November 2018

If the British-built creations we’ve ridden this month are any indication of what this country is still capable of producing, we may yet emerge from the Brexit process in decent shape... A few laps on Triumph’s development mule for their 2019 Moto2 control motor was all it took for Johnny to practically insist they take the short step further by turning it into a road bike: the lightly-tuned 765 motor in a Daytona chassis felt so close to the big-bore Triumph supersport bike we've been hoping for, it’d be criminal not to offer one. For the first time, they said they might do it, too... Of course, they're already building some great sports weapons: the Speed and Street Triple RS models are great road bikes, and

surprisingly tough customers in the fast group, too.

Michael Rutter was tasked with finding out whether torque or agility makes for the fastest Brit supernaked. And while the XSR900 is technically Japanese, Hag Hughes’ 900LC is a very British creation, and very fine it is, too. See it inside this month's issue.
