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.

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.

2011 Can-Am Spyder RT Limited Review [Video]

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.

2012 Motus MST Preview

Brian Case and Lee Conn, the brains behind Motus, have developed a new American-made sport-touring motorcycle they are hoping will reach production late in 2011 – the Motus MST. The goal was to build a do-it-all motorcycle that was sporty and comfortable.

2011 Suzuki GSX-R600 and GSX-R750 Revealed

American Suzuki surprised the industry last year by deciding not to import 2010 streetbikes while it tried to clear inventory in a depressed market. But for 2011, it’s rebounding in a big way with the revamped GSX-R600 and the GSX-R750.

2011 Triumph Sprint GT Review

Triumph has enlarged the waistline of its Sprint 1050cc Triple for 2011. The formerly designated Sprint ST (Sport Tourer) has now evolved into the 2011 Sprint GT (Grand Tourer). In becoming so, it delivers more cargo room and a plusher ride.
