Yamaha Tracer 700 Sports Tourer (2016 - ) review

Adventure-styled, sport-touring version of the perky and value-packed MT-07 twin follows in the successful footsteps of its three-cylinder Tracer 900 bigger brother. It’s an equally compelling package.

Harley-Davidson 883 Iron review (2009 - )

Introduced in 2009, the bare and black ‘Iron’ has assumed the mantle of being Harley’s cheapest, entry-level bike. Since then, it’s proved a great success, and is the best-selling machine of its type.

Honda GL1800 Goldwing Tourer (2001 - ) review

This classic ‘full dress’ tourer may be aging and lack the sophistication, power and latest gadgets of newer rivals, but it remains the definitive example of the breed with a huge following and equally enormous mile-eating ability
2016 Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin Review 2 years ago

Honda Africa Twin adventure (2016 - ) review

The Honda Africa Twin is an iconic adventure bike re-launched and reinvented in 2016. It has been developed to be as competent and credible off-road as it is on-road
Indian Springfield Review 2 years ago

Indian Springfield Cruiser (2016 - ) review

Revived US firm Indian go from strength to strength with this direct competitor to arch-rival Harley-Davidson’s Road King. Impressively, the Springfield is bigger, slicker, flashier and better to ride – if more expensive

Yamaha is developing a range of yard-built, retro-inspired rides under the ‘Faster Sons’ banner, and the XSR700 is the first model to emerge from this model series

Ducati Hypermotard Super Moto (2007 - ) review

This supermoto-style V-twin funster was originally launched in 2007 as an 1100, evolving into 796 and then 821 forms in 2013, before being replaced by the Euro4 compliant 939 in March 2016. Fortunately, the bike’s loony spirit has survived
Honda NC750X Review 3 years ago

Honda NC750X Commuter (2013 - ) review

Novice-friendly, economical and affordable adventure-style twin is brother to NC750S roadster and appeals to the ‘first big bike’ brigade. It also comes with the option of Honda’s pioneering ‘DCT’ auto gearbox.
Yamaha VMAX Review 3 years ago

Yamaha V-Max Cruiser (2008 - ) review

Inspired by the original 1985 V4 hotrod, the reborn, all-new VMAX is Yamaha USA at its best: big, brawny, classy and the ultimate musclebike for the ‘traffic lights GP’.
Triumph Street Triple Rx Review 3 years ago

Triumph Street Triple Rx Naked (2015 - ) review

Triumph’s Street Triple 675 was already the best middleweight naked, with the specced up ‘R’ version tastier yet. The ‘Rx’ is a special edition of that – what’s not to like?
BMW R1200R Review 3 years ago

BMW R1200R Naked (2015 - ) review

Latest version of BMW’s basic boxer roadster may look conservative but gets latest, pokey, liquid-cooled 125bhp engine, returns to conventional forks and has the latest electronic options. No super naked but a clever, capable roadster for the 21st century.
