  1. Ducati’s legendary naked bike - the Ducati Monster, showed up in 1993, a Massimo Tamburini-designed beauty with a steel trellis frame and Ducati’s infamous L-twin on full display. It was a hit, but even with a blue-chip name behind the drawing board, it was a parts-bin special. That, friends, ain’t the case here. The 937cc Testastretta L-twin pushes out 111 ponies to push the new Monster’s insanely lithe 366-pound dry weight. Backing that up is 68.7 pound-feet torque at 6,500 rpm. As is de rigueur with Ducati, it sucks its air and gas through desmodromic valves. Peak power hits at 9
  2. Not unlike the major Japanese players, Kymco has constantly sought to improve its product offerings to cater to the ever-increasing demands of motorcyclist. Gone are the days that owners just want a no-frills cheap motorcycle to get around but even the entry level models now comes packed with modern technology like ABS, smartphone integration, and many many more! We wrote on the Y-Connect from Yamaha as well as the RoadSync from Honda and today, we bring you the Kymco Noodoe which is now available from all bikes and scooters available from Kymco's exclusive distributor in Singapore
  3. The Singapore Police Force on Tuesday (April 13) warned of a new type of scam targeting delivery personnel from parcel and food delivery companies. As part of the scam, victims would first receive a cash-on-delivery order via their company’s delivery mobile application. Under the pretext of making payment for the delivery, the scammers would then ask for the victims’ mobile phone numbers via the delivery app, claiming that this was to transfer the money to them via PayLah!. PayLah! is an e-payment app used by DBS and POSB banks. The victims would receive a one-time password (OT

  9. Bro James recently shared in the Singapore Classic Motorcycle Group that he had actually written in to LTA to request for approval to run his classic 1967 Triumph Daytona motorcycles and have actually gotten the written approval from them that side indicators are not required as "the manufacturer did not originally installed turn signals or side indicators on the motorcycle from the factory". From LTA feedback e-mail: So if you have a classic motorcycle that do not currently have indicators and you would like to keep the original look of the motorcycle, do write in to LTA a
  10. @Andrew Quek Congrats on starting your Class 2 journey! It's an amazing feeling once you finish all the classes and can ride ANY motorcycle without ANY restriction. Since you've already completed 3 simulators and 2 practical lessons, you're almost at the finishing end! I've found the TP testers at CDC to be rather strict though, not in the the past where they said Class 2 sure pass cause TP give chance. I've been hearing that they're stricter with Class 2A/2 riders so be sure to watch out for wobbling, improper lane change, etc. Those demerit points add up quickly. All the best
  11. Bear's Garage, another very popular workshop among the XMax community, has chimed in to share their 2 cents on the whole XMax engine oil consumption issue (WARNING: The pictures looks NASTY!!): The Yamaha XMAX 300, one of the more popular models on the road now. With it's decent fuel consumption vs power, massive underseat compartment and array of aftermarket accessories, there is no wonder why these bikes sell like hotcakes. There is however, a big issue with the XMAX that majority of riders know about. In a lot of cases, the engine consumes engine oil at a higher rate compared to
  12. Just sharing for fellow DIY-ers or bikers who are looking for some missing screws, bolts, washers, nuts, etc Yong Seng Screws Pte Ltd supply most of the DIY shops and many workshops also head to them to look for hard to find items. Prices are ok but there is a minimum purchase quantity of 3-5 screws if you are not buying in bulk. Best to bring your own screws down so they guys can help you out and find a perfect match. 3 outlets in Singapore, i've found the Ubi branch to be the best stocked outlet. YMMV. Good luck to all DIY-ers and have fun! French Road Blk 802, French R
  13. Some photos from Royal Enfield Singapore, the new Himalayan 411 is looking awesome, especially in that camo colourway. What do you think?
  14. Saw this post by bro Mohammed Aidil, makes a lot of sense and very useful. Pasting it here so that other members can benefit from this! Although, ive had experience appealing for a few kinds of offences. What i can share is: 1. Appeal and own up that you know what you did was wrong. Apologise. 2. The reason you did it. This part need to be strong. Dont worry about being silly. Be truthful. 3. Pain point in paying for the fine. Just got a new job. Affected by covid badly. Just getting back up on your feet. Ask for emphathy. Promise that you will be more responsible in future.
  15. I don't think i've ever changed a fuel injector on any vehicle before haha. It's one of those items that "use until spoil"! With modern direct injection engines, i think the issues of clogging, etc are less but good to get feedback from those who have tried injector cleaning services before. @adesmond2 Which workshop are you talking about? Maybe we can speak to them to find out and learn more..
