    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…

    We love the MT-09. Ever since its release, it’s proved itself a properly brilliant bit of kit which offers top performance and a rewarding ride in a surprisingly easy-to-live-with package – and it’s easy to see why it’s been such a success for Yamaha. But that doesn’t mean it’s not time for an update –…

    That’s right. KTM’s adding to its ever growing range of bonkers ‘middleweight’ naked bikes – and if the current range is anything to go by, the new £12,999 990 Duke’s going to be an absolute belter. The Austrian firm’s making big claims about the bike that’s being built at home. They’re saying it’s the lightest,…

    Building on the success of its recently released CB750 Hornet, Honda’s decided it’s time to bring a brand-new, big-bore Hornet back to the fold – and it looks like a winner.

    CFMoto has been going from strength to strength in recent years – and now it’s revealed a funky 450cc version of its NK naked to take it to the more established competition.
