Video: S1000RR faster than an M3 even in the wet

Guy Procter, 03 May 2011 17:00

BMW's M3 saloon is lame, according to a shock video admission by the firm itself. It’s released this video of its ‘fastest’ four-wheeler racing its fastest bike in what we can only interpret as a farewell to the car-making business.

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.

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? And has anyone pulled off such a phenomenal piss-take on the motorcycling 'straight' world than KTM is by putting this stuff put, while its CEO Pierer presides over ACEM, the European representative of motorcycle ...

Guy Procter, 20 April 2010 14:31

Ducati has rightly got highly excited by the near-instant colour-changing capabilities of its new Monsters, and the new 796 heralds the launch of a new set of tasty ‘logomania’ panels. Except, nobody appears to have told designers to bear in mind the 796 has a red frame. Just a red frame. Only red. Which has led to some eye-watering children-discover-mummy’s-makeup ...
