How Much Power Does the 2022 Aprilia RS 660 Make?

The Aprilia RS 660 is a heavy hitter in the middleweight supersport category, delivering serious muscle to the class in terms of performance and versatility. It’s not only more practical than the howling inline-four 600s in terms of overall flexibility and comfort, but goes for the same entertainment value and knife-edge sharpness of the replica racers it competes against.

Celebrating Moto Guzzi’s 100th Birthday

Led by a pair of California 1400 police bikes, a near-endless stream of Moto Guzzis of every age and color make their way on the road circumscribing Lake Como. Squint hard and you’ll make out Ewan McGregor on the V100 next to the red sidecar outfit in the first row.

2023 Lucky Explorer 9.5 Prototype Test

These days, any manufacturer with pretensions to being a global player at whatever level in the marketplace has to have a dual-purpose Adventure model in its range, and MV Agusta is no exception. Italy’s most historic trophy brand – the so-called Ferrari of motorcycles, with 270 Grand Prix road racing victories and 75 World Championship titles in its locker, including 17 successive 500GP crowns – actually has a notable off-road heritage, too. Company founder Count Domenico Agusta’s dirt demons won successive Italian MX/Enduro titles in the 1950s and ’60s, as well as equipping the Italian team in ISDT events abroad. But after the Castiglioni family acquired MV 30 years ago, their focus for the brand was exclusively on the hard stuff – a focus which the company’s current owner Timur Sardarov is now in the process of changing.

Yamahas Coming Out With a Race-Spec R1 In 2023

In a move further supporting my argument that R1s are purpose-built racebikes with lights and mirrors to make them legal on the roads, for 2023 Yamaha is introducing the R1 GYTR – an R1 prepared specifically for track duty, without any of the homologation pieces for roadworthiness (don’t worry, the standard R1 isn’t going anywhere). Yamaha similarly does the same thing with the R6, offering it for sale exclusively as a track-only model.
