  • 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.
  • SKODA news.

    The most frugal Superb models yet have been launched by Skoda with these GreenLine badged models emitting just 95g/km of CO2 in hatchback guise, and 1g/km higher with the estate bodystyle. Official figures suggest that 76.4mpg is possible on the combined fuel economy cycle, with the power and torque figures of the standard car preserved of 118bhp and 184lb ft of torque. Offered in a choice of four trim levels - S, SE, SE Business and SE L Executive - prices start at Ј20,900 for the Hatchback S 1.6 TDI GreenLine, and rise to Ј26,250 for the Estate SE L Executive 1.6 TDI GreenLine. Extra efficiency measures include super rolling resistant tyres, 17-inch ‘Helios’ alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, GreenLine badging, as well as rear privacy glass and cornering front fog lights. The price premium for this greater frugality works out at Ј860, with the first examples turning up at showrooms soon.
  • RENAULT.

    A new special edition version of the Twingo has been unveiled by Renault called the Iconic. It’s available with both the 1.0 SCe 70 petrol engine and 0.9 TCe 90 powerplant, with both versions falling below the magic 100g/km CO2 barrier. Priced at Ј11,845 for the former and Ј12,545 for the latter, the Twingo Iconic is based on the Dynamique model, and features cruise control, electric front windows, front fog lights, electric and heated mirrors, DAB digital radio, rear privacy glass, gloss black door mirrors and a navigation system that operates via your smartphone. Moving to the cabin, there’s black part leather upholstery with white and violet piping, climate control, automatic headlights and wipers, as well as door sill plates and floor mats. Two unique colours are offered - Ultraviolet and Lunar Grey - as well as black and white. Along the side of the Twingo Iconic there’s Ultraviolet side decals and a similarly coloured emblem on the centre caps of the 16-inch alloy wheels. Black alloy wheels are offered as a no-cost optional extra. The new Twingo Iconic is available to order now from Renault dealers.
