Is Honda About to Hit Back in the Superbike Stakes?
The Most Important Ducati in History
Seriously Ducati: Where Did That Come From?
2019 - 2022 Kawasaki Ninja H2 R
Many of the major players offer a pure-D racetrack hypersport for the public’s consumption, and for Kawasaki, that honor falls to the freshly updated Ninja H2 R. The H2 R brings to the table the best Kawi has to offer along with top-flight aerodynamics and a supercharged engine on top of a full electronics suite making it a threat on the track right out of the box. That’s about the only place it’s a threat though, since the H2 R is far too awesome to be street legal, and as a track-only bike, it wastes not an ounce on any silly old mirrors, headlights, or turn signals. Carbon-fiber components complete the package with their own brand of lightweight strength.

Husqvarna or GasGas into MotoGP?
KTM has a lot of brands it needs to push into the public eye. Not only is there Husqvarna and GasGas but also CFMoto, its Chinese partner, which is keen to make in-roads into the European market. Could the Austrian manufacturer be about to follow Ducati’s example and put more bikes on the MotoGP grid?

Video: Ultimate Supercar vs. Superbike Battle: Which is Fastest Around a Track?
Put a car and a bike on the same track and they should be pretty evenly matched: the bike can accelerate quicker but the car can brake later and harder and, in theory, corner faster. But there has to be a winner and, in this time trial between a Ducati Panigale 1199S and a McLaren MP4-12C around the tight and tortuous Cadwell Park in the UK, it’s closer than you might think.

Video: MotoGP Bike vs. Formula One Car vs. V8 Supercar
Australia has produced more than its fair share of racing greats on two and four wheels. Here, three of the best go head to head in their respective vehicles: Casey Stoner on his Honda MotoGP bike, Mark Webber in his Red Bull Formula 1 car and Jamie Whincup in his V8 Supercar. Five laps and the F1 car has to lap the other two before the finish line.
It’s Official: Buell Production Lines To Re-Start on November 1st!
When production of Buell Motorcycles stopped in 2016, most thought that was the last we would see of the iconic American sports bike brand. Now, it’s new owners have confirmed that the production lines will re-start on November 1st, 2021, bringing new life to the American sports bike.
2021 Ducati SuperSport 950 / 950 S
It’s been four years since the last update to Ducati’s SuperSport 950 platform, and now it’s on the receiving end of a fairly major rework ahead of MY2021. Tuned-up fairings enclose a more emission-compliant engine along with beefed-up electronics to complete the package. The SuperSport comes in the base 950 package, but if you’re a bona fide pegdragger, the 950 S version takes things up a notch or three.

The 2022 Yamaha R7 Could Be The Perfect Sports Bike
2020 - 2022 Kawasaki Ninja 1000SX
Kawasaki stepped up its game ahead of the 2020 model year with new body components, updated electronics, and a smoother-running engine for its Ninja 1000SX. The factory also tuned up the ergonomics to improve long-range comfort and even chucked on an adjustable clutch lever for a little bit of lagniappe. Improvements in rideability, control, and aesthetics join the liter-plus engine and Ninja pedigree to deliver a refined product to the masses.
The Most Powerfull Sportsbikes against The Tesla Plaid Is Now Fair Game
Carlos Lago from Edmunds pits a brand new Tesla Model S Plaid, with 1000bhp against a Suzuki Hayabusa and a Kawasaki ZX-14R on the drag strip. We might be used to motorbikes pretty much destroying any supercar you care to mention but it seems that electricity might have the edge here.

Video: The Greatest Isle of Man TT Race Ever
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.
