BMW R1200GS Adventure (2014-current)

£12,600

1170cc, 125bhp, 135mph, Insurance group

BMW has made the new R1200GS Adventure more comfortable, easier to ride and even more accomplished. It might be more refined and luxurious than ever but crucially it’s still the ultimate go-anywhere tourer and will comfortably hoover-up miles of tarmac, mud and whatever else you decide to throw at it. You might not literally be able to ride over water, ...

KTM 1290 Super Duke (2013-current)

£13,499

1301cc, 160bhp, 159mph, Insurance group 17

It’s a massive leap forward over the old Super Duke which was far from a bad bike. The new 1.3 litre KTM has arm-ripping power, the best mid-range and roll on speed figures we’ve ever tested and is the most powerful naked bike on the market. It also has a flip side. It’s relatively light, easy to ride and perfectly ...

Honda Fireblade SP (2014-current)

£14,999

1000cc, 178bhp, 175mph, Insurance group 17

For the first time in 14 years, Honda is offering a higher-spec version of their trusty Fireblade. The Fireblade SP has a blueprinted engine, Ohlins suspension, Brembo monobloc brakes and Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP trackday tyres. Underneath the glitz, the SP is based on the updated 2014-model Fireblade, which has a revised riding position, a taller screen, revised frame flex ...

Suzuki GSX-R1000 (2012-current)

£10,999

999cc, 182bhp, 186mph, Insurance group 17

The now old GSX-R was an exceptional bike, winning AMA and world endurance titles and narrowly missing out on a BSB title. Suzuki have simply improved the weak points, namely better brakes, more midrange, lighter handling with a few cosmetic tweaks, which in the end produces an exceptional road bike with real world manners. It may lack sophisticated traction control ...

Honda VFR1200X Crosstourer (2012-current)

£12,399

1237cc, 127bhp, 131mph, Insurance group 17

The surprise with the Crosstourer is two-fold: first that the 1200 V4 powertrain works so well in an adventure bike package (it already seems so familiar and ‘right’ to me it seems like it’s been around for years) and second that it genuinely brings a new and tempting dimension – namely V4 performance and sophisticated automatic transmission – to the ...

Ducati Streetfighter (2009-2012)

£12,095

1099cc, 155bhp, 155mph, Insurance group 17

It might not have the traction control, Ohlins suspension and Marchesini wheels of the more expensive ‘S’, but this base-model Streetfighter, complete with its retuned 1098 superbike engine, is still one hell of a machine and a better value package. Super naked machines like these make more sense on the roads than small, uncomfortable race replicas. The Ducati combines high ...

BMW S1000RR (2009-2011)

£13,735

999cc, 190bhp, mph, Insurance group 17

BMW’s S1000RR is the German company’s first venture into modern superbike territory and what a serious effort it is. Although it shares similar technology to the competition (GSX-R1000, Fireblade, ZX-10R etc) of dohc, 16-valves, stacked gearbox and so on, the engine delivers a mighty class leading claimed 190bhp at the back wheel. Add a good gearbox, impressive fuel injection and ...

Honda VFR1200F (2010-2011)

£12,325

1237cc, 160bhp, mph, Insurance group

The new VFR is a good bike – but it’s not a great one. And after all the hype and expectation (Honda themselves are pumping it up as “the Ultimate Road Sports Motorcycle” and it’s simply not) that is not good enough.Logically, to justify its almost £12K tag, the new VFR should offer abilities and specification head and shoulders above ...

Kawasaki GTR1400 (2007-2009)

£10,995

1352cc, 139bhp, 151mph, Insurance group 17

The Kawasaki GTR1400 is the long-awaited, long-rumoured flagship sports tourer based on the powerhouse ZZ-R1400 – and it’s been worth the wait. The GTR1400 is a classy, smooth and potent bit of kit, delivering a magic carpet ride across continents better than virtually anything else/ It may lack the proven reputation and long options list of BMW but in virtually ...

Ducati 1098 (2007-2011)

£11,250

1099cc, 160bhp, 180mph, Insurance group 17

This is the Ducati motorcycle we’ve been waiting for since the original Ducati 916. It’s a Ducati motorcycle in the truest form. Blood red, stunning to look at and absolutely pure in its purpose. It’s been a long time coming but it finally looks like Ducati has built a sports bike that can run with the best. The Ducati 1098 finally stands for ...
