ITALIAN MOTOR is a, full colour, B5 digest size, independently published magazine that lives, breathes and is passionate about Italian motorcycles and motors: classics - some modern - vintage - specials - home built - cafe' racers - scooters - design - people - heritage - meets and events - racers - tests - products  and each issue features at least one special Italian car too. We pride ourselves on excellent journalism, and high quality and creative photography!!

For more than 20 years we’ve owned, crashed, rebuilt, photographed, and written about this stuff. We find them and ride them in Italy, speak to the people who love them, and source features on Italian machinery that’s ended up all over the world. We prefer older and unrestored, vintage and unrestored, patina and character, home built specials and raced, tuned or thrashed, but appreciate the brand new that is fantastic, and the shiny, restored or rebuilt too.

The magazine is a one-man operation, sometimes backed up by trusted and professional contributors. We are not a mass publisher and you won’t find the magazine on the shelves in news stores or book sellers. Our agenda is not set by advertisers or manufacturers, only what we want to feature! We try and publish an issue every three months, but it may take longer because it’s hard work on your own! Any questions? Just go to the ‘contact’ page and get in touch.
