KTM’s Continues Their Support of the U.S. Motorcycle Coaching Association

The U.S. Motorcycle Coaching Association (USCMA) has a continued backer for their top-notch work – and now with KTM’s partnership confirmed through 2022, riders across the community will be able to benefit from the USCMA’s tutelage. 


The goal of the USCMA is simple: To improve the Powersports community through high-quality coaching certification. Good riders are safe riders, and KTM, Husqvarna Motorcycles North America, Inc. and GasGas Motorcycles North America are here for all of it. 


A view of the U.S. Motorcycle Coaching Association and relevant activities


“Following a record-breaking year in 2021, USMCA has certified over 300 motorcycle coaches in the dirt bike and sport bike space in 43 states across the United States and Puerto Rico, providing an incredible platform for a safer and more educated community of motorcyclists,” states the report from CycleNews


“As a founding partner of USMCA, Husqvarna Motorcycles has been a key factor in many of the organization’s milestones and they will continue providing valuable resources to assist in the ongoing development of the brand.”



“We are thrilled to extend our partnership with USMCA,” enthuses John Hinz, the CEO of KTM North America, Inc.


“With each one of our motorcycle brands we understand the importance of providing the next generation of riders a well-structured platform that emphasizes coaching uniformity. Not only is the USMCA creating space for new riders, but establishing the foundation and fundamentals needed for riders to enjoy a lifetime of motorcycle riding and racing.”

Wyoming: BMW Collabs with Backcountry Discovery Routes For Epic 1,000-Mile Tour


For those of you that haven’t heard of Backcountry Discovery Routes, they’re a non-profit organization that specializes in dual-sport and off-road motorcycle travel. Think motorcycle tours, but a few more bumps and a hell of a lot more dirt – and we’ve just received word that BMW Motorrad will be partnering up with BDR to create their newest tour yet – a 1,000-mile trek the brand is calling ‘The Wyoming Backcountry Discovery Route (WYBDR).’ 


BDR members holding up a sign for advertisenal purposes


This new route is, according to AutoMobilSport, “the most remote DBR to date and takes riders on an exciting riding experience traversing five different mountain ranges, viewing spots from two 11,000 foot summits, high-deserts, short grass prairies, gorges, and alpine climates.”


A view of the landscape that will be a part of the Wyoming Backroad Discovery Roads tour, available with BDR in collaboration with BMW


Riders looking to take advantage of the route will also purportedly have access to a waterproof map that “will be developed in partnership with Butler Motorcycle Maps as a planning resource for riders.”

As if access to this route weren’t enough, the report tells us that there will soon be a documentary released on the very first expedition that takes on the WYBDR, “filmed by Noren Films and produced and distributed by the BDR organization will be unveiled in February.”


“The film tour will take place Feb. – May at motorcycle dealers and clubs across the country. Viewers will ride along with the film team, experiencing some of the most seldom seen and beautiful regions of Wyoming.”



We’re told that Wendy Naessens, an instructor at the BMW Performance Center Riding School, will be featured in this film, “offering both expert on- and off-road motorcycle riding instruction and training.”



“The new Wyoming Backcountry Discovery Route offers not only BMW adventure motorcycle riders but all dual-sport enthusiasts a once-in-a-lifetime experience in the majestic regions of Wyoming,” enthuses Luciana Francisco, Head of Brand and Marketing, BMW Motorrad USA.

AIMExpo: DISRUPTIVE THINKING

An Educational Platform Hell-Bent on Revolutionizing the PowerSports Industry


Of all of the action to be had at AIMExpo, I was most excited about their DISRUPTIVE THINKING platform. The places that you can go and rekindle your passion for business numbers and company success in the Powersports industry are precious few – but that’s exactly how AIMExpo means to contribute to our present community, as well as the waves of newer riders entering the Powersport sphere that will eventually alter our industry as we know it. 


Among the keynote speakers that have been tearing up the mic are Motocross legend and all-around racing talent Ricky Carmichael – a man known for his balls-to-the-wall attitude when it comes to performance mentality.

Despite his almost inhuman successes in the Powersports industry (buckets of off-road racing records, factory rider for Kawasaki, Honda, and Suzuki, five-time AMA Supercross champion and 10-time AMA Motocross champion), Carmichael has no bones about setting priorities properly to succeed. Those priorities include “shared stories about growing up as a young racer, working hard to honor his supportive parents, and what it takes to have the mind of a champion.”


“It was always: Give it 100 percent,” Carmichael said. 


“And being honest with yourself. And never giving up.”

