Yamaha MT-125 first ride

The new Yamaha MT-125 marks the third arrival in the MT family. The single-cylinder is technically a naked version of Yamaha’s refreshed-for-2014 YZF-R125 except with an upright riding position and street fighter design, taking its styling cues from its MT-09 and 07 siblings. So we have an already great bike, peppered with upgraded components, for less money than the faired ...

Video: MT-09 Group Test

At £6799, Yamaha's three-cylinder MT-09 promises super naked thrills and supersport speed, but at a budget commuter price. But how close is it really to any of them? To find out, we put it through a multi-disciplined test against typical examples of each, around town, down motorways, along backroads and even on track.)

KTM Freeride E first ride

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

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!

  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 ...

Special K: BMW K1300S Anniversary

When it comes to ‘special editions’, BMW pretty much leads the way. Although Ducati and Triumph, in particular, have their own successful lines of ‘specials’ (bikes like the Tricolore or Steve McQueen Bonnie spring to mind), while the UK importers of Suzuki, Kawasaki and Yamaha are increasingly producing ‘Touring’ or ‘Adventure’ Packs and suchlike for existing models, BMW’s ‘Triple Black’, ...

Staff Blog: I Love Wednesdays.....

  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. Along with a couple of mates and my hubby we planned a 300 miles round trip to a brilliant bike meet. Further to ...
