We’ve been using the 10C Evo for most of this year and have found it to be a top-spec and easy to use Bluetooth intercom. It also comes with the added bonus of having a proper 4K full HD camera built into one neat little package.

If you are getting fed up with your other half always using the ‘I was out on the bike!’ excuse for not answering your calls, this is the answer.

Whether you're touring Europe in the summer or trudging your way to work during the week. A decent motorcycle tank bag is an invaluable piece of kit. Rucksacks are great but is you can remove some of the stuff from their and deposit it into a tank bag, you’ll feel more comfortable and less fatigued at the end of your ride.

This GIVI 25 litre tank bag is an excellent choice, with loads of room, tons of pockets and the all-important transparent map pocket on top, and an extendable sleeve for longer rides.

RST Paragon Waterproof Glove - £69.99

Click to buy

When riding a motorcycle in winter, your hands can go from zero to freezing in around ten minutes. Cold hands don’t just make the rider grumpy, they also don’t respond as well to commands, make the rider feel sluggish and are generally not much fun.

The best way to prevent this is by using top-spec waterproof winter gloves.

These RST Paragon Waterproof Gloves are the mutts nuts, with a thick insulating layer that is covered by a heavy-duty yet flexible waterproof membrane. It also has a visor wiper on both left and right hands and benefits from a digital touch screen index finger.

AGV X3000 Barry Sheene Replica - £499.99

Click to buy

It may not be the helmet you wear the most or use all year round, but when you do wear it, you’re going to have a bloody massive grim on your face!

The legend that is Barry Sheene spent most of his racing career using AGV’s lids, along with other notable legends of the era Giacomo Agostini and Ángel Nieto.

This modern interpretation of Barry’s iconic lid is faithfully reproduced using all of AGV’s modern-day design and manufacturing techniques to make a helmet that is stylish, lightweight, and exceptionally strong.

Duratool Tool Kit

Click to buy

If there is one thing that goes hand in hand with riding motorcycles, it’s working on them. Whether you buy new bikes year after year or prefer to grab a project that you can spend long winter nights rebuilding, sooner or later you’re going to need some tool.

This 153 piece tool kit might not have absolutely every tool you will ever need, but it’s a very good starter for ten. If you know somebody who is just starting out in the world of two-wheels and an engine, this might be the most useful thing you could buy!

Rothewald Motorcycle Travel Toolkit - £35.64

Click to buy

Let’s not forget, not all motorcycle maintenance takes place in the garage. If you’re undertaking a short or long tour, doing so without a decent spec toolkit is like riding off without fuel. As the old adage goes, it’s better to have it and not need it, than the other way around…

This Rothewald toolkit is an excellent choice, featuring 51 pieces and a handy roll to keep everything in place. It’s also compact enough that it’ll sit neatly in the bottom of a top-box or pannier without taking up loads of room.

Vanucci VTS 1 boot - £72.39

Click to buy

Looking good on or off your bike shouldn’t mean you have to compromise on safety with the VTS 1 boot from Vanucci. Not only do they look great, but they are also CE certified to EN 13634:2017 making them a much more sensible choice than a pair of normal trainers or non-motorcycle boots.

RST GT Airbag Textile Jacket - £399.99

Click to buy

You might think that airbag technology was restricted to just high-end racing leathers or uber-expensive adventure jackets. What you might not know is that RST has adapted the same In&Motion technology that is used on the WorldSBK grid for use on your everyday commute.

The GT Airbag Textile jacket looks like any other textile motorcycle jacket, sleek with subtle branding. But held within the pre-installed back protector is a box of algorithms and magic that could significantly reduce the risk of injury in the event of a crash. And at £399.99, there isn’t a better value solution on the market.
