Lamborghini on two wheels trying to tease You

As we already know that Ducati and Lamborghini both represent the advantages of Italian automotive, namely the sporty impression, focus on design, and meticulous attention to detail. It is not surprising that these similarities were able to bring about a slick collaboration between Ducati and Lamborghini.

By the end of 2020 the collaboration between the two succeeded in realizing a motorcycle named the Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini is inspired by the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 which was produced in limited numbers and ready to tempt you the speed enthusiasts who have riding passion through the wind on the motorcycle's saddle.
The Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini has similarity values and visionary design approach with the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37. (Picture from: Otomotif Kompas)
As quoted from Lamborghini's official website, Mitja Borkert, Head of Design for Automobili Lamborghini, said that the design of this motorcycle was achieved through a team work that has the same values, and a visionary design approach so as to produce a silhouette that is unique, but different.
The Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini is also given a touch of carbon fiber material on several parts, such as the fuel tank, air intake, radiator cover, spoiler, mudguard, and seat cover. (Picture from: Otomotif Kompas)
Ducati's Centro Stile Director Andrea Ferraresi said, "The Lamborghini Sián-inspired Ducati Diavel celebrates the (same) values we share, which is that we are both Italian, we are inherently sporty and our designs always distinguish our creations." 
The Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini is equipped with electronic devices, ranging from Cornering ABS Evo, Ducati Traction Control Evo, and Ducati Wheelie Control Evo, which are supported by the Bosch's Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) platform. (Picture from: Otomotif Kompas)
As quoted from the Ducati's official website, only 630 units of this motorcycle were made in the world. And the Diavel 1260 Lamborgini has a price tag of around $31,995 or around Rp.452 million. Regarding the limited number of productions, it also reminds us of the same thing that was also done by Lamborghini when in 2019 launched the Lamborghini Sián which only produced 63 units in the world.

When we look at the appearance of the Ducati special made motorcycle, on the fairing there is the number 63 which refers to the year Automobili Lamborghini SpA. was founded, namely in 1963. In general, the difference between this Diavel special motorcycle when compared to the standard version is seen more in its outward appearance which follows the Lamborghini Sián, the first hybrid sports car from the raging bull logoed manufacturer.
The rim design of the Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini is also made the same as the Lamborghini Sián. (Picture from: ZigWheels)
As you can see, this Diavel special motorcycle comes in the same color as the Sián, which is covered in the Gea Green color combined with Electrum Gold accents on the frame. Then for its Ohlins adjustable suspensions appears in gold at the front, then on its single-sided aluminum swingarm appears in a dark color as does the engine. Then there is the typical Lamborghini's red color seen on the Brembo's brake calipers. While the rims is also made by Ducati in the similar design of the Lamborghini Sián has.

A touch of Sián-style design can also be found on the air intake, which is designed like the rear scoop of the Lamborghini supercar. Like a premium Italian motorcycle, this special edition Diavel is also given a touch of carbon fiber material on several parts, such as the air intake, radiator cover, spoiler, fuel tank, mudguard, and seat cover. The exhaust is also made of carbon fiber which is molded into two hexagon-shaped exhausts that resembled the design of the Sián taillights.
For the drivetrain, this special Ducati Diavel still uses the same 1,262 cc L-twin engine as in the standard version but has been upgraded. So that the power produced is greater, if the standard version only has 157 hp, while this special edition is capable of reaching 162 hp.

As for acceleration, it is said to be quite responsive and powerful, where it is stated that the BMW CE04 is able to accelerate from zero to a speed of 50 kilometers per hour in just 2.6 seconds and this electric scooter can also be driven up to 120 km per hour.
BMW CE04 is driven by a frame mounted electric motor with belt drive to the rear wheel by 42 hp of power. (Picture from: PaulTan.org)
This German company knows that a fast electric scooter will not sell if it cannot be used for long distances. That is why, BMW Motorrad then equipped this model with an 8.9 kWh battery pack, which in full condition is claimed to be used up to 130 kilometers.

Talking about the battery, the charging time when using standard facilities is more than four hours. However, if you use a fast charging system, from 20 percent to 80 percent it only takes 45 minutes. We bet, there're some of you want to have this unique scooter, so far BMW Motorrad has not mentioned yet about the price of this unique electric scooter. So it made you who want to have this scooter should be patient a little longer.😉

Here's the first LiveWire's electric motorbike model after split up with Harley-Davidson

