Get An Onboard View Of Valentino Rossi's Dirt Endurance Race Win

Get An Onboard View Of Valentino Rossi's Dirt Endurance Race Win

It’s pretty much impossible to debate that Valentino Rossi is an unmatched talent when it comes to two-wheeled competition. The guy is a master of traction management, and this massive talent came in handy on his way to sharing victory with Luca Marini at the recent 100km Tavullia race in Italy. Fifty laps of a 2 kilometer dirt course, complete with a Le Mans-style start and a rider change.

The Future Of Motorcycles Is Powered Bicycles

The Future Of Motorcycles Is Powered Bicycles

Motorcycles are great. Sometimes, when the weather is beautiful, the road is winding, and the traffic is non-existent, I think bikes might even be better than cars. But motorcycles are also expensive, dangerous, too powerful, not all that great for the environment, and occasionally incredibly out of touch with buyers. The motorcycle industry is going through a phase of change right now and...

The Amazing Motorcycle Stunt From The No Time To Die Teaser Was Unbelievably Done For Real

The first trailer for the upcoming James Bond movie, No Time To Die, will be released Wednesday morning, but the little 15-second teaser reel that came out last night already features one incredible motorcycle stunt that was mostly done for real.

No Time To Die is the fifth and supposedly final James Bond movie for Bond actor Daniel Craig. It also happens to feature more notable vehicles than...

Let Me Ride The Hasty Flaming Buffalo

Let Me Ride The Hasty Flaming Buffalo

It is rare that a custom motorcycle tickles my fancy quite like the “Hasty Flaming Buffalo” here has. I am an absolute sucker for simplicity, motorsport inspiration, and old school cues. And this bike from LM Creations has all of that and absolutely nothing else. It is ostensibly a visual recreation of a 1910-era Indian board track racer, but with a modern Scout V-twin and lots of modern...

MotoGP Rider On Retirement: ‘Is It Really Worth It To Keep Suffering?’

Three-time MotoGP champion Jorge Lorenzo has announced his shock retirement following the completion of this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix. After a series of crashes, Lorenzo asked at his press conference, “is it really worth it to keep suffering?” Lorenzo has decided what many other riders haven’t: no, it isn’t.

Lorenzo has been a fan-favorite driver in his 11-year tenure as a MotoGP rider....

Indian Just Threw Down The Gauntlet In The V-Twin Power Wars

Indian Just Threw Down The Gauntlet In The V-Twin Power Wars

It’s fair to say that Harley-Davidson is pretty proud of its Milwaukee Eight V-twin engine, especially in its most potent form, the 117 cubic-inch monster reserved for only its highest echelon bikes. Indian Motorcycles just fired a shot across the bow of the Wisconsin cruiser bike juggernaut today with the official launch of the PowerPlus engine. This 108 cubic inch overhead cam watercooled...

The 2020 Harley-Davidson Low Rider S is the kind of black-and-chrome evil animal a lot of people think of when they imagine what a good Harley might look like. But really, it looks good because it’s not trying too hard.

H-D introduced the West Coast-style Low Rider S in 2017 on the now-defunct Dyna chassis. The...

Somehow I Didn't Die On This Stupid Motorcycle Trip

Somehow I Didn't Die On This Stupid Motorcycle Trip

As I rode down a dark, wet I-95 getting blown past by buses and tractor-trailers Sunday night, I just kept thinking how I didn’t want to die in a hoodie with “Clickbait” written across it in varsity letters, covered by an Alpinestars jacket.

I mean, can you imagine the headlines?

I was a little over halfway through the first part of my trip Saturday morning when I first noticed a small amount...

MotoGP Rider Marc Marquez Miraculously Unhurt After Terrifying Crash

MotoGP Rider Marc Marquez Miraculously Unhurt After Terrifying Crash

Marc Marquez had one hell of a crash during FP1 ahead of the Thailand Grand Prix. He lost the rear of his bike heading into turn seven during the last ten minutes of the session and was subsequently launched into the air. Somehow, he managed to make it out okay.

Marquez was taken to the hospital after FP1 to ensure that he was actually completely fine. An MRI didn’t show anything terribly...

Comment Of The Day: Mass Tragedy Edition
Comment Of The DayYour good comments.  

The year is 2093. All gasoline motorcycles have been replaced by electric. What was once the savior of the two-wheeled rider has been rendered obsolete, and along with it, our safety. We no longer have the healing salve of the doppler effect to alert other motorists to our presence, all motorcyclists have died. Without loud pipes, how shall we save our...

Jalopnik ReviewsAll of our test drives in one convenient place.  

The 2020 Zero SR/F fires up in total silence—it’s a trip. There’s no exhaust rumble or clattering pistons, just a few lights on the TFT dash. “Are you sure it’s on,” more than one person asked. But when you twist the throttle, you finally hear something. And more importantly–you feel something.

One thing that’s so exciting about...

Here's What To Do After A Motorcycle Crash

Here's What To Do After A Motorcycle Crash

You see it in a flash as you round the blind corner on the twisty mountain road—the cloud of dust, your friend’s bike jammed under the guardrail, and they’re lying on their back in the middle of the road, not moving. Your first thought is, “Wow, that’s a bad crash.” Your second thought is, “What the hell do I do now?”

Most motorcycle crashes don’t involve injuries except to the riders’ pride,...

Build A Motorcycle From The Scraps Laying Around Your Garage

Build A Motorcycle From The Scraps Laying Around Your Garage

There comes a sense of pride unlike any other when you manage to build something awesome from scratch in your garage. This “motorcycle” started as a pile of scrap steel, some bearings, an industrial engine, a set of car wheels, and a bike seat. Using some craftiness and ingenuity, this Doctor DS guy managed to become a motorcycle manufacturer, using nothing but a pile of largely useless...

The Honda Africa Twin Helped Me Conquer My Fear Of Tall Bikes
Jalopnik ReviewsAll of our test drives in one convenient place.  

I love adventure touring bikes . Honestly, it’s mostly because they just look so damn cool! They’re modular, look like they can go from like Tierra del Fuego to Nova Scotia, and are usually quick as hell. But for a medium-sized boy like myself, they are often intimidatingly tall.

I’ve been riding regularly on my Moto Guzzi V7 in...

I Will Sell You My Kidneys For This 1914 Indian Board Track Motorcycle

Board track racing is one of the most fascinatingly terrifying forms of motor racing, but I never thought it would actually be feasible to get my hands on one of the beautiful machines that actually competed. But now that one has popped up on Mecum, I would be more than happy to trade my organs for anyone who would be so kind as to purchase it for me.

Motorcycle board racing was a big deal...
