Top 10 Best New Bikes of 2014


by Pascal Bastien , tested every new 2014 model available in Canada and crunched all the notes and numbers to bring you a list of the most impressive packages money can buy.

For the record, there were just over 20 new products in contention, with over half of the finalists originating from Germany, Italy, and Austria.

Without further ado, here are's top 10 best new bikes of 2014:

No. 10
2014 Honda CBR650F

This bike seems capable of anything, from everyday commuting to gentle cruising to spirited riding. What's more, it's just comfortable enough to go on long highway trips. Styling, fit, and finish are all worthy of a much bigger price tag, while riding dynamics are surprisingly good for such an affordable model. While the 4-cylinder engine lacks the low-end torque of 2- and 3-cylinder rivals, it's a bit punchier at higher revs in much the same way the CBR's RR are.

The new Honda CBR650F is a complete and utter success -- one of the best surprises of 2014.
