DARK SKIES AND RAINsoaked roads awaited my arrival in Bologna, Italy, for the international press launch of Ducati’s new-for-2014 899 Panigale at the nearby Imola circuit. A natural successor to the 848 EVO sportbike, the mid-displacement 898CC V-twin faithfully delivers the cuttingedge styling and technology of its 1199 superbike sibling to a broader audience.

IS IT ALL ABOUT HERITAGE? Royal Enfield’s roots date back to the 19th century and its Bullet— whose engine the new Continental GT is based upon—was first produced in 1933. That makes the Bullet the oldest motorcycle in the world in continuous production.

The bike that was intended to save Royal Enfield from the mighty Japanese onslaught of the '60s was the one that inspired the new Continental GT. Packing a 250cc four-stroke single, that 1965 Continental GT was in fact Royal Enfield’s pedestrian Crusader decked out in a racy-looking fiberglass petrol tank, fly screen, clipons, rearsets, and flashy red paint.

ALTHOUGH IT MIGHT TAKE SOME time to grasp Husqvarna’s changing owners and colors, there’s no easier bike to get accustomed to than the new TE300. The bike, which received high accolades as a Husaberg, is now exclusively a Husqvarna because the two companies have been “reunited” as one under the KTM umbrella.

EBR also has a cooperation agreement with Indian Hero MotoCorp and plans to race its new 1190RX next season in the 2014 Superbike World Championship. Hats off to Buell’s determination.

Honda recently took the wraps off the brand-new CBR300R sportbike at the China International Motorcycle Trade Exhibition in Chongqing. The show, the largest in China, has been held annually since 2002. Although Honda doesn't release official sales figures to the media, it is no secret that the CBR25OR has been a red-hot seller since its release in 2011.

Crammed into this issue’s 82 pages were three features that, to this day, remain etched in my memory. → For "Riding the Ones,” Editor Paul Dean lapped Sears Point Raceway on Bubba Shobert’s 1988 AMA Superbike-winning Honda VFR750. "When you whack the throttle open in the fat part of the powerband,” he wrote about the Mike Velasco-built V-4, "you’re catapulted forward with such force-often with the front wheel off the ground-that you almost expect the asphalt to wrinkle up like a cheap throw rug and get spit out behind the rear wheel.” Rounding out the 12-page section, David Edwards rode John Kocinski’s Yamaha TZ250, and Steve Anderson reported on Dale Quarterly's Eraldo Ferracci-fettled Ducati 851.

STALLING YOUR OFFroad bike’s engine halfway up a rocky, technical climb sucks. Getting going again is often difficult and exhausting. Sometimes, it’s best to head back down the hill and make another attempt. Either way, frustration and fatigue set in.

I’d like to share five points regarding transmissions: [l] For years now in Formula 1 car racing, changing gears has been a matter of hitting little paddles on the steering wheel that call for upshifts and downshifts. There is no need to punch a clutch pedal twice and blip the throttle to manually synchronize downshifts as in the past.

The fastest Triumph-powered motorcycle to ever turn a wheel is powered by a pair of air-cooled, two-valve, pushrod engines designed in the late ’30s. Its rocket-like profile, once described by the late Don Vesco as “one of the most beautiful streamliners,” was penned by the man who designed the radical 1948 Tucker car.

THE TRIUMPH-POWERED CASTROL ROCKET IS APTLY NAMED BUT STILL NEEDS TO PROVE ITSELF ON THE SALT

Andrew Bornhop
Even parked in a photo studio, the Castrol Rocket exudes speed, looking every bit ready to reclaim for Triumph the title of “World’s Fastest Motorcycle,” the honor held by the British marque for all but 33 days between 1955 and 1970. Problem is, when the Rocket streamliner went to Bonneville last August to test and participate in the BUB Motorcycle Speed Trials, bad weather and an assortment of typical tuning/teething issues kept rider Jason DiSalvo from making any serious speed runs.

Q: I purchased a V-Max new in March 2004. It always rode true with no wobbles at all. Then, in 2008, we trailered it 800 miles (the fork was tied down for me by another rider). It then developed a very bad front-end wobble at low speeds (15 to 50 mph).
