Triumph Daytona 675 scoops Supertest and Masterbike awards again!

May 12, 2007 Triumph's Daytona 675 has continued its insatiable award-winning appetite with victory in both the Supertest and Masterbike multi-bike comparison tests for the second year running. Both of the independent tests, held on Spanish racetracks, saw the Daytona 675 reign supreme despite being unchanged since its launch in 2006, a true testament to the bike's inherent qualities.  Read More

Pfeiffer in Red Square

May 7, 2007 We’re obviously huge fans of stunt rider Chris Pfeiffer, so excuse us for being a bit indulgent and running these amazing pics. No Adobe Photoshop is involved whatsoever – that’s Chris doing his thing on his F 800 stunt bike in Moscow's Red Square. "Moscow is an amazing place and I had been doing some stunt shows for BMW Motorrad over there as well as some 'guerrilla' activity with Red Bull," said Chris. "I knew it would be quite difficult to get these pictures but luckily for me one of the guys from BMW had a contact with the local police - who all ride BMW bikes - and he had seen one of my shows, so we were able to get permission to make these pictures close to the Basilica with the distinctive onion domes on the Red Square!" People have been shot for less, and not all that long ago either!  Read More

Brough Superior trademarks going to auction

May 4, 2007 Could another gleaming gem of motorcycling history be revived? The rights to the legendary Brough Superior brand will go to auction this weekend at the Legend of the Motorcycle Concours d'Elegance in California. After being out of production since the end of the second world war, the buyer would have a chance to resurrect the original luxury motorcycle; the Rolls-Royce of two wheels and the favoured steed of Lawrence of Arabia.  Read More

Carl Fogarty, who will run the factory-supported Mv Agusta team in the 2008 World Superbik...

May 3, 2007 It's taken more than 30 years, but exclusive italian motorcycle marque MV Agusta has finally announced its intention to return to top-level racing in the World Superbike Championship in 2008, providing factory support to Carl Fogarty's WSBK team. Team Foggy Racing will be given some very desirable tackle as they take on the world's best superbike teams, but the job won't be easy - and it comes with some very weighty expectations.  Read More

BMW's new Enduro Sport prototype

May 2, 2007 BMW whipped the covers off its new 450cc enduro prototype on the starting line of a World Enduro Championship race in Puerto Lumbreras, Spain last weekend. It's BMW's first serious enduro contender - the brand's GS twin-cylinder bikes and recent 650 singles have all been more adventure-sport oriented than built for serious enduro racing. Still, the new bike leapt out of the blocks, scoring championship points in both races and looking like a genuine contender. Clearly BMW is set to invade the lucrative serious off-road segment which has helped to build its Austrian neighbour KTM into Europe's second largest motorcycle manufacturer.  Read More

The first images of the 2008 Indian Chief will be released on Saturday.

May 1, 2007 America's Indian motorcycle is back... Again, and this time with a taste for fine bubbly. In what could be viewed as an unfortunate pairing, Moet & Chandon have teamed up with the brand to produce a preview model of the much-anticipated 2008 Indian Chief, complete with a built-in champagne cooler compartment (!) and a disclaimer against cruising under the influence.  Read More

Harley meets Ducati - the Roehr American superbike takes shape

April 14, 2007 The Harley-Davidson Revolution Engine Erik Buell dismissed as too large and heavy for a sportsbike may get its chance to fly after all. Roehr is seeking investors to capitalise its first production run of its flag-waving American RV1000 sportsbike.  Read More

350 bhp battery-powered Killacycle smashes 1/4 mile records for electric vehicles

April 9, 2007 Electric engines have a very unsexy image; environmentally friendly hybrids and plug-in vehicles couldn't be further from the minds of most high performance motorsport fans. The battery-powered Killacycle, however, is raising eyebrows at the dragstrip after smashing the electric vehicle quarter-mile speed record with a very respectable 8.168 seconds @ 155.78mph earlier this week. Video here.  Read More

Victory's Vision of the next all-American cruiser

April 5, 2007 "We're not rewriting American history, we're writing its future," reads Victory's website preview of its 2008 Vision cruisers. Perhaps, although the styling seems to blend the front end of a big touring Beemer with the rear of a 1930s gangster-style Cadillac. There's no denying the bike is a bold statement - but will cruiser fans, notorious for their conservative styling tastes, share Victory's enthusiasm? Loz Blain looks at a new and important motorcycle.  Read More

BMW Motorrad ready to return to Le Mans

April 3, 2007 BMW has already shown in its short time as a Formula One constructor that it has the wherewithal to play at the ultimate level and news this week that it will begin competing in motorcycle endurance racing is hence of great significance. On 21st April 2007, the legendary "24-heures moto" races off to yet another blinding start, but with one small but significant historic difference: after an absence of 50 years from competitive road racing, a BMW Motorrad factory team will be on the grid.  Read More
