Reversa – Imbarcadero 14 Venice CB1000R

21.02.2020

Despite Honda’s categorisation, we think the CB1000R Neo-Sports Cafe is anything but standard. With 143bhp on tap and radical neo-retro styling, it’s a machine that is worthy of a lot more attention than it’s been given. Since the CB1000Rs release, very few have been modified by professional builders. So far we’ve seen a handful of them tweaked in a retailer vs retailers build off, but that’s about it. So when Maurizio Carraro of Imbarcadero 14 Venice posted shots of his custom Honda CB1000R project we knew we’d have to find out more.

Riding Gear – Icon 1000 Upstate Riding Shirt

19.02.2020

When it’s hot enough outside to fry an egg on your tank the last thing you want to do is pull on a leather jacket. Thankfully you no longer have to. There are many alternatives to leather that offer the same protection without the heat retention. When those fabrics end up in the hands of companies like Icon the result is always going to be impressive. One of the latest additions to their range is a garment designed especially with hot-weather riding gear in mind – the Icon 1000 Upstate Riding Shirt.

2020 Bangkok Motorbike Festival

17.02.2020

Imagine the biggest bike gathering you’ve been to. Hell, the biggest gathering of anyone. Now double it. Double it again. Then and only then you’ll understand the enormity of the Bangkok Motorbike Festival. It’s the biggest single event in South East Asia that doesn’t involve mass civil disobedience. Now in its twelfth year, the custom show element of the Bangkok Motorbike Festival takes place over 5 days and has over two hundred thousand people pick their way through it. When you take into account the trade stalls that fill the shopping centre, that punches the numbers up to seven hundred thousand people.

Greaser Garage Sport Classic GT1000 SS

14.02.2020

Much to the dismay of the Ducatista, we listed the Ducati Sport Classic range as one of the worst factory customs ever made. That’s not because they weren’t great bikes though. It was due to the fact that when they were released no one was buying them. It was a case of being too far ahead of the curve. At the time of their release, firebreathing Sports Bikes were all the rage. Sales were slow and after only 5 years of production, Ducati pulled the pin. There simply wasn’t enough interest in retro-styled motorcycles for the Sport Classics to be viable.

Riding Gear – Rev’it! Arrow Trainers

14.02.2020

For those who like their riding gear to mimic their street style as much as possible, it’s a good time to be alive. Right now, more brands than ever are filling the need for stylish apparel and shoes that also do the important job of protecting you as you ride. That’s exactly the case with the new Rev’It! Arrow Trainers. The style is a cross between vintage basketball trainers and old-school skate shoes — with a crisp and modern look that has style to spare.

Timeless Italian – Barn Built Ducati Monster S4

12.02.2020

On the surface, the 2001 Ducati Monster S4 didn’t look all that different from its predecessors. It used the same styling formula that Ducati pioneered with the Monster in ’93; aside from a new swingarm and a slew of carbon fibre trinkets. However, thanks to pressure from its competitors, the Italian’s decided this Monster needed performance more befitting of its name. To do this they wedged a retuned 916 L-twin into the trellis frame. This bumped power up to a touch over 100 horses and reinvigorated interest in the evergreen naked. Today it’s the S4’s ageing styling that lets it down more than anything. So when Sven and the team at Barn Built Bikes got their hands on one, they added a dash of cafe racer styling to put it back in the spotlight.

Riding Gear – Bell Broozer Helmet

11.02.2020

Continuing their six-decade mission of properly protecting a rider’s most valuable piece of equipment (that’s your head), Bell Helmets has just launched a design that not only protects, it also transforms. The Bell Broozer is a modular helmet that quickly can quickly switch between two styles of helmet. Use the two pull tabs beneath the helmet to remove the chin bar, and you’re left with a three-quarter helmet for those days when you want to feel a little more wind on your face. Snap the chin bar back in, and you instantly go back to fully enclosed protection.

Veronica – Fly Wheels XS750 Cafe Racer

10.02.2020

Buying any customised or incomplete motorcycle can be fraught with danger. That’s why we recommended against it in our 10 cafe racer mistakes article. Unfortunately, some “bargains” are too hard to resist. Occasionally you might get lucky. More often than not you’re inheriting another person’s mistakes. Sadly this is how this story begins. A ’78 Yamaha XS750 triple was sold under the pretense it was a completed cafe racer with a rebuilt engine and “everything done”. Unfortunately, it wasn’t long before the bike started showing signs that indicated otherwise.

Hossy Rocket – Kenny Roberts Inspired XS650

06.02.2020

During the early 1970s, Kenny Roberts shot to stardom as a rider in the American Yamaha racing team. In 1973 he knocked the top dog of the dirt track, the Harley Davidson XR-750, off its perch riding a seemingly outgunned Yamaha XS650. When his racing moved to sealed surfaces he piloted his legendary Yamaha TZ750 to countless victories in both the United States and around the world. Such was his influence in the world of motorcycle racing that King Kenny’s race bikes have been replicated by devoted fans time and time again. This particular Kenny Roberts inspired bike hails from the far eastern reaches of Japan. Koga City to be precise. Which is where you’ll find Yutaka Hoshi and his workshop Rocket Motorcycle.
