2019 KTM Super Duke GT Updated!

Rumors filtering down through the ranks has it that when the new version of KTM’s not-so-old uber tourer gets here later in the year, it’s going to be sporting a swell TFT display like the one on brother Super Duke R, along with the other Dukes’ promiscuous split LED headlight and a new windscreen. We are as nothing without a Thin Film Transistor display, like this on on Super Duke R. The winner of our little sport-touring comparo back in April already had all the performance hard- and software more…

Is a Baby Africa Twin Coming from Honda?

The Brits over at MCN have an interesting story right now, whereby Honda is considering making a middleweight version of its Africa Twin adventure-tourer.

2018 TVS Apache RR 310 Revealed

TVS Motors revealed its new Apache RR 310, the most advanced model ever released by the Indian manufacturer. While the 2018 TVS Apache RR 310 will likely never be brought over to the U.S. market, it is important for one reason: it’s essentially the precursor for a BMW G310RR. BMW and TVS worked together to develop a platform using a 313cc DOHC Single-cylinder engine and trellis frame. The platform has already resulted in two BMW models, the G310R and the G310GS. The first sportbike version, however, is from TVS, giving…

Is a Rocket-Powered Bicycle a Motorcycle?

Frenchman Francois Gissy made this record run over three years ago at Circuit Paul Ricard, but it only came to my attention yesterday. Unsure what kind of bicycle wheels don’t fly apart at 207 mph (333 kph), a speed Gissy attained after using up only about 750 meters of the Mistral Straight thanks to hydrogen peroxide boost, but everything did indeed remain intact. The Ferrari running alongside the bicycle, okay starting out alongside it, puts that speed into perspective. More craziness over here at Swissrocketman.com Is a Rocket-Powered Bicycle a…
