Alta Motors dropped a powerful new Redshift MXR

The motocross bike gets big on power and range

The Brisbane, California based Alta Motors designs and manufactures the most advanced electric motorcycles in the industry. Starting in 2010, the firm has come a long way in establishing itself building bikes that prove to be better off-roaders than the petrol-powered counterparts.

Until now, their motorcycle line-up included a Supermoto (SM), an Enduro (EX) and a Motocross (MX) electric off-road bikes. Now, the makers are stepping up their game and have launched a brand new motorcycle called the Redshift MXR.

What if these car companies made motorcycles?

What if these car companies made motorcycles?

Six car brands that can give the current players a run for their money

I know what you are thinking. Companies like Honda, BMW, Suzuki, and Peugeot are already making both cars and motorcycles. They have successfully managed both the shows and show no signs of aging or trouble to either one because of the other. Yamaha is also trying to get a piece of the four-wheeled world with ‘The Sports Ride’ concept.

But what if exotic car makers like McLaren, Mustang, Porsche, and Rolls-Royce made motorcycles? It would be awesome, of course, but how would they look like? Well, we might have an answer to that. Thanks to the chaps at Jennings Harley-Davidson, a dealership with shops in both Leeds and Gateshead in the UK.

They’ve designed six absolutely bonkers motorcycle concepts that distill visual cues and character of what the company actually makes.

KTM is testing new 690 Enduro and Supermoto

KTM is testing new 690 Enduro and Supermoto

Spyshots show them being tested fully dressed

Introduction of new emission norms last year forced all manufacturers to shelve a few models since they were unviable to have a ramped up production to suit new rules. The Austrian manufacturer, KTM, too had to undergo this process and amongst the many models taken down were the 690 Enduro (title image) and 690 Supermoto.

Luckily, however, it seems like KTM just couldn’t completely let go of these babies and is currently undergoing a full testing phase of their brand new iterations that will conform to new laws. Our friends at MCN managed to snap a few pictures of the Enduro and the Supermoto doing a full production model tests.

2018 is here. And these top dogs are heading our way

Ten of the 2018’s hottest bikes coming to change the way we ride

Aspirin taken, ate some food, drank that much-needed water and took a hot shower. Hangover time is over and getting my head around the fact that I have to wake up early to work depressed me at first. But luckily the excitement brought with the launch of these new machines means we and I get to see them on our roads pretty soon, and I cannot wait to unveil the secrets they behold.

Unveiled at the back end of 2017, these hot machines give new life goals and expectations, not just for riders, but also to other manufacturers giving them no option but to up their game as well. Thanks to this, competition keeps getting hotter by the day, and we are ultimately rewarded with machines that beam innovation and technology.

Here are the top picks that are touted to take the market by storm in 2018:

Triumph gets some interesting bits for its 2018 tiger series

Triumph gets some interesting bits for its 2018 tiger series

Teaser video confirms the new Tiger series to be launched on November 7th

After their Bonneville range, it’s the Tiger models that give the British brand their numbers. So much that Triumph feels no inhibitions with having 17 different models in the line-up that carry 800 cc and 1215 cc engine mods.

As regularly updating their line-ups go, Triumph is most probably giving us a new Tiger for the 2018 range and will boast of having ’Transformed’, with a ’New Tiger Triple Engine’ and ’New Tiger Technology’. Apart from this, few industry sources also quote that Triumph will just be giving all the Tigers mild updates to look fresh for 2018.

KTM unwraps the 2018 Freeride E-XC Enduro.

This is the face of the next generation of electric motorcycles from the Austrian brand

When KTM brought its electric-powered enduro models into the states earlier this year, it was through a pilot program with just 11 dealers across the country chosen specifically to study the level of consumer interest in electric motorcycles.

Now, the Austrian brand has considered the serial production of electric motorcycles and will get them to our shores along with the rest of its petrol-powered models. The first of its new-generation electric motorcycles is the 2018 Freeride E-XC Enduro that boasts around 50% more energy onboard than the previous one.

2015 - 2017 Yamaha WR250F

2015 - 2017 Yamaha WR250F

Yamaha Gives New Life To An Old Favorite

First introduced in 2001, the WR250F has seen some changes through the years up to and including 2014 — most notably the alloy frame introduced in 2007, improved suspension and some ergonomic tweaks — but for the most part, it had gradually fallen from being a hot ticket to same-old, same-old mediocrity. That changed in 2015. With updates in technology, including the revolutionary rearward slanted engine, an added sixth gear and wide-ratio transmission, twin-chamber fork and fuel injection, the WR250F is a hot ticket once again in the Enduro world, where Yamaha hopes to revive interest in the 250 cc market that has been waning since they essentially quit updating the WR250F in 2007.

