Ducati ushers the Monster into a new aluminum age

With a recent string of changes, Ducati is carving a future through the thick fabric of its own tradition; it ditched the V2 for a V4 in its superbike, the new Multistrada traded the desmo for springs and now, behold, a Monster with no trellis frame.

Honda takes the CBR600RR fully electronic for 2021

The venerable 600cc supersport motorcycle. Few who know their way around a racetrack need any convincing about their excellent capabilities, and yet many who don't wouldn't be seen dead on one given the existence of "leader bikes" with more ccs, more horsepowers and more street cred when it's time to bench race at the local...
