The air-cooled 865cc power plant is a modern design but styled to look like authentic parallel-twin of the 1960s, right down to the dummy pushrods and ‘carburettors’ that hide the modern fuel injectors. But beneath the retro looks lies a very current and usable motorcycle that appeals to new and experienced motorcyclists alike. Thumb the electric starter and today’s Bonneville comes to life instantly and with the distinctive tone that only a parallel twin can deliver. A healthy 68PS and 68Nm of torque give the modern day Bonneville peppy performance that is at home both in the city and on the open road.
The Harley-Davidson Sportster 833 is propelled by an air-cooled, Evolution unit with a displacement of 883 cc. The engine is combined with a five speed transmission and cranks out 67 Nm of torque at 4500 rpm. Is also worthy of being mentioned that the fuel consumption is rated at 4.6 liters / 100 km.
2012 HONDA CBR
The 2012 Honda CBR600RR melds a light and compact chassis with impeccable power delivery to create a balanced combination that remains a favorite among sport riders. In racing, no other 600cc machine has won more AMA and World Supersport championships than Honda’s CBR600. Also available with Honda’s unique Combined ABS for the pinnacle of sportbike braking performance, the CBR600RR continues to lead the way in the middleweight class.
If retro-style cruising is your thing, the Harley-Davidson FLSTF Fat Boy has all the right bits in the right places, from the big Milwaukee V-twin motor to the characteristic disc wheels and even the badge on the tank. Not the most versatile or comfortable of Hogs, but the Harley-Davidson FLSTF Fat Boy is almost certainly the best looking.
2006 TRIUMPH THUNDERBIRD
Surprisingly cool, versatile and fun retro – indeed one of the first. Triumph Thunderbird 900 took the pleasing and fruity Triumph Trident and refashioned it into an althogether more stylish package. There’s handling, comfort and decent poke inside those cream and chrome walls, while cred is guaranteed by the name on the tank. Nice.
2006 TRIUMPH BONNILLE 900
Triumph aimed the Bonneville like an arrow straight at the heart of Harley’s 883 Sportster. With a heritage to rival the Yank’s and a better riding performance the Triumph Bonneville is unquestionably the better motorcycle. The handling is more than respectable, the brakes markedly better and, of course, it’s British.
2006 THRUXTON 900
The Thruxton’s 865cc, twin cylinder power plant is the most powerful of Triumph’s twin-cylinder line up. It shares the Bonnie’s 360° firing interval but adds ’hot’ camshaft profiles, a compression ratio of 10.2:1 and megaphone-style exhausts. Peak power output of 70PS is delivered at 7,250rpm and peak torque of 72Nm arrives at 5,750rpm. Wrapping the motor is a precisely crafted chassis that inspires confidence and delivers a real sporting character. The sturdy, spring preload adjustable, 41mm telescopic forks and twin rear shocks give superb suspension action and compliance. Sharper steering geometry, a wheelbase of 1477mm and an 18inch front wheel aids steering input. A fully floating 320mm front disc and twin-piston brake caliper provide powerful, controllable braking performance.
2006 SPORTSTER RACER
The muscular profile of the XL Sportster 1200 Roadster make it clear this is the Sportster for performance. Dual front disc brakes and a high-mount tachometer are standard. The high-performance XL Evolution 1200 engine puts out 70 hp and 79 ft. lbs. of torque. Wide, polished handlebars, a 3.3-gallon fuel tank and 13-spoke cast aluminum wheels are classic Sportster style. Laced steel wheels are an option. A new sidestand reduces the effort required to lift the bike off the stand by 40 percent. Offered in eight solid and SunGlo color choices for 2006, with a new tank graphic on select colors and new wrinkle-black engine and covers.
For some, the Harley-Davidson FLHR Road King is the best Harley of all, mixing the 50s style of the Fat Boy with the versatility and comfort of the Glides thanks to its twin shock chassis and built in panniers and screen. For extra cool there’s also the Harley-Davidson FLHR Road King Classic and Harley-Davidson FLHR Road King Custom versions.
1995 DYNA CONVERTIBLE
The Harley-Davidson Dyna Convertable is the Harley motorcycle for the real Easy Rider/Chopper fans. Basic Hog architecture (big twin mill, twin shock ‘Dyna’ rear end) gets the full-on ‘bro’ treatment with raked out, widely-splayed (hence the Wide moniker) forks, 21-inch wire front wheels, ‘bobtail’ rear fender and forward-mounted ‘highway’ pegs. As a motorcycle, ponderous. As a style statement, the Harley-Davidson Dyna Convertable is incomparable.