2017 KTM Freeride E-XC

The Electric Freeride Now Available In The US

KTM is bringing its electric enduro to the States. This fun little ride has been entertaining European riders for a few years now with its 2.6-kWh lithium battery and 21-horsepower electric motor, and now American buyers have an opportunity to see what all the hubbub is about. At least when it comes to the brown; the E-XC doesn’t meet U.S. requirements for street-legal use in spite of its headlight, taillight and turn signals. Still, it’s a glimpse of the possibilities within the sector.

2015 - 2018 Suzuki DR200S

2015 - 2018 Suzuki DR200S

A Tried-And-True Dual Sport

Suzuki brings dual-sport capabilities to the entry-level sector with its DR200S. A heavy emphasis on off-road performance defines the overall look of the thing, and a 199 cc engine drives it over hill and dale as well as down the road with all the appropriate lighting for safety and legalities. The end result seems to be a functional, if plain, bike that provides a stable ride and moderate power with a humble overall bearing. A carry-over for the last few years, it hasn’t changed much, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

2016 - 2017 Christini AWD 450 Explorer

2016 - 2017 Christini AWD 450 Explorer

Add the Street Legal package to Christini’s AWD 450 Military Edition bike and you have the AWD 450 Explorer. Based in Philadelphia, Christini has been pursuing AWD for two wheels since 1995. What started as AWD mountain bikes turned to AWD motorcycles in 2002.

It was in 2008 when a Christini-upgraded KTM bike took second place in the inaugural Extreme Enduro Race that AWD was established as competitively viable technology. Considering that folks have raced Christini AWD bikes in every EnduroCross event since 2006 speaks to their capability as competition rides. In fact, Christini bikes are race-tested and proved reliable in World Enduro, GNCC, Endurocross, Red Bull Last Man Standing, and Hare scrambles.

2016 - 2017 Christini AWD Military

2016 - 2017 Christini AWD Military

I enjoy writing military hardware pieces, but usually the information is academic because the machines aren’t available to the public. Not so with the Christini AWD 450 Military Edition. Even thought it was designed for military use, Christini decided to make it available to the general public, thus moving it from the realm of wishful thinking into that of possibility. Possible daydreams are my favorite.

Christini partnered up with James King, founder of the Tactical Mobility Training program in Fayetteville, North Carolina, to produce a training regimen for U.S. troops who use the Christini AWD bike. The program was designed to train riders to operate deep within enemy territory, far away from roads or other infrastructure. This ride isn’t just for military applications either – police, park rangers and first responders will find it a useful addition to their motor pools and it can also serve as a viable option to traditional ATV/UTV-type vehicles used in hunting pursuits.

Drakkar From Imaginactive

A Three-Wheel Enduro Bike

Imaginactive is the brainchild of one Charles Bombardier of BRP royalty, and it draws on some of the best engineering and design talent in the world to come up with fresh new ideas, as well as improvements on existing designs. Today, I want to take a look at one of their more interesting concept vehicles, the Drakkar trike designed in collaboration with Ashish Thulkar from the Indian Institute of Science. It’s a three-wheeler intended for off-road enduro environments and it sure does look the part.

2016 Ducati Multistrada 1200 Enduro / Pike’s Peak

Two new members arrive in the Ducati Multistrada 1200 stable for 2016: the Enduro and the Pike’s Peak. Breaking with tradition, Ducati jumps with both feet into the adventure market with a tried-and-true Multistrada base and gives us a truly off-road-capable performance machine in the Enduro and a nod to hill-climb racing success with the Pike’s Peak.

They might have the same DVT engine and the same basic chassis, but with so many updates and upgrades, these two 1200s are really in their own class. In short, these aren’t your dad’s Multistrada.

2015 - 2016 BMW G 650 GS

Fun. That’s a word I keep hearing over and over again when folks talk about the G 650 GS from BMW. Made-over in 2010 for the 2011 MY, this member of BMW’s 2016 adventure stable is at home on back roads and easy off-road terrain. This single-cylinder enduro ride has a gutsy little engine and suspension to match whether you’re on-road or tearing up the dirt.

2016 Husqvarna FE 450 / FE 501 / FE 501 S

2016 Husqvarna FE 450 / FE 501 / FE 501 S

For 2016, Husqvarna brings back the FE 450 and FE 501 along with its street-legal brother, the FE 501 S, with improvements and enhancements — some of which come from the benefit of sharing the R&D field with KTM. Revised front-end geometry improves handling and lots of weight-reduction changes — while each one not very significant, but they add up to a weight savings in total.

New brakes, an updated DDS clutch, and an engine and suspension tuned for enduro use make the FE 450 and FE 501 a winning pair off-road. With a standard map switch, you can match engine mapping to the terrain, conditions and your riding style.
