Harley-Davidson’s Pan America Police Motorcycle Is the Best One Yet.

Harley-Davidson’s motorcycles have a long and colorful history as being part of America’s police force. In fact, the MoCo has been supplying trusty two-wheelers to the police force since 1908—that’s right, for more than a century. That being said, however, no Harley-Davidson police motorcycle currently in service can hold a candle to this badass police bike we at AMERiders think.

Designed and executed by Laidlaw Harley-Davidson, a dealer located east of Los Angeles, the Pan America Police Concept will surely leave crooks nowhere to run. As we all know at this point, the Harley-Davidson Pan America is well and truly a capable, go-anywhere machine. In fact, the wonderful people over at RevZilla even compared it to the legendary BMW R 1250 GS in one of their episodes of CTXP. Granted, they unanimously chose the R 1250 GS as the better adventure bike, but the mere fact that the Pan America was pitted against this bike is a testament to just how much potential it has.

police

With that, Laidlaw Harley-Davidson put its creative chops to good use and created this menacing police bike which I certainly would never want to see tailing me in my rear-view mirror. Showcased at the Orange County Traffic Officers Association’s annual Police Motor Rodeo, this bike has been decked out with loads of features designed specifically for putting this bike’s go-anywhere capabilities to good use in a law-enforcement setting. For starters, it gets the optional factory wire-spoke wheels and heavy-duty skid plate for, you know when the pursuit goes beyond the confines of paved roads.

Adding to the list of upgrades, Laidlaw Harley-Davidson added a set of panniers and a large top case for additional carrying capacity. Of course, standard-issue police kit such as red and blue LED flashers give the bike an unmistakable police bike aesthetic. The LED accessories continue to make their way to the handguards, which are equipped with flashing lights. Auxiliary LED lights and another set of red and blue flashing LEDs can also be found positioned underneath the bike’s headlight.

Bad Land’s H-D Akira Is Agile and Ready to Blast Through City Streets

The world of customized Harley-Davidson motorcycles is so diverse that it is virtually impossible not to come across a worth-remembering design on a daily basis. Born like all others of its kind “agile and ready to blast through city streets,” the 750 was altered by a Japanese shop called Bad Land. And by altered, we mean drastically so, as this thing, now called Akira, looks nothing like the stock two-wheeler Harley made back in 2017. AMERiders has the details for you.

akira

There are two major things that catch the eye as soon as the bike comes into view. In random order, they are the gold Ohlins front fork, and the solid-design wheels made by Rick’s MotorCycles sized 19 inches front and 18 inches rear and wrapped in Avon Cobra tires.

Combine these game-changing elements fitted on the build with things like a custom front fender, custom headlight, and the unique-looking exhaust system (all of Bad Land make), and you’ve got yourself a motorcycle like no other in the Harley custom world.

Bad Land may have contributed a lot of parts for this build (full list of extras here), but other big names of the industry were involved to some degree or another as well. The front brake caliper is a Brembo, Performance Machines supplied the control kit, and Ken’s Factory was responsible for things like the mirrors and LED lights.

The stock engine of the Street does not seem to be modified, except for the addition of the new exhaust system and air cleaner.

The Akira was shown for the first time back in 2018, but we are not being told how much it cost to put together like this.

Trailblazer Faye Ho Team Principal wants more women motorcycle racers.

Women motorcycle riders have found recent success in world-class motorcycle racing. Ana Carrasco became the first woman to win a World Championship in solo motorcycle racing when she captured the Supersport 300 crown in 2018. This year, fellow Spaniard María Herrera juggles both MotoE and Supersport World Championship duties. AMERiders has the story.

However, for every gain, there’s also a setback, and misogyny (conscious or unconscious) still exists in the sport, just like it does in most sports that started off male and women have started competing in. To help close the representation gap, FHO Racing will field two female riders in the HEL Performance British Junior Supersport Championship. With 16-year-old Charlotte Marcuzzo and 17-year-old Scarlett Robinson in the saddle, FHO Racing will mentor and support the two young riders in the competitive Junior class.

