Honda CB1100 2013 review

Honda_CB1100_03

Honda has raised the bar with the new CB1100: it's not just the style which is retro, the handling and engine have been given an old school flavour too.

Honda_Fukunaga_01

Hirofumi Fukunaga is what Honda describes as the Large Project Leader for the CB1100 development, meaning he has full control and the final say on every aspect of the design. He talks about the development of the bike.

Triumph Tiger Sport

Triumph has unveiled the keenly awaited Tiger Sport, and the changes have been much more extensive than expected, including a single-sided swingarm and an extra 10bhp!

Guzzi_Cal_14_02

The new California 1400 really needs to work for Moto Guzzi. The company's grown by more than 50 per cent in the last two years, but that's from such a low base it wasn't going to be sustainable for much longer, and with the Piaggio Group feeding a £34 million investment into Guzzi, a major turnaround is demanded: the California 1400 is intended to be a key element of that.
