The December 2014 issue of Canadian Biker has now been mailed to our subscribers and is available on newsstands across the country. On the cover is the stunning new Kawasaki Ninja H2R – a bike that is bound to up the ante in the sport bike world with a supercharged 300+ hp engine. Though the H2R is a track-only machine, the rolling missile is the precursor of the H2 which will be available in limited numbers to enthusiasts around the world.
Another bike in the issue with a sporting intent is the new KTM RC 390. It might seem that the new small displacement KTM is set to do battle with the likes of Yamaha’s new R3 and Honda’s CBR300R but – as our contributor Bertrand Gahel discovers – the little orange machine has much higher race ambitions. Just because the displacement is small doesn’t mean the bike is intended for novice riders
Did you ever feel like you wanted to take a short ride over a lot of extremely difficult obstacles? Logs, boulders, firewood? Did you want to work really hard to make it around a seemingly short course? If this sounds like something for you the Red Bull Urban Endurocross is the event to enter. We take a look at this unique race series as it passes through Calgary.
Our Canadian Biker travel story this month takes us to the back-country of Arizona where the sheep and the cattle didn’t mix. Also in the issue we list 10 of the bikes that had the greatest influence over the past 20 years of motorcycling and we ride Harley-Davidson’s Street 750. It is a bike that raises a lot of questions. What are the correct answers to those questions? We will give you our take.
On top of that there are more great stories including new models for 2015 and a beautiful custom with a boardtrack bent.
Enjoy the December 2014 issue of Canadian Biker!
