Erik Buell Racing

I was really surprised to see EBR at the show, especially after all the news stories about having issues finding investors, yadda, yadda. 1,050 more words

Progressive International Motorcycle Show, Chicago: Harley Davidson Motorcycles

This year I can say I actually walked into the Harley booth. Last year in Cleveland I think I walked by, but decided that it was way too crowded and I didn’t want to wade through all the people. 281 more words

Progressive International Motorcycle Show, Chicago: Triumph's New British Twins

I’m actually a little sore with Triumph regarding their showing in Chicago. Despite the fact that Triumph has a bike for virtually every class of motorcycle, they decided to only bring the 2016 Bonneville “Reborn” models to Chicago; moreover, rumor has it that they also skipped all but select IMS show locations this year. 393 more words

Progressive International Motorcycle Show, Chicago: Ducati Motorcycles, Highlights of Desmodromic Supermodels

Right or wrong, I can’t fight the perception that Ducati is the epitome of (street) motorcycle performance. That being said, I can picture myself on an R1, but I don’t foresee myself in the saddle of a 1299 cc, tire ripping, Panigale; I just can’t fathom shelling out $20K (or more…) to own one, but I certainly wouldn’t turn down a test ride at a track day! 404 more words

Progressive International Motorcycle Show, Chicago: KTM, Highlights from Team Orange

Like Ducati, I can’t help but feel like KTM runs some sort of unicorn factory. What do I mean, unicorn factory? Take the 1290 Super Adventure for instance, the 1301 cc engine makes 160 HP, while the bike weighs 505 pounds (Dry), and has almost 8 inches of suspension travel; how is that possible? 220 more words

Progressive International Motorcycle Show, Chicago: Yamaha Motorcycles Highlights

Stumbling into the Yamaha booth I was immediately taken by the DT-07 flat tracker display. Flat track is on my “to-do” list this year, hopefully I’ll get a chance to see this concept make its way onto the track for real. 454 more words

Progressive International Motorcycle Show, Chicago: BMW Motorrad Highlights

Right or wrong, in my mind, BMW is synonymous with quality; despite recent recalls, which are frankly rampant in the automotive industry as a whole right now for whatever reason. 375 more words