We’re told by an AIMExpo press release that the GOAT of motocross has recently joined the Triumph family as a brand ambassador and also as a bike tester for future models – all of this on top of his passion for speaking and his schedule as a TV commentator for the AMA Supercross series. 


Here’s a list of further people and topics the platform has hosted, along with today’s final schedule:

MotoGP: Ducati Lenovo Team Season Launch Postponed As an Asymptomatic Miller Tests Positive

In a recent press release from Ducati Lenovo Team, the group’s talented racer, Jack Miller, will be unable to make it to the 2022 team photoshoot session, due to testing positive for COVI-19. 


The young man is asymptomatic, so we’ve nothing to fear on that spectrum – but will be unable to travel until #43 tests negative. 


As a result, Ducati’s press release tells us that “the 2022 Ducati Lenovo Team Season Launch, initially scheduled for 28th January, will be postponed to 7th February, 2022.”

“Unfortunately, I’ve been tested positive for Covid-19, which means I am unable to travel to Europe,” comments Miller. 


“I am still home in Australia and doing fine. Since I don’t have any symptoms, at least I can continue with my training.”


“I miss you all and will see you in Sepang for the test.”


Stay tuned for January 31st, when the motorcycles will be unveiled for the season launch of the company, complete in their 2022 livery. 


Be sure to also check out the first MotoGP team to reveal their bikes for the 2022 season, and as always – stay safe on the twisties.

General Bike News / Industry Insider: Global 2021 Motorcycle Sales Figures

Industry Insider: Global 2021 Motorcycle Sales Figures

In a report from AutoFinanceNews, we’re told that some odd 50–70% of powersport purchases were made by newbies to the Powersports Industry. That’s a massive influx of demand, and one that comes with a different set of demographics compared to the traditional buyer pre-COVID. 


“Many consumers were looking for other opportunities during the lockdown to be able to just live life. Powersports, RV, and recreation in general provided that outlet for folks,” Altieri says.


“We have a lot of brand-new entrants who are getting into Powersports and recreation. That really speaks well for our industry.”


“I think lenders are already starting to anticipate that, come this time next year, they could be entering a pretty tough marketplace,” Altieri continues. 


The end result?


New customers are excited about new products, meeting product shortages, and turning to the used market for consumer-to-consumer transactions – or grabbing what’s available.

It’s a tricky market to measure, but David Gemperle, partner at Nisen & Elliott is right – the numbers themselves are the really exciting thing. With RideApart telling us that the surge of 2021 beat even the growth of 2020, we’ve really got the pandemic to thank for so many successes in the two-wheeled industry – perhaps even for the revival of brands such as BSA, Norton and Royal Enfield.


“Nobody would have thought that a global pandemic would have been the resurgence of our industry, but it has,” Gemperle reminds us. 


“I think the big thing is we can’t waste this opportunity. It’s really important to capitalize on all these new folks that have entered the industry.”


Here is what RideApart says we have so far for the sales of new machines in 2021 – and we’re not counting the East, for the time being, bar Australia:

Australia


2021 saw 123,530 motorbikes of all kinds – a 13.4% increase over 2020, with the report telling us that almost 43% of those sales were off-road bikes (typical for the large landmass).


France


2021 saw 194,552 new bikes purchased, representing a 9.2% increase over 2020.


We’re also told that “France, in particular, noted supply chain bottlenecks that affected motorbike sales, and speculation remains high among local observers that even more registrations would have occurred, had the number of available bikes on the ground been greater.”

Germany


2021 actually showed a slight decrease in numbers compared to 2020 for Germany, though it’s simply because 2020’s sale figures were so mind-boggling.  The report states that 2021 saw 197,387 new motorbike registrations – a 9.72 percent decrease from 2020, which in turn saw a 32% increase in bike sales compared to 2019.


Big step forward, little step back.


Italy


Scooters were the predominant in the sales for Italy, with 2021 showing 290,255 new motorbikes registered – 119,079 of which were motorcycle registrations and 151,153 of which were scooters.

Spain


For the country that nurtures its budding race talent most, we have 193,324 units sold for 2021 – a 5% increase compared to 2020, with 125cc models being the main contributor (we’re told that “in Spain’s top 10 models sold in 2021, eight of these were 125cc scooter models.”


Switzerland 


2021 saw a rise in bike sales by 13% for Switzerland, with 56,375 new registrations logged (we’re including in here the fact that “new legislation allowing riders aged 16 and over to operate 125cc motorbikes seems to have positively impacted sales”)


This explains the 19.4% rise in 125cc unit sales for 2021, beating the 8,177 registrations for larger displacement machines. 


