On the cover of the October issue of Cycle Torque is Honda’s new CBR1000RR Fireblade.
The ‘Blade gets a reboot in 2017, it’s lithely, more powerful and gets a whole suite of electronics! Philip James provides an in-depth road rider’s report and is well worth a read if you love a weekend blast on a mountain road.
Also tested in the issue is Triumph’s ‘genuine factory custom’ Bonneville Bobber. While it may not be for everyone, it’s a sexy machine regardless, so just about anybody could see themselves taking this cruel mistress home.
What goes up must come down – it’s a basic law of physics and how your suspension works. If only it was that easy. Well it is! Philip James explains the black art, and points you in the right direction which’ll help make your boingers work best for you.
Ride your Motorcycle to Work Week is on in October, and we’ve got the latest products and smart-cas’ motorcycle clothing to get you there and back. Oh, there’s wet-weather gear too (just in case…).
Want opinion? You got it! We’re brave enough to try and solve the slow start to the Australian motorcycle industry. Is there such a thing as too much choice? I reckon there could be. What do you think?
Make sure you check out the latest motorcycle news, plenty of embedded videos, slideshows and links to extra information.
