The SPecial One

Jon Urry, 14 September 2014 09:30

Honda’s SP-1, or the VTR1000 SP-1 RC51 to give it its proper name, will always hold a very special place in motorcycle history. This is a bike born out of necessity – not to mention a considerable degree of frustration… Despite having HRC’s full weight behind it, the exotic RC45 was a flop both on the track and in showrooms ...

KTM Freeride E first ride

Andy Downes, 28 December 2013 09:30

It’s safe to say that, so far, sales of electric motorcycles in any class have been almost inconsequentially small. But, on the basis of a short test on a pre-production KTM Freeride E motocross bike, it’s equally clear that this could simply be because the right bikes haven’t been available to buy – yet. The threats to off-road riding have ...

Video: Kawasaki Z1000 first ride

MCN, 28 November 2013 07:30

The Z1000 has been the most serious Japanese 'super naked' since 2003, and Kawasaki have determinedly reinvented it ever since. For 2014, it's re-styled and eschews electronics in favour of refinement, quality and value. It's a bold move and could be a clever one. brightcove.createExperiences();

Staff Blog: Well, that’ll be autumn then!

Alison Silcox, 03 October 2013 09:33

  Riding in this morning I’ve had to give in and fully kit up in cordura. Looking out of the bedroom window at 7.30 it was really quite murky and living in the middle of a housing estate if it’s murky outside our house I know it’s going to be worse heading towards the A1. I knew it was time ...

Staff Blog: I Love Wednesdays.....

Alison Silcox, 18 July 2013 08:16

  The lads in the office are bored stiff of hearing me say it but I’m going to say it again, I don’t work Wednesdays and what better way to spend the day than riding the Yamaha Fazer8.

Lexmoto ZSX125 first ride

Phil West, 03 July 2013 08:00

Lexmoto’s new ZSX125 is a good indicator of how far – and fast – the much-maligned Chinese motorcycle industry has come in recent years, being not just as keenly priced as ever but also now being stylish and with an up-to-date spec. So, is it finally time to take ‘Made in China’ motorcycles seriously?... This bike is much more than ...
