  2. The all new Shoei Z-8 helmet was announced at the end of 2020 by the top-rated Japanese manufacturer and since then, everyone has been awaiting the release of this successor to the Shoei Z-7. Being one of the two major Japanese-domestic helmet manufacturer (the other being Arai of course), this latest series will be sure to sell out very quickly, and the Shoei Z-8 has been positioned to appeal to a wide range of riders as a perfect everyday full-face helmet. When you think of SHOEI's flagship range of helmets, the current Shoei X-Fourteen probably comes to mind right away - as this is the most hyped helmet from Shoei featuring many pro riders in MotoGP and WSBK. This is the manufacturer's flagship model, with high safety performance and lots of the latest aerodynamics. Complementing the X-series however, is the Z-series which caters to the more everyday rider that is not just looking at all out race performance but instead, also places certain emphasis on comfort, cooling, design, and ease-of-use. The appearance of the all new Z-8is a form that makes you feel sporty, yet has enough ventilation (required for Singapore's roads!), comfort is a high priority, and wind noise is kept to a minimum. Shoei's exclusive Singapore distributor - Chong Aik: Quote "SingaporeBikes.com" when you contact them to let them know we sent you! 34/36 Desker Road, Singapore 209566 +65 6297 2532 9am-6pm | Mon-Fri 9am-5pm | Sat Pricing of the Shoei Z-8 The introductory price of the Shoei Z-8's standard solid color range starts at 56,100 yen. The Shoei Z-7 of the same colour range was 49,500 yen (tax included), which is a price increase of 6,600 yen. Some might feel that a 10% increase in price might be a bit much to stomach, but take note that there are many more new features that come on the Z-8 that was not previously available on the Z-7! Also included in the kit now is a pinlock pins as well as Shoei branded stickers! Local pricing for Singapore is available through Singapore's exclusive Shoei distributor - Chong Aik International Pte Ltd! Please check back in once we get word from the great guys over from Chong Aik for Singapore's pricing. Build Quality and Weight The Z-8 inherits the lightweight and compact development concept of the Z-7. While the lines on the side of the cap have been retained from previous models, the design has evolved to be more sporty. The shell has been rethought for rigidity and is independent of the size of the helmet, so comfort is optimized for each size. Each lid is a separate case model with the exception of XS and XXL so you can be assured of the best fit! The actual weight of the previous flagship of the Z-range, the Shoei Z-7 weight in at 1457 grams. If you're wondering what the weight of the Z-8 is, wait no futher, and of course at no surprise, it comes in lighter than the previous generation at a whooping 1,419 grams. Although the weight savings is only 38 grams, you must take note that this weight savings comes even as a result of a few addition to the new Shoei Z-8 helmet! A lot of new systems have been implemented in the development of the Z-8 such as the fitting that is wrapped around the neck is also thicker, and a new visor knob that has been changed from side to center for easier operation! Design, Efficiency, and Performance As mentioned above, the newly adopted visor lock system improves the adhesion between the shield and cap side when fully closed to minimise external noises that flow into the helmet during your daily commute. The visor lock can also be unlocked by pushing on the lower air intake for easier use of operation! There are also new "Vortex Generators" molded onto the side of the shield which is close to the rider's ear, and it works to reduce noise by suppressing turbulence of running wind. In addition, the cheek pads are an all-new design for the Z-8 and have been updated to wrap around the neck for a more comfortable fit. The improved fit reduces wind penetration through the wearer's neck and significantly improves the level of silence over the Shoei Z-7. Compared to the Z-7, one additional air intake hole has been added. The wind travels around the inside of the helmet through the air route provided in the shock-absorbing liner, providing superior coolness compared to the Z-7 which would be greatly appreciated in a tropical country like Singapore. With all of the above reasons, if you're on the fence and are in the market looking for a new full-face helmet that you can use for everyday riding and safety is your utmost priority, look no further than the Shoei Z-8. Stocks are now available at Chong Aik for you to test and let the guys know we sent you for your special pricing! Shoei Japan Launch Video of the Shoei Z-8:
  3. @r123456, welcome to SBF! According to the TP or according to insurance? They might have differing views as for insurance there is monetary compensation involved. In layman terms however, the highway code dictates that the other rider has the right or way as he is travelling straight along a main road whereas you are making a turn. You are absolutely correct in thinking that a vehicle's signal light should be taken to show his intention but never a confirmation that he is actually executing a turn. Similarly in the driving centres, even if an on-coming vehicle has signaled, you would have to wait until he is actually 45 degrees into the turn before you can make the right turn (in the case of CDC). Good luck and i hope there wasn't actually an incident?
