Honda announce updated line-up for 2016
Written by Rob Slade   

Honda has announced a range of upgrades of three of its crossover-styled ‘X’ models for 2016 including the CB500X, NC750X and their range-topping VFR1200X Crosstourer.

The news comes as anticipation grows for the new CRF1000L Africa Twin (release date to be confirmed) following further details and a new interactive video giving the best look yet at the long-awaited machine.

Of course, it’s worth remembering that Honda offer other bikes in the adventure and touring sectors and it is now clear that these models are also facing upgrades, just on a slightly lesser scale then the Africa Twin. Find out everything you need to know by clicking 'read more' below.

BMW S1000XR Vs Ducati Multistrada 1200S
Written by Rob Slade   

As a raft of exciting new metal in showrooms fall on the sportier side of the adventure sector it’s clear that adventure sports bikes are answering the needs of many.

Countless riders who are perhaps trading in their sports bike for something that delivers similar performance with the added bonus of increased comfort and practicality have seen sports bikes such as the Yamaha Tracer move quickly up the sales rankings.

It’s understandable why too. Those who have no off-road aspirations can enjoy the same comfortable seating position and added features of an adventure bike while still keeping hold of exceptional speed and handling. So how do two of the biggest players in this market stack up against each other? ABR has a look...

Everything you need to know about riding in Cambodia
Written by S P Lebombwe   

Cambodia has become a hot destination for adventure riders in recent years and for good reason too. The locals are exceptionally welcoming, the weather is fairly reliable during the non-monsoon months and there are so many options of graded red dirt roads and serious single lane jungle tracks.

The result? A riding destination that is unsurpassed for that absolute feeling of freedom you get when riding the exhilarating trails that the Kingdom of Wonder has to offer.

But how does someone go about heading out on an epic Cambodian adventure? We spoke to self-confessed Buddhist dirt biker and organiser of The Red Dirt Tour, Tim Highfield (a.ka. Red Leader) from Mototrails Ltd to find out more.

Watch: Interactive video gives best look yet at Honda Africa Twin
Written by Rob Slade   

Honda has released several new videos giving us the best look yet at the new CRF1000L. The main one is an interactive video which allows the user to forge their own path of exploration on the Africa Twin.

The video is made up of various passages of footage showing the bike on a range of different surfaces and it's clear that Honda have created the motorcycle with a large focus on its off-road ability – something that is sure to please a lot of you. Expect different conditions such as sand dunes, mountains, forest tracks and the open road. You can check out the video by clicking the 'read more' button below.

GIVI reveal new waterproof luggage

Italian motorcycle accessory manufacturer GIVI has launched a new range of waterproof “containers” that have been designed for the motorcycle traveller looking for an intelligent luggage handling solution.

The new 'Storm' bags have been created primarily to be used alongside the aluminium Trekker Outback pannier cases, however they can also be used on the bike separately, or even off the bike due to the inclusion of a shoulder strap. Click the 'read more' button for the full details.

Warmthru announce new heated motorcycle vest and gloves
Written by Rob Slade   

As the nights draw in and a brisk chill starts to fill the air, it’s time to prepare ourselves for winter. For some that means locking the bike away in the garage while waiting for better weather, but for others it means donning their winter gear and hitting the road.

Well, for those of you that fall into the latter category, you may just be interested to hear that Warmthru have introduced some new heated products to their range. Perhaps winter won’t be so bad after all?

Watch: Moto GP rider headbutts seagull during Australian Grand Prix

While not strictly having anything to do with adventure motorcycling, there was no way we could let this one pass under the radar. During yesterday's Australian Grand Prix a seagull met a dismal end after being headbutted – yes, headbutted – by race leader Andrea Iannone as he took a corner.

5 things you need to know about the Suzuki V-Strom 650XT
Written by Rob Slade   

Earlier this year we were in Ireland for the launch of the Suzuki V-Strom 650XT, and while there weren’t huge changes to the original edition which came beforehand, there was plenty to offer pause for thought.

Touting a 645cc, 4 stroke, liquid-cooled V-Twin engine, the V-Strom sits firmly in the middle-range of adventure styled motorcycles and it certainly has a lot to offer. It looks good (in our humble opinion), rides well and is a more-than-capable steed for pretty much any use you may require.

So, let’s get down to the nitty gritty shall we? Here are five things you need to know about the Suzuki V-Strom 650XT.

The ABR guide to the highest passes in the Republic of Ireland
Written by Geoff Hill   

Here at ABR we love a decent mountain pass... Stunning scenery, a mix of corners and less frustrating traffic clogging up the roads. There’s just something much more mesmerising about riding at altitude rather than being on the flat.

In honour of that fact, ABR teamed up with TomTom in issue 29 (Jul/Aug) in an effort to reveal the three highest passes in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

Subsequently, we believe we may have inadvertently created a British road trip of epic proportions. It would be rude to keep it to ourselves, so we thought we’d share them all with you. Without further delay, here are the highest (and some of most incredible) passes in the Republic of Ireland.

Video of the week: Riding across Nepal on a 250cc Bajaj Pulsar
Written by Rob Slade   

While riding through places like Nepal on a motorcycle isn't exactly a new concept, doing so on a Bajaj Pulsar street motorcycle seems like a pretty epic way to do so. Well, that's exactly what adventure motorcyclist and YouTube sensation Alex Chacón finds himself doing.

Riding from Kathmandu to Pokhara and then south to the border with India, he travels through the muddiest, most remote parts of Nepal. Along the way he meets the locals, gets lost, dodges huge trucks and deals with the nature of riding on extremely rough terrain on nothing more than a 250cc street bike.
