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...

Ducati’s Future Is Electric

An Electric Italian Stallion Is Coming Electric motorcycles are starting to really come into their own. I made a prediction that 2019 would be a breakout year for electric bikes. It’s shaping up to be true. Ducati is in the game. At a Motostudent event in Spain, Claudio Domenicali, Ducati’s CEO, said “The future is electric, we’re not far from starting series production.” The Italian publication Corsedimoto, reported Domenicali saying the quote above. It has everyone wondering what D...

THE OLD BRIDGE AND THE V. Speedy Siegl Racing’s Ducati 900SS Racer

Written by Martin Hodgson For a brief but magical time in music history the Seattle Sound dominated the airwaves and shaped a generation. Now another of the cities institutions has crumbled and gone, the equally mystical and murky Alaskan Way Viaduct. But now a new creative force is flourishing in the North West and it’s the music of classic air-cooled engines that permeates the side streets and freeways. Part of that revival is Speedy Siegl Racing and they snuck into the earthquake damaged V...

Suzuki Is Working on a New VVT for GSX-R1000

Say Goodbye to the All-Mechanical Setup Suzuki’s current GSX-R1000 has a variable valve timing system it got from the GSX-RR Moto GP bike. It’s an all-mechanical system and a darn good one. However, it seems Suzuki will drop that tried and true system for a new hydraulic VVT system, according to Cycle World. The publication spotted some patent applications that suggest Suzuki is letting go of its current mechanical system in favor of a new hydraulic one. Why? Because a hydraulic VVT system coul...

RENAISSANCE IN VERMONT. John Stewart’s Restomod MV Agusta 250B

Written by Andrew Jones There’s more than a few Italian moto designs that are so close to perfection, only Tamburini himself could improve on them. It seems that every line, bolt and curve was placed by the hand of il Dio himself. So to set yourself the goal of restomodding one is tantamount to tweaking the Mona Lisa or restoring the Colosseum. And for it to happen in Vermont – of all places – seems even more surreal. Yet that’s exactly what local retiree and self-confessed internal combustio...

THE FAST BOY SCOUT. WalzWerk Racing’s Tough Indian Dragster

Written by Andrew Jones Marcus Walz has a sort of infectious energy that both inspires and amazes. It seems like every time we talk to him, he has two or three new bikes ready to go – each one as different and as interesting as the last. It’s a Norton. Then it’s a BMW. Then it’s a Ducati. And as of right now, it’s an Indian Scout Bobber that’s been prepped to tear up you local biker hang-out in a fashion that would bring a smile to Burt Munro’s face and tears to the eyes of the opposition. ...

KTM’s CEO Is Serious About Buying Ducati

Is VW Group Interested in Offloading the Brand? We reported last month that KTM’s CEO, Stefan Pierer, expressed interest in buying Ducati. It now seems that it’s little more than just a pipe dream. According to Cycle World, the CEO reportedly made an offer of $1.5 billion to VW Group for the brand. There is no word yet on whether or not VW is actually considering the offer, but I can think of $1.5 billion reasons to do so. However, as Cycle World points out, Herbert Diess is the new head honcho...

Turning the CB250 RS into a vintage-style Honda trail bike

We love seeing ugly ducklings turned into graceful swans. After all, anyone can make a Ducati SportClassic look good—but a cheap 1980s commuter bike is a completely different ball game. This ice-cool little scrambler started life as a Honda CB250 RS, a plasticky but well-made runabout that was popular in the UK and Europe. You can still find them on the secondhand market, and they’re a bargain at about US$1,500. That makes the air-cooled single perfect for a low-cost, big-value custom job—...
