The Honda Civic has long been a major contender in the landscape of trusted affordable transportation and even a little fun for enthusiasts with trim levels like the Civic Si and Type R. For the 2022 model year, the Honda Civic gets a redesign where it looks to have literally grown up even more with a mature aesthetic that fits the part to reach wider demographics, not just the young seeking their first vehicle or “basic” transportation.

The long lineage of the Honda Civic, now marking 50 years and 11 generations, has been one that’s set tones and benchmarks for the automotive industry within the small car segments. If you’ve seen a new 2022 Honda Civic you probably didn’t know what you were looking at with a quick first glance, and that’s a good thing in most cases. Bringing a new design language, the 2022 Civic looks more refined, and its. From the newly styled sheet metal to the more accommodating interior, the new 2022 Civic returns with a hatchback and sedan design with no plans in sight for a coupe.

Powering the new 2022 Honda Civic is mostly a familiar return having the two engine choices of the base 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with 158 horsepower found in the LX and Sport trims. A 6-speed manual transmission also returns as a no-cost option on the Sport trim as does the option of the 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder with a 180-horsepower figure. The Honda Civic remains to be one of the few vehicles produced today that have managed to keep the love of the manual transmission alive. Way to go Honda! If you opt for the “automatic transmission” you’re going to make do with a CVT “Continuously Variable Transmission”. However, from what we have experienced in the past with the Honda Civic, the brand’s CVT is among the best in the business, and we don’t mind it near as much as CVTs in many other vehicles.

Going Once, Going Twice: The best bikes from the Bonhams February sale

bmw rs 500 bonhams february sale 2024 745x497 1 jpg

Ex-Hans-Otto Butenuth BMW RS 500 at the Bonhams February sale
The Bonhams February sale is about to wrap up, so we’re taking a break from our regular scheduled programming to pick our favorite motorcycles from the auction. From an Ariel Square Four and a 1989 Kawasaki ZX-10, to Hans-Otto Butenuth’s BMW 500 Rennsport [above], here are seven classic motorcycles that we’d love to park in the Bike EXIF garage.

1907 Quadrant at the Bonhams February auction
1907 Quadrant In the early 1880s, two blokes by the names of Walter and William Lloyd patented a pedal tricycle steering mechanism, which they (very confusingly) called the ‘Quadrant.’ Anyway, Quadrant went on to make bicycles, tricycles, and motorcycles, and, by 1901, had emerged as one of Britain’s earliest motorcycle manufacturers.

This 453 cc Quadrant was originally built in Coventry and was meticulously restored by a previous owner. It showcases its history through hand-written notes, technical drawings, old registrations, marque-related literature, and an SMCC Pioneer Certificate.

Road tested: TFX Suspension Xtreme adjustable rear shocks

tfx suspension review 745x497 1 jpg

TFX Suspension review
I got lucky when I bought my 2012-model Triumph Bonneville SE last year. A single-owner bike with less than 1,500 miles on the dial, it had spent most of its life trickle-charging in a garage. What’s more, the previous owner had thrown a handful of tasteful factory accessories at it (and a few that were less well-judged).

There was one key ingredient missing though; good suspension. Most modern classics roll out of the factory with suspension components that are adequate at best, but the older air-cooled Bonneville’s setup is downright poor. Small LED turn signals and a fancy sprocket cover might make your bike look prettier, but new shocks—like the fully adjustable TFX Suspension Xtreme units now gracing the tail end of my Triumph—will make it ride better.

TFX Suspension Xtreme rear shocks review

Based in The Netherlands, TFX Suspension is run by a small and passionate team, led by founders Hans-Dieter Fischer and Alex Meijs. The two of them formed TFX fourteen years ago when the suspension company that they were working for folded. Now they produce components on their terms, with the sort of hands-on approach that’s often missing from larger companies.

Their catalog includes various mono- and twin-shock items, suitable for a wide range of on- and off-road applications, plus a handful of front suspension upgrades. (We’ve seen their parts on custom bikes from Bottpower, Powerbrick, CNCPT Moto, and more.) They sent me a set of their Xtreme shocks to test out on my Triumph Bonneville; fully-adjustable units that retail for €1,399 [$1516].
