After yesterday's relatively sober and serious look at Erik Buell's next Great American Sportsbike, it's time to have a little fun. Here's our video review of the EBR 1190RX.  Read More

The all-American sportsbike is back, and this time Erik Buell doesn't have a heritage cruiser company looking over his shoulder telling him how to build it. The 1190RX is the first mass-production sportsbike out of the new EBR factory in Wisconsin, a 185-horsepower, torque-stompin', slightly quirky racer with its eyes firmly focused on World Superbike contention. But does that equate to a good road bike? We spent a couple of weeks with the RX to find out.  Read More

Polaris touts the cornering prowess of the Slingshot

Take your favorite three-wheeler from childhood, flip it around, give it the power and handling of a motorcycle with the comfort and stability of a car, and the look of something out of a futuristic comic book. The result is the brand new Polaris Slingshot.  Read More

CycleAT is designed for use on both motorcycles and bicycles

Although tire pressure monitoring systems are becoming increasingly common on four-wheeled vehicles, they're still quite the rarity on two-wheelers. RDV Labs, however, wants to change that. The San Francisco-based startup's CycleAT system is designed to continuously monitor the air pressure in motorcycle and bicycle tires, relaying that information to the rider's smartphone in real time.  Read More

Sena's 20S - with dual Bluetooth chips, audio multitasking is now on the menu.

The Sena 20S sets a new standard in motorcycle Bluetooth communications with its giant 2-kilometre range, dual Bluetooth chips for true audio multitasking and strong voice control features. Here's our video review, as well as a demonstration of this jigger's outstanding wind noise reduction ability – it can clearly relay a softly spoken voice even in an open helmet at freeway speeds.  Read More

BMW's HP4 is the first supersports bike to feature cornering ABS

When motorcycle ABS first came out, many riders (including myself) took a dim view of it - until we tried it, and realised just how incredible it was to be able to jam on the brakes fearlessly in the wet and on imperfect surfaces. But you still had to be careful putting the brakes on in a corner. Now, BMW has announced ABS Pro - the first lean angle-sensitive ABS system for a supersports bike, so road riders can brake safely, effectively and extremely quickly while the bike's leaned over.  Read More

Sena's new flagship Bluetooth headset - the 20S

Sena's outstanding Bluetooth headset range has a new flagship – the 20S. Now touting a giant 2-kilometre (1.25 mile) intercom range, the 20S also features voice control, 8-way conferencing and dual Bluetooth chips for audio multitasking, so you can keep your music playing and just duck the volume when your riding partner talks to you. We were big fans of the previous model, the SMH10, and the 20S is an incremental improvement in just about every way.  Read More

The Ducati 1199 Panigale looks like a bucket of slop with its clothes off

The Ducati 1199 Panigale is one of the hottest superbikes on the planet. It's also the first to come out with a gutsy, "frameless" design that, frankly, looks very odd when you pull its fairings off. But an engine like that deserves the love and attention of custom bike builders. So we ask the question: is it possible to make the Panigale look good as a naked streetfighter? Here's eight different attempts from designers around the world.  Read More

The 2015 Energica Ego electric superbike

With major manufacturers still dragging their feet on electric performance bikes, it's up to smaller, independent factories to forge the future of battery-powered motorcycles. Italy's Energica has just announced the 2015 revision of its Ego street superbike. At 100 kW (134 horsepower), 195 Nm (143.8 lb.ft) and 11.7 kWh of battery on board, it'll be a road rocketship capable of an emission-free 240 km/h (149 mph) top speed ... and it looks the part of an exotic Italian sportsbike, too.  Read More

No compromises - the EBR 1190SX is the definition of a streetfighter: a superbike with its...

Full specifications, pricing and photos have arrived for Erik Buell's newest streetbike – the EBR 1190SX streetfighter. And if, like many people, you're sick of hearing the phrase "detuned for more midrange," you'll be happy to know that the 1190SX is basically the full 185-horsepower 1190RX superbike experience, with the plastics off and a higher handlebar. Boy, will this thing be a handful.  Read More
