Modern-classic, neo-retro or simply put, retro motorcycles are essentially modern motorbikes that emulate the design lines of a by-gone era – mostly, of the 50s, 60s and 70s era.
Neo-retro motorcycles afford the advantage of a classically styled motorcycle, with modern performance and technology. And more pertinently, without the complications of classic/vintage motorcycle ownership.
The development of the neo-retro motorcycle segment has undoubtedly been fueled by the rise of new wave custom bike builders and 21st-century café racer culture.
Once dubbed a fad by internet moto forum warriors, most major manufacturers now have a range of retro motorcycle models. The appetite for these bikes shows no sign of abating.
And here you’ll find a collection of articles, images, videos and galleries, uncovering neo-retro or modern classic motorcycles. And that’s from all the major manufacturers: Triumph, Kawasaki, BMW Motorrad, Indian Motorcycle, Honda, Ducati, Harley-Davidson, Royal Enfield, Husqvarna Motorcycles, Norton Motorcycles, Suzuki, Yamaha, Moto Guzzi, Moto Morini and more.
