Information Liaison 0 24 Article rating: No rating

Muc-Off is bringing its motorcycle-and-bicycle-specific pressure washer to North America. This unique item is designed to clean your bike without causing damage to paintwork or exposed mechanical elements. It’s also portable and designed with a tough exterior copolymer material to improve its durability.

Muc-Off CEO Alex Trimnell said: “I’m so excited to see the Muc-Off Pressure Washer out in the wild. It’s been a labor of love for me and the team for years, and after tons of prototypes I’m delighted to say that we’re really happy with the final result. To be able to give our customers a product that answers one of the biggest challenges in cleaning your bicycle or motorcycle is something I’m super proud of.”

The gun and lance have a smooth-touch matte finish to reduce the likelihood of scratches or dings if the nozzle makes contact with the bike.

There are three lances designed to work with the pressure washer. One is a high-pressure option, another offers adjustable pressure levels; both of these will be included in the kit. The third is a low-pressure version made to work with Muc-Off's Snow Foam; the low-pressure lance is sold separately.

The washer itself runs on a 1,200-watt carbon brush motor that’s capable of pumping out with a max flow rate of 6.5 liters per minute and a maximum pressure of 100 bar.

And if you want to make transport easier, a dry bag carry case is available separately. There will also be bundles with Snow Foam and the Snow Foam lance available.

Small, portable, built to take a beating. The Muc-Off Pressure Washer is made to make cleaning your bike easier, wherever you are.

Yamaha's sportbike lineup is headlined by the growly YZF-R1 and R1M superbikes, both of which get several updates for the 2020 model year. They receive new cylinder heads, upgraded electronics, and evolutionary styling updates. The downside of the R1 is that it's priced at $17,399, putting it financially out of reach for some riders.

Fleshing out what Yamaha calls its “R World” line of supersports are the YZF-R6 and YZF-R3, providing thrills and grins for sporty riders who prefer smaller, lighter, and cheaper faired sportbikes. Unfortunately, the 2020 models don’t receive significant upgrades like their bigger brothers.

The R6 has been perhaps the most successful 600cc sportbike, whether talking about sales volume or racetrack wins. It received an injection of new components in 2017, adopting the R1's styling and suspension, as well as ride modes and traction control. Other nice bits on the four-cylinder R6 include an aluminum fuel tank, magnesium subframe and engine covers, and titanium valves and exhaust.

What you won’t find are any significant updates to the platform for 2020. It will be available in three colorways when it arrives at dealers next month: Vivid Orange/Matte Raven Black, traditional Team Yamaha Blue, or Raven. ABS is included at its $12,199 MSRP. Specifications are listed below.

The R3 is the entry point to Yamaha's "R World," giving sport-minded riders access to the brand's enviable supersport cachet for about $5K. The R3 debuted in 2015, and it was given fresh styling, new instrumentation, and an inverted fork for the 2019 model year.

The Team Yamaha Blue colorway is available without ABS for $4,999. ABS is a minimal $300 option.
