  1. Let’s get a couple of things straight before we dive into this ride review. The new 2018 Suzuki GSX-S1000F is not a sport tourer. It is not intended to be a sport tourer. This is, according to Suzuki, a “comfortable sport bike”. As such, the passenger accommodations are just as they appear, uncomfortable for anything other […]
  2. You may recall that wings were banned on MotoGP bikes out of a concern for safety. Presumably, aerodynamic devices would have to involve a smooth arc, with no “bulges” or “pointy ends”. This is what led to the conservative design of the Yamaha fairing described in our earlier article. Of course, as in all racing, […]
  3. If you read MD, you know that the Moto Guzzi brand is near and dear to our hearts. This was true from the first time we started testing Moto Guzzi motorcycles, when they were decidedly unrefined and quirky. After Piaggio purchased Moto Guzzi, new investment resulted in the refinement of many models, including the venerable […]
  4.   Full details, specifications and pricing for Kawasaki’s new 2018 Canadian models, including the Ninja H2 SX sport tourer, Z900RS (including the café version) and Ninja 400 are available on Kawasaki Canada’s web site here. Interesting for any number of reasons, Canadian pricing is perhaps most interesting. The new Ninja 400 starts at $5,799 Canadian, […]
  5. Following the completion of the 2017 series, MotoGP riders stayed at Valencia for a two-day test. In addition to new machinery being tested for the 2018 series, the test saw new riders move up from Moto2 (Franco Morbidelli, Takaaki Nakagami and Xavier Simeon). The test also saw riders moving to new machinery, including Jack Miller […]
  6. Indian’s 1,133cc Scout engine is a gem, which we verified in our test of the Victory Octane (which utilized a version of that engine). An engine that deserves to be in a performance-oriented chassis. Enter the Scout FTR1200 pictured in this article, a custom unveiled by Indian at EICMA last week. It looks very much […]
  7. Race MotoGP fans couldn’t have asked for a more dramatic Gran Premio de la Comunitat Valenciana today and the Movistar Yamaha MotoGP riders were there to pick up the pieces. Valentino Rossi rode a very consistent race to secure fifth position. After a small crash in the morning warm up, Maverick Viñales needed some time […]
  8. Team Suzuki Press Office – November 12. Alex Rins: P4 – +13.567s Andrea Iannone: P6 – +14.516s A brilliant final race of the season gave Team SUZUKI ECSTAR some deserved satisfaction, with Alex Rins reaching fourth place in today’s GP de la Comunitat Valenciana and Andrea Iannone not far behind in sixth. Sunday started with […]
  9. DOUBLE CRASH FOR ESPARGARÓ AND LOWES THE VALENCIA RACE CLOSES OUT A POSITIVE SEASON FOR APRILIA AFTER A YEAR OF GREAT PROGRESS, THE RS-GP PREPARES FOR NEXT CHAMPIONSHIP With a double crash – first Aleix Espargaró in the early stages of the race and then Sam Lowes toward the end – the Valencia race ended, […]
  10. A dramatic final round of the 2017 MotoGP championship was held at the Valencia circuit earlier today, and Marc Marquez (Honda) came away with his fourth MotoGP title after nearly crashing out of the race (more about that later). Marquez ended up with the third step on the podium behind his teammate, and race winner, […]
