Benelli TNT 135 review

More than cheap and cheerful, the Benelli TNT 135 is a quality option. Back in 2017, Benelli burst onto the small bike scene with their TNT 125, battling against the likes of Honda’s Grom and the Kawasaki Z125 Pro. This year. Benelli has brought a new weapon to the funky

2020 Kawasaki Z H2

Kawasaki has taken its high-spec, high-performance H2 and made it available to the masses. Less than a decade ago, the idea of a supercharged motorcycle from a major manufacturer seemed pretty fanciful. Sure, there had been supercharged bikes in the past, but these were confined to the dragstrip and salt

Held ‘Solid Dry’ 2-in-1 motorbike gloves review

It’s winter, and warm gloves are a biker rider’s best friend. When I hear about any motorcycle gear claiming to be an all-rounder, I’m suspicious. The “jack of all trades” is master of none in my experience, but I was pleased to find an exception to that rule in the

After a long and successful history in cruisers, Indian moved into new territory with the release of the FTR 1200 S. For an American brand that was built on – and reborn with – cruisers, Indian’s addition of the FTR 1200 range to their lineup was a bold move. Categorically
