Lexus RX500h F Sport Performance Hybrid Review

Driving Innovation: Lexus RX500h F Sport Performance Hybrid Review

What better way to test the Lexus RX500h F Sport than a trip to the fabulous Headland Hotel, a magnificent baroque 5-star folly perched on a cliff overlooking Fistral Beach down in Newquay, Cornwall?  And the Lexus RX500h was the perfect touring companion, luxury first-class travel all the way.

Honda XL750 Transalp

Honda XL750 Transalp

The Transalp name is one of the most iconic and long-standing names in the adventure bike hall of fame.

It was born in 1987 and was in continuous production right up until 2012 when it finally succumbed to declining sales. 

Over the next 10 years, the name lay dormant, waiting and watching as the buying public’s tastes changed and the adventure bike was born again. In 2023 Honda revived the legendary name and boy, they did it justice.

Honda CB750 Hornet

Honda CB750 Hornet - Sting Like A.....Hornet

I’m old enough to remember the original Honda Hornet CB600F in the late 90s’. That was a fun bike. A 600cc inline 4 engine from the CBR600, steel frame, naked bike. It was a simple recipe but great fun.

In 2023 Honda took the name of the beloved street bike from the 90s and put it on a brand new machine. The Honda Hornet CB750 was reborn.

The keyboard warriors went a bit mad, saying it wasn't a real Hornet, you know how it goes, but I’ve ridden it and can say it wears the name well.

Porsche Taycan GTS Turismo Tour Review

Electrifying Elegance, Maximum Excitement: Porsche Taycan GTS Turismo Tour Review

The Porsche Taycan GTS Turismo is a four-door, four to five-seat electric estate that combines the best of both worlds, top-tier handling and space. A GTS label means it's going to be just a little bit special and sporty, but how good is the electric GTS really? 

We took it up to Bath, then along the Sussex coast for a little paragliding session. All to see how it fared on long journeys, and whether we could learn to stop worrying about range and love an electric Porsche, to paraphrase Dr Strangelove.

Moto Guzzi Stelvio / Aprilia RS457

I recently called into Piaggio UK for a sneak peek of the new Moto Guzzi Stelvio and Aprilia RS457.

These all-new models both represent important steps for the manufacturers. Unfortunately, they were jus for display and we didn't get a chance to ride, but wow!

First up is the Aprilia RS457. This sits between the RS660 and RS125 providing both an A2 stepping for those moving up from smaller capacity bikes and a fast, fun alternative to an unusable litre bike.

Harley Davidson Sportglide - The Best Of Both Worlds

Harley Davidson Sportglide - The Best Of Both Worlds

The Harley-Davidson Sport Glide is a motorcycle that exudes style and performance.  

It's a versatile machine that crosses boundaries. It’s at home tearing up the city streets, cruising to your favourite cafe or being a relaxed tourer.

With its powerful Milwaukee-Eight® 107 V-Twin engine, comfortable riding position and stylish design, the Sport Glide is a great choice for riders who want to enjoy the raw, brutish nature of a Harley Davidson V-Twin but with the dynamics of a well-designed, well sorted chassis.

Ducati Panigale V2 2023

Ducati Panigale V2 - Beauty and Passion Combined

Powerful engines, unmistakable design, innovative technologies and a burning passion for motorcycles: That is the credo of Ducati, the most desirable brand for powerful two-wheel products.

I was recently lucky enough to taste some of Ducati's delicious offerings for a couple of hours on a press day. One of the delights was the Panigale V2, named after the district of Borgo Panigale, home of Ducati.

Audi R8 Spyder V10 Performance RWD Edition S Tronic Review-paragliding tour

Audi R8 Spyder V10 Performance RWD Edition S Tronic Review

The Audi R8 V10 Performance RWD Spyder is smoother than a penguin in a tuxedo. It's the epitome of automotive elegance, gliding along the streets with a grace that could make a swan jealous. If sophistication were a car, this Spyder variant would be leading the parade, turning heads and effortlessly oozing style like a catwalk model at a fashion show. And Spyder means that you get to enjoy the open sky as seen from the comfort of a supercar.
