Triumph 1050 Speed Triple R
The Speed Triple is a modern classic which, in comparison to the other nakeds on test, seems almost timeless in its styling. This is a clever move in a sector where many bikes polarise opinions with their looks, and date quickly as a consequence. I haven’t met a single person w
As the only bike on test I’d not yet ridden, the Yamaha MT-10 was the one I looked forward to the most. It’s just the way being bikurious works. Luckily I’ve come to dismiss first impressions, because although some may like the robotic look, in my opinion the MT-10 looks
KTM 1290 Super Duke R
The legend of the orange Beast is one that strikes either fear, fanaticism, or bewilderment into the heart of all who come face to face with it. Even if you have no knowledge of the phenomenal power it wields, both its towering height and aggressive poise make it an intimidating
Ducati Monster 1200 R
Last time AMCN ran a naked group test it was the Monster 1200 S that joined the party. It was obvious from the outset that the S model was a very different animal than the other supernakeds. With an easier-going temperament and more laidback attitude than the stripped-back racer
A formidable contender in the supernaked class, the BMW S1000R features an eye-popping spec sheet, high-performance S1000RR lineage and great pricing that helped it win AMCN Motorcycle of the Year in its debut back in 2014. Two years on it remains an extremely attractive package
The 2016 Naked Shootout
Seven faces, seven vastly different characters, one goal – to rule the road, and convince us all to go naked!

Buell XB12X Ulysses 2004-2009
Radical design, decent Harley power and grunt make for an adventure tourer right outta left-field
Harley-Davidson’s decision to shut down Buell in 2009 brought an end, first time around, to Erik Buell’s dream of breaking the conventional two-wheeled template of American motorcycle design. The bankruptcy last year of his successor company, EBR, after a run-in with his Indi
BMW R nineT Scrambler
Take one R nineT, dust lightly with soil, then trim off $2K of rind without sacrificing any of its soul-soothing, smile-inducing flavour. Sound like a good deal? You betcha!
Ducati Hypermotard 939 - Hyper-alert Hyper-charged Hyper-power
Simply put, Ducati’s new Hypermotard 939 is a weapon. It’s lean and mean, with a healthy dose of thumping power to justify the ‘supermoto on steroids’ look that sets it apart from everything else on the road. This motorcycle shook up the world when it debuted in the ca
