Honda NS500 - 500cc Grand Prix racing motorcycle in the early 1980s

The Honda NS500 is a 500cc Grand Prix racing motorcycle of the early 1980s, powered by a two-stroke V3 engine. Created as a replacement for the innovative but unsuccessful four-stroke NR500, the bike went against Honda's preference for four-stroke machines but proved very effective and quickly won the 1983 500cc World Championship with Freddie Spencer onboard.[1] After a relatively short lifespan the bike was replaced by the even more successful two-stroke V4 engine powered NSR500.

Reviews: KTM 350 EXC-F Factory

The power of a 450, the agility of a 250 - KTM 350 EXC-F Factory

The brand new KTM 350 EXC-F Factory puts down a new milestone in the Enduro World Championship in 2011. The newly developed factory bike claims no less than to be the most sophisticated and best four stroke racing Enduro ever.

KTM intends to transfer the sensational success of the 350 SX-F in the Motocross World Championship to the Enduro segment. The basic tenet of combining the low weight of a 250 with the power of a 450 will give the 350 EXC-F the edge. Combining massive performance with awesome agility makes for efficient, energy-saving rideability, which is at least as important in Enduro competitions as it is in Motocross races.

Due to its excellent design with an electronic fuel injection, KTM 350 EXC-F Factory has nearly the same output as a 450 cc power pack. At the same time though, it is as compact as a four stroke 250 and has the low weight and dynamic response of the smaller capacity. To make it even easier for the rider to fully exploit the advantages of this innovative engine, the brand new factory bike also joins the fray in the 2011 Enduro WC with newly designed bodywork.

The retailing price is also very reasonable - US$8,500 including shipping fee too!
