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…

Ducati Hypermotard 939 Review
It’s always nice to walk away from a press launch without speeding fines or jail visits, particularly mischievous motorcycles that entice hooliganism with minimal provocation, very like the Hypermotard. Although niche in many eyes, Ducati’s fun-packed stunter has always been a personal favourite since model’s inception: that original air-cooled... Read more
Yamaha confirm MT-10 at £9,999
An R1-engined supernaked for under £10k? What the bloody hell is going on? Yamaha has just released final spec’ of its all-new MT-10 and confirmed the price will be a rather tempting £9,999, which marmalises future rivals’ bang for buck ratios. Yamaha claim 160bhp, so expect mid-140s at the... Read more
Video: James Hillier’s Bournemouth Kawasaki ZX-6R
You’d be surprised at the amount of additional work needed to ensure a bike – normally adequate for short circuit duties – is suitable enough to tackle a fortnight of Isle of Man TT spankings. We headed down to Bournemouth Kawasaki to inspect James Hillier’s fleet of TT racers,... Read more
2016 Honda MSX125
2016 looks as though it’s a year commanded by cosmetics and shrewd mechanical tweaks for Honda. Africa Twin aside, the Big H’s focus has clearly been on budget middleweights and A2 derivatives (bikes that sell and make money), with a medley of aesthetical updates bossing the MY16 headlines.    ...

Lougher to race Suter MMX500 at Isle of Man TT
As if 44Teeth ‘working’, possibly the first ever 133mph lap, and the onslaught of other reasons weren’t enough to attend the 2016 Isle of Man TT, here’s another: Suter Racing has announced that Ian Lougher will pilot the MMX500 two-stroke schlag in the RST Superbike and PokerStars Senior races,...

44T + Isle of Man TT
44Teeth will be live and direct from the 2016 Isle of Man TT in an official capacity. After years of persuasion and exhausting every excuse ever created, I’ve finally committed to racing at the world’s biggest motorsport event. I’ll be parading racing a Suzuki SV650 in the Lightweight TT... Read more
Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 Review
Love them or loathe them, modern retros are currently booming. Some major manufacturers are even declaring the segment as priority and, while the hipster fashion over function theme isn’t everyone’s cuppa, the scene has opened motorcycling to a broader audience. Ducati unveiled the Scrambler brand-within-a-brand at the end of... Read more
Video: 2016 MV Agusta Brutale 800 Review
Proving that peak power means bugger-all, and Euro4 restrictions don’t necessarily have to render the job in tatters, the 2016 MV Agusta Brutale 800 may well be the new king of naked middleweights. By making the Brutale less brutal and more accommodating to a wider range of pilots, MV... Read more
VanVlogs: Kawasaki H2R
In the first enthralling episode of an all-new cutting-edge series entitled VanVlogs, where we talk shit in a van, Kawasaki’s H2R is the subject matter. I was lucky to spin some laps on the Big K’s supercharged mothership at Brands Hatch during the final round of British Superbikes, and... Read more
Ducati XDiavel Review
It’s not often one receives an opportunity to fly halfway around the globe to ride luxury bikes in the equally luxurious California sunshine. Fortunately for me, recent events migrated from dream scenario to real life scenario when Ducati invited 44teeth to the XDiavel international press launch in San Diego.... Read more
The facts behind Euro4 emissions…
In case you hadn’t spotted the common theme among 2016’s fresh models, most have suffered with a mechanical form of exhaust elephantiasis. Yep, those vexatious officials introduced Euro4 emission regulations to save the planet but have scuppered cosmetics in the process, most notably Ducati’s 959 Panigale, which caused pandemonium...

How can Casey Stoner not race in 2016?
Probably because he’s got a family and a happier life in his native country, but that doesn’t stop the question being asked after Stoner ended the final day of MotoGP pre-season testing at Sepang 5th fastest, top Ducati on the timesheets, and 9th overall following three days in Malaysia... Read more
