Conquest Racing – Motorcycle Performance Parts
WELCOME TO CONQUEST RACING LTD
Conquest Racing Ltd – (AKA Conquest Carbon) – was founded back in 2012
Our business has flourished ever since so inevitably a website to sell the inventory was essential. We realised that carbon fibre was a very popular product so we set out to find the best manufacturers to supply our customers.
We have always strived to seek out and acquire the very best motorcycle performance parts that manufacturers in the motorcycle industry can provide, as we see it as our personal mission to be leaders in this vastly competitive marketplace.
Never willing to sit still and relax on our laurels, we have moved on to supplying other high-performance motorcycle parts including CNC parts, race screens, crash protection & performance air filters up to and including performance exhausts for road and race use.

MV Agusta 800 Dragster RR Review
“Yes, it goes as well as it looks!”
Overall Rating 4 out of 5
Yes this blinged-up version of the Dragster variant of MV’s 800 Brutale is expensive, but then it’s truly special, too. There are cheaper bikes, more manageable bikes, even faster bikes in the same category but this one is special. And yes, it’s not 100% perfect and certainly not for everyone, but just look at it! And it goes as well as it looks!
Ride Quality & Brakes 4 out of 5
If the power delivery is a little aggressive, then so is thew Dragster RR’s handling. Twitchy is the word. MV is obviously aware of this and have added a top yoke steering damper. There was never an alarming almighty slap, but I had more than a few twitches on the narrow bumpy Italian roads. The wheelbase is short, it’s a light bike with a firm set up and lots of power, it was always going to be a little lively.
My only other gripe was the ride is on the firm side. I got thrown out of the seat on the odd occasion, the bars shake a little and you get hammered by the hard forks which aren’t absorbing the huge bumps. In MVs’ defence the roads were really bad and I was hitting them hard like a Greyhound that had just been released from the trap, I simply couldn’t ride slowly. On smoother roads it worked far better.
Engine 4 out of 5
MV have upped the triple’s performance from 125bhp to 140bhp by increasing the size of the air-box, improving the exhaust flow but more importantly revising the fuelling, which now with two twin injectors per cylinder. They’ve also tried to smooth out the power delivery amd make the torque more linear, which was a criticism of the old bike and they’ve done just that.
The old 800 had bags of attitude but was hard work and aggressive. But this engine is a peach. Fire up the 800cc triple and there’s a real rasp. It sounds lovely, revving quickly with aggression. Combine that with clutchless gear changes and intoxicating noise it’s hard not to thrash it. You end up attacking roads not riding them.

Build Quality & Reliability 5 out of 5
These pictures don’t really do the bike justice, you have to see it in the flesh to get the full impact; but be warned you’ll want one. The finish is outstanding, the paintwork looks handcrafted, the top yoke is lovely. Imagine casting an admiring glance over this MV every time you open your garage door, you’d smile every time
Insurance, running costs & value 3 out of 5
There’s no getting away from the fact that this is a helluva lot of money for ‘only’ an 800. But there’s also nothing else quite like it (although the Brutale version is a little cheaper and possibly more useful). Possibly the ultimate middleweight poster bike. Insurance group: 17 of 17
Equipment 4 out of 5
There’s not just three rider modes; Rain, Normal and Sport, there’s a quick-shifter, traction control, slipper clutch and top notch cycle parts everywhere you look, such as the amazing Brembo stoppers which lure you into taking huge liberties. Straight line braking is immense; just grab a handful of lever and let the electronics do all the work.
It’s impossible to lock either wheel and impossible to stoppie, you won’t be thrown over the bars due to the rear wheel lift intervention. It’s one of the best braking bikes on the market, period.

2015 Ducati Multistrada 1200, Ducati’s big-selling Multistrada 1200 gets a massive overhaul for 2015, making it an almost all-new bike, with variable valve control engine, all-new electronics, revised styling and improvements to rider comfort and convenience. There are two models – the standard 1200, and an ‘S’ model which also includes the D-Air version that links to Dainese’s electronically-controlled rider airbag system.
The overall appearance of the new bike is still very recognisably Multistrada, but the new Ducati Variable Timing (DVT) version of the Testastretta 1198cc V-twin is now producing 160bhp at peak power, and with gains throughout the range thanks to the engine’s ability to adjust the valve timing to suit both low rev torque and higher rev power.
Other new features include an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), which works with the electronics by measuring roll, yaw and pitch angles as well as the rate of transition between them. This system works with the 1200’s cornering ABS, wheelie control, eight-stage traction control and the semi-active Skyhook suspension taken from the outgoing model. Cruise control is now standard on all models and a new multimedia system connects the bike to a smartphone by Bluetooth and allows interactivity between the bike and the phone for things like calls and text message notifications, and it even has a full LED headlight with the ability to light around corners.
Ducati revealed they would be using the DVT system on a secret new 2015 bike three weeks ago, and MCN spy shots confirmed two weeks ago that it would be the Multistrada 1200. The system works to independently vary the timing of the camshaft that control both intake and exhaust valves according the best solution determined by the revs.
The intention is to provide the best of both worlds with low to medium rev torque and engine smoothness but higher rev power and performance. It works to constantly vary the degree of valve overlap so it’s always optimally matched to engine revs.
The DVT system is divided into two parts: an external housing rigidly connected to the timing belt and an internal mechanism connected to the camshaft. The internal mechanism can rotate and advance or retard the valve timing depending on the oil pressure in control chambers, which is adjusted by dedicated valves according to the engine revs and load.
The IMU is the control and monitoring unit that processes and governs all the other electronic systems, including the traction control, anti-wheelie, cornering ABS, cornering lights and the four riding modes along with the Skyhook semi-active suspension.
The riding modes are carried over from the outgoing model with Sport, Touring, Urban and Enduro modes. They range from offering the full 160bhp in Sport and Touring but drop to 100bhp in the other modes. ABS, traction control, the semi-active suspension, ride height, throttle response and wheelie control are all adjusted according to each mode.
A larger front fairing, bigger (adjustable) windscreen, altered riding position and re-profiled height adjustable seat are, Ducati claims, big contributions to the improvement of rider comfort on the new Multistrada 1200. The seat now adjusts between 825mm and 845mm and the handlebars are rubber mounted to reduce vibration. The 12v power sockets have also been moved to more convenient locations.