UK


2021 saw a rise of 9.3% in bike sales – 114,371 units for the year, with “impressive gains…noted in electric registrations…[and] electric two-wheelers now representing 5 percent of the total U.K. motorcycle market according to the Motorcycle Industry Association.”

America


Of course, our own sales figures have yet to surface (fashionably late as per usual), but let’s join in the fun anyways. 


“In 2020, a total of 780,000 new motorbike sales were noted in the U.S…incidentally, that 780,000 number is the highest number of new bike sales recorded in the U.S. since 2008,” notes the report. 


“Back then, a total of 879,910 bikes were sold. Peak new bike sales in the past 20 years came in 2006 when 1,190,000 bikes made their way into American homes according to Statista.” 


“Considering that just 467,780 new bike sales were noted in 2019, it will be fascinating to see if the trend continues in 2021.”

General Bike News / Sam Sunderland Wins the 2022 Dakar Rally

Sam Sunderland Wins the 2022 Dakar Rally

The twelfth and final stage of the 2022 Dakar Rally Bike category was one of the most exciting parts of the grueling race. The top 3 riders — Honda’s Pablo Quintanilla, KTM’s Toby Price, and Honda’s Nacho Cornejo — were separated by just 29 seconds as they crossed the finish line. However, GASGAS Racing’s Sam Sunderland took home the overall win in the motorcycle category.

Now a two-time Dakar Rally winner, the Brit finished 8th in the last stage, 03m25s behind Pablo Quintanilla. However, this was enough to clear him by almost four minutes in the overall time from Quintanilla, who took home silver. This was also GasGas’ first Dakar Rally victory. The motorcycle Sunderland was racing is essentially a rebadged KTM 450 Rally, a bike he’s pretty familiar with and the one he won the 2017 Dakar Rally on.

Here’s what Sunderland had to say following his victory “Wow. What a feeling! That 10-minute period waiting at the end of the final stage to see if I’d won felt like a lifetime,”


“But this feeling, knowing I’ve won a second Dakar, will stay in my memory forever. This win feels better than the first as this victory was anything but easy. The times were so close this year and there was no time to let off the gas, it was a really close race, right to the end.”


A Dakar motorcycle rider on some dunes in the 2022 Dakar Rally


“All of the hard work, the sacrifices, and everything that the GASGAS team has done for me makes it all worthwhile. It’s been five years since my first Dakar win, and it’s been a long time to wait!”


“I’m super happy to get another win and claim the first one for GASGAS. Everyone on the team has worked so hard to achieve this and it’s a true team effort – together we got the job done. Amazing.”


The Dakar is a highly challenging race and arguably the hardest one. Huge congratulations are in order for everyone who participated and completed it, as well as the organizers.

General Bike News / Risemousse Reveals Tire Mousse for On-Road Motorcycles

Risemousse Reveals Tire Mousse for On-Road Motorcycles

We see several new motorcycles and technological advancements at EICMA every year. This year’s lineup included a revolutionary bike from MV Agusta, new accessories from GIVI, and multiple new projects from Brembo. In the midst of all this, a rather exciting piece of tech seems to have flown by under the radar. 


An Italian firm called Risemousse has developed a road-tire mousse system called B-Sure. In application, it’s pretty similar to run-flat tires that are quite common in the automotive space. 


Cross section of the B-Sure tech on a tire


A puncture on a tubeless motorcycle tire is significantly more straightforward to fix than one on a tubed tire. With a tubeless tire, you only need to plug the hole — as long as it’s a small one — inflate the tire, and you’ll be good to go. However, most motorcycles, predominantly those that run spoked wheels, still rely on a tube within the tire to keep the air in. If the tube is punctured, you’ll have to get the wheel off its axis to fix the hole. This can be pretty problematic.


Off-road riders sometimes kit their motorcycle tires with foam, or mousse, in place of the air-filled tube to prevent punctures. However, the downside to these is that they have to be replaced often as they wear out from constantly brushing against the inner walls of the tire. 


Cross section of the B-Sure tech on a tire


The new B-Sure tech aims to solve that problem. The company’s foam tube has a small air gap between it and the tire, reducing friction and thus allowing it to last much longer. The two-part system includes the donut-shaped insert and a tire pressure monitoring sensor linked to a small screen next to the bike’s info cluster. 


In the event of a puncture, the tire-pressure monitor is triggered. Like with run-flat tires in cars, the mousse allows the bike to be still ridden, albeit at lower speeds, which should let you ride to safety.


Risemousse claims three years life span for the mousse, which is about the lifespan of a tire. Risemousse has mentioned that the foam for Urban and Adventure tires will launch in Spring 2022. Eventually, the company will also have the tech available for Chopper, Tourer, and Sports motorcycles. However, it has been said that you can’t take the sportsbike tires racing or on a track, leading us to believe that there might be a speed limitation with the product.

