Some Additional Thoughts On The Ducati Scrambler

The reaction to reviews of the new Ducati Scrambler has been…mixed. I think that's partially because us journalists have failed to do it justice and partially because the bike is very misunderstood. So I figured I should take a few minutes and explain it for you.

I Drifted Like a Madman on the Adult-Sized Crazy Cart XL

Last year's Crazy Cart gave kids the ability to drift to their heart's content, but there was one catch: with a maximum weight capacity of 140lbs, most adults couldn't ride it. No longer, the adult-sized Crazy Cart XL brings 17mph sideways hijinks to everyone. And we rode it. » 10/29/14 7:24pm 10/29/14 7:24pm

How Does a Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Handle a Hot Track Day?

I recently had the pleasure of spending two weeks and 4,000 miles on Rally North America in one of the greatest vehicles to ever come out of the US of A: the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. It's comfortable, fast, and full of practicality. But how does it handle a road course, at 4,500 feet of elevation, when it's 95… » 9/05/14 12:31pm 9/05/14 12:31pm

​Can A 6th Gear Fix The 2014 Honda CB1100?

Here's the world-first review of the 2014 Honda CB1100 Deluxe. Not because we tried all that hard to scoop it, but because everyone else really is just that lazy. » 5/21/14 4:51pm 5/21/14 4:51pm

Formula 1:Day Three testing Bahrain

Good Morning ladies and gentlemen. So today starts off the third day of practice in Bahrain. Up today we will see everyone's favorite Finn, Kimi Raikkonen. Maybe he will spin his new Ferrari, maybe he won't. We will have to see. One story I will be following closely is will the other McLaren driver, Mr. Jenson Button,… » 2/21/14 7:47am 2/21/14 7:47am

This Electric Motorcycle Changes Everything

The Mission RS isn’t notable because it’s electric or because it’s designed and made in America. Or even because it’s really, really fast. Why you’re going to sit down and read every single word of this world-first review is simply because it’s a superior performance motorcycle to any yet made. Period. » 8/02/13 1:56pm 8/02/13 1:56pm

RideApart Review: 2013 Ducati Hypermotard SP

The 2013 Ducati Hypermotard is all new; smaller, lighter and more powerful than the air-cooled model it replaces. This SP version adds fancy Ohlins shock and Marzocchi forks for even better handling. » 6/05/13 3:57pm 6/05/13 3:57pm

Video - Range Rover Evoque: On and Off-Road Test

The Range Rover Evoque is the smallest Range Rover ever. It’s also the first Range Rover since 1993 to not come with an air suspension. It’s also the first Range Rover to feature “design input” from a pop singer who, despite her considerable beauty, almost certainly has never driven more than ten feet off the tarmac.… » 4/09/13 2:59pm 4/09/13 2:59pm

RideApart Review: Ducati 1199 Panigale S

Who’s most qualified to review the Ducati 1199 Panigale S? A racer? A journalist? How about the guy who departed on a 15,000-mile, seven-month, coast-to-coast (and back) road trip the day he bought one? Dennis Matson did just that, then authored this review. » 2/18/13 1:58pm 2/18/13 1:58pm

RideApart Review: Honda Gold Wing F6B

To make the Honda Gold Wing F6B, the company simply knocked some weight off its flagship tourer and pared down the bodywork to make it look meaner. The result is more than the sum of those parts though. Bagger? Cruiser? Tourer? Muscle Bike? Sports Tourer? How about all five? » 2/15/13 4:10pm 2/15/13 4:10pm

First Drive: 2013 Porsche Boxster S

The new 2013 Porsche Boxster is an absolutely terrific car to drive. This sort of pains me to say, as even with a starting price of $49,500 ($60,900 for the S, which is the one I drove) I'm likely going to have to wait until some long lost uncle's helper monkey dies from a diarrheasplosion inside one before I can… » 5/23/12 2:00pm 5/23/12 2:00pm

For $16,900, sheikh, rattle and roll

Had Lawrence traipsed the Arabian peninsula during the Gulf War rather than the First World War, he may have been able to trade his camel for one of 113 specially made GMC Saudi Syclones like today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe candidate. You could drive one too, but will this truck's price make you say hump that!? » 7/11/11 8:01am 7/11/11 8:01am

Ferocious Chickens Attack F-35 Fighter (and By Ferocious I Really Mean…

Lockheed Martin designed the F-35 canopy to withstand the impact of of a 4-pound bird at 480 knots on the "reinforced windscreen and 350 knots on the canopy crown" without breaking. In other words: Chicken squadron vs F-35, fight! » 8/02/10 9:20am 8/02/10 9:20am

2011 Ford Mustang: First Drive

For the last year, every Mustang review has essentially read, "an involving, exciting sports car, but it's slower than the Camaro." In the muscle market, it's power, not handling, which sells. Luckily, the 2011 Ford Mustang fixes that. Moar power! » 3/29/10 12:00am 3/29/10 12:00am

2011 Infiniti M: First Drive

Infiniti's 5-series rival used to be a nice, but anonymous car. After hooning it through Southern California's canyons, that's no longer the case. Now, the 2011 Infiniti M is Japan's Jaguar. » 2/28/10 12:00am 2/28/10 12:00am
