Shooting the bull / Verdict of $161 Million agains...
Last post by Biketographer - May 17, 2023, 11:29:43 AM
If you wonder what I think of some lawyers....   $161,000,000 for a broken leg.

ORANGE COUNTY, Calif., May 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The Simon Law Group and the Trial Lab are thrilled to announce a historic verdict of $161 million in the case of Soulliere v. Suzuki Motor Corporation. A motorcycle accident case, this landmark verdict is a major accomplishment for our team, and we extend our heartfelt congratulations to our lawyers Robbie Munoz, Travis Davis, and Gabe Houston (The Trial Lab) for their tireless efforts and outstanding work on this case.

This landmark verdict demonstrates our commitment to seeking justice for our clients.

Suzuki had defective brakes on their motorcycles and hid that from consumers for years. Our client broke his leg in a crash when the front brake cylinder on his motorcycle failed.

The verdict, which resulted from a retrial following numerous appeals, amounted to an $11 million award in compensatory damages and $150 million in punitive damages. It marks a significant victory in our ongoing fight for justice and accountability. Our client was severely injured in a motorcycle accident when the front brake master cylinder on his Suzuki motorcycle failed due to a defect that the company had concealed from the public for years.


At The Simon Law Group and the Trial Lab, we are committed to holding corporations accountable for their actions, particularly when they endanger the safety and well-being of consumers. We have long believed that it is the responsibility of companies like Suzuki Motor Corporation to prioritize the safety of their products and provide clear and transparent information to consumers about potential risks.

Our team worked tirelessly for years to pursue justice in this case, and we are proud of the outcome. In 2018, we obtained a favorable verdict, but it was subsequently overturned on appeal. Despite the odds, we persevered, were granted a new trial, overcame another appeal, and ultimately tried the case, which led to this incredible verdict.

This landmark verdict demonstrates our commitment to seeking justice for our clients and our dedication to holding negligent corporations accountable for their actions. While we celebrate this momentous victory, we acknowledge that there is still work to be done, including post-trial motions and possibly more appeals. However, this verdict sends a clear message to corporations that they will be held accountable for their actions and that we will continue to fight tirelessly for the rights of our clients.

Shooting the bull / Bonneville 2023
Last post by old.racer - April 23, 2023, 09:08:27 AM
PICKERINGTON, Ohio (April 18, 2023) — After inclement weather robbed the motorcycling community of racing on one of the most unique settings in all of sports in 2022, the AMA Land Speed Grand Championship at the famous Bonneville Salt Flats in Wendover, Utah, is back Aug. 27-31, and the year off has done nothing to extinguish the blazing speeds that dominate the annual event.

AMA Track Racing Manager Ken Saillant expressed his enthusiasm for the upcoming event, stating, "We are thrilled to announce the return to the salt for one of the most highly anticipated weeks in the world of motorcycling. After a year-long hiatus, we anticipate an exhilarating showcase of speed and skill, with the potential for new land speed records to be set."

The AMA Land Speed Grand Championship — also referred to as the Bonneville Motorcycle Speed Trials — is the premier motorcycle land-speed racing event in the world. Competitors of all backgrounds and investment converge on the other-worldly and pristine Bonneville Salt Flats with one goal in mind: go fast.

With Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme recognition, the AMA-sanctioned event allows racers to set AMA national records and FIM Land Speed World Records on machines that range from 50cc mini-bikes to 3,000cc streamliners.

"We are looking forward to welcoming our land-speed racers back to the Bonneville Salt Flats, especially after the rain-out event last year," said event director/owner Delvene Reber of Deliciate Promotions LLC. "The racers are excited to get back out there and continue to make history as they achieve their land speed records."

"We will once again be offering AMA national records alongside FIM inscribed World Records," Delvene added. "Of course, there is also a chance to just test your bike and collect a timing slip with the Run Watcha Brung class."

Event classes are determined by engine displacement, modification levels and various degrees of streamlining. Competitors range from weekend enthusiasts to professional race teams fielding million-dollar engineering masterworks.

MINNEAPOLIS, April 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Indian Motorcycle, America's First Motorcycle Company, today introduced the Indian Pursuit to its limited-edition Elite class of motorcycles and announced the return of its ultra-premium Chieftain Elite. Featuring premium componentry, each Elite model is crafted as the ultimate in American V-Twin style and exclusivity.


