BMW Motorrad sales-Honda RCV race rep-Moto GP preview
May 27, 2015

There is a lot of excitement in the motorcycle world right now surrounding the Honda brand and a launch of a brand new RCV motorcycle. Fans are excited because the new machine is said to be the closest experience for the public road that there is compared to the bike of Moto GP World Champion Marc Marquez. Of course it wont be going the same speeds on public roads but in terms of power we are keeping a close eye on the rev meter. The new bike is expected to receive its grand unveiling on the 11th of June and will be called the RC213V-S. The new model is confirmed to be a 2015 model which means we can expect to see the new bike go on sale at some point throughout the course of this year and we expect that we are not too far away from its launch either. Price wise, around £112,000 is expected to be revealed as the bikes cost but would it be worth the money?. Let us know what you think about this Moto GP replica style bike. Would it justify a cost of this much?.

A total of 31,370 bikes were reported to be sold by the brand through January, February and March of this year and when looked at from a year on year basis, this is a percentage rise of 9.2 percent in total. It was revealed that their home country of Germany was their biggest market with other countries like the United States, France and Italy also achieving some great sales. The United Kingdom sold 1,746 of these motorcycles. In terms of which were the best selling motorcycles from the brand, just missing out on the top spot was the R1200GS Adventure model. However right at the top was the R1200GS standard model. Very exciting times for BMW Motorrad and the motorcycle market in general.

 

A preview of the Moto GP race number six

It is nearly that time again, the Moto GP World Championship will return to our television screens this Sunday when the riders make their return to Italy for the sixth race of the season. As we head into the race we see both Yamaha riders on top of the riders championship with Rossi taking the top spot followed up by former world champion Jorge Lorenzo. Marc Marques the defending world champion finds himself just outside of the top three at fourth position. Everything is still to play for with the sixth instalment of this years championship as Ducati also look to continue some dominating performances thanks to that strong power the new bikes are giving out down the straights.
