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...

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…

Or would sir prefer some subtle pinstriping on one’s seat?  Well, Ducati has just launched ‘Ducati Unica’ – unica translates to unique, FYI – which offers customers the chance to jazz-up existing models to their required taste.

2022 Ducati Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak Review
Why we’re not at Dakar ’22…
The eagle-eyed amongst you would have spotted we’re not in Saudi Arabia, lining up for Dakar ’22.

Sure, 1000cc sportsbikes aren’t currently busting the sales charts, but there’s nothing sexier than gathering seven of the latest superbikes together and creating gold. And to make things sexier, we took them to the... Read more
