‘Full of charm and good value’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature - JON URRY MCN CON­TRIB­U­TOR

Learn­ing about SWM’S var­ied model range was cer­tainly an eye-opener. The 650R su­per­moto is a bit too fo­cused for most, but the 440-en­gined bikes have real air-cooled retro ap­peal mated to very rea­son­able price tags. The build qual­ity seems ro­bust, and the styling is spot-on, com­plete with an ob­vi­ous dose of Ital­ian panache. They are never go­ing to be huge sell­ers, but those who opt for one are al­most guar­an­teed to fall for their unique charms. Faced with a Royal En­field or a SWM, I’d al­most cer­tainly go for the more ver­sa­tile, pow­er­ful, and bet­ter spec’d Ital­ian op­tions.
