HONDA Scooter Pictures. 2008 Silver Wing.

2008 HONDA Silver Wing Scooter Pictures
1600 x 1200 pixels




Forget everything you know about scooters. Forget how nerdy they can be. Forget that they're toys. Forget that they're not for "real" motorcyclists. Now come with me, and let's check out the 2008 Honda Silver Wing, one of the coolest scooters on the planet, a tool for the biker with an open mind. The 2008 Honda Silver Wing carries a base price of $8,099 ($8,599 as tested with ABS), along with a one year/unlimited miles transferable warranty. Let's ride.

First Glance

If you're as old as I am (and some of you must be), you probably remember the last time Honda delivered a Silver Wing to our shores. From 1981 -- 1984, the Honda GL500/GL650 wore the silver wings as a lesser cousin to the highly successful Gold Wing tourer. The GL500 was somewhat of an underpowered flop, and the GL650 never really gained traction in the marketplace. But the name "Silver Wing" begged reuse, and it has found a worthy home on the FSC600 (the official alphanumeric name for the scooter).

I'd define a scooter as a two-wheeled motorized vehicle with a clutchless transmission, hand controls only (no foot controls) and a step-through chassis. Most scooters feature integrated, long footboards. You can name exceptions -- scooters without a step-through, motorcycles with automatic transmission and no foot controls -- but this is a review, not a legal brief. Give me a break. The Silver Wing adheres to my definition of a scooter, and blows up the concept in the process.

The Silver Wing doesn't look like a scooter from the front or from the rear. With a rider aboard and underway, it doesn't even look like a scooter in profile -- the rider's legs hide the step-through, presenting one continuous mass. Full plastic bodywork disguises Silver Wing's bones -- scarcely a hint of the full steel frame is visible to the naked eye. The components that do peek out are intriguing bits of suspension hardware -- more on that later.

With its bulbous front and rear protuberances, Silver Wing looks like what would happen if a Hayabusa mated with a praying mantis.

Seat of the Pants

Some textures and materials onboard are a little on the plastic side -- the spots where my feet dragged across the step-through were showing wear on my test scooter, and will need attention to keep looking good in the future. In contrast, the chrome and metal bits, like the big muffler, sparkled with rich quality.

Silver Wing's 29.7" seat height gave me the option of swinging a leg over (early in the day) or using the step-through to mount in a more sophisticated fashion (later in the day). The tall-ish height shouldn't be an impediment to shorter riders -- you'll be able to slide off of the seat into a standing position in the step-through to get both feet securely on the ground at a stop when necessary. The broad flat seat is well-cushioned, and comfortable enough for all-day riding. The passenger pillion is slightly elevated above the rider's perch, and is also broad and comfy. Even with no backrest, my wife felt secure and confident on our rides together.

Without adding any accessory trunks or panniers, the Silver Wing can swallow an amazing amount of cargo. I am afflicted with a condition known as "Melon Head," requiring me to wear a size XXL helmet. I always wear a full-face model. Even my enormous lid fit in the Silver Wing's underseat storage area -- along with a second, size L full-face helmet, two fabric riding jackets, two pairs of riding gloves and a pack of gum. The official specs say that there's 55 liters of storage -- I can't visualize "liters," but I can tell you that Silver Wing could easily handle 80% of the toting needs for my daily errands.

On the Road

I took the Silver Wing out for rides at every opportunity during my two-week test period. I even took it on the Los Angeles freeway system -- and much to my astonishment, it turned out to be one of the best freeway bikes I've ever ridden. It starts with power -- hidden under all that plastic is a 582 cc parallel twin-cylinder engine with fuel injection, double-overhead cams and four valves per cylinder. Honda doesn't release power figures, but I believe that the horsepower is close to 50 and torque close to 40 lb-ft, based on internet buzz and empirical evidence. What that means is that the 551 lb Silver Wing easily out-accelerates most cars (and many motorcycles), and has the ability to cruise at freeway speeds, which can reach 80 -- 85 mph in our area.

If the Silver Wing were an old-fashioned scooter with tiny wheels, that would be a terrifying thought. But with a 14" front/13" rear tire and great aerodynamics, Silver Wing is dead stable at speed. In California, we can legally share lanes with other vehicles, which means that in slow or stopped traffic, it is legal to ride between the lanes. Silver Wing's slim profile, upright riding position and maneuverability at low speed make it an ideal lane-splitter.

When the road turns rough, the Silver Wing's suspension does a great job of smoothing things out. Though the 41 mm hydraulic fork up front is not adjustable, the rear dual hydraulic shocks have a five-position preload adjustability. I was set up in the middle position, and never touched the preload during my rides, even when I carried a passenger.