  16. AS1K Vespa GT200A This plate is supposedly the 1st private number plate to be registered in Singapore. Originally, "S1", the "A" prefix and the checksum "K" was added later on when all motorcycles during that era were allocated "Ax" number plates. Interesting bit of history! P.S. The owner is part of the Singapore Classic Motorcycle Group, hope to see this beauty in person one day!
  17. Last September BMW filed trademark applications for three new ‘M’ branded motorcycles – the M1000RR, M1300GS and M1000XR. Now the first of those machines has been unveiled and it’s aimed squarely at bringing BMW into contention for the WSB championship. The standard BMW S 1000 RR, which has been around since it emerged in 2009 as a Superbike World Championship contender, uses a water-cooled 999-cc inline four-cylinder engine producing 205 horsepower with a redline at 14,600 rpm and a top speed of 185 mph. A solid foundation, then. Now, the M 1000 RR (or M RR for short) makes 212 hp
  18. A perfect fit to the iconic Vespa Primavera is the acclaimed Italian motoring brand's newest concept, the Vespa Pic Nic. Born out of a creative idea that matches the lifestyle of those that retain a sense of freedom and curiosity with nature, the Vespa Pic Nic set is a perfect limited-edition iteration of the Primavera that was launched in the '60s and beloved by those who have passion for new experiences.

  19. Yamaha's entry for the Class 2B street bike market comes in the form of the Yamaha MT-15, or Yamaha MTN155 if you are being technical. Like its elder siblings, the MT-07, MT-09, etc, it adopts the MT moniker and goes by the tagline - "The Dark Side of Japan". Its name is not just the only thing that takes after the much more powerful motorcycles however, as you can tell from its looks, that a lot of styling and design cues are also inspired from the larger Class 2 motorcycles. This two wheeler is more focused on design and positioned as a street racer. Yamaha Singapore Official Distributo
  20. Honda gives its CB1000R naked some love for 2021 with a sophisticated blacked-out look and a few choice upgrades. The bike will be available this May starting at S$TBC. Although it will be available to dealers in May, it doesn't mean you will be able to get one in May however. We must apologise in advance as we understand from Boon Siew Honda that they will not be bringing in the Black Edition of the Honda CB1000R until the current 2020 models have been sold out - and who knows how long that would take! The new styling gives the machine its 2021 moniker, the CB1000R Black Edition, a
  21. EH! Might be a different petrol station, let me go by the SPC/Shell outside my house tomorrow and take a look. Sorry it's getting late and the brain's not working.......... But ya, definitely RON98 for the R6 in my opinion.
  22. @Garc2992 Excellent points made. The revised proposed fine is actually $1,000, up from the existing $500. And the new proposed ruling will apply to the PILLION as well, which means if both using non-PSB helmets, the total fine is $2,000 to the rider. OUCH! Currently the law only applies to the rider and NOT the pillion. In the statement they did say that similar penalties will be imposed on Malaysia riders, if that is to be believed, let's see. Last but not least, we're all hoping that TP will have more sense than to catch and fine 'errant' riders who use Arai/Shoei or othe
  23. @Mingqian_ From past posts here in SBF, there have been quite a few that appeal and managed to get their fines waived. The TP officer on duty understands that most if not all bikers will do that at some point and if it's not done 'too dangerously', they usually quite understanding and will give chance. However, from a couple of years back, all appeals now have to be done ONLINE, so you are not able to 'plead' with the officer in person to 'give chance' as it is not a face to face appeal but online. Please put in your appeal and let us know how it goes so this post can be informative
  24. @Merciful369 Congrats on making it thus far! How long is the wait for your TP test? Remember to bring: IC License (if you have) Full gear (helmet, elbow and knee guard, covered shoes, long pants/jeans, mask) Remember to do: Book 1 (minimum) or 2 (best) CR the week before the TP test Try all the bikes as you will NOT get to choose your preferred bike during the TP test Sleep early to get well rested Have breakfast so you have energy Take the time while waiting for TP on actual day to go through the various scenarios in your head - t
  25. @bikerboy999 I saw a Grom on the highway the other day, looked hilariously small but at least she was travelling on the left-most lane. The 2021 Grom with 1 extra gear should be able to hit 100km/h? (not that you should try..) We have a review coming soon once we get our hands on one, could be a fun weekend bike, but remember to ride it with a PSB-approved helmet..
