Kawasaki Files Patent for Radar System

Getting Higher Tech The motorcycles of the future will need to be as advanced as the high-tech cars out there to make sure they’re easily spotted on the road by autonomous and semi-autonomous car technology. This means you’re going to start seeing more radar and sensors on motorcycles. According to MoreBikes, Ducati and KTM are already on this train, and now Kawasaki is jumping aboard with a new patent filing.  The company recently filed a patent for a new radar system for its bikes. According ...

The Christini AWD Kit For Your KTM Looks Awesome

Imagine How Cool This Would Be All-wheel drive is commonplace on cars, but it’s far more rare on motorcycles. There are some people out there playing with the idea, and now, Christini has a kit you can buy and bolt on your own KTM bike. The kit is designed for KTM’s adventure bikes and can be used to help them navigate especially difficult terrain. According to ADV Pulse, the kit is mechanical and takes power from the countershaft sprocket and routes it through chains and driveshafts to a gearb...

Ready to race: A custom KTM 950 Super Enduro

In the hands of an experienced or brave rider, this custom KTM 950 is probably one of the fastest A-to-B motorcycles we’ve ever featured. Especially over mixed terrain. It’s based on the short-run Super Enduro model, a bike described by Red Bull Romaniacs legend Chris Birch as “the best hooligan’s bike KTM ever made.” In some countries, you’ll spend more than the original showroom price to get your hands on a mint condition 950 SE. So it’s not surprising we don’t see many custom versions. ...

Review: The 2019 Husqvarna Svartpilen 701

Of all the Husqvarna street bikes, none has been so hotly anticipated as the Svartpilen 701. Especially by riders who love the forward design and ride dynamics of its Vitpilen café racer sibling, but can’t get along with its ergonomics. Excitement hit fever pitch when Husqvarna announced (at EICMA last year) that the Svartpilen 701 was indeed going into production. And like its 401 stablemates, the factory bike is as close to the original jaw-dropping concept as you can get. But what’s it ...

BRAAP MUSIC. Hombrese’s KTM 450 SX Dirt Tracker

Written by Marlon Slack We totally get show queens here at Pipeburn. Something built and polished to within an inch of its life, destined to live out it’s existence in a shop front window or a lounge room. That’s cool. But even better is a custom bike that’s going to be thrashed, dropped, flipped, and bounced off people’s heads. And here’s the best example of that you’ll see all week – a 2006 KTM 450 SX flat tracker built by Germany’s Hombrese bikes. Hombrese’s been running for a few years...

ROUGH AND READY. Pasquale’s ‘111’ Honda CB500 Cafe Brat

Written by Andrew Jones “Gustavo from Pasquale and his dad are fucking legends. Just the absolute best.” That’s how our man Marlon Slack described the family powerhouse that is Colombia’s Pasquale Motors, and he’s harder to impress than a hangry Vladimir Putin. We don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that the whole custom scene in Colombia looks to them for inspiration and guidance, and boy are they the right guys for the job. Asked to build a patinaed CB500 for Colombian KTM Dakar racer S...

Will KTM Build an 890cc Engine?

Is There Room in the Lineup? KTM has its new 790 parallel twin engine that it’s putting in bikes. The company has also said it’s working on a 500cc engine, but now it seems there could be an 890cc engine joining the KTM ranks. According to Asphalt and Rubber, KTM might use the 790 engine and bump up the displacement thanks to a larger bore and longer stroke inside the crankcase. Having said that, it would more or less be the same engine just with some additional displacement, making room for mo...

November Customs’ Ducati Scrambler 350 Restomod

Most custom shops have a bike or two quietly lurking in the corner. They’re usually personal projects that only get attention during gaps between ‘real’ jobs. And that’s the story of this charming 1974 Ducati Scrambler 350. Paul and Linda—the husband and wife team at November Customs—first spotted the Ducati when a nearby shop imported it from Spain. They literally bought it as it was being off-loaded, with the intention of giving it a light sprucing. But once they had it road legal and regis...
