It’s 2004 and the brakes on dutch Superstock champion Richard Fluttert’s GSX-R1000 have failed just before a heavy braking area, in this brilliant video found by Twowheelsblog. Skip to 2:13 and wait. Be nervous.  He was fine by the way.

Video: Harley backflip crew claim new 'globe of death' world first

Guy Procter, 04 January 2010 10:29

The Australians behind the world’s first Harley backflip show no sign of halting their campaign to get the Yankee iron doing everything its two-wheeled cousins can do... louder. Quick-Fix Harley Mildura Australia rider Steve Butler has successfully ridden a Harley-Davidson Sportster round an ironwork ‘globe of death’ (like a wall of death but completely spherical), completing the feet with spectacular aplomb. Sportster ...

Rossi’s brother v Rossi: compare and contrast

Guy Procter, 25 August 2009 15:22

Luca Marini is Rossi’s half-brother (they share a mum), and despite being separated by 18 years, the 12-year-old is following an eerily similar path to his brother. Luca talks exclusively to MCN of his racing, riding style and brotherly love in the 26 August issue.  But here’s some fascinating viewing. Luca says their riding styles are similar, but boy, that ...

Hear Harley-Ducati hybrid fire up

Guy Procter, 17 June 2009 13:51

You’re looking at an unholy union of Harley and Ducati. It’s called the Desmohog, and it mates 900SS heads with a Harley bottom end. It shouldn’t work, but genius hobbyist bike builder Chris Barber has made it work. The result sounds like a halfway-house between a Duke and a Harley – and we really, really dig it…

Electric Aprilia RS125 is the father of the TTX01

Guy Procter, 03 March 2009 15:13

The TTX01 could well be the most famous electric motorcycle in the world, following its promotional duties for this year’s world-first zero-emission motorcycle race. But it isn’t the first electric bike to come out of the Peacehaven Electric Vehicle Workshop. That honour goes to this kermit-green Aprilia RS125, with claimed performance comparable to the delicious petrol-power zinger itself.

BMW S1000RR a Yamaha R6 copy?

Guy Procter, 12 February 2009 12:11

Is the new BMW S1000RR a Yamaha R6 rip-off? YouTuber mca8690 certainly thinks so, and he’s gone to the trouble of producing this video to prove it. The S1000RR was spotted early in its development sporting modified R6 panels, which it wore ‘with space to spare’ according to BMW development boss Peter Mueller. We don’t agree with mca8690’s embittered suggestion the ...
