Done and Dusted: Nailing the vintage scrambler vibe

  • By cannonball

These days, any mention of a ‘scrambler’ usually sparks a fervent debate about what exactly the name means. But here’s something we can all agree on: vintage-style scramblers are seriously cool.

This is the Motorcycle You Need to Escape the Apocalypse

  • By cannonball

The sky burned and the oceans turned black. Now it’s overcast almost every day. I survived, probably because I was wearing an armadillo vest that protected me from all harm. Plus, I had a mohawk on my helmet, which killed all of the brain cells that control common sense but left me with 20/15 vision.
And all I need is a motorcycle. Something faster than a zombie can run (just in case) and loud enough to scare away the mutant mackerel that are making their way up from the toxic beaches and into the ruins of the city. I need knobby tires for rubble, lots of fuel, and preferably no fenders in case I meet a fair maiden who has also survived—I don’t want her to think I’m a dweeb.

Harley-Davidson’s Newest Rival Is an Old Brand

  • By cannonball

Through its 114-year history, Harley-Davidson has taken on numerous contenders intent on dethroning it as the dominant American motorcycle maker. So far, it has a perfect record.

But Harley now faces perhaps its most trying challenge in decades. Polaris, an established American company with manufacturing know-how and a revered motorcycle brand in Indian, is quickly making big strides.

Classified Moto Frank Motorcycle

  • By cannonball

The bike started as a 2007 Triumph Speed Triple, but then builders added a pudgy rear ATV tire, a bespoke upholstered saddle that sits on raw Chromoly rails, and a gas tank that’s glassed and covered with hand-written documentation of the conversion.

Company Claims First 3D-Printed Motorcycle | RideApart

  • By cannonball

APWorks, a subsidiary of Airbus, says it has produced the first 3D-printed motorcycle chassis from aluminum powder. The prototype, know as Light Rider, has an exoskeletal frame that carries a 6kW electric motor producing up to 130 Nm (95.8 ft-lb) of torque, and weighs just 38 kg (84 lbs). That’s some power-to-weight ratio.

Touring Africa By Motorcycle: Learning the Basics

  • By cannonball

I arrived in San Sebastian with a strange feeling in my gut; I didn’t know whether it was fear or anxiety to begin the journey. It’s been six months since I left my previous bike in Mexico, after riding the Americas. Even longer since I used any tools. I couldn’t stop wondering if I will manage myself during the trip. I always say that I know little of mechanics and that sincerity is what allows me to ask questions until I settle my doubts. Fortunately, mechanics and the grease that accumulates under the nails after cleaning the chain do not understand about genres.

  • By cannonball

Not content with already having the “fastest production electric bike” title, Lightning Motorcycles are planning on pushing the boundaries even further and pursue a new record. You see, the good folk at Lightning Motorcycles have a new electric Hyperbike, but at the moment it’s only being referred to as the LS-2?? RR – which doesn’t exactly roll off of the tongue.

Top 5 Harley-Davidson Sportster Custom Motorcycles

  • By cannonball

The Harley-Davidson Sportster seems like it’s one of the most ubiquitous bikes on the road. Over six decades, its image has been imprinted on the hearts and minds of gearheads across the globe and the legacy of its American heritage has entered mainstream consciousness. Yet when custom builders see it as an inchoate form and mold it into something completely foreign, they subvert tradition and intention, and showcase undaunted originality of craft and vision. Without going too far in the realm of un-usability, these builds recast the Sportster as, well, sportsters.
