BMW S1000RR streetfighter: so wrong it's right

Guy Procter, 13 May 2011 16:36

Believe it or not, this is an S1000RR. No doubt some parts will make you laugh and others weep, but there’s no denying it's a really thorough desecration. As a lover of all eras of BMW, owner and builder Steve Culp was moved to give his bike a vintage makeover to make it comfortable for his ageing frame. We applaud ...

Meet the Narley – oh wait, they called it a Norley

Guy Procter, 05 May 2011 13:24

That most promiscuous of motorcycle frames, the Norton featherbed, has mated again – this time with a Harley. And it’s produced a handsome mongrel that’s for sale in aid of charity Curing Kids Cancer. Santiago Choppers' owner Alan Bernard built the bike using a 1200cc Harley Sportster engine installed in a Norton frame using the Café Racer style bodywork and ...

New Kawasaki ZX-10R gets mean (not green) makeover

Guy Procter, 01 April 2011 17:02

Kawasaki’s new ZX-10R may have lost the outright power battle with the BMW S1000RR and the handling scrap to Aprilia’s RSV4 APRC but it’s determined to walk away from the tussles head held high in the styling department. To that end Kawasaki USA’s taken the big Ninja to the ‘king of custom sportsbikes’ Robert Fisher, boss of Florida’s Roaring Toyz, ...

Radical Ducati strays into Guzzi waters

Guy Procter, 06 January 2010 16:59

Spanish Ducati modifiers par excellence Radical Ducati have strayed from the L-twin path to create this Moto Guzzi California-based behemoth. Eschewing subtlety with every atom of its being, the Dirt Guzzi is a dirt-track-inspired variant of a 2003 California 1100, with a new 2-into-1 exhaust system and Supertrapp silencer ensuring it sounds as bilious as it looks. The Ohlins shocks ...

Video: the coolest scooter you've ever seen

Guy Procter, 01 September 2009 09:26

We love the 172cc 2Evil dragster from French scooter tuning house MXS Custom. Here you can see it in action despatching the 150m scooter drag strip (and annihilating the competition) in a smidge under six seconds. Deeply impressive two-stroke lunacy.

Hear Harley-Ducati hybrid fire up

Guy Procter, 17 June 2009 13:51

You’re looking at an unholy union of Harley and Ducati. It’s called the Desmohog, and it mates 900SS heads with a Harley bottom end. It shouldn’t work, but genius hobbyist bike builder Chris Barber has made it work. The result sounds like a halfway-house between a Duke and a Harley – and we really, really dig it…
