2017 Ducati Monster 797 – Full review.

Posted: March 25, 2017 at 2:49 pm   /  

After just making the flight to Nice by under 3 minutes thanks to London’s tubular network being as reliable as an unloved Mobylette, I arrived for the press launch of Ducati’s Monster 797 expecting an evening of convivial hospitality followed by a day’s riding in sunshine along The Corniches. Instead we dumped bags, slipped into […]

Triumph Street Scrambler – Full review with video.

Posted: March 3, 2017 at 11:20 am   /  

Right, I’ve set myself the goal of writing this entire launch report without once mentioning the words ‘heritage’, ‘retro’, ‘old school’ ‘hipster’ or Steve McQueen. I think I can do it and, more to the point, I think the Triumph Street Scrambler deserves more of your attention than to be immediately placed in the same […]

A standard S1000RR and a standard pre TC GSX-R 1000. Same rider, same track and same day.

Does traction control actually make you faster? GSX-R vs S1000RR

Posted: February 22, 2017 at 3:58 pm   /  

How much quicker does traction control make the average rider, if at all? Take one rider, a Suzuki GSX-R1000 and a BMW S1000RR, an empty track and let’s find out shall we? From the comfort of my couch, I like nothing more than watching factory racers strangling the throttles factory superbikes, usually at the point in […]

  A new Suzuki GSX-R1000 with 202hp? 2017 is winning already. 16 years after the first GSX-R1000 rocked our world, Suzuki once again has a GSX-R1000 ready to challenge for top superbike honours. We took to the fast turns of Phillip Island to see if the new bike could live up to the legacy of […]

2017 Red Bull Honda Fireblade WSB – Details and gallery

Posted: February 6, 2017 at 7:38 pm   /  

When a live stream is happening in Hangar7, you can expect a sugary rush of excitement. Nothing had us prepared for the in your face fizz of the 2017 Honda Fireblades that were unveiled there today though. Wearing full Red Bull warpaint, the new bikes look absolutely stunning. Nicky Hayden and Stefan Bradl can sleep […]

Triumph Street Cup – Full review with video.

Posted: January 30, 2017 at 2:33 pm   /  

You could be forgiven for passing off the Triumph Street Cup as a budget version of the Thruxton, but that’s not really the intention from Triumph, apparently. The Street Cup forms one of three strands of DNA in the Modern Classic range. Essentially, if it starts with the word ‘Street’ you’re looking at a bike […]

2017 Honda CBR1000 Fireblade – Initial thoughts

Posted: January 22, 2017 at 3:44 pm   /  

The 2017 Honda Fireblade. Even rolling the words around my mouth feels good. It’s been such a long time since we were treated to an all new Fireblade that I think I can be forgiven for getting a little excited at the notion of riding the new RR and SP versions this weekend at Portimao. […]
