In the middle of last year Honda unveiled the SCL500, a production version of the CL500 prototype showcased during the 2022 EICMA show in Milan. Considering that news is still fairly recent, it comes as no surprise that the SCL500 gets a very light touch in the latest news of Honda’s new motorcycle models for 2024, with only a Matte Black Metallic color added to the list of options riders can consider. The bike remains $6,799 off the showroom floor and the new color scheme will be available starting this April.

Editor’s note: We test rode this vehicle during the 2023 Honda SCL500 Review With Riding Videos. Check out this editorial for in-depth information on this model.

To recap the machine a bit, the SCL makes use of Honda’s popular 471cc parallel twin, featured in streetbikes like the Rebel 500, CB500F, and CBR500R. It sports a 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheel configuration, high-set dual exhaust pipes, a long flat seat, and a minimalist aesthetic that all lend to the scrambler appeal of the machine.

Mechanically, it’s a straight-forward bike, as you might expect from a machine that will undoubtedly have strong new-rider appeal. ABS is standard as is a slip and assist clutch to help smooth out downshifts and lighten clutch pull. An LCD instrument panel is simple but effective, and spring-preload adjustment at the rear shocks adds a nice opportunity to customize the feel of the bike on road. There are no pesky electronic rider aids to fuss with at this stage of the game.

With the addition of the new color, riders will now be able to select between the aforementioned black and the returning Candy Orange or Matte Laurel Green Metallic.

Beach Boy: A surf-ready Yamaha WR155R scrambler from Thailand

Yamaha WR155R scrambler by Dream Fast Co.
A surfboard rack on a motorcycle might seem like a gimmick to some, but if you live in Bali and love surfing, it’s a downright necessity. The Indonesian island is peppered with surf spots—and a small bike with a rack is the best way to get to them. It doesn’t hurt if that motorcycle looks as good as this Yamaha WR155R scrambler.

The bike was built by Dream Fast Co. for Tiw, the founder of the Laem Yah Rayong Surf Club. Both parties are based in Thailand, but the influence came directly from Bali’s motorcycle and surf culture. Tiw has Balinese friends who use vintage enduro bikes to find hard-to-reach surf spots, and wanted to capture that vibe in his Yamaha WR155R.

Dream Fast Co.’s mandate was to take the modern and reliable WR155R and inject it with a big dose of classic Yamaha dirt bike style. It sounds simple enough on paper, but in reality, it meant wading through piles of plastic to shed the WR155R’s contemporary aesthetic.

Once the Yamaha was denuded of its plastics, the Dream Fast Co. crew set about reworking its lines. The subframe was hacked off, and a new one was fabricated, this time with a kicked-up loop at the back. A new seat sits up top; it’s designed for one, but there is a smidge of space out back if you and your passenger want to get extremely cozy.

1967 FORD BRONCO CUSTOM SUV: Selling with No Reserve at the 2024 Scottsdale Fall Auction

This custom 1967 Ford Bronco underwent a full, frame-off restoration in 2020 that was completed in 2022. The frame and all components have been powder-coated in black. The body parts were media-blasted and coated top and bottom in LizardSkin for protection. The powerplant is a 351W with aluminum heads, roller rockers, mild roller cam, 10.25:1 compression and .40-over pistons. An Edelbrock Pro-Flow 4 fuel-injection system controls and monitors the engine components. It also features a CVF serpentine pulley system, K&N filters and an aluminum radiator.

The engine is backed by a C4 automatic transmission built to handle 400hp and includes Kevlar bands, Redline clutches, a 2,000-rpm stall converter and Dana 20T transfer case with twin-stick conversion. Power goes to a Ford 9-inch rear end with a Dana 30 front differential, WARN locking hubs and 3.50-ratio gears. It also features power steering and brakes (front disc and rear drum), new drive lines, a ceramic-coated exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers, complete Painless wiring, a chrome tilt wheel, 2.5-inch suspension lift with 2-inch body lift, stainless-steel brake lines, six Bronco oil shocks with single steering stabilizer and a BorgWarner steering box with all billet components.

This SUV was finished in a new Bronco Area 51 Blue with the original Bronco Wimbledon White hardtop, roll cage, dash, grille and accessories, and rides on color-matched Ford steel wheels wrapped in Toyo Mud Country tires. The cabin includes high-back bucket seats with a console, a rear seat that folds up, shoulder seat belts and a Vintage Air system for heating and cooling. It also features a Kenwood head unit with back-up camera, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and charging port, and sound going through two 6×9-inch and two 6.5-inch KICKER speakers paired with a 10-inch Fosgate subwoofer.
