Adam Child, 27 September 2012 14:30

Ducati’s Multistrada 1200 revolutionised the adventure bike class when it was introduced in 2010. Its sporty mix of 150bhp (derived from its 1199-derived V-twin), combined with high tech gizmos and real world comfort and usability proved a winning combination with over 20,000 examples sold worldwide so far. Three years on, Ducati is aiming to keep the Multistrada ahead of the ...

Video: KTM 690 Duke longterm update

MCN, 30 July 2012 10:30

After 2000 miles with the new KTM 690 Duke, MCN's Liam Marsden gives us a quick update on his year so far. The Duke is spot on for commuting and hammering down twisty country roads, where bigger, more powerful bikes would struggle. If you want a pure, no-nonsense bike, the 690 Duke should be top of your list. brightcove.createExperiences();

MV Agustas for £5000. Bargain or baloney?

MCN, 08 June 2012 16:24

For anyone less than a die-hard fan, MV Agustas can be confusing. They’ve been around seemingly unchanged for years and there are a bewildering amount of different F4s and Brutale models to choose from. These gorgeous Italian-built bikes are full of contradictions as well. Once upon a time they were the leaders on the track in the hands of legends ...

Aprilia SRV850 first ride: "like something made as a dare"

Steve Farrell, 15 March 2012 09:48

The new Aprilia SRV850 is the most powerful scooter yet - and nearly £2000 cheaper than BMW's C650 GT. The SRV850 is a restyled and re badged Gilera GP800 with the same chassis and 839cc V-twin engine. Aprilia says there have been 250 tweaks, including to the suspension and engine, resulting in sportier handling and marginally more power - 76bhp ...

The Triumph can't compete with the tecnology of the F3, but it does come with Ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes and a quickshifter. To find out which is ...

Video: Suzuki V-Strom takes on rivals

MCN, 23 September 2011 09:30

The new Suzuki V-Strom already impressed MCN when we rode it at the launch. The replacement of the bike's old SV650 motor with a new Gladius-derived unit, a full restyle and lashings of extra refinement moved the V-Strom up to a new level. But our test shows that, despite Suzuki's best efforts, it still falls short of the powerful, more ...
