This week reports surfaced that President Donald Trump’s administration would soon roll back the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) and vehicle emission standards set by his predecessor—which, in particular, locked in a controversial 54 mpg fuel efficiency standard for new light-duty vehicles by 2025.

The Bimota Tesi 3D RaceCafe definitely takes the prize for the “most special” bike released at the EICMA show in Milan. I still can’t decide if I’d be proud or ashamed to call this thing my own, but I do know I definitely need to ride it.
On the one hand, the idea that Ducati thinks people are so dumb that they can’t tracker-ize the regular Scrambler is pretty insulting. On the other hand, this Ducati Scrambler Flat Track Pro is pretty damn cool. This one got lost in the new bike fray of EICMA a bit, but is well worth taking a gander at.
Moto Guzzi adds a touch of weird sophistication to every bike they make. It starts with that motor placement, and the individuality just seeps throughout. This year, they brought to EICMA what all the cool kids brought to EICMA – a Scrambler, but they also brought a heavy weight surprise.
Yamaha held a special unveiling in Hollywood, California today to pull the wraps off this: the 2016 Yamaha XSR900 - a stunning version of their FZ-09 naked sport bike.
Last week, we brought you news of a bunch of new additions to Triumph’s Retro line, brought to you by a bunch of people posting on Instagram when they probably weren’t supposed to be.

This Sunday, over 30,000 well-dressed gentlefolk from over 400 cities in 79 different countries will ride to help fund a cure for prostate cancer. If you have a cafe, scrambler, bobber, or just want an excuse to dress up and ride for a good cause, you should join them.
I flew across the pond to wear a bowtie, pretend it’s 1950, and ride some new bikes that look a whole lot like old ones. They’re from a company called Royal Enfield, and they happen to be fantastic.

The new Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards pose problems for automotive groups that aren't selling millions of cars of all shapes and sizes in this country. Take Daimler, for example. Most of the cars they sell in this country right now are C and E-class sedans with average fuel economy ratings somewhere in the…
Just before the government’s partial shutdown EPA published a notice for public comment from Mercedes Benz requesting additional off-cycle credits.
Close your eyes and imagine it's 1979. A first-term Democratic president struggles with unemployment, malaise, high energy prices, and embassy trouble.

Numerous headlines this afternoon are blaring the Obama Administration's strict new corporate average fuel economy standard for 2025. Car companies, the administration says, will have to average 54.5 mpg.
