Yamaha today unveiled their all-new electric start YZ450F, featuring the world’s first smartphone tuning app on a production motocross bike. Powered by a new reverse-head engine, this completely restyled YZ450F gives Yamaha riders the power to discover their real potential. Equipped with the latest cutting edge technology, and delivering outstanding engine power and agile chassis performance, the new YZ450F represents the start of a whole new era of advanced racing technology in which the rider feels at one with their machine, and where trackside fine-tuning can be done quickly and easily using the touch screen of a smartphone, with the Yamaha Power tuner app. The YZ450F also sports a new, redesigned engine, slimline bodywork and a lightweight electric start.

Yamaha also unveiled two limited edition WR450F and WR250F EnduroGP models to complement the company’s current off road competition line up. These specially-developed enduro race bikes are inspired by the Outsiders Yamaha Official Enduro Team factory machine, that took Loïc Larrieu to 3rd overall in the 2016 E2 World Enduro Championship, and secured an EnduroGP class victory at the 2017 EnduroGP of Italy. Based on Yamaha’s standard WR models, these limited edition bikes include a number of exclusive upgrades (Akrapovic slip-on muffler, graphics kit, optimised ECU mapping and Acerbis tri-fit handguards).

Triumph announced their ground-breaking new Bobber in October 2016, using the massively popular T120 engine, but with a retro look and quality of styling rarely seen in a stock bike. The Bobber was an immediate hit with fans all over the world, and the launch was highly anticipated in 2017. As the day came around to unveil both the Bobber and the new Street Scrambler, Fowlers and Spoke & Stringer, a stylish surf and bike cafe in the Bristol harbour, got together to plan a launch event of a suitably cool calibre.

The entire Bonneville range was present on the night, showing off Triumph’s current range to its best – in addition to a handpicked selection of Triumph-branded clothing and accessories. Spoke & Stringer provided a delicious buffet – moroccan street food, rich coffees and a great selection of artisan beers and ales. Around 140 guests attended, and quickly packed out the small cafe.

The unveiling was preceded by a short video, showing the Bobber and Street Scrambler gliding through sun-kissed gorges – a bit of a contrast to the cold and darkness falling outside! The finale was heralded by the roaring of both bikes’ engines, and the Street Scrambler and iconic Bobber came thundering into the crowd, through the front doors, to take pride of place in the lobby.

Seats were sat on, details admired and lots of selfies taken – cementing the Bobber and the Street Scrambler as another two fantastic additions to the Triumph Bonneville stable.

Photos from the event are below – if you’re interested in any of the Triumph Bonneville range, including the new Bobber and Street Scrambler, please get in touch with Fowlers Triumph on 0117 977 0466.

The Yamaha YBR125 has been the gold standard in commuter motorbikes since its introduction in 2005. Reliable, economical to run, with a low seat height to accommodate all riders – a success around the world. Today Yamaha have announced its successor, to bring the trusty machine into 2017 – the YS125.

The front cowl has been redesigned, as has the seat, and the half-fairings given a facelift too. The instrument cluster has been brought up-to-date, with a digital LCD display now showing the rider all they need to know. A new Unified Braking System (UBS) means braking is smooth and controlled, and the engine has been refined to Euro 4 emissions standards too. Available in red, black and white, there’s a YS125 for every taste!
