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.

KTM Duke Naked (2017 - ) review

Funky, lightweight, supermoto-inspired, single-cylinder roadster is fresh, fun and so easy to ride it was already one of the most appealing A2 licence compliant machines. Updates for 2017, however, make it even better yet…

Honda CB650F Roadster (2017 - ) review

The unfaired CBR650F replaced the Hornet in 2014, and this mild update gives the budget but fun middleweight four some welcome extra oomph and attitude.
2017 KTM 1290 S Super Adventure Review 2 months ago

KTM 1290 S Super Adventure (2017 - ) review

KTM’s flagship adventure bike now comes in three 1290 variants: T touring, R off-road, and this S road-biased all-rounder. With 160bhp and cutting edge electronics, adventure bikes have never been so flash, or fast.

Honda CB1100EX Naked (2017 - ) review

Honda’s take on the retro roadster, an all-new, air-cooled, DOHC-four inspired by past CBs, was a beautiful creation, but criticised for being too soft and bland. This hefty revision, plus a hotter, new RS version, changes that…
2017 Honda CBR650F Review 2 months ago

Honda CBR650F Super Sports (2017 - ) review

Just when you thought affordable, sporty, 600-class all-rounders were a thing of the past, along comes this. It’s not flash or fancy, but the CBR650F pretty much does it all, and for under £7,000.
2017 Kawasaki Z900 Review 3 months ago

Kawasaki Z900 Naked (2017 - ) review

The new Z900 revives its historic name, but the bike can’t match the ‘70s original’s significance. Effectively a Z800 replacement, it’s a junior Z1000, without that bike’s electronics. While it’s a decent option if you want an affordable Japanese four, it can’t match Triumph’s latest Street Triple.
2017 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 Review 3 months ago

Suzuki V-Strom 1000 Adventure (2017 - ) review

Suzuki’s slightly budget adventure offering was reintroduced in 2014 with a reworked version of the old TL1000 V-twin. It was worthy, rather than thrilling. This year brings a few tweaks to meet Euro4, and while it’s better, it’s not better by much.
2017 Suzuki V-Strom 650 Review 4 months ago

Suzuki V-Strom 650 Adventure (2017- ) review

The class-defining V-Strom may have been the original and best midi-adventure bike since 2004, but despite a 2011 facelift, it was overdue an update. This restyle with extra goodies delivers, but doesn’t leap ahead.
2017 Kawasaki Ninja 650 Review 4 months ago

Kawasaki Ninja 650 Sports Tourer (2017 - ) review

The revamped, renamed version of the old ER-6f is much more than just a facelift of the popular faired middleweight twin: it’s lighter, more potent and better equipped, too. As a sporty first middleweight, it’s one of the best.