"When we first introduced the 2018 Chieftain Elite, we wanted to create an offering that was not just limited in quantity, but exclusive in nature with custom details straight from the factory," said Aaron Jax, Vice President of Indian Motorcycle. "Today, with jewel-like finishes, our Elite line of baggers and touring models truly represent the best-of-the-best and deliver a statement like nothing else on the road."

Indian Pursuit Elite
With only 150 units available worldwide, 2023 marks the debut for the Indian Pursuit Elite. Known as the most capable and refined American touring machine on the road, the Indian Pursuit Elite offers sophisticated style and unparalleled comfort and performance. Designed for riders who value the journey as much as the destination, the Indian Pursuit Elite is packed with premium amenities and advanced ride-enhancing technology to achieve a more comfortable ride.

Sophisticated Style
The Pursuit Elite's premium Super Graphite Metallic and Black Metallic paint with Shadow Bronze Chrome accents exude sophistication. Color-matched Elite badging and premium components complete the bike's beautiful design.

Best-In-Class Performance
Taking center stage of the Indian Pursuit Elite is the 108 cubic-inch, liquid cooled PowerPlus engine. With best-in-class 122 horsepower and 128 ft-lbs. of torque, the Indian Pursuit Elite delivers incredible V-twin touring performance with unmatched passing power.

Premium Amenities & Ride Enhancing Technology
The Indian Pursuit Elite allows riders to enjoy long, epic rides in comfort and style. Electronically adjustable rear suspension preload from Fox® allows riders to adjust their preload for optimal comfort and handling under varying conditions. Whether riding solo, two-up or carrying more cargo – the electronically adjustable rear suspension preload is managed from the convenience of the bike's infotainment system. Plus, the Indian Pursuit Elite offers Smart Lean Technology using a Bosch® Inertial Measurement Unit to tune traction control, ABS, and torque for even more control and unsurpassed handling. Backlit switch cubes improve the rider's ability to see the bike's controls at night, while the Pathfinder Adaptive LED Headlight combined with Pathfinder S LED driving lights and saddlebag lights deliver improved visibility and more eye-catching style in dark conditions. Providing a luxurious ride experience, both rider and passenger get a heated seat with adjustable controls on the seat and infotainment system, and premium styling.

In addition, each Indian Pursuit Elite is equipped with an industry-leading seven-inch touchscreen powered by RIDE COMMAND and offers Apple CarPlay® integration, turn-by-turn navigation, Bluetooth® connectivity, one year of RIDE COMMAND+ connected features and more. Riders can cut through road and engine noise with Powerband Audio which works seamlessly with the RIDE COMMAND system to set the mood for the trip. Built-in amplifiers, a 9-band equalizer, and 16 speakers provide crystal clear sound at any speed. Equipped with remote-locking storage, riders can keep all cargo protected inside the spacious, weatherproof saddlebags and trunk. For riders looking to achieve further customization, a quick release low profile trunk is available as a color-matched accessory.

Chieftain Elite
Designed for riders who demand the best of the best and want to stand out from the crowd, the 2023 Chieftain Elite features meaner and more aggressive styling with custom-inspired details straight from the factory. With only 175 units available globally the Chieftain Elite is a limited build and highly exclusive.

Custom-Inspired Style
The new Chieftain Elite's eye-catching paint scheme featuring Super Graphite Smoke is complemented by premium Shadow Bronze chrome finishes and Indian Motorcycle headdress floorboards.

Offering an even more custom look, the Chieftain Elite's open fender showcases a new 10-spoke precision machined front wheel. Standard to the Chieftain Elite is fender-to-fender, as the Adaptive Pathfinder LED headlight and rear saddlebag LED lights provide head-turning style at night. An adjustable tinted flare windshield raises or lowers to the rider's preferred position with the push of a handlebar-mounted button for ultimate comfort.

Unmatched, Air-Cooled Performance
Packing the most powerful Indian Motorcycle air-cooled engine, the Thunderstroke 116, the Chieftain Elite delivers 126 ft-lbs of torque. Rear cylinder deactivation improves rider comfort when riding through slower traffic, while three selectable ride modes, including Tour, Standard and Sport, allow riders to adjust the bike's throttle response to match their riding style.

