Gallery: Adventure bike road test

  • By cannonball

The BMW R1200GS has been one of Britain’s best-sellers since it first appeared. But it’s started to face some seriously tough competition. Honda’s Africa Twin has seduced many with its capable road manners and competitive price – it’s nearly £5k less than the Beemer. And Ducati have muscled in as well.

The Multistrada S, we tested is aimed more at fast road riding than monumental mud-plugging and it’s bristling with high-tech gadgetry.

The 11 Best Motorcycles of EICMA 2016

  • By cannonball

In Milan, the huge EICMA show is finally winding down. It’s the world’s most influential motorcycle showcase, and a barometer for the state of the industry.

This year, the giant halls were chock-a-block with new bike launches from all sectors of the market. Ducati showed the 1299 Superleggera for folks who like to wear one-piece leathers, and the Aerostich brigade got a treat with a whole fleet of new ADV and commuter bikes.

But the center of gravity was the modern-retro scene, with the ‘modern’ part finally catching up with the ‘retro’ part. There were 70s throwbacks a-plenty, but also some intriguing new approaches to stripped-back, classic styling.

Well they did say they wanted it tuned…

  • By cannonball

The bike, built around a HD 883 Sportster engine, is brimming with musical references throughout, from the swingarm that is supposed to represent a fret board, the battery box styled to be a guitar amplifier, the air filter shaped like a microphone, the list goes on. In fact, the only standard part on the machine is the engine; everything else is bespoke with it all made in house by GOC with the exception of the seat, which also has a musical reference with the notes of AC/DCs Highway to Hell engraved.

  • By cannonball

While their relationship as teammates has been acrimonious at best over the past few years, both Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo took the time on Sunday evening to come together and make something of a reconciliation after a bitter few years together, as the Spaniard makes the move to Ducati for next season.
