Already in the 60s Bonneville 2-cylinder parallel twin motorcycles were used for illegal races, directly in London at the Ace Café. Even 50 years later they are still the choice of the wild boys.

The 2018 model year of the Royal Enfield Interceptor marks the return of one of Royal Enfield 's most popular classic motorcycles. From the 60s and 70s, the new Interceptor has taken its charm, which has made it a legend, into our time and preserved. Powered by the air-cooled 650cc parallel twin, the Interceptor's 7 "headlamps, classic round instruments and quilted double seat are all designed in the 60s.

 

Harley-Davidson Chopper

08.05.2019 | 12:00

A chopper is a type of custom motorcycle which emerged in the United States in the mid-1960s. The chopper is perhaps the most extreme of all custom styles, often using radically modified steering angles and lengthened forks for a stretched-out appearance. They can be built from an original motorcycle which is modified ("chopped") or built from scratch. Some of the characteristic features of choppers are long front ends with extended forks often coupled with an increased rake angle, hardtail frames (frames without rear suspension), very tall "ape hanger" or very short "drag" handlebars, lengthened or stretched frames, and larger than stock front wheels. The "sissy bar", a set of tubes that connect the rear fender with the frame, and which are often extended several feet high, is a signature feature on many choppers.

Suzuki GSX-R750 is a family of 750 cc sports motorcycles from Suzuki 's GSX-R series of motorcycles. Looking like a Suzuki Endurance racer, it can be considered to be the first affordable, modern racer-replica suitable for road use. It was introduced at the Cologne Motorcycle Show in October 1984. The original model featured a lightweight aluminum alloy frame, flatslide carbs, twin discs with 4-pot calipers, and 460-millimetre (18 in) tyres both front and rear.

 

Honda CBR 900 Fireblade

06.05.2019 | 12:00

The name Fireblade stands for a whole motorcycle series, which was founded in 1992 with the CBR 900 RR Fireblade. Since 2004, the name has changed due to displacement in CBR 1000 RR Fireblade. The sales name in Germany now was reduced to Fireblade. The highest development goal in all series was the weight reduction of as many components as possible. The first Fireblade undercuts even all mass-produced motorcycles from the smaller 600 cc class with their ready-to-drive weight of approx. 204 kg when they arrive. Thanks to its lightweight construction and the powerful engine, it was able to outclass its then more powerful but also heavier competitors from the "Big Bike" class as well as the then popular four-cylinder super sports motorcycles of the 750 cc class.

Piaggio Vespa 125

As before, Vespa scooters are still part of the streets. The large 125cc, 250cc and 350cc models will run 120km / h and accelerate like a much bigger bike. Thanks to the automatic a fast start at the trafficlights never is a problem. The photo shows a Vespa 125 Sport from the 70s, which was still on the road in 2018.

 

 

BMW K 1200 R

03.05.2019 | 12:00

The naked bike was presented to the media on 15 September 2004 at the Intermot in Munich. Sales start was on 4 June 2005. The K 1200 R is technically very similar to the BMW K 1200 S, but without full fairing, with a higher handlebar, modified power delivery, modified wheelbase and caster. The motorcycle accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.9 seconds and was the most powerful mass-produced muscle bike in the world until the presentation of the Suzuki B-King in 2007.

 

Triumph Thunderbird Sport

02.05.2019 | 12:00

In 1979, the Thunderbird Sport appeared as a successful mix of 60s look and contemporary technology. Completely new was the front 310er double disc brake. And pragmatists were pleased when the bearish 900-cylinder three-cylinder engine sound starts. Just because of this nominally 78 hp engine Triumph seemed to have succeeded with the sport of the big hit. In the test, the engine had proud 85 hp.
