Huge Moto x Zero: An electrifying new design language?

The One Moto Show is a cornucopia of analog delights, gleaming with metalflake and raw, hand-beaten bodywork. But there was an interloper lurking amongst the chrome and carburetors: this futuristic Zero from Huge Moto of San Francisco. As soon as the Zero was revealed, it starting popping up everywhere on social media. So we dropped a line to Huge Moto’s boss, Bill Webb, to get the story on this surprise hit—and the very 21st century design process. “Zero reached out to us a couple years ...

Timber by Husqvarna - A Dating Service for Tree Lovers

Husqvarna wanted to celebrate and honour the love for the forest that’s shared by many users of their products. So for for this year’s Valentine’s Day, we created Timber - a dating service matching tree lovers with beautiful trees around the globe.Timber is a tongue-in-cheek spoof of modern dating services: instead of swiping between lovesick singles, the user is presented with different trees that each have their own profiles. Once matched with a tree, it becomes apparent they don’t speak any ...

Finally: The definitive movie about the custom moto scene

We’re surprised it’s taken so long. The ‘alt moto’ movement has been on fire for at least a decade, but it’s never made the jump onto the big screen. Oil In The Blood is the first film to catalog the builders, riders and artists who are driving the scene forward. It’s directed by Gareth Maxwell Roberts, a founding member of the Bike Shed club in London and the possessor of an unfeasibly large Rolodex. Gareth knows everybody in the business—and the cast list feels like a Who’s Who of the ...

Chad Reed ready to take on another season of Supercross

Don’t tell Chad Reed that he is over the hill because right now he is still having too much fun flying over them. Supercross is a brutal, bone-jarring sport, and at 36, riders are usually several pages into the next chapter of their lives, icing their bruises and aching joints. But Reed keeps going … and going. Saturday night at Angel Stadium, Reed will begin his 17th season in the AMA season opener, and he will be the oldest competitor. There are days when he said he can sense his age, feeling ...

Shovelhead à la française: Shiny Hammer’s 1972 FLH

Most custom motorcycle builders are pretty handy in other areas of life and work. The ability to set up a lathe or tune an engine lends itself to different fields of craftsmanship. And if you’ve got a knack for aesthetics, you can probably also design (and print) a t-shirt. But one trend that’s caught us by surprise is the number of furniture designers who can also build very classy bikes. One such Renaissance man is Samuel Aguiar of Shiny Hammer, who created the elegant ’72 FLH shovelhead we...

New 500cc Will Soon Accompany the KTM 790 Adventure

The Immediate Focus Is on Smaller Displacement Bikes Yesterday we reported on the fact that KTM’s boss, Stefan Pierer would like to buy Ducati in order to build higher displacement bikes. In the same interview with Speedweek, the CEO let slip that his company will build a 500cc motorcycle. That bike would come with the help of its Indian partner Bajaj. Pierer didn’t go into details much about the motorcycle other than the fact that it would be manufactured by Bajaj for KTM. He said he wants the...

Could KTM Buy Ducati? KTM’s CEO Thinks So

The Austrians Gaze Lovingly at the Italians In an interview with the German website Speedweek, Stefan Pierer, the CEO of KTM, said he would be interested in Ducati to continue KTM’s current positive momentum. Pierer discussed Ducati as a possibility after being asked if KTM could continue to compete with its twin-cylinder engine or if it’ll have to go with more cylinders and larger displacement. He said a three-cylinder engine would be possible if KTM’s partner Bajaj bought Triumph. Bajaj has e...

EXTENDED REVIEW: 2018 Husqvarna Svartpilen 401 & Vitpilen 701

Written by Marlon Slack These bikes are nothing if not divisive. You’ll either think they’re the best looking motorcycles on the market or you’re just plain wrong. To my eyes they’re so damn striking I can’t help but love them.  But you’ve probably already made your mind up about their looks. And as distinctive as they are, they’re also bloody strange beasts that sit in weird, confused end of the market. Not just because of their looks. They’re oddities. They’re both singles. They’re both b...

LIGHTNING MCQUEEN. Greg Hageman’s Tribute Husqvarna SM 610 Scrambler

Written by Marlon Hodgson Provenance; a word usually reserved for the fine art connoisseurs amongst us, but recently it proved the difference between a motorcycle selling for less than two grand and a quarter of a million dollars. That particular bike was Steve McQueen’s very own Husqvarna 400 Cross that he rode in the groundbreaking classic, On Any Sunday. But rather than bid at auction, another wise collector with four Hageman Motorcycles already in his garage decided to go straight to the ...

The biggest hits (and a miss) from EICMA 2018

In Europe, the motorcycle industry is in booming. Sales rose over 7% in the first half of 2018 compared to the previous year, and Germany was the standout country with a rise of over 10%. Europe’s biggest motorcycle market by sheer volume is Italy though, with 130,000 bikes sold in six months. Fittingly, Italy is also home to the huge EICMA motorcycle show, which has been running in Milan for the past week. There’s been a real buzz around this year’s show, with dozens of new model debuts an...

Backup chainsaw?

I was thinking about getting a backup chainsaw. I saw a decent used one for around 100.00. I don't need to cut wood for heat but I have a wooded lot and sometimes trees/limbs in the neighborhood come down. I've managed fine with my Husqvarna 350 for years but having another one as a backup might not be a bad idea especially if I really need it. On the other hand it might be a waste of money that can be saved. Just looking for some opinions. :)

The best of INTERMOT (and the Paris Motor Show)

The Intermot show is over for another two years. It’s been an action-packed five days, with Indian making perhaps the biggest bang with its FTR 1200 street tracker (see report). But ‘America’s First Motorcycle Company’ didn’t have a monopoly on the news. We’ve picked out four more important launches—plus a couple of leftfield machines that have just debuted at the Paris Motor Show. Let’s kick off with the one that created the biggest buzz: the new Suzuki Katana. The new Suzuki Katana The ...

Street Thrasher: The XT 600 gets the supermoto treatment

No list of retro enduros is complete without the noble Yamaha XT 600. Manufactured for almost two decades until 2003, it ticks all the important boxes: basic, versatile and reliable. But what if you’re not looking for a trail weapon per se? The XT 600 makes a pretty rad supermoto too, if executed just right. And Walid, from Parisian shop Bad Winners, sure knows how to design a motorcycle. He didn’t set out to customize an XT 600. “The XT picked me,” he tells us. “I had it in the workshop f...

13 Shades Of Grey: The first custom Husqvarna Vitpilen

The Husqvarna Vitpilen 701 is one of the most attractive OEM motorcycles of recent times. Despite the three-year gap between concept and production, the final road going version of the 701 is damn close to the stunning prototype we were first teased with. It’s a helluva good ride too; light, punchy and nimble. (Yes, we’ve tested it.) But how do you customize a bike that looks so fine out the box—and has such a definitive look? The Dutch outfit Ironwood Custom Motorcycles have had a crack ...

2019 Honda CRF450L Test Ride Review

I Love It! I admit freely to generally liking all Honda motorcycles. Not that I won’t criticize shortcomings on them, but overall I just like the cut of their jib. They build bikes that make the rider feel more confident in their ability. They focus on imbuing their bikes with user friendly torque curves and power bands tailor-made for specific applications. Honda bikes have a unique design and sound aspect too. I can almost always tell I’m riding one instinctively. I swear they even smell diff...
