Top 10 Bikes Of EICMA 2017

Nov 23, 2017 - 10:16 AM - by Motorcycle.com


While you might already be satiated with the Thanksgiving Feast we served up over the last couple of weeks about all the new bikes that might be coming to the World’s Biggest Motorcycle Exposition, the new bikes that did appear at EICMA, and the future new bikes that might be in the works for next year’s EICMA – have you watched our full-color live-action videos of all of them?

You got your Vitpilen 701 and 401, your Panigale V4, your Z900 RS and RS Cafe, your all-new KTM 790 Duke, that tasty H2 SX, your Honda CB1000R nee Neo Sports Cafe, and so many more yada, ad infinitum… we’ve already covered them all in print and in glorious 1080p HD. But have you seen all ten of our Top Ten bikes from EICMA all wrapped up in one tidyish package, narrated by yours truly? (I feature a face for radio and the narrative skills of a writer.) Not until now you haven’t. Enjoy, this one’s on the house. Really they’re all on the house in the land of MO, you aren’t paying a red cent for any of it, you freeloaders!

Top 10 New Motorcycles Around $10,000

Oct 16, 2017 - 12:17 PM - by Motorcycle.com



I used to think 10 Big Ones was a lot of dough ’till I started pricing new pickup trucks. Now, I realize it’s chicken feed. Let me eat cake. Sure, yes, I know there are great used bargains for half that much, but a private seller’s not going to give you a 1% APR for three years like Suzuki does, you’re not going to ride off on the shiniest, newest bike on the block, and you won’t have the inner warmth of knowing you’ve done your part to stimulate the moto-economy.

Ask MO Anything: Is Clutchless Shifting Bad For My Transmission?

Oct 03, 2017 - 10:31 AM - by Motorcycle.com


Yes, it’s all true. Well, it kind of depends on your bike. Some motorcycles with great big flywheels and big gears, like many Harleys and some BMW Boxers, need the clutch – or at least a little clutch – for nearly every shift. Most sportbikes only need you to use the clutch to pull away from stops and for the shift from first to second gear.

At slow, around-town speeds, we mostly use at least a little clutch to shift anyway; you don’t need to pull the lever all the way in every time you use it. But if you’re steadily accelerating, and especially at WOT (wide open throttle), you’ll find that after second gear, if you roll the throttle closed just enough to unload the driveline, for just a split second, with your toe pressing on the lever, then third gear will slip right in without using the clutch at all. Fourth, 5th and 6th will slip in even easier since the gaps between them are increasingly smaller. Done smoothly, it’s no harder on your gearbox than using the clutch.