Premium Amenities & Ride-Enhancing Technology
Like the Indian Pursuit Elite, the Chieftain Elite features the seven-inch touchscreen display powered by RIDE COMMAND with Apple CarPlay®, GPS with navigation, and RIDE COMMAND+ features, like live traffic and weather overlays, and a vehicle locator feature. As standard equipment, the 2023 Chieftain Elite features backlit switch cubes, an integrated PowerBand audio system, and includes ABS, keyless ignition, tire pressure monitoring, as well as weatherproof and remote-locking saddlebags with more than 18 gallons of storage. For riders looking to personalize their ride, color matched accessories are available including a quick release touring and low-profile trunk, as well as hard lower fairings.

Pricing for Indian Pursuit Elite and Chieftain Elite begin at $39,999 and $35,499, respectively, and will begin shipping to dealers around the world in spring 2023.

JAKARTA, Indonesia, March 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- SMOOT Motor, the first smart electric motorcycle brand without charging in Indonesia, welcomes and supports Government's incentives where Indonesians can enjoy an IDR 7 million (approx. USD $475) subsidy when buying a new electric motorcycle starts from 20th March - 31th December 2023. Accelerating the use of EVs is now increasingly crucial, not only in supporting the achievement of carbon emission reduction targets but also in encouraging reductions in fuel subsidies in Indonesia.


SMOOT Smart electric motorbikes have TKDN certificates (manufactured local content level) of 47.61% by the Ministry of Industry. After subsidy, SMOOT Tempur Facelift price went from IDR 18,500,000 to IDR 11,500,000 (OTR JADETABEK). In April, SMOOT ZUZU, the newest model with a more stylish retro design will also be presented to participate in this subsidy program.


Different from other electric motorbikes, SMOOT Motor is here as the right solution for riders to overcome range anxiety and increase operational efficiency. By adopting SWAP technology or a battery exchange system from SWAP Energy, SMOOT users can easily exchange their motorcycle batteries at 1,000+ SWAP Station strategic points spread across Alfamidi, Alfamart, Dan+Dan, BP-AKR, Circle-K, Shell, Haus, Martabak Pecenongan 78, Family Mart. As the largest Swap Battery ecosystem in Indonesia, SWAP Energy ensures SMOOT Electric Motorcycle users can carry on their journeys with just 9 seconds.

In addition, SMOOT smart electric motorbike users are also supported by the smart application "SWAP" as a platform to top up travel mileage packages which is very easy with cashless payment like OVO and GoPay. With a top-up system that is only around Rp. 160-175 per kilometre, riders enjoy the pay as you go system. Through this SWAP application, users can monitor and control the status of the motorbike and battery in the palm of your hand.

SMOOT Smart Electric Motors Without Charge is the right choice to take subsidies, as it is highly advantageous for riders when it comes to speed, cost efficiency and convenience. Battery swapping is indeed much faster than charging and Swap Energy offers lifetime warranty so that users have a peace of mind about battery health.

PT. SMOOT MOTOR INDONESIA "SMOOT Motor" is the first smart electric motor without charging in Indonesia. As a solution to the needs of people who will switch to electric vehicles with long distances, SMOOT Electric Motors uses the battery exchange ecosystem from SWAP Energy and can be exchanged at any time at the nearest 1,000+ strategic locations. SMOOT MOTOR has released two interesting models, namely SMOOT TEMPUR and SMOOT ZUZU. SMOOT Smart electric motorbike won a prestigious award in the Indonesian automotive world, the OTOMOTIF Award 2022 as the best electric scooter motorbike. (

About SWAP
SWAP Energi Indonesia is an environmentally friendly energy provider company that has a "swapping model" battery swap ecosystem. With more than 1,000+ Swap points, SWAP Energi is the largest battery exchange station provider company in Indonesia. In addition to the battery exchange ecosystem, SWAP also provides a smart application "SWAP" which is a platform for electric motorbike users to top-up their kilometre quota and monitor the status of the motorbike and battery carefully. In December 2022 yesterday, SWAP Energy won a global award from the 2022 World Summit Award (WSA) in the "Environment & Green Energy" category as a company that has a positive impact on environmental and energy sustainability. SWAP Energi continues to develop and expand its battery exchange station points to 10,000 points in the near future to provide the best convenience for its users.
