Will Harley-Davidson Actually Build These Awesome New Bikes?

Harley-Davidson hasn’t had a good 2020 so far. The departure of its CEO had elements of boardroom drama, and the COVID-19 outbreak has stifled production. In addition, the much-anticipated LiveWire electric motorcycle hasn’t really taken off. And bikes like the $41,000 CVO Road-Glide aren’t exactly affordable. However, recently-uncovered documents hint at more Harley-Davidson bikes in …

The Rugged 2WD Rokon Trail-Breaker Can Tow 2000 LBS

Choosing an off-road motorcycle is about balancing pavement manners with dirt performance. The Triumph Scrambler and modified Indian Scout Sixty can venture off-pavement, but they’re heavier and more expensive. Dual sports can freely transition between gravel and asphalt, but their designs skew more towards dirt bikes than street ones. And the Ural’s 2WD and old-school …

Can You Ride a Classic Motorcycle Daily?

It’s not just classic trucks and SUVs that are gaining popularity. Classic motorcycles are also on the rise, especially café racers, scramblers, and bobbers. And classic bikes like the humble Vespa scooter can sometimes venture far outside their comfort zone. But does that mean you could, or should, use a classic motorcycle as a daily …

An Indian Scout Sixty Can Tackle Jungles and Mountains

Cruisers aren’t generally built for off-roading. For that, riders usually turn to dual sports or adventure-touring bikes, which have skid plates, chunky tires, and more suspension travel. But, just because the Porsche 911, Mazda Miata, and Vespa scooter weren’t designed for off-roading, doesn’t mean people haven’t modified them for it. The same thing goes for …

Brough Superior: The Rolls-Royce of Motorcycles

Even today’s biggest names in motorcycling started small. Harley-Davidson made its reputation on simple, reliable machines for everyday people. Ducati’s first motorcycle was little more than a bicycle with a tiny engine. In the early days of the automobile, motorcycles represented an affordable way of getting around. But early bikes’ low weight meant that even …

Is This Harley Davidson CVO Really Worth $41,000?

Harley Davidson makes some very fast cruisers and touring bikes, just about as far from the Honda Grom as someone can get. The fastest ones are the Harley Davidson CVO motorcycles, essentially factory-custom, limited-production machines. Unfortunately, that speed doesn’t come cheap. The latest Harley Davidson CVO Road Glide costs just under $41,000—never mind bikes, there …

Why Is the Tiny Honda Grom so Popular?

Honda makes some incredibly quick motorcycles, on- and off-road. You can even buy a fairly-close reproduction of the bike that helped an American win Paris-Dakar for the first time. But the company is arguably better known for its smaller, more fuel-efficient and affordable bikes. And one bike, in particular, has been a surprising sales success: …

Fastest Dual Sport Motorcycles

Dirt bikes can be a great introduction to motorcycling. They’re easy to repair, and not quick enough to really get you into trouble (apart from the racing versions). But, they’re generally not street-legal, which means you’ll have to haul them to a trail or course. Some touring bikes can go off-road, but they’re really more …

Fastest Touring Motorcycles by 0-60 Time

Motorcycles are ridden every from dirt trails to paved roads. For the latter, standards and cruisers tend to be popular choices. Cruisers in particular offer an attractive combination of relaxed riding with casual speed. Quite a few cruisers can actually out-accelerate some high-end sports cars.

What Makes Ducati Motorcycles so Desirable?

Chasing racing success and improved performance helps motorcycles, too. Harley-Davidson made great waves with its flat tracker bikes. Honda’s bikes have won the Paris-Dakar 6 times now, and its CB750 was the first to be called a ‘superbike.’ But there’s one brand that’s perhaps the most-closely tied to racing: Ducati. Over the years, the Italian …

Supercapacitors May Revolutionize the Electric Truck, but Are They Ready for Production?

Electric pickup trucks like the Telsa Cybertruck, Bollinger B2, and Rivian R1T are just around the corner. But while they may be almost production-ready, potential buyers may hesitate over range and recharge time. Especially when towing gets involved. Hydrogen technology could help, but it comes with its own problems. However, there may be a different …
