AutoLeap says it will repair your lousy relationship with car shops

No one likes having to go the automotive repair shop. There’s little transparency into what happens after a car is dropped off, invoices are often little more than a series of illegible bullet points, and the experience often feels chaotic. AutoLeap, a six-month-old, Toronto-based startup that quietly raised $5 million in seed funding in September, thinks its team can figure out how to repair that broken experience by bringing car repair shops into the 21st century at long last. Its big idea is ...

Chevrolet Teases Bolt ‘EUV’ One Component at a Time

Chevrolet has issued a close-up shot of the Bolt EUV to maximize its marketing mileage ahead of the official debut. It looks like we’ll be seeing the “Electric Utility Vehicle” (crossover) delivered to us piecemeal as General Motors has already issued a darkened silhouette of the model’s exterior and a similarly shadowy peak of what’s […] The post Chevrolet Teases Bolt ‘EUV’ One Component at a Time appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Aprilia Plans on New ‘400’ Lineup Of Motorcycles

Smaller, Smaller! With the new Aprilia RS660 being such a huge success for the brand, sources state Piaggio is currently in the talks of bringing the market a lineup of 350-400cc Aprilia branded motorcycles.  Prior to the RS660, the Aprilia lineup started at the RS125 and immediately jumped to the RSV4 when it came to full fairing motorcycles. Of course, the brand had a few 800-900cc options sprinkled in with the addition of the Shiver and Dorsoduro; but neither of those motorcycles resembled a...

Is Your Honda Part of the Big Recall?

Rare Rides: A 1996 Infiniti J30, Luxury Sedan With a Heart of 300ZX (Part I)

The other day while we were reviewing the daringly spectacular first generation Q45, commenter SSJeep requested coverage of Infiniti’s other rear-drive sedan from the period, the J30. I thought Rare Rides already covered Infiniti’s mid-size offering, but it turned out I was remembering an installment of Buy/Drive/Burn. That means it’s time for J30. At launch, […] The post Rare Rides: A 1996 Infiniti J30, Luxury Sedan With a Heart of 300ZX (Part I) appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Perfect Ten: Unikat’s ten-speed CB900C café racer

The early 80s Honda CB900C is one of the most unusual bikes Honda ever made. It has a ten-speed gearbox: five ‘normal’ ratios and then a dual-range high/low selector, much like you’d find in a vintage Land Rover. It also has shaft drive adapted from the Goldwing, air-assisted forks and shocks that need to be pumped up with a bicycle pump, and a kerb weight of nearly 600 pounds. Most definitely not material for a café racer conversion then, unless your name is Grzegorz Korczak and you run Pola...

MV Agusta’s New Alpine Collaboration Superveloce Special Edition Sells Out in 24 Hours

110 Units  in 24 Hours We covered the unveiling of MV Agusta’s special collaborative project with automotive manufacturer Alpine earlier last week, and the release date has since come and passed. The new MV Agusta Special Edition Alpine Superveloce was limited to just 110 bikes, and in typical MV Agusta fashion all bikes sold out within 24 hours of the release. 5 million dollars in 24 hours, not bad.

Husqvarna Norden 901 Seen In Testing

The Sasquatch Effect: Is it Real, Or Not? The long-awaited Husqvarna Norden 901 has been spotted in the wild on some test rides, and we’re excited about it.  Husqvarna unveiled the concept for the ADV motorcycle way back in 2019 and has been pretty silent regarding its development and potential release since then. They promised it to be the motorcycle that would catapult the brand into the mainstream, as right now they are limited to their supermoto and motocross niches. Chances are, you’ve pro...
