Raising the bar: Vagabund gives the BMW R nineT a lift

We’ve always admired custom motorcycle workshops that keep pushing the boundaries. Austria’s Vagabund Moto have been doing good work since day one, but they’ve never rested on their laurels. The founding duo of Paul Brauchart and Philipp Rabl seems to level up on every build, relentlessly experimenting with new designs, materials and processes. Their 15th build pushes the envelope to the breaking point. It’s a 2016-model BMW R nineT with hand-formed metalwork, 3D-printed parts, and bodywork t...

BMW Alpina B8 Gran Coupe: German Muscle At Its Finest

The 2022 BMW Alpina B8 Gran Coupe follows the same familiar recipe concocted by company founder Burkard Bovensiepen in 1962. But unlike Gordon Ramsay’s signature Beef Wellington dish, Alpina’s formula is relatively straightforward: Take a BMW and make it go faster, stop harder, and corner like Charlie Sheen on rails. In this case, Alpina opted for a “standard” BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe (yes, the one with four doors), took it to Buchloe, and never looked back. Fresh from the warm North American ...

Bridgestone Now Has Eco-Friendly Tires

McLaren Artura: Defining The New Hybrid Supercar Rulebook

Roughly eight years ago, McLaren kickstarted the hybrid-electric supercar race with the magnificent yet unhinged P1. The Artura succeeds the P1 as McLaren’s ultimate hybrid supercar, but the new Artura is not a replacement for the P1. For starters, the McLaren Artura has less horsepower than the P1. It is also more “economical,” with base prices starting in the $225,000 range, much less than the P1’s astronomical $1.5 million asking price. Despite this, Artura is truly special. It’s the first...

Obsidian Fighter: A Frisco-ed Sportster from Rough Crafts

Even though there’s been no official word from The Motor Co., it looks as if the venerable Harley-Davidson Sportster is slowly fizzling out. It’s been completely removed from H-D’s European website, and the once extensive range has been reduced to just three models on the US listing. And with H-D currently on a mission to scale down, we’re not holding our breath for a replacement. But the Sportster’s notoriety will continue long after the last model rolls off the assembly line. That’s because...
