Top 10 Fastest Road-Legal Motorcycles You Can Buy Today

Top 10 Fastest Road-Legal Motorcycles You Can Buy Today

We list down the 10 Best Motorcycles that you can buy today and are built for speed.

We have always been fascinated by speed. The adrenaline rush that it provides has pushed us to build some of the fastest machines on this planet. And we started clocking it way back in 1920 when Gene Walker rode an Indian at 104.12 MPH on Daytona Beach. But way before that in 1903, Glenn Curtiss set an unofficial motorcycle speed record using an aircraft engine and topped out at 64 mph.
The fire for speed is still burning strong and manufacturers continue to push the boundaries of engineering, to add numbers on the speedometer. Icons like the Honda Blackbird and Suzuki Hayabusa still remain the ones to look up to. But there are newbies coming in, and there are coming in hot! We list down the best of these fast junkies.

5 Alternatives to the Dodge Demon That Will Fill The Void

5 Alternatives to the Dodge Demon That Will Fill The Void

The Demon is dead, but not all is lost

By now, many of us motoring enthusiasts have heard the sad news about the Dodge Hellcat and Demon. The SRT department has long cemented its reputation as the creator of some of the most outrageous, awesome, zero f***s given muscle cars and the Demon was the last and most powerful of them all. For around $85,000, you got a 9-second car with over 800 horsepower that can do wheelies. Who does that? All good things must come to an end, however, as stricter emission regulations bring an end to big supercharged V-8 engines. With this in mind, here are some alternatives to the tire-shredding unholy creation. If you’re a Dodge fan, you might want to stick until the end, for this one.

8 Forgotten Concepts That Should Have Made it to Production

8 Forgotten Concepts That Should Have Made it to Production

From the "could-have-beens" to the "should-have-beens," these concept vehicles didn’t deserve the exits they received

Concept cars are often the result of an automaker’s desire to showcase possibilities. Very rarely, though, do these possibilities translate to reality. Some concepts get used as springboards for future production models. Some get used as blueprints for future technologies. But more often than not, a lot of concept cars get sent back to the shadows, never to be heard from again. It’s a shame because the concept cars on this list didn’t deserve that fates they received. These concepts should’ve been turned into production models. Unfortunately, for one reason or another, none of them did, and all we’re left with our thoughts of what could’ve been.

Ranked: The Most Powerful Four-Cylinder Production Cars (and One From 1911)

Ranked: The Most Powerful Four-Cylinder Production Cars (and One From 1911)

Right now, the car world is swamped with turbocharged engines. This means high specific output per liter of capacity, lots of torque, massive horsepower numbers and incredible specs for the cars equipped with such tech. While trying to figure out how to present the most powerful four-cylinder production cars, I thought of listing them by the highest specific output of the engine. Yet, listing five with 350+ horsepower feels more fun. It is quite incredible to see to what lengths the producers are willing to go in order to convince us that turbocharging and four-cylinder engines are just enough for basically anything, including high-end performance. These five cars with four-cylinder engines have so much power they will make you forget about a V-8.

If you have automotive rust problems, these products can give you the edge you need!

Over time everything deteriorates in one way or another. The same goes for our cars. Among all sicknesses that come with time, rust is the worst, as in most cases, parts hit by “the brown plague” cannot simply be unbolted, conditioned, and bolted back on. There are different cases and applications, and for each of them, the ideal solution may be different. It is important to make an informed decision before making a purchase, which is why we have compiled a list of some of the best rust converters you can buy now.

10 Fun Cars with 200 Horsepower or Less

10 Fun Cars with 200 Horsepower or Less

Power, as they say, is nothing without control, and it is that control as well as the enjoyment derived from having it that is the criteria for this list. Having fun in a car with lots of horsepower is far easier than doing it with, say, no more than 200 ponies; engineers have their work cut out for them when making these cars fast since they don’t have the luxury of neck-snapping horsepower and acceleration as wow factor.

But such fun, low-horsepower cars do exist. The kind of cars which may not be super impressive in a straight line, but make up for that by being superbly rounded in the handling department. Where the drive from the wheels goes is also not important here, as the list posted after the jump contains cars whose power goes to the front, the rear, and to all four wheels as well.

These cars will put a smile on your face; they’ve got character, and they also allow you to drive them close to their limit and revel in the entire breadth of their performance. And, even if you exceed their limits and plant them in a ditch, the repair costs will also be noticeably lower than those associated with really serious performance machines.

The Coolest Cars You Can Finally Import Into America in 2021

Just like the people who live in different parts of the globe, the car world is diverse and multicultural. Although many great cars were produced over the years, for one reason or another some of them did not make it to certain regions of the world.

America is one of those places that missed out on some truly epic cars or they simply got lame versions of them, case in point being the BMW M3 E36. Not all is lost, however, as when a car becomes 25 years old, you can import it to the US regardless of whether it passed the required emissions and crash tests. Here’s what cars you can legally import in the U.S. in 2021.

These are the cars that you won’t be able to buy in 2021

2020 was a slower-than-usual year for the automotive market. Factories had to shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the global lockdown cancelled nearly all major auto shows, causing delays of new car introductions. But most releases eventually went ahead as planned and we saw tens of brand-new vehicles hit dealerships or brake cover for 2021. But 2020 also saw many cars go out of production or being pulled off the U.S. market. We’ve lost more than 15 nameplates, and while some of them won’t be missed, others retired with iconic status. Here’s our list of cars that you won’t be able to buy in North America in 2021.
