New Kawasaki ZX-10RR Spotted at Winter Testing In Jerez

Face Yourself Here we are… It’s 2021 and the ancient ZX-10R/RR is finally getting a facelift. 2021 should be called ‘the year of the facelift’ because it really is insane how many manufacturers jumped at the Euro 5 opportunity to breathe some new life into their neglected bikes. The ZX-10RR has been quite neglected indeed. Earlier this month, I covered some spy shots of what appeared to be the updated ZX-10R, but today the official WorldSBK Yamaha Racing Team posted a teaser video of the ZX-10R...

The nascent automated vehicle technol...

Hot Rod: A Californian Honda CB700SC Nighthawk restomod

Everyone knows and loves the iconic Honda CB750, but have you heard of the Honda CB700SC Nighthawk? Honda marketed it in the US from 1984 to 1986, as an answer to the infamous 1983 tariff. But it was a pretty rad motorcycle in its own right, too. In a bid to help Harley-Davidson, the US slapped a 45% import tariff on all foreign motorcycles over 700 cc. The CB700SC’s 696 cc inline-four meant it could sneak under the limit, and it still made a respectable 80 hp and 61 Nm. It also had a shaft d...
