The V4 Baby Block is versatile for a range of applications needing a small, high performance engine from motorcycles to small cars to industrial applications to…anything else you can imagine. Here’s a little video of a really fun build, the V4-powered RCR Monoposto. Built in around a month by Fran Hall and his team at RCR, the V4 is mated to a T5 transmission with a simple adapter plate. Here’s a link to an article on the Monoposto.

Kawasaki dominated the Aragon round, posting their first double in back-to-back races with Sykes winning and Loris Baz in second in both races. This was the fourth and fifth time Kawasaki recorded a double, the first one since the second race in Donington, 1993, when Scott Russell won and Aaron Slight was second: they both were running for the Kawasaki Muzzy team, fielding the ZXRs 750. The last team to record a double in both races had been Aprilia last year in Phillip Island with Sylvain Guintoli and Eugene Laverty.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has publicly acknowledged that ethanol in gasoline can damage internal combustion engines by increasing exhaust temperatures and indirectly causing component failures, the American Motorcyclist Association reports.
The EPA statements are found in a rule proposal issued by the Federal Trade Commission regarding a new label for pumps that supply fuel blends high in ethanol.

It's not often a tyre rolls up and genuinely raises eyebrows. But Michelin’s Pilot Road 3, launched at the start of 2011, did just that. It immediately earned a reputation for great wet grip, excellent ride quality and masking the deficiencies of tired or poor quality suspension. It has become, deservedly, one of the UK’s best-selling tyres.
This is because the PR3 introduced razor-thin cuts in the tread, called sipes. Sipes have been around for years on car tyres, helping slice through water and letting the rubber contact the road beneath. But technical issues when using them on round-profile bike tyres lead to overheating and durability problems. In many ways it’s the same problems racers have using wet race tyres on a dry track – the best tread pattern and compound for shifting water will quickly overheat and wear out in the dry.

Well, if a picture can be worth a thousand words then how about 126 ft lbs of torque. Our friends at Motus Motorcycles have published a dyno run from the MST and MST-R bikes showing the ground pounding torque numbers laid down by their V4 powered bikes. Pretty impressive to say the least. Click the image below for the full sized version.
