Adding wow to power
If you want to ride in style this summer season, the new special edition Suzuki GSX1300RZ Hayabusa is a good place to start. Available in the Robinsons Foundry showroom in Canterbury, the hyper-bike stands out from the crowd by featuring a new redand-black paint job and powerful 1340cc engine. It comes with an £11,499 price tag, but also features black brake callipers with red lettering to match the livery and gold fork caps and chain adjusters. Also starring in the Foundry’s collection is a range of Victory motorcycles of which the Broadwalk model is a fine example. The classic cruiser, priced £12,995, puts the rider in a relaxed seating position and the four-stroke V-Twin engine is ideal material for laid-back riding. It rolls on 60-spoke, chromelaced wheels and white walled tyres that complement the bike’s extensive chrome covering and add timeless style. If you want a touring motorbike, the Victory Vision is perfect, and is similarly available in the Canterbury showroom. Priced £18,695 it delivers a relaxed ride, provides ample storage, superior comfort and has a distinctive style on top of its fourstroke V-Twin engine. Elsewhere, t he new Indian Chief Classic, up for £18,499, is a sculpted and powerful cruiser which, despite being built in 2014, has a core retro feel. Its leather seat sits above a thunder stroke engine and it is available in a mean black, blue or red. In complete contrast to the raft of cruisers on offer, two Vespas sit at the opposite end of the power scale at Robinsons. The Sprint 125 3V ABS, at £3,771, may lack a catchy title but this model offers a sporty alternative in the wide Vespa range. With three colours on offer the 124cc single-cylinder engine is small but great fun, while the GTS Super 300, priced at £4,442, is the most powerful Vespa ever produced. The t wo- t one al l oy wheels are a nice touch and it also boasts an enhanced suspension
