MotoGP Springtime for Aprilia

Don’t ask me how that happened. Aprilia, I mean. From bottom of the class to the top of the podium, in one easy move. Well, perhaps not one … it’s actually taken seven years of dogged persistence in the face of serial humiliation. But it still seems to have elements of all-of-a-sudden.

BMW K1600 Technical Funny Front Fork

BMW's choice of a so-called 'funny front fork' for all its K-series bikes up to and including the 2022 K1600 family of models was a typically brave and free-thinking decision from the German company, often given insufficient credit for being not only Europe's largest manufacturer of premium motorcycles, but also the most technically advanced, and versatile.

COMING ALONG NICELY SUZUKI Katana

Last year April we bought a Suzuki Katana as a Long-Term test bike, so we could ride it for 12 months, report on it, try and improve it and give you the reader, constant feedback. The initial reporting was done in Superbike Magazine but with us now having merged that mag with Bike SA, we continue the story here. Without having seen a black one in the flesh, we took the plunge and ordered one from Suzuki Motorcycles South Africa. Although silver is the colour associated with the original Katana, we thought to be different and opt for the black one.
