There wasn’t much wrong with the old 125 Duke, but KTM has improved it anyway with new styling, frame, suspension, posh clocks, and an LED headlamp that keep it ahead of the pack.

The old 675cc Street Triple was already by far the best bike in the middleweight super naked class. This all-new version, which comes in three different main variants, is better is every way.

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.

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.

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.

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.
