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 2 years ago

BMW F850GS 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 2 years ago

BMW R1200GS Adventure Adventure (2017 - ) 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 2 years ago

BMW R1250GS Adventure 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 1260 Adventure (2017 - ) 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 Naked (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 (2017 - ) 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 2 years 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 2 years 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.
Peugeot Speedfight 4 Scooter Review 2 years ago

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 Review 2 years ago

Honda X-ADV Scooter (2017 - ) 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 Review 2 years ago

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 Review 2 years ago

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 2 years ago

Triumph Speed Triple 1050 Naked (2011 - ) 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.
