    When I had a chance to try out the Ducati Multistrada Pikes Peak last year I was incredibly impressed, the concept of four bikes in one is bandied about quite commonly when referring to the Multistrada and is a good reflection of the bike’s abilties. The current Multistrada is a large bike with a wet weight of 235kg - relatively light all things considered. I found the seat height tall, although it is adjustable between 825 and 845mm and couldn’t get both feet flat to the ground, but balance and low speed maneuvering were both very good. Heated grips of a chilly morning are priceless and the centre-stand is a nice touch, although probably not for everyone. They are part of the Touring pack which includes heated grips, panniers and center-stand. The Multistrada S benefits from the Ducati Skyhook Suspension and also includes a few nifty additional features like full LED headlamps, including the Ducati Cornering Lights (DCL). The braking systems on the S is also an upgraded Superbike spec system, with M50 Brembo front calipers on 330mm rotors, with a dual piston Brembo rear caliper on 265mm rotor. Also standard is the Ducati Multimedia System, which uses Bluetooth to accept incoming calls, alert you to messages and control your music, when synced with your other devices, displayed via the S’s full colour TFT display. On the bike, performance from the DVT Testastretta starts low and tractor-like, with strong but controllable low end-torque, and between 4000 and 5000rpm transforms into sportsbike like drive - in fact if you want to move off in a hurry try opening that throttle wide open, it’s exhilarating. Just keep the revs up past 4000rpm where it transitions into much smoother running, with slight vibes felt through the ‘bars, but not in an annoying fashion - you’ll have all the torque you could wish for, for rapid overtaking or acceleration. You can also modify each of the riding modes for a variety of settings, where I was using the baseline settings, which means you can have each mode set up for specific conditions, whether that’s suspension, power delivery, ABS, DTC or DWC. The Skyhook Suspension was a standout and in Sport mode with one helmet (the one rider, no luggage setting) I could feel the forks providing more support during heavy braking, only to soften as I came to a stop. Through the local twisties the Skyhook suspension proved itself, with an ability to easily absorb road irregularities. Coming into corners needs more effort than your regular sportsbike, with the Multistrada obviously carrying its weight taller and taking more input to follow your chosen path. It wasn’t the sharpest on tip in, with the standard settings - but that’s something you can tweak thanks to the level of adjustability on offer. The taller bike also means you’re leaning over further, which was easy and confidence inspiring but lends itself to coming into your corners nice and wide.You can feel that you’re relying on a system of suspension that essentially has a mind of its own but as you get used to that fact and show more confidence in the bike it only gets better and better. Part of what sets the newest Skyhook Suspension (DSS) system apart is the Evo suffix, with the previous sensors now joined by the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) which is used to provide cornering ABS to the Brembo braking system with Bosch 9ME ABS unit. This means the DSS Evo system is able to take into account your lean angle when calculating the ideal suspension response. It’s high tech and the results on the road speak for themselves. I was hoping to take my wife for a ride as a pillion to get an opinion on riding two-up, but with all my testing mid-week unfortunately couldn’t make it happen. Now it’s quite possibly you’re thinking to yourself, why spend the extra $4000 on the S model, which is a fair question. The S is the obvious choice though, as the Multistrada truly is many bikes in one, with the S offering the ultimate in suspension adjustability at the click of a few buttons. It’s the future of motorcycling and Ducati’s leading the charge.
  • Life in the old dog yet....

    It might not be as light on its feet as its newer rivals, but Yam’s smooth, secure, comfy FJR1300 is still a valid tourer. Updates a couple of years back - multi-function dash, flashy finish, better suspension, high-tech options - added class, and for ’16 there’s more refinement. It’s got a six-speed gearbox at last, for both better acceleration and more relaxed cruising, plus an ‘assist and slipper’ clutch based on the R1’s system. Got LED lights too and a matt silver paint option, plus AE/AS versions have cornering lights.

