£5k thriller alternatives

Liam Marsden, 10 April 2014 16:20

Yamaha's new MT-07 is an impressive new entry in to the budget middleweight category and at £5199 it's an absolute bargain. The MT-07 is a brilliant bike in its own right thanks to a punchy parallel twin engine pumping out 74bhp and weighing just 179kg, but we reckon you can have just as much, if not more fun for a ...

Adam Child, 19 March 2012 15:49

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 ...
