Akrapovic Morsus: If Carlsberg built custom bikes...

Trevor Franklin, 27 December 2011 14:00

Factory customs don’t get any more ‘factory’ than this. Say hello to Morsus, a unique custom machine built for aftermarket exhaust giant Akrapovic. They commissioned specialists Dreamachine Motorcycles of Slovenia to build a bike to promote Akrapovics new range of custom exhausts. Morsus is the result. And what a result. It went from drawing to finished article in just two-and-a-half ...

New Honda Fireblade still on top after 20 years

Trevor Franklin, 03 December 2011 12:00

Honda’s legendary Fireblade is 20-years-old and while the weight, shape and engine capacity in fact everything about it has changed since Tadao Baba’s rule-changing 1992 original, the fact that Honda has retained the Fireblade moniker for its ultimate superbike proves just how important this model is to the Big H. Oh, and so does the impressive sales figure of 445,208 ...

Neck braces do work…

Trevor Franklin, 08 November 2011 15:55

Check out this video of a guy who crashed during a trackday at Barber Motorsports, USA. Now there’s braking and there’s braking, but braking to the point of breaking your bike and yourself is taking it a bit too far in our book. The end result is the rider walked away (albeit shakily). But the point is he might not have ...

Aprilia SR Max 300: Taken to the Max

Trevor Franklin, 07 October 2011 14:26

Aprilia’s new SR Max 300 fits neatly into the overcrowded maxi-scooter class, but with a less than subtle difference from its rivals – the Aprilia actually looks exciting to ride. With styling allegedly based on the RSV4 superbike – a little far-fetched, although the black/red colour scheme is eye-catching and the angular layout of the bike is striking – it ...

Husqvarna SMS4 125: Teenage kicks - Husky style

Trevor Franklin, 12 September 2011 14:12

While we await the arrival of the Nuda 900, Husqvarna's new F800-powered supermoto, two other equally important models from the now BMW-owned but Italian-based company have gone on sale. The SMS4 125 and TE125 are 124.45cc, four-stroke, learner-legal machines styled to mimic the company's off-road competition bikes. Both bikes are a big departure from the unrestricted 125cc two-strokes Husqvarna are ...

Lambretta returns! But it's made in Taiwan

Trevor Franklin, 01 September 2011 16:34

The new LN125 is the first scooter 'branded' Lambretta for decades. But while the name is synonymous with Italian style - and the new scoot is styled by an Italian - it's based on a Taiwanese-made Sym four-stroke. So while the LN125's silhouette harks back to the iconic two-stroke workhorse of the '60s and '70s, any similarity ends there. And ...

Harley-Davidson Switchback new for 2012

Trevor Franklin, 21 July 2011 12:05

Harley-Davidson has just released details of its 2012 model range, which includes the new £13,499 Dyna Switchback – a custom convertible with removable hard panniers and screen. The idea is to provide two bikes from one chassis – a tasteful cruiser when naked and a competent ‘bagger’ with the two colour-matched panniers and screen in place. Harley claims both touring ...
