Triumph’s limited edition Rocket 3 TFC is a reminder that Brits are still building some seriously badass bikes. The model was completely redesigned for 2019 & just for kicks, they made a limited monster: a sport-cruiser ridiculously over-powered by a 2,500cc three-cylinder that cranks out 168 horsepower and 163 lb-ft of torque. Hint: hold on tight. Only 225 of these big triples will reach the U.S. market.

Bandit 9 Goes Full Chrome On This Classic British Bike

Posted in Motorcycles and Rides

Generally speaking, the Royal Enfield Continental GT is a fun but modest little bike. Good for backroads and scenic Sunday spins. This one though, built-up and chromed-out by the crew at Bandit 9 is more of a showpiece. They gave it handmade tins and a rear cowl plus built custom parts for pretty much everything: headlight, fork, swingarm, speedo, pegs, levers, brakes, and on and on. All of it, as you can see, is dipped in mirror-like chrome.

Curtiss Motorcycles’ all-electric Hera looks like it was pulled off the set of a futuristic sci-fi film but bike buffs will recognize the century-old influence of Curtiss’ original 1907 V8.

Makers of the Arc Vector are billing it as the most advanced electric bike ever made. And it’s not just it’s Tron-like design and impressive numbers: 0-60 in 3.1, top seed 120MPH, and a range of up to 200 miles. The bike comes with a helmet that acts as the keyless ignition and features a HUD that delivers speedometer, power & SAT/NAV data. A haptic riding jacket is also part of the tech package, which gives driver feedback, like a tap on the shoulder if there’s a vehicle in the blind spot, or calculating the bikes dynamic position based on G forces. It can even sync with music streaming from the helmet to amplify bass you can feel in your body.
