ONE DAY, YOU CHOSE. YOU GAVE UP walking or driving full-time and got on a motorcycle. If you were very young when you did it, you may have had help from your family, but here you are, still caught in the wonder of moving on two wheels. And I am betting you are not uninformed of the risks involved.

THROTTLE BY WIRE
A closer look at motorcycling's next technological trend
[no value]
[no value]
KEVIN CAMERON
Toyota's huge problems with "unintended acceleration" in cars with its throttle-by-wire system make us wonder about the new generation of throttle-by-wire bikes (Yamaha R6, R1, Aprilia RSV4, Honda VFR1200F, to name a few). In the early days of MotoGP, more than one manufacturer had uncommanded full throttles with its system.

MONSTER 796
$9995
The boys from Bologna are at it again, having just released information on the 2011 Monster 796 ($9995). The middle Monster will be available this June in white, black or Ducati red; all three colors are mated with a red trellis frame and red-striped wheels. Mechanical highlights include an 803cc engine with a slipper clutch, a single-sided swingarm and four-piston Brembo brakes. Released in conjunction with the 796 are 10 different Monster Art body kits, many of which mimic historic past Ducati models. Each kit ($600) includes a gas-tank cover, fender, bikini fairing and seat cover.

XT1200Z
$20,900
Released in Europe as a limited-production 2010 model, Yamaha’s latest Open-class adventure bike is unlikely to come to the U.S. anytime soon. The XT1200Z Super Ténéré is powered by a 1200cc parallel-Twin with a six-speed gearbox and shaft final drive. Features include ABS, YCC-T ride-by-wire throttle with three-stage traction control and three selectable power modes. Here, the XT1200Z is pictured with aluminum sidecases and skidplate that come standard on the “First Edition” model. Pricing in the U.K. is the equivalent of $20,900.

NATIONAL SUPERBIKE ROADRACING has shifted focus in a big way over the past two years. Technical R&D was an essential element in Superbike racing ever since its beginings in the late 1970s. Most parts of production machines required modification or outright replacement with better parts to function in racing.

NO ONE LIKES TO EAT HUMBLE PIE, BUT the staff of Cycle World is now gulping down several large slices of the stuff. In the Roundup section of our May issue, we ran an article titled “MV Agusta F4 1000 R” that actually was an edited version of an older story on a 2007 MV. Our European Editor, Bruno dePrato, intended to send us a story on the new 2010 F4 but accidently e-mailed the one on the older bike instead.

YAMAHA HAS RELEASED information on the brandnew FZ8, announced as a 2011 model for the European market. It is powered by a 779cc, dohc, inline-Four tuned for instant gratification via good bottom-end torque. The aggressive FZ8 chassis features a black powdercoated Deltabox frame, a 43mm inverted fork and optional ABS among other highlights.

The writing was on the wall—literally—on the July, 1985, cover, as Suzuki's Intruder separated itself from other "customs" from Japan by looking, well, truly custom. Chrome covered the bike from its spokes on up, while the engine was as much a part of the styling as it was of the riding experience.

KTM’S OFF-ROAD MODELS keep getting better and better. No surprise, since in terms of time, money and involvement, the Austrian company puts a huge effort into the enduro market. One of its latest offerings is the 450 XC-W Six Days. The name commemorates the International Six Days Enduro, which was held in Portugal in 2009 and is scheduled to take place in Morelia, Mexico, this coming November.

UNVEILED AT THE 2007 Tokyo Motor Show, the Honda CB1100 strikes a chord among those seeking a throwback to a simpler time. We’ll save you the suspense: Sorry folks, Honda has no serious intention of exporting this faithful repro of the “four paw” to your postcode any time soon, unless you’re one of the lucky souls living in Australia or New Zealand.

Excellent work only to be supplemented with Peter Egan’s heartfelt “put your money where your mouth is” Ulysses editorial.

HOW STRANGELY TECHNOLOGY changes. It would be comforting to think that it follows the guidance of reason, but often enough it seems more like fashion. Why does technological change sometimes take so long? Replaceable three-layer plain bearings were developed for heavy service in the large piston aircraft engines of WWII, and at war’s end this was a mature technology, ready for adoption by the civilian world.

IT MAY BE TRUE THAT THE FLUTTERING of a butterfly wing in the Amazon changes the weather in Des Moines, but nothing has more consequential echoes than the changing of a single part on a motorcycle. Swap your handlebars—as I did for a more traditional Sixties’ bend on my Triumph Scrambler last week—and the ramifications proliferate.

WELL, THIS ONE’S GOT THE BEST WIND PROTECTION, you think to yourself as you get back to full throttle and steer with tail wagging to the edge of the exit and then some, up on the rumble strips bumbabumbawhumba, then rotate slip-and-stickily back to the next tight apex with the brakes mashed hard, before tearing off another clumsy chunk of throttle meat—spin, chortle, repeat...

