Ducati 899 Panigale Motorcycle

Say goodbye to the 848 Superbike and hello to the 899 Panigale from Ducati! The company’s replacement for its time-honored classic is a welcome addition to the catalog. Boasting 148 horsepower and about 93 lb-ft of torque at 9k RPM, this is the right mix of power and handling for 21st Century travel. The 899 is literally loaded with features including a triple-stage ABS, engine brake control, the Ducati Quick Shifter, traction control, and ride-by-wire. With three-way adjustable suspension and aluminum framing, this should make October one heck of a fun month to ride. (That’s the release month, though we Read More

Ducati Hypermotard

The Ducati Hypermotard is a striking piece of eye candy with a Testastretta 11-degree, L-Twin cylinder (four valves per cylinder), liquid-cooled engine with about 110 horses of power to its credit. (That level of power comes at approximately 9,250 RPM.) Boasting a compression ratio of around 12.8:1, this bike definitely clocks in at better than average without reaching the pinnacle CR of an F1 engine. (Those can go to approximately 17:1. Overkill for us.) We’re definitely not the types of people you’d see riding one of these every day, but if we were, it would be hard to decide between Read More

ICON: The 1000 Quartermaster

ICON and URAL have teamed together for The 1000 Quartermaster, a bike that is too darn pretty to ride. Well, almost. Most of you who are familiar with the URAL will notice there is no sidecar present on this one, which to us is a-okay as we’ve never been able to get that episode of Andy Griffith out of our heads where Barney uses his sidecar to become the town laughingstock. Nevertheless, we’re sure this would look much cooler but are grateful anyway for the omission. The smoky gray color of The Quartermaster really sets it apart from other bikes, Read More

Norton’s Commando 961 Cafe Racer

The Norton’s Commando 961 Cafe Racer may or may not be the most powerful motorbike you’ve ever seen, but with a power output of 80PS at 7,700 RPM, it’s certainly nothing to sneeze at. And with “Racer” right there in the title, you can bet that it brings more pep in its step than the average everyday two-wheeler. But aside from that, it also delivers solid front and rear suspension for a comfortable pleasure cruise along the blacktop. Add to that two carbon stainless steel brakes on the front and a 220mm disc on the back, and you’ve got a Read More

Brammo Empulse

At 64 horsepower, the Brammo Empulse R may not be the fastest bike out there, but for an all-electric, it lays a lot more propulsion down than you’re probably expecting. Fast acceleration and control are maintained at all times thanks to the ultra-light 470-pound weight, an expertly designed chassis, and enough torque for great handling. The goal of the company was to make a bike that handles well, turns fast, and keeps a lean angle throughout. Most of this is accomplished through the electric drivetrain. Brammo has emphasized power delivery and torque to give riders confidence whether on their daily commute or Read More

Ducati 1199 Panigale

We’ve featured plenty of Ducati products here on inStash before, and with each one it seems like the product line keeps improving. To mark the unveiling of the Ducati 1199 Panigale this week at the EICMA International Motorcycle Show in Milan, we’re presenting you with more of the same. This street-ready racer allows for perfect handling and at just 362 pounds, is as lightweight as they come, while the 195 horses this ride is packing delivers plenty of power. The bells and whistles also add a lot of value with an ABS, electronic suspension, three riding modes, Engine Brake Control, Read More

Ducati Monster 1100 Evo

Ducati’s Monster 1100 EVO earns its name through killer good looks and enough power to rip holes in the pavement. But the real advances here are not so monstrous, as Ducati has focused on safety features that confront motorcycling’s dangerous reputation head on.  True to its bad boy good looks, the Monster’s guts are a 100HP L-twin engine, the first two-valve Ducati to pack that many horses. That’s an awesome power level at high revs, and the maker promises super smooth delivery thanks to a more linear torque curve. What that boils down is that the thing moves like a Read More

Ducati Diavel

Ducati Diavel is a new name in the Italian sport-cycle market will have you zipping past traffic and becoming the new envy of every guy you see. Sure, some guys may get all the great chicks, but if you’ve got the jack to make this a part of your garage, we’re sure you’ll find someone in a skirt willing to take a ride on the back of this beast. The Diavel possesses 162 horsepower, and will have gale-force wind slapping at your face in 2.5 seconds. 94 lb-ft of torque gives the Ducati Diavel that extra balance to go along Read More