Journey's End

I still prefer the manual clutch, foot shifter and foot rear brake of a conventional motorcycle, but I have to admit that Silver Wing's setup works fine. Just twist the right hand throttle and go, no clutch needed. Let off the gas, and engine braking helps slow you down. If you need to stop faster, the right hand brake lever controls the front brake's outer two pistons, and the left hand brake lever controls the rear brake and the front brake's center piston. At a stop, there's no tension in the system, and trying to rev the engine at a stoplight will make you jump into the intersection. Once you adjust, it's like the difference between driving a car with a manual transmission and driving one with an automatic. You may prefer one over the other, but each has its virtues and drawbacks. The automatic felt just right for the Silver Wing.

I never thought that I'd be a candidate for scooter ownership, but after spending two weeks with a Silver Wing, I am seriously considering buying one. There's one thing that will hold me back from buying a new Silver Wing -- and that's price. $8,599 will buy a wide variety of motorcycles, new and used. There's even some choice in the land of big scooters, with the Suzuki Burgman 650 and the Aprilia Scarabeo 500 leading the pack.

I may hunt for a used Silver Wing, since it has been essentially unchanged since its introduction in 2001. I won't give up my motorcycle -- but I just might have to add a big scooter to the fleet. And it might be a Silver Wing. (From Jason Fogelson)

Many of us know someone who has been injured or killed in an auto, truck, motorcycle or pedestrian accident. An average of 110 people die each day in car crashes on U.S. roadways. Many auto accidents are caused by distracted drivers (talking on the phone or texting), while other accidents may be caused by drunk drivers, road construction or defective vehicles. For many drivers and passengers it is often not a matter of if, but when.

According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, on average, there are more than 6 million car accidents on the U.S. roads annually. More than 3 million people get injured due to car accidents, with more than 2 million of these injuries being permanent. There are in excess of 40,000 deaths due to car accidents every year.

Such injuries and death often leave the victims and their families devastated and understandably confused about what to do next. Insurance companies often look out for their own best interest, not the policy holder (denied claims, bad faith).

2008 VESPA S 50 4V 
VESPA Scooter pictures
1600 x 1200 pixels



After more than 60 years of Vespa tradition and history, and a successful one at that, Piaggio has created a new Vespa for 2009. The Vespa S 50 4v is a vespa with all the lightweight feel of a 50cc Vespa, but with the technology of four valves, and the intelligence of a 50 2T. It will also have reduced consumption and better fuel efficiency than a four stroke.

Below we give you the details and specs of the new Vespa S 50 4V from Piaggio, with a sexy Vespa gallery to boot. We don’t know about you, but we’re excited to have a new 2009 model Vespa on the market and can’t wait to see this little one zipping around Italy.

The new four valve, four stroke Vespa 50 rediscovers a legendary engine size that has played a major role in the history of Vespa. Thanks to a 4 valve cylinder head, this brand new little powerplant has nothing to fear from its two-stroke competitors. (At 4.35 bhp it is the most powerful 50 cc four stroke on the market.) Yet its consumption and emission figures remain those of a typical four stroke.

The new engine is a little jewel of technology: use of a 4 valve head has led to an increase in power of over 23% compared to the previous 2 valve configuration (4.35 bhp against 3.53 bhp). Power output is therefore the same as that of a high performance two-stroke.
The valve clearance adjustment mechanism has been made lighter to achieve less inertia and a more efficient rocker/valve action. The result is higher engine speeds and more power. Improved through-flow, also the result of the four valve head, means optimised combustion, reduced fuel consumption and lower than ever emissions.

The new engine delivers fuel consumption figures (ECE 47 cycle) identical to those of the extremely parsimonious 2 valve four stroke, and significantly better than those of the two stroke version (36% less).

The new engine has been designed, developed and industrialised at Piaggio’s headquarters in Pontedera, one of the world’s most important centres for engine R&D. Piaggio is determined to offer today’s ever more sophisticated scooter riders performance, reliability and safety, and respect for the environment too.

The Vespa S is the first model to be equipped with the new 4 valve engine.
The brilliant new four valve 50 cc engine makes the most of the light weight of the Vespa S to offer young riders the perfect solution to their needs for personal mobility and freedom, exactly as Vespa has done for generations of teenagers, boys and girls alike. With the Vespa S 4 Valves, however, fuel consumption and ecology are better than ever.

