Honda DN-01 2009 Specs

Honda DN-01 2009

 

2009 Honda DN-01
The big news about the 2009 Honda DN-01 is that it is automatic. The new HFT transmission allows the rider to shift into six pre-set ratios, with the option of functioning as a Continuously Variable Transmission, meaning no shifts at all. The DN-01 has sports bike styling, takes the bumps like a touring bike, but rides like a cruiser; what else could you ask for? Honda claims that this bike, the world’s first cross-over bike, is nothing like you’ve ever seen before. Powered by a 680cc V-twin engine with shaft drive and no shifting at all, I have to say that riding this machine should be comfortable. This bike may not be as “fun to ride” as, for example, the CBR1000RR or the ST1300, but it doesn’t have to be; it’s a cross-over. So if you want a full-on sport bike, the CBR1000 or CBR600 will surely satisfy your need for speed, but if you want something that is comfortable to ride, performs like a sport bike, and operates with just the twist of the throttle. The 2009 Honda DN-01 should be something to keep in mind.

Bajaj Domestic Motorcycle Sales Rise 51%
From a low of 61,546 units in December 2008, Bajaj domestic motorcycle sales have grown progressively over the last quarter and by as much as 51% in March 2009 to 92,947 units. Total motorcycle sales (including exports) for March 2009 were up 12% over December 2008 to 132,210 units.  This growth has been led primarily by the XCD 135 DTS-Si which sold 21,883 units in March 2009, its second month of sales.  

Bajaj expects even stronger growth in the first quarter of FY2010 powered by the continuing success of the XCD 135 DTS-Si as also the launch of product upgrades off the Pulsar platform.

Exports for the year at 772,519 units represented a growth of 25% over FY 2008.

A HISTORIC WIN FOR BUELL

Buell: A Ray of Hope for America

Tyler Hopper
AllAboutBikes Staff-Writer
In an economic era that questions the future of American companies, Buell provides a glimmer of hope, that American companies aren’t ready to be put out to pasture just yet.  Claiming victories in the 2009 AMA Daytona Sportbike season, it is the first time that an American manufacturer has won in a premier AMA road racing class since 1972 when Cal Rayborn, riding a Harley-Davidson XR750, won an AMA Grand National race at Laguna Seca.  Danny Eslick took the points lead after his third win of the season Sunday in the Suzuki Superbike Showdown at Road Atlanta.
The Buell 1125R ridden by Eslick was equipped with a stock crate engine, with the only modifications being an aftermarket exhaust system and recalibrated engine computer.  Some skeptics argue that the Buell has an unfair advantage due to the displacement of the engine, but a review of the lap times made evident that on his Buell 1125R, Eslick was only the third fastest for that particular race.
