So how do you like yours?

Anonymous, 12 May 2000 00:00

HOW do you want your bike to feel? Racy and quick into turns or steady and stable? It’s all down to suspension.Top racers spend more time working on suspension settings than anything else. The ad slogan is spot-on – power is nothing without control.In part one of this two-part special, MCN enlisted the help of former grand prix racer Ron ...

HANDS up if you don’t know how half the functions on your video recorder work and therefore never use them. If it records at the appropriate time and on the right channel, you’re more than happy.Many of us are much the same with our motorcycles. We’re in such a rush to get on them and out on the road or ...

How a slipper stops a slide...

Anonymous, 05 May 2000 00:00

WE’VE been hearing a lot about slipper clutches recently – they’re fitted to exotica like Aprilia’s RSV and anyone watching the TV coverage of the Phillip Island WSB will have seen what can happen if you don’t have one. Turning into a low-speed corner in the wet, Pier-Francesco Chili shut the throttle on his Suzuki GSX-R750 and was pitched off ...

American psycho

Anonymous, 05 May 2000 00:00

BRUTAL, that’s the only word for it. The X1 Lightning has always been a bit of an animal, but this carbon-clad version has taken things to a new extreme. I can’t remember the last time I had a bike demand so much attention. Pull up at a set of traffic lights and car drivers don’t just give you that short, ...

It’s not how much weight you lose, it’s where you lose it

Anonymous, 01 May 2000 00:00

AT the launch of the TT600, one of the features Triumph’s engineers were keen to highlight was the bike’s exceptionally light wheels.They are the lightest in the 600 supersport class. Triumph even went to the considerable lengths of working with the supplier of the TT600’s front forks, Japanese company Kayaba, to design a new set of damping internals made from ...

It’s a car killer

Anonymous, 01 May 2000 00:00

Piaggio, like BMW with its C1 scoot-with-a-roof, has realised the future lies in targeting people who wouldn’t normally consider buying a scooter rather than just poaching customers from rival firms. And the most obvious group to go for is the car driver. So why should you be interested? Well, for one thing it means there will be more motorists out ...

An opportunity to get your brain into gears

Anonymous, 01 May 2000 00:00

HOWLING along your favourite stretch of road, you snick down two gears as you brake into a corner, turn on a well-planned line, open the throttle, change up and surge away.Your memories of the road will all be about how well you judged the corners, used forward thinking to avoid hazards and how you enjoyed the engine’s power delivery.What the ...

Ready for a riot

Anonymous, 01 May 2000 00:00

MOTORCYCLING is speckled with legendary machines. Ducati’s 900SS and 916, Honda’s RC30 and the original CB750, Norton’s Manx single and, more recently, Yamaha’s R1 all have their places in history. They’ve earned it by pushing the performance envelope. But however impressive they once were or still are, they’ll never be as great as Yamaha’s RD250 and 350LC.While the 900SS, 916, ...

When is a CBR not a CBR...?

Anonymous, 21 April 2000 00:00

" DON’T harm my baby. " If I wasn’t already nervous about riding Russell Savory’s Evo CBR600, I was now. This was the culmination of months of painstaking work by RS Performance to build the ultimate CBR600 road bike. Only a handful have been made and Savory treats them all like part of the family. No-one except his most trusted ...

Doohan: Four-strokes are the future of 500 GPs

Anonymous, 14 April 2000 00:00

IMAGINE the sound this engine would make. Not the muted waspy buzz of a modern 500cc grand prix race engine, but the incredible shriek of a V10 Formula One engine. It’s one of car racing’s biggest attractions, and it’s soon to be heard emanating from bikes at a track near you.Motors like this will provide the power for the blue ...
