The 2015 Sea-Doo Spark is Here! ~ Pete's Cycle Company, Inc | Pete's Cycle | Scoop.it
petes cycle's insight:

Yup, the most affordable, most innovative personal watercraft to come along in years returns for 2015, and perhaps the most amazing part about the 2015 version of the Sea-Doo Spark is that it has resisted the seemingly inevitable price creep to maintain its $4,999 starting price.

Kawasaki Has Already Announced its Entire 2016 Line of Dirt Bikes ~ Pete's Cycle Company, Inc | Pete's Cycle | Scoop.it
Kawasaki just announced its entire 2016 model line of dirt bikes, and the big news is a new KX450F. The engine might not look radically different, but almost all of it is new, with a different angle on the top end, a new head, piston, cam and throttle body. The frame has changed as well, and Kawasaki is claiming a 7.5 pound weight reduction. The 250 didn’t get as much attention, although Kawasaki is rolling out a new handheld FI Calibration Kit that will make customization of the fuel injection easier at the track. Here is some of Kawasaki’s information on the new bikes.

The Multistrada 1200 S features those items, but with larger brake rotors, Ducati Multimedia System (DMS), Sachs Electronic suspension with semi-active Ducati Skyhook Suspension (DSS), full LED headlights with Ducati Cornering Lights (DCL), and a full-color TFT dashboard. So, when you’re braking with the ABS into a turn at night in the glow of TFT, the DSS adjusts as the LED is complemented by the DCL, and when you twist the PM the DTC comes on before you bang against the DWC, in your chosen PM, as the DVT is modulated by the IMU, for a hearty LOL.

Triumph Speed Triple

Triumph Speed Triple | Pete's Cycle | Scoop.it
Since then the bike has seen mild tweaks and changes while all around it the naked bike class has been evolving. MCN’s road testers still rate the Speed Triple as one of the best road bikes in the class; its lack of power when compared to 160bhp bikes like the class-leading BMW S1000R.
