The BMW S1000R, pictured on the Great Ocean Road, Victoria (Photo: Chris Blain)

The S1000R might be 33 horsepower (25 kW) down on its S1000RR superbike brother, but it's vastly more aggressive, raw and challenging on the road. We spent 10 days with BMW's latest, greatest super-naked motorcycle, its bad-tempered hair-trigger throttle, its full suite of rider assist and comfort technologies, and one magnificent, beautiful thumbswitch that we hope to see a lot more of.  Read More

The Qudos Action light, mounted alongside a GoPro Hero 3 White edition camera

We've seen a plethora of accessories for the GoPro Hero actioncam cropping up over the past few years, including everything from stabilizers to drones to helmet-mounted poles. Surprisingly, though, except for scuba-specific models, there's been almost nothing in the way of lights. Australian bike gadget manufacturer Knog recently set out to fill that void, by releasing its Qudos Action light earlier this month. I recently had a chance to get my hands on the thing, and liked what it had to offer.  Read More

The PulseOn is a new heart-rate monitor fitness device

A new fitness device claims it will make heart rate monitoring easier than ever. The PulseOn is a wrist-worn device with an optical heart rate sensor and an accompanying mobile app to store and present data. Gizmag took it for a spin to see if its claim would stand up.  Read More

Pioneer released its SE-CX8 earbuds and SE-MX9 full-size headphones earlier this year (Pho...

Pioneer is no slouch when it comes to audio equipment. The firm is virtually synonymous with car audio whilst its mixers and CD decks are found in clubs the world over. I was excited, therefore, to be reviewing not one, but two sets of the company's newest and most high-end headphones.  Read More

Gizmag reviews HTC's new mid-ranged phablet, the Desire 816

But is a device that borrows the best from smartphone and tablet something that should be compromised on? Read on, as Gizmag reviews the HTC Desire 816.  Read More

After yesterday's relatively sober and serious look at Erik Buell's next Great American Sportsbike, it's time to have a little fun. Here's our video review of the EBR 1190RX.  Read More

The all-American sportsbike is back, and this time Erik Buell doesn't have a heritage cruiser company looking over his shoulder telling him how to build it. The 1190RX is the first mass-production sportsbike out of the new EBR factory in Wisconsin, a 185-horsepower, torque-stompin', slightly quirky racer with its eyes firmly focused on World Superbike contention. But does that equate to a good road bike? We spent a couple of weeks with the RX to find out.  Read More

The Backtracker handlebar unit indicates the position of the cyclist (green LED at top) an...

Earlier this month, we first heard about a radar system for cyclists, known as the Backtracker. In a nutshell, it emits radar pulses to the rear of the bike, then warns the rider when it detects vehicles approaching from behind. Although it's not yet commercially available, I recently had the chance to try out a pre-production review unit. It definitely shows promise, but could perhaps use one tweak.  Read More
