The one liter V-twins from Brough Superior and Vincent are the world's two most sought-after motorcycles – that's a fact. Now two perfect examples will cross the block on the same day. The Alpine Grand Sports Brough will most likely become one of the top ten most expensive motorcycles.  Read More

Motorcycle lane splitting: faster and safer for riders, plus it makes the journey quicker ...

Recent research has confirmed what many motorcycle riders have known for years. "Lane splitting" – or riding in between lanes of traffic – obviously saves riders a lot of time, but it's also considerably safer than sitting in traffic and acting like a car, as long as it’s done within certain guidelines, and contrary to what many drivers think, it actually speeds up traffic for everyone else on the road. Riders, please pass this information on to the drivers in your lives.  Read More

Arch Motorcycle Company's KRGT-1 - available in bare billet or black

You hear plenty of stories about what a stand-up guy Keanu Reeves is when the cameras aren't rolling – and now it makes sense. Turns out he's a madly passionate motorcyclist, which in my books makes him a superior human being. Reeves isn't short of a dollar, so together with chopper whiz Gard Hollinger he's built the bike of his dreams, and started a company manufacturing them. Arch Motorcycle Company has just released its first bike, the KRGT-1, a US$78,000 chopper-inspired sports naked with a giant 2-litre S&S v-twin engine and a body that's basically all hewn from billet aluminum. No word on whether it explodes if you go less than 50 miles an hour, best keep the throttle open just to be safe.  Read More

After a photo leak in the lead-up to November's EICMA motorcycle show, MV Agusta has released photos and full details on the very tasty Brutale 800 RR and the even more delectable Dragster 800 RR. Far from being just a facelift, both models feature significant performance and electronic upgrades – but let's be honest here, this story's all about gorgeous photos of beautiful Italian motorcycles. Enjoy!  Read More

Yamaha's MT-09 (or FZ-09 in the USA) is hysterical fun on the road (Photo: Noel McKeegan)

It's taken me about nine years, but I finally understand what Yamaha's going on about with its "torque sports" MT range. After spending a couple of weeks with the MT-09 (or FZ-09 as it's known in America), I'm convinced. Not only is Yamaha on the right track, but the MT-09 is the kind of machine that could cause a mini-revolution in the motorcycle market. Lightweight, super cheap and blessed with one of the best new engines we've seen in years, the MT is barrel-of-monkeys level fun in just about any real-world riding context. And boy did we have fun putting this video together!  Read More

The Harley Panhead Chopper ridden by Peter Fonda in the 1969 "road movie" Easy Rider sold today for US$1.35 million ($1.62 million including auction fees), more than doubling the price of the previous most expensive motorcycle ever sold at auction (a 1910 Winchester). "Captain America" will now sit atop our Top 100 most expensive motorcycle list, and we're predicting that it will be there for quite some time.  Read More

The recent discovery that a motorcycle made by a gun manufacturer has held the outright world record for the most expensive motorcycle ever sold at auction for the last 12 months raises some interesting contrasts between the different genres in the collectibles market. The bike has an instantly recognizable name, but it’s a name that even the most learned of motorcycle historians would struggle to associate with a motorcycle. As reported in the The Star newspaper of DaKalb County, Indiana, on Saturday evening, August 31, 2013, a 1910 Winchester motorcycle sold at Worldwide Auctions for US$580,000. Though the story has been in plain view for more than 12 months, the world has remained oblivious until now.  Read More