While Team Principal Faye Ho leads the initiative to get more women on the grid, she’s also a trailblazer herself.

“I am delighted to announce our new association with Charlotte and Scarlett for the remainder of the season,” said Ho. “It was always a huge ambition of mine to become a team owner in the Bennetts British Superbike Championship, and to make that dream a reality this season was a huge achievement for me, especially to be the only woman currently in that position.”

women motorcycle riders

The opportunity won’t only put Faye in the spotlight, but it will also bolster the two young riders.

“This is massive for me and I feel that already we are getting noticed more, especially because of the color scheme,” stated Robinson. “If this can help to raise our profile more then it will hopefully also mean we can add to our existing partners, who make it possible for us to go racing.”

Of course, to open doors for future female riders, the FHO team will need to prove competitive in a scrappy Junior Supersport class. Under Ho’s tutelage, Stuart Easton won the Macau GP in 2010. Currently, Isle of Man TT winner Peter Hickman and Spanish rider Xavi Flores also ride for the Ho’s BMW Superbike squad, adding pedigree to the FHO outfit.

“This new association means that as a race-winning team in Britain’s biggest motorsport championship, we can offer advice and guidance on how to further their careers and really champion women within the sport,” Ho added.” I am hoping that this new collaboration will also bring new interest to the project and we are welcoming any brands who would like to be associated in supporting their dream to get in contact.”

The Newest Custom V-Rod Is a Harley-Davidson Giotto 11 by Box39

For all intents and purposes, the V-rod family of muscle bikes made by Harley-Davidson went extinct four years ago, following a presence on the market of 16 years. But as is the case with pretty much all Harley machines, if it’s no longer being made, that doesn’t mean it is no longer around. AMERiders gives you the details on this beauty.

It’s not exactly clear how many V-Rods (or bikes of the VRSC family, if you want to get all fancy) were made by the Americans during that time (aside from 16 years of production, there were also about 11 models in the family, if we count the track-bred Destroyer), but the reality remains a good chunk of them come back to roam the roads as custom projects.

giotta 11

Custom projects that are not exactly born in America, as the country’s garages seem to be ignoring the model, but over in Europe, where both the Germans and the Russians seem to have a soft spot for it.

The one you’re looking at was brewed in Russia by a garage called Box39. These guys have an entire family of customized V-Rods in their portfolio, one called Giotto, and the bike you see here is the Giotto 11.

Like all others before it, it wears a set of in-house-made wheels, sized 21 inches front and 18 inches rear, fitted at the end of a pneumatic suspension system. A plastic body kit, this time specced in silver, wraps around the body to give it a distinctive look. We also get to see a new Akrapovic exhaust system fitted in there, the only upgrade to the muscle bike’s powertrain we are aware of.

The V-Rod started out as a 2014 model year, but work on it was over in 2021, making this one of the newest customized V-Rods on the market. Sadly, we are not being told how much it cost the customer to have it converted into this.

Norimasa “Ken” Tada Designer of the Kawasaki Z1 Passed Away

Norimasa “Ken” Tada, the designer of the original Kawasaki Z1, died on August 29, 2021. He had been hospitalized for some time with problems related to a carotid aneurysm. He leaves behind a wife, friends, and fans around the world who fondly cherish the lasting legacy of the Z1 to this day. AMERiders has the story for you.

Earlier in August, Kawasaki Europe lifted the covers on its 2022 Z900RS SE, which bears a distinct graphical homage to the original Z1. If you’re unfamiliar with the original story of the development of that bike, it’s pretty phenomenal and tells you a lot about Tada. 

Prior to his death, Tada was a co-administrator of the Z1 Historical group on Facebook. Thus, members, there were able to interact with and glean unique insights into their treasured bikes, directly from the man who designed them. In 2012, he offered up his recollections of the design process to the group. 

tada

Immense amounts of pressure can make even the toughest nut crack—or, if the circumstances are just right, it can create diamonds. Given the trajectory the Z1 set Kawasaki on in the early 1970s, this story would definitely seem to be an example of the latter option.  

