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…

Honda confirms X-ADV
After teasing us with the funky little City Adventure Concept in Milan last year, Honda has just confirmed the release of its production-based version – the X-ADV.

Yamaha Tracer 700 Review
Sports-tourers and more versatile steeds are stealing headlines (and customers) from 200bhp and chasing tenths. A reflection of motorcycling in general? Of society? Or just evolution? Yamaha’s stonking new Tracer 700 is the epitome of this trend. Based on the MT-07, Yamaha has taken an incredible template – that... Read more

Fresh from a Brexit comedown (and a non-fictional Glastonbury one too), 44Teeth headed to the Dolomites in Italy for the European press launch of Yamaha’s Tracer 700: a sports-touring middleweight based heavily on the MT-07.

2016 Honda MSX125
2016 looks as though it’s a year commanded by cosmetics and shrewd mechanical tweaks for Honda. Africa Twin aside, the Big H’s focus has clearly been on budget middleweights and A2 derivatives (bikes that sell and make money), with a medley of aesthetical updates bossing the MY16 headlines.    ...
