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.

Peugeot Speedfight 4 Scooter (2017 - ) review

The original Speedfight in 1997 set the template for the 16-er sports scooter. This latest version, complete with phone dock, USB socket and more is still the standard by which all others are judged.

Honda X-ADV Scooter (2018 - ) review

Slightly bonkers half-scooter, half-adventure bike hybrid is a bold, welcome addition and actually blends practicality and fun. A scooter like no other and brilliantly executed, but it is 10 grand…

Suzuki SV650X Naked (2018 - ) review

Humble but appealing and affordable SV650 roadster V-twin gets a half-hearted retro/café racer makeover yet it somehow adds up to an appealing, affordable and fun bike.

Yamaha Tracer 900 GT Sports Tourer (2018 - ) GT review

The original Tracer 900 was a great bike, a faired, more long-legged version of the brilliant MT-09 roadster, now for 2018 it's improved with revised bodywork and seating while this top spec GT version, with panniers, adjustable suspension and more is even better yet.

Triumph Speed Triple 1050 RS review

The original super naked gets even better for 2018. Reworked triple gives 10bhp extra, there's a new colour TFT display, updated electronics, new wheels and, in top spec RS form, Ohlins suspension, Arrow cans, further electronics updates, carbon goodies and more.

Honda GL1800 Goldwing Custom Cruiser (2018 - ) review

New Gold Wings don't come around very often so this all-new 2018 example (the last was in 2001) is big, big news. It's been worth the wait, too: more power, lighter weight, a DCT option and more equipment than most can imagine.

Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin Adventure (2018 - ) review

Enlarged version of base CRF1000L Africa Twin gets longer suspension, bigger tank and screen and far more style and stature without compromising its easy versatility - it's the bike the revived Africa Twin always should have been.

Triumph Tiger Adventure (2018 - ) review

Triumph’s triple has always been one of the best middleweight adventure offerings but in this updated, top-spec, XC/off-road orientated guise it has the equipment and ability to rival the full-size competition.

Indian Scout 1200 Custom Cruiser (2017 - ) review

Revived historic US brand Indian had already ruffled Harley-Davidson’s feathers with the launch of its impressive, all-new ‘Big Twin’, 1800cc Chieftain in early 2014 but it’s more entry-level, Sportster-rivalling 1200cc Scout, launched later that year really put the cat among the pigeons.

Suzuki SV650 Sports Tourer (2017 - ) review

Reintroduced, updated version of classic, no-frills V-twin roadster is just as charming, useful and affordable as the original, which dates all the way back to 1999 but despite facelift is showing its age slightly.
Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX Review 4 months ago

Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX Sports Tourer (2018 - ) review

Sports-tourer SX is latest addition to Kawasaki’s radical, supercharged H2 family and, with toned-down performance and prices is set to be the most popular. It’s still a wild, 200bhp ride, though.

Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade Super Sports (2017) review

Hugely anticipated and a long time coming, Honda is back with not one, but THREE all-new Fireblades and, for the most part, it’s been worth the wait even if it’s not head-and-shoulders the class leader some hoped for.
Ducati Monster 1200 Review 5 months ago

Ducati Monster 1200 Naked (2014 - ) review

Fully-updated big Monster was also, controversially, the first liquid-cooled version. It might have lost some of the original’s purity and simplicity but its raw, roadster spirit survives and, with 145bhp and available in three specs, it’s better than ever.

Harley-Davidson Sport Glide (2018 - ) review

Harley has already launched eight new Softail cruisers for 2018 based around its all-new monoshock frame, updated engine and improved styling and equipment but this all-new part-tourer/part cruiser is possibly the best yet.

KTM Superduke Naked (2017 - ) review

Dubbed ‘The Beast’ even by KTM themselves this 170bhp monster is about as fierce as super nakeds get – although it’s significantly more refined thanks to a host of updates for 2017.

Triumph Speed Triple Naked (2016 - ) review

Top-spec Ohlins-equipped version of the Brit firm’s class-defining super naked has been fully updated and uprated. There’s the same unique style and three-cylinder character but now with added ability and electronics.

KTM 125 Duke learner/roadster (2017 - ) review

There wasn’t much wrong with the old 125 Duke, but KTM has improved it anyway with new styling, frame, suspension, posh clocks, and an LED headlamp that keep it ahead of the pack.

Triumph Street Triple Naked (2017 - ) review

The old 675cc Street Triple was already by far the best bike in the middleweight super naked class. This all-new version, which comes in three different main variants, is better is every way.
