MO Tested: 6D ATS-1 Helmet Review

Innovation, whether it be the motorcycle I’m riding or the gear I’m wearing, always piques my interest. I remember the introduction of 6D’s Omni-Directional Suspension (ODS) technology in MX helmets at the now defunct Dealer Expo show in 2013, and to now see it realized in a street-legal helmet a few years later satisfies my progressive inclinations.   For the uninitiated, 6D’s ODS is comprised of 29 elastomeric isolation dampers situated between the dual expanded polystyrene (EPS) liners. The result is a claimed reduction in energy transfer to the brain during low-, medium-, and high-speed impacts for both angular (rotational) [...]

Church Of MO – 2008 Honda Silver Wing ABS Review

2008 Honda Silver Wing ABS Review Honda’s big scooter offers luxury and the safety of anti-lock brakes By Jun. 12, 2008 Photos by Here’s a question for you: when are you old?

2017 Benelli TnT 300 Review

Hmmm… the Benelli 300’s VIN plate says Made in China, but if it said Italy you could just as easily believe it: Check the nice welds on that red trellis frame, respect the braided steel lines leading to the dual front discs which are clamped by calipers that look like Brembos. Behold an instrument panel and switchgear that wouldn’t look at all out of place on any Japanese motorcycle. The stylish pointy footpegs look like something from an MV Agusta, and both shift and brake lever tips are eccentric-mounted adjustable. Eyeballing it, this is the nicest Chinese bike we’ve seen [...]

EBR Black Lightning To Debut At Long Beach IMS

As we expected after uncovering trademark filings earlier this month, Erik Buell Racingwill debut a new model called the Black Lightning at the Long Beach International Motorcycle Show. Based on the EBR 1190SX, the Black Lightning offers more upright ergonomics and higher torque delivery for urban riding. Visually, the Black Lightning looks like a blacked-out version of the 1190SX. The engine is the same 1190cc V-Twin, claiming 185 hp, but EBR revised the gearing to provide more practical torque for street use. The seat height and footpegs are lower than on the 1190SX while the handlebars are higher, creating a [...]

GenZe 2.0 Electric Scooter Review

I hate to break this to you, regular reader, but you might be the wrong audience for the GenZe 2.0 electric scooter. How do I know? Well, if you’re here then you appreciate the speed, the sound, and the power (both mechanical and personal) motorcycling provides. The triple threat is an addictive combination to stir the emotions. The GenZe 2.0 doesn’t have any of that. To keep it technically classified as a moped, 30 mph is the fastest it’ll go. Since it’s electric, it hardly makes a sound. And, according to GenZe, with a 170-lb rider it’ll take 10 [...]

2015 Honda Scooter Forza Review
