know it would be the cheapest Japanese manufactured motorcycle in that market. Assumptions are that an engine in the 100cc range will be utilized.
Any GSX riders out there? If you happen to purchase a new 2012 model, here is some important recall information. Suzuki has recently identified an issue with loose bolts on some 2012 models which may cause the side stand interlock switch to fail. On the GSX-R1000 models, failure of this switch will terminate the ignition circuit. As a result, the engine will stop running, which obviously will increase the risk of a crash.
Suzuki reports that it will notify owners and dealers will be replacing the side stand interlock bolts, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin before the end of June 2012. If you own a GSX-R1000 and would like to find out more information about this recall, you may contact Suzuki at (714) 966-7040. The recall campaign number is 2A29. You can also get additional information by contacting the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at (888) 327-4236.

Summer is in full bloom, which means we’re taking advantage and hitting the road as much as possible. We carry lots of quality products at Extrememoto, but since we had such a fantastic response to Shoei’s recent promotion, we thought it would be a great idea to show you some of their new styles. Visit our Shoei website page and view their new color options and added inventory. If you have any questions, post your comments below and join the conversation on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
Enjoy the ride and keep it safe!
Before we give you some of these numbers, keep in mind that Hong Kong is only 426 square miles in total. With that said, Hong Kong has recently upped it’s game when it comes to electric vehicles and charging stations. Brammo is one the first companies to take advantage of this movement and has already sold a number of bikes to their police force. The number of EV’s (Electric Vehicles) being sold in the country has grown as well. This is surprising considering the size of the territory.
There are currently 310 EV’s riding around in Hong Kong. Just a year ago there was only 74. The government has 33 EV’s with another 43 arriving in the coming months. They will also be ordering another 140 by the end of the year.
A few private companies along with the government had already installed 500 charging stations and there will be 1000 by the end of June. This is a very big move for the country and it’s effort to reduce pollution levels.
We’re excited about the EV movement and look forward to big changes like these to be implemented in more areas around the United States. How do you feel about EV’s? Comment below with your thoughts or join the conversation on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
Ride Annie Ride is an event dedicated to Annie Goeden, a victim of Osteosarcoma (bone cancer). The event was put together so Annie could enjoy a day of riding on the back of a Harley-Davidson. There was a huge turnout for the event and Annie was overwhelmed with joy. Unfortunately, Annie is no longer with us and this year’s event is dedicated to, Hayden Elliott (son of Megan Handy Tenaglio), who has the same horrible disease.
If you would like to participate in this year’s event, take a look at the flyer below or visit the Facebook event to get started. Get out there and do you what enjoy doing most while helping a family in need.
As a follow up to yesterday’s post, we wanted to take you on a video journey of the Smart eScooter being built. It’s pretty amazing to see everything come together.
Harley-Davidson reported a stronger that expected rise in quarterly profits. The company reports that a younger audience has embraced their brand and that they expect to ship more motorcycles this year than they expected in January.
Here are some of the details:
This is great news for Harley. Will you be purchasing one this year?
