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

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 1260S Pikes Peak 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.

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.

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.

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.

Top 5 Sub-600cc sports bikes

Don't believe everything you may have heard about the so-called demise of sports bikes. While it's true that the once unrivalled popularity of four-cylinder, 600cc 'supersport' machines such as Honda's CBR600RR and Suzuki's GSX-R600, is a long way from what it used to be, on the other hand there's now more 'sub-600cc' sports bikes available than ever.

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.

Top 5 commuter bikes

For most, motorcycles are a passion, a leisure pursuit or a weekend toy. But that ignores the fact that for others they're also (or even only) a brilliant and effective form of transport. Powered two-wheelers were created in the first place, after all, to get from A to B quickly, efficiently and affordably. Only afterwards did people start racing them!

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.

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.

Top 5 quads/ATVs

Quad bikes may usually only be legal off-road - although there are some exceptions to this - but they remain hugely popular leisure and utility vehicles thanks to their go-anywhere, rugged style, four-wheeled stability and security yet motorcycle-style riding position and fun appeal.

Top 5 'Maxi' scooters

Maxi' or 'super' scooters, as they're sometimes called, are an increasingly popular modern phenomena - larger engined, luxury scooters that, while still easy (ish) around town and with all the practicality (if not more) of traditional scooters (being easy to ride around town, relatively clean and with plenty of luggage space) also have the virtue of being capable of motorway speeds for longer distance commuting.

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.

Honda unviels electric and hybrid versions of best-selling PCX scooter

While it’s true that the utopian dream of electric-powered scooters and motorcycles is still some way off, despite repeated efforts by various manufacturers and the glamour of the likes of the TT Zero race, there are signs that a watershed moment might be approaching – from no less than Honda themselves.

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.

Motorcycle terminology explained

Interested into getting on the road on two wheels but confused and alienated by all the jargon? Unsure as to what a ‘belly pan’ or ‘tail tidy’ is, and what you do with them? Baffled as to whether you need a ‘Sissy bar’ or a ‘Hugger’? Well, worry no more.

Harley-Davidson Sport Glide (2018 - ) review
