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.

Aprilia SX125 Super Moto (2018- ) review

New learner supermoto based on RS125 mechanicals shows Italian teenie exotica-maker Aprilia at its best: it's cool, fun, well-equipped and a doddle to ride - and it's not even that expensive.

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.
Honda X-ADV Scooter Review 1 year ago

Honda X-ADV Scooter (2017 - ) review

Slightly bonkers half-scooter, half-adventure bike hybrid is a bold, welcome addition and actually blends practicality and fun. A scooter like no other and brilliantly executed, but it is 10 grand…

Suzuki SV650X Naked (2018 - ) review

Humble but appealing and affordable SV650 roadster V-twin gets a half-hearted retro/café racer makeover yet it somehow adds up to an appealing, affordable and fun bike.
Yamaha Tracer 900 GT Sports Tourer Review 2 years ago

Yamaha Tracer 900 GT Sports Tourer (2018 - ) GT review

The original Tracer 900 was a great bike, a faired, more long-legged version of the brilliant MT-09 roadster, now for 2018 it's improved with revised bodywork and seating while this top spec GT version, with panniers, adjustable suspension and more is even better yet.

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 Naked (2011 - ) 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 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 (2015 - ) 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.
