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…
Happy New Year! We hope 2020 brings you joy, laughter, health, warm trackdays in foreign lands, new motorbikes and oodles of cash frequently handed to you in binbags; perhaps even welcoming Charlotte McKinney as your lover. Anyway, regulars may have spotted we’ve been a bit slack when it... Read more
Despite what some ladies say, size doesn’t always matter – as proven here by the Honda Monkey. Packing a heroic 9bhp and weighing less than one of my heftier turds, it’s no surprise that the Monkey is hilarious fun in any environment, which is why we took a pair of the... Read more
Let’s begin with a big, fat Happy New Year to all 44Teefers, before moving on swiftly to more pressing matters; like binning the dustbin on our Suzuki GSX-R1000R longtermer. Remember this fine steed? It’s played second fiddle to work commitments in recent months (like Budget Bike Battles) but the... Read more
While cruising around Motorcycle Live at the NEC, Chris managed to grab Sepp Mächler, who is the 2019 BMW S 1000 RR project manager and knows his way around this all-new Bavarian beauty. In an exclusive chat where Chris claims he has a dog, the pair get down to business... Read more
Carnage is a hackneyed word these days – almost default in a millennial’s vocabulary – but there’s no other way of describing the Weston Beach Race. Nothing can prepare for this shit; three hours of digging sandcastles with a cacophony of racing engines and a bouquet of sweet two-stroke,... Read more
It looks like we’ll be waiting at least another year for the much-craved Honda V4 superbike, as the Big H has just released details of its 2019 Fireblade – and it’s not a V4. In fact, and not surprisingly after just two years, it’s very similar. While it looks... Read more
Here it is sports fans; perhaps the most eagerly-awaited sportsbike model update for years. You’ve probably seen some shit internet pics being tossed around in recent weeks but the 2019 BMW S 1000 RR – thankfully – looks pretty sexual in production trim. And with actual paint. Anyway. Enough... Read more
Aprilia was first to launch its new metal ahead of the EICMA show in Milan next week, with the Noale factory unveiling the 2019 RSV4 1100 Factory. Murmurings of an 1100 have been bubbling away for the while now, and many site this as a middle finger salute to... Read more
The first episode of the greatest thing ever to appear on the interwebs is now live. Yep, the first action-packed instalment of our 999 v F4 roadtrip took the world wide web by storm last week, highlighting our touring woes as we leave England for Baden-Baden (it’s so good-good)... Read more
