KTM 125 Duke learner/roadster (2017 - ) review

There wasn’t much wrong with the old 125 Duke, but KTM has improved it anyway with new styling, frame, suspension, posh clocks, and an LED headlamp that keep it ahead of the pack.

Triumph Street Triple Naked (2017 - ) review

The old 675cc Street Triple was already by far the best bike in the middleweight super naked class. This all-new version, which comes in three different main variants, is better is every way.

Suzuki GSXR1000 R Super Sports (2017 - ) review

We’ve been waiting a long time for an all-new, competitive GSX-R1000, but this top-spec R version, along with its more basic and affordable standard sibling, is more than worth the wait. It’s powerful, agile, bristling with the latest electronics, good value and already a TT winner.

Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 Factory Super Sports (2017 - ) review

The naked, roadster version of Aprilia’s WSB-winning RSV4 superbike has always been up there with the very best super nakeds, especially since its enlargement from 1000 to 1100cc. Now, for 2017, its chassis, engine and electronics are enhanced even further. A brilliant road sportster.

Lexmoto Echo Moped (2015 - ) review

At the introductory end of the A1 class, 50cc scooter market, the best bikes can sometimes be simply the most accessible or affordable ones, as long as they're still functional and desirable. The Lexmoto Echo 50 scores strongly on both counts, hence its huge popularity.

Kawasaki Z650 Roadster/Sports (2017 - ) review

Don’t be distracted by the revived, historic name, this new Z650 is an updated successor to the ER-6n middleweight twin. That bike – novice-friendly, perky and affordable – was already a class-leader. This, with a new lighter chassis, boosted engine and improved looks, is better still.

Aprilia RS 125 Sports (2017 - ) review

The four-stroke successor to the legendary two-stroke learner sportster may now play to a different soundtrack, but it remains a mini-superbike and the ultimate learner dream bike.

Aprilia Tuono 125 Roadster (2017 - ) review

The naked, roadster version of Aprilia’s exotic RS 125 sportster is back and better than ever. With classy, RS 125 running gear, a useful, four-stroke powertrain, and Tuono 1000 styling, A1-compliant roadsters don’t get much more appealing.
