Editor’s favorite concept bikes from 2014

2014 produced some of the best concept bikes we’ve seen in a while. As per tradition, the usual suspects made what we can only assume were their best efforts to outdo each other, and true to form, some impressed more than others. We’ve looked into the top three picks for 2014.


The BMW concept roadster, revealed at the 2014 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Italy, is a step up in appearance from 2013’s BMW concept ninety which was retro-styled to exemplify the spirit of BMW Motorrad’s 90th anniversary. For those of you who love a sleek, modern aesthetic, the BMW concept roadster is bound to stir up some emotion. The Boxer Twin powered machine not only looks good, it can go too. Although BMW hasn’t officially released the bike’s weight, its compact build brings the sense that it shouldn’t be too heavy which if true, should produce a scintillating power to weight ratio given that the 1,170cc liquid-cooled Boxer produces an impressive 125hp and 92lb-ft of torque. The racing inspired seat, and the general rear section is perhaps the bike’s most striking features. Milled from a solitary chunk of aluminium, the rear section gives the bike a crouched, attacking shape which could be frightening for the faint-hearted. The concept is a dream for bike lovers, but unfortunately, this somewhat extreme concept is likely to have trouble getting approved for road use. 

This time round, Ducati seems to have gone for comfort and versatility more than anything. Incorporating three riding modes (urban, touring and sport), an adjustable seat and adjustable passenger grab handles; the Monster 1200 is a bike for any occasion. Safety for both the passenger and driver is also a major concern for Ducati as is made evident by the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP) which is standard along with the 9MP ABS system and the 8-level Ducati Traction Control. The Ducati Monster 1200 has a raw iconic design which appeals to the less is more’ kind of rider. At about 209kg, it is powered by a liquid-cooled, L-Twin second generation of the Testastretta 11 DS engine. With 4 valves per cylinder, and dual spark (DS) ignition which ensures quick complete combustion, the Monster’s 1198cc engine delivers a maximum of 135hp and 87lb-ft of torque which is more than enough power to get your juices flowing. Passionate riders love to take care of their bikes, but the Ducati Monster doesn’t really need all the attention, which is great. The valve clearance adjustment needs service after every 30,000km and an oil change is necessary after every 15,000km which reduces the cost of maintenance. The Ducati monster 1200 would make a great bike for everyday use.

Revealed at the Osaka motorcycle show, the Honda NM4 Vultus is one to look out for. The low, extended horizontal elements give a futuristic look which is akin to the CTX design concept. The bike is fully lit using LED and rides on an 18”, 200mm wide rear tire which gives an aggressive appearance from the back. The bikes massive front end, and a low seat at 25.59″ from the ground are definitely some of its most apparent features and add to the neo-futuristic’ look. However, at 745cc, the Honda’s twin clutch engine is a bit behind its competitors. Honda claims the concept is planned for production, though no dates were mentioned.

Car garage near me open saturday: Q&A: From car washer to dealership co-owner

A: There was a lot of big change because we were more of a mom and pop shop. [The former owners] lived in Florida, and I ran the store for them. So I had a lot more say in the day-to-day. When RFJ came in, one of the first things they did is, they wanted us to move from Reynolds and Reynolds to CDK — and understandably because the rest of their dealerships were on CDK. But it was like brain damage here because all these people had worked [on the Reynolds dealership management system] for so long. You just basically got rid of 15 years of experience and started fresh. In some cases, they didn’t make the transition. I had a title clerk. She did a great job on Reynolds and Reynolds, but she just did not make the transition. Before you know it, she didn’t know how to do her job anymore. So there was definitely some growing pains.

It’s no secret much of the market is overpriced and Gold’s conclusion was spot on. We are clearly shifting from a seller’s market to one that favors buyers, so long as sellers lower their prices. No need to panic, we sold roughly $1.9 billion in real estate around these parts last year, just off from 2017 when just over $2 billion traded hands. The forecast for the coming year is a bit less than both, but nothing drastic. The point is, the state of the local market remains strong for now, with perhaps a bit of a bumpy road ahead with the 2020 election year looming and an overabundance of high dollar inventory coming out of the ground.

Toyota warranty service phone number: 2019 Kia Cerato Review

A:  It is sometimes possible to achieve a higher price with a private sale however this reduces significantly if your vehicle is not presented correctly and is no longer under warranty. The private buyer today is looking to receive the same benefits they would by purchasing from a Dealer and expect huge reductions in price if they believe they are disadvantaged. Add to this the cost of preparing your vehicle to the same standards as Motor Dealers. Look at such items as Safety Certificates, Service, Tyres, Windscreen, Chips and Scratches, Detailing, and Advertising along with the need to be accessible and available at all times including weekends when prospective buyers will want to inspect your vehicle. It may not be the wise choice to have people you do not know, coming to your home.