MotoGP: Gresini’s Touching Tribute to Their Late Boss Includes MotoGP Entry and Ducati Contract


MotoGP’s just had their first team reveal their bikes for 2022 – and it’s none other than Gresini Racing, with a slick set of Ducati GP21 machines to face the likes of Pramac Racing and Valentino Rossi’s VR46 team – and we’re so happy they’ve stayed in the ring. 


The report from MotorSport tells us that Gresini Racing lost a well-loved and amazing man when their founder and team boss, Fausto Gresini, passed away due to COVID-19 in February of 2020. 


Gresini, founder of Gresini Racing, next to teammates


Back then, the team couldn’t confirm if they would be able to come back from the loss, so it was a veritable Hollywood moment when the late Gresini’s wife, Nadia Padovani, took the helm and signed a two-year contract with Ducati to race Gresini’s team for the 2022 MotoGP season, pulling back on the team’s Moto3 program to prep for such a momentous occasion. 


A view of the reveal of Gresini Racing's bikes, complete with the celebration of their two-year contract with Ducati Corse


The teams proudly displayed their bikes this past Saturday, down to the new decals courtesy of Drudi. 


“We’re finally presenting a project we strongly believed in and one we have been working non-stop for during the last year,” Padovani said at that event.


“We’re very motivated and we ended up being the first MotoGP team to present itself; plus, I believe our bikes are beautiful – and I hope all the others will like them, too.”


A view of the reveal of Gresini Racing's bikes, complete with the celebration of their two-year contract with Ducati Corse


“I would like to think Fausto is looking at us from above and that is proud of his family…there is almost no distinction between natural and work families, we’re one…I must say that I saw both Diggia and Enea in great shape and eager to start: we’re aiming at being among the protagonists and show up at the parc ferme sometimes.”



Ducati’s general manager Gigi Dall’Igna, has also purportedly “confirmed during the team launch that “Gresini will have ‘full support’ from Ducati Corse in 2022.”


Fun fact, their website shows a ‘MotoE‘ category, so it looks like we will expect to see some (or all) of this team eventually swing a leg over the new V21L being tweaked by their bike sponsor for the 2023 season.

Our very best to team Gresini Racing – we are sure Fausto would have been so proud of how far the team has come to make this year count.

Electric Everything: Global Low-Voltage-Charger Industry Anticipated to Reach $1.22 Billion by 2025

Here at wBW, we cater to all kinds of craft; whether it be the latest lovingly tinkered – and turbo’ed – CBR1000F from your father’s shop, Ducati’s most popular face of 2021, or that new electric machine that is taking forever to debut to the community proper, we don’t discriminate. Life is too short, too fraught with worry and care-laden bothers to be spent off of a bike for any longer than a day or two. 


A bike, is a bike, is a bike. Period. 


To that effect, we’ve had word that the electric industry for low-voltage chargers is (surprise, surprise) expanding – and the fun part is that we also have a few more details from Yahoo! Finance on what that looks like for our industry in the breakdown. 


A view of an electric motorcycle used to describe the potential state of the electric industry when pertaining to low-voltage chargers


The report states that we’re likely to see a value of US$1.22 billion in 2025, “rising at a CAGR of 3.09%, for the time period of 2021-2025.”


The drive in growth is due partially to “a rising number of ride-hailing fleet vehicles”(or EVs), as well as accelerated urbanization, a decline in price of lithium-ion batteries and a (residual) rising demand for EV supply equipment.


Weaknesses in the infrastructure that this particular crystal ball predicts?


“The market growth would be challenged by a lack of standardization in charging infrastructure and the challenge of charging station financing and ownership,” admits the report. 


“A few notable trends may include rising CO2 emission from the transportation sector, growing trend of recreational vehicles (RV) and reducing cost of electric vehicle (EV) batteries.”


A view of an electric motorcycle used to describe the potential state of the electric industry when pertaining to low-voltage chargers


While KTM’s CEO, Stephan Pierer, might believe that first notable trend after his statement to TopSpeed a few days ago, the truth is that electric travel has something other alternative fuel sources don’t; it is supported by government incentives and regulation laws which in turn drive up the appeal of EVs and support the expansion of production plants to make more EVs. 


It’s a new Circle of Life, explained in watts – with especial demand for low-voltage charging machines that can be conveniently catered to anywhere, anytime – bikes like the anticipated SONDORS MetaCycle, Zero Motorcycles’ fleet and the quirky and highly loveable CAKE lineup.
