What are bikes or motorbikes?

Bikes, Motorbikes or motorcycles are various names by which the bike is well known.

Here, I refer to it as a bike.

Bikes are so designed that they can cruise, race, used for long travel, or navigate in a rush. Basically it is good for both, on and off road conditions.

Bikes are one of the most affordable methods of transport not in some areas, but in most corners of the world. On an average there are around 32 to 33 people in every thousand people owns a bike. It may seem that this average is not quite a lot, but it is in Asia where 60% of the world's bikes are available. Now, that's quite a lot. This doesn't mean that bikes are not popular in other parts of the world. It is in fact one of the common type of transport preferred in most parts of the world. If you take figures and statistics, there are around 200 million types of bikes, scooters and mopeds, three-wheelers and other two-stroke vehicles that are present. For a bike lover, this is great news.

Today, the motorbike market is controlled by the Japanese bike companies and they include Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha, Suzuki and many more. Despite the number of brands available in Japan, BMW, Harley Davidson and some Italian brands are hot favorites and rake in quite a number of sales.

This week, we focus on the 2010 Ducati Multistrada 1200.

What to say…..except va va vroom.

Basically, it has it all. there is ABS, slipper clutch, traction control, single sided swing arm, adjustable screen, a digitized LCD console, high and low seat options,
centre stand and heated grips etc. It is simply beeauutifuul.

To put it short, it is an impressive sports and adventure bike whose electronic aids can help you tackle any rugged trail. It also achieves very high levels of performance with comfort.

In short, the Multistrada 1200 offers is a superbike, that comes with comfort and the ruggedness of a sport tourer with easy ergonomics and has the ability to venture off-road

Try riding one today and you will know what I am trying to project.

Bikes Talking - Moto Guzzi

Labels: ,

Bikes Talking was started because I wanted to pictures of great bikes along with my views on them in a blog format, so that I can get feedbacks from people with similar taste. Besides, there is nothing else that I like more than a great bike.

I've now been riding a bike for over ten years. Not that it makes me anyone special; it is just that I love doing so.

People who know me, say that I am passionate and am bit crazy for anything mechanical. Not that I get offended by it, but actually take it as a compliment. I have restored quite a few bikes and am in that phase where I dig Italian Bikes (Moto Guzzi and Ducati to name a few).

Actually, Moto Guzzi has been building bikes from a long time back – a picture of the first V700 is given above. Guzzi has a crush for big bikes. Sometime back, a bike that was over 250 cc / 300cc was considered big and most of Guzzi’s bikes were 500cc and above. The Falcone 500 (picture given below) is an example of it.

I now need a new motorbike. I ordered the motorbike a few months ago as I decided that I needed a new motorbike, to go with my fingerless gloves. I look pretty good with my shirt off. Not that I'm going to do that as my physical condition is now not in a position to display publicly. I wouldn’t have hesitated doing it a few years back, but that’s another story. Anyway, I do intend to ride or cruise around the streets on my new motorbike.
