    MoreBikes editor Ross is over in Spain at the launch testing of Triumph’s Tiger 900 GT and Rally Pro. Here are his first impressions: Kicked off the day with a relaxed ride up into the hills above Malaga on the Rally Pro. Despite the greasy, slightly damp roads, the bike has shone. Its silky smooth…

    It’s one thing to brake hard on a straight bit of road, but what happens when you have to do it while riding through a corner? This is what… We’ve all been there: ridden into a corner a bit too fast, and found ourselves wanting to slow down while the bike is banked over. The…

    £2500-£7000 It’d be rude not to mention the bike which the DEs replaced. The V-Strom 650 is widely considered a brilliant ‘little’ bike, that’s long been regarded as a smart choice by bikers who approve of its usability, versatility and exceptional value for money. There is a slightly more off-road leaning XT variant, but the…

    £1000-£3000 We love Yamaha’s TDM850. It was ahead of its time when it was first released back in the early 90s, offering top road manners in a trail bike-esque package. You could probably call it the first road-focused adventure bike… although strangely, it never proved particularly popular in the UK. Those in the know praise…

    £3500-£8500 The second generation of Honda’s VFR800X Crossrunner wasn’t exactly a runaway success. It wasn’t particularly on-trend, offering neither the off-road capable all-rounder abilities of a ‘traditional’ adventure bike which were in vogue at the time, nor the eye-widening performance of a more focused sporty tourer. But it’s a brilliant bike, superbly put together (it’s…

    Looking for a thumper of a trail bike? Yamaha XT600 is a brilliant bit of kit. While it’s not going to win any awards for its outright performance, it’s solid, reliable and uncomplicated; making it the perfect example of the back to basics trail bikes of the ‘90s. Its knobbly tyres, soft suspension and sightly…

    Big trail bikes were everywhere 30 years ago. Honda’s XR, Kawasaki’s KLR and Suzuki’s DR snapped up sales left, right and centre, offering just the right balance of off-road prowess and usable road manners. But if you like your bikes rugged and a little bit raucous, there are only a handful of options that fit…

    Our Jono has spent the Spring and Summer with the Kymco Adventure Scooter. We’ve fitted accessories to it and enjoyed many rides with the Kymco. You may recall Jono’s ‘off’ in a ford… You can see all the videos featuring the Kymco on our YouTube Channel – just search ‘Kymco’. Now, here’s Jono’s thoughts on…

    After some inspiration for 2024? How about the Scottish Boarders… The Scottish Borders is a haven for bikers. It’s often bypassed by tourists pressing on to get up to the more dramatic Highlands, but they’re missing out on some seriously special scenery and surprisingly quiet twisty roads.
