The New generation of SuperMoto

The new generation of Supermoto bikes by Husqvarna is truly the essence of Supermoto. The sexy yet tough bike is good on off road and on track racing. The Supermoto sport is a mix of different skills required for street racing, motocross and dirt track. The Swedish styled bike is on a class of its own

At a glance, the bike looks simple and hard. But on a second look, the monstrosity is seen on the one sided exhaust, the height and tires, the two front forks - simply amazing. The “modified suspension, street wheels and tires is the perfect recipe for a Supermoto” (bikebandit.com, 2015)

Whether it is the Supermoto 701 or the FS 450 engines, the immense power can be seen as the bike just wants to take off. The displacement of the 750 as compared to the 450 can tell the difference between the pro’s and the newbies in the game, the man and the boy.

This would be a beast to own someday but with reservations as the thrill, the rush could also mean the crush and the injuries compounded. The bike is very different from a any KTM model though its part of the KTM group by acquisition. A chance to hear this bike roar or see it in action on track or the dirt road is always a warm welcomed sight. Machoni Mwangu Photography got a chance to witness the bike in action in one of the Superbike Association races held in Kenya. Watch this space for the new upcoming races. Below is some images of this Supermoto

Honda Shadow 750cc Cruiser

The Honda Shadow 750cc cruiser is indeed a beauty with gorgeous pipes and shinny chromes. The bike is based on Honda's venerable liquid-cooled 52-degree V-twin engine. It has an impressive torque in the lower rpm ranges. The engine sports twin-plug, three-valve cylinder heads, with two intakes. At calm speeds along the greens, the bike was easy and noisily picking up speed. Fantastic however, the pillion seat is just miniature. For a long distance, it is sure going to hurt your rear.

The well kept and nicely spruced up Honda shadow cruiser got Kevin and I meet up at the Karirana estates one Sunday afternoon for a shoot. The idea was bring out the chrome on the bike against the back ground of the coffee plantations and the blue sky. The clear road and winding turns brought out some great images ideas as well

A Lesson in Tennis

Every great dream starts with a dreamer and a lesson in any game will instill a passion in life that could be a turning point for some. Tennis is a racket sport which can be played individually against a single opponent or between two teams of two players each. Each player uses a tennis racket that is strung with cord to strike a hollow rubber ball into the opponent's court. We chose to showcase a passion in tennis with a friend of mine which produced great images as well.
