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…

2022 CFMOTO 700CL-X Sport
CFMOTO are trying their best to change our minds about what it means to own a Chinese motorcycle. Their latest ruse, in the fight against far-east-phobia, is this, the 700CL-X Sport. It’s a slightly sportier, slightly tricker version of their 700CL-X, and they’re in the dealerships as of today.... Read more
2022 BMW K 1600 | First Ride
A change is as good as a rest, or so the old proverb goes. And as far as I’m aware, that’s a fairly accurate statement. I love a change. In fact a lot of the time, I’d prefer a change over a rest. Variety is the spice of life,... Read more
Ducati launches ‘Unica’ customisation program 
Anyone fancy some camouflage on their Panigale? Perhaps some tricolore Brembos? 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. The... Read more

A KTM in CFMoto clothing | 800MT
If I was a motorcycle manufacturer and I wanted to release a new middleweight adventure bike, I’d take a look at what KTM were doing. And then I’d try and do something similar. That’s exactly what CFMoto have done. In fact ‘similar’ doesn’t really cut it. That’s because the... Read more
Limited Edition Razgatlıoğlu Replica R1
A few weeks ago, Yamaha showed off a really trick R1 that they’d built for Valentino Rossi, to celebrate everything he’d done for Yamaha during his MotoGP career. And I’ll admit, I got a bit shirty about it. They’d built an absolutely incredible sounding track bike, but they weren’t... Read more

2022 Ducati DesertX
Taking a Ducati through the middle of a desert might not’ve been very high on a lot of peoples priority list before 2019. Since then though, and thanks to the introduction of the Ducati DesertX, if it isn’t on your list of priorities, it should be. And even more... Read more
2022 Triumph Tiger 1200 | A new adventure
It sounds like Hinkley lot mean business with the 2022 Triumph Tiger 1200. Rather than just updating what is/was a very serviceable adventure bike with a new colour scheme, they’ve gone all the way back to the drawing board to create a lighter, faster, and altogether more capable machine....

Bimota KB4 | Exotica?
Did you know, Kawasaki own a 49.9% stake in Bimota? No? Well now you do. That might have something to do with the fact that the new slightly retro looking Bimota KB4 sportsbike has a big, fat, Kawasaki engine running it. Just last week, at the Milan Motorcycle Show... Read more
