When it comes to sport bikes, the Japanese big four often come to mind : Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, and Yamaha. However, in recent years, the German manufacturer, BMW, introduced their S1000RR.

What is the BMW S1000RR?

What does the S1000RR stand for?? Well, the “S” in this ridiculously powered German bike’s name stands for “sportbike”. Most can assume that the “1000” is an indication of enging size. Then, the “RR” means race replica like most RR’s. Most people already know this, but in case some don’t, now ya know!

How does it compare to Japanese litre bikes?

BMW proves to be better as the increase of 7 HP and low weight results in better overall results. BMW S1000RR now features twin headlight with a symmetrical design, lighter fairing, and better aerodynamic ability [...]

Honda is one of the most prestigious manufacturers of motorcycles. Their versatility as a maker of motorcycles is what makes them unique and might be a reason for their continued success. This is best showcased in their 500cc motorcycles, namely the CB500F, CB500R, and the CBR500R. Although all motorcycles have the same power plant they all behave like different animals.

There is a pleasure that comes from riding a motorcycle due largely to the complete stimulation of the senses. You feel the thrust of air, see the world blur in front of you, hear the howl of wind, smell the ever changing environment, and taste exhilaration. The Yamaha understood that and developed the FZ-09


Equipped with a 3 cylinder 847cc engine that produces 115 hp and is mated with a 6 speed transmission, this motorcycle is versatile. When you push it, it doesn’t push back, it actually asks for more. As you travel through the power band of the engine you feel your heart beat in line with the increasing RPMs and that’s is what triggers the complete stimulation of the senses.¬†

Here at AK Motors we truly believe that motorcycle riders have their own culture. Today we would like to discuss a couple of phrases that people may not be familiar with.

Brain Bucket: This is a what we call helmets, that’s where your brain goes….

Megaphone: A modified or aftermarket exhaust. Usually louder than the stock exhaust this earning the name of a “megaphone”

Gixxer: A motorcycle manufactured by suzuki. Originally names GSX-R but saying “GEE ES EX AR” bikers have quickly named it gixxer. It just rolls off the tongue.

Naked: A motorcycle without fairings (all that plastic around your legs). Has mechanical [...]

Introduced in 2015 the Yamaha¬†YZF-R3 has made an impression in the beginner bike market, our impression is that this bike isn’t solely for beginners. Addressing the elephant in the room: this bike will not outperform any of the bigger bikes in the market, but not everything is a race and that is not to say that this bike isn’t enjoyable.

The Yamaha R3 weighs in at 368lbs and is paired with a 320cc engine that puts out 42HP and 21lbs of torque. The end result is a motorcycle that can handle it’s own and won’t easily be outgrown by novice riders. The R3 delivers a surprising punch north of the 5k rpm range which can be sure to give you a smile. The R3 shouldn’t be overlooked just because it isn’t a marquee sports bike, there is [...]

Riding a motorcycle provides us with joy and pleasure, however we must not forget that operating a motorcycle comes with responsibilities. One of the most important parts of safe operation is the tires and it is our responsibility as riders to inspect our tires before every ride. Regular inspection can can ensure maximum lifespan of your tires and sustain ride safety. The following should help you monitor your tires throughout their lifespan.

Under inflated tires can wear out considerably faster, thus hurting your wallet and your chance of staying upright. Consider investing in an air pump and a tire pressure gauge. Inflate tires in the temperature you plan to ride, to put it simply, do no inflate tires in a warm garage if you plan to ride in cold weather and vise-versa.  Refer to the tire manufacturer as pressure can [...]

Here we see a motorcyclist who isn’t equipped with adequate protection, is not focused on the road, and is improperly operating¬†their motorcycle as he only has one arm in on the handlebars. This is a squid, DON’T BE A SQUID. There is no conceivable reason to operate a motorcycle this way, this will result to in harm to yourself and those that love you. While squids may think that they look better/cooler without proper motorcycle attire, seasoned riders think [...]
