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 rode Kawasaki’s 2016 ZX-10R and Yamaha’s R1 down to Parcmotor near Barcelona: 1000 road miles in every condition imaginable followed by two days of track spankings on one of Europe’s hidden gems.

Hopefully the... Read more
As you probably would have gathered by now, we spent some time with James Hillier – the third fastest man ever to lap the Isle of Man TT course – down at his team base of Bournemouth Kawasaki in, erm, Bournemouth. There was our TT-based chat and Maccas drive-thru... Read more
Inspirational legend and the world’s first paraplegic road racer, Talan Skeels-Piggins, is featured in this trailer by Speechless Films: Dream the Impossible. Proud comrade of 44Teeth, Talan went onto setup The Bike Experience – a charity that teaches riders with an array of disabilities how to get back on... Read more
Being a two-man ensemble has its obvious limitations, like spreading ourselves across the world in a quest for content leaving little time remaining to actually fulfil the job of running 44T.
