MV Agusta Motorcycles | Motorcycling Legacy

Meccanica Verghera Agusta

Refinement becomes a legend. Anyone who has experienced Michelangelo's Pieta immediately recognizes the will of extraordinary talent to refine its potential and achieve the ultimate result. In the presence of legends, one needs do little except marvel, and learn with delight and humility. When the legends are motorcycling's greatest racers and their warhorses, one understands how they transcend time.

Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14 | Motorcycle Review

Ninja ZX-14 

As with all bikes manufactured since the dawn of motorcycling history, Kawasaki's new Ninja ZX-14 accelerates when the rider applies throttle. However, unlike any mass-produced bike before it, the ZX-14 produces horsepower that has been measured within a few clicks of the 200 mark when ram air is in effect, essentially making it the fastest motorcycle on the market, at the moment.

2007 Ducati SportClassic GT1000 | Motorcycle Review

Torrid Motorcycle Romance

Classic beauty compels the discarding of facile thoughts.

The interlacing of traditional Ducati DNA with a 21st century perspective is embodied in the new SportClassic GT1000.

Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R | Review

ZX-10R Review

What does the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R have in common with Spinal Tap? Although clearly not a motorcycle numbers man in the purest sense, Nigel Tufnel of Spinal Tap clearly understood that more really can be much more. When he said, “If we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do? [We] put it up to eleven.” he could well have been talking about Kawasaki's new Ninja ZX-10R, such is the awesome capability of this year's new, more refined machine.

Benelli Cafe Racer & Sport TNTs | Review

Rebirth: Benelli Motorcycles

How brilliantly audacious for legendary Italian manufacturer Benelli, resuscitated from the brink of dissolution just a few years ago, to blast back onto the scene with an all-new machine bearing the sinfully appropriate TNT nomenclature. It is a bold statement born from a company that, since its inception in 1911, has endured a tale of exalted success and melancholic near ruin.

Honda CBR1000RR Review

2006 Honda CBR1000RR Review: Superbike at Buttonwillow

Switch Blade

From its introduction in 2004, Honda's CBR1000RR (labeled in Europe as the “Fireblade”) has always been a light, agile machine with astounding acceleration. In normal street riding and occasional track excursions, the bike produced far more performance than most of us could fully tap, but somehow it was tamed into a real-world package. Make no mistake, this weapon astonished, and delighted all but the most battle-hardened veteran of the superbike wars.

Testastretta Monster

The Spanish Andalusian countryside is an endless rhythm of hills, ancient trees and bleached medieval cities—possibly one of the last places one would expect to establish a world-class racetrack. Yet, after months of searching, Dutch racing enthusiast Klaas Zwart, a resident of Marbella, discovered the future home of his Ascari Race Resort while piloting a Eurocopter 130 above the virgin terrain just outside of Ronda.
