Despite the versatility of a scrambler-style bike, there are very few factory-built scramblers on the market but soon there will be another. This week at the Intermoto expo in Cologne, Ducati unveils its new 803-cc Scrambler in 4 different trims, ranging from the 70s-inspired Classic edition to the dirt-craving Urban Enduro edition. Starting at $8595, the new Scrambler is the lowest priced bike in the Ducati lineup.
The TT coupe has always been Audi’s most unisex car. But as the design has evolved it continues to look more like a man’s car. S versions of the 2-seater make it feel like one, too. For 2015, Audi is releasing 2 models. The standard TT is a 230-horse hardtop and the TTS Roadster is a 310-horse soft-top.
Roland Sands Design took a sparkling new 2014 Indian Chieftain and completely desconstructed the 800 pound beast to create a nimble 1930s race-inspired board tracker. This meant building everything but the engine from scratch: a new frame with a single-sided rigid rear-end, new hand-built titanium exhaust, gas tank, & springer front-end, electrical overhaul, etc.
If you want a one-off custom Harley, here’s another compelling reason to choose Taiwan-based Rough Crafts for your build. What was once a stock Dyna Street Bob is now called Urban Cavalry. On top of loads of performance mods, the RC crew gave this bike a new front-end, a handmade tail section, a titanium 2-into-1 exhaust and more. via
Like a private jet minus the wings, the ultra-luxury 2015 Bentley Mulsanne Speed is packed with a 530-horse V8 motor tuned to produce an ungodly 811 lb-ft. of torque, more than any muscle car on the market and maybe enough to actually take flight.
This new Tire Pressure Monitoring System from FOBO uses Bluetooth 4.0 and individual tire sensors to actively monitor pressure and provide real time data to user’s smartphones via the free TPMS app. But just like the Check Engine and Oil light in the car’s dash, you have to act on the info you receive from this device for it to really help.
The supercharged, twin-turbo Mercedes-AMG GT is the brand’s new flagship sports coupe. When it’s released next year, it will be available in 2 trims options, both boasting a 4-liter, 456-horse V8 pushing top speeds pretty near 200MPH.
The new baby Jag, The 2016 Jaguar XE no longer shares old Ford body parts; it’s completely redesigned: efficient new engines—one model offering 75MPG; a new interior highlighted by an Apple & Android compatible 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and of course, a sporty new body design.
Low, light, and easy to modify, the Mazda Miata has long been a favorite of weekend track-day racers. The 2016 MX-5 Miata was just unveiled and though performance specs have not been released yet, this new model is 220-lbs. lighter than the last model and with Mazda’s Kodo Design, it is visibly lower and wider, as well.
In America, the XC90 has been one of the most popular Volvos. For 2015, the super-safe Swedish SUV has been completely re-designed inside & out. The interior looks incredible, highlighted by a Tesla-like vertical info-tainment screen. The exterior got softer, less boxy lines and a front end featuring T-shaped LED lights. A variety of engine options will be available, including a 400-hp hybrid.
