6Jaguar F Type V6 S vs Triumph Street Triple R in open-air track attack

Typically, these track battle videos pair up car against car or, in more disparate circumstances, car versus crossover, as we saw the other day. While the outcome of that battle was quite predictable, what'll happen when an equally fetching (and fast) four-wheeler is put up against one of the icons of the two-wheeled world? Evo just had to find out.

5Triumph takes us on an emotional journey over the salt

Every once in a while, Mother Nature has a rather tenuous relationship with her children. Such a scenario plays out each and every year as mankind clings to one of the last vestiges of open space left on our planet, the Bonneville Salt Flats, to which hundreds of men and women each year flock to take out their frustrations with the pace of life by attempting to outdo and one-up the accomplishments of those who dared make a similar attempt in years prior. It's a vicious cycle, and one that depend

4Stolen Motorcycle Returned To Owner 46 Years Later

Customs agents caught the bike on its way to Japan

A Nebraska man couldn't believe his luck when police told him his motorcycle –- 46 years after it had been stolen.

AddHot Rod Conspiracy's Castrol Rocket is a bullet-shaped, Triumph-powered land-speed racer

Quick, what is a car that's actually a motorcycle that can go 400 miles per hour and has 1,000 horsepower? The answer is this - the Castrol Rocket, from Hot Rod Conspiracy, Triumph and others. The bullet-shaped, carbon-fiber shell hides a motorcycle that will attempt to be the first two-wheeled vehicle to crack the 400-mph barrier and beat a record set in 2010.

10Dutch rally duo die in WRC support event [w/video]

Tragedy stuck this weekend at the site of the ADAC Rallye Deutschland when a driver and co-driver team from the Netherlands were killed in a crash on Saturday. The incident occurred not in the headline World Rally Championship event, but in a classic support rally.

12Vilner turns Triumph Speed Triple into Bulldog [w/video]

Vilner has pulled back the curtain on its newest creation: the Bulldog. A modified Triumph Speed Triple, the Bulldog features a number of aesthetic tweaks to set it apart from its more staid siblings. A new single headlamp now rides in place of the factory bug-eyed dual-lamp unit, and designers swapped out the stock wheels for a pair of flashy OZ Racing pieces. The stock pipes were also ditched in favor of the blacked-out examples you see above. With custom leather work both on the saddle and al

30Stop-motion engine rebuild makes it look too easy

The Triumph Spitfire is an interesting piece of engineering. There's plenty to love about the pint-sized convertible. It weighs so little, an enraged internet writer can pick it up enough to scoot it sideways in the garage with his bare hands. Early examples were drop dead gorgeous and foolishly simple to work on, and parts are perfectly easy to find. But there are drawbacks, though. For one, the machines are about as safe as trying to tie your shoe laces with a rusty blender, and reliability is

69BMW planning to revive Triumph?

BMW may be a German automaker, but it is no stranger to the allure of British motoring. Several years before buying Rolls-Royce, the Anglophiles in Munich bought the entire Rover Group – a collection of British marques of which BMW kept some and eventually sold others. MG it sold to the Chinese, Land Rover was eventually bought by Indian automaker Tata, but it famously relaunched the Mini brand, and along with it, kept the rights to Riley and Triumph, two dormant brands it did not sell off

27Triumph Bonneville Speed Twin Concept is what two-wheel dreams are made of

We don't envy the designers who pen bikes for the likes of Triumph or Harley-Davidson. Machines like the Bonneville and Sportster are inherently popular for their nostalgic looks, and die-hard fans are the first to cry foul when the bikes wander too far from the original recipe. As the Triumph Bonneville Speed Twin Concept elegantly illustrates, that's a crying shame. As the brainchild of English designers Roy Norton and Tom Kasher, the Speed Twin is a modern take on the classic Bonneville. The

3Bonhams Las Vegas Motorcycle Sale sees big numbers for vintage bikes

Bonhams wrapped up an impressive motorcycle auction in Las Vegas, and some very pricey metal rolled across the block. While seriously expensive bikes like the 1955 Vincent Black Prince pictured above and a 1915 Harley-Davidson 11-F Twin failed to bring home enough cash to find new owners, the 1953 Vincent Black Shadow to the right brought home well north of its early bid estimates. A new owner laid down a hefty $122,500 for the pleasure of ownership. Likewise, one very sparse-looking 1907 Indian

25Motorcycle vs. Car Drift Battle 2 debuts, someone called the cops

We all know sideways is slow. Kicking the tail out and sending the rear tires blazing may take a heaping helping of skill, but it won't win you any races. That doesn't make it any less awesome, however.

95Fonzie's Triumph motorcycle up for auction

Classic television fanatics and motorcycle aficionados alike can rejoice in the news that the Triumph Trophy TR5 ridden by one Arthur Fonzarelli in "Happy Days" has been found lurking in a motorcycle shop. The bike effectively vanished after the sitcom wrapped up in 1984, leaving collectors to assume that the machine met an unpleasant end at a scrap yard. The Fonz's motorcycle was originally owned by stuntman Bud Ekins, who kept the Triumph after filming shut down. You may remember Elkins as the

6Triumphant Debut: Patent office outs Triumph Tiger

The name Tiger has a long and illustrious history within the Triumph motorcycle hierarchy. Sure, it may not be quite as synonymous with British life on two wheels as the iconic Bonneville, but the Tiger moniker is still a classic that's been used on and off since the early 1940s. It's employed today as an all-roads street bike powered by a 1050cc triple-cylinder powerplant.
