Moto Guzzi Launched In Italy The Latest Member Of V9 Range

Published by:

Starting this month, we’ll be hearing news with the latest bike announcements from different manufacturers. To start with, Moto Guzzi released its newest addition to the V9 range which is the V9 Bobber Sport. Many people are waiting for this new Moto Guzzi to drop because it will add further options for standard and middle ranged types of bikes. The Bobber Sport is basically a combination of the V9 Roamer and the base model of the V9 Bobber.

The launching was held at Mandello Del Lario plant located in Italy which is considered to be a historic location for the company. This new model is tagged to have a unique personality mainly because of the 853 cc engine which is not only a twin but mounted in transverse position. According to Guzzi, the main inspiration for the V9 Bobber Sport series is the original bobber which was created right after the end of World War II. It is interesting to note that they mention the word series with the Bobber Sport so we can safely assume that more will come out following this model.

Guzzi further explained that there are major changes with the V9 Bobber Sport and one of them is the single-seat saddle which has been lowered and the drag bar was lowered as well in order to complement the lower risers. This gives the entire bike the vibe of a low ride. V9 Bobber is already considered to be low and if this version is even lower, the rider is in for a very compact position while riding.

There are reports that this model will have an Ohlins shock absorber and this is what excites many of the consumers awaiting for this new model. This is something that the standard V9 Bobber really needs in order for the chassis to be controlled properly. Guzzi said that the exhaust pipes of the new Moto Guzzi are going to sport matte black while the bottom will be purely aluminium. As per the company, this new model will come to the United States market before the year ends and the suggested retail price is $10,690.

A Different Adventure In The Waters Of Thailand

Published by:

When you hear Thailand, what comes to mind are pristine beaches, temples and shopping malls. However, before you go to Thailand, remember that there are other adventures you can experience aside from the usual tourist destinations. You can try a sailing trip around the islands through yacht charter in Phuket to enjoy the Adaman Sea and the islands that have not been discovered by mass tourism.

The most popular places in Thailand that tourists are familiar with are Phuket, Pattaya, Ko Samui and Bangkok; however, there is more to Thailand than these places. For example, Koh Chang is one of the largest islands that offer something for all kinds of travellers.

From Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, a traveller can get a connecting flight to Trat, an easternmost province located along the Thai coast. The Trat airport is not your traditional airport that has glass walls and strict immigration and custom clearance officials. Elephant topiary figurines will greet you upon arrival. Its high wooden ceilings, cosy benches and serene ambience will remind you of a grand cottage not an airport arrival lobby.

After leaving the airport, you find food stalls where you can eat homemade sticky rice with chilli, garlic, chicken basil and tea-flavoured ice lolly. The street along the White Sand Beach becomes a makeshift food market at night where vendors sell different kinds of traditional Thai food from meat in skewers to grilled squid and fired insects.

You can start your Thai adventure with the trip to Bangbao, a quaint fishing village which is the main point for those who want to snorkel, scuba dive and enjoy island hopping. Holidaymakers can rent a speedboat to Koh Mak and enjoy the beautiful tropical island of blue waters, white sand and palm trees. At Koh Rang, some of the most amazing underwater corals and vibrant-hued fish can be found.

There are different types of sailing packages available to travellers from yacht charter in Phuket to catamarans. There is a choice between crewed and bareboat charters for day or weekly trips around the islands. For inexperienced travellers, there are crewed trips with a team that will provide all the necessary service for your comfort and convenience.
