Sleeper: A stealthily upgraded Triumph Street Twin

We’re all for extreme machines that draw a crowd when parked up, but we also love ‘sleeper’ customs—those that keep their performance potential under wraps. At first glance, this Triumph from Amsterdam looks like a regular Street Twin with a mild retro makeover. But it’ll probably get its rider from A to B faster than any other Street Twin in Europe, thanks to a heavily reworked engine and big suspension upgrades. It belongs to sculptor Ram Katzir, whose work is shown all over the world—fr...

2022 Volkswagen Tiguan – Refreshed CUV to Arrive… Eventually

Volkswagen just revealed the new Tiguan. For next year. Why did the brand take the virtual wraps off the refreshed version of the Tiguan a year and a half before it goes on sale here, as a 2022 model? Because Europe gets it first. It goes on sale there “shortly.” Might as well just gather […] The post 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan – Refreshed CUV to Arrive… Eventually appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Even better than the real thing: Two ‘new’ BSA trackers

In the annals of dirt track history, one of the most famous race bikes is the BSA Trackmaster. Dirt fans will know that it was campaigned by the charismatic but crash-prone Dave Aldana, who also featured in the movie On Any Sunday. In 1970 Aldana was beaten to the Grand National title by Gene Romero, but fifty years later, there are still plenty of folks who remember the BSA he raced. The classic BSA ‘Trackmaster’ even has fans in Europe, and some of the most passionate are to be found in ...

European Ford drivers could save up to $670 as marque makes some connected features free

In a move that’s surely going to please new Ford owners, the American carmaker has made its connected car features free for European owners — putting them on the same terms as US drivers. It’s quite common these days for new cars to come with a host of “internet connected” features that can be controlled through an associated app. Things like remote unlocking, car start, and diagnostic checks can be performed using a vehicle’s app, but the tech doesn’t always come for free.

Maxxed Out: Yamaha TMAX 500 by Unikat Motorworks

Folks who ride motorcycles today often started out on scooters, especially in Europe. But Maciej Bielawski of Poland did it the other way round. “I’ve been riding motorbikes since I was a child, starting in the 80s,” he tells us. “But then I switched to scooters. Why? Because they’re easy, especially in the city where I live.” We can see his point. Some modern maxi-scooters offer motorcycle levels of performance, but with tons of extra convenience—especially for touring or city commuting. ...
