Zig when others zag: Niks’ custom BMW R80

There’s a definite formula for BMW airhead customs. A few years ago, European workshops like Café Racer Dreams in Madrid figured out the recipe, and refined it over multiple builds. But very occasionally the airhead formula is ditched. And this time it’s another Spanish workshop: Niks Motorcycles of Barcelona. This eye-catching R80 is called ‘Nightmare’ and discards the iconic BMW tank. Instead, the visual focus is on the engine, and the machine has an unusually light and airy design. Ther...

SPIED: Porsche Is Planning A Panamera Facelift

Photo credit: SpiedBilde Porsche's executive sports sedan, the 971-chassis Panamera, was introduced in 2016 as the first car to ride on the chassis Bentley now uses for the Flying Spur and Continental GT. It was the first car in the Porsche lineup to feature the now ubiquitous Porsche interior with touch-sensitive center console and wide sweeping dashboard displays.

2022 Hyundai Kona N: Hyundai Built a Fast Kona & It’s a Good One!

Hyundai spent the first few months of 2021 teasing its newest Kona N high-performance crossover. The beans were recently spilled on the 2022 Hyundai Kona N, and it’s everything we hoped for in a small, fast, and relatively affordable SUV. Hyundai’s N Line reminds me of the early days of BMW’s M and Mercedes-Benz’s AMG divisions, except for one thing: Hyundai N models (including the new Kona N) won’t cost an arm and a leg to enjoy the fun. “Kona N is a true hot SUV with the performance level o...

This week’s custom motorcycles come in all shapes and sizes—from a pint-sized flat tracker, to a stylish BMW R18. Plus we take a look at a tidy BSA bobber, and a Norton Atlas with a Harley-Davidson WLA motor. Jake Drummond’s Mini Tracker Jake Drummond has some rather crazy skills, but for his latest project, he went small, cheap and cheerful. This mini flat tracker took him three months to build and cost just $1,800, but it’s just as cool as any bike twice its size. Jake started with a 196...

Tokyo Drifter: A Yamaha XV750 street tracker from Japan

Nihira-san runs Wedge Motorcycle, one of the top Japanese custom shops.

Giving EV batteries a second life for sustainability and profit

Electric cars and trucks seem to have everything going for them: They don’t produce tailpipe emissions, they’re quieter than their fossil fuel-powered counterparts and the underlying architecture allows for roomier and often sleeker designs. But the humble lithium-ion battery powering these cars and trucks leads a difficult life. Irregular charging and discharge rates, intense temperatures and many partial charge cycles cause these batteries to degrade in the first five to eight years of use, an...
