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…

Video: STAG Weekender featuring Nurse Shagwell
Who doesn’t love a good stag do? I certainly wasn’t loving mine on the Monday morning, laying vegetated in a state of despair and guilt. My best men decided that Brighton would be a suitable venue, and who was I to dispute such an idea? Coincidently, the chosen dates... Read more
10th Anniversary Triumph Street Triple R
Following several social media teasers, Triumph has just taken the wraps off several limited edition Street Triples to coincide with the STR’s 10 birthday. I recall the original launch back in 2006 near Lake Garda: there was a wheelie followed by another wheelie, then a wheelie before we attacked... Read more
Video: Panigale Pre-race Prep
We’re lucky enough to work with one of the best teams in the British Superbike paddock, not just amongst the throng of Ducati Cup runners. The P&H/Carl Cox squad amass endless hours of behind-the-scenes grafting and bike prep before and after every race. Race weekends are merely a fraction... Read more
2017 Model Release | 04/10/16 | Save The Date
Rather than attending the Intermot show in Cologne, we’ll be razzing £50k’s worth of superbike exotica round Estoril at the 44Teeth trackday and filming yet more delicious content. Sometimes you’ve got just gotta take the rough with the smooth. Anyway, enough willy waving… The point is, just because we’re... Read more
Video: Ducati Cup Vlog @ Oulton Park BSB + Onboard
Oulton Park is one of those archetypal UK racetracks. Stunning Cheshire scenery, an exhilarating rollercoaster of undulations, crests and rises, multiple surface changes and bordering on precarious in terms of safety – as verified last weekend with a few bikes greeting spectator areas. Not that I’m complaining though. If... Read more
Video: Motorcycle Insurance Q&A
Hands up who’s had painless associations with insurance companies? No? Us neither. And even if you have revelled in a hassle-free relationship, insurance is a complex subject matter besieged with foibles that most of us will never comprehend. It’s a jargon buster’s dream. A while ago, we asked if... Read more
Video: Super Duke GT to GP – EP02
It’s Saturday morning. We’re nursing gargantuan G&T hangovers and pizza comedowns after consuming far too much. The air is still thick with an overriding scent of the Partridge perfumery. There’s one of the most beautiful lakes and consequent backdrops you’ve ever seen. A pedalo elegantly dances on the water... Read more
2016 motorcycle sales: everyone loves being naked…
Fresh figures from the MCIA (Motorcycle Industry Association) have indicated that naked bikes, in 2016, are trendier than Chris Eubank Snr. Of the 79,234 motos registered so far this year – which is 6.9% up on 2015 and bloody good for motorcycling – 23,713 of those have been naked... Read more
Honda confirms X-ADV
After teasing us with the funky little City Adventure Concept in Milan last year, Honda has just confirmed the release of its production-based version – the X-ADV. Think maxi scooter with the ability to take bridleways as a shortcut to work, enter the Dakar rally, or nail 20ft tabletops... Read more

The latest addition to Yamaha’s Yard Built lushness is this inconspicuous SR400 retro racer. Built by Belgian custom builder, Fred ‘Krugger’ Bertrand, the 1970s lookalike takes inspiration from one of Valentino Rossi’s mechanics, Bernard Ansiau – who has also spannered for the likes of Wayne Rainey and Kenny Roberts.  ...

Video: Austrian MotoGP Special – GT to GP – EP01
As many 44T regulars will have clocked, we went on a little adventure to Austria recently, beginning at Salzburg airport and culminating at the Red Bull Ring for an awesome weekend of GP action. Fresh from a solo Euro excursion, Baron met me at the airport and we started... Read more
Photo Special: MV Agusta F4Z
Amidst a whirlwind of uncertainty regarding its future, MV Agusta has finally taken the wraps of this, erm, trendy little one-off number dubbed the F4Z. In collaboration with Zagato – an arty Italian coachbuilding firm – it was built for a Japanese entrepreneur using the MV Agusta F4 as... Read more
