“That 500 Is My 500”: Rossi Wants The MotoGP NSR500 Honda Never Sent

With an affluent racing career behind him and new sights set on his VR46 team’s debut for MotoGP, Valentino Rossi continues to be a legend in the racing industry. 


Recently, we learned that the Italian racer collects bikes that he has ridden for MotoGP – and there’s one, in particular, that’s coming with a bit of drama. 


Valentino Rossi with the NSR500 - a bike that he raced back when he was a part of the Honda team in 2001


According to a report from SuperBike Planet, Honda’s got a bike in their museum that was Rossi’s first MotoGP title-winning 500cc bike from 2001. That NSR500 was purportedly brought out for the racing legend to sit on at his career-ending GP at Valencia a few weeks back, ‘rekindling’ his desire to have it in his collection.

“I speak with Alberto, and I asked for – minimum – the 500, also because that 500 is my 500,” Rossi said in a statement on AutoSport.


“It’s the bike that Honda was supposed to give to me, and I was ready to take, I had already the place at home [for it]…but for some reason, the bike never arrived. I’m happy if Honda change the idea and gave me that one.”


“For sure, the bike will stay well, at a good temperature, and have a good place at my house.”

A reminder to the good readers: Rossi’s history with Honda isn’t the cleanest portfolio on the track.  Between Rossi’s leaving for Yamaha when Honda wanted the Italian to re-sign with HRC, and the bit of chaos between Rossi and Marc Marquez[where] Honda was on the verge of issuing ‘proof’ that Rossi had kicked Marquez’s Honda after the pair collided on-track in 2015 (but Honda was instructed by Dorna not to release the video footage)”, it’s safe to say that Rossi’s request for the bike might require more than a ‘pretty please.’

Alberto Puig, team boss for Honda, responded with the following when asked if Honda would consider Rossi’s request for the NSR500:


“Well, it’s a tricky story…soI cannot answer, but this bike is also very important for us because we have it in a museum. Honda is very proud of the titles that we got, and also with the titles that Valentino got for us together…so, I’m sure we want to have this as a very important trophy in our house to show to our fans that we were capable of winning that title with that bike.”

If we’re placing bets, my $5 is on Honda keeping the bike – though it would be amazing if Rossi could add the machine to his collection (especially given his collection is so extensive already –
check out some of his collection via a Youtube vid here).


We’ll keep you posted on any other updates as they come down from the pipeline; in the meantime, be sure to check out other related news from our archives, and as always – stay safe on the twisties.

Drifter 800 Only / Re: Oldy's Fiberblass Rear Fender
« Last post by coolwind57 on Today at 07:49:14 »
So I've had my rear fender from Oldy's for about a Month now.  I've got it epoxy-primered and ready for top coat probably on Wednesday this week.  

Just a few observations I'd like to share if any of you guys are considering Oldy's fiberglass fender:

#1.  Its a sturdy fiberglass fender, made of what I believe is chopped strand.  I may be wrong on the terminology, but there's no weaved mat--looks like blown-in fiber that you see on the underside  The top finish is excellent.  I'm not concerned about the underside and I'm still considering whether or not to put some type of coating on it.  Probably just fine without any.  

#2.  The original ABS (?) fender is much flimsier now that I have it removed.  And thinner.  No wonder they're prone to cracking.  There's bulk to the Oldy's.  The ABS fender has anchoring points where the wiring harness/chain guard mounts underneath.  Oldy's does not.  The stock chain guard is just like a plastic rail, so I suppose it would provide only minimal protection for the fender if the chain would explode.  It would also provide protection for the wiring harness, as the wiring harness is attached along the top of the chain guard.  My chain guard did have quite a bit of buildup from chain lube over the years and I had to scrub it considerably to get it clean.  I'll need to figure a way to mount the chain guard/wiring harness assembly without those anchoring points that the ABS fender has.  

#3.  Oldy's will ask you if you'd like them to include the tail light "bucket" area for those wanting to retain the original stock tail lamp.  They actually have to add this recessed area after the initial fender build up.  I chose to retain the stock setup, but was very tempted to do some kind of cool custom tail light.  

