The 1980s Mercedes 240s are appealing cars, with a stout, dependable sort of charm. Have you ever wanted one of those W123s but thought it’s just got one wheel too many? If that’s you, then boy, will you be excited to see this.
The short story is that the 2017 Yamaha FZ-10 is the brand’s biggest street-screamer sport bike, the R1, with a more upright seating position and power delivery dialed toward the low end. The longer story, if I live to tell it, will be how it handles the Tail Of The Dragon. Get your questions in now!
Why is danger so sexy? I don’t know. But its siren song is screaming to me after watching just a few minutes of Rip To Cabo; one of the most visually-enticing off-road motorcycle videos I’ve ever seen. And that’s just the trailer.
It’s impressive to see a guy on a bicycle hustling hard enough to catch and keep up with motorcycles. Even if it is downhill. But it looks like the (motor)biker here didn’t appreciate it. That or he’s just terrible at keeping control of his bike.
Bikers beware– there’s a force on the streets that could or definitely will not destroy you. And it’s wearing a polo shirt tucked into khakis.
The BMW R nineT Scrambler will finally go on sale this fall in Germany, where it starts at $14,466. Hopefully other markets won’t be far behind– the retro on-road/off-road look is so hot right now it hurts.
A Honda driver cut off a motorcyclist. The rider swears at her and warns she’s on video. Then he rolls up to a cop and snitches on her, and they both give pursuit. Just another day in the wild world of helmet cam videos.
The Kawasaki Ninja H2R bowed in 2014 like a nuke in a knife fight. While incredibly, dangerously, unmanageably quick motorcycles make close to 200 horsepower– this Ninja has 300. But would anyone ever be brave enough to try and top it out? Finally, yes.
Throughout my career I have raced on what, until very recently, I had considered some of the most batshit crazy public roads in the world: Mt Panorama. Macau. The Nürburgring.
This motorcyclist learned a painful lesson in not trusting his fellow motorists to secure their cargo properly. Thankfully the biker reportedly wasn’t seriously injured.
Qualifying is all about speed. In racing, that speed sometimes includes just how fast you can get back to the garage and fetch a backup vehicle. That’s why, when MotoGP World Championship rider Marc Marquez went down in Q2 at the Dutch Grand Prix, he saw a scooter with a key in it and took off toward his garage stall.
For anyone who’s ever felt bored by an Formula One race, motorcycle sidecar racing is a happy alternative. As you can see, it isn’t bound by the strict rules of F1 that ban anything on the car not interacting with the air.
You suck at driving. Well, I mean, not you specifically. You are great at driving. And me, I’m also great at driving. But everyone else? Everyone else sucks at driving. This is especially disconcerting for those of us who travel on two wheels, because while automotive safety has been steadily improving for vehicle…
On Monday, June 13th motorcyclist Damian Taylor was knocked off his 1982 Suzuki by an unidentified car, succumbing to blunt force trauma injuries and passing away shortly after. Police were seeking help tracking down the driver involved, and after a few days of searching seem to have done so.
When we’re talking Isle Of Man motorcycling, we throw words around like “fastest,” “scariest.” “Deadliest.” 120 miles per hour through country lanes? You imagine it to be insane, of course. But there’s never been a better way to witness it for yourself than through this 360º race-pace ride footage.
Iconic American motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson has been touting the “LiveWire” electric bike concept around for years. But only recently has the company committed to a timeline on production of anything like it.
For some insane reason, some brilliant mastermind decided to take a 180 horsepower, 400 pound superbike and pit it against a 950 horsepower, 3,500 pound hypercar in the most redneck automotive spectacle ever devised: a tug-of-war.
Somebody decided it’d be cool to cut loose with some Polaris RZR Side-By-Side ATVs and Timbersled snowmobile/dirt bike hybrids. Of course, they were correct.
The Honda Grom created an odd but amusing segment of motorcycling when it was introduced in 2014. Big enough to ride on real roads, small enough to thrash like a borrowed bicycle. Apparently it still has enough fans to stick around, and is getting a few tweaks for the 2017 model year.
