Will Honda Build a Modern Cafe Racer, Too?

Sticking With the Trends We just reported on the fact that Suzuki filed a patent for a cafe racer, and now it seems that Honda could be working on a similar motorcycle. According to the Japanese publication Young Machine, Honda will consider bringing back the GB series of bikes in the form of a modern cafe racer.  As RideApart notes, the GB bikes were Japan’s attempt at they’re own British bikes. GB basically equals Great Britan, get it? Well, we got a few of those bikes here in North America, ...

Is a Retro Suzuki Cafe Racer Coming?

Patent Suggests Maybe Suzuki recently filed a patent application for a new cafe racer bike that would be a nice addition to its lineup. The bike, if built, would likely fit in with some of the other retro-styled motorcycles, including the VanVan 200 and the TU250X. Although, it appears that this bike would have higher displacement than either of those bikes. This new cafe racer would be a welcomed addition to the Suzuki Cycles lineup. The two bikes mentioned above are excellent but a little on ...

Suzuki Files Patent for Unique Engine Placement

Just Flip It Around In a recent patent filing, Suzuki decided it would take the standard motorcycle engine placement and flip it on end. The company filed a patent for a bike with an engine that’s essentially flipped around with the cylinder heads of what appears to be a single-cylinder engine positioned almost horizontally and placed right up by the front fork.  According to Cycle World, the design can be used on single or inline motorcycle engines. The cylinders fit between the main frame rai...

QUICK AND THE DEAD. Exesor Motorcycles’ ‘Santoku’ ’76 SUZUKI GT250 Racer

Written by Martin Hodgson Let’s face it. The days of new road legal two-stroke motorcycles are fast being resigned to the scrap heap of history. Thankfully, the scrap heap is exactly where Christian Schwarzenlander gets the donors for his projects, he simply refuses to start a build with a bike that runs. The owner of Austria’s Exesor Motorcycles had stumbled across an old, dead smoker at a giveaway price and with a love for 1970’s racing it was the perfect chance to combine the two. The end ...

Could Suzuki Bring a DR Big Based on the V-Strom 1000 to Market?

Rumors Suggest It Is So Suzuki looks like it could soon be battling in the upper-middle-class adventure segment of the market. The bikemaker could revive the DR Big name with a bike based on the V-Strom 1000. According to DriveMag Riders, word on the street is that the model will come with 100 hp and be more off-road oriented than the V-Strom. DriveMag Riders cites information from a Spanish publication called Trailriders. In that article, the DR Big is suggested as an alternative to Honda’s Af...

Is a Suzuki Twin-Turbo Motorcycle on the Way?

A Forced Induction Force to be Reckoned With Back in the good old days of 2013, Suzuki showed off a new concept bike called the Recursion which featured a turbocharged system. Today that possibility sounds more plausible for a production bike. According to Cycle World, Suzuki recently filed new patent applications that show a motorcycle with a special turbocharged engine. The patent application was for the frame, but what makes this frame special is the application of the turbocharged XE7 engin...

Is This the Exhaust System for the Next Suzuki Hayabusa?

Hopefully, It Makes Joyous Noise We reported a while back that Suzuki has a new Hayabusa in the works. Now we may be seeing the first patent for the next model. According to RideApart, the company has filed a patent for a new 4-into-2 exhaust system. It looks like it could be used on the next Hayabusa superbike. Crafting a new exhaust system is a delicate science. It has to sound good, but not be too loud. It also has to allow the engine to breathe enough to create good power without spewing to...

5 Up, 5 Down From CHL Top Prospects Game

The CHL Top Prospects Game is not the be all and end all — nor is the Hlinka Gretzky Cup, the Canada-Russia Series, the World Juniors or any other showcase involving draft-eligible players. Scouts do put a lot of stock in those best-on-best events, so a strong showing can certainly help and a not-so-strong performance can potentially hinder, but NHL teams are evaluating an entire body of work throughout the draft year — from start to finish, with plenty of hockey still to be played between now a...

Suzuki Is Working on a New VVT for GSX-R1000

Say Goodbye to the All-Mechanical Setup Suzuki’s current GSX-R1000 has a variable valve timing system it got from the GSX-RR Moto GP bike. It’s an all-mechanical system and a darn good one. However, it seems Suzuki will drop that tried and true system for a new hydraulic VVT system, according to Cycle World. The publication spotted some patent applications that suggest Suzuki is letting go of its current mechanical system in favor of a new hydraulic one. Why? Because a hydraulic VVT system coul...

Sleeper: A subtle Triumph Bonneville from 2LOUD

We’ve profiled 2LOUD’s work for almost two years now. From day one, builder ‘Max’ Yicheng has consistently delivered elegant and harmonious machines from his one-man-shop in Taipei, Taiwan. In fact, his work is so tasteful and restrained, the ‘2LOUD’ moniker borders on ironic. Those are rare traits in today’s custom world, and they’re why we keep a close eye on Max’s output. And this custom Triumph Bonneville exemplifies the 2LOUD ethos. It’s so subtle that you’d be tempted to pass it over—bu...

Custom Bikes Of The Week: 13 January, 2019

Ever heard of the Suzuki XF650 Freewind before? Neither had we, but we love this custom scrambler from the Netherlands. We’ve also got a Buell M2 Cyclone that actually looks attractive, and a Honda CR750 racer priced at a quarter of a million dollars—and worth every cent. Buell M2 Cyclone by Officine Urgani Even the most ardent Buell fanboy would have to admit that the M2 Cyclone is an ugly bike, even by Buell’s admittedly variable standards. The M2 wasn’t a bad bike though, and with 91 hp...
