Slow news day? Absolutely!

This new system allows the rider to keep their hands free for other activities like giving thumbs up, pointing randomly, clawing at the air, or just maxin’ and relaxin’.

We can’t wait to get this feature on our Sportsters!

Video: Ari & Zack’s review of the Husqvarna Vitpilen 701 is great because they actually care!

Published

on

Ari & Zack from Motorcyclist Magazine have produced what is the best review of the new Husqvarna Vitpilen 701 so far.

To say that we have been excited about the new Husqvarna Svartpilen and Vitpilen motorcycles is a bit of an understatement. And now, they’re finally here, in dealers and their saddles have been well and truly worn-down by visiting journalists all testing out the new machines and given us their verdicts.

In fact – here’s ours, courtesy of the lovely people at the esteemed custom motorcycling publication Bike Exif.

Ride Review: The Husqvarna Vitpilen 701 hits the bullseye!

However, not all reviews have been equal and despite trawling the Internet on a daily basis, solid video reviews from the press have been hard to find – until now.

As to why this video from Ari Henning and Zack Courts by Motorcyclist Magazine is our favourite? Well, production values count for a lot. As does the fact that somebody has actually bothered to spend some time planning the shoot and has also spent some money on recording equipment…

But mainly it’s down to the fact that these two are enjoyable to watch, come across as fantastically knowledgeable and actually look as if they want to share their newly found leanings with us – their audience.

All we seem to get here in the UK are people rattling off numbers and shouting the names of their publications as often as possible. This ladies and gentlemen, is how we reckon video reviews should really be done. Well done Motorcyclist chaps… The publishing world may be a tricky climate right now, but the attention to detail here on your videos is much appreciated.

Plus, they address the common concerns with the machine, discuss the whole ‘it’s for hipsters’ nonsense and still manage to pull off a few wheelies at the same time!

Aprilia RSV4 on track day passed by Rossi?

Does neon-yellow and a leg dangle automatically mean Valentino?

This came across our Youtube feed the other day. Apparently, this gentleman was riding his 2017 Aprilia RSV4 RF on the Magny-Cours GP track in France, where – as you can see by the video – he was getting on pretty well – touching onto 240kph.

That is, until he gets passed by someone going a whole lot faster.

The Youtuber states that it was the one and only Valentino Rossi that passed him. With the dayglo yellow and blue track suit and signature leg dangle, I can certainly see why you’d think that. But could it really be the Doctor himself? Or is this a case of someone saving face down the pub after the event?

We’ll let you decide…
