Play Mystic for Me: A BMW R80R scrambler from Warsaw

BMW Motorrad has a few quirky gems in the back catalog—like the early-90s R80R Mystic. As one of the last two-valve boxers before the four-valve ‘1100’ took over, the Mystic bundled some of BMW’s newer tech into a ‘factory custom’ aesthetic that didn’t quite gel. Released as both R80 and R100 versions (depending on your country), the Mystic was sort of a road-going version of the adventure travel R100GS. It borrowed the GS’s tank, seat and burly Paralever swingarm, and it came with 18F/17R tu...

Speed Read, 1 November 2020

The moto scene is sizzling this week, with Triumph launching its new Trident middleweight, news of a major custom exhibition in San Francisco, and Revival Cycles releasing a very sharp custom Husqvarna Svartpilen 401. And Germany’s Hookie Co have just shown how to tweak the Bonneville T100 without breaking the bank. The new Triumph Trident ‘660’ is obviously the numéro du jour. First we had the Aprilia RS660 parallel twin, and now we have the new Triumph Trident, a triple with virtually th...

Written by Martin Hodgson In the proud city of Brescia, Italy, they’ve long valued innovation and tradition in everything they do. It is the home of motorcycling God Giacomo Agostini and firearms producer Beretta, so you can imagine they didn’t take it lying down when the Italian GP was moved from their city. Instead, they came up with the grueling  Mille Miglia and like everything in the Lombardy region they do it their own way. So when searching for a workshop to breathe life back into his l...

HIGH CALIBRE: BMW R100 ‘VULCAN’ by Ironwood Custom Motorcycles

Written by Tim Huber. Each year, motorcycle manufacturers are faced with the challenge of building on, and improving the outgoing model year; finding ways to bolster performance; shave off weight; and ultimately outdo their previous offering; before starting the whole process over the following year. Ironwood Custom Motorcycles faces a similar struggle; after completing one of its signature bratted and bobbed BMW’s, the Dutch shop is routinely forced to discover new avenues to one-upping itsel...

WHEN SOMEDAY IS TODAY: Ducati Multistrada 1000S DS by Nico Dragoni Motociclette

Written by Tim Huber. Unlike the Hypermotard, MH900e, Supermono, and Sport Classic, Pierre Terblanche’s design for the original Ducati Multistrada received a less-than-positive reception from the motorcycling public upon its release. Routinely included (and ranking high) on lists of the ugliest motorcycles in modern history, the first-gen Multistrada was all kinds of awkward. Between the cyclops headlight, a windscreen and fairing top that turned with the forks, and a sporty 999-esque tail tha...
