Review Video My Shortest Review Ever Cameron Martel, my colleague, friend and manager here at WBW likes to tease me about how I always seem to find a way to overanalyze, overcomplicate and over-write every review while taking too long to get to the point. I’ll own that. Yes, I’m naturally a bit of a mad scientist gearhead with an insatiable curiosity and a bad habit of sharing everything I learn about a product. If that’s wrong… I don’t want to be right. This review is perhaps the best...

Ford Mustang Mach 1 Could Return in 2021

Not Everyone Drove Away With a Low-interest Loan in March

We told you yesterday how zero-interest financing exploded in popularity in the final two weeks of March, as governments everywhere belatedly clamped down and automakers had to pull out all the stops to lure frightened buyers out of their homes. Despite many would-be buyers not taking the bait, for some, zero-percent/84-month loans proved as irresistible […] The post Not Everyone Drove Away With a Low-interest Loan in March appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Watch This 360-Degree Video of Marc Marquez Riding the CBR1000RR-R

Marquez and the Fireblade While the Coronavirus has messed up a lot of what’s going on in the world and caused millions of people to shelter inside their homes, Honda is keeping on keeping on. The company recently released a very entertaining video of Marc Marquez riding the CBR1000RR-R around the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya for a lap.  Marquez doesn’t seem as comfortable on the Fireblade as he does on his racing bike, but I would suspect the motorcycles are really pretty different. Also, th...

The Honda ADV150 Will be Available in June and Cost $4,299

What You Get When You Cross an Africa Twin With a PCX Scooters have never been a big favorite in the U.S. They’ve always played second fiddle to motorcycles, and are even sometimes looked on with disdain from motorcycle riders. This is, of course, silly of anyone who rides, and the Honda ADV150 is here to prove that scooters can be fun, practical, and even kind of bad-ass.
