We're Still Waiting For The Ultimate Electric Hoon Machine

BRD has been promising us an electric supermoto for over three years. We've been patient. We've asked questions. We've sat by while it scored a Tesla exec to sit on its board and got a $4.5 million round of fresh funding. Now it looks like they're finally ready to deliver, but first, it's time for... rebranding? » 10/16/14 6:17pm 10/16/14 6:17pm

​2015 Yamaha YZF-R3 Is Further Proof It's A Good Time To Be A New Rider

If you're just getting into bikes, the smart money has always been buying something used and then working your way up. That's still the case, but there's been a raft of great new entry-level rides in the last year, including the Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Honda's CBR300 (as well as the CB300F).

The monument to motorcycle madness that is the Kawasaki Ninja H2R sounds absolutely as pants-pissingly ferocious as you'd think a 300 horsepower supercharged track monster would. This quick recording probably doesn't do the real deal justice, but it's pretty damn inspiring. » 10/16/14 2:44pm 10/16/14 2:44pm

Oh My Gosh, Nintendo Gave Link A Motorcycle

If Zelda making its first appearance in Mario Kart wasn't exciting enough, Nintendo sweetened the deal today.

​Who Really Made the Chopper From Easy Rider?

This Saturday the last Easy Rider chopper will go up for auction, and as the lone survivor, it's expected to fetch something north of $1 million.

There's no better way to see the world than from two wheels. But, the Adventure Motorcycles made to do just that are so big and heavy, riding them off the road becomes its own, separate and difficult-to-master skill. Here's how to do it. » 10/09/14 12:48pm 10/09/14 12:48pm

​Is Honda Dominating MotoGP With Cylinder Deactivation?

Every factory team is dealing with the 20-liter fuel limit imposed on bikes racing in MotoGP. We haven't seen anyone run out this season – save maybe Ducati's Cal Crutchlow at Qatar – which begs the question: how? If four-time 500cc racer Randy Mamola is to be believed, it's because the crew at Repsol Honda is using… » 10/07/14 3:26pm 10/07/14 3:26pm

​Nothing Prepares You To Take A Bird To The Face On A 300-HP Superbike

On an average ride you can expect to get pelted with bugs and lit cigarettes and the occasional McDonald's wrapper. But testing a supercharged, 300-horsepower superbike brings its own risks, including taking a bird to the head at over 200 mph. [Warning: A bit gory.] » 10/06/14 6:34pm 10/06/14 6:34pm

The Bosozoku Are Japan's Disappearing Rebels Without A Cause

For those who have never actually been to Japan, the idea that Japan's generally regimented, polite, and clean society could have a completely out of control and dangerous youth subculture is hard to believe. Residents of Japan know better. Enter: bosozoku. Or rather exit, as bosozoku are in steep decline. » 10/04/14 2:57pm 10/04/14 2:57pm
