THE CURRENT ISSUE
Canadian Biker : Issue #359
NEW MOTOR DROPS
Peering from the shadows on the cover of Canadian Biker is the Harley-Davidson Nightster. It is not often a new motor rather than a new model is the big story. In this case the motor is the news as Harley-Davidson drops the smaller version of the Revolution mill into another model in the new Sportster family. We look to what else might come with the 975 tucked into the frame.
NEW MODEL SIGHTINGS
Honda is employing an interesting approach to releasing new motorcycles. The process seems to revolve around not bringing the bikes to Canada. In the last issue we discussed a new sport tourer, the NT1100. Not coming to Canada. We also reminisced about the Honda CT70 after seeing a vintage example. Shortly after that issue went to press came the announcement of the CT70’s rebirth as the new ST125 – but again not in Canada. The story doesn’t end there as yet another very nice bike from Honda has broken cover … elsewhere. There are several reason why a bike may not be announced for the Canadian market including supply chain problems but we do hope at least one or two of these new bikes eventually land here. But which ones?
All this talk of inflation got you down? Good news! We go through our picks of several very nice bikes to be found on the used market. Here’s a chance to buy the bike that was too expensive or perhaps not in your wheelhouse when it was new. Choosing a used bike is a personal experience.Your choice of bike is going to be different from our choices but we do our best to line up some great options that can be found for less than $6500. Low kms! Freshly tuned! Yeah maybe…
THE “MORE POWER” CUSTOM
On the custom front we have two very different offerings. One is all about “More Power” and involves the installation of a monster 143 cubic inch motor into a Harley-Davidson touring bike. When even more power is required why not add nitrous? The quest for the “fastest bagger in town” seems to have been solved.
The other bike defines the maxim “necessity is the mother of invention”. When his friends wanted to go on an adventure trip through rock, mud and the backcountry, one inventive rider does a very admirable job of turning the only bike he owned, a Speed Triple, into a ADV machine. It worked.
Elsewhere we look at an interesting new electric offering, ponder what electric bikes are coming from Can-Am and reveal the legacy of one small bike that introduced the monoshock to the world. Enjoy!
