Yes you read that correctly and no it’s not some big elaborate joke.  Harley-Davidson’s “Project LiveWire” is the real deal as they throw their hat in the ring of electric motorcycles. This morning, Harley made possibly their biggest announcement to date with the introduction of their first electric motorcycle.  The LiveWire ditched the classic V-Twin that Harley riders have grown to love and replaced it with an AC Induction electric motor for their latest creation. If you’re a spur of the moment buyer and just have to have this thing right now… well, you can’t.  At least not yet.  The LiveWire currently is not a production bike.  It seems as though Harley is testing the waters with the idea of an electric motorcycle being in their lineup.  Some […]

Recently, a batch of motorcycle helmets was seized in Peterborough, England because they were potentially lethal in the event of an impact.  The original story on the seizure of these helmets can be found here.  In the article, the Principal Trading Standards officer who tested the safety of the helmets is quoted saying, “This would give a rider almost no protection in a crash, increasing the chance of brain injury or death.  You may as well not wear a helmet, they are that dangerous.” The helmets that were seized are very cheaply made and you can tell from the photo that an impact could cause serious damage.  The motorcycle helmets that were seized are the Jiekai helmet models JK 100 and JK1000. To see how these “fake” […]

In a previous post, we discussed how ethanol in gasoline can be harmful to the engines of powersports machines.  Many of us fear that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will eventually make it so that all gasoline will required to be an E15 blend, which would be detrimental to a vast majority of the powersports engines, new and old. Fortunately, the EPA has recently issued a rule proposal to reduce the total amount of ethanol required in transportation fuel nationwide in 2014.  This rule proposal would slow the introduction of E15 gasoline.  The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) just issued a press release calling for all motorcyclists to support this rule proposal. The EPA needs to hear from the people who this will be effecting.  In other […]
