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.

Aprilia RS 125 Sports (2017 - ) review

The four-stroke successor to the legendary two-stroke learner sportster may now play to a different soundtrack, but it remains a mini-superbike and the ultimate learner dream bike.

Aprilia Tuono 125 Roadster (2017 - ) review

The naked, roadster version of Aprilia’s exotic RS 125 sportster is back and better than ever. With classy, RS 125 running gear, a useful, four-stroke powertrain, and Tuono 1000 styling, A1-compliant roadsters don’t get much more appealing.

KTM 390 Duke Naked (2017) review

Funky, lightweight, supermoto-inspired, single-cylinder roadster is fresh, fun and so easy to ride it was already one of the most appealing A2 licence compliant machines. Updates for 2017, however, make it even better yet…

Honda CB650F Roadster (2017 - ) review

The unfaired CBR650F replaced the Hornet in 2014, and this mild update gives the budget but fun middleweight four some welcome extra oomph and attitude.
2017 KTM 1290 S Super Adventure Review 3 years ago

KTM 1290 Super Adventure Super Adventure (2014 - ) review

KTM’s flagship adventure bike now comes in three 1290 variants: T touring, R off-road, and this S road-biased all-rounder. With 160bhp and cutting edge electronics, adventure bikes have never been so flash, or fast.

Honda CB1100 Naked (2017- ) review

Honda’s take on the retro roadster, an all-new, air-cooled, DOHC-four inspired by past CBs, was a beautiful creation, but criticised for being too soft and bland. This hefty revision, plus a hotter, new RS version, changes that…
2017 Honda CBR650F Review 3 years ago

Honda CBR650F Super Sports (2017 - ) review

Just when you thought affordable, sporty, 600-class all-rounders were a thing of the past, along comes this. It’s not flash or fancy, but the CBR650F pretty much does it all, and for under £7,000.