The Vespa S relives the fascination of the original sporty “Vespino”.
The unique styling of the Vespa S is a clever blend of past echoes and reflections, and interprets the young and sporty soul of Vespa in the present day. The rigorous, minimalist design of the Vespa S embodies a heritage that dates back to the legendary models of the 1970s, like the 50 Special and Vespa Primavera.

The Vespa S is also available in 50 2T, 125 and 150 cc versions, all of which share the same sporting, dynamic and fresh character. Its lines are clean and essential. With its minimalist but decisive styling, simple yet elegant design, the Vespa S features the same dynamism and freshness that made the Vespa the favourite scooter of young people in the roaring seventies.

As has always been the case in the long history of Vespa scooters, the steel body acts as the frame.

The front suspension features a double acting hydraulic shock absorber with an aeronautical style lateral arm. At the rear the Vespa S is equipped with a suspension system based on a double acting hydraulic monoshock. An 11” front wheel guarantees excellent stability and gives the rider a feeling of confidence and safety. The tyres are both tubeless, 110/70 at the front and 120/70 on the 10” rear wheel. The braking system is a classic disc and drum combination.

Motorcycle Accident
Motorcycle accidents often result in debilitating injury or death due to the lack of protection for the rider as compared to other vehicles. When a motorcycle is involved in an accident with a car or truck, the motorcyclist is at a grave disadvantage. Car and truck drivers often fail to see a motorcycle due to their own inattentiveness and often dangerous driving. While a helmet may be the difference between life or death, the truth is as a motorcyclist, your chances of escaping a motorcycle accident without serious injury is slim. Often such accidents leave a motorcycle rider with permanent injuries and disability, costing the victim and his or her family thousands of dollars in medical bills. Moreover, in Florida, there is an inherent prejudice and/or bias against motorcycle riders which if not properly addressed can and will lead to a harsh and unjust result.

This is why, if you or someone you love was injured in motorcycle accident, please contact us immediately for a free consultation with one of our Florida motorcycle accident attorneys. (http://www.carnerbarzakay.com/contact-form.php )

Scooter accident lawyers info. 2009 APRILIA Scrabeo 200 pictures

2009 APRILIA Scrabeo 200
APRILIA Scooter picture
1600 x 1200 pixels

STYLE
The inspiration remains the same. Giuseppe Ricciuti, the father of Scarabeo, is the man behind this latest model too. The new 200 conserves all the usual classic and modern style emblems, decisive features and smooth lines in an instantly harmonious continuity. Once again Scarabeo has redefined urban scooter design. Yet in a world of throw-away fashions, Scarabeo’s reassuring lines are a welcome constant. With one-in-a-million looks, Scarabeo lets you live the city in true elegance. The 200 lives up to its reputation of authentic trend setter.

The 200 embodies pure Scarabeo style, free from excess and with nothing out of place. Only Scarabeo could achieve such perfection.

Small enough to nip through the most chaotic traffic, Scarabeo also offers advanced ergonomics and unrivalled functionality to ensure that you always ride in comfort and style.

THE DETAILS THAT COUNT
A flat platform provides greater space for load carrying. A windshield fixed to the steering head deviates air flow over the rider, guaranteeing turbulence-free travel even at high speed. Generous analog-digital instrumentation includes an on-board computer with handlebar controls: the system’s many functions include outside air temperature display with ice warning. Even the centre stand has been carefully designed to afford the best possible leverage, so that lifting your Scarabeo on to it stand is a piece of cake.

The aluminium luggage rack provides the perfect surface for fitting a top box. And the intelligent use of chrome, plus direction indicators integrated in the handlebars, and many other clever details, make Scarabeo totally unique.

ENGINE
As with everything else on the Scarabeo 200, the engine is brand new, and designed by Aprilia specially for Scarabeo.

These advanced, lightweight, rational and clean running engines combine excellent performance with miserly consumption, are almost vibration-free in use and boast ultra-low emissions, in keeping with Scarabeo’s environmentally friendly philosophy.

This single cylinder four stroke engine delivers fun, safety and comfort. It is liquid cooled with four valve, double overhead cam cylinder heads, used for the first time on an Aprilia scooter of this size. By optimizing valve timing, this technical solution, typical of high performance engines, succeeds in combining high power with low emissions. No wonder the Scarabeo 200 boasts the highest performance of any scooter of its class.

The 200 version delivers an impressive 14 kW (19 HP) at 8250 rpm, with generous torque (17 Nm at 7500 rpm), for sporty yet relaxing acceleration and excellent active security under all riding conditions.

