Way back in the early 90’s the Superbike was re-born. Honda blew the rest of the world out the water with this Fireblade type creation.

So last year BMW updated their standard R1200GS with a new, more powerful version that featured electronically adjustable suspension, sophisticated on and off road traction control and ABS and edgy styling that rattled a few old boys’ cages.

The BMW S1000RR has been with us for three years now, but when it was launched in 2010 it marked a new era in the Sportsbike market.

New Firestorm

Posted: Thursday 18 July 2013 at 12:06 PM / Bike News & Reviews

  Well it has a Firestorm engine anyway. Honda has gone mad and made a 109BHP lawn mower, known as the Mean Mower; with a mixture of parts, from a Morris Minor steering rack to a set wheels from an ATV, it’s a bit of a parts special, but that’s not say it’s rubbish. A […]

Moto Morini Granpasso

Posted: Friday 03 May 2013 at 13:39 PM / Bike News & Reviews

The English translation of ‘gran passo’, according to my dodgy online translator, is ‘big step’ That seems appropriate enough, because it’s certainly a big step up onto the Morini’s 820mm-high seat. Yes, this is a lanky machine, but don’t worry if you’re a vertically challenged, as there’s a lower-seat option on the way, we’re told… […]
