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 ...

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 ...

Kawasaki J300SE-ABS (2014-current)

£4,499

299cc, 27bhp, 90mph, Insurance group

The J300 is an excellent entry into the competitive scooter market and shows the firm is really serious about the market. It's sits perfectly between lighter 125cc scooters and much larger and heavier maxi scoots, combining a good spread of power with good, easy handling.

Ducati Hypermotard (2013-current)

£9,695

821cc, 110bhp, 125mph, Insurance group 17

Replacing the original air-cooled 1100 and 796 versions, this second-generation Hypermotard has an 8v, liquid-cooled motor, a more forgiving riding position, ABS, traction control and electronic riding modes. Ducati are hoping these changes will broaden the appeal of their bad boy take on the supermoto. There are a few minor niggles, like a built-in blind spot in the mirrors and ...

Harley-Davidson FLS Softail Slim (2012-current)

£14,795

1690cc, 110bhp, 112mph, Insurance group 15

The Slim is essentially a standard Softail (ie a big twin with hidden rear shocks for that ‘hardtail’ look) but given (as seems to be repeatedly fashionable with cruisers from all manufacturers at the moment) the minimalist, ‘50s ‘bobber’/hot rod look. The difference here, though, is the ‘Slim’ bit. Harley’s view was that its existing Softails had become ever bigger ...

Vespa GTS125 (2007-current)

£3,549

124cc, 15bhp, 65mph, Insurance group 4

You get all the style and cool of an original Vespa, wrapped up in a package with modern reliability and running gear. If you're commute is primarily on busy city roads the engine and handling are spot on. But the GTS struggles out on the open road.

Piaggio MP3 Yourban 300ie LT (2011 - current)

£5,699

278cc, 22.8bhp, 70mph, Insurance group

The Yourban is not cheap, but it is aimed at those with either no desire or experience of two wheels as it can be ridden on a car licence, so the sure-footed, reassuring and unintimidating Yourban may well be worth the premium over conventional scooters.

Yamaha BW’s 125 (2010-current)

£2,799

125cc, 8.9bhp, 65mph, Insurance group 5

The BW’s 125 is an off-road inspired scoot that goes nicely and looks even nicer - rugged styling marks it out as a small scoot aimed at blokes. At £2,499 it’s not the cheapest 125 scooter on the market, but nice detailing and decent performance help to justify the price.

Suzuki Burgman 125 (2002-2012)

£3,465

125cc, 12bhp, 65mph, Insurance group 5

If you want the comfort and practicality of a maxi-scooter but you’re limited to 125cc, the well-spec’d Burgman is a safe choice. It’s not quite up to a motorway commute, but for city use it’s a classy ride with more luggage space than you’ll know what to do with.

KTM 690 Duke R (2010-2011)

£8,899

690cc, 71.4bhp, 112mph, Insurance group 11

Even though the bike tested was a pre-production unit – virtually finished bar the paintwork and decals – this bigger capacity 690 Duke is altogether a different machine than non-R model 690 Duke (654cc). The extra 36cc (KTM won’t confirm this figure until after official model launch, mid Nov ’09) of the new R-model with carbonfibre front mudguard and revised ...
