In America, Italy, Race by Abhi3 Comments

Post-Listing Update: This Harley-Davidson RR350 was pulled from eBay, final sale price unknown. Built during the days when Harley owned Aermacchi, only 26 (or 37? I couldn’t pinpoint an exact number) of the Harley-Davidson RR350s were built – who knows how many are left. Most importantly, this is the only Harley that has ever won a Grand Prix event.

In Japan, Standard by Abhi0 Comments

The Suzuki GT750, affectionately known as the Water Buffalo, was the bike that made Suzuki a household name in the United States.  The follow-up to a sporty bike, Suzuki surprised (and disappointed) motorcycle magazines by instead marketing this as a sports-tourer.  Don’t tell anyone – Suzuki actually changed the intent of this bike because they were having reliability issues with …

One Mile – 1999 Bimota DB4 Tricolore

An adorable moped that was impressively produced from 1967-2006, the Piaggio Vespa Ciao was built to be cheap transportation for youngsters. Now I guess it’s a retro-mobile with style.
