      Earlier in the year, we did an article on the launch of the all new 2021 Aprilia RS660 that was soon to arrive on our shores. It has been one of the most anticipated sports bike launch out of the Italian manufacturer Aprilia to come out for quite some item.
      You can read our previous review of the Aprilia RS660 here:
      As we expected, the direct competitor to the Yamaha R6 was launched to much fanfare and its performance did not disappoint. The Aprilia RS660 is now available from Aprilia's distributor in Singapore - Mah Pte Ltd and can be yours for a machine price of S$28,000 - which does seems like a bargain after you consider what comes stock on the bike and also its latest suite of technological improvements.
      Mah Pte Ltd is making the deal even sweeter now however, by throwing in a extended warranty and servicing package if you purchase the 2021 Aprilia RS660 now as part of their launch promotion (And this is a testament to their belief in the build quality and reliability of the Aprilia brand!):
      Top up S$1,000 and enjoy
      3 years unlimited mileage warranty 3 years service package (oil, oil filter, air filter, spark plugs and valve clearance!) To take advantage of this deal, head over to Mah Pte Ltd today to look at their range of Aprilia sports bike available and you might just find yourself riding home on a new Italian stallion!

      Besides standing out for the special features in terms of design that set the mood of a modern rustic chic picnic in every detail, this limited edition set fulfils the need for a fresh breeze. The model comes in three colours:
      White Innocenza Green Relax Grey Materia
      White Innocenza

      Grey Materia

      Green Relax
      The launch event for the Vespa Pic Nic was held on the night of the 14th of April 2021, beautifully hosted by Mr Eugene Mah, Managing Director of Mah Pte Ltd and members of the media and customers were on hand to see this latest creation from the Italian brand.
      As usual, the event was a huge success, with Mah's classic hospitality the highlight of the day (in addition to the Vespa Pic Nic of course!). Paired with great food and wine, this event was a good welcome and sign back to days of old before the pandemic. Of course, all safe distancing measures and legal requirements were met.

      Our friends from @TRI333PLE hard at work
      The machine price of the 2021 Vespa Pic Nic is S$7,300 with all the goodies you see attached coming with the bike in its stock configuration. Aside from the special colour palette, the Pic Nic comes with Vespa's original front rack with a picnic mat, as well as a rear wooden box that is created specifically for the Pic Nic. The machine price is S$500 above the standard Vespa Primavera 150 and we think this represents excellent value.
      What's more, the Vespa Pic Nic 150 will be limited to ONLY 9 units in Singapore, with 3 of each colour, so if you want to get your hands on one of these beautiful Italian scooters, please contact Mah Pte Ltd soonest to secure your unit.

      Vespa Pic Nic is created with features that give off the vibe of a relaxing picnic day. The signature belt in beige adds a touch of rustic chic elegance to the livery of the scooter. The front rack, as well as the rear rack (standard equipment on Vespa Pic Nic), have one brown strap respectively, that not only embellish the look of the vehicle but are also functional items to tighten to the Vespa Pic Nic the items to be carried with you in your journey out of town.

      The rustic character of the set is reflected also in the brown details of the livery such as the footrest and the dedicated stickers that complete a harmonious ensemble. The unique saddle is designed only for the Vespa Pic Nic: different shades of brown are tailored to provide the most sophisticated look and never-before-experienced comfort. The small Italian flag positioned on the saddle strap is a further reminder of the origin of this wonderful bike, whose body, as per Vespa’s signature, is completely made of steel. The beauty of the scooter is ultimately highlighted by the chromed details of the crest, the white outlines of the shield and the white rims.

      Vespa Pic Nic range is equipped with 12"-wheel rims, made of aluminium alloy and with a five-spoke design, specially conceived in white by Piaggio Group’s Italian design centre. They bring out the chicness of the scooter, ensuring a ride in style for the young spirits that are constantly on the lookout for an enjoyable escape from the city.