As we all know, LiveWire was originally a variant of an electric-powered motorcycle developed by the famous American motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson. But recently, LiveWire has officially announced become an independent brand specializing in producing electric-powered motorcycles under the Harley-Davidson flag.
LiveWire One is the first LiveWire electric-powered motorcycle model, ever since it became an independent brand, but still under the Harley-Davidson flags. (Picture from: Electrek)
"We finally officially introduced our electric motorcycle brand LiveWire, to open up the opportunities in the market and become a market leader for electric-powered motorcycles. By becoming an electric motorcycle brand, LiveWire will be the future of motorcycles, which are fun to take on adventures or to ride in the city," said Chairman, President and CEO of Harley-Davidson, Jochen Zeitz, at that time.
LiveWire One electric motorcycle is reported to offer power up to 75 kW or the equivalent of 101 hp. (Picture from: WallStreetJournal)
As quoted from Visordown, now as independent brand after officially parting ways with Harley-Davidson, it's reported that LiveWire had launched an all-electric motorcycle model for the first time called LiveWire One. It's said that LiveWire will have its own showroom, it's starting in California and will expand to other cities or states. In addition, LiveWire allows its consumers or motorists to make online transactions.
And turn out, this specification figure is still lower when LiveWire was still a Harley-Davidson electric-powered motorcycle concept by offering the power of 78 kW or the equivalent of 105 hp. (Picture from: MotorpassionMoto)
In terms of the model naming, it's reminds us of what Harley-Davidson did when they introduced their first motorcycle model in 1905-1906, namely the HD Model 1 is powered by a single cylinder 440cc engine, which was able to make the Model 1 speeding up to a top speed of 56 kph.

Back to LiveWire One, this electric motorcycle is reported to offer power up to 75 kW or the equivalent of 101 hp. And turn out, this specification figure is still lower when LiveWire was still a Harley-Davidson electric-powered motorcycle concept by offering the power of 78 kW or the equivalent of 105 hp.
However, the difference is that LiveWire One will be sold in an affordable price tag, so it can be owned by many people. Furthermore, it's also said, LiveWire One had been included in the list of motorcycle variants to be introduced in 2021, although it is not known yet exactly how much battery capacity it carries and other detailed technical specs.

The figure of a dashing and futuristic designed cruiser motorbike of China

Benda, a Chinese motorcycle brand is reported to be launching a new cruiser motorcycle figure in the near future. Actually, the motorcycle made its debut as the Benda LF-01 Concept motorcycle at the 18th Motor Expo held at Chongqing, on September last year, which was later realized into a production version called the Benda LFC700 and reportedly the all-new cruiser motorcycle will be launched at the brand debut event on July 2021, held in Xi'an, China.

How would it look? Okay, so far we might be familiar with imitation motorbikes made in China pretending to be the real ones. You might be seen all, ranging from a plagiarized version of BMW S 1000 RR, to a “copycatz” of the Ducati Panigale. However, Benda LFC700 is not one of them. Despite the cruiser motorbike's polarizing style, some credits may be worthy to be given to Benda for creating a truly original motorcycle design.
Benda LF-01 Concept motorcycle is a futuristic cruiser motorcycle and powered by a 680cc inline four-cylinder engine which is said to be capable of pumping around 97 horsepower. (Picture from: BendaMotors)
From the looks, the Benda LFC700 is definitely a futuristic cruiser motorcycle with several key elements that make it stand out in the midst of a modern urban crowd. We can be seen straight to the main part, its very large 310 cross-section rear tire that became a major feature that said succesfully to be caught the world's motorbike fans attention when it was still as the LF-01 concept motorcycle last year, then there is a unique headlights design are made to resemble a (small sized) fighter jet exhaust.
Reportedly, the LF-01's production version called Benda LFC700 will be launched in July 2021. (Picture from: BendaMotors)
There's another interesting ones, ie the uncommon and unconventional engine is chosen by Benda as its drivetrain, especially if seen the styling of this bike, which makes us expected a large V-twin engine to be chosen as its drivetrain. But, the Benda LFC700 cruiser is powered by a 680cc inline four-cylinder engine which is said to be capable of pumping around 97 horsepower so you can be sure it will make a fierce roaring sound when it passing through in the dense urban traffic.
Look its very large 310 cross-section rear tire that became a major feature that said succesfully to be caught the world's motorbike fans attention. (Picture from: BendaMotors)
For a moment, we saw when the Benda LF-01 Concept bike was launched last year, the Chinese manufacturer featured many premium features, such as the color TFT screen, ride by wire, slipper assist clutch, cruise control, ABS, and even the Hill start assist. But unfortunately, like most pre-production motorbikes, some of these features didn't make it to the production model. But don't worry because the Benda LFC700 is reportedly still loaded with advanced features, only the ride-by-wire and cruise control features are not included in the production version model. Not bad than nothing.
However, this edgy and futuristic looking cruiser motorcycle can certainly be a breath of fresh air in the cruiser segment which is currently dominated by the retro-style motorbikes. And reportedly, the Benda LFC700 will sell for around 40,000 to 50,000 yuan, or around US. $7,000 (or around Rp.101 million) and is hoped that the futuristic cruiser-styled motorbike will be able to attract the younger generation. But, now on You should be patient, if wanna see it.

