Norton TT Racer On The Road

You can’t underestimate how hard it is to compete at the Isle of Man TT. It’s a mammoth task, and it’s almost impossible to convey with mere words the sheer scale of the mountain they have climbed, figuratively, and over the top of the island. But forget about the riding for a second; the logistics, planning and organisation alone are ...

Yamaha YZF-R125 quick ride

Yamaha knows how to play the 125cc field. Since the launch of the YZF-R125 in ’08, the firm has sold over 45,000 machines and the sports bike remains a best seller to this day. The revamped 2014 YZF-R125’s main changes are sturdier USD forks and quality brakes. The difference is certainly noticeable as the refreshed model can take a heavier ...

Yamaha MT-125 first ride

The new Yamaha MT-125 marks the third arrival in the MT family. The single-cylinder is technically a naked version of Yamaha’s refreshed-for-2014 YZF-R125 except with an upright riding position and street fighter design, taking its styling cues from its MT-09 and 07 siblings. So we have an already great bike, peppered with upgraded components, for less money than the faired ...

Ducati 1199 Superleggera, First Ride

Dripping in magnesium, carbon fibre and titanium, and boasting the highest power-to-weight ratio of any production bike, the 200bhp, 155kg 1199 Superleggera is the most exclusive Ducati ever built. Only 500 will be made and they're all sold already, but we managed to grab one to ride at Mugello, the bike's spiritual home.   brightcove.createExperiences();

Video: Honda VFR800 first ride

The V4 VFR was one of Honda's most respected bikes of the 80s and 90s until it somehow went wrong with the VTEC version in 2002. So this surprise and mostly all-new VFR800F has raised both anticipation and scepticism in equal measure. MCN got a world first ride to see if it's worthy of the name. brightcove.createExperiences();

Video: Triumph Thunderbird LT group test

With the arrival of Triumph’s new ‘LT’ bagger version of its Thunderbird cruiser, never before have there been so many, truly credible alternatives to the all-dominant Harley-Davidson Road King. Moto Guzzi unveiled its hugely-impressive, all-new California 1400T in 2012, while the biggest threat of all to Harley, Indian, returned in the middle of last year with its own impressive offerings. ...

Video: MT-09 Group Test

At £6799, Yamaha's three-cylinder MT-09 promises super naked thrills and supersport speed, but at a budget commuter price. But how close is it really to any of them? To find out, we put it through a multi-disciplined test against typical examples of each, around town, down motorways, along backroads and even on track.)
