Ducati Diavel 1260 S review Review 4 days ago

Ducati Diavel 1260 S review (2019-)

The original 2011 Diavel revolutionized what ‘cruisers’ were capable of with 160bhp and sportsbike handling, now this all-new version goes a stage further with variable valve-timing, sharper chassis, uprated electronics and more. Compared to a Harley it’s the Starship Enterprise…

Zero SR/F (2019 - ) electric bike review

Electric bikes may be the future but common consensus is their performance, range and price isn’t quite there yet. But Zero’s new SR/F is the closest thing yet.
Vespa GTS 300 HPE Review 1 month ago

Vespa GTS300 HPE (2019 - ) review

Vespa’s range-topping GTS has long been the definitive and most stylish scooter of all and the 300 variant the fastest and best of the bunch. Now it gets a new high performance engine (HPE) plus a host of updates to make it better than ever.
2019 Triumph Bonneville Speed Twin review Review 1 month ago

Triumph Bonneville Speed Twin (2019 - ) review

Triumph may now offer a bewildering array of so-called ‘Modern Classics’ motorcycles that fuse traditional style with the latest technology, but Jon Quirk reckons the Bonneville Speed Twin could be the pick of the bunch. A day trip taking in the best B-roads of East Sussex only served to confirm this.
Harley-Davidson Livewire Review 1 month ago

Harley-Davidson LiveWire (2019 - ) review

Harley-Davidson is the first large motorcycle manufacturer to take the leap of faith into an electrified future. Jon Quirk finds out if the Livewire has sufficient spark to tempt Harley’s existing customer base.

BMW S 1000 RR (2019 - ) review

BMW’s original S 1000 RR shook up the superbike establishment in 2009 with its class-bashing 190bhp and revolutionary electronic riding aids, 10 years on this all-new 207bbhp version has done it again.
Aprilia Tuono 1100 V4 Naked (2019 - ) review Review 2 months ago

Aprilia Tuono 1100 V4 Naked (2019 - ) review

Aprilia’s RSV4-based naked has been among the best ever since it’s introduction in 1000cc form in 2011. Enlarged to 1100cc in 2015, uprated so well in 2017 it was our ‘Best Naked’, it’s now been uprated further with semi-active suspension. Superb.
Yamaha Tracer 700 GT Review 2 months ago

Yamaha Tracer 700 GT (2019 - ) review

Like with Yamaha’s Tracer 900 GT, the 700 GT is an up-specced, more tourer version of the already brilliant and great value Tracer 700. Although not as thorough or lavish as the bigger version, panniers, tall screen and comfort seat make a brilliant all-rounder even better – for just £600 more.

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 (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 months 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 6 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 (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 R 1250 GS Adventure 2019 Review 7 months ago

BMW R1250GS Adventure (2019 - ) 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.
