Most important motorcycle tool

Victorinox Cybertool M tool

What is the most important tool any motorcycle rider can cary with them?

We’ll cheat and say a multi-tool such as a Victorinox Swiss Army knife.

Apart from having a number of useful functions, the tool is small and conveniently folds up into a shape that should not cause any injury to you in a crash, even if you carry it in your jacket pocket.

We have featured Victorinox products before as they are made of quality material and are built to last.

One of their latest is the Cybertool M ($235) which has 32 functions in a medium pocket knife size. Victorinox took the traditional Officer’s knife functions and added tools like a bit wrench to match new standards in the electronics industry.

It’s only 91mm long and weighs just 153g, but packs a hefty number of tools and features, including Combi-pliers.

So there shouldn’t be too many roadside maintenance jobs you can’t perform with this tool.

You can even take notes with the pressurised ballpoint pen!

Cybertool M multi tool features

Large and small blades; reamer, punch and sewing awl; can opener; mini, 3mm and 6mm screwdrivers; bottle opener; wire stripper; key ring; toothpick; tweezers; stainless steel pin; pliers; wire cutters; wire crimper; scissors; multipurpose hook; corkscrew; slotted 4mm bit; three Phillips bits; three Torx bits; bitwrench; 4mm and 5mm female Hex drive for bits and D-SUB connectors and a Hex 4 bit.

The various bits come in a special fold-out case.


  1. The problem with multi tools like these is unless you’re macgyver who could machine a crank shaft with one it seems they’re next to useless for doing anything that may need doing on a bike. Short of undoing a screw to change a light globe or cutting some rope to tie down a load the most useful thing they can do is open a beer bottle.
