The Laguna Seca pilgrimage
A trip for the ages.
30 July 2011
Rider: Rogelio Ramos
I know Ducati owners have a reputation of being a bunch of rich assholes who ride their over-priced Italian bikes to a coffee shop on Sundays so they can hang out with other Ducati owners who are also wearing Puma track suits and talk about how cool they all are, but let me introduce you to a guy who defies the stereotype. This story is about a motorcyclist with damn good taste who ditched the vin...

Video: 2012 MV Agusta F4 RR
With a new HiPo Ducati coming out this fall, the other Italian superbike makers are rushing to up power, drop weight and add electronics in order to compete. This official teaser video shows the 2012 MV Agusta F4 RR, a bike which the company has told dealers will make 198bhp thanks to a new short-stroke "Corsocorta" motor which ups power from 186bhp on the stock 2010 MV Agusta F4. The price for mo...

From MotoGP to the Indy Mile: Roland Sands' Desmo Tracker
Exclusive to Hell For Leather, this render and these photos show what the finished Roland Sands Design Desmo Tracker will look like. If you haven’t heard yet, Roland’s finally lost his marbles, building a flat track racer based on the limited-to-1,500-units, MotoGP-replica, 197bhp Ducati Desmosedici RR. With permission from his doctors, we asked Roland what the hell he was thinking. HFL: What...

Photos: MV Agusta F4 RR 312 1078 Edizione Finale
The all-new, 2010 MV Agusta F4 is faster, lighter, smoother, cheaper and just all-round a better motorcycle. But, it’s not the original. Considered by many the most beautiful bike ever made, Massimo Tamburini penned the original F4 way back in 1998. The bike you see here will be the last of that original F4 ever produced. The appropriately titled Edizione Finale is based on the 1078 RR 312. Th...

Photo: Brammo Empulse RR takes Thunderhill’s Cyclone
This sequence shows the company’s designer and test rider Brian Wismann riding the Brammo Empulse RR through Thunderhill’s Cyclone. Brammo is preparing for the 2011 TTXGP race season, which will see it compete against bikes like the Mission R and possibly the MotoCzysz E1pc as well as some as-yet-unseen hotness from an HFL contributor. This photo’s available in high-res, along with a bunch o...

Details: Brammo Empulse RR
HFL superfriend Sean Smith stuck his camera lens up inside the Brammo Empulse RR to grab these pictures at Laguna Seca last weekend. What they reveal is an electric race bike that's shockingly similar in configuration to the 2010 MotoCzysz E1pc. We're not suggesting that one rips off the other, instead it looks like two companies have independently come to similar conclusions about the best ...

Photos: Brammo Empulse RR
This is the Brammo Empulse RR that didn't compete at this weekend's FIM e-Power race at Laguna Seca. That's too bad, by the looks of things, it could have given Michael Czysz a run for his money. Brammo's still trying to figure out what specs it's OK to tell us, but clearly apparent is a liquid-cooled motor mounted to the standard Brammo Empulse's frame. With development of this race bike s...
