October 2018

Bike of the Year 2018

Fifty brilliant bikes ridden and ranked by a panel with 270 years’ riding between them. There can only be one winner. All will be revealed in this month’s issue of Bike.

Elsewhere in the mag this month, two superbike riders complete a 12,500-mile lap of Australia on a Kawasaki H2 and a Ducati Panigale and we go for a ride with Tony Campbell, the new boss of the Motorcycle Industry Association and chat about the future of biking.

We get our hands on the BMW Grand America K1600, Harley announce a new 18-bike line-up and Honda revive their 1961 monkey bike. 

Speaking of monkey bikes, we meet Molly and Georgia, a pair of biking novices who hired monkey bikes to cross Morocco alone and Peter Boast and Guy Martin use their Classic Suzuki to beat Team Bike to a place on the podium at The Biker’s Classic at Spa.

Plus there’s the usual 28-pages of Bike Know How featuring airbag suits explained, clothing and kit tested, MV Agusta buying advice and this year’s best used buys.
