BMW's new HP4 is the first production motorcycle to feature semi-active suspension - its damping constantly changes as you ride. It's also a massive 9kg lighter than an equivalent S1000RR and has an even more refined traction control system, which can now be adjusted on the move. To find out what makes it tick, we rode the HP4 Carbon at the ...

Ducati have thrown the parts catalogue at their new Diavel Cromo.

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.

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 ...

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 ...
