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 1260 Adventure (2017 - ) 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.

Three amazing three-wheelers

If Yamaha and Piaggio are to be believed, three is the new two – three wheels that is. With Yamaha’s launch of its radical, leaning three-wheeler based on MT-09 mechanicals this year, the oddly-named Niken, not to mention the continuing success of Italian scooter specialist Piaggio’s leaning three-wheel scooter family – the MP3s – is it time to, at last, take three-wheelers seriously?

Top 5 electric motorcycles and scooters

Although electric cars or hybrids such as Tesla’s Model S, the omnipresent Toyota Prius, Renault’s Zoe or even the Nissan Leaf are becoming an increasingly common sight on our roads, their two-wheeled equivalent is lagging somewhat behind – although that’s now starting to change.

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.

CCM Spitfire Review 1 year ago

CCM Spitfire (2018-) review

Historic British cottage bike builder CCM has grabbed the headlines with its new Spitfire by responding to the fashion for retro-influenced café racer/scrambler fun bikes better than almost anyone. Versatile, practical or even sensible transport the Spitfire may not be, but as a cool, fun, city bike not much else comes close.
