Issues

September/October 2020

Our main feature for our Sept/Oct issue is a review on the much-anticipated 2021 Yamaha Ténéré 700. Yamaha has done a bang-up job of delivering an economically-priced mid-size adventure bike to the North American market. Our travel features include a long awaited ride on the immaculate roads of Kentucky, and an article around the Finger Lakes in Upstate New York. Our Unobtainium section centres around a test ride on the Harley-Davidson VR1000 Roadster, of which only 50 were built, while a story of a 1951 Royal Enfield takes us through a bit of family history that spans two continents.

August 2020

Our August issue features a pair of supercharged bikes: Kawasaki’s Z H2 is powered by a supercharged 998 cc state-of-the-art four-cylinder powerhouse and the 1929 BMW R57 Kompressor 500 cc twin, which cleans up at vintage race festivals. As well, our own Emily Roberts ventured south to Georgia to get away from the snow; turns out she rode right back into winter. Misti Hurst tells us how she snagged a ride at a local Supermoto race in Victoria. And if you’ve ever thought about upgrading your motorcycle’s light system with LEDs, you really should read “See and Be Seen” before spending your hard-earned money.

July 2020

In our July issue we bring you a report from Alan Cathcart on the 2020 KTM 390 Adventure. Judging by his gushing words, this may be one of 2020’s most significant motorcycle releases.

Also in this issue are four travel articles, including a ride through the states of Rhode Island and Connecticut, an exciting ride from Ontario to New Brunswick, a last-minute detour to discover Ernest Hemingway’s old stomping grounds in Michigan and a timely article about exploring the roads in your own backyard. All of this plus our regular columns, Mojo Garage, product reviews and so much more.

June 2020

Our June issue features the BMW F900XR, which handles like a sport bike with an upright seating position. Also on deck is Yamaha’s brand-new MT-03, a bike created after the company stripped the YZF-R3 of its bodywork to fashion this nimble naked bike. Other features in this issue include many of the roads in the Appalachian Mountains that are named after serpents; an article on motorcycle designer genius John Britten – how his mind worked and his avant-garde motorcycles; and the gathering of like-minded dual-sport riders at the Fundy Adventure Rally.

May 2020

Our first feature article in our May issue is that of the 2020 Triumph Tiger 900. Costa
Mouzouris tested the GT and Rally models by putting them through their paces riding on
pavement, gravel and off-road. Also in this issue is a test of the all-new 2020 Suzuki V-
Strom 1050XA. David G. Williams takes us on a loosely planned ride in search of the
perfect Old Fashioned down the coasts of Oregon and California. Britain’s Norton
Motorcycles has closed its doors once again. Alan Cathcart reports on what happened to
the British motorcycle manufacturer.
This is just a snippet of what’s in our May 2020 issue.

April 2020

This month Jamie Elvidge brings us her take on both the 2020 BMW R1250R naked roadster and the R1250RS sport-touring bike. She gushes over these two bikes, which she says are similar machines with different personalities. Jamie had a tough time finding fault with either one, but she does have her favourite.

Also in this issue, Costa Mouzouris sent us his account of the 2020 Triumph Street Triple RS from the press launch at Cartagena, Spain, where he was able to test the bike on the road and on the track. Mouzouris was quite impressed with the 2020 version.

Shane Scott is no stranger to danger and loves speed, as is evident by his racing experiences in many forms of two-wheel competition. He’s even taken on the mountain at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. But attempting a land speed record was still lingering on his to-do list. Read about his challenges and experiences in adding another accomplishment to his resumé of speed.

Our travel feature this issue comes from Curtis and Karen Nickel. When medical complications threatened to quash their plans of a motorcycle trip they resorted to Plan B and, against doctor’s advice, proved that a good motorcycle ride really is the best medicine.

There is no question that Honda’s CX500 was a strange animal in comparison to the other machines that Honda has produced. That didn’t deter one builder from taking on the CX500 and making it his own. Our custom feature showcases Bob Klemenchuk’s exquisite creation.

All this and so much more in the April 2020 issue of Motorcycle Mojo magazine.
