BMW Motorrad recently released an overview of the updates to its 2015 lineup. The first few entries aren’t all that interesting with the F 700 GS, F 800 GS, F 800 GS Adventure, and F 800 GT all getting nothing more than new paint colors. Starting with the R 1200 GS, though, things get a […]

The RX promises to be perhaps the first truly competitive, all-American sportbike. Since its debut the RX has garnered plenty of praise in the press and it certainly looks to be living […]

With a sound that is decidedly un-potato-potato-like, Harley-Davidson has surprised the motorcycle world and legions of faithful with the first electric motorcycle by a major manufacturer.* Well, it’s not quite a production motorcycle yet, it’s more of a prototype or trial balloon; what Harley-Davidson is trying to do here is gauge whether or not the […]

Yamaha Announces FZ-07

Jun 13, 2014 View Comments by

We were excited about Yamaha’s affordable and sporty new naked bike, the FZ-09, when it was announced last summer. With a powerful new inline triple and a MSRP under $8k, the FZ was a compelling bargain. But Yamaha isn’t stopping there. The Japanese company has recently announced the FZ-07, the 09’s little brother. A 689cc […]

Well, we don’t have hoverboards yet, but soon we’ll have another new Honda (a small consolation).

2015 Yamaha SR400

Mar 16, 2014 View Comments by

Don’t let the model year on the “newest” Yamaha fool you; there’s nothing modern about this motorcycle. Power comes from a 399cc air-cooled single cylinder engine that requires a kick to get it going. That’s right, there’s no electric start at all (though it is fuel injected). With a fully fuelled weight of only 384 […]

Are you a serious rider with a soft spot for that classic bobber style? If so, you’re the target market for Victory’s newest model, the 2015 Gunner.
