Located just south of San Diego and Imperial counties, it is a well-traveled destination for riders and racers all over the world. Being based in California, the Cycle World crew makes frequent trips to the peninsula for work and play every year. The rules are few, the people are friendly, and the riding is varied.

While Zero Motorcycles may have no heritage of its own, this build by Untitled Motorcycles perfectly captures the retro vibe in a thoroughly modern way. UMC has done an amazing job of pointing the way forward with retro builds like these. Even the model name, XP , is an amusingly techy but retro

5 Best Bikes To Grow Motorcycling

5 Best Bikes To Grow Motorcycling 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.

Known as the Zero XP , the bike began life as the firm’s £17,990 (for the standard model) SR/F, which arrived in dealers in May 2019 and produces 110bhp and If the Zero XP looks futuristic, it’s because electric motorcycles like the SR/F are the future . "From the outset I knew that I didn’t want to hide the

One could make a strong argument that electric motorcycles have no right getting in on the retro styling trend that many traditional manufacturers are following. While they have a long history of classic models to draw inspiration from, electric bikes are so new that they have no such heritage. Seeing what Untitled Motorcycles came up with after Zero handed them an SR/F to play with, though, has thoroughly convinced me that not only can electric bikes be made retro, they can even improve on the trend.

7 Production Cafe Racers For 2019

7 Production Cafe Racers For 2019 You can get these retro styles fresh from the factory. Whether you’re a purist, casual admirer, or serious buyer looking at the wide range of current production cafe-racer offerings, you’d have to admit this current collection is pretty damn cool. Snobs may turn their noses up at these factory-produced bikes looking to capture retro aesthetics, but that’s their prerogative. We, on the other hand, absolutely love seeing brands looking to experiment with the boundaries of what the cafe genre is capable of, not just where it’s been.

That 's the whole idea behind retros . Classic styling cues—in this case, air-cooled V-Twin motor, spoked wheels, big, round headlight, crisply shaped fuel tank, flat seat—but with modern brakes, electrics, oil-tightness and reliability. It's a formula that certainly has worked in the four-wheel world

The production SR/F is already styled as an attractive naked sport bike. Hugo Eccles of Untitled Motorcycles has stripped it down even further to its bare essentials, then added just enough stylistic components to evoke the cafe racers of old in a 21st century way. The clip-on handlebars, digital gauges, and of course the fact that it's an electric bike are thoroughly modern, but the completely stripped down styling is exactly how they used to make old bikes fast. As Colin Chapman of Lotus famously said, "Simplify and add lightness."

Those old motorcycles, however, were limited by the way motorcycles worked at the time. For example, they had to have a tank on top, to gravity feed gas to the carburetors, to go into the engine, and then have the exhaust flow away from the rider to avoid burns. None of these constraints apply to an electric bike, because it doesn't work that way. Its design is still similar for familiarity's sake. You can see gauges on top of a gas tank on most cruisers, but holding the gauges is the only reason for this panel's existence on the XP. The only other solid panels on the bike are there for your knees to grab. Everything else is an open design. There is nothing on this bike that isn't absolutely necessary to its function.

UMC has done an amazing job of pointing the way forward with retro builds like these. Even the model name, XP, is an amusingly techy but retro throwback to the obsolete but loved Windows XP operating system. All this bike needs is a retro video game soundtrack to be complete.

Here's What Happens When A Dealer Sets Up Your New Bike.
Is this the best unboxing video ever? If you like motorcycles and you like puzzles, dealer setup might be the job for you—it’s basically like putting together a life-sized mechanical puzzle. All the parts are most likely in the box that comes from the manufacturer; all you have to do is put them in place, take the battery and throw it on a charger, fill fluids, and tweak as necessary.
