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…

Triumph Bonneville Bobber Review
I suppose I could compare Triumph’s Bonneville Bobber to mushrooms. Not those naughty magic ones, just simple everyday mushrooms that provide unconditional taste sensations to billions of people around the world. Having spent years neglecting ‘shrooms through a bizarre trepidation, I eventually sampled the blighters well into my 20s... Read more
2017 Yamaha MT-09 Review
Working weekends is sometimes acceptable, particularly when it involves pulling mahoosive wheelies and shredding rubber in sunnier climes, and post-ride Spanish-spec G&Ts. You know, the goldfish bowls? As the front wheel returned from Earth’s troposphere for the umpteenth time that day, the 2017 Yamaha MT-09 convinced me this notion... Read more
Triumph Bonneville T100 Review
It’s a cold, crisp November afternoon. The autumnal leaves garnish the countryside, or something. I’m bloody freezing and my willy has disappeared. Perhaps the über-vented Alpinestars ankle boots weren’t the sensible option. It’s okay though, because I look cooler than fresh ice cream smeared over the other side of... Read more
Video: Yamaha MT-10 Review
Better later than never – and filmed primarily at the glamorous resort of JHS Racing – here’s our comprehensive review of Yamaha’s MT-10 in video formateo. Baron blagged his way onto the world press launch for 44T near Almeria in Spain and came back incoherently jizzing over its crossplane... Read more
Yamaha MT-10 Review
44Teeth jetted off to Almeria in southern Spain for the European press launch of the spanking new Yamaha MT-10, and a spot of sausage tapas. It’s not a naked R1 (the MT, not the tapas). Firstly, let’s address the looks. It’s caused great debates amongst the 44t social interwebs... Read more
Ducati Hypermotard 939 Review
It’s always nice to walk away from a press launch without speeding fines or jail visits, particularly mischievous motorcycles that entice hooliganism with minimal provocation, very like the Hypermotard. Although niche in many eyes, Ducati’s fun-packed stunter has always been a personal favourite since model’s inception: that original air-cooled... Read more
Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 Review
Love them or loathe them, modern retros are currently booming. Some major manufacturers are even declaring the segment as priority and, while the hipster fashion over function theme isn’t everyone’s cuppa, the scene has opened motorcycling to a broader audience. Ducati unveiled the Scrambler brand-within-a-brand at the end of... Read more
Ducati XDiavel Review
It’s not often one receives an opportunity to fly halfway around the globe to ride luxury bikes in the equally luxurious California sunshine. Fortunately for me, recent events migrated from dream scenario to real life scenario when Ducati invited 44teeth to the XDiavel international press launch in San Diego.... Read more
2016 MV Agusta Brutale 800 Review
“How is handling compromised while nursing an erection,” was probably the finest pre-ride enquiry regarding the 2016 MV Agusta Brutale 800. MV’s stalwart naked of 15 years has undergone a hefty set of engine and chassis revisions in 800cc form, plus obeying to bastard Euro4 emission regs – all... Read more
Ridden: OHVALE GP-0
OHVALE sounds like something that Linda Morselli would whisper into the ears of Valentino Rossi during an erotic session between the sheets. Maybe Marc Marquez was shouting such expletives in the gravel traps of Malaysia? However, OHVALE is also an Italian brand of motorcycles currently setting trends, attesting size... Read more
Ducati 959 Panigale Review | First Ride
According to Ducati, yellow superbikes from Bologna only sold during springtime when daffodils were in bloom. While I do miss the slightly unorthodox yellow Ducatis, I wasn’t fussed about pantone specifics on the approach to Valencia’s super-fast turn one aboard the new 959 Panigale. Or that exhaust. In a...

Yamaha R1M: The Beautiful Darkness
I’ve often wondered if vehicles have a soul. It’s a silly notion that inanimate objects can have a bearing and influence over one’s life, or indeed bestow it with love or fear or mediocrity. These things enter our lives as blank storyless books, empty pages waiting to be filled.... Read more
