We ride the Ariel Ace at Goodwood

Michael Neeves, 09 July 2014 10:42

It’s hard to believe the Ariel Ace cruiser really is a new bike. It’s seemingly come out of nowhere, is made by a car firm, and yet it’s already better than many established production bikes.

Staff Blog: Thundersport Rockingham

Michael Neeves, 29 July 2013 10:45

  I haven’t had much of a chance to do anything of note with my Hyperstrada over the past week. But it did treat me to a glorious ride cross-country to Donington last Wednesday, where I instruct at the Ron Haslam Race School. The early morning journey there and late evening ride back was perfect, with twisty, empty B-roads, sunshine ...

The ultimate superbike test

Michael Neeves, 13 May 2013 10:42

These are ‘Top Trump’ superbikes – the kind of machines you’ll probably only ever see in pictures and rarely in the flesh. The new Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC, BMW HP4 Carbon, Ducati 1199R Panigale and MV Agusta F4RR are all about the big numbers: power, capacity, top speed, electronic rider aids and, of course, price. If you’re in the market ...
