Next generation MV Agusta to adopt four-cylinder engines

first_imgIt appears that Varese-based motorcycle artisans MV Agusta will be gaining a new series of engines destined for its next generation models.A report is stating that the brand’s Turismo Veloce 800 will be the last MV Agusta to be fielded with its current signature range of triple-cylinder mill. The report went on further to state that MV Agusta are presently in the midst of developing a new four-cylinder engine family that will likely be shown as early as this year’s annual EICMA motorcycle show.Whether MV Agusta will display its 2016 models using its new four-cylinder at EICMA 2016 remains to be seen. However, we have reason to believe that MV Agusta will likely field its new four-cylinder in its flagship F4 supersport model. The F4 has been the staple model in MV’s range since 2006, making it the oldest model in its current range as well.2014 has proven to be a pivotal year for the MV Agusta brand. After Mercedes-AMG’s acquisition of its shares earlier this year, the brand also secured a major financial loan for a reported long-term development and expansion plan. And it seems this new four-cylinder engine range is just the start of things.Source: Asphaltandrubber–Ads– Next generation MV Agusta bikes will adopt new series of four-cylinder engines.last_img read more

During his reign, the Smurfs have already won the Bulgarian Cup twice and the Super Cup once, but according to the businessman himself, this is not the ceiling of the Plovdiv team.“We have come a long way for five years now.

A lot of people thought I was a parachutist, but I have a plan for Lokomotiv Plovdiv from the very beginning. I’m thinking about the club’s school and this is the next step,” he told Sport in the Lens.We are waiting at any moment to get the opportunity to build the base of the club and the children to train there. We will also make a serious renovation of Lokomotiv Stadium. In a year I think we will have a renovated stadium.

Funniest Kevin Durant memes after fleeing OKC to play for Golden State

first_imgKevin Durant is taking a social media beating of epic proportions after he shocked the sportsworld and agreed to play for the team that beat him in the NBA Western Conference Finals, the Golden State Warriors.The deal is worth $54 million over two years to play alongside Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green and the Warriors, the very team Durant and his Oklahoma City Thunder squandered a 3-1 series lead and should have gone to the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers.Speaking of which, Durant has suddenly supplanted LeBron James as the most hated player in the NBA after basically repeating what King James did six years ago when he left Northeast Ohio for the comfy confines of South Beach and played alongside Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh and the Miami Heat. However, lead by LBJ, the Heat went to four straight NBA titles and won two Larry O’Brien trophies.It remains to be seen if Durant can duplicate those feats. Meanwhile, social media is eating Durant alive. Take a look at the funniest Durant memes for bolting Oklahoma City for Oakland, Calif.last_img read more