Last year, Ben Spies ate up WSB on the revised Yamaha YZF-R1, a 1000cc inline-Four with a new-tech 90-degree crank. But dogging his every move was Noriyuki Haga on a 1200cc Ducati V-Twin. Showing amazing strength for a first-year bike was the Aprilia RSV4 Factory, ridden by Max Biaggi.

How can two vehicles be so inherently similar yet so entirely different? It’s hard to figure. But the Triumph Rocket III Roadster and the Yamaha Star VMax are exactly that. On one hand, they’re both big, long, unfaired, ultra-heavy, über-powerful asphalt shredders.

Sport Bike Seats and Luggage
$99.95
Ready to hit the road this summer on your sportbike? Saddlemen has all-day comfort and storage convenience in mind with its Sport Bike Seats and Luggage. New Gel Channel seats are easy to install and come in three styles: Sport (black-on-black, synthetic-suede cover; $259.95), Tech (flexible fabric top, plus memory foam; $239.95) or flagship Track (bike-specific colors, contoured shape; $259.95). A matching pillion cover is included. Add a Magnetic Tank Bag ($139.95) for short, around-town hops. Longer, overnight hauls call for either the semi-rigid Sport Panniers in either Large ($139.95) or XL ($159.95) or a feature-filled Top Pack ($99.95).

PH-T1 Torx Wrench Set
$55
Got the right tool for the job? Park Tool's PH-T1 Torx Wrench Set ($55) has star-shaped ends for sure engagement and feature Park's proprietary "P" handles. Each wrench is made in the U.S. from industrial steel and through-hardened for long life. Eight-piece set includes T6, T8, T10, T15, T20, T25, T30 and T40 sizes.
Saddlemen
H7 Intense White Halogen Headlight Bulb
$45.50
Bright, white light without a hint of blue is the claim behind PIAA's new H7 White Halogen Headlight Bulb ($45.50). A larger glass tube with a white top coat is said to increase output and allow the bulb to burn at a cooler temperature to balance performance with long life.
Saddlemen
Draggin' Jeans
$23.95
Create a stylish barrier against road rash with Draggin' Jeans' new antique wash. The faded, worn look is achieved chemically so as not to compromise the protective qualities of the 14.5-ounce denim. As with all Draggin' Jeans, 13.5-ounce Kevlar lines the seat and knees. Pair them with CE-approved SaS-Tec hip ($23.95) and knee ($23.95) armor for greater impact protection. Choose either men's Classic Style ($119.95; waist sizes 30-42) or women's Modern Fit ($119.95; sizes 2-18).
Saddlemen
Airflow Windshield System
$239-269
Not the same height as your riding buddies? Stands to reason your windscreen should be different, too.

Custom 500
$119.99-139.99
If urban crowding and impending global apocalypse have you feeling a little hot and claustrophobic lately, there's still no better way to combat the forces of darkness than a quick blat around town for a face full of fresh air. Bell's excellent new Custom 500 series helmet harkens back to happier times, 1954 to be precise, when Bell Helmets founder Roy Richter produced his first fiberglass lid. Available in sizes XS-XXL, the new Custom 500 doesn't just look retro, it is retro, with a custom fiberglass shell, special EPS liner with quilted interior and various cool graphic treatments including our choice—the Speed Soul—complete with rear-facing koi, snaps for a peak or shield, real leather trim and chinstrap padding, etc. Very comfy, lightweight (1.94 pounds), low-profile and DOT-approved, and not at all overpriced at $119.99-139.99.

NOTHING BEATS LEATHER IN AN OFF-the-bike tumble. But when the sky goes dark and rain begins to fall on your faceshield—plop, plop, plop—you’d better have a waterproof cover-up close at hand. Unless you’re zipped into Alpinestars’ 365 jacket, that is.

Q I ride a 2003 Yamaha Road Star I’ve had for three years. The bike has 35,000 miles on it, and I’ve put on 21,000 of those. Since I’ve had it, the engine has died about 15 times. It has died sitting at a stop sign, it has died going through the gears, it has died going 75 mph down the highway, it has died when the motor was hot and cold.

With my motocross background, I appreciate off-road bikes that have MX-like characteristics. The Suzuki RMX450Z I tested last month impressed me in that way, but as an all-around off-roader, it fell short in one important area: fuel-tank capacity.

Q In response to your answer to Gary Pepitone’s question regarding ditticulty getting his GSX-R started when the weather is unseasonably cool in Florida (“F-f-freezing in F-F-Florida,” April issue), I believe the problem could be related to the “RVP” of the gasoline in Florida.
