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 ...

Staff blog: Bad back stops play

I did my back in a couple of weeks ago so riding the Ducati Multistrada 1200 S Touring was put on hold while my life revolved around physiotherapy, 500mg Naproxen tablets twice a day, paracetamol every four hours, ice packs every two hours and then more physio.

Staff Blog: The magic carpet
