The MV Agusta Brutale 800RR is the alpha male of the middleweight nakedbike class. Its inline three-cylinder DOHC engine has 798cc, not the largest on test – that honour goes to the 799cc KTM – but it is by far the most powerful, pumping out 103kW and 87Nm. Almost everythi

The new BMW F 850 GS is something special. BMW have certainly made the focus of this bike to be far more off road oriented than previous years. It's ability through some of the toughest adventure trails I've ridden were undoubtedly impressive... yet you could tour in style

First ride - 2019 KTM 1290 Super Duke GT

The 2019 Super Duke GT is even more fun to ride than before. It’s sharper, stronger and more refined in every way – a fact underlined by the outgoing 2018 GT which my riding companion Luke Brackenbury, KTM’s PR Manager, had brought along to compare and contrast with the new
