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…

Triumph Speed Triple 1200 RR
After a bit of teasing and a bit of leaking, Triumph have finally let us know exactly what the new Speed Triple 1200 RR is all about. Much to the disappointment of many, it’s not a Superbike. I know we’re all desperate for Triumph to build a big-bore Daytona,... Read more

If you’ve always fancied an MV Agusta Brutale 1000 RR (who hasn’t?), but can’t afford one, you’ll be pleased to read the news that MV are launching a Brutale 1000 RS; a more ‘accessible’ version of the ridiculously fast, ridiculously sexy, ridiculously expensive ‘RR’. But it’s still fast, it’s... Read more

The throttle works both ways.
A mate of mine passed his bike test about 20 years ago, spent a couple of years occasionally wobbling about on an SV650 and then got it nicked. In a fit of understandable rage he vowed never to own a motorcycle again; their just too ‘nickable’ he said. But... Read more
