2014 Honda CTX1300 – First Ride This new Honda is not breaking the rules; it's rewriting them.

2014 Honda CTX1300 – First Ride This new Honda is not breaking the rules; it's rewriting them.

Okay, gang, drag out your dog-eared glossary of motorcycle terms, thumb through it to the letter "B," and get ready to do a little editing. Honda, you see, is redefining one of the industry's most established categories: "baggers." For decades, bikes of that sort have been defined by big-inch...

First things first: this is not a reincarnation of the DN-01, Honda's overpriced, oddly styled scooter experiment. What you're looking at is the 2014 Honda CTX700 and CTX700N, the latter of which, at the right angle, reminded me of a poor man's Ducati Diavel when I first laid eyes on it during... 

Part of Honda's rollout of new 2014 models got a slight head start when photos were leaked showing an undisguised CTX1300 caught on public roads during a photo shoot in California. And that's why when Hondapulled the drape off the 2014 CTX1300, we had that sense of deja vu. But you may, too,... 

To say that the 2013 Yamaha YZ250F was badly in need of an update would be an understatement. This motorcycle was not obsolete, but its competitors were leaving it in the dust with regard to innovations. The last bike in its class to retain a carburetor, the 2013 YZ-F had not been updated in... 

The 2014 Kawasaki Z1000 is almost completely new from nose to tail. Knock-down, drag-out streetfighters aren't supposed to look good. The earliest ones were sportbikes that had been ridden hard and wrecked, their mangled bodywork chucked into the dumpster and their clip-ons replaced with an... 

Yamaha is no stranger to changing things up in the motocross game. In 2010, the company's radical redesign of the YZ450F was met with mixed success, pushing the handling to new levels for some but frustrating some other high-profile racers. But even in the face of adversity, the core concept of... 

Kawasaki's Z1000 has long been one of our favorite naked streetbikes, earning the distinction of being named Cycle World's Best Standard in 2010 and 2011. Now, though, there's a new Z1000 in town, a fourth-generation bike that the company says is harder edged and visually tighter, while also... 

We assumed it was gone forever, a beloved model Hondawould never again produce. We were wrong. But we're thrilled to admit our mistake, because not only is the VFR800F Interceptor back in business, the 2014 version is better than ever. Considering that its 750cc and 782cc predecessors have a...
