Triumph Bobber Bobber (2016 - ) review

British favourites Triumph continue to lead the way with its retros. 2016’s all-new Bonneville roadster twins spawned 2017’s US-custom influenced Bobber in turn leading to this even better blacked-out, fat-tyred version.

BMW’s reintroduced sports-tourer version of its big boxer gets a significant update for 2019 by way of not just the new ShiftCam engine but also refreshed looks, TFT screen, LED lights and more – it’s a great all-rounder

Triumph Street Twin review (2019 - )

Triumph’s entry-level Bonnie gets a significant boost with improvements to its engine, suspension, brakes and more – the result is a great introduction to retro roadsters.
Indian FTR1200 review Review 4 months ago

Indian FTR1200 review (2019 - )

Revived US brand Indian enters the sports/naked category with this street tracker inspired by its all-dominant FTR750 AMA flat track racers but based on hotted-up Scout 1200 mechanicals – it’s brilliant, too: an American Monster!
Ducati Diavel 1260 S review Review 4 months 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…

Kawasaki W800 Café (2019 - ) review

Revived retro now complies with latest EU regulations, has been refreshed and updated and comes in two forms: a pleasant, Bonneville T100-style roadster called the Street and this stylish and sporty café racer.

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 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 5 months 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 5 months 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 Review 5 months ago

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 6 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 6 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.

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 7 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
