The tricked out Buell 1125R prototype by Magpul Ronin seems to have generated positive feedback in such a measure that Magpul went further on and refined it with the limited production goal in mind.

The main features setting the Magpul Ronin apart from a standard Buell 1125R are designed in-house and consist in girder front suspension, linkage fork with Penske coil-over monoshock, and front mounted radiator, all contouring a different approach towards the streetfighter style and we happen to like it very much.

In 2010, Suzuki celebrates 25 years of successfully producing the GSX-R series, so they have released a special edition GSX-R600 featuring a paintjob that is reminiscent of the 1999 factory World Superbike racing bike, but also a Yoshimura exhaust, top yoke plaque and an authenticity certificate.

Only 25 anniversary models will be made and they are destined for the Britain market at the price of £8799 ($13,283). The bike will be first seen in public at the Carole Nash MCN Scottish motorcycle show this weekend and reservations start on the 1st of April. For more information about the Suzuki GSX-R special edition and reservation process go to www.imgsx-r.com.

Bengt Gunnarson, the owner of MC-Varuhus (Motorcycle Warehouse) dealership in Stockholm has just unveiled two icons for the motorcycle industry, a Honda NR750 and RC30, which he kept intact in the basement for around two decades.

One from 1989 and the other from 1992, the bikes are both part of limited runs that Honda offered as technological showpieces (NR750) and homologated race versions built by HRC for World Superbike (RC30).

Unboxing the two bikes now is like going back in time and experiencing that same thrill fueled by the fact you’re getting your hands on the best there is out there. Although Honda evolved A LOT since these bikes were produced, the two look just marvelous and they will be displayed in the dealership’s showroom for the posterity. It is totally worth seeing the video after the break.

2010 Triumph Speed Triple SE unveils new logo

This might look like a subtle way to modify the Triumph Speed Triple , but it is actually a production special edition model that the British motorcycle company created and on which a new logo is being introduced. The bike will go on sale in Italy this summer and while technically it is unchanged from the standard Speed Triple , visually it is a whole different story. To begin with, the matte olive drab color gives it that serious appearance and another thing you’ll notice is the different "Triumph" and "Speed Triple" lettering.

This means Triumph gets rid of their traditional logo with the swoopy R in the subtle attempt to approach things in a more modern way and this particular Speed Triple SE shows precisely this. The bike now still looks aggressive and powerful but quite honestly we thing Triumph did just what they thought a customer would ask his tuner to turn his Speed Triple into (visually, of course) and we like it…a lot.

Triumph’s 2010 model range has two new Special Edition models, the Daytona 675 SE and Thunderbird SE.

The British manufacturer’s high spec middleweight supersport bike, the Daytona 675 SE stands out both from the standard model and from the previous SE model thanks to new flank graphics, white striped wheel, race-inspired brake and clutch levers and a host of carbon parts from Triumph’s accessories catalogue. This bike will hit dealerships on March 1st and have a price tag of $12,700.

In what the 2010 Triumph Thunderbird SE is concerned, it comes with standard ABS and gets the all-new Carnival Red color. Various genuine Triumph accessories are available for this model too. Expect to find the 2010 Thunderbird SE in dealerships from early March with an MSRP of $18,900.

Apart from the above mentioned, both bikes are technically unchanged from their standard siblings.

At a first glance, this motorcycle appears to be no more than a 2010 Victory Vegas available in Fire Ball Red, Competition Yellow, Pearl White or Turbo Silver and featuring a side-mounted 106 race plate graphic, color-matched frame and swingarm and blacked-out forks and drivetrain, but it is in fact Victory’s new Vegas Limited Edition model, which they also happen to claim being their “quickest motorcycle ever produced”.

The technical solution making that claim possible consists in Stage 2 cams being fitted to the 106-cubic inch V-twin motor now developing 97 horsepower and 113 pound-feet of torque.

Victory only plans to produce 100 of these bikes in 2010 and they will come with a $15,999 price tag. Orders are being taken until February 15, so if you want one, then you better hurry up. Click past the break for the official press release.

Harley-Davidson has just launched a limited edition run of the CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide for 2010 and their goal is to drift away from the self-created stylistical patterns. A simple look at their new high-end model is enough to see that chrome is almost completely absent. Instead, H-D uses no less than 185 unique black parts, components and accessories, not to mention the Crimson Mist Black / Dark Slate and Flame graphics base color.

Those expecting an all-new model must find that this is not the case. The bike is exclusive, but remains a Black version of the standard CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide. It is powered by the same Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110 engine displacing 1803cc, developing 115 pound-feet of torque and mated to the same six-speed Cruise Drive transmission. As expected, the massive powerplant features both black and chrome.

Touring goodies such as a 160-watt CD/AM/FM/WB/MP3 Advanced Audio System by Harman-Kardon, CB and intercom, passenger audio with controls, cruise control and standard XM Radio as well as a Garmin Road Tech zūmo 660 GPS unit make life on board much more pleasurable.

The only sad part about this model is the fact that it is limited to 999 units and has an MSRP of $36,499. Read the full press release and enjoy the picture gallery after the jump.

There’s nothing wrong with BMW wanting their S1000RR superbike to teach the Japanese liter bikes a lesson – and considering the Beemer’s 193hp and 403.5 lb dry weight, not to mention the $13,800 MSRP, the German giant has all the chances to do so - , but when we heard about the BMW S1000RR Carbon Edition, the first reactions sounded something like “this is just too good to be true” and, yes, we can’t take our eyes off this very exclusive motorcycle.

As the name suggests, the fairing is made of carbon fiber, but BMW options such as traction control, ABS and alarms are all standard on the special edition model. Also, the Akrapovic full exhaust system increases power with as much as 10hp while smoothening mid-range torque. Sounds great to us and with an MSRP of €24,990 ($35,685), the Carbon Edition can make a rider feel extremely proud of his new acquisition.

At first it might look like a tuner got its hands on the Moto Guzzi Griso 8V and raised the stakes in stylish naked motorcycles, but the fact is that the author of this gorgeous special edition model is the Italian manufacturer itself. The changes are simply too subtle: new Tenni Green or Rosso Mandello Red color schemes with a blacked-out powertrain, a stitched leather seat and spoked wheels featuring tubular tires.

In the engine department, revised cam profiles and fuel injectors as well as a larger airbox increase torque from 80 to 85 lb-ft, while the 1,151cc transverse v-twin still can’t brag about developing more than 110 hp. This sure sounds like poor performance for the average sportbike rider, but we will have to say that the Moto Guzzi Griso 8V SE doesn’t meet the full requirements to be a roadster, heading fast towards the performance cruiser category in its own Italian way.

Suzuki Italia has teamed up with “GP Design” to create a limited edition version of the B-King. Called Hyaku B-King, the bike arrives to celebrate 100 years of existence and the name itself is suggestive as Hyaku stands for “hundred” in Japanese.

The idea was to actually create a special kit for the Hamamatsu model, composed from: silencer, matte black fairings, redesigned headlight and taillight. This means that current owners of the specified model can buy the Hyaku kit separately and enhance the already aggressive look of their bikes.

The Hamamatsu Hyaku B-King costs €14,500 ($21,882), but the manufacturer says it’s worth every cent. And who are we to disagree?
