2017 - 2020 Suzuki SV650

2017 - 2020 Suzuki SV650

It’s the new look of the UJM standard

Suzuki continued with the evolution of the SV650 line with the all-new-in-2017 SV650. Built on the success of the original SV650 that covered 1999 through 2008, and its offspring, the SFV650 “Gladius,” the new ride carries the SV DNA into a new generation. With a revamped 645 cc engine, it has more horsepower than ever before.

After a gap of almost 30 years, Norton came back to the Isle of Man TT races with the rotary-engined NRS588 race bike. Riding it was Steve Hislop and against him was the blunt brilliance of Carl Fogarty on a Yamaha OW01 750cc. What followed was one of the greatest TT races ever.

2015 - 2021 Honda XR650L

2015 - 2021 Honda XR650L

It’s the "I wanna have fun" bike you’ll hang on to

Honda carries its venerable XR650L line into 2021, but to be honest, it’s almost completely unchanged from the original version unleashed on the world back in 1993. Before you scoff, I would point out that sharks haven’t changed in millions of years, having evolved long ago into creatures perfectly suited to their environments, and apparently, so it is with the XR650L. The Red Riders got it right out of the gate with this one, and popular support keeps the bike on Honda’s showroom floors even after nearly a quarter-century.

Kawasaki Commercial Are So Lame We Are Worried About Their Future

It basically tells us nothing!

Teaser videos about new models are nothing new. In the past few weeks, we’ve had multiple videos from Husqvarna and two from Triumph, all of which have at least shown the motorcycle that is being teased, albeit in varying levels of visibility. This latest attempt from Kawasaki is pretty dire and tells us pretty much nothing.

Will We Finally Get To See The Kawasaki Z650RS Retro Roadster?

Could it be in showrooms in 2022?

With the Z900RS doing great business for Kawasaki, it would make sense to take the parallel twin engine from the Z650 and put it into a retro-styled model to cash in on the booming modern classic segment.

2021 Husqvarna 701 Enduro

Boosted performance, new electronics, and tuned-up bodywork

Swedish giant Husqvarna rolls into MY2021 with boosted performance, new electronics, and a spanky new Euro-5 emissions compliance rating on the 701 Enduro.

Deus Ex Machina Brings Back The Tenere To the Yamaha T7

Deus Ex Machina Brings Back The Tenere To the Yamaha T7

Turning Modern Into Retro

The Yamaha T7 Tenere was a new direction in adventure bikes when it was launched. Missing the extreme size and weight of other large adventure bikes, it was also refreshingly simple. Not the obvious basis for a customisation project, Deus of Australia obviously thought otherwise and came up with this brilliant homage to Paris-Dakar racers of the late 1970s/early 1980s.
