DAMMIT, I LOVE TWO WHEELS, MOUNtain bikes to motorcycles. And if the “engine” is me or a fully built turbo Hayabusa with 380 horsepower or a government-surplus ex-navy electric torpedo motor, I am happy as long as it keeps moving. Still, it seems as though motorcycle enthusiasts regard electrics with suspicion first and curiosity second.

STEVE ANDERSON
ERIK BUELL IS BUILDING SOMETHING in East Troy, and it’s more than a few racebikes. While his new company, Erik Buell Racing, has constructed and sold a handful of roadrace-only 1190RRs, including the one currently dominating the European Twins championship, the real work is going toward building a new company to produce road-going American sportbikes.

Rumors surrounding the MV Agusta 675 F3 have been circulating for a while. Now, we also know that a Brutale version is in the works, too. This new three-cylinder machine has its sights set squarely on Triumph’s Street Triple, which shares the same displacement.

AT ITS BEST, PROFESSIONAL RACING is a balancing act. On one hand, a race team tries its mightiest to do everything possible to win, but it also has sponsors and supporters whose needs must be met. And often, those needs end up in direct conflict with one another.

Gargantuan, automotive-engined and 900 pounds, the Amazonas led the charge this month in 1985. A full test of the stocker was the lead story, but far more entertaining was the accompanying feature on a built-to-the-hilt special with a 2275cc high-performance Volkswagen flat-Four in place of the 1600cc factory unit.

BRAMMO, MAKERS OF THE ENERTIA commuter bike we tested (CW, April), has announced that it has broken through “the dual barriers” of electric-motorcycle range and speed with a new model called the Empulse. The company states that this machine has the capability to sustain (not merely to reach) 100 mph and will be offered in three versions.

IN 2009, KAWASAKI'S KX450F was a close runner-up for Best Motocrosser in Cycle World’s Ten Best Bikes. At the time, the big KX impressed us with its excellent top-end power, great fuel injection and well-balanced chassis. Although minimal changes were made for 2011, the well-chosen tweaks improved this already-impressive motocross machine.

Don Canet
WITH THE HIGHLY anticipated debut of an all-new 2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R looming on the horizon (see page 30), it’s easy to overlook the very green pasture of the present. While the next-generation liter-class Ninja promises to up the performance ante in response to BMW rewriting the rules this year in terms of peak power and advanced onboard electronics, the current machine remains a highly capable sporting platform in its own right.

Just finished the September issue; another great product, thank you. I was impressed by the NCR Leggera 1200 Special, but I do have a suggestion on how to shave another couple pounds: Drop the passenger pegs and supports. I can’t imagine why these were included; it is beyond me why anyone riding this fantastic bike would even consider hauling a passenger.

NOW THAT MOTO2 HAS REPLACED the 250cc Grand Prix class in international roadracing competition, I’ve wondered where 250s came from originally. The classes all used to seem so reasonable—125, 250, 350 and 500cc—but they had to come into being somehow.

WELL, MOTORCYCLE-WISE, I’M back in action—if looking at old bikes rather than riding them can be called “action.” In a first big outing since my Wyoming dirtbike crash last month, I climbed somewhat stiffly yesterday into the back seat of a Pontiac Vibe (aluminum bike trailer attached) and rode all the way up into the wilds of northern Wisconsin with my friends Rob and Lew.

THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT IS that until the new reverse-cylinder YZ450F unseated it in our 2010 comparison, Honda’s big dirt beast CRF450R owned CW's Best Motocrosser title for the previous eight years. Matter of fact, Honda wore the title belt since the CRF-R’s inception in 2002.

ITALIAN PASSION FOR MOTORSPORT IS SYNONYMOUS with the stunning performance, soul-stirring sound and seductive, liquid-red styling inherent to a long bloodline of championship-winning Ducati sportbikes. Yesterday’s triumph, however, is just that, and the bigger the trophy, the more dust it tends to attract.

We already tried the two massaged Sportsters—the entryrider-friendly, radial-tired SuperLow and the resuspended XR1200X street-tracker (CW, September)—but got our first taste of the rest of the line, including the new FLTRU Road Glide Ultra with its 103-cubic-inch engine, on a recent trip to Oregon.

DANG, WHAT A RIDE.

RUMORS, “SPY SHOTS” AND controlled leaks continue to surround Triumph’s pair of middisplacement adventure bikes in the Tiger/BMW GS/Multistrada idiom. We conjectured Triumph’s 675cc Triple could be bored and stroked to as much as 825cc or so, the better to compete with things like BMW’s F800ST/F800GS—large and not-solarge Adventure machines being all the showroom rage lately.

