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

Cars·VehiclesThe Bike Show posted the article • 0 comments • 364 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

We previously looked at offerings from Kawasaki and Honda but this is the one we've really been waiting to get our hands on; BMW's G310GS. Harry got to ride it first and came away very impressed. He's taken a lot of flak for his opinion but he's sticking to it. So, cue the movie and the abuse!

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

It's easy to criticise a Harley Davidson Sportster for being extremely old-fashioned. But is there any merit in the bike whatsoever? Harry has managed to bag one as a long-term test bike to see if the numbers really do stack up. view all

The Roof of Africa has been described as the Mother of Hard Enduro and anyone who can win this grueling event has to be very special indeed. Donovan catches up with 2017 winner Wade Young and enduro legend, Alfie Cox at the end of the 2017 event in Lesotho, in Southern Africa. view all

KTM TPI Fuel Injected Two Stroke Enduro Bikes

Cars·VehiclesThe Bike Show posted the article • 0 comments • 364 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

Ducati Panigale V4S Full Test

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

Kawasaki blew us all away with the H2, the supercharged monster that was a triumph of modern engineering and packaging. Now they've added a whole new dose of practicality to the concept and brought out the H2SX, the touring model. Has bringing in some sanity to the recipe diluted the experience or enhanced it? Donovan tries to find out. view all

Like it or not, electricity as a motive force is here to stay and is only going to get better and more essential as the petrol engine is increasingly banned from cities. Having said that, it's not all doom and gloom as these two machines demonstrate. 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

When is a KTM RC8 an RC12?

KTM's RC8 superbike wasn't necessarily the success the company was looking for. Now, one enterprising Johannesburg KTM dealer has shoe-horned the latest 1290 Super Duke engine into an RC8 chassis and created a bit of a monster. Donovan takes one to the limit at the track. view all

In this, the age of the adventure bike, the traditional large touring bike seems to have lost its relevance but that hasn't stopped the manufacturers from making some very impressive machines. The 1400GTR is Kawasaki's effort and it's been around a long time. Can it hold a candle to newer, better equipped models or is it starting to look a bit long in the tooth? view all

Ducati has been faithful to the V-twin for nearly 50 years but now, it's time for a change. All hail the new Panigale V4. Donovan went to Spain to attend the launch and, despite a trip to the medical centre, came away very impressed indeed. In this part, we try to cool his fevered brow by taking a look at the history of the V-twin Ducati and the superbikes of the late-1980's onwards. view all

In that part, we covered the history of Ducati superbikes but, fear not, because in this part, we bring you up to speed on everything you need to know about the new bike. In time we'll have a proper road test of the bike, but you'll have to wait for a few weeks for that. In the meantime, enjoy the sight of Donovan crashing his heart out! view all

BMW G310 GS Full Test

Now, here's a review that's going to polarise opinion! Traditionally, adventure bikes are large, heavy, complex and powerful. But recently there has been a move to smaller bikes in the class and we here at the Bike Show think that this is definitely a Good Thing. We previously looked at offerings from Kawasaki and Honda but this is the one we've really been waiting to get our hands on; BMW's G310GS. Harry got to ride it first and came away very impressed. He's taken a lot of flak for his opinion but he's sticking to it. So, cue the movie and the abuse!