       
      Meanwhile, the Vespa Pic Nic comes with accessories and merchandises that complete the unique experience with the scooter. The picnic blanket, enriched by the embossed Vespa Pic Nic logo, and the special rattan basket (with fixing kit which allows the basket to located firmly on the rear rack) with leather details create the vintage vibe of a classic stylish picnic. The picnic kit is completed by the white cooling bag (inside the basket) where food and drinks can be stored once the journey outdoor begins. Special Vespa tumblers, available in grey and white, are designed to keep your drink at the temperature you want. A branded fedora hat, a tote bag (which is available in white and grey) and a white T-shirt with heritage graphic, are also available to level up the outfits of the picnickers who are enjoying their carefree trip in the countryside.

      In terms of experience, riding the Vespa Pic Nic will definitely be a smooth ride. It is driven by modern one-cylinder four-stroke 150 cc iGet engines, air-cooled and equipped with electronic injection and 3-valve distribution. Each detail from the exhaust to the inner structure of the transmission casing was designed to provide a smooth, quiet and comfortable ride. The control unit contains a barometric sensor, which ensures always optimum combustion under all conditions and at all altitudes. The engine power and torque delivered thus reach new levels of steadiness and reliability, also in city traffic, characterised by continuous “stop and go”.

      The engines are environmentally friendly and perform at the top of their category, making the Vespa especially perky both under city traffic conditions and in open-road stretches. This brilliant performance comes together with extremely low fuel consumption.

      This is Triumph’s new Tiger 900, and if you’ve never looked at the Tiger before, or don’t know what it is, this might be the best time to change your perspective because the Tiger has changed much more than its stripes. 
      Like the preponderance of SUVs in Singapore, adventure bikes have dominated motorcycle sales in recent years. As a result, you can get off-road styled bikes of every shape and size – even a scooter.
      While the Japanese 2A ‘light’ adventure offerings, such as the Honda CB400X, are the equivalent of an everyman’s Honda HR-V, the European mid-weight adventure bike segment is for those who want a bit more of everything, without going full-on safari around town.

      The brief here is for a bike that’s lithe enough for that intra-city commute through murderous traffic (yes, the jams are back), comfy and tough enough for long distance trips (when it’s finally “safe” to ride northwards), and with enough oomph to beat other commuters in the traffic light-to-light dash and more.
      This Tiger 900 is totally new, despite the familiar styling cues. Its predecessor, the Tiger 800, was a solid and sometimes stolid choice, first debuting in 2010 and updated twice in its life-cycle (2014, 2018), but it was clear Triumph needed something totally clean-sheet to, well, triumph.

      The new bike is made in Thailand, and like some Ducatis, as well as cars from the Land of Smiles (and more protests), that’s not a problem – in fact it’s the opposite. 
      The build quality of the Tiger 900 is visibly up two notches over the Tiger 800. For example the silver segments on the fairing are painted-on, not stickers, encased in a generous thick layer of clear coat. Sporting an all-new chassis, subframe and suspension,  smaller headlight (LED lighting with daytime running lights, complete with removable headlight protector) and revised fairing. 


      As usual with the Tiger models, there’s a dizzying array of versions to choose from. In Singapore the lineup consists of the entry-level Tiger 850 Sport, then the 900 models: GT Low, GT Pro, and Rally Pro. The GT models being road-centred, and the Rally models being more ‘proper’ adventure and off-road ready. The model ridden here is the GT Low, which is almost 50mm lower than the standard model thanks to the seat and unique suspension layout.
      Compare that to the 800mm-plus seat height of other adventure bikes, and the Tiger makes a much easier time of it with no tiptoeing, and pushing it is relatively easy too thanks to its 194kg wet weight, and 5kg lighter than the Tiger 800.

      While we don’t usually need to opt for shorter seats, being 1.8-metres tall, we can see how the GT Low would be a boon for riders of a smaller stature. The seat has two height settings – 760mm and 780mm – and we chose to set the seat in the “high” position, and this meant full sole contact on the ground and bent knees.