  4. Hello @FraserY, welcome to Singapore! It is almost impossible, if not extremely difficult to import your vehicle into Singapore. Unless it is a classic model, which you can then import under the Classic Registration scheme, you would almost certainly be better off selling your Ducati in Australia and buying another one in Singapore. You can find a price list (albeit a few months old) of the official Ducati Singapore dealer here in Singapore located in the thread below: The current Monster 950 is retailing for S$39,800. If you do swing by, mentioned SingaporeBikes.com and i'm sure the guys there will take good care of you!

  7. @teocekn You buy the parts online and DIY on your own? Fantastic.
  8. Welcome @Leong A, how are you liking the Kymco so far? Kymco Singapore does organise rides for Kymco owners from time to time, you should join them (safe distancing of course) to meet other Kymco owners! Congrats on your purchase!
  9. "The future is EV" - This is a statement we've heard time and time over, and there are certain prevalence of this happening around us as we see mainstream brands of motorcar start introducing EV models into their range, and the latest news from our 4-wheel cousins is the arrival of Tesla setting up its direct-sales showroom here in Singapore. If that's not a testament to the market potential, we don't know what is. Why EV? It's called Petrolhead and not ElectricHead, right?! There are several reasons why the EV market is gaining traction, few amongst which are that they are greener and thus better for the environment, which is all the hype these days. They cost lesser to run in the long-term as you do not have to pay for petrol or diesel. And lastly, the performance of EVs have surpassed that of what the traditional engine can deliver. While prices for electric vehicles (cars and motorcycles) are rather prohibitive at this point in time (we'll touch more on this later), the prices are slowly but surely dropping as technological advances make it cheaper to manufacture, and being able to sell a larger number vehicles would also drop the average pricing to consumers. With that introduction to electric vehicles done, let's dive into what has been making waves in the local motorcycling scene here in Singapore over the past few weeks. Sneak peek of the Energica EVA EsseEsse 9+ If you are a biker, you would have noticed several media agencies such as The New Paper (shoutout to Biker Boy!), @TRI333PLE, @SBF, and a few others posting up pictures of what looks to be a very futuristic looking, sports naked bike, albeit without an exhaust pipe. That bike, or to be clearer, that electric EV bike, would be the ENERGICA EVA EsseEsse9+. The Energica range of electric motorcycles, are the world's first high-performance production EV motorcycles to have hit the roads in recent years, and in Singapore more specifically, is the first full production electric motorcycle marque, focusing on the higher-end market, to be launched here. Energica is distributed in Singapore by Ifyni Pte Ltd. We speak to Mr Eugene Mah (Operations Head of Ifyni Pte Ltd) later on in this article so read to the end to find out more! P.S. For those of you who think that's a familiar name, it is because Eugene is also the Managing Director of local motorcycle powerhouse - Mah Pte Ltd. What models of the Energica range are coming to Singapore and what are the prices? So, Energica has 3 models in its range, namely the Energica EGO, Energica EVA Ribelle, and Energica EVA EsseEsse9. The bikes listed here are in descending order of their prices as well - cool, right? All models listed above come in the standard variant, which is already very adequately equipped, or an upgraded RS/+ model with even more power and battery capacity. We will also have dedicated reviews of each of the models coming to SingaporeBikes.com in the very near future so be sure to check us out if you have a particular model in mind! First up - the Energica EGO (Prices starting from S$80,800) https://energica.ifyni.com/energica-ego/ The Energica EGO first appeared on the scene at EICMA in 2013. It was then a culmination of years of electric racing competition, with numerous victories including the 2010 TTXGP European Championship and runner-up for the 2011 TTXGP World Championship. Energica has also been appointed to be single manufacturer for the FIM Enel MotoE™ World Cup until 2022. This is the sportbike variant within Energica's range. It does the 0-100km/h in a whopping 2.6s so it'll be sure to give the Ducati V4 a run for its money. Secondly, - the Energica EVA Ribelle (Prices starting from S$74,400) https://energica.ifyni.com/energica-eva-ribelle/ The Energica EVA Ribelle is the naked version of the Energica EGO, with the same torque, power, acceleration and range; the only key differences being riding position and top speed. If you want a true electric streetfighter, aggressive with an urban mojo, or an assertive-yet-upright riding position instead of the typical track day crouch, choose the EVA Ribelle. But like its cousin the EVA EsseEsse9, the