The 2021 MV Agusta Motorcycle Lineup + Our Take On Each Model

Luxury Italian manufacturer MV Agusta has no shortage of exciting models coming out in 2021. The Varese-based brand has been working hard over the last few years, delivering attention-grabbing concepts and turning them into full-blow production models or limited-edition specials. Mid-2020 saw the release of the eye-wateringly expensive limited-edition Rush 1000, and with 2021 marking the brand’s 75th anniversary, MV Agusta hasn’t missed an opportunity to unleash another limited-edition on to the...

Carbona XR9: A wild Yard Built XSR900 from Bottpower

If Yamaha let you choose any one of their bikes to customize, which would you pick? For David Sánchez and the wildly talented crew at Bottpower, the choice was clear. They took the highly capable XSR900, and turned it into one of the most ferocious Yard Built bikes we’ve ever featured. Yard Built is Yamaha’s long-running custom program, where builders are encouraged to customize bikes without cutting their frames. So as bananas as this prototype is, it’s been designed as a plug-and-play kit t...

The MV Agusta Superveloce Alpine Edition Is Expensive

Collaborations Don’t Come Cheap I covered the official teaser for this collaboration project released by the MV Agusta brand earlier this month, and I’m pleased to inform you that the limited edition MV Agusta Superveloce Alpine is no longer just a dream and will be available for purchase very soon. Alpine and MV Agusta have combined their French and Italian design prowess for this limited-run Superveloce. The motorcycle largely remains the same as the standard Veloce, but this bike also comes...

The spotlight falls on Ducati this week, as they reboot the iconic Monster. Plus we have a hot-rodded Buell XB12S from the Czech Republic, a classy Yamaha XS650 flat tracker from California, and a killer gift idea for the holidays. Buell XB12S by Rod Motorcycles It’s hard to believe that this wild XB12S started out as a wreck. It got into a disagreement with a car—so its owner handed his damaged bike over to the guys at Rod Motorcycles in the Czech Republic for a custom job. And brothers D...

2021 Audi R8 Panther Edition: This Limited Production Machine Is On The Prowl!

Now here’s a holiday gift you’d likely love to receive – the 2021 Audi R8 Panther edition. Audi says it has “exclusive interior and exterior design elements.” We just call it stealthy and sexy. The catch? Production is limited to 30 examples. So you know, only a few dealerships will have them. Oh, and another hiccup for buyers is the need to shell out $183,300 plus destination and other fees. Ah, what price beauty? Audi R8 Panther Edition: Standard Equipment Those that can splurge­­ – o...

MV Agusta Superveloce 75 Anniversario Limited to 75 Bikes

$30,000 USD – One of 75 MV Agusta has a new special edition of the Superveloce coming down the pipes, and unfortunately for many, only 75 are being produced.

Bushido: A Suzuki GSX-R1100 with Katana style

If the next wave of custom motorcycling is focused on retro sportbikes, we’d be okay with that. The 90s are stacked with potent four-cylinder donors, hidden under massive fairings with loud graphics. So there’s potential there—if you know how to liberate it. Named ‘Bushido’ after the ancient Samurai code of honor, this stripped-down Suzuki GSX-R1100 features a Katana-inspired headlight, and a seat that’ll barely keep you attached to the bike. Now consider that it produces 156 hp and 115 Nm, a...

Retro Muscle: Motocrew’s GPZ900R is the business

There’s a lot to be said for a good old-fashioned muscle bike. And in the 1980s, the Kawasaki GPZ900R was the benchmark. It didn’t have any of the nanny state electronics we’re used to today, but the raucous, liquid-cooled DOHC four punched out 113 solid horses—and propelled the GPZ to 150 mph or more. No wonder the producers of the original Top Gun movie selected a GPZ to star alongside Tom Cruise, who knows how to handle a bike. We’ve noticed an uptick in custom GPZs lately, going right ...

2021 Audi R8 RWD Coupe & Spyder: Strong Performance but for Less Cash!

Now may be the time for budget-conscious Audi R8 Coupe and Spyder lovers to take the leap into their dream cars. The automaker just announced that rear-wheel drive (RWD) versions of both are permanent editions to the lineup beginning with the 2021 model year. The RWD models lack some of the charisma you find on the higher-end quattro models, most notably a drop of 70 points in horsepower and slightly less torque. 2021 Audi R8 RWD: Engine & Powertrain Still, RWD models have the same 5.2...

The $56,000 Cadillac CT5-V can't replace the epic CTS-V — but it could give some BMW sport sedans a run for their money (GM)

I drove a $56,305 Cadillac CT5-V from the 2020 model year, a revved-up version of CT5 sedan. The CT5-V has a 360-horsepower V6 engine — that may not sound like a ton on paper, but it's punchy. The CT5-V is adequately sporty and at times comes off as downright German in its driving dynamics. But what really sets it apart is the overall package, from design to technology.

Driving the spectacular $106,000 Porsche 718 Spyder rearranged my consciousness

I drove the glorious 2020 Porsche 718 Spyder, a high-performance convertible two-seater that goes for a well-optioned $105,780. The Spyder has a new 414-horsepower flat-six engine that's devoid of turbochargers and, in my car, mated to a crisp six-speed manual transmission. The Spyder traces it lineage to the open-air racers of the 1950s. It isn't a practical car, but it is the best Porsche money can buy — and, for me, a ticket to happiness.
