Cleveland CycleWerks was especially known for its retro looking motorcycles, but now the company has entered on a totally new realm with the addition of the FXx model.

The new FXxis looks like a geniune dirt bike, but the company says it is something else. For the moment we don’t have a pretty clear image about what this motorcycle might be as the only words said by Cleveland were: “The FXx is not a dirt bike, it is not a mountain bike, it is a cross between the two. A small, lightweight bike that can take you to places and allow you to do things that heavier and bigger bikes can’t.

At least we have the complete technical spesc which clearly suggest that we are looking a at pretty capable motorcycle.

Power comes from a 110cc 4-stroke single engine which is paired with a kick starter. The engine is mounted on a steel frame that seems to incorporate the fuel tank.

To be able to deal with any type of terrain without baking down, the motorycle is equipped with a pair of light 21 inch wheels which are wrapped in knobby tires.

You also get a narrow seat, disc brakes and a 22 mm carburettor. The new model is priced at 2100 EUR.

Indian has recently revamped its entire lineup, but the surprises didn’t stop here as the company prepares the comeback of one of its older models. Named the Roadmster, the new motorcycle is set for launch in 2015.

Judging by its name, the new Roadmaster will most likely be a tourer. The first Roadmaster was lunched in 1847 and since then it was constantly upgraded with the latest model being released in 2010.

The new generation Roadmaster will be equipped with the company’s fresh 1811 cc Thunder Stroke V-Twin engine which cranks out a maximum power of 91.5 bhp and around 102 lb.ft of torque. The same engine also powers the company’s new Chieftain, Chief Vintage and Chief Classic models.

The information has leaked out thanks to a series of new documents which prove that the new motorcycle has passed the emissions tests in USA.

Perhaps it goes without saying that the new generation will be equipped with all the expected features from a tourer of its class including saddlebags, a top box, a comfy seat an a modern audio system.

Stay tuned for more information!

Yamaha prepared a big surprise for the fans of supersport bikes, as it will completely revamp its iconic YZF-R1 model. The new motorcycle will go head on with rivals such as the Aprilia RSV4, the Ducati 1199 Panigale S and the BMW HP4.

The upgraded version of the Yamaha YZF-R1 will make its official debut at the EICMA 2014 in November and promises to set new standards in the world of superbikes being fitted with an upgraded engine and a comprehensive list of fresh technologies.

For the moment, the details about the new model remain limited to only a few spy shots and some rumors. Word on the street says that the new Yamaha YZF-R1 will be available in two versions namely an aggressive race oriented model which could boost up to 230 hp and a more serene version which is aimed for a more domestic ride.

As far as style is concerned, the new Yamaha YZF-R1 won’t benefit of any mind-blowing upgrades so its already cool body won’t suffer major makeovers.

Polaris will reveal soon its newest creation – the fresh Slingshot. The all-new trike will be a canvas for the latest technologies designed by the company and to spice things up before the launch, Polaris has released a short vide teaser which gives us a glimpse at the new model.

Judging by the first shots, the new Slingshot looks quite impressive inspiring a lot of confidence and agility. Its aggressive lines seem to cope well with the trike’s sporty character and set it apart from its other rivals which opted for a less intimidating style.

We also like the pattern used to arrange the front and rear lights and the entire front fascia which makes us think about the cool nose of the Ferrari FXX. The interior is pretty basic, but we’re glad to notice that the trike will be fitted with a manual shifter.

In terms of technologies, the new Polaris Slingshot is rumored to be equipped with features such as traction and stability control, power steering and ABS, but for the moment, there is no official info that can confirm these assumptions.
