Two New Electric Motorcycle Companies From India: Emflux And Tork

by motorscycle.com
Last month we reported on Chinese electric motorcycle manufacturer Evoke and the company’s intention of entering the United States with its Urban S model by this summer. Now, rumblings from Bangalore suggest two new electric motorcycle companies, Tork Motors and Emflux Motors, are preparing to launch in India, and eventually the world. The Tork T6X and its corresponding website are apparently much further down the path of offering an actual production bike, while Emflux and its Model 1 appear to be in the final stages of adapting and testing its electric motor within a KTM RC390 chassis. It’s been reported that [...]

Honda Africa Twin Shootout: DCT Vs. Manual Transmission

by motorscycle.com
Honda currently offers two versions of the Africa Twin, one with a standard six-speed manual transmission and clutch, and the other with an innovative Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) that offers two auto-shift riding modes as well as a manual-shift mode. The DCT version retails for $13,999, or $700 more than the $13,299 standard Africa Twin. So which Africa Twin is better: the DCT or the manual? The DCT is not new. The concept has been incorporated into select Honda streetbike models for the past several years, first debuting on the 2010 VFR1200, but the Africa Twin marks the first time [...]

MO Tested: Sena Prism Tube Action Camera Review

by motorscycle.com
Sena wants you to have an action cam. How? By creating a low-priced entry into the action camera market in the form of the Sena Prism Tube. For just $119, you get a 1.0-inch diameter by 3.9-inch length aluminum cylinder capable of capturing about two hours of 1080p 30fps video and audio. Once mounted to the rider’s helmet via the included mounting system, operating the unit couldn’t be any easier. Simply sliding the ring around the outside of the tube forward turns the Prism Tube on and begins recording. It’s that simple. MO Tested: Sena Prism Camera + Video But [...]

2017 KTM 1290 Super Adventure R Review: First Ride

by motorscycle.com
A stunning blasted moonscape is a good way to describe the natural beauty of Peru’s Nasca Desert. And that moonscape makes a particularly good place to test a fast and large adventure-touring motorcycle like the new 2017 KTM 1290 Super Adventure R. KTM has sold more than 75,000 adventure motorcycles since 1993, and its re-named these large long-distance dirt bikes as “Travel Enduros.” I think that does a pretty good job of describing what these giant dirt bikes are all about. Honestly, we’d listen no matter what KTM called them, seeing as it has 56 official factory riders competing all [...]

Dunlop Sportmax Q3+ Tire Review

by motorscycle.com
“Tire testing” is rapidly becoming my favorite thing to do here at MO. It always involves going on a great ride, sometimes even a race track, and no one can really accuse me of getting it wrong, can they? Especially when the main claim is greater tire longevity. I’d like to hang around Austin and eat more barbecue and put 6,000 miles on these new Dunlops, but oh dear, look at the time… Dunlop says its current Sportmax Q3 is and has been the best-selling sport tire in America since its introduction four years ago (as well as of course [...]

Don’t Forget: April Is Check Your Helmet Month

by motorscycle.com
As the first week of April has now come and (almost) gone, we want to remind readers that this month is National Check Your Helmet Month. As such, don’t forget that the average life span for a helmet is three to five years. Numerous times we’ve seen riders wearing helmets far, far, older than five years simply because a visual inspection with their untrained eye deemed the helmet to be in acceptable working order. A lot can happen in five years. Constant pounding from the sun’s rays and a five-year buildup of sweat and oils from your head can take their [...]

Motorcyclist Avoids Injury After Hitting Flying Mattress

by motorscycle.com
An Australian rider is lucky to have escaped serious injury after hitting a mattress that had flown off the back of a trailer. Aaron Wood of Ipswich, Australia, was riding his Honda CBR through a tunnel behind a truck when the untied mattress flew out of its trailer directly towards him. Wood hit the mattress square on at about 50 mph and, miraculously, the bike stayed upright with the mattress rolling under the front wheel before wedging itself against the fairing. The mattress eventually brought Wood to a halt, bucking him up into the air. Wood landed on his feet [...]
