2013 Ducati Multistrada ridden

Adam Child, 27 September 2012 14:30

Ducati’s Multistrada 1200 revolutionised the adventure bike class when it was introduced in 2010. Its sporty mix of 150bhp (derived from its 1199-derived V-twin), combined with high tech gizmos and real world comfort and usability proved a winning combination with over 20,000 examples sold worldwide so far. Three years on, Ducati is aiming to keep the Multistrada ahead of 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();

MV Agustas for £5000. Bargain or baloney?

MCN, 08 June 2012 16:24

For anyone less than a die-hard fan, MV Agustas can be confusing. They’ve been around seemingly unchanged for years and there are a bewildering amount of different F4s and Brutale models to choose from. These gorgeous Italian-built bikes are full of contradictions as well. Once upon a time they were the leaders on the track in the hands of legends ...

Aprilia SRV850 first ride: "like something made as a dare"

Steve Farrell, 15 March 2012 09:48

The new Aprilia SRV850 is the most powerful scooter yet - and nearly £2000 cheaper than BMW's C650 GT. The SRV850 is a restyled and re badged Gilera GP800 with the same chassis and 839cc V-twin engine. Aprilia says there have been 250 tweaks, including to the suspension and engine, resulting in sportier handling and marginally more power - 76bhp ...

MV Agusta F3 vs Triumph Daytona 675R at a glance

MCN, 09 March 2012 14:29

The new three-cylinder 675cc MV Agusta F3 is the lightest, most powerful and electronically advanced supersport machine on the road, but does all that make it any better than the Triumph Daytona 675R? The Triumph can't compete with the tecnology of the F3, but it does come with Ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes and a quickshifter. To find out which is ...

Video: Suzuki V-Strom takes on rivals

MCN, 23 September 2011 09:30

The new Suzuki V-Strom already impressed MCN when we rode it at the launch. The replacement of the bike's old SV650 motor with a new Gladius-derived unit, a full restyle and lashings of extra refinement moved the V-Strom up to a new level. But our test shows that, despite Suzuki's best efforts, it still falls short of the powerful, more ...

MCN in 3D: Neil Hodgson riding the Ducati 1198

MCN, 04 July 2011 15:21

With the latest Aprilia RSV4 R APRC and Ducati 1198, electronic rider aids are becoming more affordable. Both machines are equipped with eight-stage traction control and a quickshifter, which saves you from having to manually shut the throttle when changing up through the gears, whilst the Aprilia takes it a stage further with anti-wheelie and launch control systems along with ...

After a session on the RS4, here are his thoughts. "From a distance, the RS4 looks almost exactly like the RSV4 superbike, which its styling is based on, it's not ...

Staff Bikes: Ducati Multistrada - It continues to impress

Marc Potter, 11 April 2011 17:06

If you’re going on a long trip then the first thing you need is a motorcycle that’s capable of covering big miles in comfort with luggage on board. That’s the Multistrada 1200S then. The next thing you need is a decent set of tyres that will grip in the bends but do plenty of motorways miles. Before a trip to ...

BMW K1600GTL first ride preview

Marc Potter, 25 February 2011 17:22

The BMW K1600GTL is the bigger brother of the BMW K1600GT, but the feel of the bike suggests more changes than meets the eye. It comes with a massive top box capable of swallowing two full-size helmets and the same panniers as the GT. Plus it gets lower handlebars that are further back, lower footrests, lower pillion footrests and a ...
