Yamaha MT-10 SP Review
With the exception of Fatima Whitbread, brutal has never been associated with beautiful: a motto perfectly suited to Yamaha’s MT-10. An ingenious concoction of R1-derived sportiness and sheer naked lunacy has given us way more to cogitate than its Johnny Five aesthetics, proving that beauty isn’t purely skin deep.... Read more
Video: Triumph Street Cup + Scrambler Review
Triumph is currently in a pretty decent state of affairs, claiming number one ‘big-bike’ brand in the UK and having the luxury of its modern retro steeds selling themselves for fun. There’s also a fresh wave of performance-enhancing roadsters emerging, led by the new Street Triple 765. And, having... Read more
Video: Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled Review
Meet our new mate, Des. Launched in the Sierra Nevada desert in Spain, Ducati’s latest addition to the Scrambler range could well be the best derivative yet, despite Bologna engineers injecting additional off-road genes into the Desert Sled. And the fact it looks like an old Yamaha XT is... Read more
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
Video: Triumph Bonneville T100 Review
Fresh from an overhaul for 2017, Triumph’s Bonneville T100 was treated to a mini UK press launch in Hinckley and I spent the day freezing my knackers off in the Leicestershire countryside. At least I looked cool. It’s a bike that delivers just as much at 10mph as it... Read more
Video: Scrambler Sixty2 Launch – EP02
Apologies for the radio silence. We’ve been embroiled in a super-hectic fortnight of hedonism, stag sessions, and circumnavigating the globe. Well, Austria and other morsels of western Europe to be precise. But fear not, as we’re back in full 44Turbo mode with the second episode of the Ducati Scrambler... Read more
Video: Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 Launch – EP01
Months ago, we were cordially invited to the Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 launch in Barcelona. Both of us. 44T en masse. Brilliant. The downside? Sharing a bed. This is Ducati’s first assault on the A2 segment and the A2 segment’s first premium entry in a field of budget, sparrow-limbed steeds.... 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
Video: Yamaha Tracer 700 – First Ride
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. First there was the XSR700 offshoot to appease the modern retro heads. Now there’s... 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
Video: Bridgestone S21 Review
It’s not every day you get to shred rubber like Ron Jeremy under the floodlights of Yas Marina, yet Baron did so aboard a feast of 2016 machinery. Here’s all you need to know about Bridgestone’s all-new S21 rubber in 14 minutes.     Read more
Metzeler Racetec RR K3 Review
Tyres: the final say in whether we remain upright or kiss the tarmac, and an ever-subjective topic for every one of us. Rubber technology and R&D has been drastically enhanced recently to cope with the demands of the latest crop of 200bhp howitzers and, such is the grip on... Read more
