WBW Motorcycle Preview: 2019 KTM 790 Adventure R

KTM’s New ADV Class Game Changer I spent the last two days at the Calgary Motorcycle Show gawking longingly at what is slated to be my next motorcycle. I put a deposit down on one back in November without even knowing the price or having seen it in person. Am I completely nuts? Crazy like a fox as it turns out! When the confirmed production bike specs were released in November 2018 at EICMA along with welcomed news of 2019 availability the situation escalated into high gear at my local dealersh...

Camouflaged KTM 390 Adventure Spotted in India

KTM’s Little Indian Adventurer The KTM 390 Adventure should be a fun little bike. The bike was spotted testing recently. This isn’t the first time someone snapped a photo of the little adventure bike, but the photos shared by the guys over at Adventure Rider give a very good look. The bike appears heavily influenced by the 390 Duke. It features many similar lines and an overall look like a butched-up 390 Duke with a little more suspension travel and some adventure duds. I wouldn’t suspect it’ll...

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...

5 Motorcycle Industry Predictions for 2019

Let the New Year Begin As 2019 kicks off, I thought I’d put together a list of predictions for the upcoming months. Most of these are pulled straight out of my noggin without much to back them up.

Someone Will Buy Ducati Image from Ducati There have been numerous rumors of other companies possibly acquiring Ducati. The latest ...

Nicky Hayden tribute: Analog’s Honda XR650L flat tracker

Nicky Hayden left a massive hole in the motorcycling world—and in all of our hearts—when he passed away unexpectedly in May last year. In a fitting tribute, the Kentucky Kid was inducted into the AMA Hall of Fame earlier this month. To commemorate the occasion, the Hall of Fame Museum commissioned two tribute bikes from Chicago’s Analog Motorcycles. American Honda donated the motorcycles, including a CBR1000RR to be wrapped in Hayden’s Repsol MotoGP livery. But the direction of the second bik...
