How Ford is Bringing Back the Small Pickup

Small pickups aren’t so small anymore. The trucks we today consider mid-size have dimensions that aren’t far off the smallest full-size trucks from the 1990s. Enter Ford. And soon, Hyundai. While the Santa Cruz may be the star of the moment, thanks to finally being shown in the flesh after a long tease, the Ford […] The post How Ford is Bringing Back the Small Pickup appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Today’s adventure bike market is a little like the superbike market in the 80s; to quote Fall Out Boy, “It ain’t a scene, it’s an arms race.” ADV bikes are pushing north of 150 hp and 500 lbs, with eye-watering levels of tech packed in.

Royal Enfield designed the Himalayan to be simple and affordable, with an air-cooled 411 cc single, and little more than ABS on the tech side. So it’s basically the antithesi...

Yamaha Builds 475 Horsepower Electric Motor – Could This Be the Beginning Of a Yamaha EE Future?

Phase Two, Complete This week, Yamaha pulled the covers on their newly developed (in-house) electric motor that produces a stunning 475 horsepower. For context, the brand new 2021 Chevrolet Corvette produces around the same power figures (490), but this mighty little electric engine is quite literally a fraction the size of the 6.2L V8 found cramming the engine bay of that new budget supercar. Although 475 horsepower is about four times too much power for your everyday motorcycle, this could sp...
