The Honda NM4 is back for 2017

first_imgAll its power down to the rear wheel via an automatic six-speed with two automatic modes and manual mode also known as Honda’s DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) Honda has announced that they will be bringing back their NM4 for 2017. Reincarnated as one of the Japan’s major line up for 2018, the NM4 is the first of many that has been announced and confirmed by Honda.Those who have seen the ‘Ghost in the Shell’ spectacular movie starring the wonderful Scarlett Johansson will also notice that the bike she used in the movie known as the Honda NM4 Vultus or what most people would like to call it “Whoa…” closely followed by the sound of jaws dropping.Honda has been known to push the boundaries on how a motorcycle should look and perform for many years now. They’ve also been playing with how each motorcycle type should not be restricted to its own genre or segment. The NM4 is a perfect representation of this as it is a combination between a sleek futuristic cruiser and functions like a scooter.The current NM4 is equipped with a 670cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin SOHC engine which drives all its power down to the rear wheel via an automatic six-speed with two automatic modes and manual mode. This is also known as Honda’s DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) system. CLICK HERE to know more on what and how the Honda DCT system works.According to American Honda’s Manager of Motorcycle Marketing Communications, “From time to time over the years, Honda has pushed the envelope with unconventionally styled models like the Pacific Coast, Rune, Big Ruckus and DN-01,”“The NM4 is very much in this tradition, and while it’s not for everyone, that’s really the point; the model has proven to be a hit with a dedicated segment of consumers from a surprisingly varied array of demographics, including tech-savvy millennials but also veteran tourers and women. Those that buy NM4s tend to put a lot of miles on them, so we’re pleased to welcome it as our first street bike for 2018.”While we are not sure on when (or if) the latest generation NM4 will be on our lovely shores, it will be in the American market starting in June 2017.

Dortmund sign Birmingham’s highly-rated teenager Bellingham

first_img(Reuters) – Birmingham City midfielder Jude Bellingham has joined Germany’s Borussia Dortmund on a “long-term” contract, the Bundesliga club said yesterday. British media had reported earlier this month that the 17-year-old, who was a target for Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea, had signed a five-year contract with the Bundesliga side for around 26 million pounds ($32.73 million).Bellingham will leave the Championship (second tier) club to link up with England international Jadon Sancho, who left Manchester City to sign for Dortmund at 17.Dortmund did not specify how long England under-17 player Bellingham’s contract was for. “I can’t thank Birmingham City enough for what the club did for me – not just this season, but since I came to the club when I was seven,” Bellingham told Dortmund’s official website https://www.bvb.de/News/Uebersicht/Borussia-Dortmund-verpflichtet-Bellingham.“Now I’m really excited to join one of the biggest clubs in Europe. BVB’s path, but especially how they help young players to improve, made the decision very easy for me personally and for my whole family.“I can’t wait to play in one of the most beautiful stadiums in the world, hopefully in front of over 80,000 spectators as soon as possible.” Bellingham has played 40 games in the Championship this season, scoring four goals and making three assists.last_img read more

Man City could be tested by counter-attacking Real, says Rooney

first_img(Reuters) – Manchester City struggle to prevent the best teams from scoring against them and their central defenders could be targeted in Friday’s Champions League clash against Spanish champions Real Madrid, former England skipper Wayne Rooney said. Pep Guardiola’s City lead Real after they won the away leg of their last-16 tie 2-1 in March, before Europe’s elite club competition was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.Rooney, who won the competition with Manchester United in 2008, said City have their best opportunity yet to lift the trophy for the first time.“City may never have a better chance to win the Champions League,” Rooney wrote in his column for the Sunday Times. “Sergio Ramos is suspended which is a huge loss to the Real defence and I think City will score. Whether they are solid enough at the back themselves is my only question.“Real will target their centre halves and it’s a worry that this season every other (Premier League) ‘Big Six’ club beat City… This shows Guardiola’s team can struggle to keep the best sides out.”Rooney said he expected Real to allow City to dominate possession and then aim to hit them on the counter. “I saw Zinedine Zidane do it in his first spell as Real coach when he played against Guardiola-style teams in big games, and it brought him successes,” Rooney added.“Yet my money is still on City. They don’t have to chase the game. They don’t have to score. They can even afford to lose 1-0 and go through, and in the first leg they surprised Madrid by sitting in themselves.“It was the first time I’ve seen Guardiola play like that and I’ve a feeling he’ll do the same at the Etihad. It could be a game of cat-and-mouse.”last_img read more

Dodge City holds Driver Appreciation Night

first_imgBy Lonnie WheatleyDODGE CITY, Kan. (July 29) – Cole Traugott, Robert Elliott, Michael Pepper and Matt O’Hair were Driver Appreciation Night feature winners at Dodge City Raceway Park.Traugott reeled off his fourth Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified win in his last four starts atop the 3/8-mile clay oval. He played the role of spoiler by taking the lead away from Jack Kirchoff just three laps shy of the checkered flag in the 20-lapper.The IMCA SportMods came down to the final laps as well with Elliott battling past Kale Roach just two laps from the end of the 20-lapper for his first DCRP win.In the 15-lap IMCA Stock Car feature, Pepper took advantage of a late caution to reel off his fifth consecutive win and seventh of the year overall.While Pepper tried to battle through the pack, it looked for much of the way that Ron Hartman would put a stop to the streak.  Even when Pepper finally worked his way into second with five laps to go, Hartman’s lead seemed insurmountable.But a caution one lap later changed the game, with Pepper racing by on the 13th lap to take the win ahead of Hartman.The 15-lap IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock feature was a barnburner as well, with O’Hair fending off Brady Bencken and Duane Wahrman to capture his third win of the year.After a pair of early melees, O’Hair raced into the lead from the sixth starting position on the se­cond lap.  Bencken and Wahrman were hot on his heels though, with the lead trio racing under a blanket over the latter half of the race.last_img read more
