2016 - 2018 SSR Motorsports’ Doohan iTank
SSR Motorsports has dipped a toe in the EV market with a handful of products, but the iTank scooter by Doohan takes the cake. Marketed under various names in different markets, the iTank rocks a Delta-trike configuration with a moderate range and plug-and-play, easy to use drivetrain. A leaning front end provides extra traction without sacrificing the sensation of flight, and the factory offers bags and a top case to convert it to a nice little campus commuter.

2016 - 2018 SSR Motorsports Snake Eyes
Nothing brings to mind the down-and-dirty custom-bike days of the ’70s and ’80s quite like a UJM-based custom bobber, and SSR Motorsports piles on plenty of that old-school with its street-retro ’Snake Eyes’. Built for the entry-level customer, and anyone looking for a somewhat whimsical nod to the custom culture for that matter. An 18-horsepower, 249 cc thumper drives the thing — plenty for trips around town or campus, but the real story here is with the overall vibe that looks to be straight out of the garage right off the showroom floor. Join me while I take a closer look at this fun little ride that so clearly is looking to capture part of the U.S. market.

2017 SSR Motorsports Buccaneer
SSR Motorsports brings some classic Italian style to the small-displacement U.S. market with its Buccaneer Classic and Cafe’ Racer models. Powered by 250 cc air-cooled V-twins — yes, I said V-twin — in a range usually dominated by thumpers, the Buccaneer siblings bring a little European flair to the table to show that small displacement doesn’t have to be boring and having a bike with a small carbon-footprint doesn’t have to come without style.

Since 2002, SSR Motorsports out of Norwalk, California, has been in the business of importing and distributing pit bikes , ATVs and other off-road vehicles. They have recently expanded to include Benelli street-centric sportbikes, scooters and mopeds, and have even dipped a toe into the green sector with a selection of electrically-assisted bicycles that shows an appreciation for environmental stewardship I find endearing, to say the least. The 2017 Rowdy 150 adds to the street-scooter lineup, and it is unlike any other scooter out there that I can immediately bring to mind, so without further ado, let’s take a look at this interesting little scoot.

Pit bike, monkey bike and even ankle-biter has been used to describe the Razkull 125 from SSR Motorsports. I suppose arguments could be made for and against any and all of these monikers, but no matter what you call it, the Razkull is a fun little ride that is cheap, and easy to own and operate. The pit bike sector isn’t exactly what you would call overpopulated if ya know what I mean, but the bracket is fairly well defined and popular, particularly on the West Coast. What started out as an on/off-road ride whose primary function in life was Motocross track-side transit has expanded into a class all its own, and as with anything else that moves, has begun to serve as a race platform all its own. I wanted to look at this little pocket rocket, and see how well SSR does against its worthy competitors at Honda and Kawasaki.
