What else is there to say when faced with this combination of all good things that is the £5500 QTvan mobility scooter caravan? We don't know how this has passed us by until the very evening before the Royal wedding, for which it is being marketed. Sorry.

You bought their kitchens. Will you buy their bikes?

Guy Procter, 28 April 2011 12:13

The Ikea incursion has seen the Swedish way of life occupy our homes and give us undreamt-of storage options. Now they’re after your garage, as long defunct brand Swedish brand Ockelbo ponders a revival. Former snowmobile-maker Ockelbo has been helped by a group of students from the Umeå Institute of Design, who’ve created a range of concept bikes aimed at ...

Tuono V4R too ugly? French to the rescue!

Guy Procter, 27 April 2011 17:26

Fabulous new Aprilia Tuono V4R too ugly for you? Here come the French, with what they hope is the answer - a modified RSV4, dubbed the V4 Street. Arriving just after the launch of the Tuono V4R the V4 Street would be the perfect riposte, if its prolapsed air intakes and hat-wearing headlight didn’t achieve the opposite of what was ...

'Handling of a race bike, comfort of a street bike' - Motus MST-01 on track

Guy Procter, 26 April 2011 09:49

Of course you¹d expect to hear that in a promotional video, but it¹s an Ohlins technician talking, even if he couches his comments in the bubblewrap of 'This is the beginning...

Guy Procter, 21 April 2011 16:48

ABS will be standard on all BMWs sold in America from 2012, the firm's US bosses have announced.

KTM 125 Duke - world's coolest 125 or what?

Guy Procter, 21 April 2011 16:35

Great behind-the-scenes video for some of the promos for KTM’s new 125 Duke. Has a bike firm ever made an eighth-litre bike look so damn good?

New Yamaha YZF-R15: no compromise on the hugger

Guy Procter, 21 April 2011 15:31

New Yamaha? In this economic climate? And a ‘super sport urban bike’ at that? Yep, you read it right (Looking for a 125? Find a Yamaha YZF-R125 for sale). Unfortunately, the svelte new R6-alike 150cc machine isn’t destined for a showroom near you, unless you live in Pune, Hyderabad or Mumbai.
