Triumph Tiger Adventure (2018 - ) review

Triumph’s triple has always been one of the best middleweight adventure offerings but in this updated, top-spec, XC/off-road orientated guise it has the equipment and ability to rival the full-size competition.

Indian Scout 1200 Custom Cruiser (2017 - ) review

Revived historic US brand Indian had already ruffled Harley-Davidson’s feathers with the launch of its impressive, all-new ‘Big Twin’, 1800cc Chieftain in early 2014 but it’s more entry-level, Sportster-rivalling 1200cc Scout, launched later that year really put the cat among the pigeons.

Suzuki SV650 Sports Tourer (2017 - ) review

Reintroduced, updated version of classic, no-frills V-twin roadster is just as charming, useful and affordable as the original, which dates all the way back to 1999 but despite facelift is showing its age slightly.

Top 5 'Maxi' scooters

Maxi' or 'super' scooters, as they're sometimes called, are an increasingly popular modern phenomena - larger engined, luxury scooters that, while still easy (ish) around town and with all the practicality (if not more) of traditional scooters (being easy to ride around town, relatively clean and with plenty of luggage space) also have the virtue of being capable of motorway speeds for longer distance commuting.

Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX Sports Tourer (2018 - ) review

Sports-tourer SX is latest addition to Kawasaki’s radical, supercharged H2 family and, with toned-down performance and prices is set to be the most popular. It’s still a wild, 200bhp ride, though.

Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade Super Sports (2017) review

Hugely anticipated and a long time coming, Honda is back with not one, but THREE all-new Fireblades and, for the most part, it’s been worth the wait even if it’s not head-and-shoulders the class leader some hoped for.

Ducati Monster 1200 Review 3 months ago

Ducati Monster 1200 Naked (2014 - ) review

Fully-updated big Monster was also, controversially, the first liquid-cooled version. It might have lost some of the original’s purity and simplicity but its raw, roadster spirit survives and, with 145bhp and available in three specs, it’s better than ever.
