MADNESS PHOTOGRAPHY

Madness Photography started as an official, serious company in 1998.
But the history of Madness Photography started long before. Onno “Berserk” Wieringa, founder and owner of Madness Photography, has been a self-taught photographer since he was a little kid and started to take pictures of something he loved since the day he was born: motorcycles!

His motorcycles
After he finished high school, he started working for various Harley-Davidson shops, where he learned to work on bikes. At the age of 17, he already owned two Triumph’s and when he was eighteen he had four Triumphs and a Suzuki GT 750. After getting his drivers license, when he was eighteen, the Triumphs all had to go and were replaced by a bike that he had wanted since the day he was born; a Harley-Davidson. This bike is still in his life; it’s an FXE-F 1200 Super Glide Fat Bob, which has been rebuild and modified endlessly and ridden for many miles. Going everywhere on the bike, there was one thing he always had in his pocket; his camera!
At the age of 23 he started drag racing, and he and his team named “Midnight Madness”, raced the bike on all the major races and drag strips all over Europe. He has competed in many classes; starting with the Street bikes, than Ultimate Street Bike, Super Stock, Pro-Stock, and then finally in the fastest gas burning class; Top Gas! Also again taking thousands of photo’s of everything interesting, at every racetrack! Being a racer for more than 18 years gave him insight in the world of fast bikes, and he’s still involved in the world of drag racing as a helper/mechanic and of course photographer / reporter.

SUZUKI BLACK KATANA AT MILAN INTERNATIONAL MOTORCYCLE SHOW

SUZUKI SHOWS BLACK KATANA FOR FIRST TIME AT MILAN INTERNATIONAL MOTORCYCLE SHOW
The new Katana stole headlines last month when it was unveiled at the Intermot motorcycle show in Cologne, Germany, and now Suzuki has revealed a black version of the modern retro, which draws inspiration from the original icon launched nearly four decades ago. Shown for the first time today at the Milan show, Italy, the black Katana will join the classic silver in Suzuki’s 2019 range.


The new Katana takes styling cues from the original machine but moves the design into the modern era, with its lines inspired by the handcrafted Japanese sword by the same name.
Yet under the skin the new machine uses thoroughly modern engineering. The frame is the same lightweight, twin-spar aluminium frame that is specific to the popular GSX-S1000 series, while the inline four-cylinder engine is the famed powerplant that began life in another noteworthy Suzuki – the GSX-R1000 K5 – heavily revised and modernised for street-based performance, with a peak power output of 150PS at 10,000rpm, and peak torque of 108Nm at 9,500rpm.


While the original Katana was only available in silver, the expansion to two colour options for 2019 gives customers that added level of choice.

  

Suzuki will be displaying the new Katana at Motorcycle Live which takes places 17-25 November at the NEC in Birmingham, and it is expected to arrive in UK dealerships in spring 2019.