On March 1, 1971, Kawasaki assigned Tada the extremely daunting task of creating an entire design, including a full mock-up of the Z1. He had to do it by himself, with zero assistants to help him—and he had to have it completed by March 31, 1971. There are no typos there. Kawasaki gave the man a single month to get it done, according to Tada. Normally, such a process would take four to six months, and would involve a team comprised of several people.  

You see, after Honda first announced its groundbreaking CB750 in October 1968, Kawasaki went into overdrive. Plans for its next bike, the N600, were almost immediately put on hold. Once Tada was assigned to the task, he devoted every single waking hour to it for a month. Living and breathing the Z1 was all he did, even telling his wife to forget she had a husband for the entirety of that March. Overtime? What’s that? 

Still, if you’re able to put your entire being into working on a single project, without having to worry about any other responsibilities—it’s kind of freeing. Tada later reflected that this was one of the (if not the most) rewarding experiences of his career because it was just him, the Z1, and his complete immersion in making the project work. 

tada

The Z1 was designed specifically to appeal to the American market, so a teardrop tank was a must. It also couldn’t look like anything else currently on the market—especially not the CB750. Previously, Kawasaki had never had a designer take a crack at styling engine parts—but that changed with the Z1. Tada insisted on the “DOHC” badge, to differentiate from the CB750’s single overhead cam. Engine design chief Ben Inamura thought it was stating the obvious, but Tada held firm. In design, as in engineering, details matter. 

Amazingly enough, Tada managed to complete the project by the March 31 deadline. He then presented it to all the Z1 project engineers at Kawasaki headquarters. They liked it, but the true test would be presenting it to Kawasaki’s American branch. On April 5, 1971, Tada and his newly-minted Z1 mock-up made the long flight to Los Angeles, California.  

The mock-up had been partly disassembled for shipment, so Tada reassembled it by hand in the motel room where the Kawasaki crew was staying. As Tada remembered, they refused to let anyone into the room—including the motel cleaning staff. Luckily, the plan was for the KMC representatives to come to the motel to see the bike, so neither Tada nor the nascent Z1 design had to move from that room.

2021 Road King Is a Fat, Dark, Vintage Looking 2017 Version of Itself

There are presently no less than 13 motorcycles available for the American market in Harley-Davidson’s Grand American Touring Range, from the Electra Glide to the CVO. However, for one reason or another, the Road King really stands out in this select crowd. AMERiders will give you a bit of information on the new 2021 Road King.

The Road King line was born in 1994, with the American company behind it trying to bring back on the two-wheeler some design cues of the 1960s, especially when it comes to the shape of the front end. Since then, not much has changed in terms of looks, and a 2021 Road King, for instance, described by Harley as a “stripped-down highway legend with classic chrome styling and modern touring performance,” sells from $19,499.

That’s probably a hell of a lot less than the total price of this thing here, a 2017 Road Glide so heavily modified that it looks to have been transported into our time from some dark Harley-Davidson past. Sadly, we don’t know the exact price of the monstrosity as its maker, Russian shop Box39, never tells, but that’s not stopping us from admiring the work.

The build was completed last year and, aside from the light-devouring black that wraps all around the body, it packs a host of other changes that make it significantly different than a stock Road King.

The wheels haven’t changed size from stock, but now come in a solid design, probably of Box39’s own making, and wrapped in Metzeler Marathon Ultra tires. We get an air ride suspension to control the ride’s distance from the ground, and custom, massive fenders of the wheels to give the build a very retro look.

The massive, dark appearance of the build is enhanced by an extended fuel tank, the huge headlamp fitted up front, and the custom seat waiting at the rear. The handlebar position has changed as well, and there is no longer a windscreen there to protect the rider from the elements.

2022 Indian Chief Shows off Customization With No Regrets Collaboration

Indian Motorcycle wants customers to know just how customizable its revamped 2022 Indian Chief really is, and AMERiders is going to explain it to you. Released in February 2021, the American V-twin brand only spared two months before it announced the 2022 Chief Custom Build-Off in April 2021. That contest runs parallel with Indian’s collaboration with London tattoo shop No Regrets Studio. By July 2021, Australian tattoo artist Mayonaize revealed his take on the big-bore cruiser

Now, Japan’s pre-eminent tattoo artist Shige just joined the fray with a design steeped in Japanese lore. In the mid-’90s, Shige worked as a motorcycle mechanic by day while moonlighting as a tattoo artist. His passion for motorcycles helps led him to the Indian X No Regrets collaboration and inspired his approach to design.

