Staff Blog: Hyperstrada – 3588-miles in eight days.

Michael Neeves, 08 July 2013 11:56

  I’ve just got back from my 3588-mile riding holiday to France, Spain and Portugal. It seems weird just riding to work today and not grinding out hundreds of miles in the sunshine, on the wrong side of the road, like I’ve been doing for the past eight days. Although the roads down the west coast of France, across the ...

Staff blog: Hyperstrada on tour

Michael Neeves, 03 July 2013 14:58

I'm half way through a riding holiday with a couple of my mates. We've ridden down the west coast of France, along the top of Spain and now stopped half way down the Portuguese coast, in the resort of Figueira Da Foz. There doesn't seem to be anyone here in Portugal, from the towns to the motorways. It's like one ...

NCR's titanium-framed Ducati

Michael Neeves, 02 July 2013 08:00

NCR has been tuning Ducatis since the late 60s. During the 90s and early 2000s, you’ll probably remember the black NCR Ducatis competing in World Superbike, ridden by the likes of Borja, Bontempi, Xaus, Bostrom, Laconi and Chilli. In 2001 NCR wound down its racing activities to concentrate on building their own Ducati-engined specials and producing mouth-watering aftermarket Ducati spares. ...

Staff Blog: Hyperstrada at Snetterton and beyond

Michael Neeves, 20 June 2013 16:05

I took my Hyperstrada for a blast around the Snetterton 300 circuit on Monday – my second trackday of the year on the Ducati. I was there helping fellow MCN-er, Andy Davidson, who was doing his first ever trackday on his long term Kawasaki Z800. It’s easy to take trackdays for granted when you do a lot of them, but ...

Michelin v Pirelli

Michael Neeves, 14 June 2013 13:38

I’ve spent this week getting to know the new Pirelli Angel GT tyres I fitted on Monday. I’ve been using my bike for commuting to work and the other day I rode the 320-mile round trip down to Ramsgate and back to see my brother Ben. We took a couple of days off and did a car trackday at the ...

Staff Blog: Hyperstrada Tyre Testing

Michael Neeves, 10 June 2013 11:33

I’m working my way through as many new-for-2013 tyres as I can for this year, so I can see what the tyre companies have been up to. With each new generation of tyre, we get more bang for our buck. The new breed keep getting gripper, better in the wet and more durable. I ran the standard Pirelli Scorpion dual ...

Staff Blog: Finding time for the Hyperstrada

Michael Neeves, 06 June 2013 12:02

I’ve never known it to be so busy in MCN Road Test land, so I find myself away travelling lots. It means that sometimes I’m riding my Hyperstrada every day and occasionally weeks will go by where it sits in my garage, untouched. But now things are slowing down a touch. Lots of the new bike tests are fizzling out ...

Michael Neeves, 06 June 2013 10:08

MV Agusta’s brand new £11,499 F3 800 is currently being put through its paces at Misano in Italy by MCN Senior Road Tester Michael Neeves. Here are his first impressions: “The new machine is basically the same as the F3 675, but has a longer stroke engine, a claimed145bhp at the crank and tweaked suspension damping and spring rates. “I've done a ...
