Versatility is king with the Vulcan S. (Photos by Kevin Wing) When’s the last time you drove a car, van or truck with zero adjustability for the seat, steering wheel or foot controls? Yeah, that’s what we thought. Adjustable ergonomics are a must for such vehicles nowadays. So why are we saddled... Read more »

December 2, 2014

With its angular styling, flat-black paint and hints of polished steel set off by LED lighting, the NM4 seems right off a movie set—all that’s missing is the firepower. (Photos by Kevin Wing) Imagine for a moment that you’re a 20- or 30-something motorcycle designer in Japan, head swirling with... Read more »

2015 Yamaha FJ-09 – First Look Review

2015 Yamaha FJ-09

Rider Magazine Staff
November 4, 2014

The new FJ-09 should be perfect for fans of the in-line triple concept who want more sport-touring capability. Yamaha’s FZ-09 sport-standard triple is so popular that it’s unlikely a slight price increase for 2015 to $8,190 will have any negative effect on its sales. In fact, that popularity has... Read more »

April 4, 2014

The Z1000’s new styling is inspired by sugomi, a Japanese word for “the intense aura given off by an object of greatness,” and is meant to look like a crouching predator ready to pounce on its hapless prey. (Photos by Kevin Wing)   Though called a streetfighter, the Kawasaki Z1000 ABS, which... Read more »

New LED daytime running light surrounds the lowerof the two stacked headlights and increases daytime conspicuity; it can be switched off.

Victory’s interpretation of the bobber is aimed squarely at Harley’s Softail Slim. (Photos by Barry Hathaway) From its gray matte paint to its straight dual exhaust and solo seat, Victory Motorcycles’ new Gunner is brazenly targeting Harley-Davidson’s Softail Slim.

September 4, 2013

Flashback to 1970. Richard Nixon is in the White House, American troops are in Vietnam and the AMC Gremlin is in dealerships. Little known in the U.S. at the time, Moto Guzzi captures a slice of the lucrative police market with a full-dress version of the Eldorado 850, which was more powerful, more maneuverable,... Read more »

2013 Honda CB1100 Road Test

An admirable view from any perspective. The CB1100 was first offered in Japan and Australia as a 2010 model.

Take a look around your garage. Is there an old radio that’s been tuned to a classic rock station for as long as you can remember? A bunch of Craftsman tools crowding a few precious Snap-On items in an old toolbox covered with fading stickers from Bell, Bates, NGK, Torco, and S&W or Mulholland... Read more »

Mark Tuttle
June 4, 2013

Got your eye on a custom dresser, a “bagger,” eh? Can’t say I blame you. Stripped and slammed cruisers are so five years ago.
