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...
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….
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…
We spent the hottest day of the year (so far) spanking an immaculate Ducati 1199 Panigale round Donington Park, testing a few bolt-on gizmos and sobbing over the reality that GPS conveys. But more on that later… Datalogging cameras, or video loggers, are nothing new but still remain rich... Read more
We think so. After chatting to various sources (some reputable, some more HP sauce-like) and race teams in recent months, it’s pretty much a dead-cert we’ll see an all-new Suzuki GSX-R1000 in 2016 – more than likely at the Tokyo/EICMA shows later this year – and some even claim... Read more
We’ve been lording it right up at the Catalan GP in Barcelona over the weekend. There were plenty of olive-tanned, Spanish senoritas joining us to witness some epic on-track action and I got to meet some bloke called Valentino Rossi but, primarily, we were present for the launch of... Read more
From 125cc learner bikes to 125mph-in-second-gear steeds, the latest edition of our 44Tea chat reviews features the beauty and the beast: Ducati’s 1299 Panigale versus the all-new Yamaha R1. You’ve probably already heard how fantastical they are on the track, chasing tenths against the stopwatch? Well, in this video... Read more
Having spent the weekend at the Catalan MotoGP in Barcelona, I picked up on a new craze that’s currently sweeping the globe: randomers strolling into hospitality units without a care in the world, hoping for some free sustenance/beer or a chance to hang with the GP bigwigs. To many,... Read more
Honda has just presented the final version of the RC213V-S at the Spanish GP in Catalunya. After revealing a slightly bodged-up concept at the Milan show in 2014, the glossy, completed road-legal model will go on sale very soon and provide MotoGP for the masses – at a cost... Read more
Yesterday, it emerged that the rumour was in fact true: James Hillier does need a wheelbarrow to transport his unfeasibly large testicles around with him. Not only is the Ringwood nipper having a bloody good 2015 Isle of Man TT, he got to spank the 326nhp Kawasaki Ninja H2R... Read more
For a class so current and as prevalent as any, the A2 ‘sportsbike’ category has been bereft of some major players until recent times. First there was Kawasaki, shortly before Honda joined the fray. Years later, KTM unleashed the RC390 and showed everyone else how to build a budget... Read more
We get some weird and wacky requests here at 44Teeth: everything from entertaining, informative content ideas to cock-shots and ladies wanting to make sweet love to Baron’s voice. Who can blame these vixens? When a certain request is acknowledged more than once, it’s definitely worth pursuing. There was an... Read more
Power is nothing without control, so says the old Pirelli slogan. Power is also immaterial if you can’t stop the bastard. Braking is an overlooked aspect when it comes to modifying and upgrading, with many choosing to spend big bucks on hunting horsepower, snazzy suspension or, even worse, anodised... Read more
