Welcome to the May 2015 issue of Cycle Torque Magazine.
There’s plenty in this month’s new-look Cycle Torque. On the cover is the 2015 BMW R 1200 R, the fastest and most aggressive to date. We take the Yamaha MT-09 Tracer on a tour of the Hunter Valley. There’s also the Monster 821, Ducati’s lumpy liquid-cooled V-twin. Todd Reed jumps on Suzuki’s ADR compliant RMX 450 Z though the Victorian hills of Mt Buller.
Dennis checks out the latest ATV and side-by-side offerings from CFMoto, comprehensively testing the X550 ATV and the U550 UTV range at the 4×4 training ground in Werribee, Victoria.
Feeling the chill? We have got you covered with ten pages of winter gear that will keep you riding, all year round.
Troy Bayliss stole the show at Phillip Island earlier this year, so we have thrown in a poster to celebrate the ephemeral return of the legend.
Fancy riding a Royal Enfield across Myanmar (Burma)? Jay Kannaiyan is an enterprising soul who runs tours through the country time forgot and you can read about all about it.
Cycle Torque has just finished up its second TV series, which was on Thursday nights at 7:30 FTA (4ME 64 or 74 metro) and 8:30 Foxtel (Aurora 183). In conjunction with Moto National, Cycle Torque gave one Contour Roam 3 action camera to give away in every episode! Thanks to all our viewers and entries. Check your local guide because you might be able to catch a repeat episode.
We hope you love the issue – please tell your friends about Cycle Torque’s digital editions, they are really easy to get and are packed with extra pics and embedded video that makes them a pleasure to read. If you don’t have a smart device, you can always pop into the better bike shops that stock Cycle Torque Magazine and pick up a copy.
