We've spotted a new rendering of the upcoming Honda Africa Twin, and so far we are inclined to say that this is one of the best we came across so far. After watching the photo for some time, we realized why we like this rendering: it's because of its resemblance to the old Africa and for seemingly being a more realistic interpretation of the previous generation's philosophy. This nifty rendering comes courtesy of Behance member Jakusa Design (thanks user Supra) and we can only hope Honda had the same vision, or at least a similar one for the new AT.

Now, truth be told, industry voices say that the newAfrica Twin will be a CRF-derived beast, yet it would somehow try to stand up against the BMW R1200GS. Aside the exceedingly difficult task of coming up with an R1200GS killer, most AT fans we talked to were in favor of a bike looking as close as possible to the old one.

With the v-twin engine dropped and replaced by a parallel twin mill, the last thing Honda could do to seduce the fans of the old Africana is styling. The present rendering shows a compact and muscular bike, with robust shapes and a very good riding stance. The position is upright, providing both excellent knee control and ground contact, while the high, ample bars are also a good choice for easier steering on rough ground.

The Lancia Stratos HF by Bertone is a car so ahead of its time that it almost seems like a Syd Mead illustration that came to life and launched itself off the page - right into the World Rally Championship.

The Stratos was powered by a 192bhp, 2418 cc DOHC Dino V6 engine with triple Weber carburettors, a 5-speed manual transmission, 4-wheel independent suspension with front coil springs and rear MacPherson struts, and 4-wheel ventilated disc brakes. The wrap-around windscreen offered an astonishingly wide field of view for both the driver and co-driver - an important feature for a car that was destined to spend most of its life going sideways at 80+mph.

The "HF" in the name stood for "High Fidelity" and the "Stradale" means that this is the street-legal version...

Crocker motorcycles are something else. The styling is amazing, while still having an air of functionality about them. The main problem you will find with these bikes is the rarity, which in turn boosts the price beyond the reach of mere mortals. Those lines though, that is the look you want, so how do you get it? Utopia Customs have come up with an answer, producing their own homage to the Crocker marque, using a 1979 Yamaha and their ingenuity to bring this speedway bike to life. Which in turn is something else in itself.

This pristine 1975 Norton Commando is the result of a restoration by the team over at Colorado Norton Works - almost certainly the world's foremost authority on resto-modding the classic British parallel twin.

The Commando you see here has had the original carburettor replaced with a far superior 34mm Mikuni unit, this significantly improves reliability in varied weather conditions and is a modification recommended by almost all in the Norton community.

The original ignition has been replaced with an after-market Tri Spark unit, Hagon Stainless shocks have been fitted along with Epco S/S mufflers and interestingly - a Honda wiring loom is being used to ensure bullet-proof reliability.

News: Ducati Scrambler latest picture
Leggi Tutto Commenti (0)

Here's the latest shot of Ducati's forthcoming Scrambler, leaked after the firm showed the new model to a small number of fans at World Ducati Week in Italy.

The Scrambler was unveiled at the Misano circuit last Friday in a room where no mobile phones were allowed. Like that was going to work.

Predictably, this shot has emerged, on the Ducati Corse unofficial Facebook page.

It's the second time the new model has been seen in yellow, harking back to classic Ducati Scramblers of the '70s, and also comes after spy shots showed it in red.
