Ultimate MotorCycling | March 2010

Available February 22, 2010

As the ‘09s give way to the ’10s, Ultimate MotorCycling dives head first into the glistening pool of new 2010 motorcycles in the March issue. Extended tests of the high-tech Honda VFR1200F (both automatic transmission version and the standard shift), and the personally customizable BMW S 1000 RR.

Mike Schulte take a long look at Dirico Motorcycles, partially owned by Steven Tyler of Aerosmith fame, and the custom company’s new Speedster. The first journalist to do so, Shawn M. Pickett guides the new Victory Cross Country from Austin to Los Angeles, absorbing both the riding experience and the culture of the Southwest.

More new 2010s are head from, with tests of the spectacular Aprilia RSV4 Factory, the no-nonsense Harley-Davidson Fat Boy Lo, Honda’s versatile NT700V sport / touring / commuting / you-name-it motorcycle, the completely re-done Kawasaki Z1000, and Vespa’s largest-displacement-ever GTS 300 Super.

Lovers of the exotic are never disappointed and in the March issue we have an exclusive cover bike: the Roland Sands Design Black Beauty. At the other end of the custom spectrum, David Morris considers the mind-boggling Millyard Viper V10.

And, as usual, we have a wide variety of tests–from the Leatt-Brace to the Olympus Stylus Tough-8000 digital camera to Harley-Davidson latest gloves.
