Welcome to ADVENTURE SPORT! The all-new BMW S1000XR marks the logical next step for BMW, combining its oh-so-good superbike-derived sport bike engine with the adventure traits of its GS dual sport range. What you've got is something more along the lines of a sport touring motorcycle with dual sport cred and 160 horsepower, but you'll have to pick up the latest issue for the full lowdown!
Also tested in the September issue is the feisty little Honda CB300F, the standard, naked version of Honda's new-for-2015 Honda CBR300R. Based on the same platform with the same engine, the upright riding position provides a more relaxing perch than the sporty R version. How does it fare in today's growing introductory metric bike market? Grab the September issue to find out!
For the touring fan we stay local and take a nice long weekend tour along the north shore of Lake Erie, where Senior Editor Jason Thorpe cruises the coast and brings back a report of gorgeous lake views, tasty food, wonderful beaches and easy riding.
If you're a race fan we've got oodles of coverage for you, including an interview with X Games athlete Doug Lawrence, a profile of the exciting nitro bikes of the CMDRA Pro Dragster division, and a Rapid Classics article on the Suzuki TR750 racer of the 1970s.
Add in our regular mix of industry news, product reviews and the intriguing ramblings of our talented columnists, and... well, you've just got to pick up your own copy to see what the September issue of Inside Motorcycles is all about!
