Original Owner – 1975 Triumph Trident T160

In England, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

Classic British Motorcycles notes that the Trident was doomed by “the combination of bad timing (it …

In Italy, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

The DB6 Delirio was a naked standard with styling unlike any other Bimota.

To celebrate Italy’s win in the 2006 World Cup, Bimota created a limited edition called the …

In Italy, Less than 5k, Standard by AbhiLeave a Comment

Phillipe Starck is a well-known French product designer and motorcycle enthusiast. In the mid 90’s, he combined those two facets to design the Aprilia Moto 6.5, an in-town runabout that oozes style – but is it the kind of style you like?

1984 Suzuki GS1150EF

In Japan, Less than 5k, Sport by Jeffrey PamerLeave a Comment

Before that, the company strictly made two-stroke machinery, and were the last of the Japanese manufacturers to begin producing 4-stroke engines. They patterned, a nice way of saying borrowed, their 4-cylinder engine from Kawasaki, more specifically the Z1 900. Kawasaki separated themselves …

In England, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

A 650cc high-compression variant of the Huntmaster, the Ariel Cyclone was a very rare bike. It seems that the list of documented Cyclones is 174 over two years of production. Ariel called it their “Super Sports Twin”, thanks to a 40 horsepower engine that was an option on the Huntmaster.

2000 Suzuki SV650

In Japan, Less than 5k, Sport by Jeffrey PamerLeave a Comment

Has there ever been a more universally loved bike that the Suzuki SV650? The more I immerse myself into the motorcycling community, I really wonder. This is all subjective of course, but there really isn’t a lot to complain about with the SV. It came along and dominated the mid-sized bike market in 1999. Even if you don’t love it, …