EVA Ribelle easily transforms into a long-distance sport-touring bike with the simple addition of side panniers, windshield and tank bag. The Energica EVA Ribelle has the same linear 215 Nm – 159 lb-ft torque as the EGO, the same 21.5 kWh long-range lithium-ion battery with up to 400 km – 249 miles of city range, the same suspension and performance options, and all the technological amenities. Not enough? Opt for the “RS Version” for even more off-the-line velocity. Last, but definitely not the least - the Energica EVA EsseEsse (Prices starting from S$69,000) https://energica.ifyni.com/energica-eva-esseesse9/ This is the motorcycle that Ifyni first brought into Singapore and the bike that the local media was invited to test. Aside from a little stationary drop (sorry Eugene!), we loved every single bit of our first EV motorcycle experience. It is something that you have to test, ride, and push to the limits, to find out what all the hype is about. The EsseEsse is a modern take on the classic racer, and being priced the lowest among the range, would make a very good introduction to the mature rider into the world of electric superbikes. SingaporeBikes.com has reviewed this bike so expect a first look and review article to be published shortly! Interview with the "Boss Man" - Mr Eugene Mah, Operations Head - Ifyni Pte Ltd Although well-versed in the motorcycle trade here in Singapore and being part of the Mah Group, it is still daunting to be the first-mover in an industry that has for so long been dominated by the internal combustion engine. We speak with Eugene Mah to find out what drove him to engage and represent Energica, what he sees for the future, what can we expect with regards to Government policies, and how you can get your hands on a Energica electric motorcycle, to test and to own! What is your vision for the electric motorcycle industry here in Singapore - in the near to mid future? EM: We hope that electric motorcycles can be given as much recognition as all ICE vehicles, (including 4 wheelers) to be a mode of transport and of course, to make it affordable and accessible to everyone. Right now the focus is on EV cars (EV charging lots are for 4 wheelers, none for 2 wheels), and it seems that guidelines always overlook the 2 wheelers. We hope that having EV bikes out earlier, we would not be forgotten when these guidelines are being drawn as we try to move towards the green movement. Also, the boundaries of performance has been pushed with the introduction of performance electric vehicles. In general, when customers think of electric, they consider it a more economical mode of transport (which it is) but the Energica, after having tried it, really surpasses any performance motorcycle that is readily available. What is the targeted group of buyers you are looking to reach? EM: Understandably, the Energica is a bike that is in the higher-priced segment and appeals to the early adopters and those who are drawn by the performance and technology behind it. Do you see electric motorcycles as complementary to your existing business or will there be a shift in consumer consumption from gas to electric in the future? EM: Ifyni business is all about electric. We are a small enterprise that is fully focus on the electric business. Whether there is a shift, I think it's not an if but a when. In terms of motorcycles, I don't think it's a one or the other, I still feel the joy of that rumble between my legs on an ICE but as a rider, that exhilaration from the punch of a performance EV is really addictive. Basically, the ICE is what I hold dear, but the EV gives me that thrill. As the first high performance electric motorcycle distributor in Singapore, are you lobbying with LTA to similar incentives to e-motorcycles like they do EV cars? EM: One word - yes, definitely. (Ok that's 2 words) Are test rides available to the general public? EM: At the moment, due to the interest, we are basing it on invite only. Are pre orders open? And if so, when can customers expect delivery for the above models? EM: Yes they are! We are looking to supply from October onwards but it could be earlier base on the model booked. For interested buyers, how do they get their hands on one?! EM: Email to [email protected] Right now Energica doesn't have a showroom and will sell through the dealers. Are they any expansion plans for Ifnyi to expand out of Singapore at this stage? EM: We are always open to opportunities and the right partners should it present itself! There you have it, from the Boss Man himself! This is a very exciting time indeed for the motorcycling industry in Singapore, and the use-cases for EV motorcycles can range from sportbikes like those used for the FIM Enel MotoE™ championships, to delivery riders for when petrol would not contribute such a high running cost as charging your EV motorcycle should be quite a bit cheaper! We have articles coming on the in-depth review of the Energica EVA EsseEsse 9+ so do stay tune for that! What do you think of EV motorcycles? Do they have a place in our future?