    A stunningMoto Guzzi V8 works racer replica looks certain to steal the show at Coys sale at theMCNLondonMotorcycle Show at Excel on February 13. The bike was built in the early 2000s by ex-factory technicians with access to original drawings and spares to use as patterns to make new components. Coys haven’t provided an estimate but, with only two original V8 racers existing, the parade-ready replica should attract a three-figure sum. Other bikes from the same Italian collection to be offered at Excel include a gorgeous 1957 Ducati 125cc Bialbero racer (estimate ?65,000-70,000), a rare 1955 100cc Cecatto Bialbero racer (?29,000-35,000), a 1938 250cc Benelli Bialbero race bike (?48,000-52,000) and a 1931 1300cc Indian Type 402 four, fully restored in 2010 with minimal mileage since (?55,000-65,000). Entries for the capital’s only motorcycle-only sale scheduled for 2016 are still open and the catalogue - which will be available on January 25 - closes on January 19. Entry fees are ?350 per bike and buyers’ and sellers’ commission is set at 10% plus VAT. Over 100 lots are promised for the sale, which starts at 2.30pm on Saturday February 13 (viewing from February 12). Potential vendors contact Anthony Godin (07854 213928 or 0208 614 7888).

  • 2015 Honda Fit
    The Fit has an interesting chassis for a cheap stuff shuffler. The body roll of the car is minimum, and the dual path suspensions provide linear compression under normal loading. They sort of blow-off function that puts to use a secondary valve to allow quicker compression when encountering sharp hits, keeping the body of the vehicle under strong control even after encountering a bump under normal conditions. Without the interesting Fit Sport's rear anti-roll bar, the 2015 model is not quite a neutral affair, but very closes enough to fun, and certainly close to none of the cars that offer the Fit like interior feel of the vehicle at good price. ...see full review

  • 2014 Bentley Continental G8 VT S
    When people try to come up with quotes like ‘old is gold' and ‘practice makes a man perfect', there's just one car that comes to everybody's mind: Bentley Continental GT V8 S. Continental GT has been an iconic car from the house of Bentley for past couple of decades and Bentley has never stopped surprising people and making cars look and perform better and better every year. The new Bentley Continental GT V8 is an ironclad example of just that. It might not be the Woolf Barnato model of cars, but nevertheless it's still iconic, and yet so sophisticated. Powered by a V8 twin 4 liter engine instead of Bentley's traditional W12 twin engine, it shows style with a difference! ...see full review

  • 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe
    A spacious front seat. Front-seat space is better than that of the previous model. Let see how it is better: If we talk about the headroom space then the Headroom is up over an inch and a half, so that plenty of air can be there now, eventhough you go for a car that has a sunroof; The design of this model can be said to be taken from the Silverado's switchgear, but in totality design is entirely new; The features of the instrument and the gauges are simple and easy to read, though it starts directly from the pick-up; Along with all these you have a 4.2-inch digital display between the instruments in this Chevrolet model, which has been set there to show trip-computer and infotainment data, and also to adjust vehicle settings, and it is also present to display speed; The gauge pod which is wrapped quite vinyl, gives the gauge pod an elegant look, but if it is real wood that you want in your GM bus, ten it is better to shop at the GMC store, as because in such a case Chevy only offers stuffs which are fake; There are certain things that have remained unchanged and one among them is that the 116.0-inch wheelbase which has remains unchanged from that of the previous generation, and also the rear-seat space and legroom haven't grown much, if being compared with the previous generation model; In certain cases more space has been provided to the front-seat backrests which are sculpted out to provide more kneeroom, and the rear door openings are larger. But how can believe in this fact? Well for this reason Chevy has accomplished it by moving the B-pillar forward, thus making it easier for anyone climb in and out with some semblance of grace; The third row has not changed much if one compares it with last Tahoe. Therefore the SUV still has the high floor to clear the space for the solid rear axleand it is necessary. The third-row bench has a fixed seatback angle which is not very comfortable for the adults. The cargo space of this Chevy model can be said to have a floor which is high enough,so that one can easily tuck a spare tire underneath the Tahoe. The LTZ model that is being drove by the Chevy aauthority which shows that the Tahoe has a power automatic folding row in the third and there is a captain's chairs in the second you have a seat that can be flip and that which also can be fold is there, and it is very good feature without any doubt. ...see full review
