Honda CBR650F (2014-current)

£6,999

649cc, 86bhp, 145mph, Insurance group

Honda’s all-new, completely revitalised and reinvented CBR is a CBR worthy of the name. The original CBR was such as success simply because it was a good, affordable, all-round bike, with a touch of Honda class. Just as much is true of this newcomer. It’s not perfect – no bike is. The snob in me envies the adjustable forks of ...

Bimota BB3 (2014-current)

£28,000

999cc, 200bhp, 186mph, Insurance group 17

One of the lightest and most powerful bikes ever. But on the track it comes up a little short. The tyres aren't great and it really isn't worth the extra £10,000 over the 2014 S1000RR it shares so many parts with. It's a brave attempt for Bimota and looks fantastic but there a few rough edcges that are hard to ...

KTM RC390 (2014-current)

£4,999

373cc, 44bhp, 105mph, Insurance group 15

This is a bike for A2 licence holders to be excited about. Inspired by KTM’s Moto3 machine, you could say the RC 390 is the modern day RD350LC. With its punchy single-cylinder engine, steel trellis frame, ali swingarm and fat, sticky tyres, it has easy ton-up performance, lets you rail through corners like Jack Miller and is built with lots ...

Ducati 899 Panigale (2013-current)

£12,495

898cc, 148bhp, 170mph, Insurance group 17

A step forward from the old 848, now littered in rider aids like traction control, ABS, EBC (Engine brake Control) all as standard quick-shifter. The ergonomics are more rider friendly, it’s easier and more forgiving and it looks stunning mirroring the line of the original Panigale. But, more importantly, the 899’s quicker and lighter than the old bike, too. Despite ...

Kawasaki Ninja 300 (2012-current)

£4,799

296cc, 39bhp, 93mph, Insurance group

Kawasaki has hit the nail on the head with this bike. Finally the market has a practical, economical entry-level bike which is easy to ride and desirable. The firm says 40% of buyers will be under 24 years old, going on sales of the 250, and it’s this kind of grassroots support motorcycling needs. Kawasaki also says 22% of 250 ...

MV Agusta F3 800 (2013-current)

£11,499

798cc, 148bhp, 150mph, Insurance group 16

MV Agusta’s new 148bhp F3 800, boasts 20bhp more power than its F3 675 baby brother, a massive 30bhp more in the midrange and higher spec cycle parts such as Brembo Monobloc calipers. Yes, it’s more expensive, too, but the F3 800 is the most sorted, enjoyable and fun MV Agusta we’ve ridden in recent times, true exotica and far ...

MV Agusta F4 (2013-current)

£14,499

998cc, 195bhp, 185mph, Insurance group 17

With its new short-stroke engine, ride-by-wire throttle, frame and a host of clever electronic upgrades, this the F4’s biggest overhaul since MV turned their flagship superbike back from a 1078cc, into a 1000 in 2010. Like a well set-up race bike it carves through corners with minimal effort, making it the best-handling F4 ever. It’s also the first production bike ...

Rieju RS3 125 LC (2011-current)

£3,399

124cc, 15bhp, 81mph, Insurance group

On the surface the Rieju does enough to be considered ahead of bikes from more established brands like Honda – with a fast engine and extras like a quickshifter with the R version - but poor build quality and bad handling can’t be ignored.

MV Agusta F4 RR Corsacorta (2011-current)

£19,999

998cc, 201bhp, 186mph, Insurance group 17

It’s the most powerful and refined F4 MV Agusta has ever produced. Making a claimed 201bhp at the crank, it just pips the ZX-10R’s 200.1bhp crank figure to make the Italian beauty the most powerful 2011 road-going superbike. It has a new short-stroke engine (hence the Corsacorta tag) with an exhaust note to die for, traction control, Ohlins suspension, an ...

Aprilia RS4 125 (2011-current)

£4,471

124cc, 15bhp, 65mph, Insurance group

At £3999 OTR there are cheaper 125s but then none of those rivals have the same heritage or kudos. Despite making only 15bhp it’s great fun to ride - the fact the new four-stroke engine thrives on revs keeps the old RS spirit alive. It handles well, stops well, and most importantly looks the part. What more could a 17-year-old ...
