Graves releases new exhaust system for Yamaha's

 

Graves Motorsports announces the public release of their new patented A.D.S.D.™ technology, available on the Graves line of Yamaha YZ and WR-series performance exhaust systems.

Graves began development on the ADSD™ system due to increasingly strict sound regulations for competition world-wide. The goal was to exceed the exceptional level of quality and performance of previous generations of Graves Motorsports exhaust systems while complying with all regulatory bodies in regards to decibel levels.

The average ADSD™ sound reduction over a conventional-style exhaust is 2.5db, while maintaining horsepower increases of 12-20%. The secret is in the two-chambered header pipe, specifically tuned to divert returning exhaust pulses, avoiding power-robbing turbulence near the exhaust port and reducing sonic amplification.

This system has been extensively tested by the Graves Factory Supermoto Team and was used by Brandon Currie to sweep the 2008 AMA Supermoto Lites Championship and on Mark Burkhart’s 2008 Moto X Games race winning machine.

Available for:

2007 - 2009 Yamaha YZ450F 98 DB @ 4000 RPM
2008 - 2009 Yamaha YZ250F 98 DB @ 5000 RPM
2008 - 2009 Yamaha WR250R 95 DB @ 5000 RPM
2008 - 2009 Yamaha WR250X 95 DB @ 5000 RPM

MSRP around $800

Gozzini races in the final round of Australian Championship

 

 

World #2 Champion in Supermoto, Davide Gozzini will debut at the final round of the KTM Australian Supermoto Championship at the Northam Motorcycle Festival this weekend.

All the way from Italy and holding the #1 title in his homeland, Gozzini will feature as a special guest in the championship and will take on Australia’s best supermotard riders such as championship leader Angus Reekie in some of the best racing ever seen in WA.

The sport has come a long way in Western Australia, being introduced to Australia's motorcycle racing culture only 4 years ago. The KTM Australian Supermoto Championship is taking place all weekend in Northam where 900 tonnes of dirt has been carted in to produce one of the greatest racing events on the streets of WA.

Born and bred in Europe, the sport is becoming more popular by the minute. With over 115 competitors arriving in WA from around Australia and from Italy for this special event, there have been discussions held with Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi about the potential of hosting the World Championship or a World Style Event right here in the heart of the city - with the outcome looking very positive.

Derbi DRD EVO SM Limited edition

 

 

 

From now on Supermoto Central will also be reporting about the Supermoto bikes available for the younger readers(or for the kids of older readers). Like 50cc Supermoto's,Pitbikes and 125cc models.

The first news is about Derbi's new Limited Edition DRD EVO SM. It's pretty much a normal DRD EVO SM with some fancy black Paioli 40mm forks, new rear suspension, red wheel striping, red brake calipers.

Personally I think the bike would look better with a normal Supermoto style front fender but who am I to judge. Prices not available yet.
