The 2018 Fat Bob is a Whole New Harley

Posted in Motorcycles and Rides

The forthcoming 2018 Softail Fat Bob has been completely re-designed. No longer a beefed-up Dyna, it is now powered by a rigid mounted 107 C.I. V-Twin, making it Harley’s highest performance cruiser. It’s lighter, stiffer, and obviously faster than the outgoing model. The headlight and SDBV fork up front give it an aggressive look and the rear end is cleaned up with a single under-seat coil over replacing the old dual shock set-up. This is a new direction for Harley and we like where it’s going.

Posted in Exotic and Rides

Ferrari’s newest GT model is the drop-top Portofino, named for the scenic Italian city where we’d all like to drive one. But this is no Sunday driver. It’s a sleek 2-seater powered by a 590 horsepower turbo V8. It is the first GT model to feature Electric Power Steering for improved driver response, and an electronic rear differential paired with the F1-Trac suspension improves handling when it really counts. Remember to put the retractable hard top up when taking it to its top speed of 198 MPH.

Unveiled at the annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance auto event, the Prototype 9 from Infiniti is a 1940s-inspired electric race car.

Unfortunately, it’s one-of-a-kind. At least for now.
