Looking for the latest reviews on off-road and motocross motorcycles? We got all the deep insight right here, from the Honda CRF450R to the KTM 450 SX-F. We include both off-road and on-track MX tests.
With the 2018 Honda CRF450RX providing such a capable platform, we were excited for the opportunity to conduct a long-term test. Given the luxury of time, our project objective is to formulate the setups, seek out the upgrades, and discover the hacks to really create the ultimate do-anything dirt bike.
With the entrance of the Yamaha FX and X series of off-road racing motorcycles, Yamaha’s WRs can comfortably take a position as high-end trail bikes. Fortunately, Yamaha still sees the WR250F as an upgradable platform, and the 2018 Yamaha WR250F gets some serious updates
Riding the 2018 Yamaha YZ125 is everything we have come to expect out of a small displacement two-stroke, and that’s a good thing! With no major changes over the last several years, and having tested previous versions, we are pretty familiar with the YZ.
In the first segment this week I get to chat with one of the most energetic guys I’ve met in a long time. Adam Tromp is the Founding Partner at Iconic Motorbikes Auctions. Starting out as a reseller of collectible machines, Adam’s vision quickly turned Iconic into an online auction site …plus a whole lot more. I don’t want to spoil the story, so I’ll let him tell it in his own words, but suffice it to say that in a very short period of time, he and his partners have managed to turn Iconic Motorbike Auctions into a collector motorcycle sales powerhouse. Where’s it all going…and what’s next, I wonder…
In the second segment Editor Don Williams talks to me about the Benelli Leoncino. I’m not Italian and neither is he, so we’re not sure how it’s pronounced, but suffice it to say that this Italian designed, Chinese built 500cc parallel-twin engined motorcycle actually holds several surprises—perhaps not what you’d think.
I really enjoyed both of these topics, and I hope you do too!
