Estoril: A radical Moto Guzzi Le Mans from Portugal

For most custom motorcycle builders, their creations are like their children: it’s impossible to pick a favorite. But sometimes there’s one project that stands out. For Luis Correia and his team at Maria Motorcycles in Portugal, it’s this immaculate Moto Guzzi Le Mans cafe racer. Luis is proud of how it turned out, as he should be, not least because Maria’s 37th project was a mammoth undertaking. “Unlike everything else we’ve done so far,” he says, “it was a lengthy and complex process, jam-p...

The City of Milan, Italy Receives Fleet of MV Agusta Turismo Veloce Police Bikes

The Story of the Italian Exotic Polizia Milan, Italy is a pretty ‘Italian’ place. Especially taking into account that the city council just obtained a small fleet of MV Agusta Turismo Veloces to add to the ranks. That means if you get pulled over doing 10 over the speed limit, there’s a chance that you might be chased down by a brand new exotic Italian motorcycle… How fun. Navigating the tightly knit streets of Italy can prove difficult, and that’s where the city’s Nibbo Motorcycle Unit really...

Enjoy This Gallery of The New Maserati F Tributo Ghibli & Levante

Maserati is a racing brand, and they are paying homage to that with these new F Tributo Special Edition vehicles. Perhaps not surprisingly, the “F” stands for Fangio, as in Juan Manuel Fangio. Here’s a quick backstory to go with this photo gallery of Maserati F Tributo vehicles. Fast Cars, Fearless Drivers Maserati made its racing debut 95 years ago in April of 1926 at the Targa Florio. Alfieri Maserati won the 1,500 cc class that year piloting the Tipo 26, the first race car to displa...

Dream Team: An eye-popping Ducati Scrambler flat tracker

Paint is the last thing that happens on a custom job, but it’s the first thing that people notice. And the livery on this race-ready Ducati Scrambler is unmissable. A zany combination of blue, magenta and reflective silver, it’s about as subtle as a Tarantino flick. Built in Italy, this Scrambler is the product of a collaboration between Samy Garage and Greaser Garage. Samy Garage is the moniker for flat track racer Sami Panseri, who spins spanners in his home garage about 25 miles outside Mi...

Check Out Benelli’s New 302R Entry-Level Sportbike

A Much Needed Update Chinese manufacturer Benelli has been hard at work since being reborn in the early 2000’s after a long absence from the motorcycle world. Although the design work is mainly done in Italy, the bikes have been exclusively manufactured in China. Qianjiang Group (the owner of Benelli), began the brand’s invasion into American markets last year, and now they have a replacement for the older 302R that will hopefully make its way to American shores shortly. The updated 302R brings...

Seaside Scoot: Nicola Manca’s custom Honda Helix

I’ve only visited Sardinia once, but it was enough for the Mediterranean island to leave an indelible mark on me. Loaded with scenic mountains and beaches, and with more twisty roads than you can shake a stick at, it’s a motorcyclist’s paradise. And it’s the perfect backdrop for this quirky, surfboard-carrying moped. We had trouble placing exactly what make and model it is—until the builder, Nicola Manca, filled us in. It’s actually a 1980s Honda CN250: a stretched scooter with 80s jet ski st...

The Best Motorcycles of the 1940s

The 1940s was a particularly turbulent decade in world history, dominated by the Second World War causing widespread destruction all over the globe. As the Allies and Axis powers battled in different theatres, the world’s largest industrial manufacturers were forced to support the war effort in whatever way they could, and a wave of innovation swept across the planet. There’s no doubt that war is bad, but generally, the military-industrial machine helps fuel innovation, and during the war years,...

One-Eyed Racer: a retro CBR600RR from Francis Von Tuto

We’re suckers for retro sportbike style. And if it’s married to classic Honda build quality and engineering, you’ve got an intoxicating mix. That’s why this 2006 CBR600RR ticks all our boxes. It comes from Italian builder Francis Von Tuto, who has just returned to his homeland after eight years in Queensland, Australia. His tools and personal ride are in transit to Italy right now, but he’s left this latest build behind—and some lucky Ozzie is going to have it in their garage soon, because it...

Big Sled: A Ducati Scrambler 1100 from Officine RossoPuro

We’ve been lucky enough to ride most of Ducati’s extensive Scrambler range. Of all of them, the Desert Sled is the one we’re most likely to ride in the dirt—and the liter-plus Scrambler 1100 is the one we’re most likely to ride on the street. But what if you could roll them both into one bike? That’s exactly what Filippo Barbacane of Officine RossoPuro has just done, with this off-road-focused Ducati Scrambler 1100. By mashing up the 1100 with Desert Sled parts and hand-made touches, he’s bui...

Tesla Model S Refresh: Range Increases, Styling Updates & a Weird Steering Wheel

Well lah-dee-dah, the refresh of Tesla’s Model S is here. I’d like to sound more impressed, but Elon has been going on for so long about what’s going to be in the “new” car that it’s hard for me to be jumping up and down, all enthusiastic about this.

Elon Musk said it was ‘Not a Flamethrower’

After two days locked up in an Italian prison, American Max Craddock was finally able to make his case to a judge. “It’s not a weapon of war,” his lawyer told the investigating magistrate. “It’s a toy they sell to children.” Craddock had been arrested in the Sardinian port city of Olbia in June 2018 after trying to board a private party bus with a collectible flamethrower from Elon Musk’s latest startup, The Boring Company.

BMW R18 by Kingston Custom: An Art Deco Meisterwerk

BMW has wasted no time getting the new R18 into the hands of customizers. Five months ago, before the Bavarian cruiser was even in showrooms, Roland Sands unveiled the low-slung ‘Dragster’ concept.
