McLaren’s first series-production High-Performance Hybrid supercar focuses more than half a century of the company’s racing and road-car experience and expertise into a next-generation supercar that blends ground-breaking technology with McLaren’s dedication to pure driver engagement.
In 2019 Suzuki took the bold move to release a new Suzuki Katana.
Katana is a legendary name is Suzuki’s history. Many of us of a certain age will remember the original Katana from the ’80s, a bike based on the GSX1100S, and there were some variants, one based on a GS550 for example.
Bringing out a new Katana was certainly a controversial move and one that divides opinion.
Our test car was the Citroen C5 Aircross Flair+. To help to keep you and your passengers safe you have features such as; Driver attention alert, Intelligent beam headlights (auto dipping main beams), Active cruise control (with Stop&Go function on EAT8 versions), Highway Driver Assist (on EAT8 versions), Extended Traffic Signs Recognition. Sounds good doesn’t it? Well, this is just for starters, you also have ;Active Safety Brake, Active Lane Departure Warning System, Coffee Break Alert. This is about as safe as cars get these days.
So is the DES 3 Crossback E-Tense La Prèmiere a winner for the new DS brand? Before you get hooked by the looks you need to live with a car and get to know its personality and the longer I spent with the new DS the more I liked it.
With the words of the Suzuki PR guy ringing in my ears “real men ride a Burgman…..” I jumped on the Suzuki Burgman 400 and with a twist of the throttle, I was on my merry way.
On the lead up to this review, I was a bit nervous about the image I would be sending out of me riding a 400cc maxi scooter. The PR guy told me he had one as his very own daily transport, and he’s a young, good looking, red-blooded male, he’s even raced a fair bit, so surely he must know what’s what.
The Africa Twin is a legend in its own lifetime. In 1986 Honda decided to tackle possibly the most arduous endurance race on the planet, the Dakar Rally (formerly the Paris–Dakar Rally). To do this, they built an exceptional and now legendary 1986 NXR750. The Africa Twin was born. This bike went on to win the Dakar 4 times in a row.
Honda capitalised on the Dakar bike by producing a road-going homage called the XRV650. It first appeared in 1988 as the 650cc XRV650, then in 1990 grew to 750cc as the XRV750 and was then discontinued in 2003.
I was immediately impressed as the Lexus LC500 Convertible was delivered to my door. It is more impressive, imposing and distinguished than in the images, with its own unique chutzpah.
A worthy successor to the LFA supercar that is now commanding a lot more interest than it did when launched. Some cars need time to be appreciated, often the sign of a labour of love.
You’ve probably noticed the surge in electric motorcycles, with new models popping up on a daily basis. One such model is this Horwin CR6.
What is the Horwin CR6? It’s a 6.2kw, retro-styled, commuter electric motorcycle.
Range, in my experience, is between 60-90 miles, but range is always difficult to talk about because it depends on how you ride, the conditions, the terrain and more.
