|June 20, 2006 07:47 - Motorcycle Daily reviews the Avon Viper Sport Motorcycle Tire
Sportbike tires from Avon have been almost absent from the mindset of the U.S.
sportbike tire buyer's range of choices; I think if you asked most motorcycle
riders, the company's image would be more with sport touring and touring
This reaction is to be expected, when you consider successful
foray Avonmotorcycle tires had;in the world of motorcycle competition
was 1963 a bit before my time, snd most other ridersI suspect! You can read more
about Avon motorcycle tires on my web pages, but basically Avon has
been churning out car tires since 1885, and motorcycle tires since
1911. In 1997, Avon was acquired by Cooper Tire & Rubber, which gave Avon
access to new, high tech design and development facilities. In 2000, Avon
brought out the Azaro series, a radial tire meant to combine high grip and low
wear characteristics, but it never quite captured the imagination of U.S.
sportbike riders. Will things change with the brand new Viper Sport? Check out this excellent review by Willy

June 24, 2006 07:50 - Big displacement Honda in the pipeline?
There is a rumour in the motorcycle industry that the guys at honda have finally dcided to do something about their big bike range. When Honda introduced the VTX1800 several years ago, it was the biggest bike around. at the time, a v-twin motorcycle this size in production at such a large volume was unheard of.
Since the Kawasaki Vulcan 2000, and then the Triumph Rocket III (displacing roughly 2,300cc) has changed the playing field, cruiser enthusiasts no longer think of 1800cc cruisersas "big"
Is Honda planning to do more than just catch up and introduce an even larger cruiser? The rumor is that this could happen . Honda supposedly has a range of new models ready for autumn launch. If there is such a bike being developed, and if it is intended as a 2007 model, we may see something as early as this September. Keep watching this space...
