Sep 30, 2014 - 3:17 PM - by Motorcycle.com


Quote:

The fall motorcycle season kicks off in Cologne, Germany, with the 50th edition of the Intermot show. The biennial showcase rivals EICMA as one of the biggest motorcycle shows in the world with more than 200,000 visitors expected. Several major manufacturers will be revealing new 2015 models at Cologne. BMW has already confirmed it will reveal three models including an updated S1000RR for its home motorcycle show, while its Austrian neighbor KTM has also announced it will present its 1290 Super Adventure.Ducati‘s lengthy teaser campaign for the Scrambler will finally come to a head at Intermot, while Kawasaki’s supercharged Ninja H2 is already an early favorite to be the biggest news of the show. Other brands such as Aprilia, Moto Guzzi and Yamaha have already released information on their new Intermot show models, but we wouldn’t be shocked if they have a few surprises in store as well. Motorcycle.com will bring you all of the latest Intermot updates from Germany starting Sept. 30.

FZ-09, Japanese Marketing at its Finest or too much Exhaust up the Nose?
Mar 20, 2014 - 12:57 PM - by mr pharmacist
Advertising is a funny business isn't it because at the end of the day you're not selling a product you're selling people someone elses opinion of them based on the image an object. This is why I find Yamaha's new effort for the FZ/MT family to be part fascinating, part baffling, purely entertaining.

Its Called Master of Torque and it takes place in Japan 2017. For any of you familiar with the Initial D anime series Master of Torque gives off the same vibe.

As for the back story, Tokyo will be hosting the Olympics in 2020 and throughout the city the Shutoko highway system is being dismantled and renovated to accomodate the new facilities. Our main character is 27 year old salaryman Dan Amo who works int he General Affairs department of Hyunga Corp. Hyunga is in the process of developing a high powered exo-suit that give people with just an average level of physical fitness the capabilities of a very select group of professional athletes. This is all part of the company’s warped plan to completely dominate their competitors and monopolize the industry.

Dan is not just your typical salaryman, by night he escapes his pallid day time occupation by working as a courier making pickups and deliveries on his FZ-09 Street Rally. He is known as the Zebra to a strange group of riders who trail him regularly on route 246 of the Shutoko, it is revealed that these riders are part of the Hyuga corp, but their purpose is not revealed, yet...

Episode One oddly named Idle Roughness debuted just today, Episode 2 will be out on May 16th, Episode 3 will be released on June 13 and Episode 4 will be available by July 13th.


I think this is some of the most tangible piece of marketing I have seen in sometime. Especially because it jives with the FZ09s narrative as the dark side of Japan. I feel that it does a great job of taping into the freedom from everything that comes from riding, depicted by Dans slumping figure at the end of the office day contrasted with his aggressive riding style and alert eyes. In terms of advertising, who doesnt want to be a hero?
