Later became known only when the motor is wearing the tires provided by Bridgestone Battlax there are two motors, in addition there are also yellow-white color that's just the type of RV is used for shooting on the spot.
SL.com tested the motor Megelli 250RE in the third group, together with three other bloggers, among others, Bro Adhi Nugroho, and Edo Rusyanto Bro, Bro Taufik Hidayat. Unfortunately, Bro Triatmono not present, even though his name had been put up in this third group. Finally, the committee substitute Bro Triatmono with one journalist (unknown name) of a print media. Wow .. if not exciting race among bloggers cowboy. :-)
We all are equipped with motor racing equipment, more love for SL.com can not wear wear-pack racing Minerva already provided by the committee because of the size XL is still felt cramped, and can not enter the body. Finally SL.com Minerva jacket and wearing only a surge protector on the knees. In this first part, SL.com also try racing shoes provided by pantitia red.
After five rounds of the Sentul circuit, SL.com have his own view that the motor is feasible to meet the wishes of consumers who play dikecepatan 100 km / h to 148 km / hour. In fact, SL.com penetrating at a speed of 148 kilometers / hour, while Bro Taufik max. 146 km / hour. Automotive journalists who wonder Mr Antony Bro. Testo can pass 157 km / hour.

Problem record this speed, can be seen through the instrument speedometer mounted on a motor Koso Megelli 250R New Version in which this instrument has a maximum memory speed. That is, this tool can record the maximum speed. Furthermore, who can pass that number it will automatically delete old numbers, and record the latest figures (even higher).
To Megelli 250RE white color, previously used Bro Antonio Automotive recorded 157 km / h, and the committee provides the opportunity for participants to shoot four balls the second stage, with the intention exceeded 157 km / hr. SL.com included in the list of participants to try out again this bike, but unfortunately only two rounds at the Sentul circuit turns can only max. 135 km / hour. Motor needs to be re-setting.
Maximum Speed Still Question Mark
Whatever the outcome, especially about the speed of the above, there are actually quite profound curiosity for SL.com and full of questions marks. Why?
For more objective the committee should provide additional tools for measuring the speed, so it can be proved that the speed that has been taken is correct, or the same plus-minus approach. However, in principle menggeber SL.com already exhausted this 250RE Megelli motor racing arena Sentul who have a track straight in front of the podium.
Both motors yellow and white color Megelli 250 RE, both already gassed-out but could not penetrate above the figure of 150 km / hour. What is certain is its own pleasure sensation in every corner Sentul, this bike is very stable.
It is hardly an exaggeration to PT MMI eligible to join the race, has Megelli racing team and mechanics who can lift the image of this motor as a motor racing. Just for your info, in the trial yesterday, the motor that is used by each participant is still in standard conditions, not to be set as motor racing.
