Remember the Ducati Supermono? Well, it might just be making a comeback
Pierre Terblanche is credited with giving Ducati as design language that can be traced from the 1990s through to today. One bike, the Supermono, was built in very small numbers for a one-make race series and its design influenced that of iconic Ducatis such as the 916. Now Terblanche is working on a replacement and we should be very excited!
Think Electric is the Future? No, THIS is the future!

Video: Ultimate Supercar vs. Superbike Battle: Which is Fastest Around a Track?
Put a car and a bike on the same track and they should be pretty evenly matched: the bike can accelerate quicker but the car can brake later and harder and, in theory, corner faster. But there has to be a winner and, in this time trial between a Ducati Panigale 1199S and a McLaren MP4-12C around the tight and tortuous Cadwell Park in the UK, it’s closer than you might think.
Hero Motorcycles’ Factories In India Are Unbelievable!
If you are selling millions of motorcycles every year, then you need production facilities like no other.

Who wants a two-stroke road bike? Who is disappointed you can’t buy one? Who would be happy if you were able to buy one?
There are many of us who remember with great fondness the 2-stroke engine, with its distinctive sound, smell and blistering performance out of all proportion to its capacity.
Back in the 1990s, the writing was on the wall for the two-stroke. The emissions were just too high for the bleating environmental lobby, and the manufacturers were (...)

Is Triumph Setting Itself Up For a Fall With The New Tiger 1200?
Triumph has made oblique references as to which adventure bikes it is gunning for with the heavily revised 2022 Tiger 1200 and it is the BMW GS. However, if it’s not careful, it will find itself going head-to-head with the KTM 1290 Adventure and is that a battle it can win?
How Much Tech Will it Take To Make A Safe Motorcycle?

The Chinese Zongshen Cyclone is Really an Aprilia in Disguise
Is there any western company with whom the Chinese don’t have a partnership? This concept from Zongshen, called the Cyclone RA9, is largely made up of Aprilia chassis and engine as Zongshen is a partner to Piaggio, the Italian group that owns the Aprilia brand, among others.