#4.  Paint matching, for me, was a toss up.  I took a painted piece to the local paint store and did the best i could to match.  I spend probably a couple hours reading what I could about the exactly proper paint code for my 2003, but ended up having to pick one out of a paint chip book they had there.  I went outside in the sunlight and everything to make a best choice.  I ended up with a GM color if I remember correctly.  I chose to use an acrylic enamel.  

#5.  Taking that old fender off was a involved process.  Drilling all the holes in the fiberglass fender will be hairy too.  I did choose to drill after the paint.  Might had been a better idea to drill out the holes and "dry fit" all the stuff first, but I've already committed to doing it afterwards and my fender sits  45-minutes away at the Aviation school I attend on nights.  If I had it to do over, I'd drill and dry fit before painting.  Oldy's did recommend using a universal "step bit" to drill out the holes, by the way.  

It would be nice to have this thing shot and reinstalled this weekend.  I'll keep you guys updated on how things go.

I have one that fits an 800 Drifter, only used it for about a month. From Bobbercycles.

I'd gladly ship it to you for $100. It's virtually brand new. I've got a bad back and I thought it would help. Ended up getting a Corbin solo seat.

Voxan Wattman Team Blasts Through 21 Electric Motorcycle Speed Records

[html]


Space Florida’s Launch and Landing Facility, formerly known as the Shuttle Landing Facility, is one of the longest runways in the world.  Its 30-year property agreement with NASA means that the facility has seen some brilliant machines rocket down the straightaway – and as of November 23rd, we can add ‘record-breaking electric speed demon’ to that portfolio.


The fast-as-bonkers bike that Voxman’s team registered to qualify for the ‘partially streamlined electric motorcycle under 300 kilograms’ speed record category was, according to RideApart, “done right…[according to] Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) regulations.”

“To qualify, a vehicle’s speed is measured from a flying start over a single kilometer, and in opposite directions,” explains the report. 


“Those two runs must be taken within two hours of one another, then averaged to find the final total speed number across the two runs.”


Electrek tells us that the Voxman team’s bike was “three bikes in streamlined, partially streamlined, and standard form” – which now explains how the bike went on to win in multiple further categories, drumming up a total of 21 speed records, according to the original press release from Voxman’s website, ‘Venturi’

“In less than a year, we have succeeded in lowering the motorcycle’s weight, while increasing its power and improving its stability,” celebrates Gildo Pastor, President of the Venturi Group. 


“Following the records we set in November 2020 in the ‘over 300 kg’ class, these 21 new records are another magnificent reward for the Venturi Group, for Max Biaggi, and for our valued partners, Saft, Michelin, and Mercedes.”

Triumph Celebrates Their Millionth Motorcycle With Special 01/01 Tiger 900


Congrats to Triumph for rolling their 1,000,000th bike off the belt last week!


To commemorate the occasion, the world’s largest UK-owned motorcycle manufacturer has, naturally, pimped out their celebration bike – or cele’bike’, if you will (I’ll see myself out).


What better choice of beastie for the millionth motorcycle (I’m assuming they plan the millionth) than the highly popular Triumph Tiger 900?

“Over the 31 years since we re-launched Triumph, we have shared so many great moments with our fans across the world,” enthuses CEO Nick Bloor last week at Triumph’s Hinckley headquarters. 


“From returning to the TT champions arena, to entering the MotoGP paddock with our Moto2 engine partnership to supporting the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride; Triumph’s success has always stemmed from the passion and commitment we share with our riders.”

“With the forthcoming launch of our brand-new Tiger 1200, new competition MX and Enduro motorcycles, plus our strategic partnership with Bajaj to create smaller-capacity bikes, I am delighted to say that the future for Triumph and its fans across the world will be just as exciting and rich as the last 30 years has been,” Bloor continues.


Care to see if you’ll be in the area to take a gander at the machine? The report from MCN goes on to state that the Tiger will be shown at Motorcycle Live ‘before taking up permanent residence at the Factory Visitor Experience.’
