Juiced! A McLaren Orange Yamaha MT-10 from deBolex

The Yamaha MT-10 is about as mental as naked bikes get. The 998 cc inline-four makes a stonking 158 hp and 111 Nm of torque, and backs up those numbers with razor-sharp handling. But with layer upon layer of angular plastics—and even fake air ducts—it’s the antithesis of everything the modern custom scene stands for. That’s a minor hurdle for our friends in south London, deBolex Engineering. Partners Calum Pryce-Tidd and Des Francis have developed a reputation for building tasteful…

Estenson Racing offered the 27-year-old Beach a contract to race a full season in American Flat Track…

I Want It All – In Search of The Perfect Tire  I want it all from my tires, super sticky, long life and a good ride.

Busting The Engine Break-In Myth

Getting a new motorcycle is an exciting prospect, but once you fire it up for the first time you’re left with what many deem a great responsibility: breaking in that new engine.

Once the components are polished smooth and broken in, friction is reduced,…

Europe’s biggest motorcycle market by sheer volume is Italy though, with 130,000 bikes sold in six months. Fittingly, Italy is also home to the huge EICMA motorcycle show, which has been running in Milan for the past week. There’s been a real buzz around this year’s…

Leatt Dual Axis Knee & Shin Guards Review

So the design of the Leatt Knee pads is unlike anything else on the market. There are three hard components  – the shin guard, the knee cover and the upper leg guard. These components are joined together with axis points on either sides of the knee, allowing the protection to stay in place at all times while still maintaining full movement.  On the inner side of the Leatt guards there is soft protection that goes up against your legs or…
