THINK OF IBOTY AS TASTY INTERnational alphabet soup for motorcyclists. It stands for International Bike of the Year, and for the past 26 years, a group of magazines from around the world has voted to come up with the winner. Each of the 14 magazines that participated this year picked its top three machines, defined as the ones that truly pushed the limits in performance, technology, value or style.

THE MYSTERIOUS SALES HOLD ON THE 2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R ended in late January, and the company has given an explanation for the holdup: the possibility of intake-valve spring surge (coil vibration) under what Kawasaki calls “unique riding conditions, such as on a racetrack.”

The bikes will be used to assist in local patrols both on-and off-road, including bicycle trails. “We are excited to be the first police department in California to receive an electric Zero motorcycle, because it will allow our officers to patrol more places, more often,” said Lt.

WHY SHOULD EGAN HAVE all the fun? After reading all about PE’s rib-tickling adventures on his Suzuki DR650, it seemed like a good time to revisit the DR-Z400S. For me, in fact, it would be the first visit, even though Suzuki’s been cranking these out since 2000.

ALTHOUGH A SMALL NICHE in the motorcycle market, big-bore, single-cylinder supermotos like the Husqvarna SMS630 dice up urban congestion with surgical precision. We should expect that kind of accuracy from Husky; after all, the currently BMW-owned outfit got its start manufacturing military rifles in the late 17th century.

If you take Highway 14 west out of Fort Collins, Colorado, you come to the town of Walden, population 633, elevation 8099 feet. I pulled into what appeared to be the lone gas station for some much-needed petrol and body liquids, my first stop in a while along the great divide that had people present: a couple of young girls running the quick-mart/gas station, a guy on a couple-of-years-old BMW GS and a dude on a new Triumph Tiger.

WINTER DROPPED ON THE MIDWEST like an anvil this past week while I was working at our office in California, and I flew home to a Wisconsin that had changed from autumn brown to solid white. The late afternoon sky had a winter purple cast, giving the snow a luminous midnight-in-Lapland quality.

BECAUSE THE INTERNAL-COMBUSTION engine has zero torque at zero rpm, it must perform its complete operating cycle continuously to make useful torque. It has to be spinning. This is a problem because as our journey begins, the vehicle is sitting still.

IF THE AVERAGE AMERICAN KNOWS ANYTHING AT all about the island of Santa Catalina, you can probably thank a singing group called the Four Preps. They had a 1958 hit—which is still alive and well on YouTube—called “26 Miles.” This breezy little number informed us that Santa Catalina was the “island of romance” and was located 26 miles off the coast of Southern California.

DON CANET
WHEN MOTOGP’S DISPLACEMENT limit was dropped to 800cc a few years ago, we sort of expected street-going sportbikes might follow suit. YZF-R8, anyone? While that never happened, Yamaha has rolled out its all-new FZ8, completing a hat trick of sporting standard models that includes the FZ1 and FZ6R, all of which offer a more-relaxed, real-world alternative to the company’s YZF-R1 and R6 supersports.

It was 1986, a time of tariffs and rad mustaches, of trying new market segments as motorcycle sales started to twitch back to life after declining from an amazing peak in the late Seventies. It also was the time of the Yamaha FZX700 Fazer. The five-valve-per-cylinder inline-Four’s displacement of 698cc was in response to the over-700cc-tariff imposed by the International Trade Commission in 1983 to protect Harley-Davidson in the U.S.

STEVE ANDERSON
IF YOU TALK WITH NEAL SAKAI, THE man who began Zero Motorcycles, it’s hard not to catch his enthusiasm for electric motorcycling. Internal-combustion engines, he likes to point out, are less than 30 percent efficient. Electric operation—where losses in the vehicle can be held to as low as 10 percent—is the better answer.

What if the European Union had passed the recently proposed stringent carbon-dioxide emissions standard for motorcycles? What if the peak-oil Cassandras are correct and gasoline becomes more valuable than 20-year-old Scotch? Don’t worry, motorcycles will still exist, and still be capable of ever-increasing performance, but powered by something other than pure gasoline.

Here’s a bomb-proof storage solution for adventure-touring, dual-purpose and off-road bikes with tall, large-capacity gas tanks: the Giant Loop Buckin’ Roll Tank Bag ($125). Boasting 3.5 liters of zippered and/or storm-flap-covered pockets and sewn with military-grade thread, this strap-down carry-all wraps around the tank and is designed to remain out of the way when the rider is standing on the footpegs. A seam-sealing kit is included. Need more storage for long days on big bikes? Wrap the Buckin’ Roll around the 10-liter Fandango Tank Bag ($164) to create the Giant Loop Tanker.

Moto-9
$475.95
Bell has taken the removable helmet cheekpad concept to a higher level with its Magnefusion Emergency Release System for the all-new off-road-oriented Moto-9 ($475.95; sizes XS-XXL). Built into each pad are three strong magnets that lock securely into molded recesses n the TriMatrix Composite shell. Not only does this new feature allow for exceptionally easy removal of the pads for hand washing, emergency responders are able to gently remove the helmet from a rider's head, reducing the potential for secondary spinal injuries. The antibacterial, antimicrobial and Eject Helmet Removal System-friendly X-Static liner is held in place with conventional snaps. Weighing a claimed 1450 grams, the Moto-9 further features Bell's Velocity Flow Ventilation, patented Magnefusion chinstrap keeper and Flying Bridge Visor with its no-tools-required QuickFlip adjustment screws.

HEADING OUT FOR LONG DAYS IN THE SADDLE? WE WERE WHEN preparing for February’s four-bike sport-touring comparison (“High Speed, Low Altitude”), so we gathered a quartet of current or recently introduced medium-priced full-face helmets seemingly well-suited for such duty.

I BROKE MY FREAKIN’ NECK. YES, YOU read that right. While testing motocross bikes last year, I came up short on a 75-foot jump, clipped the top of the landing ramp with the front wheel and was thrown violently over the handlebars to the ground.

AT RISK OF TEARING THE TIME/SPACE continuum, Editor-in-Chief Mark Hoyer mounted a Touratech iBracket for an Apple iPhone on his 1958 Triumph Trophy. Logic being that if the bracket could survive the harshness and vibration of an old British parallel-Twin with crap suspension, it is likely to survive anything.

Q I ride an ’09 BMW R1200GS and have a question about tire pressure. I get so many conflicting answers that I want an answer from someone I can trust, and that’s you. I weigh 310 pounds and ride with the BMW Vario bags and topcase, and I often have my 120-pound son on the back.

Every once in a while, I find a tool that, in itself, is nothing special, but the package or device that houses the tool is just too cool to ignore. And that’s what we have here with the ErgoStar Automatic Fast Open Ball End Hex Key set (part #66996; $16.99) from Wiha tools (www.wihatools.com).

LAST AUGUST AT VIRGINIA INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY, Suzuki-mounted Tommy Hayden outdragged the Yamaha of Ben Bostrom to win the first of two AMA Pro American SuperBike races scheduled that weekend. Margin of victory was just .005 of a second—too close for even the official waving the checkers at the start/finish line to call.
