Logo When BMW revealed the R90S in the 1970's, it was a revolution. Superbike power mixed with sensible German engineering. Proving the adage, "everything old is new again" that revolution just happened all over again...

In April, 2008 BMW announced a modern reincarnation of the R90S, the S1000RR Superbike. Aimed squarely at World Superbike competition, this is by far the most potent BMW ever made - 2 or 4 wheels.

S1000Riders.org aims to be the worldwide community for S1000 Riders & Enthusiasts. Leveraging integration with the existing F800 Rider and G450 Rider communities, we aim to be the best independent source of S1000 News, Information, and Discussion.

This looks like an interesting concept for swapping electric motorcycle batteries by a company in Brazil. They appear to have their battery swap station located in front of an existing gas station, which is likely a more secure and convenient location than something just sitting along side of a roadway: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7EbjSGgdXk&t=8s

H-D 2021 Sportster S

Here is Revzilla's take on the new Sportster S: https://www.revzilla.com/common-trea...r-s-first-look

Here are a few photos that I took of the bike this weekend at the Northern California Progressive motorcycle show at the Sears Point Raceway. BTW, at the display they had boxes painted on the pavement that told you to stand there to take photos of the bike. As it turned out, I didn't pay much attention to those directions. One styling feature that H-D can keep is that big license plate/stop light/turn signal lump at the back of the rear tire. I bet a lot of owners will be installing Screaming Eagle tail tidies to replace that sucker. That assembly is just aching to become a car bumper's new decoration. And no wonder it needs such fat tires, what with 3.6 inches of suspension travel at the front and only 2" of travel at the rear. I think that is ... [Read More]

Sondors Metacycle electric motorcycle

Here is a link to an article about the Sondors Metacycle, which will be selling for only $5000. That seems like a fair price for what you are getting. And I would imagine that they should sell well at that price. Plus, the styling is certainly unique: https://electrek.co/2021/07/18/close...ic-motorcycle/

The electric 2021 Volcon Grunt looks very similar to the Rokon, without 2-wheel drive or hollow wheels, but a lot more power: https://www.motorbiscuit.com/is-the-...trail-breaker/

Motorcycle.com has just reviewed Zero's revised 2022 FXE electric motorcycle. (Their cheapest and lightest model - and some people say the most fun to ride.) I think they did a nice job with the BNG and styling compared with the previous years' versions: https://www.motorcycle.com/features/...irst-ride.html
