KTM 990 SMT

When I first rode KTM’s 950 Supermoto model early last year I was most impressed, and judged it as the most practical all round roadbike yet to come from the Austrian manufacturer. An excellent fuel range and ergonomics...
Vespa Primavera Review - By Trevor Hedge Vespa was cool before hipster was cool, and remains cool now that hipster is so not cool; the same way as Vespa has seen other trends come and go it has remained current...
BMW S 1000 R Reviewed - By Trevor Hedge We always knew the game changing S 1000 RR power plant would find it's way in to other models, it's just surprising that it took this long, but now the...
2017 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade Reviewed at Phillip Island By Mark Willis - Images  by Robert Murdoch / Honda The glorious layout of the Phillip Island Grand Prix circuit played host to the national press launch of the all new welcome to the digital...
Honda first introduced the VFR750 more than 24 years ago and over that time the model has built up an enviable record for great reliability and a wonderful blend of performance and practicality. The move to VFR800 nomenclature happened...
2016 Yamaha YZ250 Review By Todd Jarratt Yamaha are one of the only manufacturers still producing a 250 two-stroke motocross machine and in 2016 it has undergone a few minor refinements, as well as seeing the addition of black rims and...
Moto Guzzi 1200 Sport 4V Review By Trevor Hedge If you like the idea of riding something distinctly different and perhaps even a little eccentric, then perhaps a Guzzi is part of your destiny. While most European brands have embraced the latest...
Triumph Sprint GT Review By Trevor Hedge Triumph’s Sprint GT looks fairly bland and riding the bike for the first time I couldn't help but think UJM. That unflattering descriptive acronym once so often used to describe Japanese motorcycles. A term...
Honda's ST 1100 model ran for 12 years and during that time earned itself an enviable reputation amongst touring motorcyclists.  Now the ST has grown up and matured in to the ST 1300. Weight is down, power is up.  But...
A motorcycle that provides a good mix of acceptable performance on both bush trails and tarmac makes for a versatile adventure machine. Motorcycles that offer these benefits can be split in two camps. Bikes such as the DR650 Suzuki,...
Ducati XDiavel S Review Ducati XDiavel Tested by Trevor Hedge - Action images by Greg Smith Ducati, now over 90-years-old, is more widely known for producing cutting edge sportsbikes, rather than fat-tyred, low-slung cruisers, but the Diavel, first introduced in 2011,...
2016 Yamaha MT-03 Tested Yamaha's new MT-03 reviewed by Boris Mihailovic I am always a little nonplussed when I’m plonked on a Learner Approved Motorcycle (LAM) bike and asked to review it, presumably so beginners will be enthralled enough to consider...

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...
Honda’s entry into the performance four-stroke enduro market was a long time coming but the wait proved worthwhile. Honda’s CRF250X was introduced in 2004 and has steadily improved ever since. The latest model is slimmer between the knees than...
--  MC News Test – 2013 Husqvarna TE250R/TE310R - ‘R’ Is For Race! --  By Darren Smart The 2013 Husqvarna TE250R and TE310R have an ‘R’ added to their names and more importantly both models have benefitted from recent race development...
They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but if that were the case this story would already be over, so I guess I better fess up. Unfortunately, there are no tales of wild nights and huge wins...
2015 Yamaha YZF-R1 and YZF-R1M Test Ride Review / Engineering Analysis with Mark McVeigh @ MotoDNA When the Yamaha YZF-R1 was first launched it became an instant icon.  A tri- axis engine with GP style chassis was cutting edge technology in...
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...
Suzuki GSX-S1000 and GSX-S1000F By Boris Mihailovic Let’s be honest. There isn’t a Gixxer freak alive who hasn’t walked into his shed late at night, pulled out his spanners, and said to himself: “I am so gonna streetfighter this bastard up!...
Harley-Davidson 48 Review By Trevor Hedge   Harley’s new 48 Sportster is perhaps the coolest new motorcycle of the year. It is Steve McQueen or James Dean cool. Like Triumph’s Thruxton the 48 provides riders with best of yesteryear styling without the...
--  Honda VFR1200X Cross Tourer Review --  By Trevor Hedge Honda has officially joined the adventure-touring party in earnest with the arrival of the long awaited VFR1200X Cross Tourer. At 275kg wet, Honda’s latest model is aimed squarely at the long distance...
--  Kawasaki Ninja 1000 Review By Trevor Hedge There was a time when Kawasaki made some of the most practical road going sportsbikes with exciting engines and good road-tuned suspension, combined with friendly ergonomics. The 1998 through to 2003 ZX-9R Ninja...

Honda CB400

I first spied Honda’s new CB400 on the back of a ute at the launch of the 2008 CBR1000RR Fireblade at Phillip Island. The assembled throng of Australia’s motorcycle scribes were immediately drawn away from the exciting new Fireblade...
BMW R 1200 GS Adventure Review (2014) MCNews.com.au recently covered 1100km around Tasmania on BMW’s new R 1200 GS Adventure, half of which was off-road on a variety of surfaces and terrain. We then jumped on the overnight ferry to...

Honda's hugely successful FireBlade debuted in 1992 and re-wrote the rules for big bore sportsbikes like no other before it.  A further refinement of the excellent Year 2000 model (929), the new 6th generation FireBlade offers plenty of improvements. ...
My first few kilometres on Ducati’s new Streetfighter were not all that enjoyable. Upon thumbing the starter outside the Chifley Hotel near Eastern Creek Raceway, the big twin reluctantly fired into life. But with politically correct standard pipes the charismatic...
Suzuki GSX-S1000 Review - Suzuki GSX-S1000F Review Tested by Trevor Hedge Nakedbike fans have been making street-fighters out of GSX-R1000s for years. To be honest, I always thought why ruin a perfectly good sportsbike? Most backyarders pulled the fairings off, chucked on...
