Ducati Monster | First Ride
For nearly 30 years, (since 1993) Ducati have been churning out big, brutish naked bikes under the Monster moniker. Since then they’ve sold over 350,000 of them. That’s averaging over 1,000 a month. Fair play. Personally though, I’ve never been much of a Monsterphile. I think it’s because growing... Read more
Honda NT1100 | The all-new touring tool
‘Sports tourers’ were a bit of a thing a few years ago. People seemed to love them, and there were plenty to choose from. Nowadays though, a lot of the folk that were into their ‘sports tourers’ yesteryear, are bombing around on adventure bikes. Everywhere you look, there are... Read more
GASGAS | United in Dirt
If you’re into bikes, you’ve probably heard of GASGAS. They’ve been around since the 1985 and won 15 World Championships. But the fact that all of those World Championships have been in trials, a fairly niche sector of motorcycle sport, means GASGAS hasn’t ever really been much of a... Read more

Kawasaki Hybrid Motorcycle Revealed
We’ve talked about the idea of a hybrid motorcycle here before, and the consensus of opinion is that it wouldn’t really work, not with today’s technology. But Kawasaki think that it can, with tomorrow’s technology, anyway. That’s why they’ve just revealed a prototype model sporting some very interesting hybrid... Read more
MV Agusta Brutale 1000 Nürburgring | Limited Edition Porn
When MV Agusta email a press pack through for a new bike, I’m always more excited to see the pictures than read the words. Because I’ve learnt from experience that the pictures are usually more exciting. And the latest presser to drop into the 44teeth.com inbox is no exception.... Read more
Triumph Tiger Sport 660 | Triple Trippin’
After the success of the Triumph Trident 660, it ought to come as no surprise that the Hinkley crew, keen to capitalise on the popularity of their newest engine platform, have released this, the Tiger Sport 660. Think Triumph Trident, with a big fuel tank, a more upright riding... Read more
GSX-R1000R Phantom | The ‘new’ Gixxer
Fashion, politics and musical taste have divided opinions since the dawn of time. And they’re likely to ‘till the end of time, too. But there’s one thing that every single person in the entire world can agree on; and that’s that the old GSX-R1000 is exactly that – ‘old’... Read more
Ducati Multistrada V2 | Pleasure yourself
If you liked the old ‘Strada 950, you’re going to love this. It’s the new Ducati Multistrada V2 and it’s lighter and more comfortable than the ‘950’ that it replaces. Ok, it’s not actually any more powerful, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get excited about the new ‘Mini-Multi’.... Read more
Kawasaki Z650RS | A Retro Revolution?
Kawasaki claim to have started a retro revolution – or a ‘retrovolution’ – with the introduction of this, the Z650RS. They reckon it’ll open up the mid-capacity class to ‘a wide range of riders’; although you’d probably have to say that it’s already open to most. Nevertheless, if you’re... Read more
MV Agusta F3 RR | Supersport Wet Dream
Who said the Supersport sector was dead? Whoever it was, it doesn’t sound like MV Agusta got the memo because they’ve just released this, the F3 RR. Alright, it might not be a Supersport bike in the true ‘Supersport 600’ sense of the word, with its 147bhp, 798cc engine,... Read more
2021 Suzuki GSX-S1000GT
When Suzuki let slip that there’s a new model coming, I almost let myself get excited. Could it be a new GSX-R1000? Well, it turns out that, indeed, is too much to ask for. Rather than give us what we’ve all been asking for, for a good few years... Read more
