2016 Honda CBR500R Gets New Body 2015-10-16 10:12
Honda's light middleweight gets a new look this year, thanks to a new set of plastics and lights. While we think it looks more like a typical supersport bike now, it seems to be a step back from their new style introduced with the VFR1200. Mechanicals are unchanged from last year...
Kawasaki Upgrades Brakes on ZX-14R for 2016 2015-10-15 06:27
Kawasaki isn't ready to stop production of the 14r yet, but they do want it to stop even better. To that effect, 2016 sees all new brakes, with Brembo supplying the master cylinder, callipers, and rotors, and big K even stepped up to factory SS lines...

Kawasaki Announces New ZX-10R, KX-450F For 2016 2015-10-08 20:55
It has been such a quiet fall for model announcements that we started to wonder if there would be ANYTHING exciting. Well finally we have something other than BNG and minor models: a new 10R. That's not the only significant release though. If you like dirt and air, Kawasaki's top motocross offering, the KX450F, is all new as well...
New Budget R1 for 2016 2015-10-06 21:56
Usually an S tagged onto the end of a model stands for Sport or something similarly indicative of a higher end spec... but Yamaha decided it should mean Short-of-money for the new R1 sub-model. It is an interesting idea, perhaps in response to the rather steep increase in price literbikes have seen the last few years...
