The “CowBoy” is a huge Harley-Davidson fan, and we are so happy to be associated with our name in such high regard in the boxing ring. “The team at the dealership support the sport and we will all on the 7 april. it is fantastic that he has chosen the brand for his that he will also be wearing his new Harley-Davidson Windhoek dealer shirt on the night. large-capacity, naturally aspirated engines; manual transmissions; hydraulic power steering. They all have one thing in common: a spot on the endangeredspecies list. The motorcar is changing and, as engines are downsized and turbocharged, then coupled with automatic transmissions before being paired with hybrid systems on their journey to becoming fully electric, we thought it the perfect time to reassess an automotive anachronism, the nissan 370Z. The Z-car is a Japanese icon and its roots can be traced back to the 1969 240Z. That perfectly proportioned coupé with its long bonnet and muscular haunches struck a chord with the public and some christened it the Japanese E-Type. six generations later, in 2009, the 370Z was launched locally and has stayed true to the original concept while adding more performance and street presence. We tested an automatic version in the July 2009 issue of CaR and heaped praise on it. Here’s just one such example of the purple prose: “in every sinew a muscle car, offering all the right ingredients for a ride on the wild side.” nearly nine years later, the 370Z, adding metal-effect door handles, a black-painted rear diffuser, tinted lamp lenses and a new set of 19-inch Rays Engineering alloy wheels. inside, not much has changed. with buttons, a clunky infotainment system and no reach adjustment on the steering column (although most could instead, focus on the trio of Z- car gauges on the dash (showing time, battery voltage and engine oil temperature) and the large central rev counter with a 7 500 r/min redline, and it’s obvious pottering about is not the 370Z’s raison d’être. Depress the slightly stiff left pedal (connected to the new Exedy semi-racing clutch plate), shift action of the six-speed manual gearbox, increase the revs and drop the clutch. Depending on whether the driver Boxing sensation the ‘Cowboy’ teams up with Harley- Davidson The ‘Cowboy’ is certainly looking forward to making a grand entrance and arriving in spotlight on the back one of the latest top-of-the-range Harley- Davidson models currently on Woema caught up with ‘The Cowboy’ who admitted that he is a big fan of Harley-Davidson motorcycles. He says that because he is a ‘Cowboy’, there is a strong association between the two, which is one of the reasons he so strongly connected to the brand. “i was always a big fan of cowboy movies since i was a kid, and learnt aboutHarley-Davidson motorcycles through watching interest at an early age, and since then i’ve always wanted to own one but never had the funds,” said the boxing champ. “i visited the showroom last year, and decided,sincei am the only ‘Cowboy’ in namibia, to team up the dealership and see has switched off the traction control (via a quick-touch button), the Z will either scamper off the line with the electronic nannies on full alert, or paint black Bridgestone 11s on the road. a shift to second pauses the action for a moment as the Z’s nose dives, whereafter the hooliganism continues and the smile on the driver’s faces broadens… on our test strip, the nissan needed a more measured approach than that to post a 0-100 km/h time of 5,91 seconds, just about good enough to see off those pesky FWD hot hatches. Under the bonnet beats the same 3,7-litre V6 mounted far back in the bay. it features variable valve timing and lift, but was never – and still isn’t – the smoothest or most free-revving V6. saying that, the induction noise is addictive and motivates the driver to keep their foot planted on the accelerator for longer. Driving the nissan as intended sends the fuel consumption rocketing skywards from the already hefty 13,3 l/100 km we achieved on our standard how far we can take the relationship. swakopmund when i arrived on the back of a Harley-Davidson, so this grand arrival into the ring is fast becoming my trademark.” The ‘Cowboy’ maintains that he can ride bike, and previously owned two quad bikes - a suzuki and Honda. aside from a Harley-Davidson being his dream motorcycle, his favourite ride is a Merc G-Wagon. Furthermore, “The Cowboy” has bounced back into the limelight after a break, and is poised to lock horns with south africa’s Roarke Knapp at the His professional debut was in 2016 December and he has a national championship title wrapped round his waist, topped with a sparkling World Boxing Federation (WBF) and all africa Championship belt. now he has added the incredible Harley-Davidson lifestyle to top this glory. Road test of the nissan 370Z coupe (sedate) fuel run and the 72-litre basis. Braking performance, however, is deeply impressive even by supercar standards and the Z recorded an average of 2,71 during our punishing 10-stop braking routine from 100 km/h. Dynamically, it still feels competitive. The ride is cosseting over broken surfaces and affords the Z a rounded character for daily use. a mass of 1 536 kg (measured on our scales fully fuelled) means that it is more sharp corners anyway. Turn-in sharply off the power and the Z understeers. However, turn in on the power and easily accessed oversteer is on the menu (with the limited-slip differential playing along). at the slip point, though, it takes skill to balance the chassis (featuring front and rear strut braces) and get the most from the grip offered by the four Potenzas. For optimal track work, the car would ideally need stiffer springs and dampers, plus a reduction in mass. – Cartoday.com
