Motoring

Future of leisure Motorcycles

Cardinals Boksburg, agreed to bring an Indian Scout to our launch of Anytime Anywhere magazine and to say that we were thrilled was an understatement. It has always been my dream bike. Here are some photos from the launch.

Indian Motorcycle announced a few weeks ago,  that all of its 2018 models with the Thunder Stroke 111 engine have increased power and torque.

With motorcycles now having to meet EU4 emission rules, there has been an on-going homologation process at Spirit Lake to ensure Indian offers the best products possible.

As such, for 2018, all of the Thunder Stroke 111 engined models have a 15hp increase in power and a 15Nm increase in torque (models now have 84hp and 150Nm).

Indian Motorcycle’s International Product Manager, Ben Lindaman commented: “Indian’s engineering team achieved the increase in power and torque by removing intake restrictions, equipping the bikes with better flowing exhaust, and optimising the calibration for this setup. The results are a substantial 21% power increase and an improved throaty exhaust tone as well.”

Its time to use this power and visit one of South Africa’s premier bike rallies! The South Coast Bike Fest.

One of the biggest events on the KwaZulu-Natal calendar, the annual South Coast Bike Fest™, is set to attract record crowds to the Margate Beachfront Boulevard on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast as engines get revving from 27 to 30 April 2018.

Positioning itself as Africa’s premier motorbike and music festival event, the second edition of the South Coast Bike Fest™ was established on the entrenched tradition of biking festivals in Margate. The 2017 festival attracted almost 60 000 visitors – locally and further afield – who enjoyed an incredible showcase of bike displays, non-stop entertainment, fabulous food and quality musical acts that cut across every genre from reggae to rock.

And the 2018 edition is set to build on this success with an even more action-packed line-up of entertainment, tasty cuisine, coastal bars and brilliant biking displays. Some of the highlights include:

  • Stunt shows and Powasol Enduro X in the Energy Zone Arena.
  • Top musical acts at the Jack Daniels Village Pier Rock Stage and Main Beach Stage.
  • Quality fashion shows and Miss South Coast Bike Fest™.
  • A range of food options in the pop-up food villages.
  • A selection of seaside bars.
  • Various parades and outrides including the mass ride.

The event, which is presented by Ugu South Coast Tourism with endorsement and support from Ugu District and Ray Nkonyeni Municipalities, is also a major boost for local tourism. There are a number of accommodation venues available throughout the area, ranging from campsites to high-end hotels, and there are already a number of early bookings being made for 2018.

All bikers and pillions are urged to pre-register online for free access to the entire event precinct including the main stage featuring all the headline artist performances. The non-biking community will be charged a nominal fee of R60 per day which provides access to the event precinct including the three main beach festival stages, beachfront boulevard themed bars, street entertainment, demo rides, trader and expo zones, stunt shows, food courts, EnduroX staging arenas and all associated motorcycle enthusiast festival activations.

About the author

Geniene Preston

I have travelled the world – almost 82 countries and has been in publishing since 2003. Before that I was an IT Project manager for over 20 years and woke up one day to the realisation that actually all I wanted to do was write. So I started my first magazine Style in IT which was, in essence, a newsletter. But I loved it and I started my own mouthpiece SA Commuter. I re-invented myself once Smart phones became popular and learnt Social Media so that I could be a pro at Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Now I could have fun instantly! My world has grown and includes reviews and with over 49000 followers on Trip Advisor I am in the top 1% of reviewers in South Africa. I am a true South African and a love of Johannesburg has kept me here since 1981. My stories are real and I love people and history! Now I publish Anytime Magazine in print and online as well as my blog, sacommuter.com