In keeping with the original design concept, the engine is fuelled by a modern Keihin carburettor for simple, trouble-free use.

A catalytic converter is fitted to ensure cleaner exhaust emissions and bring Scarabeo 200 within the limits of EURO 3 legislation.

Particularly low fuel consumption plus a generous 8 litre fuel tank, combine to give more than enough autonomy for a week’s urban commuting.

CHASSIS
Scarabeo’s classical yet trend-setting good looks have never prevented use of the latest chassis technology. In fact, conservation of many of the far-sighted stylistic and technical design solutions incorporated into the range since 1993 has provided an excellent base for the development of this latest model.

The new 200 is designed to maintain all the unique features that make Scarabeo an icon of our times, without losing sight of the easy riding and advanced performance and safety that characterise all Aprilia products. These defining values are engineered into the very DNA of the new Scarabeo, making it agile, safe in all situations, and more than able to deliver thrilling motorcycle style handling where road conditions permit.

Merit for these impressive results is due mainly to the exceptional rigidity and robustness of the new high strength steel frame, and to the perfect setup of the suspension, which is tuned to deliver maximum feel and a super-smooth ride.

The front fork is a 35 mm hydraulic unit. At the rear, the engine and transmission assembly acts as swingarm, with the assistance of an aluminium reaction arm. Simple, lightweight, yet effective, this solution incorporates shock absorbers that let you adjust preload to four different settings to cater for all possible loads and riding styles.

The refined wheels are fitted with 16” high-wall tubeless tyres (100/80 at the front, 120/80 at the rear). This combination is not only perfect for negotiating the hazards of city roads but also makes the new Scarabeo amazingly stable and intuitive to ride for expert and novice riders alike.

Scarabeo has never skimped on brakes, and the new 200 is no exception. The front wheel features a 260 mm disc and a floating caliper with three parallel pistons, while the rear wheel is equipped with a 220 mm disc and two piston caliper. The front and rear wheels are linked by a new integral braking system that distributes braking force between the two wheels and guarantees ultra-short stopping distances in complete safety.

Motorcycle Accident
Motorcycle accidents often result in debilitating injury or death due to the lack of protection for the rider as compared to other vehicles. When a motorcycle is involved in an accident with a car or truck, the motorcyclist is at a grave disadvantage. Car and truck drivers often fail to see a motorcycle due to their own inattentiveness and often dangerous driving. While a helmet may be the difference between life or death, the truth is as a motorcyclist, your chances of escaping a motorcycle accident without serious injury is slim. Often such accidents leave a motorcycle rider with permanent injuries and disability, costing the victim and his or her family thousands of dollars in medical bills. Moreover, in Florida, there is an inherent prejudice and/or bias against motorcycle riders which if not properly addressed can and will lead to a harsh and unjust result.

This is why, if you or someone you love was injured in motorcycle accident, please contact us immediately for a free consultation with one of our Florida motorcycle accident attorneys. (http://www.carnerbarzakay.com/contact-form.php )

Need a Florida Motorcycle Accident Lawyer and looking for an ethical, experienced and aggressive lawyer to figure out if you may be entitled to money compensation for your serious injury?

In Florida, motorcycle accidents happen mostly because automobile drivers do not share the road. I frequently represent seriously injured motorcycle riders because a car fails to see the motorcycle and then the car pulls out into the intersection. Another common reason is that the car driver changes lanes without looking. The most frequent injuries are fractures of shoulder or wrists from going over the handlebars, or femur (long bone of the leg) fractures from laying the bike down or a side impact. Unfortunately, even at slower speeds and with a helmet, I have represented the family of fathers and sons who have died in motorcycle crashes.

As a Florida Motorcycle accident lawyer, I understand that you may want to express you individuality and freedom on the road by making the decision as an adult not to wear a helmet. The insurance company in a brain injury case will argue that you are the cause of your own injury being worse because if you were wearing a helmet the injury would not have been so bad.

I retain experts in biomechanics, who are engineers and if the evidence is available and in your favor, they can calculate the force of the impact and tell the insurance company that they are wrong. That wearing a helmet would not have made a difference. A helmet sometimes can actually make the injury worse. I am not advocating that you should not wear a helmet , it's just that wearing one does not always make a difference. It depends on the accident circumstances. Each Florida Motorcycle Accident claim will get my personal attention to detail and my 30 years of experience.

If you would like to consult for free with a Florida civil trial lawyer who is board certified as an expert in civil trial then please call 888-446-1999

There will be no charge for lawyer fees of representation or costs of representation if there is not money compensation recovery.
