2015 Alta RedShift SM Electric Supermoto

2015 Alta RedShift SM – An Electric Supermoto

You could call the 2015 Alta RedShift SM the ultimate hooligan bike - if only the price was lower and the range longer. Unfortunately, these two factors make the Alta RedShift SM a rich man's toy which is such a shame as it looks like it would be stupidly good fun to ride. Here's why. Firstly, the Redshift SM has the most powerful engine in a motorcycle today, based on a hp/lb ratio. It puts out 40hp from it's 11lb engine. ...

Yamaha R3 vs Kawasaki Ninja 300 vs Honda CBR300R Specification Comparison

Previously, we've test ridden ...

2015 Kawasaki Vulcan S – An ER6 Inspired Cruiser

Kawasaki has just announced the new Kawasaki Vulcan S, a 650cc cruiser that's based on the ER6 platform (ER6-n, Ninja 650, Versys 650) and will be released in the United States and Europe.

EBR 1190RX Road Test Review

The EBR 1190RX isn’t the first bike to rise from the ashes of the Buell Motorcycle Company after Harley-Davidson shut the brand down in 2009, but it is the first real massed produced model and is one well worth considering in comparison to the better known exotic rivals from Europe like the Ducati Panigale 1199, Aprilia RSV4 and even the KTM RC8.  And while the EBR 1190RX doesn't have the sex appeal of a Ducati Panigale or ...

2015 Yamaha XJR1300 Racer

The new 2015 Yamaha XJR1300 Racer was a pleasant surprise at this years Intermot, though unfortunately was overshadowed by the likes of the Ducati Scramber and Kawasaki Ninja H2R.

If you haven't heard of the XJR1300 before, it probably means ...
