Harley-Davidson’s 2 Electric Concept Bikes Are Ready And Riding

Harley-Davidson’s 2 Electric Concept Bikes Are Ready And Riding Riding videos show Harley’s lightweight concept bikes are potentially ready for prime time All the buzz of late has been on the bold new LiveWire, but what if we’re missing the forest for the trees? What if LiveWire is a smokescreen? There’s huge value in producing a striking high-tech electric motorcycle as a statement model, but let’s consider who this bike is for. It just doesn’t feel like a viable option for younger Gen X or Gen Y types with high debt-to-income ratios and, form-wise, feels too intimidating for beginning riders.

Five of the best to help increase the ranks of riders

Motorcycling in the United States has always experienced ebbs and flows in the number of bike owners and yearly sales figures tied to the economy. In recent years, however, the growth of owners and buyers has not paced other industries. Fewer people are learning to ride, and it is critical to to turn this trend. Manufacturers have made this a priority, with new models that are more attractive to new and returning riders. On today’s episode of 5 Best Bikes we talk about the best bike to help grow motorcycling.

These Bikes Ran Away From The Circus

These Bikes Ran Away From The Circus Three modified motorcycles were stolen from Gandeys Circus. People sometimes joke about running away to join the circus. Three motorcycles from Gandeys Circus in the U.K. did just the opposite Wednesday night, running away from the circus, in the hands of thieves.

Bonnier Motorcycle Group’s Senior Vice President and Managing Director Andy Leisner joins this episode of 5 Best Bikes. As a member of the board of directors for the Motorcycle Industry Council, Leisner knows much about the challenges—current and future—in growing the numbers for motorcyclists in the United States.

The 10-minute clock as been tossed out the window, giving more time to discuss the choices with more depth and consideration. This means a longer episode as well, but there is so much more detail. After a couple of serious discussions on the merits of the Harley-Davidson LiveWire and Yamaha Wabash electric bicycle, the list was set:

Honda Super Cub

Honda has sold more than 100 million step-through motorcycles worldwide, and the original Cub has been a first bike for nearly as many people. The 2019 Honda Super Cub is easy to ride, friendly, and economical, making it a shoo-in on this list.

The Old BMW K-Bikes Are Weird And Wonderful

The Old BMW K-Bikes Are Weird And Wonderful The "flying brick" was a huge departure from BMW's proven 60-year-old formula. What amazes me the most when I look at classic BMW motorcycles from the early 20th century is how similar their basic design is to modern models. A low-slung boxer engine with shaft drive had always been the fundamental design that differentiates BMWs from other bikes—except when it wasn't. Facing increased competition from the Japanese Big Four and tightening emission standards, BMW was forced to try some different designs in the early 1980s, starting with the K-bikes.

Royal Enfield INT650

Royal Enfield’s INT650 parallel twin is a bargain at $5,799 and just squeaks out its sibling, the Continental GT, on this list. It’s an attractive buy with retro-cool style.

Honda CB300R

Lightweight, big bike styling, and a nimble yet confident chassis makes the CB300R a great motorcycle to nab new riders and keep them hooked.

StaCyc Stability Cycles

While not technically motorcycles, StaCyc’s electric-powered stability cycles have a twist throttle and rear brake to teach youngsters skills to make the jump to a motorcycle sooner and easier.

Honda CRF Trailbikes

Can Motorcycling Help You Lose Weight?.
Riding is good for you in many ways. Is weight loss one of them? Weight loss fads are always changing. Carbs are good. Carbs are bad. Red meat is good. Red meat is bad. Plus you can use statistics to back up any claim you want to make, whether it's true or not. We already know that motorcycling is good for you, but some say that riding can even help you lose weight. To say that motorcycling helps you lose weight goes against the stereotypical image of an older male Harley rider with a big gut, where the only six-pack involved is what he drinks when he reaches his destination (hopefully not before).
