Every year at Dakar, there’s always one day where everything goes nuts and falls apart for a bunch of top-placed riders. For the 2018 edition, that day was today. Matthias Walkner was the winner of the day – or at least, at time of writing, he was the stage winner – but the general madness started early […]

Kawasaki hints again at future three-wheeler

You probably don’t remember, but back at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, Kawasaki was hinting at a future street-legal three-wheeler, called the J Concept. Now, they’re teasing that machine again. We don’t see any real details in this video, just what appears to be CGI rendering. But it seems likely that Kawasaki is involved in […]

2018 Dakar: Stage 8

Photo: Flavien Duhamel/Red Bull Content Pool Going into Stage 8 of the Dakar, there were two big questions: Could Honda’s Joan Barreda stay in the rally, and would KTM turn up the heat?

How The Government Should Be Encouraging Motorcycle Use

The United States is spending billions on highways, railways, and roads to, ostensibly make it easier for Americans to get around. Even with all that spending, our infrastructure is nowhere near where it needs to be. But there’s another cheap solution that could ease traffic, parking, and wear on infrastructure: motorcycles. This country has yet to embrace mass-adoption […]
