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, ...

Adam Child, 21 October 2011 11:29

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

Adam Child, 28 September 2011 12:30

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.

Which used superbike for under £5000?

Adam Child, 25 August 2011 12:55

With the advent of electronics and near-200bhp power outputs, it's easy to forget just how good the sports bikes of 2005 were. They had huge power - up to around 160bhp - yet were tractable in the midrange, were designed to accomodate regular-sized human beings and didn't electronically slap your wrist if you pulled a cheeky wheelie. The best bit ...

Adam Child, 25 August 2011 11:01

The imposing bulk of Kawasaki's new VN1700 Voyager Custom has just landed on UK soil, sending a shudder through the large touring cruiser market.

Benelli struggle on with style

Adam Child, 04 August 2011 15:42

Although Benelli hasn't gone the way of compatriots Moto Morini (which went into administration last year), there's no doubt it has been struggling, with model updates limited to minor revisions on a now ageing range of nakeds and sportsters based around the Pesaro-firm's charismatic three-cylinder engine. The new TNT R160 is the latest example of the breed. Effectively Benelli's only ...

Foggy and Whit ride again!

Adam Child, 27 July 2011 09:44

On the eve of the World Superbikes at Silverstone and with the mouthwatering, all-new Ducati 1199 in prospect, we reckoned there was no better time to look back at the benchmark bikes that gave the Bologna factory such huge success over the years on both road and track.
