BMW C650GT first ride: “takes scooter equipment to a new level”

Steve Farrell, 12 March 2012 17:08

The BMW C650 GT is one of the most sophisticated scooters yet - and the first to cost over £10,000. I've just ridden the new super scooter at the launch in Madrid. With heated seat and grips, ABS and electronically adjustable screen, it takes scooter equipment to a new level. It's got the go of a middleweight motorcycle - just ...

Dream Yamaha FZR750R OW-01 ride proves you should meet your heroes

Michael Neeves, 22 December 2011 13:40

Yamaha’s OW-01 is one of the most evocative motorcycles ever built. It was first shown to a wide-eyed public at the Earls Court motorcycle show in October 1988 and went on to take racing by storm, winning hundreds of races at club level, BSB and WSB. It gave Terry Rymer his first WSB win, Rob McElnea a BSB title, Foggy ...

Staff bikes: KTM Duke 125 - If you ask an expert...

Dan Aspel, 27 October 2011 16:26

In my hands the MCN award-winning 125 Duke has proved to be a reliable commuter, tourer and general muck-about bike. It has impressed me. But would it impress a half-decent rider? I handed the keys to MCN senior road tester and NW200 veteran Adam Child. After a quick blast, a few stoppies, a burn-out and valiant attempts at a wheelie, ...

Michael Neeves blog – Off Road Skills

Michael Neeves, 18 October 2011 12:23

I’ve just returned from two days in Wales with Paris Dakar legend Simon Pavey, at his off-road school, or the ‘Odd Road Skills, powered by World of BMW and Husqvarna’, to give it its full name. It was the best riding school I’ve ever been to. I’ll readily admit I’m an off-road numpty. I love the idea of riding in ...

Michael Neeves MRO Powerbike Blog – Final round, Brands.

Michael Neeves, 28 September 2011 16:56

It wasn’t quite the perfect end to a perfect season, but it was damn close. After the chequered flag was waved for the final race of the MRO Powerbike season last Sunday at Brands, I lost the championship to worthy winner and fellow BMW rider, Rob McNealy, by a hundredth of a second – less than a bike length. I’m ...

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 ...

Staff bikes: Yamaha Super Tenere - Here we go again

Michael Guy, 26 September 2011 11:44

Having clocked 4500 miles on the big Super Tenere so far this year, life is good. It's not the sharpest-handling or most exciting big adventure bike out there, but as an all-round package it's certainly grown on me. The chassis is incredibly well balanced and combined, the engine civilised, it's comfortable and easy to ride, which is ultimately what a ...

Staff bikes: Moto Guzzi Griso SE - V7 Classic snaffled by actress

John Westlake, 25 August 2011 17:16

Just when I was learning to love the V7 Classic and its gentle take on motorcycling life, it has been snatched away from me. Moto Guzzi have reclaimed it, and sent it on a far more glamourous mission: it must now provide post-test transport for a celebrity. Yes, my humble V7 is currently ferrying Gill Halfpenny between her beautiful celebrity ...
