As promised, we have a new exciting cruiser to talk about. The new Victory Judge has caught the country by storm as one of the premier muscle bikes. The Judge is a lighter and more versatile bike than Victory’s Hammer S and should have better handling. Below is a list of the Judge’s specs.
Check out Victory’s new video for the Judge.

Are you a Kawasaki fan? If so, here’s a treat for you. The new 2012 ER-6f has been given a complete makeover. Even though the images may not show it, the new ER-6f has received it’s biggest round of changes since it was released six years ago. We do not have details on it’s power, weight or price but Kawasaki claims the new model has increased engine performance and more torque. We do know the ER-6f is equipped with a tubular steel chasis, a “banana” shaped twin-tube swingarm, adjustable-height windscreen, higher performance engine and a new exhaust.

We all ride for different reasons. Some of us have a family history with bikes. Others just enjoy the thrill of the open road. Regardless of the reason, all riders experience something called escapism. Escapism, as defined by Barry Munsterteiger, the director of this video, is “The state of having wandering and imaginative thoughts in order to remove one’s self from reality.” This video captures the true essence of this experience.
Nicky Hayden is no stranger to MotoGP. Throughout his career he has earned 5 MotoGP pole positions along with achieving the fastest MotoGP lap six times. He has won three races, placed 2nd in six races and 3rd in 18 races. He gives the new track his stamp of approval.

Are you planning on honing your motorcycle tricks this weekend? Here’s some inspiration for you. It’s the Wheelie, Stoppie and Surfer done right by professional freestyle rider, Chris Pfeiffer.
BMW, with funding from the German Federal Ministry, has come up with a scooter that promises to provide the rider with greater efficiency of performance, higher range and better maneuverability. The BMW E-Scooter will come equipped with a ‘high-performance electric machine’ which will be placed behind the battery component. A secondary electric drive will achieve power transmission from the roller chain to the real wheel and a regenerative braking system could possibly give the scooter a 20 percent increase in range.
The E-Scooter comes with an external electronic system which features an interactive mechanism which displays and collects data relating to temperature and voltage of the battery cells. All these innovations and the scooter could be charged by a simple household socket so there is no requirement for exclusive charging stations. Check out the quick preview video of the BMW E-Scooter below.
When it comes to performing tricks on a motorcycle there are two things you must have: skill and guts. Here at Extrememoto, we highly recommend that you posses a higher level of skill than guts in order to achieve such tricks safely. Today we want to take you back to a childhood favorite, the Wheelie. This trick has been helping kids get their first playground dates for decades and we thought it would be a great idea to show you how it’s done, big boy-style. In this video, professional streetbike freestyle rider Chris Pfeiffer, takes you through the steps to achieving a proper Wheelie on a motorcycle. Though it is sure to impress all viewers, we highly recommend you do NOT try this at home. It’s much better to watch the video from the comfort of your couch than the hospital bed of the nearest emergency room. With that said, enjoy responsibly!
Here’s a stellar motor-creation by Director of Photography Adam Richards and Director Henrik Hansen. The nearly 3-minute documentary was one of five clips nominated for a 2011 Vimeo Award. In it we glimpse into the mind of Shinya Kimura (visit his website found here), as he makes it clear that motorcycles still make his heart skip a beat. All kidding aside, this video is a motorhead must-see. Enjoy!
