KTM Freeride E first ride

It’s safe to say that, so far, sales of electric motorcycles in any class have been almost inconsequentially small.

Agility Motors Saietta R first ride

With the ‘throttle’ wide open through a corner as the rear tyre scrabbles for grip, there is no exhaust roar. The unlikely combination of near-silent running and high performance is almost enough to make you miss the apex. The Agility Motors Saietta R, one of the most advanced electric bikes available – and yours for a salty £16,770 – is ...

Video: Kawasaki Z1000 first ride

The Z1000 has been the most serious Japanese 'super naked' since 2003, and Kawasaki have determinedly reinvented it ever since. For 2014, it's re-styled and eschews electronics in favour of refinement, quality and value. It's a bold move and could be a clever one. brightcove.createExperiences();
