The Southwestern Sojourn - Day 14 & 15 Travel Days

Dec 11Didn't do any riding, just broke camp and left the Gunsite Wash BLM area near Why AZ and headed north on AZ Hwy 85.Filled up the propane tank (6.7 gal) in a gas station in Ajo, AZ and then just motored up to I-10 to head west towards Quartzsite.  I didn't go all the way there, as I decided to stop at a RV park called Snowbirds West, located to the north of the junction of I-10 and exit 69.  Not much else there, though apparently the area is named Centennial.The RV park is very "rustic".  N...

Gap-filler: Cadillac to Debut XT6 in Detroit

It’s no wonder the Cadillac brand is having a rocky time of late — the marque fields only two crossovers, and one of those, the XT4, only reached lots at the end of September. Having pledged to return its headquarters to its ancestral homeland of Detroit, Cadillac also plans to unveil a new vehicle there […] The post Gap-filler: Cadillac to Debut XT6 in Detroit appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Would You Drive This Vintage Aston Martin EV?

Take your favorite classic car and fit it with a modern EV powertrain. That’s exactly what Aston Martin has done with a 1970 DB6 MkII Volante. The reversible “cassette” powertrain concept is still sympathetic to the original car. Aston Martin’s Heritage models are now part of their overall electrification strategy. Here’s a lovely idea, and I mean that both figuratively as well as literally. Take a cool old car, in this case an Aston Martin 1970 DB6 MkII Volante, take out the old drivetrain, ...

Headlights Still Largely Suck, Just Not As Much As Last Year

A collective groan must have echoed through the automotive industry a couple of years back, after the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety began testing headlight performance. Early results showed that most headlights, even those on expensive vehicles, fell well short of optimal performance. Most fell short of acceptable performance. Since then, improvements have begun — […] The post Headlights Still Largely Suck, Just Not As Much As Last Year appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Could KTM Buy Ducati? KTM’s CEO Thinks So

The Austrians Gaze Lovingly at the Italians In an interview with the German website Speedweek, Stefan Pierer, the CEO of KTM, said he would be interested in Ducati to continue KTM’s current positive momentum. Pierer discussed Ducati as a possibility after being asked if KTM could continue to compete with its twin-cylinder engine or if it’ll have to go with more cylinders and larger displacement. He said a three-cylinder engine would be possible if KTM’s partner Bajaj bought Triumph. Bajaj has e...

Will the Suzuki Hayabusa Live On?

The King is Dead, Long Live the King—We Hope After nearly 20 blistering fast years, Suzuki will end production of its GSX-1300R Hayabusa. Why, you ask? It’s certainly not for lack of demand. It’s due to the stringent Euro 4 emissions standards, which to me sounds like a pretty silly reason to say goodbye to this legendary motorcycle. When the Hayabusa first hit the road in 1999 it was a revelation, a 194 horsepower monster at the peak of the motorcycle speed wars. After it and subsequent effort...
