  • SUZUKI DL1050 V-STROM XT (2020-2022)

    Overall owners' rating
    1 out of 5 (1/5)

    Gearbox broken within warranty and not honoured by Suzuki despite on time servicing by dealer and bike only uses for short commute. Now having to go to independent motor trade governing body to settle what the dealer has already proven.

  • SUZUKI GSX1400 (2001-2006)

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

    Classic style, big, powerful and ultra smooth. I've had 3 of the these monsters (2001,2004,2007) over the last 20 years and my last one I will never sell. I've owned many naked bikes including multiple XJR1300s, ZRX1200R, CB1000, CB1300, XS1100's ect. but the Suzi 14 is my favourite. Is it...

  • KAWASAKI VN1500 CLASSIC (1996-2004)

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

    I regard this bike quite a lot good to hit the road And not diff if compares to Hd, Midnight 1200c. Surely I had intruder/shadow 1100cc And Vn 1500 which plz me the most 😎 Brazil Rider

  • YAMAHA YZF1000 THUNDERACE (1996-2003)

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

    20 years of ownership has reinforced just how well engineered this bike was. Still looks clean and engine feels smooth and strong. Brakes are sharp and handles ok. Good Plugs and quality oil pays back in spades. TLC on the EXUP a must. Decent torque and relatively low 190kg weight makes for easy...

  • APRILIA SL1000 FALCO (1999-2005)

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

    A big hearted bike that oozes character and rewards focused riding. Bags of Torque and smooths 4K plus. Crisp brakes and tall but sharp handling - better on a 180 profile. A wired / solenoid mod to cure start spikes is a must. Clutch eats seals and blackens fluid- but easy to sort. Italian build...

  • KAWASAKI J300 (2014-on)

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

    Surprisingly nippy for a 300cc and it's weight. Top speed and acceleration is more than enough for around town and the motorway, unless you ride like an oik, then again if you do, you won't be buying this bike in the first place. Under seat storage is more than I've had on any bike and I've had...

  • HONDA CB500X (2022-2023)

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

    I've owned many of these over the years and ridden plenty of motorcycles. My last cb500 was 7 years older and I was surprised how much improved this model was. Absolute joy to take out. Commute into London is enjoyable but I really enjoy motorway trips up to the midlands as well as rides into the...

  • HONDA NSS300 FORZA (2018-2021)

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

    Hitting the big 60 mark (years, that is) and arthritic in fingers, knees and ankles, I wanted to downsize in terms of both power and weight - but finding something that has the right dimensions is virtually impossible within the Big Four manufacturers. I accepted the fact that I may have to adapt...