      Unexpectedly, we found the sitting position to be ergonomic, with no complaints from the knees, the 10mm narrower handlebars (complete with handlebar guards) positioned just right, resulting in a neutral, neither sit-in nor sit-on position. The riding position allowed for easy steering, so easy in fact, the bike responded really well to successive left-right-left flicks. So quick and so composed, the Tiger 900 felt much like the Street Triple – and that’s saying a lot!
      The more powerful three-cylinder engine is certainly responsible for that too, the new 900cc unit is Euro V compliant, producing 10 percent more torque (87Nm at 7,250rpm) and nine percent more power in the mid-range rpm, but with the same peak power of 94hp at 8,750rpm.

      That translates to more power and better acceleration all-round, and is enjoyably punchy. The Tiger 900’s engine pulls really hard from 4,000 to 4,800rpm, tapers, then picks up again from 5200rpm to 7000rpm, even in sixth. The fly-by-wire throttle is seamless, reducing the usual lurching when rolling-off and getting on the throttle again immediately.

      On the downside, there was some buzziness from the engine, especially above 6,000rpm, possibly a result of the new firing order, which also makes the bike sound more like a parallel twin than the much-loved Triumph triple burble/whine. 
      What I found unusual was buzziness in the engine, particularly above 6000rpm, apparently a result of the new 1,3,2 firing order, a departure from the 120 degree configuration from the earlier engines. Aurally, the Tiger 900 sounds more like a Yamaha TDM with its 270 degree parallel twin, i.e. sounding more “twin” like than the classic Triumph “triple” exhaust note. Even the characteristic high pitch whine is now muted. 

      It was happy leaning to a considerable 40+ degrees, at which point the adventure-sized 19-inch front wheel would require more, perhaps excessive, handlebar input to increase lean angle. Tackling sweepers spiritedly would also cause a bit of rear wheel bobbing (evident by tyre wear), a characteristic of softly-sprung adventure bikes, but we were able to mitigate that by increasing the preload a few clicks.
      As for non-spirited daily riding, the Triumph’s broad power band, agile handling, and low seat make easy work of the urban jungle, and without panniers the bike’s not particularly broad either. The GT Low doesn’t have an up-down quickshifter, available as an option, and standard on the GT Pro and Rally Pro. We did notice that there was some heat directed at the right knee, though if you don’t wear shorts, nor spend 15 minutes on end in traffic it shouldn’t be a problem.   

      Like any self-respecting Euro adventure bike now, the Tiger’s brimming with technology on all fronts, and it is quite well-specced. 
      On the safety front, Brembo Stylema front brakes deliver good power and feel, even with one finger, and that’s helped along by riding modes (Rain, Road, Sport, Off-Road) and a new optimized cornering ABS and traction control, with IMU (inertia measurement unit).

      The Tiger 900 now sports a 7.0-inch TFT display for a dashboard, which apart from having four layout styles to choose from, also includes a half screen Turn-by-Turn navigation, which requires option hardware, and operation via the My Triumph app.
      Triumph has clearly thought this through, since a waterproof handphone compartment complete with charging capability is provided under the passenger seat. Additionally, the battery is now accessible under the rider’s seat by simple removal of a plastic shroud.

      Underseat phone charger is a nifty feature

      In competition, the BMW F 850 GS and Ducati Multistrada 950 are the closest, with a similar size, spec, though you pay more for the premium badge of course. Like Triumph always does, the Tiger 900 offers lots of bang for the buck in comparison. 
      If we were in the market for an adventure bike agile enough for daily commute, long tank range (each fill up is good for 350km), characterful engine and exhaust note, at a price tag reflective of the world economy, the Tiger 900 would be on that short-list without a doubt.

      Got me thinking after watching this video from Vespa Motorsports. Vespa of course has a cult following all over the world and are able to command a premium over similar models by other brands. Does the Vespa brand matters to you or will you consider more affordable alternatives?
