MISTYCUFFS. 2topia’s Wild Laverda Ghost Strike 668 Restomod

Written by Andrew Jones I won’t lie. The first thing I did for this story was hit up the Google oracle and ask the god of the internet, “What the hell is a Laverda Ghost Strike 668?” An esoteric model, even amongst its quaint Italian brethren, the bike was seemingly named after a Steven Seagal movie. And just like the movie itself, its yellow and black plastic looks have probably not aged as well as they could have. But what if a customiser embraced all that plastic and 90’s posturing and add...

Vespa Scooters Retain Over 72 Percent of Their Value After 3 Years of Ownership

The Scooters Retain Their Value Better Than Anything Else Can you think of a vehicle that would retain 72.1 percent of its value over three years of ownership? According to data from J.D. Power and Associates, Vespa scooters do just that. This year was the first year that J.D. Power tracked resale value and published a study on its findings. The published study was only on cars, but The New York Times reported that data in the study extended to two-wheeled vehicles, too. The brand sitting at th...

Not your regular kind of two-wheeled scooter!

The Z-Scooter looks like a scooter from the front, but is nothing like one. Part vintage scooter, part segway, and part electric vehicle, the Z-Scooter is an absolute fusion of styles and technologies, resulting in a vehicle that is so bizarre yet beloved looking, I can’t get my eyes off it!Made for recreational riding, the scooter/segway hybrid is a fun looking vehicle that can run at recommended speeds of 20km/h for as long as 35km on a single charge. Inspired by the works of Corradino D’Asc...

Four-Links – Museo Piaggio, Paul Bracq, Monaro 50th, Frankenstang

Established in 2000, the Piaggio Museum in Pontedera recently got treated to a full renovation. It’s now, according to Piaggio, the largest Italian museum dedicated to two-wheeled transportation. That’s apparently discounting the space provided for the Ape 70th anniversary exhibit. We mentioned Paul Bracq in the Heuliez 914 story this week in passing, but he deserves a deeper dive, which, coincidentially, Don Andreina at Curbside Classic recently provided in two parts. Unique Cars reminded us...

Bikes Of The Week: Tokyo Motor Show Edition

The Japanese put on a show of force at the Tokyo Motor Show. Honda tore the wraps off its new Monkey and ‘Neo’ cafe racer concepts. Yamaha revealed an oddball three-wheeler. Suzuki showed a tasty potential SV650 variant, and Kawasaki set the interwebs alight with the Z900RS. Which one would you pick? Honda Monkey 125 concept Built around the same 125cc thumper found in the insanely fun Grom, the refreshed Monkey is a modern throwback to Honda’s mini-bikes of yore. And let’s be honest: it a...

The First Modern Scooter in Production

Vespa has long been credited with creating the scooter, but a little-known American manufacturer from Nebraska may have beaten the iconic Italian brand to the punch. The first mass-produced scooter, the Vespa, what means ‘Wasp’ in Italian, was created in 1946 by Piaggio, an Italian aircraft manufacturer. After the end of World War II, Piaggio had a surplus of landing wheels and wing panels, and ...

Auto Fabrica’s KZ400: A two-wheeled Extreme Makeover

You can judge a builder’s skills by the raw materials they work with. After all, it’s not too hard to make a Norton Commando look good. A Buell is another matter entirely, and so is Kawasaki’s mundane middleweight from the 1970s, the KZ400. Even when new, the KZ400 was about as exciting as a baked potato. But Bujar and Gaz of Auto Fabrica have the magic touch, and they’ve just finished working their magic on the humble parallel twin. ‘Type 14’ began life as an import from the USA. “It had ch...

The Real Deal: Radical Guzzi’s 130 hp cafe racer

The meaning of ‘cafe racer’ has changed over the years. Back in the 1960s, it was mostly about performance. Today, half a century later, critics will say it’s more about style. Definitions change over time, so we don’t lose much sleep over that. But if you hold fast to the original concept of a stripped down, hot-rodded bike, this is what you call a modern-day cafe racer. It’s the Radical Guzzi ‘Ristretto,’ a highly tuned Tonti-framed Guzzi. The builder is Stefan Bronold of Schwarzenfeld, a ...

63′ Gilera 106SS – ExesoR Motorcycles

Words by Martin Hodgson. You don’t hear much about Gilera these days, but there was a time in the 1950s when they dominated GP racing winning six titles in eight years and also tasted success at the Isle of Man TT with the legendary Geoff Duke aboard. Their last major racing success came when the late great Marco Simoncelli won the 250cc World Championship in 2008, but now owned by the giant Piaggio group they largely focus on the European scooter market. It wasn’t always that way for thei...
