Ariel Ace (2014-current)

£20,000

1237cc, 170bhp, 150mph, Insurance group 17

Ariel has more recently been known for producing quirky-looking space-framed Atom sports cars with fearsome power to weight ratios and superbike levels of acceleration. But now they’re back making bikes. The Ace is a modular concept, so you can have any style you want from the cruiser shown here, to a super naked. Build quality is superb, it comes with ...

Yamaha XVS1300 Custom (2014-current)

£8,999

1304cc, 72bhp, 110mph, Insurance group 12

Yamaha’s XVS1300 Custom off-the-peg chopper is a rebadged Yamaha Stryker, originally released in the US in 2011. It mixes ‘American Chopper’ styling with bomb-proof Yamaha build quality. Badge snobs might sneer at its lack of ‘Harleyness’ but it’s a capable machine and superb value for money.

Ducati 1199 Superleggera (2014)

£54,000

1198cc, 200bhp, 186mph, Insurance group 17

Based on the homologation-special Panigale R, the 200bhp Superleggera (‘super light’ in Italian) weighs just 155kg dry, or 166kg wet with no fuel, which is the same as the Bologna firm’s WSB racer. Ducati has created 200 shiny new parts for this most exclusive slice of exotica, including a magnesium frame and wheels, a carbon fibre seat unit, a bucket-full ...

Indian Scout (2014-current)

£10,395

1133cc, 100bhp, 120mph, Insurance group

A year on from the now Polaris-owned brand’s return with its new Chief, Indian has done it again with another all-new bike – the Scout. The company’s quoted aim with the Scout was to build the ‘best in class, mid-size American motorcycle’, or, as company boss Steve Menneto more succinctly puts it: “It’s our answer to the Sportster.” In the ...

Norton Domiracer (2014)

£26,000

961cc, 80bhp, 125mph, Insurance group

New Nortons don’t come along very often, especially ones with featherbed frames and looks like this. That is in enough in itself for the Domiracer to be considered special. The fact that it's 83% British with much of it (frame, tank, pipes, engine and final assembly) all done on site at Donington, is another big plus. Then there’s the look ...

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 ...

Yamaha XV950 (2013-current)

£7,199

942cc, 51bhp, 110mph, Insurance group 10

Like any proper bobber, Yamaha’s XV isn’t for the long, open road but is more suited to the urban dude. Yamaha has kept it relatively light, at 247kg, and a super-low seat height of 690mm makes it easy to control for virtually everyone. An abundance of torque delivers a fun, responsive ride and having suspension and brakes that work goes ...

Yamaha FJR1300A (2013-current)

£13,699

1298cc, 146bhp, 154mph, Insurance group 14

Often overlooked in favour of the new breed of adventure-style sports tourers, the new FJR is a fabulous piece of kit – fast, refined and fun. Although hugely competent and thoroughly desirable, the new FJR isn’t that different to the older model. But there again, that’s no bad thing as the out going bike is also excellent. Overall the new ...

Suzuki V-Strom 1000 (2014-current)

£9,999

1037cc, 100bhp, 140mph, Insurance group

The V-Strom is never going to electrify you with thrills. It’s not breathtakingly quick, but it is easy to ride and manageable, delivering loads of low and midrange grunt. You can throw it around with confidence and it’s backed up by excellent traction control and ABS. It’s also comfortable, natural, frugal and simple – yet still has neat touches like ...

Moto Guzzi California Touring 1400 (2013-current)

£16,132

1380cc, 95bhp, 130mph, Insurance group 13

The new California is a fabulous looking bike, it’s sophisticated and, dare I say it, sexy, too – it’s a successful modern twist on a classic design. In short it has that little something extra that Japanese, and even American, cruisers can’t match in standard form. What’s more, the big transverse V-twin has typical Guzzi traits, but is far smoother ...
