Cycle News Magazine 2020 Issue 18

Cycle News Staff | May 4, 2020

This week’s issue of Cycle News magazine features a remembrance of three-time AMA National Motocross Champion Marty Smith who passed away at the age of 63. Smith represented everything motocross: the clean, the dirty, the rugged, the gentle, the pretty, and the ugly (well, maybe not the ugly) side of MX racing. And he helped put the sport of motocross on the map when it was first gaining traction in America in the mid-’70s. Our thoughts go out to Smith’s family and friends. You will also find in this issue our comparison test of the Husqvarna FE 350 and FE 501 off-road bikes. Is bigger really better, or is smaller sweeter? Earlier in the year, we sampled Yamaha’s new YZF-R1M on the track, now we get the chance to live with it for a while and take it to the streets. You will find all this and a lot more motorcycle events, news, and commentary in this week’s issue. Open Cycle News Magazine 2020 Issue 18 here.
