Andrea Dovizioso wasted zero time at the controls of the Ducati Team GP18, the Italian leading the opening free practice just ahead of fellow Italian Valentino Rossi, and also the second practice for the top time Friday at Qatar's Losail International Circuit.

2018 Motorcycle Previews
For 2018, the unity between Jack Daniel's and Indian Motorcycle continues. Meet the 2018 Jack Daniel’s Limited Edition Indian Scout Bobber. The custom Scout Bobber pays homage to first responders, and is modeled off of Jack Daniel’s Fire Brigade.
For 2018, Royal Enfield has ventured into the popular adventure-touring market. Meet the 2018 Royal Enfield Himalayan, which will arrive in North America this April. The bike is equipped with a 411cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that produces a modest 25 horsepower.
Meet the 2018 Indian Chieftain Elite, which is highlighted by not only custom "Black Hills Silver paint" applied entirely by hand, but also the more powerful engine due to the optional Thunder Stroke 116 Stage 3 Big Bore Kit.
While this motorcycle is closely related to the Sportster Forty-Eight, the 2018 Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight Special is definitely its own motorcycle. Yes, it shares many major components with the standard Forty-Eight, but with Harley-Davidsons, the magic is in the details.
The 2018 Harley-Davidson Iron 1200 is a different king of Iron. Rather than copying the Iron 883, Harley-Davidson has rethought the brand with an interesting mix of styling cues. Look for a First Ride Review in the near future.
