2017 Kawasaki Z900 Review 3 years ago

Kawasaki Z900 Naked (2017 - ) review

The new Z900 revives its historic name, but the bike can’t match the ‘70s original’s significance. Effectively a Z800 replacement, it’s a junior Z1000, without that bike’s electronics. While it’s a decent option if you want an affordable Japanese four, it can’t match Triumph’s latest Street Triple.
2017 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 Review 3 years ago

Suzuki V-Strom 1000 Adventure (2017) review

Suzuki’s slightly budget adventure offering was reintroduced in 2014 with a reworked version of the old TL1000 V-twin. It was worthy, rather than thrilling. This year brings a few tweaks to meet Euro4, and while it’s better, it’s not better by much.

Suzuki V-Strom 650 Adventure (2015 - 2018) review

The class-defining V-Strom may have been the original and best midi-adventure bike since 2004, but despite a 2011 facelift, it was overdue an update. This restyle with extra goodies delivers, but doesn’t leap ahead.
2017 Kawasaki Ninja 650 Review 3 years ago

Kawasaki Ninja 650 Sports Tourer (2017 - ) review

The revamped, renamed version of the old ER-6f is much more than just a facelift of the popular faired middleweight twin: it’s lighter, more potent and better equipped, too. As a sporty first middleweight, it’s one of the best.

2016 Yamaha XSR900 roadster/retro Review 3 years ago

Yamaha XSR900 Roadster/Retro (2016 - ) review

Effectively Yamaha’s universally-acclaimed and perky three-cylinder roadster, the MT-09, but re-styled with a more fashionable, retro-inspired look. Like the MT, the XSR has an awful lot going for it, but it’s debatable whether it’s worth the £500 premium.
