Husqvarna and Husaberg Re-United
Written by Paul Jennison   

Following the acquisition of Husqvarna by Pierer Industries, the Husqvarna and Husaberg brands are to reunite.

The new generation of Husqvarna models is already in progress.

A new model range, with new and exclusive designs and the latest technology is being developed and will be offered in the Enduro, Motocross and Sportminicycles segments.

There will also be newly developed products in the Supermoto segment, one in which Husqvarna has enjoyed a lot of success in in recent years.

The new line-up will be presented to the press in early October and to the public at the international EICMA show in Milan in early November.

As of October 2013, the new group company "Husqvarna Sportmotorcyle GmbH" based in Mattighofen, Austria, will be fully operational in the production and sale of the new model range to the Husqvarna network of dealers and distributors.

Reviewed-Continental Touring Pack
Written by Paul Jennison   

It’s the time of year when a lot of ABR’s are starting to prepare for trips across the English Channel for their summer continental tour.

Seasoned travellers will know about the ever changing laws across in Europe with regard to hi-viz and breathalyzers and may have gathered all they require to comply.


People contemplating their first sojourn maybe confused as to what they need and will be scouring the internet for the answers before they dash down to the local Halfords to collect a basket full of ‘stuff’ to add to their already overburdened panniers.

Reviewed: Pazzo replacement Brake and Clutch levers
Written by Paul Jennison   

I thought that fitting fancy levers was a thing for racers and for those who like to ‘farkle’ their bikes with every little modification and bit of bling that there is available.

But having fitted a pair of Pazzo levers to my bike I now know that they are far from being just bling.

The standard levers are a bit of a stretch for me and can make brake and clutch control a bit ‘hit and miss’, especially in traffic when I just want to feather the clutch and brake to filter carefully through the lines of stationary cars.

Advertising Feature: Are you properly protected?
Written by Amber Howard   

Many dream of a motorcycle holiday because of the freedom it promises, you can simply hop on a bike any time and ride off into the sunset, with only enough to fill your tank bag.

However, when you really start to plan and research the trip it can become more complicated and quite confusing. For a standard holiday abroad you would simply invest in travel insurance for yourself and your possessions; however on a biking trip you also want to make sure your bike is protected too, and that you’re covered for biking.
