THE CURRENT ISSUE of Canadian Biker
As we often do, we cover a wide spectrum of motorcycles in Issue #358 – all the way from cruisers to ADVs to electric motorcycle to a classic.
Let’s get special and start with a few cruisers. We celebrate the arrival of the 2022 Harley-Davidson CVO bikes. The high-end offerings from Milwaukee were announced later than the initial 2022 bikes. A bigger new motor makes the wheels go faster for both the new CVOs and a new sub-family of “ST” machines including the Low Rider ST.
We also run down other limited edition or “special” offerings from various manufacturers for the upcoming year. There are always opportunities to spend just a little more for the extra bling. Some of those opportunities may surprise you – one-off seats, accessories and watches for example. We did however find one limited bike that is actually less than the “special” version meaning that not everything is going to cost more.
Elsewhere, we take a trip to California to ride the Pikes Peak edition of Ducati’s Multistrada as the Italian company blurs the lines between the ADV and sport segments proving the two can co-exist in the same motorcycle. We also ride BMW’s surprisingly futuristic CE-04 electric scooter. The point is made that for electric two wheeled vehicles to be successful they must be as good, if not better, than the ICE equivalents. Does the CE 04 achieve that goal?
On an island between Victoria and Vancouver we run across a Honda CT70 mounted to the front of a Ford F250. As a result, the sight sent us down memory lane for a look back at the Honda icon. We also spend muddy hours enjoying the Harley-Davidson Pan America and, in doing so, attempt to explain why the ADV segment might be the most fun of all. We drool over an electric motorcycle that went straight from the factory floor to the museum floor (although you will be able to buy one). There is a Dakar recap, a story on the most successful electric platform for two wheels and, gasp!, two pictures of cars (but they both relate to motorcycles!).
All that and more in Canadian Biker #358. We hope you enjoy the issue.
