The 2020 Ducati Streetfighter V4 Is a Naked but Not Raw Panigale

While a beginning track racer might not take full advantage of the Panigale V4’s electronics, there’s a reason Ducati’s super sportbike has been compared to Ferraris. The Italian marque has already expanded its platform’s appeal with the two-cylinder Panigale V2. Now, it’s removed unnecessary accouterments to create the Ducati Streetfighter V4 naked bike. And in …

The 2021 BMW M 1000 RR Is the M3 of Motorcycles

While cars may be BMW’s main focus today, after switching over from planes, the German marque started with motorcycles first. But while BMW Motorrad offers well-reviewed adventure bikes, touring bikes, and even a new cruiser, it’s still separate from the automotive business. As such, the motorcycles don’t really share anything with the cars. However, that’s …

The Ducati SuperSport: From Classic Racer To Modern Sport Touring Bike

Even before the Desmosedici RR came out, many of Ducati’s bikes had origins in racing. It’s partially why the Italian brand is called ‘the Ferrari of motorcycles.’ And it continues to this day. The Scrambler, for example, isn’t just about looks—it can actually go off-road. Some models, though, have evolved somewhat from their origins. Such …

The Next-Gen Ducati Monster May Be Ditching Something Iconic

The Ducati lineup includes many exciting and desirable motorcycles. The Panigale, whether in V4 or V2 form, has plenty of performance and electronic aids. And the Ducati Scrambler is a genuine off-roader and a Mint 400 winner. Then there are the brand’s past models, like the still-stylish 916. However, a significant portion of the company’s …

A 15-Year-Old Suzuki GSX-R1000 Can Keep up With a Ducati Panigale V4

While its motorcycles aren’t the most expensive, Ducati’s bikes are arguably some of the most desirable. Especially its Panigale line of sportbikes. The V2 model is quick in its own right and keeps the manufacturer’s L-twin tradition alive. But if you want the closest thing to a commuter-friendly Desmosedici RR, you’ll need the Ducati Panigale …

The Ducati Desmosedici RR Was a Road-Legal MotoGP Race Bike

Aston Martin and Brough Superior’s upcoming superbike’s price tag isn’t the only thing that will make the motorcycle exclusive. It’s a track-only bike, so it doesn’t have to conform to any emissions or other regulations. And as the Ferrari F50 demonstrated, turning a racing machine into a road vehicle isn’t exactly easy. But as Ducati …

Ducati Panigale VS Honda Fireblade

The Ducati Panigale and the iconic Honda Fireblade are each some of the fastest race-inspired bikes in production. The 2021 Fireblade (which should hit showrooms this fall) is one of the most exciting bikes on today’s market and a pretty parallel competitor with the popular Ducati Panigale. But is there one of these motorcycles that …

Why Are Ducati Motorcycles so Expensive?

In an article about Ducati motorcycles on The Things, the difference between other bike prices and Ducati prices is posed as being the same as the difference between “I like it” and “I love it.” If you are willing to pay more for an Italian machine, you’ll end up with something fast built for long …
Ducati Scrambler Desert Sleds racing in the Mint 400

The Ducati Scrambler Is the Mint 400’s First Hooligan Winner

Quite a few so-called scrambler motorcycles have the style, but not a lot of off-road substance. The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled, though, isn’t one of them. And just like Triumph did with its Scrambler, the Italian company has shown that through racing. In fact, in this year’s Mint 400, a Ducati Scrambler won its inaugural …

2020 Motorcycles: The Leading Liter Bike

When it comes to 2020 motorcycles, liter bikes are the most exciting. Each of these superbikes boasts a powerful 1 liter-displacing engine and trickle-down race technology. But we already know all of these sportbikes are fast. Which ones are the fastest and baddest of all? Here are the leading liter bikes of 2020. Everyone has …
Red 2020 Ducati Panigale V2 against a black background

Even Without the V4, the Ducati Panigale V2 Is Plenty Fast

Before the Panigale V4, Ducati’s sportiest bikes all used the Italian brand’s 90° V-twin, aka ‘L-twin,’ engine. And, to be fair, it’s not like the company abandoned that engine completely. The rest of its lineup, from the Scrambler to the Diavel cruiser, all use L-twin engines. And you can still get a Panigale with it. …
Red 1997 Ducati 916S with golden wheels

Why the Ducati 916 Is Still a Motorcycle Icon

Ducati has often been called the Ferrari of motorcycles, and not just because both companies are Italian. Ducati’s bikes are genuinely shaped by motorsports technology. Even its touring bikes have a performance focus. And the Scrambler Desert Sled is about more than just looks. The bikemaker has also previewed trends. For example, the Sport 1000 …
K-Speed Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 custom scrambler

Is Royal Enfield Going to Take on the Triumph Scrambler?

Although not quite as good off-road as dual sports, scramblers’ lighter weight and smaller size make them nimbler than adventure bikes. And some, particularly the Triumph Scrambler, can genuinely venture beyond the pavement. For Triumph, the Scrambler is part of neo-classic bike lineup which includes the Thruxton café racer and Bonneville standard. However, there’s another …
2020 Triumph Thruxton RS

The Fastest New Modern Café Racer Motorcycles

There’s a whole host of neo-classic motorcycles available today. Customers can choose from scramblers, bobbers, cruisers, a modern Honda Cub, and hand-built carbureted models based on 50s British bikes. Arguably, though, what kick-started this trend was the rise in café racers, previewed by the Ducati Sport 1000. Even Harley-Davidson is working on such a bike. …
2007 Ducati Sport Classic 1000 Biposto

The Ducati Sport 1000 Is a Retro Bike You Should’ve Bought New

Retro motorcycles are very ‘in’ right now. Triumph, Honda, Royal Enfield, and Moto Guzzi all make bikes that echo their classic forebearers, but with less oil leakage. Ural makes a sidecar-equipped bike that can take part in WWII re-enactments. And Honda’s even bringing back a beloved compact trail bike. But, although Ducati’s Scrambler is arguably …
2020 Triumph Scrambler 1200 XC

Which Scrambler Motorcycles Can Actually Go Off-Road?

Going off-road doesn’t mean you always need a specialized machine, especially when it comes to motorcycles. In addition to dirt and dual sport bikes, people have taken Indian cruisers and Vespa scooters off the beaten path. This type of off-road modification was started decades ago with the first scrambler motorcycles. And today, as with other …
Electric Jeep mountain bike

The First Electric Jeep Only Has a 40-Mile Range

Even before it unveiled the plug-in hybrid Wrangler, Jeep was already planning on going electric. Naturally, we assumed the first electric Jeep would be a car or SUV. However, modern mobility doesn’t only involve cars. And, as Fox has proven with its shocks, automotive off-road tech also works with other forms of transportation. Although electric …
