Interesting News
  • Modern throwback.

    This is the XSR900. And yes, you’re right - it’s the charismatic three-cylinder MT-09 wearing it’s dad’s flares and floppy-collared shirt. Chassis and engine are MT-09, with the 2016 updates of a slipper-assist light-action clutch and three-level traction control. For the XSR the MT’s contemporary styling is swapped for round lights, aluminium bodywork and round instruments. ‘To reflect Yamaha’s sporty DNA, its history and its iconic motorcycles of the past,’ they say. Hmm. Don’t know about all that, but the 900 pulls it off. You could predict the XSR. After retrofying the MT-07 into the XSR700 (see last issue) this larger ‘Faster Sons’ variant was a given, especially after Yamaha’s video of the ‘Faster Wasp’ MT-09 flattracker by US custom bloke Roland Sands. Let’s hope the trim on the front of his tank makes the accessory list, to give the same flat-tank profile. In other MT-related news, there’s now an MT-03. Basically a naked YZF-R3 sportsbike for A2 licence holders, with funky digi dash, LED lights and crisp lines, it’s not quite a modern LC... but looks good.
  • MAZDA news.

    Already installed under the bonnets of the Mazda2 and CX-3, the Japanese firm has now begun selling versions of the Mazda3 with the 103bhp 1.5-litre diesel engine. For the first time, Mazda’s medium-sized car is capable of emitting less than 100g/km of CO2, with the new powerplant achieving 74.3mpg and emissions of just 99g/km. It’s offered with both five-door hatchback and four-door Fastback bodystyles, and the choice of manual or automatic transmission - the latter exclusive to hatchback editions. The new engine is capable of achieving a maximum speed of 116mph and accelerates to 62mph in 11.0 seconds. Maximum torque of 199lb ft is produced between 1,600 and 2,500rpm. Available in each of the five trim levels - SE, SE Nav, SE-L, SE-L Nav and Sport Nav - prices start at Ј18,895 for the SE 1.5-litre diesel hatchback and Fastback, while the flagship of the line-up, the Sport Nav 1.5 diesel automatic hatchback is priced at Ј23,145. On sale since 1st December, the first examples are arriving in UK showrooms about now.
  • DS AUTOMOBILES news.

    Following the launch of the uprated DS 5 earlier this year, a new, smaller capacity automatic model has been added to the line-up, and featuring the 118bhp 1.6-litre BlueHDi engine. Paired exclusively to Elegance trim, the newcomer costs Ј27,180 and represents a price premium of Ј1,200 compared to the manual gearbox car. Fitted with a six-speed torque-converter equipped automatic transmission, it emits 108g/km of CO2 and is capable of 68.9mpg at optimum conditions on the combined fuel economy cycle. The new two-pedal version of the DS 5 is ready for customers to order now.
