Aston Martin Brough Superior AMB 001 Motorcycle Right Side

What the heck is going on? Aston Martin teamed up with Brough Superior to make a motorcycle? Harley Davidson is making e-bikes? Time to short some stocks. Read on for a bit more on this craziness. (more…)

lazareth-lm-847-v8-motorcycle

This insanely beautiful brut of a motorcycle is built in the least likely of places – France. No offense to the French but you have to admit this is more US type of nonsense than FR. Either way, it is quite impressive and a work of engineering magic.

Lazareth has been making one-off motorcycles for quite a while, like this V8-powered LM 847 which uses an engine from a Maserati GranTurismo. That means you get a 4.7-liter engine that makes 470 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque – in a motorcycle. The Lazareth LM 847 can get to 90 mph in just a few seconds. Video of this bad boy after the break. (more…)

CSC SG250 San Gabriel Motorcycle Under 2k

What costs half as much as a Honda Monkey, is bigger, more capable, and you can get delivered to your house in about a week? The CSC SG250 San Gabriel ($1,995).

While I try to avoid buying things made in China (not easy, and I certainly can’t do it for everything) this bike has some pretty fair reviews online. Sure, it has rear drum brakes, tiny front disc brakes, and front shocks that look like they came off of a bicycle. But that isn’t the point with this bike, at least not in my opinion. If you want a fun little commuter bike (assuming you aren’t on the freeway much, or at all), the CSC SG250 San Gabriel Motorcycle checks a bunch of boxes. All for less than $2k! (more…)

Remember the Skully AR-1 Smart Helmet that was taking preorders, just like this one? Skully was going to be the first smart helmet but ended in scandal. To be clear, I am not comparing the two companies other than the fact that they are both trying to develop smart helmets...

It looks like the 2014 prototype electric motorcycle is finally making it to production in 2019. Pricing and specs are still a mystery with the Harley-Davidson LiveWire. There is no gasoline used as this is an all-electric powertrain with a magnetic electric motor mounted low in the frame. I am not sure this will appeal to Harley-Davidson riders as they typically like to be the loudest and most annoying guys in...

Need a getaway vehicle for societal collapse? Well you are in luck, the husband and wife team at Droog Moto makes such bikes. The Droog Moto 12 has a rugged and minimalist design. No extra flare or fenders here. The Droog Moto bike and engine come from a Kawasaki Ninja 650, adds a custom rear subframe, a small one-up seat, heavy-duty forks, an LED brake light, a distressed paint job, under body exhaust, and solid aluminum wheel inserts. All this can be yours for just $17k. ...

This battery pack with wheels was built at a Swiss University and is dubbed the Ethec Electric Motorcycle. The looks, only a mother could love, are due to the large 1260-cell lithium ion battery pack which can be charged in just one hour. The Ethec Electric Motorcycle has a range of 250-miles and has a thermoelectrical cooling system for long battery life. The motorcycles frame is a a lightweight tubular system with a trapezoidal fork for increased stability. They also added a large 7-inch lcd dash to make Elon proud. ...

As much as I love riding motorcycles, I also enjoy hopping on a scooter from time-to-time. There is something about the simplicity of scooters – no gears, easy braking, and the uncomplicated dash. What could make a scooter better? Electricity of course. This modern take on the Vespa styling is from Bolt Mobility and is known as the AppScooter. Strange name. The all-electric AppScooter has an impressive range of 248 miles. The dash is a giant 7″ LCD touchscreen...

2019-yamaha-mxt850-NIKEN-1The Yamaha NIKEN is a head turner for sure. On one hand it looks like a big brother to the Piaggio MP3 scooter. Sorry Yamaha, you had to know that people would say that. However, the color scheme and crazy forks has me doing a double take.

After riding reviews, many of the misconceptions about this crazy 3-wheeled motorcycle have been dispelled – and no, it isn’t a beginners bike. Read on for details, pictures, and video. (more…)

Shoei Neotec II

If you have ever ridden motorcycles in a group setting you know how fun, and frustrating, it can be. It is fun because you get to share the ride experience with friends and are more visible riding in a group. It is a bit frustrating at times when you are in the middle of the pack and need to stop for a restroom break and have no way of communicating with other riders around you.

One way to solve this is to bolt on a SENA Bluetooth Helmet Headset onto your existing helmet. Not the most elegant helmet addition, but it works. Well the folks at SENA and SHOEI have joined forces for a seamless helmet communication system, the Neotec II Helmet.

SENA’s exclusive SRL Communication System is tailored specifically to the NEOTEC II helmet. When installed, the SRL is virtually undetectable from the outside of the helmet, and functions with a simple 3-button control. Chat with other riders via bluetooth intercom, listen to music, hear turn-by-turn GPS directions, and much more with the SRL. Learn more about the SRL here.

The NEOTEC II is an every-occasion helmet with the adaptability to excel no matter where your next journey takes you. The convenient “flip-up” versatility of a true two-in-one helmet combined with next-level aerodynamics, an internal sun shield, Pinlock® EVO fog-resistant system, and the ability to seamlessly integrate with the all-new SENA SRL (SHOEI Rider Link) Communication System, the NEOTEC II is the pinnacle of modular helmet design for today’s hybrid motorcyclists.
