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.

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.

Harley Davidson Low Rider S - Be Authentic

In this job, I am lucky enough to have ridden many different bikes. Fast, slow, big small and a lot in between. However, I have never ridden a Harley……until now. 

The lovely team that looks after the PR for Harley Davidson reached out and asked if I would like to try their wares and I’m not going to say no to an offer like that.