FOR THOSE OF YOU UNFAMILIAR with our long-term 2008 Honda CBR1000RR, its attributes were many. Weighing just 413 pounds and making 155 rear-wheel horsepower made this a superior bike to ride on both road and track. So, we did. All new for 2008, the CBR-RR didn’t win the Open-class shootout that year at Miller Motorsports Park (mostly for lack of rear traction that chilly day) or take home a Ten Best award, but it seemed to have vast untapped potential (and proved it by winning MasterBike XI at Spain’s Circuito Albacete (September, 2008).

Why weight? Lop off more than a dozen pounds from and enhance the appearance and performance of your BMW S1000RR with a full titanium R-77 exhaust system ($2300) from Yoshimura R&D of America. This racylooking 4-into-2-into-1 design combines a lightweight Ti header and mid-pipe (with built-in O2 sensor bung) with a glossy-finish, single-outlet carbon-fiber muffler. A 5-plus-hp increase and a small bump in torque are claimed. Too much coin? Opt instead for the slip-on version of the R-77 ($699) with its Ti muffler sleeve and carbon end cap. Other BMW bits: case savers, bar ends, inspection and oil-filler plugs, a fendereliminator kit (pictured), rear axle-adjuster blocks, steering-stem nuts, chassis protectors, race-stand stoppers and more.

Moto Jacket&lt
$2400
You won’t likely come across a finer example of a traditional leather jacket than Michael Toschi’s Moto ($2400). Okay, like the ex-racer’s other Italian-made goods, this is a premium-priced garment. But what you get for your hard-earned green is air-mesh-lined, aniline-dyed calfskin with a feel that is a world apart from that of conventional riding jackets. Should you smack the deck, removable CEapproved padding at the shoulders and elbows, plus foam chest and back panels, will help break your fall. Toschi’s signature yellow stitching completes the look. Michael Toschi International;877/6867244; www.toschi.com

And you can plug your battery charger right into the same outlet. Choose SAE cigarette or Powerlet plugs, or an adapter to plug one into the other. Then there’s a full line of electric clothing, right down to your socks. Coliant Corp., 5520 Chicago Rd., Warren, Ml 48092; 877/752-7835; www.powerletproducts.com

MC
$199
How to improve upon a great idea? Modify it for use on a motorcycle, of course! Originally developed as an alternative to bulky garment bags, the SkyRoll MC ($199) is a two-part travel system: a 47 x 22-inch garment bag wrapped around a 22 x 8.5-inch hollow cylinder. Suits, shirts, jeans and other large cloth ing items go in the zippered main compartment, with smaller items slipping into mesh pockets on the inside of the bag. Zippered “doors” at both ends of the cylinder allow access to shoes and toiletries. Attaching the SkyRoll MC to a motorcycle is easy using the built-in adjustable sissy-bar and tie-down straps. An elasticized rain cover keeps the contents of the 1680-denier ballistic-nylon design dry in foul weather. SkyRoll; 703/849-1492; www.skyroll,com

WITH ALL THE EXCELLENT DEALS TO BE had on things like used motorcycles during the Economic Downturn, it’s a shame none of that has trickled down into the motorcycle tire marketplace. Or has it? Continental Tire introduced the zero-degree-belted ContiMotion about a year ago, calling it “a contemporary, high-quality radial tire for budget-minded customers.”

JET-HOT COATINGS STARTED OUT doing high-temperature coatings for the defense industry—your jet planes and submarine parts—so coating things like motorcycle exhausts is no big deal. We’re talking nanotechnology, particles of paint a billionth of a meter in size that create stronger bonds to substrate metals than do larger bits of paint.

Q HOW safe is patching or plugging a tire? Is it safe enough to do trackdays? Mark McQueen Rocklin, California A Absolutely, positively not; don’t even think about it. Matter of fact, aside from attempting a top-speed run at Bonneville or running flat-out around the NASCAR oval at Daytona, riding at a trackday is about the worst thing you could do with a plugged tire.

Tools that accomplish more than one task at the same time grab my interest in a heartbeat. It’s no wonder, then, that I recently bought a nifty Digital Tire Inflating Gun (part #92570, $49.99) from Griot’s Garage (www.griotsgarage.com). There’s nothing new or revolutionary about a gauge that allows you to simultaneously inflate a tire and check its pressure, but this one is particularly well done.

My question is in regard to oil. I recently purchased a new BMW F800GS, and one of that bike’s upsides for me was being able to change the oil easily (spin-on filter that is accessible). My dealer says that I need to use a 10W-40 “motorcycle grade” oil.

MOMENTS AFTER HIS 31/2-SECOND victory over Casey Stoner this past July at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Jorge Lorenzo left his Yamaha YZR-M1 and sprinted from view. He returned as a silvery-clad astronaut, moving with studied clumsiness as if in lunar gravity, to plant a black flag, claiming Laguna as “Lorenzo Land.”
