Dan Aspel, 25 August 2011 09:39

This is the last British-built Brough Superior, and potentially the last example of what was once the most desirable marque in motorcycling.

Staff bikes: KTM Duke 125 - Duke to the Alps

Dan Aspel, 19 August 2011 15:22

This July I rode from Oundle (Cambridgeshire), to Interlaken (Switzerland) and back on my 125 Duke. The 2,000 mile, six-day route took me across country lanes, motorways, city streets, alpine passes and grassy fields, which the tiny KTM managed with aplomb. This – of course – is nothing new. Plenty of low-capacity bikes head off on high mileage odysseys every ...

Sheep in Wolf's clothing

Dan Aspel, 29 July 2011 13:16

Sym's latest offering, the Wolf 125, looks familiar and that's entirely deliberate. The 'mini Honda CB1000R' (if you don't believe me compare the headlamp cowl, wheel design and seat) is the Taiwanese manufacturer's latest attempt to show how its style and quality is now a match for the best from Europe and Japan - and at first glance the Wolf, or Sb125Ni ...
