Brace yourselves. Serious motorcycle porn.

25 Pictures that’ll make you want to part with your money…

1. Ducati 1198S

Prince William turned up in style to a play in a polo match at Coworth Park club in Ascot, Berkshire, on a new £14,500 Ducati 1198S super bike

2. Triumph Street Triple RS

Triumph's new naked sporty-roadster… Big-bike grunt and power. Still every bit a Street. New 765cc uses an engine that's set to power the next generation of Moto2 race bikes after 2018.

3. Kawasaki Ninja 650

The Ninja 650 is a winning replacement for the ER-6f meeting Euro 4 legislation whilst remaining an enjoyable bike to ride…

4. BMW R1200GS Adventure

The BMW R1200GS made the adventure bike class what it is today. It made BMW Motorrad what it is today. It probably made Charley Boorman what he is today. But that’s not important.

5. Triumph Thruxton R 

Engage your brain and put your riding head on, because this is a bike for tear-arsing around. And that's just what the Thruxton R makes you do.

6. Harley Davidson Street 750

The Harley that’s not like a Harley… This bikes hopes to bring new people to the brand by pricing it at £5,795 (£1,700 cheaper than the next cheapest model in the range). Read everything there is to know about the Harley-Davidson Street 750 here.

7. Honda Africa Twin

Honda’s best-selling motorcycle… Competing in the market against the popular BMW R1200GS, but at a fraction of the price costing nearly 3,000 less than the BMW. Read full review of the Honda African Twin here.

8. BMW HP4 Race (2017)

The machine was billed as BMW’s "most exciting and exclusive motorcycle" ever when it was revealed in prototype form at last year’s Milan show and the specs suggest just that. 

The HP4 Race has been developed specifically for the track and claims 215hp and weighs just 171kg fuelled – lighter than current World Superbikes - thanks to a full carbon-fibre frame and wheels.

9. Honda Fireblade SP

2017… Honda has given the legendary Fireblade its first proper update since 2008. Is it better than the old one? Definitely. You can feel there’s more grunt all round and the electronics are really well executed.

10. Triumph Explorer XCA

“Built for all terrain, the all-new Tiger Explorer XCA is the ultimate go anywhere, do anything transcontinental motorcycle”. Read Triumph Tiger Explorer review here.

11. Kawasaki H2

Kawasaki Ninja H2 and H2R have to be two of the most intimidating motorcycles to have launched in a long time. They’re sharp and aggressive. Both have 998cc engines mated to a whopping great big supercharger = Serious power.

12. Ducati Monster 821

When you do start the engine, you're greeted by the deep rumble that characterises Ducatis. The temptation to blip the throttle and turn that rumble into a bark is irresistible. 

Ducati say the Monster 821's target customers include established Monster fans and new riders. They're offering a restricted 48hp version in some EU countries for A2 licence holders, but unfortunately not in the UK. Read full Monster 821 review here.

13. KTM 1290 Super Duke R

Top speed of about 160mph… Perhaps the Beast 2.0’s most appealing attribute is its enthusiasm for tearing your head from your shoulders. Here's what we thought when we took the KTM 1290 Super Duke R out for a ride.

14. Triumph Street Twin

Modern retro. Neo retro. Contemporary classic. Whatever you want to call them, the demand for these bikes seems stronger than ever. The Street Twin is meant to be the most accessible of the new Triumph Bonnies and at £7,300 it’s the cheapest.

15. KTM RC 390

One of the hottest A2 bikes offering newer or younger riders the prospect of capable commuting, heaps of weekend fun, frugal fuel consumption, sports bike looks and triple digit top speeds…

Watch the KTM RC 390 vs Yamaha R3 here.

16. MV Agusta F4RR

One of the most powerful bikes on the market with screaming 201hp @ 13,600rpm. However, it’s not a Euro4-compliant bike, and as such it’s living on borrowed time.

17. Royal Enfield Continental GT

There’s no pretending the Royal Enfield Continental GT is not a good-looking machine. That classic horizontal line made by the frame tubes and tank. The simple one-colour paint job. That café racer bum stop. Those piggyback shocks in a similar shade of gold to Öhlins.

18. Suzuki GSX-R1000

Suzuki’s 2017 GSX-R1000 claims to be the most powerful, hardest-accelerating, cleanest-running GSX-R ever built. The new 999.8cc motor makes 202hp at 13,200rpm, an increase of 17hp.

19. Triumph Tiger XRT

The XRT is made up of a 800cc triple engine with immense levels of torque to deliver power in any gear. Read our full Triumph Tiger Explorer review here.

20. Yamaha MT-09 2017 

Based on the success of the MT-09, Yamaha have recently announced that they will be releasing a MT-09 SP model… A high-spec version of the MT-09. Read more about it here.

21. Yamaha XSR 900

With its fashionable retro looks and the DNA of the hugely-successful MT-09 – what could possibly go wrong? Very little is the answer. Read our full review of the Yamaha XSR 900 here.

22. Yamaha YZF-R6 (2006)

Whilst the 2006 model looks mighty impressive, the new 2017 version doesn’t disappoint either… In fact, it’s probably in a class of its own.

23. KTM 1290 Super Duke GT

173hp and is more than capable of getting you a tasty driving ban before you’ve even made it out of first gear. After all, KTM’s brand motto is ‘Ready to Race’, so it’s only right they take the ‘sport’ in sports tourer seriously. Here's what we thought of the KTM 1290 Super Duke GT when we took it for a ride.

24. Ducati Monster 821 (2018)

Ahead of its five-strong 2018 range reveal at EICMA, Ducati has presented the updated Monster 821, a model heavily inspired by the original Monster 900.

25. Suzuki GSX-S1000

A simple super-naked to challenge the S1000R and Super Duke R. The GSX-S1000 might seem underpowered on paper, without as many electronics options as the competition, but the riding experience puts it on a par with the best in the class.
