They are the must-have accessory for the hipster generation but can they actually do what they say on the tin or are they the biggest lie in motorcycling right now? There's no denying they are seriously cool, however, that is until Mat, Don and Harry get on them..... view all

Like many other cruisers, Suzuki's Boulevard is brash and gaudy but has sold consistently since its introduction in 2006. Now, it has been updated and renamed to the Intruder but remains the same under the skin. For some reason, we've never tested on on The Bike Show so Mat takes a deep breath and comes away impressed. view all

They're big....VERY big! But does that count against them or work in their favour? BMW's 6-cylinder touring bikes are a masterpiece of engineering, with an engine that is one of the great engines in modern motorcycling and with an electronics suite that makes the eyes water. Now, BMW has pandered to the U.S. market and brought out the Bagger. It's a little smaller than the GTL but has it gained anything by shrinking? Mat and Harry find out. view all

KTM TPI Fuel Injected Two Stroke Enduro Bikes

The Bike Show posted the article • 0 comments • 56 views • 2019-05-08 18:07 • data from similar tags

 

For many, the demise of the two-stroke from road bike application has been something to regret for many reasons. The engine type has been accused of being catastrophic to the environment, not fuel efficient, noisy and so on. It seemed as if the only way we were ever going to get our hands on a two-stroke bike was to go off-road. As of this moment, that is still the case but there is hope. After years of perfecting the technology, KTM has just launched their 2018 range of fuel injected two-strokes which promise to solve all of the problems of emissions and fuel consumption. Would it be too much to hope that we might see the technology transferred to road bikes in the future? Donovan was in Lesotho to try out the new enduro bikes and came away with a glimmer of hope in his eyes. view all

This is definitely a bike we have been waiting for with baited breath; Ducati's latest superbike, the Panigale V4, here in S guise. It the demise of the venerable V-Twin something to be lamented or does the new engine configuration breathe a new lease of life into the grand marque from Italy? Mat takes time to ride the new along with the old, in the form of a 998S Final Edition and, for good measure, the latest Multistrada 1260S. The verdict might surprise you. view all

Not all of us can afford a brand new bike, but the thing is, we don't really need to. Bikes from a few years ago are still awesomely fantastic but can cost a fraction of the new price and if you shop around carefully, you can find low-mileage examples that are, to all intents and purposes, as good as new. Mat and Harry head to their favourite bike dealer in Johannesburg and choose two that take their fancy. view all
