Highlighting the issue is a review of the Honda F6B, Honda's 'badass bagger'. With a shorty windscreen, long, sweeping profile and fantastic handling to go along with a formidable 1,832 cc flat six engine, has Honda transformed the Gold Wing into yet another sales success?
The Ducati Diavel Strada also gets a full review in this issue. The Strada is the touring version of the Diavel, Ducati’s ‘power cruiser’ (or whatever you want to call it), and it scored high marks for comfort, engine performance and handling… and you can read all about it in the May issue, available now.
This issue also puts a wrap on our 2014 buyers’ guides. We’ve got all the sport, streetfighter, naked, standard and retro/classic motorcycles in Canada listed over nine pages, rounding out three issues worth of guides that included cruisers, touring and dual sport/adventure bikes.
Also in this issue, Montreal's Dave Lemke reports from his current home in Vietnam about a thrilling adventure he took on an old Russian Minsk motorcycle into the mountains of southeast Asia.
