Daimler motorbike

Word is spreading like wildfire that automotive brand Daimler is toying with the idea of entering the motorcycle arena. Is the company actively pursuing a partner to mate with and produce a superbike line and what would a Daimler motorbike look like?

While Ducati is likely not too worried at this juncture, some sources say that MV Agusta is looking for a company to court for financial padding in order to expand further into new markets. What would the offspring of an MV Agusta and Daimler look like?

2014 Ducati 1199 Superleggera

The 2014 Ducati 1199 Superleggera has arrived.

A supercar crash is always newsworthy, but when it involves a BMW motorcycle dealership, the news spreads like wildfire….or the 458 Ferrari fires! On July 6th, a man drove his Murcielago directly into a display of BMW bikes, plowing them over and severely damaging his hypercar.
