Are you one of those people who struggle to tear themselves from the arms of Morpheus every morning? Who roll painfully out of bed to initiate a semblance of awakening. Of those who walk muddy to their bathroom, their body lifted but their mind crushed by the day ahead ?
The Springer owes its existence to its particular but oh so exuberant fork. A very rarely used model: a parallelogram fork. And it does not date from yesterday: the first model of Springer appeared shortly after the 2nd world war; and the principle itself dates from the 1930s.
Along with the evolution of its engine, the V7 Classic evolved and became V7 Stone – a name formerly attached to the California, in its stripped down version. In fact, the range is available in 3 versions: the V7 presented here, which is the access model, then the V7 Special, more vintage, and the V7 […]
The Yamaha YZR-M1 was unveiled on February 4, 2019, in Jakarta (Indonesia). Still entrusted to Valentino Rossi and Maverick Vinalès, will this M1 be the return to favor for the Japanese manufacturer ? In any case, this is the stated ambition of a whole factory which has spared no effort this winter to try to […]

It can also embark on travel, like a Varadero but with 15 kg less. The latter is more powerful and more suitable for the long haul due to remarkable protection and a very comfortable saddle; but the Africa Twin is capable of venturing into small roads. On rough roads, the bike pulls out wonderfully well. […]
