Honda CB650R (2019 - ) review

Restyled, updated and renamed CB650F is lighter, sharper and classier than ever and remains, uniquely, the only affordable four-cylinder roadster in the middleweight class.

Indian Chieftain Dark Horse review Review 2 weeks ago

Indian Chieftain Dark Horse (2019 -) review

American upstart Harley rivals Indian up the game yet again its restyled, updated ‘bagger’ rival to H-D’s hugely popular (in the US) Street Glide. The Chieftain was always potent and useful, now it’s better than ever.
Honda CB500X Adventure Review Review 3 weeks ago

Honda CB500X Adventure (2019 - ) review

The original CB500X launched in 2013 as the ‘adventure’ variant of Honda’s A2 licence-friendly, CB500 twin family was already a great ‘first big bike’. With a host of updates for 2019 it’s better than ever

KTM 1290 Super Duke GT review

The old GT introduced 2016, basically a faired, more practical version of the ballistic, 175bhp Super Duke V-twin roadster, was already a brilliant bike. But this uprated, more refined version is better yet. A potent, near-perfect road machine.

Royal Enfield Continental GT (2019 - ) review

Indian-owned Royal Enfield take a significant step up with their two all-new (but old-looking) 650 twins. Compared to their previous, old-fashioned singles, the roadster Interceptor and this café racer GT are brisk, pleasing and should appeal to both new riders and older buffs, too.
BMW F850GS Adventure Review 3 months ago

BMW F850 Adventure (2019) Review

As with the previous F800 there’s now a big-tanked, more off-road Adventure version of BMW’s middleweight GS which brings some of the global, do-anything appeal of its best-selling boxer big brother in a more affordable and manageable package.

Indian Roadmaster Tourer review

The ‘full-dress’ Roadmaster is to revived US marque Indian what the legendary ElectraGlide is to its great rivals Harley-Davidson – but newer, bigger, fresher and, arguably better in every way
BMW R1200GS adventure Review 4 months ago

BMW R1200GS Adventure (2018 - ) review

The adventure version of BMW's class-defining GS has been the benchmark adventure bike for decades and, since 2013, led the way for refinement, sophistication and versatility. This latest updated version keeps it ahead of the pack.

BMW R1250GS Adventure (2018 - ) review

The definitive and best-selling full-bore adventure bike has just got better yet thanks to 84 extra ccs, BMW’s clever new ‘ShiftCam’ valve intake system and a resulting healthy boost in both power and torque across the board.

Kawasaki Versys 650 Adventure review

Third generation Versys 650 makes the middleweight adventure better still. Perky performance, peerless versatility and decent spec all for a brilliant price make this one of the best value all-rounders anywhere.

Ducati Multistrada 1260S Pikes Peak review

Top-spec, most performance-orientated version of Ducati’s Multistrada family gets the uprated, 160bhp 1260cc engine and more. So-called ‘adventure’ bikes simply don’t get more exotic – or potent.

KTM 790 Duke (2018 - ) review

KTM’s first middleweight twin, after decades of singles, was hugely anticipated and it’s lived up to the expectation – funky, lively and fun the 790’s lifted the whole Duke clan up to a new level.

Harley-Davidson Softail FXDR 114 (2018 - ) review

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.

Honda VFR800F Sports Tourer review

Honda’s classic old V4 sports-tourer is reinvented and reintroduced and is as versatile and classy as ever – it still can’t quite hide its old school roots, however.

Harley-Davidson Softail Fat Bob (2017 - ) review

All-new cruiser/hot rod heads Harley’s completely updated Softail cruiser family with new monoshock frame, updated engines, uprated cycle parts and an all-new look, this is a big step up from Harleys of yore.
CCM Spitfire Review 10 months ago

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. Versatile, practical or even sensible transport the Spitfire may not be, but as a cool, fun, city bike not much else comes close.
Aprilia SX125 Super Moto Review 10 months ago

Aprilia SX125 Super Moto (2018- ) review

New learner supermoto based on RS125 mechanicals shows Italian teenie exotica-maker Aprilia at its best: it's cool, fun, well-equipped and a doddle to ride - and it's not even that expensive.
