    For more than 35 years, the Honda Gold Wing has stood alone at the forefront of the luxury touring class. One of the big reasons it stays there is because we're constantly updating and innovating, without ever losing sight of the Gold Wing's core greatness. The improvements and features we're offering on our 2012 models are a perfect example of that: The new (sleek new bodywork, our new trip planner, an even nicer seat) combine with the proven (a famously smooth six-cylinder engine and a twin-spar chassis influenced by our years of Grand Prix racing) to give you the best Gold Wing ever.

Since it’s a four cylinder, it’s plenty smooth for longer rides too.

    The CB1000R uses a 998cc inline-four engine based on a previous generation CBR1000RR, but is tuned to produce more torque and horsepower in the midrange and bottom end-the perfect combination for a machine like this.

  • Motorcycle Honda Hornet CB600FA

    Since it first shook up the street fighter scene in 1998, the CB600F Hornet has become one of the most influential middleweight Naked motorcycles. A close blood relative of the race-winning CBR600RR, the first CB600F presented an unprecedented package of sporty performance and light, user-friendly handling.

    Note: I am a happy owner of a 2001 Hornet CB600.

    The 2012 CB600F will come in three color versions, including a sophisticated new matt grey metallic and a vibrant new pearlescent blue. Each color is highlighted by its striking contrast with the solid, mechanical look of the CB600F’s Axis Grey Metallic wheels and prominent engine.

    from the 2012 swiss-moto.ch

    The CB600F engine is known for its responsive delivery and powerful, torque drive. It was originally developed alongside the engine for the CBR600RR, giving it sporty acceleration and precise response. The CB600F engine is tuned for strong midrange power and torque to deliver fast acceleration out of the corners, combined with a high-revving top end that creates its exhilarating street fighter character.
    Developed with the advantages of race-bred technology, the CB600F engine is designed for both versatility and reliability. Durable and requiring little maintenance, it adds to the easy ownership that is essential to the very spirit of the Hornet.
    Advanced PGM-FI electronic fuel injection provides instant throttle response, precise control of the engine’s power and smooth, predictable changes in speed. Combined with Honda’s oxygen-sensing catalytic converter system it also helps to keep harmful exhaust emissions to a minimum.
    Short and compact, the engine is positioned for an ideal balance of weight, which combines with the bike’s chassis characteristics to create nimble, responsive handling. The exhaust system is low-slung and positioned for a low center of gravity and maximum mass centralization.

    How do you classify a bike as sharp as the Honda Sabre? Pro Street dragster or boulevard bad boy—the Sabre offers a heaping dose of both. It’s a sleek, modern-day custom, that’s for sure. Taking a cue from the stripped-down styling of the Fury, it goes on to carve out its own, very unique place in the Honda Custom lineup. Just check out the crisp, clean lines, sporty, minimalist fenders, tall, 21-inch front tire, raked-out fork and low, aggressively set bars. And let’s not forget the brawny 1312cc 52º V-twin engine responsible for putting all this wickedly cool style in motion.

  • The innovation speed in Blockchain landscape is just breathtaking and being able to (or to be honest trying to...) follow all these rapid changes is a chance for all software engineers.

    At the core of the Blockchain disruption are consensus algorithm:

    Consensus algorithms enable network participants to agree on the contents of a blockchain in a distributed and trust-less manner.

    And the consensus algorithm plays a crucial role in maintaining the safety and efficiency of blockchain. Using the right algorithm may bring a significant increase to the performance of blockchain application.

    But do you know how much consensus type are out there? or where they are applied? my new Consensus Map may help you there exploring the always evolving landscape:

    Here is the actual Consensus list: DPoR, DPoS, DPoS/LPoS, FBA, HPoW, LFT, Limited Confidence Proof-of-Activity, Ouroboros, POBh, PoA, PoB, PoB/PoS, PoC, PoI, PoP, PoP/PoV/PoQ, PoPP, PoR, PoS, PoS/LPoS, PoS/PoB, PoS/PoD, PoS/PoP, PoS/PoW, PoS/PoW/PoT, PoST, PoSign, PoW, PoW/DPoW, PoW/HiPoS, PoW/PoM/PoSII, PoW/PoS, PoW/PoS/PoC, PoW/PoSC, PoW/PoZ, PoW/nPoS, PoWT Proof of Believability, Proof of Existence, Proof of Ownership, Proof of Time, Scrypt-adaptive-N (ASIC resistant), TPoS, Tangle, dPoW/PoW, mFBA 

    You can filter by any type of Consensus and zoom, learn more about them by hovering over the menu.

    The map also feature a mode selector at the bottom, if you switch to Algorithm Map you'll see where each of the 82 cryptographic algorithm are used!

     

    The Map will be auto-magically regenerated every week on Sunday evening. The tedious task of maintaining the list of all Consensus algorithms (I've documented 60+ but only 47 are represented) and their descriptions are (still) maintained manually.

    More filters will be added soon (showing for example only the top 100 by market cap, consensus by date of creation, and so on...), and your feedback is always welcomed.
