Video: Ducati Diavel Cromo first ride

MCN, 06 September 2012 09:50

Ducati have thrown the parts catalogue at their new Diavel Cromo. At £15000 new for a standard Ducati Diavel, the Cromo has had over £7000 of Ducati Performance Parts and £3000 worth of Ohlins suspension thrown at it. But do the new parts really make it that much better? MCN Road Tester Michael Neeves takes it for a spin to ...

Video: 100 years of supersports

MCN, 04 September 2012 08:00

Middleweight sports bikes - usually of 600cc - have a history that goes back well beyond the first of the modern era, the Kawasaki GPz600R of 1985. In fact, the first sporty middleweight was built 100 years ago in 1912 and could hit 60mph. To chart the progress of 600s, MCN rides three milestone bikes from very three different generations - ...

Video: MV Agusta Brutale 675 onboard

MCN, 01 August 2012 12:15

The Triumph Street Triple is the UK’s favourite middleweight naked and increasingly the choice of bike for riders looking for performance and handling without the discomfort and commitment of a pure supersport middleweight. But MV Agusta’s new ‘entry level’ Brutale 675, also a triple, represents stiff competition for the ageing Triumph. Do we have a new class leader with the ...

Growing out of extreme sports road bikes, but unwilling to give up your mojo at the same time as your GSX-R? Ex-GP world champion Kevin Schwantz is your personal shopper. The 1993 500cc world champ has more riding talent in his little finger than the rest of us put together, but now he's also, like most of us, past his ...

Video: Extreme adventure test - part one

MCN, 11 June 2012 17:06

Four bikes. A Dakar hero. 100+ miles off-road. Just one question: can adventure bikes live up to their billing? We took the BMW R1200GS, Yamaha XT1200Z Super Tenere, Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200 and KTM 990 Adventure on an off-road adventure and to really test their abilities, we enlisted Stan Watt, who finished 34th in this year's Dakar Rally.  brightcove.createExperiences();

Video: Husqvarna TE310 longterm review

MCN, 08 June 2012 09:27

Based on the super-light TE250, the Husqvarna TE310 sits squarely between the 250 and the monstrous TE449. Husqvarna have bored and stroked the 250 engine ou tto 302.44cc to create a bike that is just as light as the 250, but with more torque making it easier to ride. While a 450 dirt bike can be a bit of an ...

Video: Barry Sheene and Kenny Roberts bikes ridden

MCN, 24 May 2012 11:23

The Barry Sheene bike we have here is a square-four 1975 Suzuki RG500 XR14. Sheene won his first ever GP on it and the '76 and '77 world championships. In the yellow corner is an inline-four-cylinder 1980 Yamaha YZR500 OW48R, ridden by three-time world champion 'King' Kenny Roberts, complete with two reverse cylinders (hence the 'R'). Both are excessively loud, smelly ...

Video: Ducati 1199 Panigale vs BMW S1000RR and Aprilia RSV4

MCN, 11 May 2012 15:46

It’s a sad fact for speed freaks that superbike sales have slipped in recent years, while things like naked and adventure bikes are on the up. So can one of the most exciting, talked-about motorcycles this year - the Ducati Panigale - reignite our passion for all things very fast? Ducati certainly hope so and have thrown the kitchen sink ...

Video: BMW C600 Sport and C650GT ridden

MCN, 22 March 2012 14:52

BMW's new C650GT and C600 Sport are the first £9.5k step-thrus, and though MCN's first ride proves their general competence, it's difficult to see how they're worth twice as much as BMW's own F650GS adventure bike. The two giant scooters have the same engine and chassis, but the GGT - for Gran Turismo - aims for touring comfort, with a ...

Video: Ducati 1199 Panigale RS

MCN, 09 March 2012 17:00

This is the Ducati 1199 Panigale RS, the bike which will be raced in the British Superbike championship in 2012. The Ducati 1199RS will be used by two BSB teams in 2012, Moto Rapido Racing and Jentin Doodson Motorsport. Ducati UK Managing Director Tim Maccabee said: "It is incredibly exciting to have the very first 1199 Panigale Superbikes arrive here ...
