  • BMW news.

    Just weeks after the new 7 Series arrived in BMW showrooms, the German firm has revealed prices for the more powerful 740d editions. Paired exclusively to xDrive fourwheel- drive, the 3.0-litre turbocharged engine develops 316bhp and a mighty 502lb ft of torque. But despite this, the most frugal edition is still quoted as being able to achieve 55.4mpg on the combined cycle, and emits 134g/km. Prices start at Ј72,060 for the 740d xDrive and top out at Ј79,675 for the long wheelbase 740Ld xDrive M Sport model. These flagship editions are available to order now.
  • This is Yamaha S10000R.

    YAMAHA ALWAYS SAID there would be larger MTmodels, and that the crossplane-crank inline-four engine fromthe YZF-R1 could be used. Given theMT-07’s twin andMT-09’s triple are ‘crossplane concept’ and called the CP2 andCP3, it would kindamake sense to have an actual crossplanemotor in the range. So here’s the newMT-10. This isn’t just the engine froman R1. Unlike its purposebuilt siblings, and despite promising to be ‘enjoyed on any road, any time and at any speed’, theMT-10 is heavily based on themachine that donates its gravelly, snarling engine. Frame, forks, shock and brakes are nicked fromthe sportsbike (or, to be precise, the slightly lower-spec R1-S that they get in the USA). This is Yamaha’s S1000R. Obviously there are changes. The 998cc engine has different pistons, crank, intake, exhaust and injection for bottom-end balls and midrange might, and revised gearing. Like other MTs there are three ridingmodes, but the MT-10 also has cruise control and threelevel traction. A quickshifter will be optional. The frame has ‘optimised strength/rigidity balance’, with a steel subframe andmodified settings for the suspension, and a stubby 1400mmwheelbase - just 20mm longer than the trim newMT-03. Radial calipers have ABS, and the Bridgestone tyres are specially developed for the bike. You’ll get 17 litres in the tank and there’s a 12v power socket. Colours? Blue, black, or the ‘Night Fluro’ grey with high-vis wheels that’s available across theMT range. Yamaha have trodden this path before. The now-defunct FZ1was based on an R1, but its attitude and revvy delivery made it hard work against rival nakeds of the day. Times change however, and now we’re in the age of the supernaked theMT could be just the job. Yamaha haven’t decided howmuch power or weight to claim, or howmuch it’ll cost. But they do assure us that the new MT-10 will be here in May.
  • Le Derny.

    With its colourful style, its refined design and its aluminium shell characteristic of Deus creations, Le Derny is a unique prototype that pays homage to the style of the 1950s in the spirit of the great classical cyclists after the War. In 2016, to celebrate the partnership between PEUGEOT Scooters and Deus Ex Machina, it will take part in Eroica, the most famous of the vintage cycling races organised on the roads of Tuscany and in the valley of Chianti.
