KTM Announces 790 Adventure and 790 Adventure R Pricing

Looking for an Expensive Adventure? You get what you pay for. KTM recently announced pricing for its 790 Adventure and 790 Adventure R.

Café Express: Freeride’s Montesa Cota 247 cafe racer

If you’ve ridden a two-stroke, you’ll know how addictive the power rush (and sound) can be. So we have a soft spot for anything that smells pungent and goes braaap—especially if it’s got a bit of history and a side order of style.

Its Cota 247 model was also popular with trials riders—but who’d have thought a trials bike would make a great little ...

Could Royal Enfield Build a 650 Version of the Himalayan?

Bigger Engine, More Adventure The Royal Enfield Himalayan currently comes with a 411cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine. While that’s sufficient for many riders around the world, rumor is Royal Enfield is thinking of a 650 Himalayan.
