Balance is for losers. Any bike that’s “well-rounded” or has “broad appeal” is purpose built to be bad at everything. That’s been the sad truth about dual-sport bikes since the invention of the license plate. Thankfully, there are people in key places at major motorcycle factories who have come to understand that. The new crop […]

It’s getting to be a bit silly what’s passing for a lightweight sportbike these days. In the beginning, it made sense: You had the Kawasaki Ninja 250. And, well, that was it. It only took twenty-odd years, but the other manufacturers eventually took notice that building small bikes to entice new or returning riders was […]

It’s that time to take all 4 of our 125 two strokes and put them head to head. TM, Yamaha, Husqvarna and KTM were all thrown on to the track out at Cahuilla MX Park to getting a running order on which machine was the top performer. While each bike has its own unique qualities […]

Cruisers have always been about the essence of motorcycling, stripping motorcycles down to their core: an engine, a seat, a pair of wheels and little else. Naturally, when thinking about the essential elements of motorcycling, thoughts of the open road come to mind. The dream of packing just what you need on your bike and […]

What does adventure mean to you? Wait, let me narrow that down: What does adventure motorcycling mean to you? Maybe your idea of adventure on a motorcycle is setting out, destination unknown with nothing but a paper map and the Blue Highways to guide you. Or maybe, to you, adventure means setting out across the […]

The 2016 Yamaha YZ85 is mostly the same bike that is was in 2003 but it did get newly designed bodywork in 2015. This is the only bike of the two-strokes that does not have a powervalve (a mechanical device to effectively change the exhaust’s expansion chamber volume based on rpm), so it lacked bottom […]

If we got a dime every time we were asked what to buy as a first bike, we could easily buy a Kawasaki Ninja 300, Honda CBR500R or Kawasaki Ninja 650, three bikes we feel are best suited to answer the query. The truth is, there isn’t a simple answer anymore. Height, weight, natural ability, […]

Recently, we here at Motorcycle.com brought you one of our biggest tests to date, in the form of our 2014 Middleweight Mash-Up Six-Way Shootout. In it, we wrangled six bikes with minimal or non-existant fairings, and put them to the test. But not every rider out there wants a naked bike. Some would prefer the […]

Suzuki defined the modern sportbike in 1985, practically creating the superbike class along the way with its GSX-R750, surrounding it with 600cc and 1000cc siblings to comply with racing regulations. The brilliance of that decision has now been realized, as Italy has decided to play in between the 600cc and 1000cc bookmarks. Both Ducati’s 899 […]
