Yamaha XSR 900 Abarth

The Abarth – created in association with the car tuning legends – has come about thanks to the firm’s association with Yamaha’s MotoGP team, which in itself was doubtless XSR 900 Abarthspawned from the earlier association with parent firm FIAT.

As the name suggests, this is a modified version of the XSR900, but the changes aren’t insignificant, and should add up to a very different feeling ride. The drop bars are key to much of the aesthetic, and resultant change in riding position, and while they start the café racer transformation, it’s the carbon fibre nose cowl, seat unit and front fender that finish it off. Blending new tech with old-school styling, they’re joined by a suede seat, and a battleship grey paintjob highlighted with red speedblock and Abarth logos.

Nestling beneath the styling changes is a lovely full titanium Akrapovic system, culminating in a stacked end-can that’s rather reminiscent of Ducati’s 959 Panigale. And being an XSR900 it boasts traction control, ABS, and the firm’s Assist & Slipper clutch – all of which turn this into a bike as well suited to the daily grind as it is to the weekend scratch.

Dainese - New generation of head-to-toe protection systems for road use

Following the recent introduction of head-to-toe protection systems for motorcycle racing such as the AGV Pista GP R helmet and theDainese Misano Dainese Mugello R D-air® racing suit, the Dainese Group is proud to present the new generation of protection for road use at EICMA.
 

Dainese returns to EICMA after five years with important news in the world of protection and presents the new collection of D-air® jackets for road use and the new family of certified Pro-Armor protectors.
 

The new Misano D-air®, Cyclone D-air® and Continental D-air® jackets, dedicated respectively to sport, sport-touring and urban segments, integrate the brand-new D-air® airbag system in its stand-alone version, which means no sensor kits need to be fitted to the motorcycle. Finally, the ultimate level of protection is available for all types of road use.
 

The proprietary 3D Dainese airbag is the heart of the system. Thanks to an internal structure made of micro-filaments, the airbag deploys in a controlled width over its full length and wraps around the rider's body, providing at the same time maximum protection and comfort. The patented airbag is unique and differs from all other airbags used in the automotive industry. The pioneering Dainese airbag system has been further improved and now covers neck, collarbones, shoulders, chest and back.
 

The electronic platform and the algorithm, the brain and true intelligence of the system, have been further improved. Thanks to data acquired from 6 sensors (accelerometers and gyroscopes) and from the GPS housed in the back protector, the system monitors a rider's dynamics 1000 times a second and deploys the system in the event of impact, high side and low side with or without tumbling.
 

The system equips a new LED interface positioned on the forearm that keeps the rider informed about the system’s operating status. The new battery provides power for over 24 hours of continuous use (three times more than the previous battery) and the time needed for a full recharge is down to 4 hours.
 

The future of protection is in the air and the data gathered by Dainese demonstrates just that. Over 1200 documented deployments by the team at the Dainese Science and Research Center on tracks and roads all over the world on over 1,000,000 km confirm both the efficiency and reliability of the system. The analysis carried out on the massive amount of data acquired contributes to further refining the triggering algorithms of the technological platform. 16 years of constant research have led to 35 patents relating to the manufacture of airbags, triggering algorithms, the architecture of the electronic platform and the integration of airbags and protective clothing.
 

The new jackets use the latest generation Pro-Armor back protector to house the electronic platform (sensors, GPS and battery) for the D-air® airbag system, achieving unparalleled standards of comfort.
 

The new Pro-Armor family of protectors, composed by protectors for shoulders, elbows, back, chest, lumbar region, side and knees, follows an innovative design inspired by fractal which nature uses to create complex structures. The fractal structure emphasises the characteristics of the carbon-based elastomer which forms the protective component of the system. The carbon elastomer absorbs up to 83% of the force that strikes the safety device. The fractal-inspired design provides an extended perforated surface (43% for the back protector) that works in perfect harmony with variable depth of the protector to simultaneously provide superb freedom of movement, light weight, comfort and unmatched breathability.
 

AGV, the historical Italian brand, has fully re-engineered its helmets interiors, extending the improvements introduced with the Pista GP R to its new range for road use. The Corsa R, Veloce S, K-5 S and Compact ST models feature entirely re-designed interiors, providing improved comfort and significant noise reduction.
 

The Dainese Group confirms its total commitment to head-to-toe protection for all motorcyclists”, said Cristiano Silei, the CEO of the Dainese Group. “Taking the D-air® system from the sport to the touring and urban sectors is another significant milestone in the process of increasing the presence of our technology in the world of motorcycles”.
 

The new AGV helmet models will be available from mid-December, while the Pro-Armor protectors will be available from January.

 

The new D-air® stand-alone jackets will be available from next April at £1,499.95 for the Misano D-air® sports version, £1,699.95 for the sport-touring Cyclone D-air® version and £1,499.95 for the Urban Continental D-air® version.
