In a bid to move away from pollution charging zones, Conservative officials have suggested that the speed limit on some sections of the UK’s motorway network could benefit from a reduction to 60mph.
According to The Telegraph, the suggested reduction in the motorway speed limit isn't a money making scheme targeting motorists, but rather a move to tackle air pollution.
KTM's updated two-stroke and four stroke 2018 motocross lineup will be arriving in UK dealers as of this month.
The KTM 85 SX for junior riders comes in at 0.69 kg lighter than the previous model, with improved power and rideability throughout the complete RPM range. That's thanks to a lighter subframe and lighter chassis with a revised chromium molybdenum steel frame as crafted by WP Performance Systems.
Joining the KTM 50 SX and KTM 65 SX in KTM’s READY TO RACE series, the KTM 85 SX is fitted with high-quality Formula brakes, WP AER 43 forks and a specifically developed WP Xplor progressive damping system (PDS) shock absorber.
In the adult range the KTM 125 SX and KTM 150 SX now feature new aluminum head stays, as well as a new CDI control unit for improved starting behaviors.

Masaru Abe is the self-styled Japanese Wheelie King, who has smashed the world record for the longest continuous wheelie.
He was up on one wheel for a jaw dropping 500.5322km in a bid that took him an astounding 13 hours, five hours longer than it took him to surpass the previous record, 331.0195km.
He began experiencing back pain just two hours into the ride, as I'm sure any of us would, but that didn't stop this nutter. He spent most of the last hour screaming in pain, but persevered to break the 500km mark. Respect and just a little fear of a man who can do that.
On the 5th-7th May, we are heading to South Wales for this year's Ducati's Multistrada 1200 Enduro Experience.
Fifteen off-road and ten on-road prepared Multistrada Enduro motorcycles are being made available to test, with four DRE instructors led by Dakar rider Beppe Gualini teaching just what it takes to be an off-road pro.
The Multistrada 1200 Enduro Experience is part of the Touratech Travel event in Ystradgynlais, near Swansea. It's the first time the event is taking place outside of Italy.
The DRE team will be setting up “portable facilities” to replicate the DRE Enduro environment to include but not limited to: Slalom Balance beam Emergency brake Steps Tòle ondulèe Uphills and Downhills Balance exercise Off-road track.
The course is suitable for all, from beginners who want to gain confidence and control of the bike in conditions with low grip, to the more experienced enduro rider who wants to learn from the experience of top riders and try out riding techniques with the new Multistrada 1200 Enduro. We'll see in which category we fall for this one.
The experience lasts 45-60 minutes, using the specially designed off road track and portable facilities and then a road demo exploring the local countryside and using the bike to its full road potential.
