The 80s are back: Luka Cimolini’s BMW R100 RS

THE 80S ARE BACK: LUKA CIMOLINI’S BMW R100 RS
Full Size
The BMW R100 RS made waves when it first launched. Sports tourers were a new concept, and the RS topped the charts with its wind tunnel-tested fairing.

These days, you’re more likely find an RS fairing in a plastic bin than on the streets. While it had a contemporary—almost futuristic—look back in the day, it’s the first thing that most builders rip off their old boxers.

First Ride: 2017 Kawasaki Z1000SX

  • By cannonball

MCN Senior Road Tester Adam ‘Chad’ Child will be riding Kawasaki’s 2017 upgraded Z1000SX in the south of France tomorrow, and will be sharing live updates throughout the day.

The new bike was unveiled to the public at the Intermot show in early October, and receives Euro4 upgrades, tweaks to the styling and improvements to its touring capabilities for 2017.  The SX gets upgraded electronics with the addition of an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), which means for the first time the touring SX comes with Cornering ABS and lean angle sensitive traction control, instead of the standard traction control system previously used.

All new Triumph Bonneville Launch – Pipeburn.com

  • By cannonball

It’s safe to say this is the biggest launch in Triumph’s illustrious 100 year history. Never before has this British born marque ever released so many new motorcycles on one day. It’s been a four-year project and from the looks of these bikes, they have spent that time getting the detail and performance just right. The bikes have been cloaked in more secrecy than a plot from a spy film – which is fitting, as the new Bond film ‘Spectre’ was also launched this week in London. Shaken and stirred? We were…
