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 ...

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();

Video: Mickey Rourke's custom ridden

MCN, 23 July 2012 09:31

American custom builder Roland Sands is a curious mix of top level racer and world class fabricator, and his bikes follow that route - they're often beautiful to behold, yet outrageously fast. Sands was the man who turned a Ducati Desmosedici into a dirt tracker. His latest creation, a Harley-Davidson Softail, has been bought by grizzled Hollywood star Mickey Rourke.

Video: Schwantz's post-sports bike picks

MCN, 19 July 2012 10:17

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: Smart money superbikes

MCN, 20 June 2012 15:34

The 1000cc sports bike class has ripped in two and there are now two distinct camps. In the ‘extreme’ corner there’s the super-powerful, electronically-enhanced superbikes, like the Aprilia RSV4, BMW S1000RR, Ducati Panigale and Kawasaki ZX-10R. Over in the other is the new Fireblade, GSX-R1000 and R1. These much-loved Japanese machines are the old guard and have all been worthy ...

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 ...
