Shooting the bull / Can-Am electric off-road bike
Last post by Biketographer - August 08, 2022, 07:29:17 AM
VALCOURT, QC, Aug. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ - BRP Inc. (TSX:DOO) (NASDAQ:DOOO) is proud to announce that, in addition to working on electrifying its existing product lines, it is seizing opportunities to enter new markets with game-changing electric products. Today, BRP unveils the first two models of its Can-Am all-electric motorcycle lineup, the Can-Am Origin and Can-Am Pulse. Building on its motorcycle legacy, BRP is changing the power dynamic and opening the road to a new generation of riders and electric vehicle enthusiasts. What's more, BRP is announcing a completely new electric hydrofoil board bearing the Sea-Doo signature – the Sea-Doo Rise. All three products will be available in mid-2024.

BRP_Inc__BRP_PUSHES_FORWARD_WITH_EV_PLAN_REVEALING_ALL_ELECTRIC.jpg

"Today, our story of innovation reaches new heights with the reveal of market-shaping electric products that will enhance consumer experience on the road and on the water, " said José Boisjoli, President and CEO of BRP. "Half a century ago, Can-Am roared to victory on the track and the trail, and today, a new legacy begins. With the Can-Am Origin and Can-Am Pulse, the first two models of our electric 2-wheel family, we are gearing up to reclaim our motorcycle heritage by crafting thrilling riding experiences for a whole new generation."

Mr. Boisjoli added: "With the Sea-Doo Rise, BRP is leveraging its expertise to address an untapped market category and further position the company for future growth. We have set out to be the key actor in growing and democratizing the hydrofoiling watersport industry. In true BRP fashion, we designed a product that is easy to use and adaptable for all skill levels, making it accessible for all those seeking to rise above the water."

Building on its Motorcycle Legacy

The Can-Am Origin is a tribute to Can-Am's Track n' Trail heritage. This dual-purpose model is designed to bring new exhilaration to both the street and the trail for a more modern multi-terrain experience. The Can-Am Pulse is a balanced and agile motorcycle designed to immerse riders in the energy of the city and transform their daily commute into an electric joyride. Both models feature stunning, modern design, built to showcase state-of-the art technology, like the high-performance LED headlamp, a unique visual signature. Both models are also easier to use and to ride, for novices and seasoned riders alike. Without any need for a standard clutch and transmission, riders can just twist the throttle and go. Consumers will also appreciate the near-silent and vibration-free experience, as well as the smooth and precise power delivery even in tight, low speed situations.

While each model has its own distinct design, ergonomics and capabilities to satisfy different needs, both are powered by the all-new Rotax E-POWER technology, yielding highway-worthy speeds with plenty of horsepower and torque.

BRP plans on revealing full specs in August 2023, just in time to celebrate Can-Am's 50th anniversary. In the meantime, consumers can join the community and be the first to know when the future of motorcycle riding is ready to hit the road by visiting canammotorcycle.com.

Elevating the Watersports Industry

For over 50 years, Sea-Doo has been transforming the personal watercraft industry, and more recently, the pontoon category. Today, the iconic brand sets out to democratize hydrofoiling. Offering different experiences and providing a variety of surfing positions for all skill levels, this new electric hydrofoil board is perfect for the entire family and for those seeking to rise above the water and enjoy a more athletic Sea-Doo Life.

BRP_Inc__BRP_PUSHES_FORWARD_WITH_EV_PLAN_REVEALING_ALL_ELECTRIC.jpg

The Sea-Doo Rise is one of its kind, cleverly designed with innovative and dynamic features that transform the board as riders gain experience over time. Those who are new to hydrofoiling can choose to ride on the water without foiling, or to partially or fully deploy the wing when they are ready to foil above water. Very accessible, simple to use and easy to charge, the all-electric Sea-Doo Rise will provide peace of mind by minimizing worries and maximizing fun on the water!

Full specs are expected to be revealed in August 2023. To stay informed on Sea-Doo Rise news, visit the Sea-Doo website.

Shooting the bull / Vision Dash 180 Motorcycle Cam...
Last post by Biketographer - August 06, 2022, 07:02:19 AM
TAIPEI, July 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Creact Inc. introduces its latest technology through its dashboard camera system, Vision 180. As one of the startups coming through Taiwan Tech Arena (TTA), Creact is looking to make an impact in the motorcycle tech scene. With a rider's safety and convenience at the forefront, Vision 180 offers riders comprehensive control and the significant elimination of unnecessary distraction through its innovative Head-Up Display (HUD) system. The start-up will be showcasing its technology at the Taiwan Tech Arena (TTA) Pavilion

image_5019932_5984221.jpg

Vision 180 dual-lens dash camera is a highly efficient and intuitive piece of technology that is easily installed onto a helmet. This allows riders to access vital information through its low power LED sourced HUD when riding. Live images from the installed dual-lens camera are projected on to the rider's field of vision, creating an Augmented Reality (AR) feed of vital information, such as speed, navigation, and camera function. Other information accessible through the HUD includes music and phone features which eliminates the riders' need to look down on their dashboard or phones.

