0 Milwaukee-Eight: Harley’s new 107 and 114ci engines

Harley-Davidson’s new 1745cc and 1870cc Milwaukee-Eight 8-valve engines guarantee a future for traditionally styled V-twins, with more power and lower emissions. The new donk doesn’t look much different from the engines Harley riders are so unwilling to give up, but significant internal changes give them a reprieve from the ever-tighter…

0 Bike review: Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200 XCX

On a ridiculously sinuous gravel road near the old Palmer River goldfields, the Triumph Explorer 1200 was almost too much fun. It went hot into corners, hot through them and hot out of them, usually in long, controlled slides that I wished I could hold forever. One after another as…

0 CFMoto’s Kiska influence shines through

CFMoto is planting both feet firmly in the market with its new range of 400cc and 650cc models, which have benefited from a partnership with Kiska Design. Kiska has been instrumental in KTM’s models over recent years. As a result, the renewed styling of the naked NK models is striking…

0 Moto Guzzi MGX-21 Flying Fortress in production

Moto Guzzi says its bold new MGX-21 Flying Fortress is the cruiser to cross the future, a blend of Italian taste and American style. And given the brilliance of the California models from which the Flying Fortress comes, we reckon the new Guzzi will be a fantastic entry into the…

0 Bike review: Indian Springfield

The Springfield’s ride comfort is outstanding but this wasn’t my priority as I ploughed through a long sweeper at a speed that wasn’t quite as stately as the script called for. My attention was on the wonderful steering, which gave me the faith to ride out the Indian’s looseness while…

0 Bike review: Ducati XDiavel

There is only the XDiavel. Nothing else counts. Not if you want a cruiser that’ll rip the hearts out of all those pretenders that prance down boulevards telling the girls that 60, 80 or even 100 horsepower is tough. I make no bones of the fact I love lazy, inefficient,…

0 REVIEW: DUCATI MULTISTRADA ENDURO

The Multistrada Enduro is so extraordinarily good you’d think Ducati had Dakar-dominating heritage going back years, not all that Superbike-winning experience. A handful of factors have influenced the outstanding result of the Enduro’s development. First, Ducati’s highly advanced electronic technologies have all adapted well to an off-road role, with no…

0 Bike review: Harley Roadster

If I sounded a bit hard on the Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight in issue 123, it’s only because it wasn’t a Roadster. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the Forty-Eight and embraced its short, uncomfortable suspension and other compromises because its compromises were what make it such an endearing and focussed motorcycle.…

0 Review: Yamaha MT-03

Can a 300cc motorcycle really qualify as a Yamaha MT? The MT designation has variously stood for Monster Torque, Mighty Torque, Massive Torque and probably other interpretations of what should by now be an obvious theme. Torque. This is not torque as we know it in the 1600cc MT-01 that…