“I picked the ‘Oni demon with a storm of falling cherry blossoms’ design. My understanding of tattooing is different from what the majority thinks – who understand it mainly as decoration. The reason for the placement of an Oni-demon tattooed on the belly means you have Oni-demon in the center of the body and heart, this translates to the motorcycle fuel tank.”

“The Oni-demon stands for strong will and protection; Oni is a demon, but its meaning is not evil. It wards off bad luck and protects you from evil. Having Oni-demon tattooed on the belly shows one’s determination to live in this harsh world with a strong heart.”

For now, Indian presents Shige’s design with a digital rendering of the 2022 Indian Chief. With Mayonaize and Shige’s designs already revealed, Carlos Torress of the U.S. will unveil the contest’s final entry in the coming months. By spring 2022, Indian will lift the covers on the physical versions at a VIP event in London.

2022 Indian Chief

In addition to the design contest, Indian and No Regrets are offering riders the chance to win their dream tattoo. Exclusive to motorcyclists from Austria, Denmark, France, Finland, Germany, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the U.K., one lucky winner will get a two-day studio session (valued at €6000 [$7,007 USD]) compliments of No Regrets & Indian Motorcycle. To enter, contestants just need to register for an Indian test ride online.

Electric Kick Scooter Racing & EICMA Adopts New Logo and Slogan

Not only do we have the eSkootr Adrenaline-Pumping Electric Kick Scooter Racing Series for you this week but we also have information on EICMA Adopting a New Logo and Slogan Ahead Of the November 2021 Event for you. AMERiders has the information on both for you.

High speed e-scooters hit speeds of speeds of 60 mph.

Electric kick scooters have been around for several years now. Traversing the urban environments in several cities all over the world, electric kick scooters have proven themselves as handy and dependable, albeit sometimes controversial personal mobility devices. Having said all that, it is rather surprising that a professional racing series involving these electric scooters has yet to be established.

The dawn of electric power sports has ushered in tons of exciting racing series. Among these comes a new racing series that centers around electric kick scooters. However, these aren’t any ordinary kick scooters. You see, eSkooter, slated to launch sometime in 2022, is expected to become the first international championship series for electric scooters. If you thought that any old electric kick scooter would be suitable for the eSkootr race in the series, you would be dead wrong. As mentioned earlier, these are not your ordinary electric scooters, no, the scooters can reach speeds faster than 100 kilometers per hour.

Electric Kick Scooter

Certainly, piloting an electric kick scooter at these speeds could be a rather harrowing experience. As such, it really isn’t surprising that the racers in this series sport motorcycle-like racing suits. Specifically, the electric kick scooter to be used in this racing series will be the eSkootr S1X, which is equipped with an air dynamic body, 6.5-inch alloy wheels, and produces 12 kW of maximum power output. It weighs a rather hefty 35 kg and draws power from a 1.33 kWh battery pack which gives it an autonomy of just 8 to 10 minutes.

As such, we can expect the races in this series to be rather short, sprint-type events, as opposed to long-distance, multiple-lap races such as that in other electric power sports. On average, the eSkootr racing circuits will cover a distance of around one kilometer and will have around 30 participants in a grid-style race. It will certainly be very exciting to see all the thrills and spills this new, exhilarating two-wheeled racing series will bring to the table.

EICMA Adopts New Logo And Slogan

Electric Kick Scooter

EICMA, like so many things, was canceled in 2020. As of August 25, 2021, it’s currently on the calendar for November 23 through 28. It will take place in its usual venue, at Rho Fiera Milano in Italy. To usher in a new era of showcasing the best that the motorcycle industry has to offer, EICMA unveiled its new logo and slogan on August 24.  

