It beats the Ducati Streetfighter V4 by 1 bhp. Its unique SC Project exhaust system gives it 209 bhp and 116 Nm. The 2020 MV Agusta Rush 1000 is definitely extreme. MV Agusta is nothing if not for their radical bikes, but the 2020 MV Agusta Rush 1000 is an extreme.The manufacturer says that it’s a tribute to the drag racing scene. But without an elongated swingarm and lowered body stance, it’s more of a streetfighter. Even then, it looks like its stylists were given the free hand to go bonkers.The Rush 1000 is based on the Brutal 1000RR but MV gave specialist exhaust makers SC Project the task of producing a unique system. Instead of being routed out the side, the dual tips exit behind the frame and just above the rear tyre.Fitted with the pipes, the engine liberates 209 bhp and 116 Nm of torque, placing it well in the hypernaked category. In fact, it is the most powerful against the 208 bhp Ducati Streetfighter V4 and 197 bhp Kawasaki Z H2.There’s plenty of carbon fibre to bring its weight down to 185 kg, dry. That disc-like rear wheel cover is carbon, hiding a forged-aluminium wheel.Front brakes are Brembo Stylema 4-piston calipers gripping 320 mm discs. Öhlins electronic suspension is rightfully fitted.No price yet, but it’s definitely going to be expensive. We wonder if MV Agusta will make a more “regular” version to challenge the Streetfighter V4.–Ads–

Cavaliers Legend Nate Thurmond passed away earlier today. Here is a statement on behalf of the entire Cavs organization from Cavs Director of Alumni Relations and Nate’s teammate and friend, Campy Russell:“We are very saddened by the loss of Nate Thurmond. Nate’s jersey hangs in the rafters at The Q because of the unselfish way the Akron native and Hall of Famer approached the game we all love, the teammate that he was, his profound impact on one of the most special seasons in Cavaliers history, and the way that all translated on and off the court to reflect the ‘All for One. One for All.’ code. Just as Nate always held the Miracle team, the Coliseum crowds and his local roots dear to him, the Cavaliers franchise will always love and respect him as a true Cavalier legend. We extend our deepest condolences to Nate’s wife, Marci, and their family during this difficult time.” Matt Medley Related Topics
Port Isabel Volunteer Fire Department firefighters seen are Luis Perez, Greg Ruiz and John Sandoval. (Staff photo by Ray Quiroga)By RAY QUIROGAPort Isabel-South Padre PRESSrayq@portisabelsouthpadre.comGiven the events in Boston this past Monday, have you asked yourself just how far would you go for your neighbor or your community?There’s a groups of individuals right here in Port Isabel that is willing to surrender life and limb to save not only your life but your property as well, and they’re willing to do it at a moment’s notice at no monetary cost. They are the Port Isabel Volunteer Fire Department (PIVFD).But the service is not without its costs which come mostly in the form of equipment that takes a beating and is mandated to be periodically replaced.To help with those costs, the PIVFD will be hosting its 11th Annual PIVFD/Bob Harris Memorial Golf Tournament on April 27 at the South Padre Island Golf Course in Laguna Vista.For over 73 years, the PIVFD has been an integral part in fire support, prevention and rescue for the City of Port Isabel and surrounding communities. The PIVFD rely heavily on donations and fund-raisers to raise funds for equipment and training material. The tournament is one of those fund-raisers held in remembrance of Fire Marshal Robert Harris who was a victim of the tragic collapse of the Queen Isabella Causeway 11 years ago. According to PIVFD Senior Firefighter John Sandoval, Harris was responding to a then unknown call when, en route on the causeway, his vehicle fell into a gap on the bridge.While all but one current member of the department can say they personally knew Harris when he was living, the current group tries to live by his example on a daily basis.Sandoval, a six-year veteran of the department and a full time code enforcement officer for the city, said the department currently boasts about 15 volunteers who are required to attend a weekly meeting and answer, “the call,” at any time of the week, day or hour. “We’re a nonprofit and we’re all volunteers. It’s a pretty big thing to ask of people that they be free 365 days out of the year because you never know what’s going to happen,” Sandoval said.For Port Isabel native Greg Ruiz, 25, firefighting is in his blood. “Two of my uncles were firefighters and one even got hurt on his way to the Island responding to a call,” he explained.Still in high school, 19-year-old Luis Perez aspires to be a professional firefighter one day and even hopes to make it a course of study when he enters college.“That’s what I’ve always wanted to do and I’m even going to make it my major when I go to college,” Perez said.The tournament is a four-man scramble and prizes will be awarded for first through third place finishers, longest drive, straightest drive, hole in one.The registration fee is $65 per person or $260 for an entire team and it includes green fee, cart, lunch and drinks at the event. Sponsorships are also available and more information can be obtained by calling Fire Marshal Rodrigo Garcia at (956) 943-3523 or Daniel Marchan at (956) 943-1242.

Assembly member Brent Johnson co-sponsored the ordinance which states “the current process has made it difficult for citizens wishing to form a local option zone to be successful”. Johnson says one of the biggest changes in the proposed rewrite is the size of lot that can be forced by surrounding lots to be included in a local option zone district. Asmb. Johnson: “Previously there was no specific size of lot that was restricted out so previously a guy could own an 80 acre lot and have the folks around him say ‘Guess what, we’re forcing you into our local option zone [district] and now you can’t have a gravel pit.’ So with the new ordinance the maximum size of lot is five acres, unless, somebody with a larger lot can volunteer to be in but they cannot be forced to be in.” The Borough Assembly will take public comment on the ordinance at their 6:00 pm, Tuesday, February 2 meeting.Click here for that proposed ordinance. Asmb. Johnson: “The fact that it’s been in place for at least ten years or more and in that period of time there’s been maybe five local option zones formed.” FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Borough Assembly will take public comment on simplified local option zoning rules Tuesday. Local Option Zoning is the process by which neighborhoods of 12 lots or more can propose to ban or support anything from pot cultivation to gravel pits. The local-options zoning provisions were last rewritten in 2000 and the Borough’s Planning and Legal departments have been reviewing those for several months.
GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 NAGOYA – Chika Horie, who won the 2002 Hokkaido Marathon, will sit out the Nagoya International Women’s Marathon this Sunday for health reasons, race organizers said Wednesday.Organizers said Horie is one of four runners who will miss the race, leaving 18 invited guests, including overseas runners, to the meet that also serves as the final Olympic qualifier for Japanese athletes. Last month, Sydney Olympic gold medalist Naoko Takahashi said she would not run in the Nagoya meet.That means she will have to wait to see if she gets picked by the Japan Association of Athletics Federations for one of the three available Olympic berths for Japanese women.
