Cycle News Magazine 2020 Issue 21

Cycle News Staff | May 26, 2020

This week’s issue of Cycle News magazine includes our review of the 2020 Suzuki V-Strom 1050 XT. A sentimental favorite among commuter and adventure tourers, the popular V-Strom got a boost in power and a bit more smarts, thanks to an upgraded electronics package. Not only that, but it also got nice bright retro-inspired looks that turn heads where ever it goes. So, you just bought a new Honda CRF450L dual-sport. Now what? We have some cool aftermarket bolt-on ideas for you that you might like when it comes to improving the L’s dual-sport versatility. You’ve heard of the SmartCarb, right? If not, it’s a carburetor for your two-stroke that thinks it’s fuel injection. We bolted one up to a two-stroke Beta 300 RR to see just how smart it really is. We also chatted with three-time world champion Wayne Rainey and re-visited some of his most memorable moments. Racing is also slowly ramping up and we have the latest results and news, including the passing of a legend, motorcycle tuner and fabricator Dave Miller. 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 21 here.
