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…

All you need to know about the 2021 KTM 890 Duke
We thought the world of KTM’s 890 Duke R when it appeared last year. It was like a 790 Duke, but better. It was the middleweight naked that rocked our world more than a middleweight naked had any right to. But KTM were keen to tell us that it... Read more
All you need to know about the new Aprilia RSV4…
We knew Aprilia were working on something, so when the press release for the new RSV4 and RSV4 Factory landed in the 44Teeth inbox all of a sudden, it didn’t come as a massive surprise. But when I opened it up and saw that it was only a page... Read more

2021 KTM 690 SMC R and Enduro R
The KTM 690 Enduro R and 690 SMC R are two bikes that are very easy to get carried away on. I know this because when they launched the updated 2019 versions in Portugal, I got carried away on them both. And crashed them both. On the same day. Luckily, I didn’t spanner myself (for once)... Read more
2021 Ducati Panigale V4 SP
I think you’ll all agree that this thing looks pretty gosh darn saucy. The 2021 Ducati Panigale V4 SP is the newest addition to the Panigale V4 family, and it’s a very welcome one indeed. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen the SP (Sport Production) initials on a Ducati sportsbike, too long really,... Read more
2021 Aprilia RS 660 Launch Review
When Fagan threw himself off an SV 650 and onto the tarmac at Castle Combe, pulling his poor shoulder out of its socket in the process, he quickly rendered himself unable to fly to Italy to test the all-new, ever-so-fancy Aprilia RS 660 – what a bastard! But his loss, on... Read more
2019 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade
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
All you need to know about the 2019 BMW S 1000 RR
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
2019 Aprilia RSV4 1100 Factory
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
KTM 790 Duke | First Impressions
There were two standout production bikes of 2018 at EICMA: Ducati’s Panigale V4 and the KTM 790 Duke. And, after Chris pulled a sicky, I hopped on the flu-ridden easyJet flight to Gran Canaria for the launch of KTM’s all-new naked middleweight contender.     The 799cc LC8c parallel... Read more
