I covered around 1000 kilometres astride the R1 on roads which included tight/slow corners, fast open bends & straight touring stretches. Road surface quality varied considerably throughout. I compare the R1 to the ZX9R a lot here because people...

Bimota YB11

The YB11 is powered by a lightly modified Yamaha YZF1000 ThunderAce donk (go here for dyno charts).    This particular Bimota I tested had steel brake lines and an Arrow muffler as the only departures from standard trim.  And...
After spending the best part of a week with the Suzuki flagship (a ship out of Battlestar Galactica was how one onlooker described it) I have come to respect the Hayabusa as a good all-rounder. 5.8 kilometres after hopping aboard...
After 850 kilometres astride the CBR 600 I have found just how truly versatile the F4 is. 800 of those kilometres included some pretty hard riding over 2 days, without my body getting too sore from the experience. The CBR is...
The ZR-7 is a retro-style 750 that is very competitively priced in Australia at only $9,790. I rode the bike for around 150 kilometres and was impressed by its light feel and agility.  The Kawasaki figures say the ZR-7 weighs...
he GSX-R 600 is a race-replica if there ever was one.  Racer boy ergonomics, peaky top-end power, reasonable brakes and fantastic handling make the GSX-R a pretty sharp package. Surprisingly enough though I didn't find the little GSX-R that uncomfortable...
The RF900R has one major downfall, most people do not like the way it looks, I think it looks OKAY, some love it, most loathe it. But after you get past that first impression and have ridden the 937cc...
The DR650SEV is marketed by Suzuki as a Dual-Sport motorcycle, I would class the DR650 as a bit of a bush track blaster while being  outstanding in the role of a commuter.  Big singles are cheap to run.  Check...
The day I had the biggest of the Intruder range on test was hot to say the least. Over 40° C in fact. In spite of the heat I covered around 200 kilometres aboard the VL 1500. The roads covered...
The Bimota SB6 is one expensive motorcycle, around $35,000 thank you very much. That is a lot of money when the current crop of Japanese hotshots are so good these days, at half the price. But if you are thinking...

HONDA VFR800

The VFR Honda has a fanatical following of enthusiasts who simply would not ride anything else.  Is it the balance between cruising, touring or fanging?  Is it the truly fantastic note of the V-Four engine when fitted with a more...
The ZX9R Ninja is one of the most exciting rides around, this is mainly because of it's very lively and entertaining power delivery. The 899cc donk is of an oversquare design allowing for big valves while providing a short stroke...
