Buell's 1125 sportsbike reborn as the 47 Ronin

Here's a gorgeous project of passion worthy of ten minutes of your time. Colorado's Magpul is a company best known for its firearm magazines and accessories. But when unique American sportsbike brand Buell was closed down by Harley-Davidson in 2009, a team of Magpul designers and engineers snapped up 47 of Buell's finest creations – the 1125 series sportsbikes – at runout prices, and set about production of a very limited run of extremely sexy custom bikes. Keeping the 1125's excellent engine, frame and wheels, which the Ronin team considered to be the chief technical standouts of the Buell bikes, they created a girder-forked, naked beast with a wicked-looking front radiator, some 54 lbs lighter than the originals.

2015 Ducati Scrambler: Just don't call it a "retro bike"

Ducati's "not a retro bike" retro bike has been unveiled at Intermot Cologne. The 2015 Ducati Scrambler is a flat-track inspired all rounder with a high handlebar, a bench seat, a bucket headlight and the 75-horsepower (56 kW), 803cc L-twin engine tweaked from the one in the excellent Monster 796.

Lighter, faster 2015 BMW S1000RR with lean angle readouts and cruise control

BMW has re-worked its class-leading S1000RR superbike in two directions – more performance and more rider-friendly usability. With a 6-horsepower increase to 199 peak ponies (148 kW), and a 4 kg (8.8 lb) weight reduction, performance seems taken care of. Likewise, the road rider has been looked after with speed limiters, lean angle readouts, and the first cruise control system ever fitted to a superbike. It appears we'll need to get another choir in to celebrate. Read More

Kawasaki smashes the superbike class with 300-horsepower, supercharged Ninja H2R

Hype is so common these days, and the more something is hyped, the more we tend to expect to be disappointed. Not in this case. Kawasaki has been teasing its supercharged Ninja H2R for months now, and still, when the covers came off at Intermot Cologne today, every mind in the room exploded into tiny pieces. In a market where manufacturers are creeping towards 200-horsepower sport bikes, the track-only H2R will make a tendon-ripping 300 horsepower – considerably more than a MotoGP bike and enough to put the fear of God into just about any rider.
