Review: Riding the new Harley-Davidson Pan America

“I got to say, you’re looking older.”—Ellis “I am older.”—Sheriff Ed Tom Bell Amongst my Rushmore of cherished films, No Country For Old Men anoints the viewer with myriad lyrical gems and witticisms. The above exchange percolated to the front when, not five minutes into my arrival at Harley-Davidson’s press launch of their new Pan America 1250, an affable employee offered two-inch “Tall Risers” and a “Tallboy” seat. At 6’6” and having worked on the OEM side for numerous bike launches, this...

Biden Administration To Restore California’s Power In Setting Pollution Standards

DETROIT (AP/CBS13) — The Biden Administration is moving to reverse former President Donald Trump’s bid to end California’s ability to set its own automobile tailpipe pollution standards.

The change, if approved after the ag...

Like the vibrant Southwest community, VW hopes its version of the Taos will attract plenty of interested parties.

Vespa Celebrates 75 Years of Scooter Heritage

19 Million Scooters – 75 Years Vespa pretty much singlehandedly paved the way for modern-day scooters as we know them today. The Italian scooter manufacturer has just hit two very important milestones. The company has managed to successfully reach their 75th birthday, and even more importantly, have surpassed 19 million units sold. 19 million units is a lot of scooters.. Breaking that down means that the Italian company has managed to sell (on average) 250,000 units every single year for 3/4 of...

QOTD: Is the VW Taos a Worthy Successor to the Mk7 Golf?

Volkswagen has announced pricing for the 2022 Taos subcompact crossover, dialing things in at $24,190 for the base, front-wheel-drive version. The sum syncs up perfectly with the Golf hatchback the vehicle will effectively be replacing on the North American market (GTI excluded) and leaves us with some nagging questions about VW’s overall plan. Volkswagen is effectively killing […] The post QOTD: Is the VW Taos a Worthy Successor to the Mk7 Golf? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

This Four-Cylinder Boxster Spyder Is Only Available In China For Now

Porsche's four-liter mid-engine drop-top has been a massive international hit for the company. With a reactive naturally-aspirated engine, gobs of torque, a sublime chassis, and open air motoring, it's one of the best sports cars to ever leave the factory. For the Chinese market, Porsche's biggest market, it holds a problem, however. Under China's current automotive sales scheme, any car with an engine displacing between 3 and 4 liters is hit with a 42.12 percent tax. For that reason, the big n...

Porsche Is Celebrating 20 Years In China With This Special Edition 911 Turbo S

Mariko's electrical issues - resolved for now?

 So, as a review.  I was driving my Samurai in the vicinity of the Vermillion Cliffs National Monument in Arizona on March 27.  It was a light rain kind of day, so driving with headlights on, wipers going, heater going as it was a bit chilly.Everything went dead after a high pitched squealing noise as I pulled away from the gas station in Marble Canyon.  Long story short, I lost the fusible link and there were electrical shorts occurring even after replacing the fusible link.A shop in Page, AZ d...

Harley-Davidson to Get Hit with 56-percent EU Tariff

On Tuesday, Harley-Davison was happy to report a nine percent gain in sales in the first quarter of 2021. This was the first sign of success from HD’s Hardwire strategy coming together after it was announced by Jochen Zeitz, Harley-Davidson CEO. The strategy was to combat the American brand’s struggle as of late and a successful Q1 meant they were on the right track. This initial victory announcement was unfortunately drowned out by the European Union’s announcement to declare a 56-percent tari...

Bosch sees a place for renewable fuels, challenging proposed European Union engine ban

Bosch executives on Thursday criticized proposed EU regulations that would ban the internal combustion engine by 2025, saying that lawmakers “shy away” from discussing the consequences of such a ban on employment. Although the company reported it is creating jobs through its new businesses, particularly its fuel cell business, and said it was filling more than 90% of these positions internally, it also said an all- or mostly-electric transportation revolution would likely affect jobs. As a case ...
