Porteos Self-Loading Motorcycle Ramps Aim to Make Transporting Your Bike Easier

Loading Made Easy Figuring out how to get your $20,000 motorcycle up a $200 ramp into the back of the bed of your truck is never easy. If your bike needs to be transported and you can’t ride it anywhere, typically the only option to move the motorcycle is to haul it into the back of a truck and drive it to your destination. This is where Porteo’s new self-loading motorcycle ramp comes into the picture. Getting a bike into the back of a truck can be a daunting process for some. Sometimes your m...

Suzuki’s Updated Hayabusa Completely Sells Out in India

All Units Sold Out In Under 24 Hours With all the articles we write about India’s motorcycle scene, you’d think that a bike like Suzuki’s Hayabusa would be a tough sell for the nation, but the truth is actually quite the contrary. Suzuki’s newly updated Hayabusa managed to completely sell out in India within the initial 24 hours sales window. With the entire Indian market getting completely dominated by sub-300 cruising machines, it’s difficult to pinpoint how the hell the country managed to s...

The City of Milan, Italy Receives Fleet of MV Agusta Turismo Veloce Police Bikes

The Story of the Italian Exotic Polizia Milan, Italy is a pretty ‘Italian’ place. Especially taking into account that the city council just obtained a small fleet of MV Agusta Turismo Veloces to add to the ranks. That means if you get pulled over doing 10 over the speed limit, there’s a chance that you might be chased down by a brand new exotic Italian motorcycle… How fun. Navigating the tightly knit streets of Italy can prove difficult, and that’s where the city’s Nibbo Motorcycle Unit really...

The Hyper-Styled GPX Demon GR200 Makes a Splash

A Small Demon The sheer amount of new low-displacement entry-level sportbikes that have been popping up in the last year is truly remarkable. It’s as if every other week we have a new sub-300cc machine to discuss, and the bikes keep getting more and more stylized/exotic as time goes on (thanks, KTM). To join the ranks, Thai manufacturer GPX has launched their new Demon GR200, and it looks as mean as the name sounds. At first glance, it should come as no surprise that this motorcycle is geared ...
