Where have I heard this before "This bike's got soul"...

 

I dunno abt how some ppl might feel, but sometimes I think that "soul" is overrated. This is, of course, just my personal opinion.

When Porsche planned to change their cars to liquid cooled engines, the Porsche fans almost caused a riot.

 

Traditional Porsches were Air Cooled. The engines made all the right sounds, made all the right vibrations, and undeniably produced sufficient power. Or you could say, This Car has got "Soul". It comes alive everytime you open that trottle. Modern Porsches are somewhat diluted in this respect, the liquid cooled engines are smoother, quieter, and more powerful. But somehow, they lack something compared to the older air cooled ones.

 

Or how about a Ferrari? Their engines all have that trademark Ferrari "Bark". Just listening to a Ferrari run through the gears can make the hair stand. Or the classic American Muscle car, the Ford Mustang, Shelby Cobra, powered by the V8 engine. The V8 engine is by nature harmonic, its got to do with the timing of the cylinders. The result is an induction note and exhaust sound that just touches all the right senses.

 

Same goes to bikes. If you don't feel the difference, then so be it. But there are some of us who are really passionate about machines, theres no crime in that.

Of course there's nothing wrong in believing in that. That's why it's a personal opinion. :D It's cool that you believe in it. You're entitled to it.

 

 

Soul is a subjective thing. To me... it's overrated. It's a sentimental attachment to a method/technology which may be past its prime.

 

While I can agree to engines making the right growling sounds... I can do without some of the niggles of older tech... especially reliability and longevity. If Porsche improved their engines and made it smoother and more powerful, then it's out with the old... for me, of course.

 

Eg: The Duc 916 was notorious for electrical problems, and the new 999 is so much more reliable. I'll take a 999 over an old 916 anytime, nevermind soul.

 

Again... it's a personal thing. No offence intended. :D

What electrical problems? All it takes is some know how and TLC.

 

People who are not mechanically savvy should never own an Italian bike. They first have to know what they could be getting themselves into.

 

My bike's got soul because I had to pour my own freaking soul in it! LOL!

Yah man,

 

Saw and heard the latest MV at Minerva work-shop. The exhaust note is really one of a kind. Doesnt sound like a Jap in-line 4 at all.

But there exist some ppl who have an elitist streak about them. No mass produced Japanese machines for them... for them, they will only respect certain continental models, or exclusive ones... even though the Jap machines may outperform them in most or every aspect.

 

I guess it's all in the name/brand sometimes. ;)

 

Along with that name/brand comes the vision... or maybe illusion.... of "Heritage" and "Soul". :D

Yo bro,

 

Not every rider is into "performance". Just check out the passionate "Harley Riders" who

rumble around Singapore.

 

I see no ending in the quest for outperforming each other's machines.....

Well.... we are talking abt sportbikes aren't we?? Performance is one of the benchmarks.... right?

i had seen one at old sporting shop b4 (i thinking under servicing) but it looks skeletal.

 

my friends hv spotted one on the roads in sg but i hadn't had such luck to c it yet :sian:

 

i hv seen another one in sepang abt 2 wks bk and it's a malaysian registered bike. in fact 2 mvs, one is the brutale and keke u can see how careful they r when on the track not diving in too deep but more leisure riding keke.

 

just bought myself the SPR model fr MPH just over the weekend for 6.90 hehe the one & only pc left. wouldn't had gotten it if i hadn't picked up when the box fell on the floor and guess i was elated though my mission was to look for rossi m1 yamaha which is out of stock everywhere in sg.

 

hehe i hv a yellow color pic, hmm let me post it later

:smile:

haha.... italian bikes r liddat.. the feelin of ownin it is shioke.. if u wanna c one..

:cheeky:

do so i :smile:

 

btw some news i surf upon - perhaps not new to fans out there

 

 

VARESE, ITALY; NOVEMBER 30, 2004: MV Agusta and Proton closed their agreement to increase the Italian company's capital by Euro 70 million, entirely underwritten and paid in by the Malaysian group.

 

The outcome of the refinancing is that Proton holds 57.75-percent of MV Agusta while the Castiglioni family retains 37.35-percent, Mr Massimo Tamburini has 2-percent and Husqvarna AB holds 3-percent.

 

Mr Claudio Castiglioni is still company CEO with responsibilities in the marketing and research and development sectors, whereas Proton will appoint the managing director in the near future.

 

The other managers appointed by Proton have already been announced. Zaidi Bin Mohd Yusoff is production manager, and Johnson Liu Wen Jong is manager of the finance area.

 

Proton, listed on the Kuala Lumpur stock exchange, is one of Asia's leading car manufacturers. Owner of Lotus, the Group is pursuing an international market expansion strategy involving industrial partnerships with prestigious companies in the automotive industry, including Volkswagen. Their turnover last year was Euro 1.5 billion, with Euro 114.5 million in profits and a worldwide workforce of more than 9,000.

 

NOTE: The Australian distributor for MV Agusta, Cagiva, and Husqvarna motorcycles is the Gold Coast-based Paul Feeney Group.

With that statement, you're inviting flames from the Chopper/Cruiser/Harley community. :lol:

 

 

What I meant was that... when we're talking abt Ducs, we can still talk abt performance, 'cos that's what sportbikes are abt... besides the speed, handling, and looks.

 

Harleys are not abt performance. Hence my comment. ;)

 

 

Don't take it the wrong way OK? :lol: naughty... naughty... naughty....
