Bike January 2022

Bike’s been road testing motorcycles for 50 brilliant years, and we do love a ‘road test special’. Lining up for scrutinization in the January issue are: Honda’s NT1100; Husqvarna’s Norden; Kawasaki’s Z650RS; Suzuki’s GSX-S1000GT; Aprilia’s Taureg and Ducati’s Multistrada V2. A cruiser group test keeps the tyres turning. Less road testy, but no less worth a read, are Mat Oxley’s interview with Alex Briggs (Rossi’s Mechanic for 21 years – he’s got a tale or three to tell), a deep dive into two-stroke engine tech and a circumnavigation of the UK by electric Zero. Finally, and with heavy hearts, we pay tribute to racing legend Paul Smart.
