Despite how the past couple of years have gone in the world, 2022 is shaping up to be a very exciting year for both the motorcycles we ride and the protective riding gear we wear. New models from Ducati, Husqvarna, Harley-Davidson, and the Big Four from Japan are arriving at dealerships, ready for riders new and old to fall in love with them.

Is There A Bigger Strategy Behind The TVS Ronin?

admin

There are modern classic motorcycles, and neo-retro styles, in popular motorcycle parlance, underscoring design languages which have their origins in heritage and legacy, but the underpinnings and features of contemporary motorcycle engineering. A typical modern classic is a 1960s-inspired design, but with the platform, engine, features and electronics of a thoroughly modern motorcycle. Sometimes, “modern classic” is also substituted with “neo-retro” flavour; motorcycles with similar heritage inspired design, but more modern, than retro.

The Story Behind the Resurgence of the Brand

admin

For the longest time, if you mentioned the name Royal Enfield, the first thing most people thought of was a cheap, not-well-made motorcycle out of India that was a pale shadow of the original Royal Enfield company from the UK. More properly known as Royal Enfield Motors, the India branch of the company was set up mostly as an engine and components production branch, with those parts being shipped back to the UK—but after a few years of its establishment in 1955, it made more sense for the Indian branch to build the entire bike.
