PRO GuIDe Rapid Bike adds Kawasaki models to ‘Easy’ module application list Italian performance tuning and EFi management specialist Rapid Bike (part of the Dimsport Group) has released an upgraded ‘black label’ version of its popular ‘Easy’ module. Specifically designed to work with the current Euro 4 Kawasaki engines, thanks to new firmware (selected with the setting trim in position 7), a model- specific wiring harness is included, making it compatible with the ’17-‘18 Z 1000 SX Ninja, Z 1000 R and Z 900; the 2018 Z 900 RS and the ’16-‘18 Versys 1000. The new specific part number is KRBEA2-039. The ‘Easy’ kit is the entry level fuelling module in the Rapid Bike product range, and it is specifically designed to manage the stock lambda sensor signal with the goal to optimise fuel ratio and improve engine efficiency and throttle response at lower and medium rpm. Rapid Bike’s Business Development Manager Maurizio Bellucci says “there is no need for additional software procedures since all tuning operations can be performed using two trimmers. “The ‘Easy’ modules can manage up to two lambda sensors and they are the perfect match for motorbikes in stock configuration or with slight modifications such as the use of an aftermarket slip- on. “Another benefit of this module is that it can be considered as a sort of universal device since it is separate from the wiring cable and can be re- installed on different motorbikes once it is coupled with the specific wiring required by each bike model”. Maurizio Bellucci: “There is no need for additional software procedures and the ‘Easy’ modules can manage up to two lambda sensors” RAPID BIKE/DIMSPORT Serralunga di Crea (AL), ITALY Tel. +39 0142 9552 Rukka adds new Urban collection Legendary sportswear and motorcycle clothing brand Rukka has launched a new Urban collection, which the company says “encapsulates style and safety, coolness and comfort, retro and reason”.

There are three retro jackets in different styles. All jackets, available in dark brown or black, have CE certified protectors on the shoulders and elbows and can be fitted with the Rukka D3O All Back protector. ‘Raymore’ is a cotton Cordura jacket that “combines an authentic vintage look with the latest safety and Melfort Raymore Yorkton comfort features”. These features include top quality materials like a highly abrasion resistant blended Cordura cotton fabric and four outer and two interior pockets. Newly developed Rukka D3O Air XTR Level 2 joint protectors offer maximum impact protection, elastic Cordura inserts at the sides as well as the sleeves and shoulders ensure maximum mobility, while air vents provide ventilation.
