It’s long been said that bikers evolve with age, so while the Daytona 675 is the dream of any sports motorcycle passionate in his early twenties, the Triumph Sprint ST is a family guy’s idea of a sports tourer. If that’s the case, I’m getting married as soon as possible.

The bike is extremely reliable and versatile while also retaining the British style and finesse with performance to back it up.

After recently presenting the BMW R1000RS sketch showing how a streetfighter edition of the BMW S1000RR superbike could look, Obiboi has also considered the possibility of a half-faired version and went back to the drawing board. The Italian designer calls his latest sketch the S1000RS ClubRacer.

Presuming that BMW would ever consider building such a version, they would have to think at spoiling the kind of sportbike rider that still loves symmetrical headlights (these appear to be of this kind), craves for wind protection and yet enjoys an unveiled inline-four motor screaming German engineering. Looking at it that way, this is one hell of a rendering.

We’re all familiar with the Lightcycles from Tron Legacy and we recently came across a video from the 2010 Toy Show only to find that the futuristic looking sportsbikes actually appear like they’re moving even when standing still on the exposition floor. Even greater is the fact that there are no special effects involved and the rider is actually part of the hubless machine. I simply can’t believe this is just how that thing looks at 0 mph.

In one of the latest Bajaj video ads, two apparently calm girls but who have clearly seen The Matrix a couple of times engage in a serious fight immediately after barely hearing the exhaust noise of the Indian manufacturer’s latest motorcycle model, the DTS-i. We find the video rather long, but very amusing as well.

Kawasaki produced and sold the Ninja250R for 20 years before considering an upgrade and getting at work to develop a brand new model, the one that was launched a couple of yeast ago and which started a complete frenzy especially among beginning riders. Soon turning into Kawi’s best selling sport bike, the Ninja 250R carries on as a 2010 model year with virtually nothing changed on it, so the only rightful question related to it is: “Will it be the same 20 years from now?”

A wise man once said that intelligence consists in the ability to adapt to new situations each and every time these emerge and it looks that this is exactly what Kawasaki is doing with the Ninja 650R. This is the head of their sports bike lineup and it meets the latest requests in matter of performance, comfort, user-friendliness, reliability and style. It started as Kawi’s response to the need of such a bike on the market and it got much better with time.

Honda has released a video showing the VFR1200 being assembled at the Kumamoto factory, the mother ship of Honda motorcycle factories and one of the most modern and environmentally factories in Japan. There, on a 426.5 ft (130 meters) long production line, the complete assembly of a motorcycle takes only 90 seconds.

Vyrus has just released the official pictures of their 987 C3 4V and we’re still having troubles looking at it as to a real production motorcycle, not just because it looks totally off the patterns, but because we have to be aware of the fact that this is an 184hp sportsbike with hub-center steering and a carbon bodywork. These pictures are even better after seeing the Vyrus being assembled in less than three minutes .

The 2010 Kawasaki Versys is a funky middleweight motorcycle that carries on technically unchanged and yet is anything but a disappointment in terms of engine performance or handling. While most riders could have lived with a slightly lower riding position, the bike is now simply redesigned, but retains the original style that caught interest in the first place.

Are you in love with motorcycle racing? If so, you’ve probably heard of TTXGP, the world’s first electric motorcycle race held on the Isle of Man TT last year, but I bet you didn’t knew they’re making a movie about it. Actually, it will be a documentary called Charge. Ewan McGregor is the narrator and viewers can watch plenty of behind-the-scenes sequences as well as listen to the creators of the bikes themselves, such as Michael Czysz. Please watch the trailer after the jump.
