BMW New Boxer Cruiser Revival Birdcage Custom

in Lux Life by

BMW was famous for its bikes that were side-by-side to a Harley Davidson. Many people thought that BMW is going to stop the production of this boxer engine for its bikes, due to emission problems, but in collaboration with a Custom Works Zon, from Japan, they made a new stylish motorcycle.

An important feature in a brand-new bike is the innovative engine that, not like the R9-T, is not that dangerous for the environment. This bike has an 1800 cubic centimeters engine and an air-cooler engine similar to Indian and Harley Davidson.

Features and Specifications

For the production of this motorcycle, responsibility goes to a company called The Revival Birdcage, from the United States. Almost every part of the bike is handmade, including the footrests and handlebars, and the frame is from titanium. The engine is customized and can be seen from almost every angle because of the frame that is well designed and almost transparent.

A full specification is not available at the moment, but everyone is expecting a more powerful engine than a regular R9T, which has 110 horsepower and can achieve the maximum speed of 220 kilometers per hour. The collaboration of the BMW Motorrad and the Custom Works Zon lasts for a long time. The Japanese company was founded in 2003 and since that, they are famous for their custom works. For the BMW reworks, they are using parts similar to those from the bikes from the 1960s, but now they are made with chrome and carbon. Also, the fuel tank, seat and front trim are all handmade from sheet metal.

This cooperation was a great deal since the BMW was looking for the way to get on the market of the United States, where big boxer engines will always be successful. It was not simple to turn the old fashion looking bikes into something that today can be on the roads. The main reason for that is the regulation of the emission from the engine, and every vehicle has to pass the Euro5 regulations.

The official motorcycle will be available for customers at the end of 2019. The BMW didn’t say anything about new models of bikes, but since this collaboration with Custom Works Zon looks incredible, we can maybe expect some more from them.

in Lux Life by

In today’s automotive industry, electrically driven vehicles are not a novelty on the market at all, however, a company named Fuell will soon introduce its new machines in New York. It’s all about electric bikes called Fluid and Flow, and they are quite attracted to our attention. In fact, Flow is an electric bicycle, while Fluid belongs to electric motorcycles. The official launch of new vehicles will take place on April 23, 2019.

Fuell has founders who are experienced in the business

Img source: electricmotorcycles.news

The best word to describe the three founders of this company is certainly ‘experience’. Erik Buell is the person whose name was behind Buell Motorcycles, a company that was once owned by a well-known name in the world of motorcycles, Harley Davison. Also, Buell used to work as an engineer in the same company. We must say that Buell is a member of the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame as well as that he is establisher of Erik Buell Racing. He is the CTO of Fuell, as well.

In addition to him, another key person in Fuell is Francois-Xavier Terny, who is the CEO of the company. His name is also related to Vanguard Moto Inc., which was co-founded by him. A third person who is equally important in Fuell’s three-person team is Frédéric Vasseur. He is the man who established Spark Racing Technology, a company that deals with Formula E. Also, Vasseur has been part of several Formula 1 teams, including Sauber F1 and Renault F1.

Now, when you know who is Fuell’s most important people, look at the features of the new machines that will soon be presented.

Fuell Flow

First, let’s look at the features of a new motorcycle called Flow. The most remarkable thing you can notice when you look at this machine is that there is no chain or belt. This became possible thanks to a specially developed wheel-motor that is fitted to the rear of this motorcycle. Another thing that attracted our attention is the connected dashboard.

As for power, Flow is made in two versions, Flow-1 with 15 horsepower and Flow-1S with 47 horsepower. Since it is an electric vehicle, we must take into account that it takes a certain amount of time for its recharging. However, Flow takes only 30 minutes to complete recharge. The built-in battery will allow you to ride 125 miles on one charge. At first glance, Fuell Flow looks like a motorcycle that is quite comfortable for driving even on long distance journeys. If you consider this modern way of transport ideal for you and you are ready to give up traditional motorcycles, you will have to pay $10,995 for one like this.

