Video: Kawasaki Ninja 300

EU laws change on 19 January replacing the 33bhp learner limit with 47bhp (and no more than 0.3bhp/kg), freeing up Kawasaki to make a more powerful entry-level sportsbike than its popular Ninja 250R. Though stopiing some way short of the new limits, the Ninja 300 promises to be a sporty, good-looking entry-level bike capable of high cruising speed and Kawasaki ...

Video: What is the new 600?

Ten years ago, speedfreaks were buying 600s in their thousands, runed on by their wallet-friendly mix of precision handling, insane engines and cutting-edge technology. But many have fallen out of love with these pocket rockets and are getting their kicks elsewhere - even the manufacturers seem to have given up. So what are the new 600s? Which bikes tick the ...

WK 650i: the first big bike from China

The Chinese motorcycle industry has been churning out big, big numbers for a long time – over 50% of the world’s motorcycles are built there after all. Until now, however, they’ve often been small capacity copies; scooters and learner bikes built for commuters yet dismissed by true enthusiasts as cheap and poor quality. But one ‘large number’ has eluded them ...

MV Agusta F3 fuelling problem fixed

The MV Agusta F3 was one of the most eagerly anticipated sports bikes in recent years, but when it was launched back in February it was a huge disappointment. Chronic fuelling problems and poor running blighted the Italian firm's new supersport rocket, putting it way behind the Japanese competition and most worryingly for them, its intended rival: the Triumph Daytona ...

Smart money superbikes - the best used examples

The 1000cc sports bike class has ripped in two and there are now two distinct camps. In the ‘extreme’ corner there’s the super-powerful, electronically-enhanced superbikes, like the Aprilia RSV4, BMW S1000RR, Ducati Panigale and Kawasaki ZX-10R. Over in the other is the new Fireblade, GSX-R1000 and R1. These much-loved Japanese machines are the old guard and have all been worthy ...

Honda VFR1200: old vs new

Honda’s V4s have come a long way since those early, flawed, chain-driven cam 750s of the early ‘80s. That first VF750S led to the VF750F and on to the VF1000 in all its forms spawning junior siblings such as the VF400F and VF500F along the way. After that came the VFR dynasty which prospers to this day. And along side ...
