This week we’ve got a smokin’ hot XSR155 in John Player colors from West Java, Harley’s cool and classy Electra Glide Revival, and a Moto Guzzi eBay bargain. Plus a brief appreciation of Dick ‘Bugsy’ Mann, who passed away last Monday. Yamaha XSR155 by Glanets MC In the west, the Yamaha Yard Built program has focused on middleweight customs—usually based on twins and triples like the XSR700 and XSR900. Yamaha Indonesia has its own version of the program though, and focuses on the smaller bi...

Triumph’s TE-1 Electric Superbike: Everything We Know So Far

The last week of March 2021 saw Triumph Hinckley announce ‘phase 2’ of their hush hush, cloak and dagger, top secret electric bike project. And unlike some other manufacturers who will remain nameless, it doesn’t seem to be all blue sky, smoke and mirrors. So should you get all excited and start selling your hard-mined Bitcoins now? Well, yes and no. Here’s what we know so far. You Can’t Ride It. At Least Not Yet As you can probably tell by the preponderance of ‘artist renditions’ here, there’...

Harley-Davidson’s 2021 Electra Glide Revival Is a Blast From the Past

We Gonna Bike Down to Electa Avenue To celebrate the upcoming ‘Icons Collection’, Harley-Davidson has decided to run a very limited-edition production of this very special Electra Glide, called the ‘Revival’. H-D bikes usually take one of two lanes: black, bad-ass, and loud, or classic and timeless. You can’t go wrong either way, but for those who lean towards the classic look for their favored Harley motorcycles, the Electra Glide Revival is sure to tickle that sensitive nostalgia nerve. The...

I compared a $5,000 e-bike with a $1,100 one, and saw why it's worth spending more on a premium bike if you can afford it

Serial 1 Rush/Cty Speed. Tim Levin/Business Insider I rode a $5,000 e-bike and a $1,100 model and compared the two. The cheaper Rad Power Bikes RadMission 1 is a great bike for the money. But the Serial 1 Rush/Cty Speed has better parts and a smoother ride, making it well worth its $5,000 price tag. See more stories on Insider's business page. Before I took the $5,000 Serial 1 Rush/Cty Speed from Harley-Davidson for a spin, I figured that high-end e-bikes - like most upmarket produc...

Review: Riding the new Harley-Davidson Pan America

“I got to say, you’re looking older.”—Ellis “I am older.”—Sheriff Ed Tom Bell Amongst my Rushmore of cherished films, No Country For Old Men anoints the viewer with myriad lyrical gems and witticisms. The above exchange percolated to the front when, not five minutes into my arrival at Harley-Davidson’s press launch of their new Pan America 1250, an affable employee offered two-inch “Tall Risers” and a “Tallboy” seat. At 6’6” and having worked on the OEM side for numerous bike launches, this...

Alphabet’s CapitalG leads $40 million round in fintech Mantl

Community banks and credit unions aim to be the heart of the, well, communities, they serve. But without the big budgets of larger institutions, keeping up technology-wise can be a challenge. And not only are they competing with legacy players, there is also a slew of digital banks that have emerged in recent years, as well. Enter Mantl , a startup that has developed technology to make it easier for people to open accounts digitally at community banks and credit unions so that those instit...

Hidemo Style: A 1970s Shovelhead from one of Japan’s best

The Japanese custom scene sets rather than follows trends. Japan’s top builders each have a unique and instantly recognizable style, and the machines they produce are usually hard to pigeonhole. This 1970 Harley-Davidson FLH Shovelhead from Hideya Togashi of Hide Motorcycle (that’s ‘Hee-day’) illustrates my point beautifully. Togashi-san’s client simply asked him to build a bobber, leaving the rest to the builder’s discretion. A wise move. Taking loose inspiration from the boardtrackers of...

History repeats itself: A Canadian XR750 returns home

Most of the customs we drool over on these pages have little or no history. They’re usually modified after a few mundane years of weekend riding—or transported straight from the showroom floor to the workshop, in the back of a van. Occasionally, though, we happen across a machine with a decades-long backstory. Like this street legal Harley XR750 tracker from Quebec, Canada, which houses a tuned Sportster engine in an XR750 frame. Builder Costa Mouzouris originally created the street tracke...

The Best Motorcycles of the 1950s

The 1950s was an interesting decade for the motorcycle industry. As countries began to show signs of economic improvement after the devastation of World War II, motorcycle manufacturers could begin to innovate in new directions. While affordable mobility was still an important part of a motorcycle’s design, the humble motorcycle was slowly being replaced by cheaper and more attractive cars as a means of transportation. Sidecars were on the way out, and the rise of the automobile was in full swin...

‘The Suicide Squad’ Trailer Breakdown: Let’s Take a Closer Look at This Wild Anti-Hero Team…but Mostly King Shark

Now this is what I call a Suicide Squad. After the first iteration of the DC Comics team of bad guys trying to do some good failed to stir up much excitement, Guardians of the Galaxy franchise director James Gunn is giving them a bit of an overhaul. The Suicide Squad is coming to theaters and HBO Max this summer with a whole bunch of new team members eager to die while saving the world. Well, at least one of them seems eager to bite the dust.

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,...

Dominatorr: Motoism’s Honda NX650 street scrambler

Boundaries are getting blurred in the custom scene. Genre-hopping bikes are everywhere, and it’s getting harder and harder to pigeonhole many builds. We reckon that’s a good thing, and so do the creators of this very sharp Honda Dominator. Brothers Lion and Ben Ott, of Motoism in Munich, felt a need for bikes that escape the definition of a classic cafe racer. They felt the urge to build “something different that is comfortable to ride and delivers good performance, but also embraces the dark...
