Ride magazine March 2015 cover



High and low tech are both on display at their very best in the new issue of RiDE. We test the excellent new Ducati Scrambler, and find six ways to get similar retro thrills for even less money. And, at the other extreme, we find the best on-bike sat navs, and show in detail how to make the best use of them, whatever style of bike you ride.
Enjoy the issue

Features in this months' issue...

Cool & cheap

Retro and custom bikes are enjoying a big boom in popularity, and all too often that means high prices. Refreshingly, the excellent new Ducati Scrambler comes at a pretty good price. But we show how to find alternative retro road bikes for even less – how does £3000 sound?


2015 first rides

There’s a tide of promising new real-world road bikes heading this way, and in this issue we ride four of them: the top-value Yamaha MT-09 Tracer, the radically overhauled BMW R1200R, and both of Kawasaki’s updated adventure-style all-rounders, the 650 and 1000 Versys.


Bargain tourer

The 1300 version of Honda’s long-running Pan European is an accomplished two-up tourer that’s also quick and agile enough to be brilliant fun as an everyday bike. It can now be yours from just £4000. We show you how to find a good one.


Every month we offer you a great subscription offer; this month you can get a free Oxford magnetic tank bag worth £39.99 when you sign up to either the print or digital edition, or if digital is more your thing, check out the RiDE magazine app on the Apple Newstand, Google Play and Nook by Barnes and Noble.