Vision 180 is equipped with one of the best wide-angle lens systems in the dashcam market. The feature will ensure all blind spots around the rider is covered at all times, giving riders access to a complete picture of their surroundings during a ride. Vision 180's HUD can double as a rear-view mirror, as the driver can get a rear-view image retrieved from the rear camera.

"Vision 180 is a manifestation of our hard work and dedication towards practicing creative innovation as a company. Riding a motorcycle is dangerous without any distractions, so what we have done is created a piece of effective technology that eliminates unnecessary distraction for riders. Our product is compatible with most helmets already on the market, so it will decrease the barrier of entry for many people. This is an important difference between Vision 180 and other helmet-oriented solutions." said David Liang, President of Creact.

With Creact positioning themselves as a company that is driven by creativity, the Vision 180 dashcam system is their flagship product. It reflects their ambition to combine software, hardware and services for innovative offerings to the marketplace. The Vision 180 dashcam is planned to be released to Japanese market in early 2022.

Participating at CES 2022 with over 2100 exhibiting companies, hundreds of thought leaders from around the world and significant consumer interest, the event will be a vital platform for Vision 180 to reach a wider audience around the world.

Shooting the bull / Motorcycle thefts are up 26%
Last post by Biketographer - August 06, 2022, 06:58:05 AM
DES PLAINES, Ill., Aug. 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- It might be a beautiful summer day for a ride, but motorcycle owners should know there is a higher chance of theft as they hit the road. Motorcycles have been increasingly targeted for theft, according to the newly released National Insurance Crime Bureau's (NICB) 2021 Vehicle Type Theft Report.

Despite a 3% decrease from 2020 to 2021, motorcycle thefts are still up 26% overall from 2019. Of the nearly 1 million total vehicles stolen last year, 51,291 of them were motorcycles. August was the hottest month with almost 6,000 cycles swiped.

In 2021, August was the hottest month for motorcycle theft with almost 6,000 cycles swiped.

"We've seen surges in thefts of all types of motor vehicles throughout 2021, and motorcycle thefts are no exception, especially in the summer months," said David Glawe, president and CEO of NICB. "The economy, supply chain issues, and the value of precious metals and vehicle parts has certainly played a consequential role with skyrocketing crime during the year. Motorcycles are expensive and more difficult to secure than other vehicles, making them prime targets for thieves. We continue to urge all riders to take steps to protect their property."

The top 10 motorcycle manufactures most frequently stolen in 2021 accounted for 78% of all stolen motorcycles in 2021. Leading the pack was Honda (10,282), Yamaha (8,185), Kawasaki (5,904), Harley-Davidson (5,811), and Suzuki (4,890). Of those almost 52,000 motorcycles stolen, less than half have been recovered with the NICB study indicating that only 42% were found.

California leads the nation once again with 9,345 stolen rides. Not too far behind is Texas (4,263), Florida (3,698), New York (2,662), and Washington state (1,947).

As thousands of bikers gather in Sturgis and countless other motorcycle owners take advantage of the remaining summer months outdoors, NICB is recommending the following advice to reduce the chances of motorcycle theft:

    Use common sense; park in well-lit areas, lock your ignition and remove your keys.
    Lock your cycle even when stored in a garage. Consider investing in an alarm system.
    Don't store your title in your motorcycle's storage compartment.
    Place unique markings on your motorcycle and take photos of them. If your bike is ever stolen, you can use these markings to identify your property.
    Don't walk off while leaving it idle as this will make it a prime target for thieves.

Should your vehicle be stolen, call law enforcement and your insurer immediately. NICB data shows that reporting a vehicle as soon as possible after it is stolen increases the chance of recovery. 

REPORT FRAUD: Anyone with information concerning insurance fraud or vehicle theft can report it anonymously by calling toll-free 800.TEL.NICB (800.835.6422) or submitting a form on our website.

ABOUT THE NATIONAL INSURANCE CRIME BUREAU: Headquartered in Des Plaines, Ill., the NICB is the nation's leading not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to combatting and preventing insurance crime through Intelligence, Analytics, and Operations; Education and Crime Prevention; and Strategy, Policy, and Advocacy. The NICB is supported by more than 1,200 property and casualty insurance companies and self-insured organizations. NICB member companies wrote over $582 billion in insurance premiums in 2021, or more than 82% of the nation's property-casualty insurance. That includes more than 96% of the nation's personal auto insurance. To learn more, visit www.nicb.org.

Shooting the bull / Race Purse Increased to Sport'...
Last post by Biketographer - August 03, 2022, 07:45:42 AM
PALMETTO, Fla. and MORGANTOWN, W.Va., Aug. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Feld Motor Sports, Inc. and MX Sports Pro Racing today jointly announced a partnership that will see the formation of the SuperMotocross World Championship. Under this new alliance, the two companies will work together to grow both, Supercross and Motocross, creating a new championship platform that will reward the sport's best athletes with a $10 million purse - the richest offering in either sports' history.

