The first three episodes of “On Two Wheels” will air on beIN Sports at 7:30 p.m. eastern standard time on December 6, December 13 and December 20.
What began as a monthly web show covering everything from scooters to superbikes, “On Two Wheels” has grown to a syndicated series on platforms including MSN, Yahoo!, AOL, RiderTV and YouTube, where the show has more than 125,000 subscribers. Motorcyclist produced 12 episodes of “On Two Wheels” in 2016, which will soon be available in millions of homes via the cable network beIN Sports. Co-hosted by two of the industry’s most enthusiastic riders, Motorcyclist magazine’s Ari Henning and Zack Courts, “On Two Wheels” aims to entertain, inform and inspire riders from all corners of motorcycling. In the first episode, host Greg White (Fox/SPEED) explores Henning and Courts’ unique friendship and working relationship, before focusing on a shootout comparison between a scooter, automatic motorcycle, and conventional motorcycle.
“I really can’t imagine a better partner for ‘On Two Wheels’ than BeIN Sports,” said Zack Courts, senior editor at Motorcyclist and on-air talent of the new TV program. “I think if people tune in and tell their friends, we’ll have more awareness and excitement around motorcycles in the near future. That’s what ‘On Two Wheels’ is all about.”
