Indian’s FTR1200 is flat-track inspired awesomeness

Posted: Monday 08 October 2018 at 06:38 AM / intermot

Ok, ok, we might be Superbike but we can’t not talk about Indian’s FTR1200. Chatter at Intermot was almost universally dominated by this bike so we’re saving the best of our Intermot coverage ’til last. Suzuki’s Katana? New Scrambler colours? Sure. A flat-track inspired upright naked with 120HP, more torque than a train, a chain […]

Triumph‘s uber-popular Street Twin range has sold by the bucket load (especially to new riders). So for 2019, the British marque has given the Street Twin and Street Scrambler a bit of a mid-cycle update to keep sales ticking along nicely. Both bikes in the 900cc range share an update to the engine – it’s […]

After taking a back seat to various smaller capacity bikes, at long last the Austrian lunatics at KTM have updated the Super Duke GT.

Yamaha updates MT series with new colour scheme for 2019

Posted: Wednesday 03 October 2018 at 05:45 AM / intermot

Yamaha’s uber successful MT series is getting a new colour scheme for 2019. Since its launch, the Japanese firm has shipped 175,000 of the MT-series bikes Europe alone which is absolutely crazy when you think about it. The MT-07 and MT-09 consistently find themselves atop sales charts in their respective categories, and it’s little wonder […]

The covers were pulled off this morning in Cologne. It’s official, the Suzuki Katana is back.

Aprilia Shiver 900 gets navigation and new colours for 2019

Posted: Sunday 30 September 2018 at 13:41 PM / intermot

With an updated Shiver 900 for 2019, Aprilia are on a roll for 2019 ahead of Intermot. The 900cc Shiver appeared two years ago to replace the 750cc version (co-incidentally the first bike I ever rode post passing my big test a decade ago…) but the problem with the Shiver is that, frankly, there are […]

2019 Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 Factory gets Ohlins semi-active suspension

Posted: Saturday 29 September 2018 at 17:55 PM / intermot

Aprilia’s 175BHP 1100cc Tuono V4 is probably firmly in Superbike’s top 3 bikes ever. It’s a complete psycho of a bike, and it’s unlike most other naked sports bikes because rather than being designed from the ground up to be a road bike (like, say, KTM’s 1290 Super Duke, or Triumph’s 1050 Speed Triple), it […]

Posted: Saturday 29 September 2018 at 09:11 AM / intermot

Ahead of Intermot, the wacky Italians from Noale have released news that the RSV4 RR is to get two new colour schemes for 2019. Both are matte on a black and grey base known as “Rivazza grey” and “Arrabbiata black”. Both have red wheels. Very nice, we thought, as we perused the photos that landed […]

Kawasaki reveal 2019 Ninja 125 and Z125 models

Posted: Saturday 15 September 2018 at 19:23 PM / intermot

Almost a year after announcing these two little beauties at EICMA 2017, Kawasaki have finally revealed them. So say hello to two brand new learner-legal models for 2019. It’s a bit of a “me too” effort, given most other Japanese manufacturers have got rival offerings (not to mention the billions of cheap Chinese copies) but […]
