2021 Aprilia Tuono 660
When word got out about the RS 660, we were all pretty gosh darn excited. We rode the RS last year and, despite not being able to firmly place it in a particular motorcycle genre, were pretty impressed with its peachy little engine, the way it handled and its space-age tech. That said, the...
2021 Ducati Monster

When you’ve sold as many Monsters as Ducati have – more than 350,000 – you know you’re onto a winner. But whilst the Monster 1200 always seemed to be exactly what it said on the tin (a Monster), its smaller sibling, the Monster 900 never seemed quite as monstrous as I’d have liked….

2021 BMW S 1000 R

BMW has finally given the S 1000 R a long-overdue update; it’s 5.1kg lighter, it’s got a new chassis and yes, before you ask, it does include the newer spec S 1000 RR based engine… sort of. Ok, it’s not in the same 200bhp+ state of tune and you don’t get shifting cams, but essentially, it’s…

When... Read more
Riding BvG’s KTM 1290 Super Duke R
As far as KTM 1290 Super Duke R reviews go, this is slightly special. I grabbed the keys to his lordship’s steed and the look on his faultlessly sexy, chiselled face was one of ‘don’t fucking crash it’. You’ve heard of the saying, ‘win it or bin it’. Well,... Read more
James Hillier: “riding the TT with dodgy brakes is quite scary”
The vast majority of TT racers are all well-liked, approachable characters and lack that rockstar mentality of some of the, erm, rockstars, and James Hillier is one of the most down to earth, straight-talking riders in any paddock. We do love a good natter with him… The Ringwood rider... Read more