Acquainted with a motorbike figure of the Soviet Union era

Podolskian Mechanical factoryâ, a motorcycle manufacturer from the era of the Soviet Union seem not familiar in the ears of many people today. The manufacturers based in the Podolsk city, near Moscow who stand at the beginning of World War II turned out to be a lot to learn from the enemies of the country, such as Nazi Germany, even then the United States, an ally in World War II but later turn back became 'enemies' in the Cold War era after World War II ended.
1938 ПМЗ or PMZ A-750 known as Podolskian Mechanical Factory A Seven Fifty. (PIcture from: http://adf.ly/1YgLow)
It is reflected on their motorcycle model, 1938 ПМЗ or PMZ A-750 known as Podolskian Mechanical Factory A Seven Fifty, where the design process through the stages and the learning process is quite long. The story began when, leader of the Communist Party wants to increase motorcycle production capability of the Soviet Union in 1929, then built the first big vehicle factory in Izhevsk and pointed an engineer named Petr Vladimirovich Mozharov as the head of factory
.

In that time, Mozharov who had just returned from the 'school' in Germany, trying to apply his knowledge. Unmitigated eight best German motorcycle manufacturers in that time has been visited by him, such Allright, BMW, DKW, D-Rad (!), Mabeco, Neander, NSU, and Zündapp. But Mozharov simply choose the DKW, Zündapp and Neander as his refference guides, because the DKW has many models, Zündapp has high-tech in that time, and Neander for its unique product concepts.

Later, a prototype motorcycle named the 'L-300' was developed and tested by the 'Scientific Car and Tractor Research Institute' in Leningrad. In 1931, Mozharov and his team moved to Moscow to join the other leading Soviet automotive engineer. And they got the approval for the concept of a successful motorcycle built for the Red Army.

The concept, called NATI A-750 will become a reference product Soviet motorcycle over the next decade. Uniquely, the design mimics the Harley-Davidson D engine model, which are placed on the chassis that similar the BMW chassis with the fuel tank in it. The Double-cradle chassis was produced by means of press. Trailing link front suspension fork with leaf springs.

By using a two-cylinder engine capacity of 740 cc and transmission equipped with three longitudinal acceleration, as well as multi-plate dry clutch and eventually drive chain. Interestingly, other systems are very advanced in its time, for example an oil circulation system, a battery ignition system with a high-voltage coil and an automotive-style distributor.
Left side view of 1938 ПМЗ or PMZ A-750. (PIcture from: http://adf.ly/1YgLow)
The next model, NATI B-375, similar and congruent only now the machine slightly tilted forward at an angle of 13°. So it is more powerful, with the peak power up to 18 hp. So that by mid 1933, has produced four different prototypes, and successfully passed the road test as far as 1,200 km from Izhevsk to Moscow.

After through many 'political' debate, the Soviet Union then determine the L-300 built in Izhevsk, and the manufacturer officially bears the name of PMZ or "Podolskian Mechanical factoryâ". Uniquely, PMZ has actually been established since 1900 as a factory for the Singer sewing machine, which in fact belongs to the United States. Because of the change of power, the factory was nationalized in 1923, and since 1930 become the center for the production of military necessity.
Rear side view of 1938 ПМЗ or PMZ A-750. (PIcture from: http://adf.ly/1YgLow)
Mozharov who became head of the factory then, did the pace of change in total. He changed a lot of production machines as needed to produce a motorcycle. Like the stamp machine to make the order efficiently. It took three years to change the factory in order to produce the first motorcycle. But mysteriously, Mozharov later died, were reportedly due to fatigue. And consequently, the production also faltered.

Although in July 1934, in great financial difficulty and many other difficulties, the manufacturer successfully delivered 10 units of the first motorcycle that is now known as "PMZ A-750". And nine of them were demonstrated to the 'People's Komissar,' or the Communist Party supervisor at the state agency, Sergo Ordzhonikidze. When the workers were planning to produce a total of only 500 machines, he objected. "You have to produce no less than one and a half thousand such machines!"
And of course succeed, even if it means working day and night for the manufacturer workers, because almost all the production lines work by manually. And since that day, PMZ A-750 became the official motorcycle for the Red Army, Police and Secret Service including civilian government agencies in the Soviet Union. The motorcycle model is very popular because their rugged construction and great looks.

However, when it used turned out to be a lot of unexpected things happen, such as less comfortable and sometimes the engine suddenly died without any known cause. Due to the many complaints, and finally the motorcycle production was stopped in 1939.
