    Report: Japanese motorcycles moving into forced induction
    1386097200

    While turbocharging and supercharging may be nothing new in the automotive industry, motorcycle engines are almost always naturally aspirated (we're not forgetting about the old school Kawi GPZs nor the Yamaha XJs, awesome as they were, they never really caught on). But even that's beginning to ...

    Tokyo: Honda speeds down memory lane with its first F1 car
    1385506800

    Though most Formula One teams are based in the UK, they hail from places all around the world. There are teams from Russia, India and Malaysia, but in the 1960s, the idea of an F1 team coming from as far away as Japan was unthinkable in what was a predominantly European racing series. That's jus...

    1385218800

    Honda has had a longer and more tumultuous relationship with Formula One than just about any other automaker.

    Tokyo: We obsessively covered the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show
    1385166600

    To reiterate what Editor-in-Chief Neff said in our LA Auto Show wrap-up from earlier today, let's never do this whole two-major-shows-in-one-week thing ever again. Oh sure, we handled it, doing our whole obsessively kicking butt thing on a global scale. But here we are, Friday evening, and we're...

    1385143200

    Japan may be best known, at least among motorcycle enthusiasts, for its sport bikes. But as we found at the Tokyo Motor Show this year, Japanese motorcycle manufacturers are capable of producing all kinds of motorbikes. And to our delight, that includes cafe racers.

    Mazda has received a tremendous amount of public and industry praise in the last few years, following up the successful introduction of its Skyactiv technology (powertrain and otherwise), with strong products like CX-5, Mazda6 and most recently, the Mazda3.

    Tokyo: Toyota Prius C done up four ways as JDM Aqua concepts
    1385058600

    What we know as the Toyota Prius C here in North America goes by Toyota Aqua in Japan. And, just as it did in 2011, the automaker has taken advantage of its home Tokyo Motor Show to show off a few variations of products that the Aqua could spawn. The most immediately appealing to our eyes is ...

    Tokyo: Lexus LF-NX gets turbocharged second act [w/video]
    1385053140

    Don't let its supremely polarizing appearance fool you, this is not the Lexus LF-NX Concept that you (probably) had a strong reaction to when it debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The German version of the concept car featured a variant of the Lexus Hybrid Drive system, while this LF-NX Turbo,...

    Tokyo: Nissan BladeGlider Concept shows its inner DeltaWing
    1385051400

    Just like the DeltaWing and ZEOD RC racecars, it takes seeing the Nissan BladeGlider concept live to get a true appreciation for its design. But that doesn't mean it's any less weird. The wedge-shaped, three-seat concept car hit the stage today at the Tokyo Motor Show, and Nissan says the car is...
