Is Subaru Trying To Intentionally Kill The Manual BRZ?

Is Subaru Trying To Intentionally Kill The Manual BRZ?

The Subaru BRZ and the Toyota GR86 fail crash testing for the dumbest reason

The Toyota GR86 and by extension its twin, the Subaru BRZ, have been highly anticipated for 2022. While driver involvement is the main purpose of the compact Japanese sports car, safety is another key aspect of any modern car, and now, we know how the GR86/BRZ performs on the J-NCAP crash tests. Unfortunately, the results are less than satisfactory, but not for the reasons you may think.

Aprilia's New Baby Streetfighter Looks Like A Shrunk Down Tuono V4

Aprilia’s New Baby Streetfighter Looks Like A Shrunk Down Tuono V4

More powerful and affordable than the KTM 200 Duke

In the motorcycling industry, it’s sort of an unsaid rule to follow up a successful faired sportbike with an equally bonkers but more versatile streetfighter, and we’ve seen all leading manufacturers do this from time to time. The latest one to do so is Aprilia, who has taken the wraps off the new GPR250S naked motorcycle, based on the fully-faired GPR250R sold in Asian markets.

2022 Harley-Davidson Nightster

2022 Harley-Davidson Nightster

All new from the ground up, the Nightster has classic Sportster DNA with a lean and powerful look

Harley-Davidson looks both forward and back on its newest addition to the new Sportster lineup, the Nightster. The basic Sportster silhouette remains intact, but everything else was subject to the MoCo’s efforts to remain competitive in a progressively high-tech market. A new powerplant and high-end ride-quality electronics put this newest Sportster far beyond the previous models with the same name.

You’ve Heard Of Golf Carts Before. Now, Take A Look At This Golf Electric Bike With Twice The Fun & Half The Wheels!

The Super73 X Topgolf Electric Bike is here to help you get to your next golf hole in style

Much like golfing itself, golf carts haven’t changed much since they first came about back in the 1930s, and rarely do we see anyone trying to spruce them up either. This, however, is one of those rare occasions, where we have something interesting.

Popular game center chain Topgolf has joined hands with electric bikemaker Super73 to introduce a modernized golf electric bike that promises twice the fun with half the wheels.

2021 - 2022 Honda CB1000R Black

2021 - 2022 Honda CB1000R Black

The Black Edition is the first real update to the CB1000R in a long time

Honda goes a bit beyond the cursory “Bold New Graphics” package that frequently heralds a new model-year with new bodywork and a blackout paint package on the Honda CB1000R that sets it well apart from the previous version to make it the “Black Edition.” Improved electronics join with the new looks for some under-the-hood improvements increasing its utility as a commuter, and a fun one at that. The punchy four-banger reprises its role as the beating heart with throttle-by-wire and riding modes on board to help with engine management.

2016 - 2022 Harley-Davidson Iron 883

Nothing comes out of the hole like a Sporty

When Harley-Davidson makes changes to the Iron 883, they stay faithful to at least one important aspect – performance. While XL models have never been known as ’fast’ bikes, they certainly have a well-deserved reputation as ’quick’ bikes. Nothing in the Harley world comes out of the hole like a Sporty, or handles the corners like one, and the Iron 883 maintains that tradition with aplomb. Bikes like this show how the XL line has not only survived, but also thrived in the entry-level and sport-minded American markets.

2018 - 2021 Harley-Davidson Iron 1200

2018 - 2021 Harley-Davidson Iron 1200

It’s a little bit retro, a little bit café, and a little bit gangster

Harley-Davidson expands the Sportster family with the new-in-2018 Iron 1200. Retro is in, so the ’70s-esque paint and custom touches drawn from that era give the Iron 1200 plenty of nostalgic value. Power comes from the venerable Evolution engine to the tune of 73 pound-feet of torque to give this ride modern performance that belies the dated veneer. A classic dish with custom spices, the new Iron 1200 raises the Iron stable’s displacement ceiling to draw new customers from a market that has been in decline for over a decade.

2016 - 2022 Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight

2016 - 2022 Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight

It’s lean and mean with dark custom attitude

The Forty-Eight from Harley-Davidson’s Sportster stable has that signature bulldog stance with beefy front forks and fat tires on a narrow frame. The 1,202 cc Evo engine comes blacked out with chrome blings, fed by a ’peanut tank’ that appeared on Sporty’s throughout its history. Low, low seat height and Dark Custom attitude give the Forty-Eight that low-slung, lean, mean look.

Meet Dunaali - A Carbon Fiber-laden Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 Made For The Drag Strip

Designed for speed, the bike weighs a lot less than the stock bike and makes 50% more power too!

In a sea of custom Royal Enfields, we rarely come across some truly exceptional projects. This, however, is exactly that.

Dubbed ‘Dunaali’ (meaning a double-barrel shotgun), this custom Continental GT 650 has been created by India-based Greasehouse Customs who wanted to build something that looks fast and goes even faster.

1-Of-2000 Yamaha V-Max 20th Anniversary Edition Looks Dope & It Can Be All Yours

Looking for something rare and old-school and you’re on a budget? Then, this special Yamaha Power Cruiser should fit the bill rather well

The Yamaha V-Max (yes, the bike in the Ghost Rider sequel) was arguably the most impressive power cruiser in the Japanese bikemakers’ lineup, made popular of course for its 70-degree V4 engine and distinctive styling.

Even though Yamaha only updated the V-max once in its fairly long life cycle (1985-2020), not many know that a special edition of the bike debuted in 2005. It was a bike that marked the V-max’s 20-year anniversary.

Only 2000 of these were made available to the public and one such bike (#268/2000) is currently up for grabs at Bring A Trailer.

Interested? Well, read on to know more about it.

Battle Of Budget Family Sedans: Nissan Altima vs Mazda 3

Battle Of Budget Family Sedans: Nissan Altima vs Mazda 3

How do two family sedans, not known for their performance whatsoever, fare against each other?

While it is fun to see sports cars and supercars drag race, there’s something about watching family sedans doing things that they aren’t meant to. They’re perhaps even more exciting because these are the cars we see on the roads a lot more frequently. ‘Sam CarLegion’ generally stages races between mass-market cars, and this time, he’s brought two family sedans with Japanese routes to face each other – the Nissan Altima and the Mazda 3. Which car do you think will win?
