Adding wow to power

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Summer Fun -

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
