Midsize Trucks: Here are the top three I'd buy

One problem I have with new, full-size trucks is that they're just needlessly oversized. I complain about that a lot, so my editor asked me to name the midsize trucks I'd buy instead. Find out what they are in my story at the National Post ( [Author: Jil McIntosh]

Two for Two: North East’s second run at the Multistrada

The first generation Ducati Multistrada is one of the under-appreciated gems of the custom world. It’s got a well-earned reputation as a bang-for-the-buck bike with ‘good bones’—mixing competent performance and handling with quirky looks. That Terblanche-penned aesthetic is admittedly an acquired taste, but luckily for us, a handful of custom builders have figured out how to fix it. The Coppiello brothers at North East Custom in Padua, Italy have cracked the code not once but twice. Their fir...

Carvana Conundrum

Pretty much doing anything during a global pandemic presents a unique set of problems no one could have possibly anticipated, especially when it comes to one of the largest purchases most of us will ever make-a car. Carvana seemed uniquely poised to take advantage of this sudden new world order that was thrust upon us. The question is, are they up to the challenge? Our story begins with my friend Kristin. Active in dog rescue and adoption services, Kristin needed a car with a lot of carg...

Honda Teases Us With 2021 CB1000R

Naked Liter Bikes Are Cool The CB1000R is to the CBR1000RR similarly as the FZ(MT)-10 is to the R1. They are both naked versions of the brand’s premiere liter race bikes featuring de-tuned engines and comfortable ergonomics suited for easier riding (or wheelies). 2020 CB1000R Honda touts this as a “Neo-Sport Cafe” styled motorcycle, but I’m going to cut through the fluff and call it a naked CBR1000RR going forwards. The 2020 edition of this motorcycle featured the 998cc inline-four engine...

HRC Offers Race Grom

Why Does Japan Get All the Cool Stuff? The grom may very well be one of the most customizable motorcycles out there. I’ve seen plenty of groms out in the wild and I’d be lying if I sad any of them were stock. Being such a great bike choice for hooligans and stunters alike, you can typically find them outfitted with crazy wheelie bars, custom headlight assemblies etc; much like what the Honda Ruckus community does with their rides. If you watch  MotoGP I’m sure you’ve heard of HRC. It’s Honda’s ...

REVIEW: The $65,000 Genesis GV80 SUV is a lavish chariot with an interior that puts the competition to shame

2021 Genesis GV80. Kristen Lee/Business Insider The 2021 Genesis GV80 is a brand-new, midsize luxury crossover from Genesis, Hyundai's luxury brand. The GV80 competes with the likes of the BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLE, and Acura MDX. The SUVs come with either a four-cylinder engine or a V6 and either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

No Update Expected Aprilia is coming out with new models and focusing on expanding its lineup, but two of its most interesting motorcycles may fall by the wayside. The Dorsoduro and Shiver 900 both could be on the chopping block due to emissions. The company has updated many of its motorcycles for Euro 5 compliance, but these two bikes don’t seem to be getting an update.  According to the German publication Motorrad, when Euro 5 emissions standards go into effect on January 1, 2021, Aprilia wil...

2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross: New Styling Cues Make it Look Less Like a Pontiac Aztek

You’ll see the 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross that is slated to roll into showrooms early next year has shed the bloated look that was somewhat reminiscent of an old gym shoe. The exterior design of this new Eclipse Cross is more akin to a pair of Nike Air Force 1s. It has a slimmer, sportier look, a more refined interior, and better tech. 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Powertrain Those are all positives, but the automaker primarily touts the eco-friendliness of this new Eclipse Cross, alt...
