The 2019 Suzuka 8 Hours race will be remembered for the fact that it ended in confusion. A surprise, red-flag ending put the outcome in question, and the final result was eventually amended giving the race win to Kawasaki Racing Team's Jonathan Rea, Leon Haslam, and Toprak Razgatlioğlu.

Here's what happened. In the final laps of the race, KRT was leading by a decent margin over Yamaha Factory Racing's Alex Lowes, Katsuyuki Nakasuga, and Michael van der Mark. Then, Suzuki Endurance Racing Team experienced a disastrous engine failure that left oil all over the track. It mixed with the small amounts of rain coming down and caught Rea off guard, sending the Ninja ZX-10RR to the ground. Rea had just five minutes to get the bike back to the pits according to EWC rules, but was unable to do so, and in provisional results KRT was listed as a non-finisher.

However, the race was red-flagged and ended, so Kawasaki had an argument the final results should be reverted back to the lap prior to the red flag. The FIM agreed, giving KRT the win.

The final season standings have Team SRC Kawasaki as champions of the 2019 Endurance World Championship.

The Deadly Sins MC is a support motorcycle club for the Vagos MC, which is an Outlaw Motorcycle Gang that commonly engages in felonious activities, the report states.

Vagos MC support clubs “commonly engage in buying and selling drugs and firearms and they provide a portion of the revenue from these sales to the Vagos MC.”

Late Thursday evening, upon arrival, deputies made contact with Sanchez and his child. Deputies took Sanchez into custody for felony domestic battery.

Just before 2 a.m. on Friday, deputies were granted a search warra

It had to happen. The 116-year-old brand synonymous with thumping V-twins was bound to dip its toe into electrification, and the long-awaited 2020 Harley-Davidson LiveWire is an inevitability sure to leave the traditionalists perplexed and the futurists intrigued.

LiveWire represents a startling shift for those raised on the potato-potato thump. But in many ways this $29,799 EV is a rolling embodiment of what happens when Milwaukee traditionalists not only acknowledge the march of progress, but embrace it wholeheartedly. First and foremost, LiveWire looks like no other hog before it—a good thing, considering this is a fresh-slate opportunity if ever there was one. Rather than nostalgically hat-tipping the past or visually rehashing the V-twin glory days, the new EV offers an entirely fresh take on two-wheeled transportation. Sure, there's an obligatory false tank and a familiar bikini fairing, but the finned 15.5 kWh lithium-ion battery evokes an appropriately monolithic, brick-like form that's framed by a cast-aluminum chassis.

Stealing glances from the mostly black-anodized structure is an underslung permanent-magnet electric motor that’s shrouded in a cast-aluminum shell. Harley isn’t nicknamed The Motor Company for no reason: The powerplant is showcased with a metallic case that visually pops, in spite of its out-of-the-way placement. Situated down low for advantageous weight distribution, the motor produces 105 hp and 86 pound-feet of torque, enough to propel the 549-pound bike to 60 mph in a claimed three seconds flat.
