Staff Blog: Victory Judge gets rowdy

Liam Marsden, 31 May 2013 15:40

There's no doubting the Judge looks the part, but as standard it's laughably quiet. To remedy this I've had a Cobra exhaust system fitted to the Judge. Not only does it make the Judge sound better but it also improves the looks over the standard shotgun exhausts. Thankfully (or sadly, depending on your personal preference) it's not offensively loud and the ...

Staff Blog: Fair-weather rider? I wish

Tony Hoare, 24 May 2013 15:20

This year I’ve been trying to turn myself into a fair weather rider. Honestly, it’s not me, it’s the bike  - I don’t mind riding in the wet and have done thousands of miles in the rain over the years. But the Street Triple R really doesn’t like the wet. The handling doesn’t inspire me to commute the long way ...

Video: Bimota DBX first ride

MCN, 24 May 2013 07:00

Bimota has a reputation for taking engines from the likes of Ducati or one of the Japanese big four and building something rather special around it. It's done the same here, but with a twist - taking a 1078cc Ducati V-twin and coming up with a 120mph dirt bike packed with advanced electronics and classy components. Madness. brightcove.createExperiences();

Video: MCN ride Norton's TT challenger

MCN, 23 May 2013 07:30

With just days to go before the 2013 TT MCN gained exclusive, extended access over two days to the Norton team. They were preparing to test their new 200bhp V4, £100,000 Senior TT machine, which will run active/semi active suspension from Ohlins. And while we were with them, MCN road tester and TT racer Adam Child was given a world-first ...

Staff blog: The myth of the Burgman's small tank

Steve Farrell, 22 May 2013 11:23

I've established the Suzuki Burgman 650 ABS Executive has a much longer tank range than it’s credited with.   Some reports have estimated it at 150 miles, probably because the fuel warning starts flashing at about 130. In fact you’ve got a bar left on the gauge and at least 40 miles in the tank at that point.   There’s ...

Staff blog: Blinded by handlebar muffs

Steve Farrell, 14 May 2013 10:50

In this week’s paper I report how the heated grips on the Suzuki Burgman 650 could be warmer. Just about every journalist on the launch in Scotland seemed to agree on the point. Some said they seemed to work intermittently.  Others questioned whether they worked at all. Suzuki scratched their heads and said they’d look into it. On the ride ...

Staff Blog: Prepping for Italian adventure

Andy Downes, 09 May 2013 16:17

In just a few days I am heading to Italy on the Multistrada 1200 S Touring and I am getting the final bits sorted. I've done loads of European riding in the past and I much prefer to get all of my worrying and preparation done before I go rather than adding any hassle to the trip. My final purchase ...

Staff blog: A lecture from the rozzers

Steve Farrell, 08 May 2013 12:17

You might think your licence would be safe on a scooter but I’ve already been in trouble with the rozzers a week after picking mine up.   The Suzuki Burgman 650 ABS Executive has two automatic modes: Drive and Power. The latter is surprisingly, addictively brisk.   Pulling out of a petrol station on the way to work yesterday morning, ...

Staff blog: The toughest test ever!

Adam Child, 03 May 2013 13:54

This year is going to epic, one I’m going to look back on for years to come and it’s mainly going to be down to my lovely ZX-6R. Just last week I took delivery of my new Kawasaki and unusually for me, I’m treating her with kid-gloves, nice and gentle for the first few hundred miles, before unleashing its full ...
