Alma Pramac Ducati have become the final team on the 2019 MotoGP grid to unveil their new colours, going for a very different design for Jack Miller and Pecco Bagnaia’s bikes for the coming season.
Unveiled live on Sky Sports in Italy, the new colours were designed by Mitja Borkert, director of the Centro Stile Lamborghini, the Italian car firm’s in-house design team, who said at the launch: “The team of Centro Stile and I are big fans of MotoGP and it was a great pleasure to contribute to this project, carried out together with Pramac. The design of the Ducati Desmosedici GP livery is inspired by the colours of Alma Pramac Racing, and conveys the spirit of the team with their strong determination and desire to win.”

KTM 690 SMC R (2019-on) Review

KTM 690 SMC R (2019-on) Review | CANNONBALLISM | Scoop.it
Supermoto isn't dead. But unless you have a kart track in your back garden, or you happen to live in the Alps, extracting the best from the SMC R will be tricky.

There’s very little to moan about, except the gearbox, which is nothing new to these LC4s. We experienced plenty of false neutrals and not even the excellent Quickshifter+ system could mask this.

Interesting review of the KTM 690 SMC R...

Riding with Ian Hutchinson: Miracle man 

Riding with Ian Hutchinson: Miracle man  | CANNONBALLISM | Scoop.it
Hutchy’s front wheel rises over the crest, he’s slightly crossed up, but perfectly in control. I spot his right foot tap another gear on his modified Honda Fireblade SP, and he’s gone. Two corners later he pulls over, nods, waits for me to catch up, and promptly hoons off into the distance again.

The 16 Best Motorcycles for Shorter Riders 

The 16 Best Motorcycles for Shorter Riders  | CANNONBALLISM | Scoop.it
Finding a motorcycle when you’re a particular size can be tasking. Since the majority of the market is built around the ‘average’ rider, finding a bike when you’re a bit bigger or smaller narrows your options. Seat height on modern motorcycles – sports bikes, ADV, and even some sport standard models — can range on the high-side, causing those of us with more modest inseams to tippy-toe when at a light or starting up. On conventional bikes, having too large of a frame will mean you’re cramped and hunched; those shorter in stature find reaching the bars is literally a stretch and, more importantly, that planting a foot dat a stop becomes a circus balancing act.
