Why Today Should be the Day You Get a Dashcam

Many vehicles on the roads in 2021 are equipped with dashcams either from the factory or aftermarket. A dashcam is a camera that is mounted on a vehicle’s dashboard to capture video and audio of any event – big or small – on your travels. Should an accident occur, a dashcam can mean the difference between a terrible “he said, she said” situation and provide the facts surrounding the event. As you know, motorcycles do not have dashboards per se, but in recent years, technology has evolved to give...

Kaspeed gives the Ducati Supersport 750 a second wind

Some would say the 750 SS was not Ducati’s finest hour. The podgy, plasticky styling has always been divisive, and the engine is rated at a somewhat underwhelming 65 hp. But this Duc is light—a mere 403 pounds (183 kg) dry—and the handling is good on smooth asphalt. The trellis frame is a work of art, the Brembo brakes are well up to the job, and the Supersport is easy to ride compared to most Ducatis of its era. Best of all, you can now pick up a mint 750 for less than $5,000 in the US if lu...

Triumph’s Trident 660 Arrives On Indian Shores

The Final Piece to the Asian Market Puzzle In the short amount of time that the Trident has been available for purchase, it has already cemented itself as a brand favorite when it comes to riders seeking an intermediate motorcycle manufactured by a British OEM. The Trident’s sales have been steady – meaning the naked 660cc gamble paid off for Triumph – and as a result, Triumph is sending it over to India’s difficult market to see how it fairs. The Indian market is a very difficult segment to en...

2022 Mercedes-Benz CLS: Styling Updates, Powertrain Specs, New Tech Features & More

If you’re old enough to remember, the first-gen Mercedes-Benz CLS is to blame for the swoopy-roof styling we’re all seeing in modern sedans and crossovers. In short, the CLS is responsible for kickstarting the “four-door coupe” movement. Launched in 2004 and riding on E-Class underpinnings, the CLS is a more stylish alternative to the former while retaining E-Class levels of luxury and prestige. 2022 Mercedes-Benz CLS: Updated Styling The Mercedes CLS has always been a thing of beauty, b...