Starting in 2023, the professional racing season will expand and culminate with the SuperMotocross World Championship on Saturday, October 14 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California.

"With the creation of the SuperMotocross World Championship, we are taking a significant step towards growing the sport into a series that will be better suited for the expanding global marketplace and its impact on our fans and sponsors," said Kenneth Feld, Chair and CEO of Feld Entertainment, Inc. "As media and technology continue to evolve, SuperMotocross will be able to capitalize on these innovations to reach new audiences and grow exponentially in the coming years."

Feld_Motor_Sports_Monster_Energy_AMA_Supercross_Championship.jpg

The Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship and the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship will both continue to crown their own champions at the conclusion of their respective series'. Afterwards, the top 22 250cc athletes and the top 22 450cc athletes in combined Supercross and Pro Motocross points will qualify to compete in the two SuperMotocross Playoff Rounds and World Championship round for the SuperMotocross #1 plate and sport's richest payout.

"We are celebrating 50 years of American Motocross this season and the creation of the SuperMotocross World Championship and working in unison with Supercross may be one of the most significant changes the sport has ever undertaken," said Carrie Coombs-Russell, Chief Executive Officer, MX Sports Pro Racing. "This collaboration will create the only off-road racing series on the planet that provides a fully supported infrastructure, from amateur development to the professional ranks for global competitors to race on the world's most challenging and demanding tracks."

All seven of the primary original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) – KTM, Husqvarna, GASGAS, Kawasaki, Honda, Yamaha, and Suzuki, are excited about this new partnership and are fully committed to competing with their race teams. Factory-supported racing efforts have been the backbone of professional racing in the United States for more than five decades. Their commitment ensures that the highest level of racing competition will continue in Supercross, Pro Motocross and throughout the SuperMotocross Playoffs and World Championship.

"The creation of the SuperMotocross World Championship is the biggest and most positive step to ever happen in our sport," said Roger De Coster – Director of Motorsports, KTM Group North America. "Supercross and Motocross racing in the U.S. is very strong right now and this investment from Feld Motor Sports and MX Sports Pro Racing will bring the next generation of fans to motorcycling."

"The SuperMotocross World Championship is an important and necessary step forward for our sport," stated Chris Brull, Kawasaki Vice President of Marketing and Racing. "The collaboration between Feld Motor Sports and MX Sports Pro Racing further strengthens Kawasaki's commitment to this new world championship and to the already well-established and successful Supercross and Motocross championships."

The SuperMotocross World Championship will combine both disciplines of Supercross and Pro Motocross introducing a unique and distinct form of racing called SuperMotocross, hence becoming a new discipline for the sport. Custom-designed tracks will be built to showcase this new style of racing. World-class venues will allow room to integrate the best track designs from Supercross, Pro Motocross and now SuperMotocross, finally providing a stage where the sport's ultimate debate can be decided – who is the best in the world and ultimately crowning a new overall champion.

"As a manufacturer, it's great to see two of our valued partners collaborating to bring something new to our sport," said Brandon Wilson, Manager of Racing and Experiential Marketing, Honda Power Sports & Products. "Considering that this has been in the works for more than two years, we are excited to now finally be able to share this significant news. The SuperMotocross World Championship is going to add a lot of intrigue for everyone. Fans will have more opportunities to see their favorite riders and the most competitive racing, plus we'll now see who the best overall rider is."

"As the current and reigning champion in both Supercross and Motocross, we're extremely proud to have earned those titles battling the best competition on the planet," said Derek Brooks, Yamaha Motorcycle Product Line Manager. "The SuperMotocross World Championship is a unique, yet also natural next step for the sport as we work together to highlight the immense talent of the athletes who compete on our class-leading product."

Feld Motor Sports and MX Sports Pro Racing have worked together previously on industry related initiatives, none more significant than joining forces in the early days of the pandemic to save motorcycle racing in the United States. Both companies will continue to work together in a collaborative effort to continue growing the sport both domestically and abroad. Bringing together the leadership experience of both organizations and creating a unified rule book will ensure consistency across the series for both athletes and teams. Their combined marketing and operational expertise will strengthen and grow fan engagement through integrated media, promotional, sponsorship and activation programming across the racing season.

"We are inspired to see this new partnership and the creating of the SuperMotocross World Championship," said Chris Wheeler, Motorsports Manager for Suzuki Motor USA, LLC. "Suzuki is looking forward to racing in this new championship and competing at the highest level in Supercross, Motocross, and now the SuperMotocross World Championship."

The 2023 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship schedule will be announced in the coming weeks, followed by the 2023 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing schedule. Dates and venues for the upcoming SuperMotocross World Championship and additional details will be announced later in the year.
