Harley’s all-new Softail family of cruisers has been big news and the radically-styled, hot rod FXDR is the boldest, brashest yet. But though striking it’s uncomfortable, no more potent and pricey, too.

CCM Spitfire (2018-) review

Historic British cottage bike builder CCM has grabbed the headlines with its new Spitfire by responding to the fashion for retro-influenced café racer/scrambler fun bikes better than almost anyone.