Fuell Fluid

Now let’s look at some specifications of a bicycle called Fuell Fluid. As well as the aforementioned motorcycle, this bike will have two of its versions, Fluid-1 which has a power of 250W as well as a maximum speed of 20 miles per hour that can be reached, while the second version of the Fluid-1S comes with twice as much power of 500W, as well as a higher maximum speed of 28 miles per hour.

Some common things for both versions are 74 pound-feet of torque and 980 Wh of capacity. This electric bike can be recharged at home, however, we do not currently know how much time is needed for this action. As for the price, for Fuell Fluid you will have to pay $3,295.

 

VSY and Hot Lab collaborated on a new 67m explorer yacht concept

in Lux Life by

Italian yacht manufacturer called Viareggio Superyachts (VSY) has revealed interesting new details and renderings regarding their news 67 meters long explorer yacht concept, which they developed in collaboration with Hot Lab, another Italian luxury superyacht design company.

First revealed during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show of last year, this steel and aluminum 1130GT yacht is going to feature naval architecture developed by VSP and Marin, and engineering work performed by VSY. On the other hand, Hot Lab designers did both exterior and interior designs.

The design painter working for Hot Lab, Michele Dragoni, explained at one point that the project was “built around a concept that is very faithful to the original explorer yacht concept”.

Some of the key examples of what he means include a classic bow design as well as a chunky superstructure, both resembling many other rugged working boats and research vessels. The rest of the key elements and features are the main deck, with the aft part left completely flush to the deck.

Img source: yachtemoceans.com

Moving on, the access to the beach club from the main deck is through the large hatch, while there is a small panoramic sundeck that resembles a “crow’s nest” that sits at the top of the yacht superstructure. This is a nod to “the legendary age of sail”, when all ships had something similar.

The aforementioned aft deck part is left wide open, which allows for a multitude of freestanding sun loungers, sofas or other seating areas.

Because there are no staircases built into the transom, this entire section is able to fold out, in order to create a full beam swimming platform that serves as the superyacht beach club. In addition, the upper deck features a glass side infinity pool, something that looks amazing wherever it stands.

Mr. Dragoni also added, “The play on alternating full and empty spaces as one climbs from one deck to another in the beautiful superstructure is most probably the most characteristic stylistic feature of the exteriors.”

Regarding the inside of the vessel and the interior décor, it is described as “fairly classic”, combining a choice of two layouts available for the customers. They can feature either six cabins or seven cabins as their desired layout.

Antonio Romano, another employee at Hot Lad, said, “The common denominator is represented by the presence of large windows on three of the four decks, which literally flood the interior with natural light.”

The owner’s suite located on the upper deck will benefit from stunning 180-degree views, his and hers bathrooms, as well as a private study. Furthermore, the sky lounge sports glazed windows on three separate sides, making this the spot to be on the ship.

Ridiculously expensive watches are one of the status symbols rich people love to wear, even if they are relaxing by the pool.

What Is Glove Fitment

in Lux Life/Style by

The heat invites on many occasions to leave the gloves parked. We tend to give little importance, but gloves are essential protection for riding a motorcycle or moped. Many times, especially in summer, we ignore this garment both in town and on the road, putting our hands in danger in the event of an accident. When it comes to purchasing new motorcycle gloves, the importance of a good fit can’t be overly emphasized.

You spend a lot of time making sure motorcycle jackets fit perfectly, and you should spend just as much time choosing the right glove fitment. Here are a few tips for choosing a pair of gloves that fit comfortably and snuggly.

source: backaline.com

Use the Motorcycle Grip Test

A pair of gloves might feel great when your fingers are straight, but the real test of a good fit is the motorcycle grip test. While wearing the gloves, pretend you’re grabbing onto your motorcycle grips. If the gloves are snug without feeling uncomfortably tight, you’re in business. You should also be able to easily operate your turn signals and other controls without feeling like your circulation is being cut off.

Select a Glove Type

Different types of gloves fit differently based on their intended usage. For example, touring gloves are primarily designed for comfort during long-distance riding. They should give you plenty of dexterity with adequate protection. Racing gloves, on the other hand, should fit more snugly and should be built with pre-curved fingers. All weather riding gloves are intentionally bulkier because they come with added insulation. If we have a fall, however simple, hands are usually the first parapet for the driver, because during the accident tends to put your hands to avoid the blow, so they are the most damaged part of the body.

