IN this edition of Cycle Torque we have a huge feature on how to make it through the winter staying warm, dry and comfy – if you are planning any trips through the cooler months, this article is vital reading ‘cos, yep. Winter is coming. Are you ready for it?

Both bikes are limited editions, the Kwaka is a purely-modern take on classic British machines of yesteryear, while the Diavel, part sports, part cruiser isn’t really a take on anything.

The Raptor 700 is more of a trail-based enduro ATV, while the YFZ450R Hypersports is simply insane – perfect for taming jumps and motocross racing.
