0 MV Agusta Turismo Veloce Lusso review

In a hurry to get over the horizon? MV has created one very sporty tourer to help get you there I was sitting at the red light, staring intently at the gear-position indicator in the top-left of the busy dash, as my left foot played hide-and-seek with neutral. Frustratingly, and…

0 Fast Blast: Benelli TnT 125

Benelli responds to the emerging ‘compact’ market with more features, more power and a lower price tag  When Honda came out with the Honda Grom last year, it left a lot of us scratching our heads. What is this thing? We thought. It’s not quite a monkey bike, but its…

0 Indian Chief Vintage review

Swinging through the bends in the hills north-east of home in sunny Melbourne, early morning, with the easy beat of a giant V-twin, comfortably settled in the leather seat, enjoying the cool morning air. It’s a pretty good place to be. The bike is brand-new. You can feel the engine…

0 Yamaha R3 review

0 Suzuki SV650: Long term update

0 Launch Report: Triumph T100 and Street Cup

We head south to test out Triumph’s brand-new offerings “Yet another Triumph in ARR I can hear you say”. Yes, it’s true that we have featured quite a few in recent time. There’s a very solid reason for that. The Hinckley (the reborn Triumph brand) mob have actually gone berserk…

0 Long term test: Suzuki SV650 and Triumph Street Cup

We have a brace of bikes to put through the test of real-world ownership. Will they stack up? Let’s meet the newest members of the Road Rider crew… So, a reader (that’s you, for the confused among us) rightly wants to know what a bike is like. The pressure is…
