2012 Aprilia Dorsoduro ridden

Aprilia’s revised exotic Dorsoduro 1200 has lost weight, gained some Italian ponies and now has a three-way traction control as standard. If you thought the Supermoto scene was drying up you’d be wrong. Aprilia are seven times world supermoto champions, and the Dorsoduro has been a success story since its launch in 750 format back in 2008. It’s Aprilia’s third best-selling ...

BMW R1200GS Rallye first ride

It's been a long time coming, but if any bike's deserving of a commemorative special edition model surely it's the BMW R1200GS. The class-defning German adventure bike has been a market leader throughout all its guises since the original and radical-for-the-time R80G/S of 1980. To celebrate that, and no doubt to encourage more sales of the current, ageing version before ...

2012 KTM 990 Adventure first ride

If this KTM Adventure 990 looks familiar then that’s entirely deliberate – but this is no limited edition ‘Dakar’ version, as debuted last Spring, nor the full-blown ‘R’ version – it’s the standard 2012 Adventure which, like its R brother, boasts a host of modifications and improvements for this year, before an all-new model is expected in 2014. In a ...

Alpinestars Koln Drystar Jacket

Alpinestars Koln Drystar Jacket, £249.99 Miles covered/time: 4500/two months What’s good: I’ve experienced some of the worst winter weather imaginable and the Drystar jacket has remained 100% waterproof, no leakage around the zip even – very impressive. There’s a double zip at the front that repels cold windblast, and overall I’m really impressed by this stylish winter jacket. All the ...

Kawasaki Versys 1000 delivers more for your money

So does a four-cylinder adventure bike make any sense? On the strength of our world first ride of Kawasaki’s pioneering, Z1000-based Versys 1000, the answer is ‘Yes’… and ‘No’… The Versys 1000 has a superbly smooth and tractable engine, class-leading traction control, all-day comfort, and is the cheapest bike in its class. But its looks are controversial and I was ...

Alpinestars Jet Road Gore-Tex

Alpinestars Jet Road Gore-Tex glove, £99.95Miles covered/time: 4500/two months What’s good: Stylish winter gloves – who would have thought it? And they are 100% waterproof, too!

Rieju MRT 125LC Pro SM: Hottest ever learner supermoto

Rieju say this new Yamaha-powered 125 is the ultimate Supermoto 125, and have even given it the code name 'Duke Killer', referring to KTM's new 125 Duke. In terms of performance, Rieju have a point. The SM is a riot to ride and exceeds the KTM in almost every performance category. But it's considerably less refined than the 125 Duke, ...

Fully updated Kawasaki ER-6n sets new standard

When we learnt that Kawasaki wasn't just giving its popular ER6 range a slight update for 2012 but was almost completely revising them, first we wondered if it was strictly necessary. After all, both ERs (n for naked, f for faired) were already among the best middle-weight twins. Then, on seeing the bikes and realising how similar they looked to ...

Ducati 848 Challenge blog: Silverstone

I couldn’t turn down racing in the 848 Challenge at Silverstone in front of packed BSB crowd but it was a baptism of fire, thrown in at the deep end learning a new track and new bike, but great fun. First practice didn’t really go to plan, I wasn’t clicking with the 848 and was still learning the huge 3.6 ...
