AJS Model 18
The quintessential English post-war heavyweight single. Matchless G80 owners and fans can check this guide too.
The shock of seeing an AJS badge on a cheep Chinese import has for most of us worn off. But the intended motorcycle learner market that this bike is designed for won't much care. The future, after all, starts now.
AJS Tempest Scrambler
If you can't see the appeal of this bike, you're just not looking hard enough. In our youth, we would have lusted after this pseudo off-roader. And even now, there's a distinct twitching in the loins.
AJS Tempest Roadster
It's cheap. It's cheerful. It's classically styled. And it's Chinese built. This reworking of the 125cc AJS Cadwell is aimed at the 17-year old market. But does it have any appeal beyond that?

Harley-Davidson VRSC V-Rod
When you absolutely have to have a two-wheeled state-of-the-art hot rod with a Harley-Davidson badge on the tank, there's only one place to go, and that's the divisive V-Rod. We love it. We hate it. And we love it all over again.
Harley-Davidson VRSCF V-Rod Muscle
If it ain't broke, why fix it? To make it even less broke, of course. That's always been Harley's philosophy. For 2014, the factory did a little cutting, did a little smoothing, and put a different shine on what has become a very successful Hog. They call it the muscle. We call it another result.
