Top 10 Signs Itís Time To Winterize Your Bike

Dec 02, 2016 - 2:37 PM - by Motorcycle.com


Iíve often felt that the real reason many motorcyclists donít winterize their motorcycles is that they keep holding off in hopes to squeeze in one more ride. Although the MO Towers are located in Southern California, many of us ventured from colder climes to the Great American West in an effort to enjoy year-Ďround riding. The journalism gig is just something we managed to weasel our way into as a means of supporting our habit.

In an effort to help dedicated riders in places that have real winter, the following list contains sure-fire signals that it is time to winterize your motorcycle rather than continue riding it or letting it sit unprepared developing the mechanical manifestations of Parked Motorcycle Syndrome.

Nov 30, 2016 - 3:20 PM - by Motorcycle.com


Last week the MOcrew made its annual pilgrimage to the Long Beach round of the Progressive International Motorcycle Show, where it was my first chance to see many of these bikes Iíd been reading and writing about in person. The Long Beach show is a special one, as itís centered in the heart of the U.S. moto industry, making it one of the rare times we get to see all of our industry friends all in one place. As such, there were a lot of cool things to see as we walked around. Here are my personal highlights from the show.

2016 FZ09, FZ07, & XSR900 Pricing and Availability Announcement

Feb 16, 2016 - 11:40 AM - by NickJ


Cypress, CA - February 16, 2016 Ė Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., today announced that the TMAX and redesigned Zuma 125 scooters, as well as the YZF-R3 sportbike, have joined the companyís 2016 model lineup. In addition, pricing information has been released for the updated 2016 FJR1300A, FJR1300ES, and the all-new 2016 XSR900.


2016 TMAX

The TMAX returns for 2016 in a striking, new Platinum Gray color. Featuring a powerful 530cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, DOHC, twin-cylinder engine, the TMAX is fuel efficient while also producing excellent acceleration and power for highway riding or commuting. With its Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) that eliminates the need to use a hand clutch or shift gears, operating the TMAX is easy.

Stylish LED headlights, front cowl, front fender, mirrors, and instrument panel all combine to give the TMAX cutting-edge styling and a sporty appearance, while advanced upside-down 41mm front forks and radial-mount front brake calipers deliver sportbike-like performance. For unmatched convenience, a Smartkey system makes turning the TMAX off-and-on as easy as pushing a button, and also operates the seat and handlebar lock mechanisms. And, for even more convenience, a handy 12-volt outlet is standard on the TMAX.

The 2016 TMAX MSRP is $10,490 and it will be available in dealerships beginning in late February.


2016 Zuma 125

The Zuma 125 has been updated for 2016, featuring new off-road-inspired styling, improved fuel economy, an upgraded rear brake and suspension, roomier ergonomics, enhanced storage, and even more convenience. Beneath the sleek new styling, the Zuma 125 is built around a strong steel frame with fat, aggressive tires on new cast aluminum wheels. Rugged front and rear suspension, along with protective brush deflectors and fork tube boots that further emphasize the off-road styling, make the Zuma 125 capable of riding on varied road surfaces while delivering plenty of attitude for daily commuting.

Powering the 2016 Zuma 125 is a compact, 125cc, four-stroke, four-valve engine with a ceramic-composite cylinder liner and electronic fuel injection, which delivers modern reliability and economical performance. With an estimated 103 mpg average and a 1.7-gallon fuel tank, youíre sure to get plenty of fun-filled miles before re-fueling.

The fully-automatic, V-belt transmission and push-button electric starting make the Zuma 125 super-convenient transportation. Standard center and side stands, along with a locking cover on the ignition switch, make it easy and secure to park. Thereís room for two atop the Zuma 125ís seat, plus lots of locking storage beneath it, while the step-through floorboards make getting on and off a breeze.

The 2016 Zuma 125 will be available in two colors, Radical White or Ultramarine Blue, with a MSRP of $3,390 and availability in Yamaha dealerships beginning in March.


2016 YZF-R3
