Sport-Touring Motorcycle Reviews

A sport-touring bike blends the features of a sportbike and a touring bike. Sport-tourers are more comfortable and with greater luggage-carrying capacity than a sportbike, but far more agile than a ponderous luxury-touring rig. They have a more relaxed, upright seating position than sportbikes and usually come with some sort of saddlebags.

Best Motorcycles of 2012

2012 Triumph Tiger Explorer Review

What’s the Triumph Tiger Explorer got the BMW R1200GS does not? One cylinder and about 50 more pounds of wet weight. At least that’s what we can deduce at this juncture having ridden the two bikes separately but not yet directly compared them.

2012 KTM 990 SM-T Review

For riders whose focus is on backroad peg-scraping fun and don't mind traveling light, the KTM 990 SM-T retains all the elements of a hooligan supermoto motorcycle with a big-displacement engine while maintaining civil ergonomics.

2013 Triumph Trophy SE Preview

Since the demise of the Trophy in 2004, Triumph’s Sprint ST and GT have been tasked with representing the touring category for the Brits. That changes later this year with the re-introduction of the 2013 Triumph Trophy SE.

2012 Honda CBR1000RR Preview

Honda’s CBR1000RR has long been a favorite around the MO offices, especially since the 2008 version tested here. Nearly as light as a 600 but with liter-class-leading midrange power, the big double-R vaulted to the top of its class.

2011 Moto Guzzi Norge 1200 GT 8V Review

We try to hold Moto Guzzi to the same exacting standards we do other OEMs, but sometimes we just gotta give the company or its bikes a pass and say, "It's a Guzzi." Sometimes it's a complimentary remark and other times it's a rebuke. Best of 2011 Awards

The motorcycles that have made their way to dealerships in the last 12 months have been category-crushing and stunningly well developed. After riding everything this year, here’s our selections of the best motorcycles of 2011.

One of the most exciting new motorcycles this year is BMW’s K1600 platform, boasting the first inline six-cylinder motorcycle engine since the 1980s.

2011 Can-Am Spyder RT Limited Review [Video]

We’ve spent nearly a month touring around Southern California on the Can-Am Spyder RT Limited. This three-wheeler is tough to define, but it provides a unique and interesting alternative to the rest of the industry's touring motorcycles.

2011 Gentlemen Sportbike Shootout

Here are three ways to satisfy a thirst for a powerful sportbike without the pretzel-ed legs and sore wrists: the Kawasaki Ninja 1000, Yamaha FZ1 and Suzuki GSX1250FA. Read on to see who wins this three-way battle.

2011 Moto Guzzi Norge 1200 GT8V Review

The 2011 Moto Guzzi Norge GT 8V is a pretty irresistible sport-touring motorcycle despite its old-fashioned Italian flaws. The engine, new fairing and handling capabilities are fantastic.

2011 Suzuki GSX1250FA Review

A new motorcycle with sporting intentions but absent ground-breaking technology or a race-winning pedigree is easily overlooked. Enter the 2011 GSX1250FA, a semi-new model from Suzuki.

The Best Literbike for the Street

We recently had to chance to pit Kawasaki's new Ninja 1000 against a Kawasaki ZX-10R that had been modified for greater comfort to try to figure out which bike offers the best combination of power, performance and comfort for everyday riding.
