Get Rid of That Old Lid and Get a Good Deal For a limited time, AGV is offering people a pretty good deal.

Watch the World’s Fastest Electric Trike Silently Rage to 236 MPH

That’s Not Even Its Fastest Run If you want to watch one of the eeriest things you’ve probably seen in a while, check out the 360-degree video of the electric trike below making a run on the Gairdner Salt Flats in Australia. The bike goes from a standstill all the way to 236 mph. Because it’s an electric vehicle, all you hear are some rattles and creaks, some tire noise, and the wind. The best thing about this video is that 236 mph for this particular electric trike is a cakewalk. The thing ...

The Fuel Flow’s Electric Wheel Motor Might Be What Sets It Apart

A Unique Motor for a Unique Bike We recently reported on the Fuell motorcycle and ebike. While the ebike is interesting, the electric motorcycle called the Flow is what really grabbed our attention.

Husqvarna Vitpilen and Svartpilen Get Rekluse Semi-Automatic Clutch Upgrade

Not Just a Twist-and-Go System The Husqvarna Vitpilen and Svartpilen will both now be able to come with the Rekluse Radius X Centrifugal Clutch Kit. This kit is a semi-automatic clutch kit from Rekluse that combines the unique TorqDrive clutch pack with Rekluse’s EXP automatic clutch disk.

Indian Teams Up With Jack Daniels for the Limited Edition Dark Horse

Whiskey and Motorcycles Don’t Usually Mix This Well Whiskey and motorcycles are usually best enjoyed separately, but Indian Motorcycle and Jack Daniels thought their brands were complimentary enough to put out a special Jack Daniel’s Limited Edition Indian Springfield Dark Horse bike.

Listen to the Triumph Daytona 765 Sing

A Desperate and Angry Howl The new Triumph Daytona 765 is coming. The bike has been spotted before, and now we come across a video of the machine on a dyno testing. The lucky guy who gets to do the testing looks all to calm as the beast below him screams on the dyno. It’s a beautiful howl that I don’t think I could ever get sick of. It’s almost painful to watch this bike tested like this. It looks out of place. It should be on a racetrack or on a twisty canyon road pushing the limits. I guess a...

The latest patents focus on the actual cooling of the batteries that will be used on the bike. It seems that Kawasaki is focusing on some kind of liquid cooling solution.

Buell and Sauber Motorsport Team up to Create Electric Bikes Under the Name Fuell

Bad Name, Cool Idea Most people remember Buell. The company went limp in 2009 and has existed only to produce racing bikes recently. Now it’s back in the saddle thanks to a partnership with Sauber Motorsport to start making electric bikes. With Buell’s success in the two-wheeled world and Sauber Motorsports success in Formula E, it’s a pair up that makes a lot of sense. The company has two new bikes. One is a pedal-assist electric bicycle called the Fluid. It’s an attractive looking bike, with ...

Tacita Proves Electric Motorcycle Batteries Are Good for the Long Haul

75,000 Miles and Counting There are plenty of concerns with battery electric motorcycles. Range is probably the number one, but high on the list is the concern that batteries don’t last forever, and they’re expensive to replace. Italian electric motorcycle manufacturer Tacita sought to show its batteries are designed for longevity. As a battery goes through its charge and discharge cycle, it loses a bit of its capacity. This means your range will decrease and the battery won’t be able to hold a...
