Honda GL1800 Goldwing Tourer (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 800 Adventure (2010 - ) 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 Naked (2018 - ) 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 3 years 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.
Fireblade Review 3 years ago

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 3 years 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 1290 Super Duke R Naked (2013 - ) 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 1050 Naked (2015 - ) 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 Naked (2011 - ) 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 765 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.

Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled (2017 - ) review

Ducati has been pushing the retro roadster fashion more than most manufacturers with its 803cc V-twin Scrambler family. With the Desert Sled, they finally appeal to more experienced riders.

Suzuki GSXR1000R Super Sports (2017 - ) review

We’ve been waiting a long time for an all-new, competitive GSX-R1000, but this top-spec R version, along with its more basic and affordable standard sibling, is more than worth the wait. It’s powerful, agile, bristling with the latest electronics, good value and already a TT winner.

Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 Factory Super Sports (2017 - ) review

The naked, roadster version of Aprilia’s WSB-winning RSV4 superbike has always been up there with the very best super nakeds, especially since its enlargement from 1000 to 1100cc. Now, for 2017, its chassis, engine and electronics are enhanced even further. A brilliant road sportster.

BMW K1600GT Tourer (2011 - ) review

Astonishing, straight-six, luxury tourer has been enhanced even further for 2017, with uprated bodywork and clocks, and a new Euro4-compliant engine, and now comes with electronic suspension as standard.

Lexmoto Echo Moped (2015 - ) review

At the introductory end of the A1 class, 50cc scooter market, the best bikes can sometimes be simply the most accessible or affordable ones, as long as they're still functional and desirable. The Lexmoto Echo 50 scores strongly on both counts, hence its huge popularity.

Kawasaki Z650 Roadster/Sports (2017 - ) review

Don’t be distracted by the revived, historic name, this new Z650 is an updated successor to the ER-6n middleweight twin. That bike – novice-friendly, perky and affordable – was already a class-leader. This, with a new lighter chassis, boosted engine and improved looks, is better still.
