The History of the Ducati Scrambler

Did you know that a new Ducati Scrambler is coming out this year?  Of course you do as Ducati seems to have taken a page out of Apple’s hype machine and turned it up to 11.  We’ve seen silhouettes, ‘leaked’ spy photos and an opportunity for visitors to the Ducati Week in Misano, Italy to see the finished bike inside a shipping container.  In fact, Ducati has hyped up the Scrambler so much that no one will probably ...

Mercedes AMG MV Agusta

Report Daimler May Buy Share in MV Augusta

MV Augusta make beautiful bikes.  They're a bit like the Alfa Romeo of the bike world though - beautiful, soulful machines that let you down in the ownership experience.  You buy them with your heart, not your head.  While the recent MV Augusta's have wonderful engines (like their gorgeous triple), they're let down by awful fueling and somewhat below par suspension (thought it is thankfully improving).  Like Alfa's of ...

Honda CB300F Officially Confirmed

Confirming what most expected, Honda has officially announced the CB300F.  But perhaps a little more surprisingly, it's the United States that will get the bike first and at a great price of $3,999 ($400 cheaper than its fully fared brother).
