Putting The Biggest Sportbike Motor In The Smallest Motorcycle Is The Best Worst Idea Possible

There is a reason why sportbikes are long, keep a lot of weight over the front, and have front ends that don’t turn a ton and have beefy steering stabilizers: it’s so you don’t kill yourself. But, if you’re going to kill yourself, doing it on a Ducati Panigale-powered Grom is a great way to do it.

The Ducati 'draXter' XDiavel Concept Is A Vicious Nightmare Of A Sport Cruiser

I had two nightmares last night. In one, Ducati’s draXter XDiavel concept was chasing me down a dark, desolate highways and trying to eat me. The other involved losing a bet and being strapped to the draXster with the throttle taped wide open as someone dropped the clutch. I still can’t decide which was scarier.

You've Never Seen A Custom Bike Like This Hello Kitty-Themed Scrambler

The funny thing about custom motorcycles is how often they end up looking so similar. When MotoCorsa, the top selling Ducati dealership in the nation, was asked to be a part of Ducati’s Custom Rumble contest, they wanted to put the “custom” back in custom. Meet the Hello Kitty-themed Scrambler, and boy is it...…

Watch The New Ducati Multistrada Enduro Prove It Can Be A Big Dirt Bike, Too

For the past decade, if you wanted an adventure bike (read: a big bike with big suspension you could sort of ride off road) you pretty much had to decide between the BMW GS and KTM 1190 Adventure.

The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb Just Banned Sportbikes

The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) is easily the most batshit insane motorcycle race in the United States. The 12.42-mile long course is where the fastest and craziest among us go to compete against both fellow man and mountain as they ride to the top of the 14,110 foot summit. But this year, many of them…

Ride Review: The 2016 Ducati 959 Panigale Is The Sportbike I Would Buy Today

I know this isn’t going to a popular opinion, but I think the new Ducati 959 Panigale is my favorite sportbike on the market. If I were buying a sportbike today for daily use/canyon carving/trackday riding, I’d buy it over anything else on the market today. Full stop and cue the haters. Here’s why.

These Changes Are Why You Have To Start Watching MotoGP 

Do you watch MotoGP, the world’s top form of motorcycle racing? If the answer’s no, let me tell you why this coming season will be the best one to start on in many years. All it took was a few rule changes that should make the sport more open and more exciting than it’s been in a while, and since it already kicked…

The Ducati Scrambler Flat Track Pro Is Here, Because Turning Things Into Trackers Is Hard

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.

You’re going to see a lot of existing bikes get major motor tweaks this year as Euro IV rolls tighter emissions controls across the industry. That’s why the Speed Triple got a mostly-new engine that’s mostly the same and its why the 899 Panigale is now the new Ducati 959 Panigale. Complete with shotgun exhaust…
