2000 Bimota SB8R

In Italy, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

Reader Zack B. sent this to me saying that as a TLR guy, he loves this bike. And for good reason! Powered by the TL’s wonderful V-Twin (but then pumped up to 133 horsepower by the Italians), this bike was capable of hitting 170mph. You also got top notch components such as an Ohlins shock, Paioli forks, Brembo brakes, and …

1990 Honda NS50F

In Japan, Small Displacement by AbhiLeave a Comment

A one year only model in the states, the Honda NS50F is a legitimate motorcycle despite it’s tiny stature. Capable of 55-65 (depending on the weight of the rider), this bike is easily hopped-up with aftermarket parts from companies like Team Calamari. You’ll also enjoy a six-speed transmission and front and rear drum brakes to slow down this light bike. …

REV’IT Urban Collection Preview at Beach Moto

In Blog by Abhi2 Comments

I’m ashamed to confess that when I first heard about REV’IT, something about the name made me think it was a cheap in-house brand from a store like Cycle Gear. It wasn’t until I went on a group adventure camp/ride to Death Valley and I saw nearly 50% of the riders with REV’IT suits that I realized I had made …

1980 Ducati 900SS

In Italy, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

This is a beautiful, relatively original example of a classic Ducati offered by a seller who gives great details, never overstates, and is very knowledgeable about his bike. That’s a great combination, which also means that the selling price won’t be cheap. There’s actually another 900SS available on eBay right now, but I believe this one stands out thanks to …

You might have read the title to this post and thought, “what the hell is an XRV?” Back in 1989, it’s what Cycle World thought Harley should be offering straight from the floor.

In Dual-Sport, England by Abhi3 Comments
