VIDEO: How Yamaha Developed The 2021 MT-09’s Sound

Looks Strange, Sounds Great! That awfully strange exhaust found on the new MT-09 has some real-world functionality; Yamaha didn’t make it ugly on purpose and this video will explain why. On first impressions, it may seem like Euro 5 updates might have killed the legendary MT-09 exhaust and engine scream, but Yamaha wants to assure you that is not the case. The gear teeth on the newly updated engine have been made thinner to reduce engine noise at low revs. I own the 2015 version of this engine,...

An ice-cool R1200S street tracker from Winterless Craft

A few months ago, we introduced you to Winterless Craft, one of the few custom workshops in the Republic of Korea. Owner Tae Hyeong Ha had just scored a major coup, getting his S&S Shovelhead into the famous Mooneyes Show in Japan. He’s now just finished a BMW R1200S that won’t be going anywhere in the current climate—but we like it even more. This Beemer looks even tastier than a spicy bowl of bibimbap. It’s based on a 2009 R1200S, which was the most powerful BMW sportbike you could buy...
