The $400 K-5 is AGV’s “sport touring helmet,” which means it’s appropriate on most road-going motorcycles from basic uprights to screaming sportbikes. With a snap-down sun visor and space for an audio system, it’s got enough nice features to be interesting.
I just got home from riding the all-new 2016 Ducati XDiavel all around San Diego. My cruiser face is starting to dissipate and I’ve finally managed to turn off Nickelback radio, which means it’s time to get your questions in.
The A-10 Thunderbolt, also known as the “Warthog,” is my favorite aircraft of all time for one reason: its gun. The bullets that exit the tip of the plane’s barrel travel faster than the speed of sound. This means that if you’re an enemy on the ground and hear its telltale BRRAP, you’re already dead. I’ll likely never…
Last week, I spent two days in the California high desert testing the new Husqvarna 701 Supermoto and 701 Enduro. The dirt focused guys chased my taillights as we rode windy roads on street tires all the way out to Anza Borrego the first day, and then I floundered my way home in the sand, sucking on their dust the…
Kawasaki put the world on notice last October when they announced a major refresh to the ZX-10R superbike, which it claimed would make a whopping 207 horsepower and have an industry-leading electronics package. At the Sepang Circuit in Malaysia I worried I’d kill myself on it. Turns out I didn’t have much to worry…
While pickup trucks get bigger with every redesign, this new crop of mid-sized vans offers impressive utility with decent fuel economy and easy parking. We drove the 2015 Ram ProMaster City to find out how far vans have really come since your last ride in an Aerostar.
All things with motors have their purpose, and can be fun when used for that purpose. Yet, somehow, I’ve always struggled to find the purpose of cruisers, or how they can be fun. Man of the people that I am, I sampled a Harley-Davidson to try and figure it out.
It’s an automotive journalist’s duty to bring their audience the unvarnished truth when summarizing a car’s performance and experience in a review. Sometimes, that can lead to a journalist just completely shitting on a car. It happens.
Kawasaki says its Z800 is huge in Europe. The bike is “part sportbike, part commuter,” and is supposed to leave everyone satisfied. Fundamentally it felt solid and well-engineered, but after a couple hours in the saddle I found myself struggling with the concept; is this actually “one bike for multiple jobs,” or is it…
The 2016 Nissan Titan XD is supposed to be ballsier than your standard pickup truck, but softer than a true heavy duty three-quarter ton’er. So,is it the Goldilocks or the bastard stepchild? I put a little mud on its tires to find out.
Every so often inspiration strikes, and a cool idea for a car review pops into my head. This latest Great Idea involved two 2015 Mustangs back-to-back; the GT and Ecoboost. I was curious to see how much the engine changed the character of the car, and while the result was little surprise it was sure fun to wring ‘em…
The Infiniti QX80 Limited gets kicked down to the kid’s table of luxury SUVs because look at it. But drive the thing and all of a sudden you’re Shallow Hal discovering the majesty of inner beauty. And it goes even deeper than the quilt-stitched seats.
Jaguar reestablished itself as a car company worth caring about with the F-Type sports car and the upcoming XE sport sedan. Now they’re trying to turn that sparkle into real money by making the larger 2016 XF sedan distinctive, but practical enough to be a real rival to the Germans. I think it’s close.
In 2015 luxury pickup trucks are mainstays of the American auto industry. Ford, Ram, and Chevrolet each put their own spin on “capable and comfortable” and frankly they’re all pretty impressive. The GMC Sierra Denali isn’t the fanciest of the field, but it is the original. And it’s still the best.
“Cute little Cayenne you got there!” Yeah, keep laughing at this 2015 Porsche Macan Turbo. I can’t hear you over the sweet sound of the exhaust and perfect-click upshifts. Call it a big hatchback or a small SUV, I don’t care. I just want to drive it all day.
Nothing stamps out and rivets-together an abstract concept like the Range Rover. It’s more than an SUV. It’s fancy. It’s important. It’s rolling royalty for god-sakes, man. It was good enough to put in the Louvre 40 years ago and now it’s better than ever.
A touchscreen GPS navigator that works in the wilderness and that you can wear on your wrist? That’s a neat idea, but not one that Garmin’s been able to realize with this new Epix. Allow me to explain.
The Jeep Wrangler is still the quintessential American off-roader. It’s also gawky, inefficient, and built to the standards of a cereal box toy. But we buy Wranglers in droves, love them like pets, and hang on to them like heirlooms. I think that proves there’s a little car enthusiast in all of us.
