Ducati 848 Evo Corse first ride

Adam Child, 22 March 2012 12:08

Today, machines such as the Triumph Daytona 675R and the MV Agusta F3 have brought a new dimension to middleweight supersports machines. And with this new 848 Evo Corse Ducati is both following in the footsteps of the previous 748 and 749 and promising to move things up a notch further still. In short, the limited edition Evo comes with all ...

2012 Aprilia Dorsoduro ridden

Adam Child, 19 March 2012 15:49

Aprilia’s revised exotic Dorsoduro 1200 has lost weight, gained some Italian ponies and now has a three-way traction control as standard. If you thought the Supermoto scene was drying up you’d be wrong. Aprilia are seven times world supermoto champions, and the Dorsoduro has been a success story since its launch in 750 format back in 2008. It’s Aprilia’s third best-selling ...

BMW R1200GS Rallye first ride

Adam Child, 08 March 2012 17:34

It's been a long time coming, but if any bike's deserving of a commemorative special edition model surely it's the BMW R1200GS. The class-defning German adventure bike has been a market leader throughout all its guises since the original and radical-for-the-time R80G/S of 1980. To celebrate that, and no doubt to encourage more sales of the current, ageing version before ...

2012 KTM 990 Adventure first ride

Adam Child, 10 February 2012 11:29

If this KTM Adventure 990 looks familiar then that’s entirely deliberate – but this is no limited edition ‘Dakar’ version, as debuted last Spring, nor the full-blown ‘R’ version – it’s the standard 2012 Adventure which, like its R brother, boasts a host of modifications and improvements for this year, before an all-new model is expected in 2014. In a ...

Kawasaki Versys 1000 delivers more for your money

Adam Child, 08 December 2011 10:08

So does a four-cylinder adventure bike make any sense? On the strength of our world first ride of Kawasaki’s pioneering, Z1000-based Versys 1000, the answer is ‘Yes’… and ‘No’… The Versys 1000 has a superbly smooth and tractable engine, class-leading traction control, all-day comfort, and is the cheapest bike in its class. But its looks are controversial and I was ...

Rieju MRT 125LC Pro SM: Hottest ever learner supermoto

Adam Child, 04 November 2011 09:41

Rieju say this new Yamaha-powered 125 is the ultimate Supermoto 125, and have even given it the code name 'Duke Killer', referring to KTM's new 125 Duke. In terms of performance, Rieju have a point. The SM is a riot to ride and exceeds the KTM in almost every performance category. But it's considerably less refined than the 125 Duke, ...

Fully updated Kawasaki ER-6n sets new standard

Adam Child, 21 October 2011 11:29

When we learnt that Kawasaki wasn't just giving its popular ER6 range a slight update for 2012 but was almost completely revising them, first we wondered if it was strictly necessary. After all, both ERs (n for naked, f for faired) were already among the best middle-weight twins. Then, on seeing the bikes and realising how similar they looked to ...

Ducati 848 Challenge blog: Silverstone

Adam Child, 28 September 2011 12:30

I couldn’t turn down racing in the 848 Challenge at Silverstone in front of packed BSB crowd but it was a baptism of fire, thrown in at the deep end learning a new track and new bike, but great fun. First practice didn’t really go to plan, I wasn’t clicking with the 848 and was still learning the huge 3.6 ...

Which used superbike for under £5000?

Adam Child, 25 August 2011 12:55

With the advent of electronics and near-200bhp power outputs, it's easy to forget just how good the sports bikes of 2005 were. They had huge power - up to around 160bhp - yet were tractable in the midrange, were designed to accomodate regular-sized human beings and didn't electronically slap your wrist if you pulled a cheeky wheelie. The best bit ...

Kawasaki VN1700 Voyager takes on the baggers

Adam Child, 25 August 2011 11:01

The imposing bulk of Kawasaki's new VN1700 Voyager Custom has just landed on UK soil, sending a shudder through the large touring cruiser market. But how scared should the American competition be of the new V-twin? MCN embarked on two days of summer touring to find out, heading north from Peterborough then criss-crossing Yorkshire before ending in historic York. All ...