An example of this imagines the repercussion of an accident on the road, where people drive at 90 kilometers per hour, or in the city, where the speed is usually 50 kilometers per hour. In these cases, the gloves would protect the hands from cuts and wounds. In summer, the finest and unfilled have ventilation, which promotes perspiration and results in a greater grip when driving the motorcycle. On the other hand, in winter they protect from the cold and prevent the appearance of chilblains and redness due to the low temperatures.

Select the Right Material

Keep in mind that leather is slightly stretchy, while textile gloves maintain their original size over time. So, if you’re going for a new pair of leather gloves, choose a pair that’s slightly tighter than you’d normally wear. They’ll stretch a bit with consistent wear and will end up forming to your hands. Once broken in, you can’t beat the comfort of a great pair of leather gloves.

If you opt for textile gloves, you don’t want to make the mistake of going too small, since they won’t stretch out. If you’re right between sizes, it’s better to go up a size than down. You want to be able to move those fingers freely, without feeling too much tightness in the knuckles.

Now that you know what factors influence glove fitment, it’s time to go out and find the perfect gloves for your rides.

Essential Mods for Your New Motorcycle

in Lux Life by

Your motorcycle is really an extension of yourself. You can’t enjoy it to the full unless it looks and sounds just the way you want. That is where mods come in, and there are plenty of great bike mods that will help you transform your machine into the ride you’ve always dreamed of.

The air filter

The air filter is what helps your engine breathe. The more clean air it gets, the better it will run. Aftermarket filters make a huge difference with motorcycles, helping them run faster and cleaner than they do off the line.

Of course, an aftermarket filter cost more than stock, but it’s definitely worth it over time. Performance filters provide so much more engine protection, the difference can be measured in tens of thousands of miles.

The windshield

When it comes to how much you enjoy your bike, your windshield can make a lot of difference. Nearly any basic bike will have have a windscreen, but is it doing what you want it to do for you? Does it provide the protection or tinting that you really need?

It’s not unheard of for stock windshields to be so bad that they whip the air current straight into your face as you ride. If you’re tired of fighting with ride turbulence or want to see more clearly, try updating your windshield.

Sliders

There are a couple of types of sliders, but whatever type you choose the idea is the same: a slider is meant to protect you during a slide. Swingarm sliders protect your arm when you have to lay it down really close to the road, and they have an auxiliary benefit, too.

If you have trouble lifting your bike, you’ll appreciate the way swingarm sliders let you lift the bike with ease. You can definitely lift your bike without them, but it’s easier and more stable with the sliders.

Img source: motor1.com

Tires

Your tires are as important as your bike itself. If you’ve just bought a new bike, you might even be wondering why you should ever consider new tires, given that the ones you currently have are brand new. The thing is that your motorcycle manufacturer doesn’t put their interest into the tires.

Manufacturers are concerned with the transmission, the powertrain, and the frame. The tires are fairly generic because it’s impossible to know what type of tire a client really needs. It all depends on what terrain you plan to ride on, so make sure your tires match your plans.

Better fenders

The fenders on a lot of motorcycles are pretty ugly. Stock fenders tend to be too bulky and can totally destroy the sleek look of a fine new bike. Manufacturers know that you’re likely to replace the fender, so they don’t put much thought into them.

The only important thing to remember here is that local laws may vary. Be sure to find out what the laws are in your city before you buy so you can be sure of getting a fender kit that allows you to stay in compliance.

Turn signals

The turn signal on your bike might be one of the most crucial safety features you have, but it’s also one of those items manufacturers tend to ignore. They tend to churn out ugly turn signals that stick out and threaten your fairings in the event of an accident.

Aftermarket flush turn signals are more discreet when they’re off, but more noticeable when they’re on. They have a lower profile than stock signals, but they won’t hurt your bike in an accident and will enhance your safety by making you more visible.

There are lots of aftermarket mods you can make to your bike, and most of them will enhance your ride, your confidence, and your look on the bike. Just be sure to research regulations in your area to ensure you’re always in compliance with the law.
