Kawasaki ER-6f: long-term test report

Winter’s on the way – so I’ve treated my Kawasaki ER-6f to a new screen in a bid to gain some extra weather protection.

Yamaha MT-07 Long term test report

The Yamaha MT-07 is fast-approaching 4000 miles and so far so good. The little twin has been a barrel of laughs this year, it's not missed a beat and the finish is still strong. It's handled everything that's been thrown at it. And quite a lot has been thrown at it. Daily commutes up and down the A1, touring across ...

The SPecial One

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 ...
