Helmet review: Arai Chaser

Arai Chaser, £199Miles covered/time: 7000/15 months What’s good: I never thought I’d be able to give my helmet a review beyond its comfort, quality and looks (all of which I liked a lot).

Would you buy a hyper-scooter?

It might be the first big scooter ever to catch your attention – and then only for an instant, because you thought it was a melted RSV4 – but the new Aprilia SRV850 begs the question: would you?

Honda's new 700cc naked: how good is it going to be?

Honda's kicking the ball into the biggest open goal it can find launching a 77mpg 700cc parallel twin super scooter at the height of fuel price paranoia.
