Where to start?! The funniest thing is the amount of questions I asked myself prior to discovering the 2017 KTM EXC line up: Did something change? How about the grip? What’s the difference between the 2016 and 2017 Enduro range? Etc etc… To be explicitly clear enough and to my surprise: The All New KTM EXC line up is a new KTM Enduro World in itself. Simply, you have to go deep in their Enduro DNA, specs and technical body so you could understand how beautiful these new beasts are. To...

MV Agusta/Mercedes AMG PartnershipDate :
February 06, 2016
"MV Agusta is gasping for more fresh air, and that might come from an agreement with Mercedes AMG that would create floorspace in every Mercedes AMG dealership for MV Agusta motorcycles. These will be prestigious “showrooms” within the 127 AMG dealerships around the world, and represent a commitment to closer ties between MV and AMG in terms of marketing coordination. But there is a catch: The AMG dealerships will not actually sell MV Agusta bikes, but will only put them on display under...
Motorcycle so silent, you wont even know it's on!Date :
July 21, 2015
Let’s first get this definition straight: The act of sneaking up on someone means approaching them quietly and catching them off guard. Now that we’ve got this covered, it is police duty to approach criminals as quietly and discreetly as possible because that maximizes the chances of actually catching the bad guys red-handed. But how can you possibly do that when you’ve got your motorcycles engine roaring behind you like there’s no tomorrow? LAPD is apparently embracing silent and...
Human Skin Helmet: Yay or Nay?Date :
June 25, 2015
Digital designer Jyo John Mullor designed helmets looking like actual human heads! The 10 years experienced graphic designer based in Dubai presented several concepts of this creepy helmet, but there are no signs of production for now. (Thank God?) Muller has worked with several automotive dealerships such as Hyundai and Nissan and is introducing now the new idea of “skin” helmets. Yay or Nay?!

“No one called to tell you that your bike isn’t ready yet?” The service manager said, looking apologetic. I knew I should have called before making the two-mile walk to pick up my 2013 BMW R1200GS Adventure from the shop. “We had to order a part and we’ll have it ready tomorrow.” He could see my disappointment. “I tell you what, you can take my GS if you want, I have another bike I can ride home, or… You can ride the Rune. ” Without hesitating, I went for the Rune. I’d seen the 2004...
2014 KTM 690 Enduro R â€“ 1st RideDate :
November 14, 2014
If you haven’t been hiding in a cave for the past five years, you couldn’t have missed the fact that ADV bikes are grabbing headlines. And as this segment sorts itself out, it seems that most manufacturers are biasing the machines’ capabilities more toward asphalt than dirt. Of course, KTM's own line of Adventure motorcycles have set the bar for well-balanced machines with the 950, 990, and 1190 models. But for those who want to explore more demanding terrain without riding a 450cc enduro,...
Bargain Blasters: Honda CBR650FDate :
November 12, 2014
Honda’s CBR650F offers a more practical and affordable four-cylinder middleweight sportbike alternative to today’s track-focused 600cc supersports. The 650F wraps race-inspired styling around a far more relaxed riding position than that of a contemporary supersport, and its DOHC liquid-cooled inline-four engine is tuned for very linear, easy-to-manage power delivery as well. Best of all, this all-new model carries an $8,499 MSRP (an ABS model sells for $500 more), which is about three grand...
