  • By cannonball

Despite being based on the same chassis, two motor options, two rear tire widths, and three rear suspension options, the eight new Harley-Davidson Softails all feel and ride very differently. We recently experienced the new platform ourselves, and here’s what we discovered.

Motobot vs. Valentino Rossi – Who is Faster?

  • By cannonball

Two years ago, Yamaha set out on an ambitious adventure: to create a motorcycle riding robot that can ride a motorcycle as fast as one of the greatest motorcycle racers of all time, Valentino Rossi.
Besides being a solid PR stunt, the development of Motobot brings with it some seriously powerful technology and insights into one of motorcycling’s great mysteries: rider dynamics.
With a machine the is capable of replicating human inputs on real-world motorcycles, Yamaha can improve its breed, both on the street, but also on the race track.

Yamaha Gets Weird for the Tokyo Motor Show

  • By cannonball

The Tokyo Motor Show is a popular venue for new ideas from Japanese car and motorcycle builders. While most of those concepts are pretty solid, a good handful are so pants-on-head crazy that you wonder how they ever got off the drawing board. Not wanting to disappoint, Yamaha plans to unveil a couple of real weird machines at the show, and you need to see them to believe them.

The 2018 Aprilia Dorsoduro 900 Has An Identity Crisis

  • By cannonball

Supermotos are an interesting breed of bike. Race versions are little more than 450cc dirt bikes with 17-inch wheels and beefier suspension and brakes. But the riding position and style is attractive to a wider variety of riders, which is why we’ve seen more companies come out with more streetable versions.

Electric balance bikes for kids

  • By cannonball

Balance bikes are an effective way for kids to transition from riding tricycles to a two-wheeler, and can accelerate the process of learning to balance on a moving bike by removing the need to also learn to pedal at the same time. I’ve used them with my younger kids, thereby eliminating the aching back that comes from walking hunched over with one hand on the back of the saddle while they slowly learn the basics of balancing and pedaling at the same time, and I heartily recommend balance bikes as a great first two-wheeler that doesn’t require training wheels to ride. Although it’s easy enough to make your own balance bike by removing the pedals or the cranks from a kids bike, there are plenty of choices on the market for purpose-built balance bikes, including a new option, which looks like it belongs in the ‘just what we needed department,’ at least for non-motorcycling families.

The All-New 2018 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster Is Triumph’s Version Of The Perfect Cruiser

  • By cannonball

What is a custom motorcycle when it isn’t made by a heritage American motorcycle company or a clone of one of those companies’ products? That’s a question that the engineers and product managers of Triumph have pondered long and hard. You can see their unique answer in the new 2018 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster.
That solution is to stick closely to 1950s and ’60s classic British styling, and fit it to the riding position and some of the modifications made by American customizers to post-war British motorcycles more than 50 years ago.
