Staff Blog: Welcome back CBR500

When the first Yamaha FZR600 came out back in the day (1990) I was all over it like a rash. The black and pink paintscheme may have been a little 'let's go disco' naff but these were the days of the Carl Fogarty crazy worm leathers! After that I owned one of the early Kawasaki ZX-6Rs and loved that too. I later...

Best bikes for under %XA35k: 2008-2009 Honda CBR600RR

What was it like then?Bad Honda. It was as if they%X92d axed Brucey from Strictly %X96 a national treasure tossed aside as Honda ditched the much-loved and long-running CBR600F for a new kind of CBR. One with a ruthless track focus and a painfully thin seat. The new-for-2003 CBR600RR was built around Honda%X92s latest obsession, mass centralisation, which placed every...

Used buying guide: Honda VFR

Since its launch in 1986, Honda%X92s legendary sports tourer has become an institution. With a formidable reputation for reliability, the VFR has stood the test of time. But it wasn%X92t always so. The VFR can trace its roots back to some pretty disastrous mid-1980s V4s. Believing the V4 produced the optimum power and torque, Honda launched a family of bikes that...

You Ask/You Answer: How can I improve acceleration?

"I'd like a bit more acceleration from my Honda CB1000R %X96 and I'm not really bothered about top speed (so long as it'll still cruise at 90mph). What's the best way to change the gearing %X96 bigger rear sprocket, or smaller front sprocket, or a mix of both? "Also, will I need a new chain, and will my speedo read incorrectly...

After last year's European Junior Cup race series used Kawasaki Ninja 250s, Honda has decided to give their own 250cc commuter a track makeover. While the standard Honda CBR250R isn't particularly exciting, it looks a lot better in race trim with a Honda TT Legends inspired paintscheme. Developed for the Japanese CBR250R Cup race series, the mini CBR also gets a...

Honda VFR1200: old vs new

Honda%X92s V4s have come a long way since those early, flawed, chain-driven cam 750s of the early %X9180s. That first VF750S led to the VF750F and on to the VF1000 in all its forms spawning junior siblings such as the VF400F and VF500F along the way. After that came the VFR dynasty which prospers to this day. And along side all...
