  • Ride N’ Seek – experiencing Malaysia through a Harley

    Ride N Seek 01

    Going on a road trip across Malaysia to explore new routes and try things that one has never seen or heard before sounds like a real adventure, and that’s precisely what Jaime Dempsey has done.

    Dempsey’s journey is documented on History Channel’s Ride N’ Seek, which centres on the American biker’s mainstream and “off the beaten track” experiences riding across Peninsula Malaysia on her Harley-Davidson.

    Her rides across the country have sought out the best and most unusual adventures. In the first season, which comprises six parts, Dempsey gets to meet local celebrities such as Alex Yoong and DJ Sarimah Ibrahim. Apart from trying out the local cultural activities and delicacies, her pursuits include an off-road adventure, carpentry, boat-building and trying out a formula car.

    Ride N’ Seek was an amazing adventure from start to finish. We selected Malaysia as the location for the first series because of its amazing history. It is also geographically blessed with everything from lush rainforests to lovely sandy beaches and mysterious mangroves,” said Chris Humphrey, director of production at AETN All Asia Networks.

    Ride N’ Seek takes viewers through a tour of Peninsula Malaysia through Dempsey’s eyes as she rides through states such as Johor, Pahang, Kelantan, Penang, Perak, Selangor and Malacca. Dempsey, who is always keen to visit new places and try out new things, said that the entire road trip, which took eight months to complete, was a breeze for her.

    Ride N Seek premiered on Monday, June 10 on the History Channel and its six episode run, which has been on at 10pm on channel 555 and 575 on Astro every Monday, ends tonight. As readers are already aware of, we’ve been running a History Watch & Win contest, which is also going into its final stretch. Still more prizes to be won, so keep an eye out for the final set of questions soon.

  • Lotus Motorcycles – C-01 goes the two-wheeled route

    lotus motorcycles 01

    Something new from Lotus, and it’s not of the usual vehicular variety. News has come about that the brand is stepping into the world of two-wheelers, doing so through a new concern called Lotus Motorcycles, a joint project of German motor racing team Kodewa, tuning firm Holzer Group and car designer Daniel Simon.

    The company’s very first bike, which is designed by Simon, will be called the Lotus C-01, a hyper bike with integrated racing technology and around 200 hp of power. Carbon, titanium and aerospace quality steel are set to feature strongly in the bike’s construction.

    No images of the high-tech ride as yet, but the company says that the first visuals are set to be released in the coming weeks. Simon says (ha!) that the colour scheme will have black and gold in it, as a homage to the brand’s iconic racing livery. More in the coming weeks.

  • New BMW R 1200 GS now in Malaysia – from RM125k

    BMW 06

    BMW Motorrad has led the travel enduro class for over 30 years with the ‘BMW GS’ concept, and the latest addition to the range – the new BMW R 1200 GS – is now on sale here in two variants. Prices start at RM125,000 for the base Touring (on the road without insurance), while the Dynamic model with BMW LED headlight costs RM3,800 more.

    While it may look familiar, this is an all-new model with plenty of changes underneath. The signature GS ‘beak’ is now much larger, while the headlamp assembly, windshield and side fairings are all thoroughly updated. Also, it doesn’t take a Motorrad anorak to notice that the exhaust now sits on the right side of the bike.

    This is the first motorcycle in the world to offer full-LED headlight. Standard with the Dynamic Package, two LED units are housed within the typical GS dual headlight assembly, each for low and high beam. LED daytime running light is fitted to both variants, a first for a BMW GS.

    More significant is the wholly redesigned engine and suspension system. The BMW R 1200 GS now has a compact air/water cooling system and the 1.2 litre engine makes 125 hp at 7,700 rpm and 125 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm, up from its predecessor’s 110 hp and 120 Nm. New ride-by-wire E-gas system improves controllability and response, and electronic cruise control is now standard.

    BMW 05

    Other mechanical changes include a completely new gearbox that is now integrated in the engine housing to improve weight balance and save space and weight. A new multiple wet clutch system with an anti hopping mechanism also replaces the old single-disc dry clutch unit.

    Semi-active Dynamic ESA suspension makes an appearance in the R 1200 GS for the first time. It provides better sense of security and comfort on uneven and off road terrains by automatically adjusting the damping to suit riding conditions and manoeuvres, while also responding to the standard ABS feature should the need arise.

    There are now five different riding modes offered – Rain, Road, Dynamic, Enduro and Enduro Pro – each with its own E-gas, ABS and Automatic Stability Control (ASC) settings. Both front and rear tyres are now wider than before for improved traction, cornering and riding dynamics.

    Four colours (Alpine White, Racing Red, Blue Fire and Thunder Grey Metallic) are available for the new BMW R 1200 GS at all authorised BMW Motorrad dealerships nationwide.