The logo shows a simple red wheel and front fork combination from a motorcycle, seen from the left side in profile. The new slogan is “Esposizione Internazionale Delle Duo Ruote,” or “International Two-Wheeler Exposition” (sorry, MP3 and Niken GT, but you can’t sit with us). 

EICMA says it stuck with the color red on its new logo to symbolize its continuing passionate love of all things on two wheels. I mean, fair enough. The wheel also apparently symbolizes the world through which riders travel, and the forks represent the industry that makes it all possible, according to EICMA. It was designed by Lorenzo Marini, of Milan’s Yes Marini advertising agency.

The static logo looks quite nice, but the animated version appears to be even more powerful as you watch first the wheel and the fork slot into place. EICMA sees the fork almost appearing as a wing, to give added dimension to its new logo. However, we’d add that it also looks like a slightly tilted Power On symbol, of the kind we all see and interact with on countless electric and electronic devices every single day.  

Turn on your bike and let’s go for a ride. Leave all your troubles behind, because two is the optimal number of wheels for an extremely good day. What will EICMA 2021 bring? As more OEMs confirm attendance for the November event, it looks more promising all the time. Only a few more months until we find out.

Evel Knievel Museum leaving Topeka for Las Vegas: ‘Deal imminent’

In a move that seems quite a bit like adding two plus two and getting four, the Evel Knievel Museum appears to be on its way to Las Vegas as of August 2021. The museum is currently based in Topeka, Kansas, where it has been a popular tourist attraction since it opened in 2017. AMERiders gives you the information.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal first broke the news, which was quickly mostly confirmed by the Museum itself. Museum marketing director Amanda Beach characterized the announcement as “a bit premature,” but also added that a formal, official deal is “imminent.”  

According to Beach, both the Evel Knievel Museum and the Knievel family have actively been involved in exploring their options to find the best way to honor Knievel’s legacy. Given the man’s extensive history with Las Vegas, this math kind of seems like a no-brainer. 

Evel Knievel Museum

If the deal does happen, it’s worth noting that as of August 2021, there are no plans to move the museum to Las Vegas immediately. The process will likely take a couple of years to complete, with the current Museum’s staff overseeing the process.  

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Museum welcomed an estimated 40,000 people per year since it first opened. It’s unclear how the numbers would change after a move to Las Vegas, although reasonable expectations would see it fly much higher. 

Visit Topeka president Sean Dixon told the Topeka Capital-Journal that the announcement came as a surprise, and said that the museum’s reputation meant a lot as a tourism draw to the area. However, he also said it wasn’t the only reason that people visit, and added that Topeka has plenty more to offer visitors. 

If the deal goes through as currently planned, Las Vegas developer J Dapper will bring it to the Las Vegas Arts District, with an address at 1001 S. 1st Street. There are also plans for a restaurant to be located on the new museum campus. 

“This museum deserves to be in a tourism destination, and I don’t think anyone would question that Las Vegas makes the most sense for the Evel Knievel Museum to be there with Evel’s history in that city,” Beach said.

“There are more people involved in this decision than just us our team in Topeka. This has been a joint venture with the Knievel family from the beginning. The museum has received many awards, had great reviews and received a lot of national exposure. This led to the Knievel family exploring the possibility of having our team move the museum to Las Vegas where the attraction can realize its greatest potential. Having the museum in Topeka has been awesome for us, but it is not realizing its potential for the Knievel family. We are not selling out to anyone in Las Vegas. Our Topeka team will be installing and operating the museum in Las Vegas.”

2020 was an uncertain year. We’d gaze into the crystal ball and see only fog. This year is different. It shows a clear course for the future of 2021. So, we had Darren McKeag and Russell Murchie create two crystal ball-themed designs for the Sturgis Rally and the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. Only 150 people will be able to get in on this extremely limited run of prints, so if you’d like to memorialize your trip to the Sturgis Rally with one, you’d better nab it now before they’re all gone!

Events

The original Ride Wild (formerly Wild Gypsy Tour) event; the first-ever women’s-only motorcycle festival at the legendary Sturgis Buffalo Chip®.
