2013 Suzuki RM-Z 450 Test As the old saying goes, “What wins on Sunday sells on Monday,” and on the 2013 Suzuki RM-Z, Davi Millsaps...

2013 Kawasaki KX250F | Motocross Review

2013 Kawasaki KX 250 F Test

The perfect motocross bike can vary greatly depending upon the rider.

2012 Yamaha TT-R110E Review

2012 Yamaha TT-R110E Review | Off-Road Motorcycle

Yamaha TT-R110E Motorcycle Test

When evaluating youth motorcycles, we have some very specific standards. For the 2012 Yamaha TT-R110E to be a success, it has to be durable, reliable, and easy to use. The subtleties of suspension and handling are important, of course, but this is a motorcycle for young learners, not racers.

2011 Kawasaki KX250F | Motocross Review

2011 KX250F Review

One could argue that the development of motocross bikes in the '00s proceeded at a less-than-rapid pace. Certainly, the bikes showed improvements, but we did not see the developmental leaps that we saw from the riders themselves, who continued to be quite innovative-Bubba Scrub, anyone?

2010 Yamaha YZ450F | Motocross Test

Yamaha YZF-450

The history of motocross is one replete with revolutionary designs, followed by consolidation and refinement of the dramatic motorcycle advances.

2009 KTM 250 XC-F | Motorcycle Test

Off-Road Racer, Supercrosser.

One might not expect a supercross-based bike to make a great woods machine, but KTM has pulled that trick off with the 250 XC-F. Utilizing KTM’s outstanding SX-F chassis and DOHC, 4-valve, e-start motor, the XC-F works as both a single-track race bike, as well as a high-end trail bike.

Costa Rica Adventure | Motorcycle Adventure

Freedom. It is the spirit that drives us to ride motorcycles, and we attain that feeling in ways as diverse as our choice of machines. Of course, freedom in highly organized societies can become a relative thing. Unless we are riding entirely on private property (and sometimes even then), we are restricted by laws governing our sport. Those on custom cruisers are limited by equipment regulations, sport riders by speed limits and off-roaders by land use restrictions.

2008 Yamaha WR250R and WR250X | Motorcycle Test

Science historian James Burke's 1985 BBC-TV documentary series, "The Day The Universe Changed", documented key moments in the development of science and technology, and their effects on our perception of the world. Had Burke issued an episode tracking pivotal points in motorcycling in the United States, the day the Yamaha DT-1 250cc Enduro was introduced 40 years ago certainly would have qualified.

2008 Kawasaki KLX450R | Off-Road Motorcycle Review

Manufacturers generally select premium locations and luxury accommodations when it comes time to introduce their newest addition to their line. We may travel to Monza in Italy, the Baviaanskloof in South Africa, the rain forest of Costa Rica, which is all well and good. Imagine my surprise when Kawasaki took me to the mile marker 11.5 on desolate Arizona state highway 74 in the Sonora Desert, up against the foothills of the Hieroglyphic Mountains. There, circled well-worn travel trailers awaited, which would be home for the duration.

2006 KTM 300 XC-W Review | Two-Stroke Test

Off-road riders who cut their teeth on dirt bikes in the mid-1960s have borne witness to the rise and fall from favor of the two-stroke. From Joel Robert's first FIM motocross championship in 1964 on a CZ to Suzuki-mounted Ricky Carmichael's AMA Supercross title in 2005, two-strokes ruled the premium series, earning their dominance the hard way—going head-to-head with the reignin thumpers of the era until they developed enough sophistication to be superior performers.
