New device aims to put brake lights on motorcyclists’ heads

  • By cannonball

A new startup from California is campaigning for a smart motorcycle brake light that can be fitted to any helmet without requiring installation on the bike. The Brake Free works autonomously, alerting motorists to deceleration, even if the brakes haven’t actually been applied.

New Wave of Ducati Divestiture Talks Emerge

  • By cannonball

We have been here before, with financial news outlets discussing the possibility of Volkswagen divesting Ducati Motor Holding from its collection of companies. Let’s be clear, this talk about talk…not talk about action

.
The idea of VW selling Ducati isn’t new. We first reported on this rumor back in September 2015 – when VW was found fudging around with its diesel-powered cars. Many thought the ramifications of Dieselgate would mean a bevy of brands being unload by the German car company.

 

Nothing came of that.

 

Then last year, around June 2016, more talk of Ducati’s divestiture came to the forefront. The rumors were so strong, that Audi AG (the direct owner of Ducati) had to publicly state that the Italian motorcycle brand wasn’t for sale.

  • By cannonball

Moto3 rider Nakarin Atiratphuvapat shocked onlookers at the Grand Prix of the Americas by somehow managing to avoid crashing out of his race on Sunday despite being unseated.

After struggling to negotiate a a fast downhill kink before a downhill straight, Atiratphuvapat managed to hold on alongside his bike during the support race at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.

The sensational save on Turn 9 from the Thai left BT Sport commentators gobsmacked with the one saying: ‘Chip his name is, and you’ve got to say, that was a hell of a chip! That was pure Randy Mamola.’

Officine Rossopuro Moto Guzzi T3 California

  • By cannonball

Filippo Barbacane started Officine Rossopuro in 1998 as a small shop that sold custom motorcycles, as well as parts and apparel. Based out of Abruzzo in the mountainous region of East-Central Italy, the little shop quickly made a name for itself in Italy and around Europe, and today it’s recognised as one of the first sparks of what would become the modern custom motorcycle movement.

2017 BMW R nineT Racer Review – First Ride

  • By cannonball

One could take two approaches to understanding what BMW has done to the R nineT to give us the 2017 BMW R nineT Racer. The glass half-empty crowd will talk about the components that fell away to help keep the Racer’s price down. The glass half-full perspective would stress the cool new additions to the platform that resulted in the Racer.

What’s the Best Sport-Touring Motorcycle of 2017?

  • By cannonball

Just as there are a million ways to skin a cat, there are a million ways to go sport-touring, too. Some folks prefer the full-on Gold Wing style of touring, while others sway the other direction, slapping on a backpack filled only with the bare essentials as they dart off aboard their sportbike. Throw in muscle cruisers and adventure bikes with integrated or aftermarket luggage, and the options for burning miles and scraping peg feelers are very wide.

The 2017 BMW HP4 RACE Is The Bike Carbon Fiber Dreams Are Made Of

  • By cannonball

Sportbikes are meant for pushing boundaries, and BMW Motorrad is looking to remind you of that with its new HP4 RACE. Faster, lighter, and exceedingly more expensive than any base-model S1000RR, this limited production racebike will hit the performance-hungry enthusiasts right where it counts, and to 750 willing buyers, right in the wallet, too.

You probably recognize the HP4 RACE name. That’s because BMW already pulled the cover off one at the 2016 EICMA show. If you want to make a splash, you do it there—in Italy, at EICMA, regardless of whether or not the details are finalized. At the time, they weren’t. “It was initially left open as to how far the advanced prototype reflected what the final motorcycle would look like,” BMW said.
