  • HONDA VT125 SHADOW (1999-2007)

    MCN rating
    4 out of 5 (4/5)
    14 owners' rating
    4.7 out of 5 (4.7/5)

    The littlest Shadow looks the part, is beautifully finished, very reliable and is relatively gentle

  • KAWASAKI Z800 (2013-2018)

    MCN rating
    4 out of 5 (4/5)
    10 owners' rating
    4.4 out of 5 (4.4/5)

    We're genuinely shocked how good the Z800 is, given how uninspiring the old Z750 was

  • BMW R1200RT (2014-2019)

    MCN rating
    5 out of 5 (5/5)
    11 owners' rating
    4.7 out of 5 (4.7/5)

    Despite a 2014 recall glitch, arguably the best bike BM make. Light, sophisticated and astonishingly effective

  • KTM 690 DUKE (2016-on)

    MCN rating
    4 out of 5 (4/5)
    9 owners' rating
    4.4 out of 5 (4.4/5)

    The world’s most powerful single and a dream bike

    MCN rating
    4 out of 5 (4/5)
    40 owners' rating
    4.5 out of 5 (4.5/5)

    So successful it spawned a whole class – budget middleweight roadsters

    MCN rating
    4 out of 5 (4/5)

    4.3 out of 5 (4.3/5)

    A superb scooter, but there are cheaper options

  • SUZUKI DRZ400S (2001-2008)

    Overall owners' rating
    5 out of 5 (5/5)

    I have a dr650. Carburettor model. It has sat for 3 months at a time and it will start first time. Its ideal as a comuter bike and is happy in traffic and cruising at 120 kph. It will go up to 160kph . Its an affordable option to a german dual sport. And can actually go off road. Bad points.....

  • KAWASAKI ZX-10R (2006-2007)

    Overall owners' rating
    4 out of 5 (4/5)

    Use for track days only, great power and a great positive front wheel feeling.

  • HONDA CB500X (2019-on)

    Overall owners' rating
    5 out of 5 (5/5)

    My 8th bike, first one I’ve bought to commute in London. Always been outside of London in the past on sports bikes. So it’s Ulez compliant, and has incredible mpg. It updates on the dash constantly and suffice to say you will be saying really 81 mpg?! Really. Bike has a great finish, lots of extras...

  • SUZUKI GSX1300R HAYABUSA (1999-2007)

    Overall owners' rating
    4 out of 5 (4/5)

    I have owned my 'Busa for over 6 years.65k plus miles on her and still going like a scalded cat. 3 sets of tyres since I've had her, Yoshi Cans. Upgraded Front master cylinder to Brembo Radial, Goodridge Lines, wavy discs, Sintered pads, sorted front braking issues.

  • YAMAHA XJR1300 (1998-2014)

    Overall owners' rating
    5 out of 5 (5/5)

    What can I say about this bike, well I will never understand why they changed 4 into 2 to 4 in to one, it looks awful, and everyone will say the same it totally ruins the look of the bike it looks unbalanced from the back end, and the size of that muffler, looks rediculous, it totally spoils the...

  • BMW K1300R (2009-on)

    Overall owners' rating
    5 out of 5 (5/5)

    Amazing build quality, the only naked bike I really liked. 1300cc, oodles of power, really turns and breeze filtering traffic. Obviously fuel economy or kerb weight isn’t the reason you will buy this bike, but it’s so rare to find something in market and shaft driven, it will be a collectors item

  • TRIUMPH DAYTONA MOTO2 765 (2020-on)

    Overall owners' rating
    3 out of 5 (3/5)

    This bike is slick and exclusive, but as the original review here notes suffers odd fitment/refinement issues for a $20,000 machine. All the Japanese brand, Harley and Ducati do much much much better in this price range, which is stupid expensive for what it is. I find the engine boring and a bit of...
