Video: Battle Italia | 90 SECONDS OF EPIC
Here’s what we’ve been working on for the past month or so, and what we’ll continue to work on in the coming weeks; editing 8 days’ worth of epic footage from numerous cameras after cavorting through France, Germany, Switzerland and Italy aboard our Italian exotica, and ending at Mugello…...

Zwarte Cross 2018
What happens when you bring 220,000 crazy partygoers into a festival atmosphere, chuck in an international-spec motocross track and a complete lack of health and safety, and a few KTM 790 Dukes? Zwarte Cross. That’s what.     44T regulars will know that Chris absolutely loves motocross and anything off-road... Read more
Video: Budget Bike Battle Italia
Hi there. Yes, you. Sorry, been a bit baron on the 44T interwebs of late, which is down to spending excessive periods locked in a room, editing the Budget Bike Battle blockbuster series among other excuses. We’ve also been trying to launch an all-new website that’s proven far more... Read more
DYNO | Ducati Panigale V4
Ah, dynos: the topic of many pub debates and catalyst for severed friendships. We don’t tend to upload too many, although the Ducati Panigale V4 was too god damn sexy to dismiss given its plausible hype and game-changing protocol. Ducati claims a monstrous 215bhp (at the crank), so what... Read more
The £2,500,000 Garage | Yamaha Racing Experience
What happens when Yamaha assembles 150 R1Ms into the garage at Silverstone? You have yourselves a £2,500,000 garage. That’s exactly what happened last August (yes, we know, apologies for the late upload) when the Yamaha Racing Experience rolled into the UK for what should have been the ultimate trackday....

Ducati Panigale V4 Review
You’ve probably heard murmurings from last weekend’s Ducati Panigale V4 world press launch in Valencia, although you probably haven’t heard about a few of us taking some rental bikes (Valencia’s equivalent of Boris Bikes) and riding them down steps and swapping brake cables and basically imitating Mat Hoffman. Anyway,... Read more
Budget Bike Battle | ZX-7R Update
While the SRAD lays dormant at JHS Racing awaiting further surgery, and I plan the next haemorrhaging of spondoolies, Chris has been, erm, busy doing nothing with the ZX-7R. Okay, that isn’t strictly accurate, but he’s adopted a far more frugal/lazy approach to the Budget Bike Battle and even... Read more
Ducati Panigale V4 | Onboard at Valencia
Head down, bum up, gut caressing the tank, the dash is reading nearly 300kmh before braking into Valencia’s bonkers first turn. Every lap I tell myself to brake later, as the Ducati Panigale V4 has so much more talent in reserve to gobble corners, but my brain says no.... Read more
Budget Bike Battle | SRAD Update
Nothing shouts success quite like riding your rolling rustbucket to Africa, which exactly what we’re doing for the ultimate Budget Bike Battle finale. Perhaps we’ll even make it back to Blighty with some TLC to the SRAD and ZX-7R. A roadtrip to Africa (well, Morocco to be precise) means... Read more
Close-up: British Superbike Electronics
Happy New Year to all 44Teefers. We hope you drank plenty, the turkey comedown wasn’t too horrendous, and Santa bought a big sack of kickass. Apologies for the lack of fresh content recently on this splendiferous site; it’s a new year and, while the videos have been flowing, we’ve... Read more
2018 Triumph Tiger 1200 Review
In isolation, the Triumph Tiger Explorer was an excellent workhorse: comfy, solid with a sexy soundtrack. Against its more modern adventure bike peers, the Trumpet felt like a tired, saggy old granny that lacked some 21st century essentials. Thankfully, there are over 100 changes to the Tiger 1200 for...

Desmosedici D16RR v 1299 Panigale R Final Edition
I don’t care who you are, what you are or where you are, nothing arouses your erogenous zones like a Ducati Desmosedici D16RR – either in the saddle or gawping as a bystander. The V4-powered GP replica was released in 2007 in splendiferous affair and a hefty amount of... Read more
