Motorcycle Trader

Issue 356

Australian Motorcycle Trader provides an informed assessment of the latest models as well as pre-owned favourites; product tests; Buyers’ Guides; Australia's largest Classifieds listing; industry news, favourite motorcycling roads; technical articles; targeted event coverage; news from around the globe; and ‘How To’ features on anything and everything to do with two wheels, and in some cases three. Quality pre-owned bikes are in increasingly high demand, and values of collectable bikes from the ‘70s and ‘80s continue to rise. Entry-level riders are discovering the joys of motorcycling for the first time, and cashed-up Babyboomers are buying motorcycles and aftermarket accessories in ever-increasing numbers. Australian Motorcycle Trader covers all this and more with some of Australia’s most experienced motorcycle experts on its team. Jump on board for The Ride of Your Life.

WHAT A CHAMPION You probably don’t need your favourite motorcycle magazine pointing out the widespread – and ongoing – devastation from this season’s bushfires. It’s truly awful. Some of you may have been directly affected or know people who have been. On behalf of everybody here at MT, our thoughts are with you. We’re working on doing more, too. As motorcyclists and a brother/ sisterhood of riders, there are a few things we can all do that others perhaps can’t. Many local clubs, dealers, businesses and Facebook groups are organising group rides to raise funds for various fire-relief charities and organisations in need of support and donations. Many of the rides are even heading straight to bushfire-affected areas to help rebuild and tip some much-needed money back into the local economies. All…

sales slide in 2019

KTM and Husqvarna were the only brands in 2019 with good news when it came to road bike sales, a segment of which shrunk by almost 12 per cent (31,981 units versus 36,308 in 2018). The Austrian brand sold 467 units of its mid-size 790 Adventure R – which arrived in June – ahead its strong-selling 390 Duke and RC390 learner bikes for an 18 per cent growth in road bike sales. The top-seller in the adventure-touring category was the Suzuki DR650SE (497 units, -13.4%), ahead of BMW’s popular R 1250 GS (387 units). Husqvarna, meanwhile, stimulated sales of its growing road bike range by slashing a whopping $8200, or 63 per cent, from its sharply styled Vitpilen 701, which now retails for $8795 (plus on-road costs). New motorcycle sales overall continued a…

beast of both worlds

Have you ever done something so well that you wonder what you can possibly improve? No, neither have I. But this kind of situation could’ve been very real for the Triumph engineers who sat down to develop the 2020 Street Triple RS. The problem is, the 2019 RS is very hard to fault. Since it was launched as an all-new model in 2018, it’s proven to be a light, balanced and competent street bike like its predecessors, but with a larger 765cc Moto2-developed engine and a new-found level of specification, fit and finish. For those reasons and more, the RS has quickly become the middleweight of choice for anyone who wanted a naked bike that can more than hold its own on the track, Cam, Charris and yours truly included. So where…

second ops

CAM Our shared daily ride was a Street Triple 675 R for years. Suspension was firm for Kaz’s light weight but, apart from that, it was brilliant. Looking forward to trying this... CHARRIS It strikes a fine balance between power and agility. Yep, I’d buy a Street Triple in a heart beat. GUIDO Mid-sized weapon with all the right gear? Yes please, but can I get a second licence with that? GROFF The RS is like an ‘all you can eat’ buffet – you know the R version will be filling enough but you can’t stop yourself going back for more.…
