it might be a long winter

I’m sitting at my desk and am mesmerized watching the storm create drifts outside my window. It’s -24 C and those in the know claim it feels like -31 with the wind chill; we’re in our first deep freeze of the year. It’s times like this that makes me yearn even more for spring when I can get my bike out again. I’ll have to settle for puttering away in the shop or watching a motorcycle-related DVD. I’ve gathered quite a collection over many years, thanks to Go Video’s great selection.It also helps that this time of year, there is no end to the reading material of new model releases and predictions of what we can expect for the coming months.One of the most anticipated motorcycles in a long time…

prepare for the sequel

EBR Motorcycles once again rises from the depths of extinction with the recent announcement that the company will be producing a limited number of bikes out of its assembly plant, which was recently relocated to Grand Rapids, Michigan, from Troy, Michigan, where the head office remains.Erik Buell Racing has had a tumultuous history. Former road racer and Harley-Davidson engineer Erik Buell founded the Buell Motorcycle Company in 1983, producing sport bikes that utilized Harley-Davidson Sportster engines within a tubular-steel chassis of his own design. A decade later, Harley bought 49 per cent of the company, and then bought Buell outright 10 years after that.Buell motorcycles evolved from being steel-framed, Sportster-powered sport bikes to aluminum-framed supersport machines powered by a purpose-built 72-degree, liquid-cooled V-twin designed and manufactured by BRP subsidiary Rotax.Harley…

“the szokes” moves to kawasaki

After eight seasons aboard a BMW, current and multitime Canadian Superbike champion Jordan Szoke has signed a two-year deal to ride the redesigned 2019 Kawasaki ZX-10R in the Mopar Canadian Superbike National championship.The Brantford, Ontario, rider has won 13 Canadian Superbike titles since winning his first in 1998, which was also aboard a Kawasaki. Szoke has raced successfully with the brand in the past, winning consecutive Superbike titles with Kawasaki from 2006 to 2010.Szoke hinted that he may retire after completing the next two seasons. “I started out my superbike career on a Kawasaki,” Szoke said in a press release, “so it just seems fitting to finish it on Team Green.”Joining Szoke at the track, also on a Kawasaki, is his wife, Amy, who rode a BMW superbike to an…

by the numbers

32.2The number of kilometres that India’s Ratnesh Pandey rode his 150 cc Honda Unicorn while standing on the seat and without touching the handlebar. Pandey accomplished the feat three years ago in December, and the Guinness World Record has yet to be challenged.18The number of consecutive times KTM has won the Dakar rally.71As of 2019, that’s how many consecutive years Royal Enfield has been producing the Bullet. Despite its maker having changed hands and countries of manufacture over the years (from England to India), the Bullet has been in continuous production longer than any other motorcycle. The bike is actually older than that, dating back to 1931, but it has been manufactured without a break in production since 1948.18The number of CMDRA national championships that drag racer Ethan Barkley won…

the electrification of harley-davidson

Harley-Davidson is on a mission to reinvent itself moving deeper into the 21st century. Its strategic objectives for 2027 include rebooting its North American business plan, growing its presence internationally – particularly in Europe and Asia – and especially making the Milwaukee-based company appeal to a new generation of young riders, many of whom are not yet old enough to ride. Part of this plan is to “establish the company as the leader in the electrification of two-wheeled transportation.”This is a claim you would normally expect to come from a company like BMW or Honda. Harley-Davidson is known best for its thundering, fuelburning, American-made V-twin motorcycles, the polar opposites of clean, silent electric bikes.The electrification of its products began in 2014, when Harley introduced the Project LiveWire prototype. That bike…

say what?

editor@motorcyclemojo.comVISUAL OVERLOADRegarding the story by Thierry Cellier documenting their New Zealand trip (December 2018), my wife and I spent this past September there, although we did the 4,600 km tip-to-tip campervan version. As much as I enjoyed that, I have to agree that NZ is a top motorcycle destination. There’s not much traffic, barely a straight road in the entire country, and the spectacular scenery literally never stops. And since there is no such thing as a right-handdrive motorcycle, half the challenge of driving there is a non-issue!BRYAN MURRAY VIA EMAILFUEL-CONTAINER ADVICEJust reading my December issue and just wanted to make a note about Costa’s Mojo Garage article about fuel containers. I wouldn’t have recommended using a water bottle when, for the same price, an outdoors store can sell you…
