1989 Honda Transalp 650

In Dual-Sport, Japan by AbhiLeave a Comment

The Honda Transalp XL600V was a dual-sport that was truly ahead of its time. A slightly less off-road biased cousin of the Honda Africa Twin, the Transalp was first released in 1987. This was one of the odder bikes that Honda ever sold – truly a jack of all trades sort of bike. The US only got the Transalp between …

2004 BMW R1100S Boxer Cup Replika

In Germany, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

Post Sale Update: After 12 bids on eBay, this BMW sold for $6,500. Before BMW took the motorcycling world by storm with the S1000RR, their idea of a sportbike was to put aggressive bodywork around the trusted boxer engine to create the BMW R1100S. I don’t mean to sound demeaning with that, as I owned a R11S for a while …

In Germany, Off-Road by AbhiLeave a Comment

Maico’s 450 (displacing a true 438cc) was an Open-class monster that was enjoyed by many riders in Southern California’s hard-packed dirt.

The 1995 Honda CBR900RR doesn’t get as much love from fans as the first generation, even though it’s an improved bike. This specific example stands out because it comes with the cheeky “Urban Tiger” paint job that wasn’t available in the US. The seller tells a story that 200 bikes were accidentally brought to Canada, which is why this example …
