‘No other type of motorcycle offers the same feeling’

We’ve had a great time putting together our naked-bike special in this issue — simply because when it comes to riding, no other motorcycle offers the same wind-in-your-face, bugs-in-your-teeth experience.

Of course, there are bikes that go further, go faster and are more comfortable over distance — but the sense of fun on a fairing-free bike is second to none and the diverse mix of bikes is astounding. Right now, I don’t know whether to sign up for an MT-10 SP with a big dealer discount or plump for something lovely from our used guide. You’ll feel the same.

Talking of used bikes, in the refreshed RiDE magazine you’ll find more than ever before. Buying a machine — new or used — is one of the most exciting, but sometimes stressful, things we do as bikers and the new RiDE is designed to assist by giving you the info you need to get a great deal and buy a cracker.

Enjoy the mag
