2017 Bandit9 Eve Liquid Black is a bespoke, hand crafted work of rolling art … and it May just Be the World’s Sexiest Moped!
Legendary moped builder Sachs rocked the established tiny-bike world when it launched the original Sachs MadAss bike in 2004. Since its launch, numerous attempts have been made to bring the bike to the US, with the bike having been sold under the Pierspeed and Tomberlin brands or as the AMG Nitro. The biggest obstacle for […]
You meet the nicest people on a Honda- and, if this new concept is any indication, you’ll soon get to meet the nicest people on an all-electric Honda Cub!
The Bolt M-1 is a cafe latte carrying pedal/electric moped with a 40 MPH top speed and an “Economy” setting that makes it 100% sidewalk legal. Oh, yeah!
Germany’s famous SIP Scooter Shop heads to the French Mediterranean island of Corsica on an epic, scooter-powered road trip!
Motoped just launched an off-road/extreme survival version of its lightweight, Honda-powered moped. Will it be as good off-road as it is on-road?
Mopeds are small, cheap, and get tremendous miles per gallon (MPG) – but many old-style 2 stroke mopeds are serious polluters. How do they stack up to cars?
Not everyone sees a cut-down, steampunk masterpiece when they look at the rusted remains of an old Honda P25. Not everyone, however, is Chicara Nagata.
The bike you see here is called Eve. Built by Daryl Villanueva of China’s Bandit Nine motorcycle shop, the bare metal moped is headed for production.
Engineered in Germany, styled in Italy, and marketed by Spaniards, the QuaZZar-e electric scooter promises the best scootering that Europe has to offer.
We’ve covered a number of Kickstarter hopefuls looking to launch their company through crowdsourcing the funding they need to produce their vision for the next craze in women’s cycling underwear or to introduce a dirt bike aesthetic to urban moped commuters. We talked about Local Motors’ first commercial product, the Rally Fighter off-road sportscar, back […]
Well-known for building high-end, vintage-style mopeds, California based Derringer Cycles has taken its first steps away from the internal combustion engine with a Kickstarter launch for its new Derringer E-Bike. Like the more traditional Derringer products, the new E-Bike can be pedaled or motivated by a motor. It’s a little strange to see an open […]
What you’re buying when you pick up a Motoped is actually a kit. It’s a frame, in other words, with all the difficult engineering like mounting points, swingarm, and the end result brings all the awesome action of a BMX downhill run to your morning commute.
With more than 60 million sold, Honda’s Cub is a big deal, and it’s in need of a serious technical update. The new 2014 Honda Cross Cub is that update – and it promises to take the best of Honda’s Cub and mix in the best part’s of “my” generation’s Honda icon: the Ruckus. How does it stand up to those two?
My long-standing claims that the antics of a moped gang (club?) like the Hell’s Satans or Corpses From Hell constitutes “green” news rests on 2 things. First, their bikes get about 100 mpg, which seems like big news in an age when GM is touting 30 mpg cars in its ads. Second, these guys and gals have found a way to make the “green” aspect of their mopeds totally irrelevant – they’re just sweet rides.
Before they became the de-facto European streetbike for guys who wear flat-brimmed hats bbut can’t afford a Ducati, KTM motorcycles were the stuff of off-road legend. With the introduction of the first Duke, they practically invented the idea of a roadworthy stunt bike. Now, KTM is going back to its crazy, road-terror roots with their […]
The new-for-2013 Voltitude is an all-electric, Swiss Army bicycle that promises high-end folding construction and a 25 mile range. Perfect for commuters!
Despite my much-professed and well-documented love for scooter-y things, the reborn Lambretta LN125 decided to bestow a tester to Spain’s Motorpasion … but they did such a great job reviewing the sexy little bike that I can hardly complain. Let’s face it, if your article involves riding a scooter inside a diner I think you […]
One of the mental stumbling blocks most people have with EVs has been the long charge time that interrupts long trips. Granted, even with a 2-hour quick charge system in place, that’s a real issue (and if you don’t believe that, spend 2 hours at a Flying J truckstop getting ultra-murdered). That’s what makes battery-swap […]
