Biog: Simon Hargreaves


Simon Hargreaves

In 1977, aged 9, Simon got a lift on his brother’s Suzuki AP50. He wrote about it the next day at school and, somehow, it turned into a career.

From Performance Bikes in its 1990s heyday to Bike magazine in its 2000s heyday, and from an Italjet Tiffany to Honda’s MotoGP RCV211V, Simon has ridden and written about almost every new bike of the last 25 years.

He’s still fascinated by the art, science and thrills of motorcycling, and still in awe of those who love it as much as he does. And he’s still riding and writing about bikes.
