We recently had the opportunity to experience the new 2021 Ford Bronco in all its Sasquatch off-roading package’s glory. We enjoyed the 2.7-liter turbocharged V6 engine and the Bronco’s nearly unmatched cohesiveness that we thought put it slightly over the top of the current Jeep Wrangler. Not to mention, the Bronco was the more agreeable and compliant vehicle to drive on road. To elevate things and compete with the Jeep Wrangler 392, Ford is confirmed to be bringing us the 2023 Bronco Raptor, a performance-injected beast that’s slated to take many traits from the F-150 Raptor.

The 2023 Ford Bronco Raptor will embody extreme characteristics and take pages that the F-150 Raptor has inked into the world of hardcore performance off-roading vehicles. What we also know is the Bronco Raptor will ride higher than the current Sasquatch-equipped Bronco, feature advanced live-wire adaptive dampers, beefed-up axles, 37-inch all-terrain tires, and best of all – the 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 from the new F-150 Raptor with 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque paired up with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

We suspect that the new Bronco Raptor will only be available in hardtop four-door configuration considering it will tout a wider track than the current Bronco along with wider finders to encase those larger wheels and tires. Moreover, the marker lights that we see on testing photos of the Bronco Raptor are an indication of the vehicle being at least 80-inches wide, which is the limit for requiring such lights.

As for pricing, we expect the Bronco Raptor to be just above the First Edition trim’s starting price of $62,605, possibly around the F-150’s starting price of about $65,000. We could see the new Ford Bronco Raptor in the flesh ready to claw pavement and dirt surfaces in 2022.

2023 Honda SCL500 Review With Riding Videos

Published

on

4IJC46VHEFD4LNHXQCHOJAKVJA 2

We take a spin on American Honda’s new-for-2023 SCL500 scrambler.

The SCL500 wears fork gaiter boots that give a scrambler aesthetic.

The 471cc parallel twin is smooth and easy to command. It pumps out nearly 40 horsepower at the rear tire.

Despite its engine size (and price) the SCL500 is a real, full-size motorcycle that will fit a range of riders both big and small.

The styling certainly isn’t our favorite but we value the upswept muffler and ribbed seat.

In typical Honda fashion, the exhaust note is muted and does a great job of not attracting unwanted attention.

The SCL500 is an easy-riding bike that offers above-average handling capability on curvy tarmac.

The cockpit of the SCL500 is cozy and accommodating for large and small riders alike.

Twin shocks with over 5 inches of suspension travel and a long wheelbase afford a cozy ride over bumpy road surfaces.

Instrumentation is simple and effective. It can be difficult to read in direct sunlight however.

Riders seeking a quality, full-size scrambler-type motorcycle (for light off-roading) will value the 2023 SCL500.

In typical Honda fashion, the saddle is comfy and there is room for a passenger.

It isn’t necessarily a “looker” but if value, quality, and ease of use are on your list of “wants” the SCL500 delivers.

New for the 2023 model year is American Honda’s 2023 SCL500. This is a new scrambler-style streetbike. This new motorcycle is based on the underpinnings of its ultrapopular Rebel 500 cruiser and is priced at $6,799 so it represents good value in the class versus bikes similar to Royal Enfield’s Scram 411.

The SCL500 is powered by Honda’s tried-and-true 471cc parallel-twin engine. It features an eight-valve cylinder head, dual overhead cam, water-cooling, and fuel injection. This nets around 43 ponies and 30 lb.-ft. torque at the business and at the Dunlop Trailmax 17-inch tire.

1979 Ducati Mike Hailwood Replica
1979 Ducati 864 cc Mike Hailwood Replica Mike Hailwood is without a doubt one of the most talented and grittiest riders in the history of motorcycle road racing.
