Staff blog: Is the Judge worthy of a nod?

Liam Marsden, 22 April 2013 13:28

Riding back from MCN Live at Butlins Skegness at the weekend was the first weekend with good weather and plenty of bikes on the fantastic roads of the Lincolnshire Wolds. On previous long term bikes I've never given two thoughts to the nods I've received from fellow bikers. But I'm not sure if less people are nodding at me on ...

Staff Blog: Nailing The Basics

Steve Hunt, 22 April 2013 10:31

With the sun threatening to finally breakthrough and bring back some semblance of normality to the spring climate, now is the time that most riders come out of their enforced hibernation and return to the road. But rusty riders on defrosting roads don’t always make for the best of combinations and it’s these riders that the California Superbike School are ...

Aprilia Caponord first ride

Adam Child, 11 April 2013 10:56

As the biking audience matures, demand continues to increase for adventure bikes. Early last year Triumph launched its new Explorer which took the coveted MCN road test class crown in 2012. But since then Ducati has launched its new ‘skyhook’ Multistrada, the first to come with true semi-active suspension, while both KTM and BMW have introduced new models which have ...

Snow at the CBR600RR launch

Tim Thompson, 21 March 2013 11:43

Snow and freezing temperatures at the press launch of the 2013 Honda CBR600RR ensured that the myriad changes to the bike Honda remain, for now, untested. The repackaged CBR features new 41mm Big Piston Forks, a remapped ECU for improved mid and upper-range engine performance, plus a pair of Fireblade-style 12-spoke ally wheels --  modifications that Honda hope will improve ...

Video: BMW F800GT first ride

MCN, 15 March 2013 15:50

The new BMW F800GT aims to be a daily commuter, load-lugging tourer and weekend fun ride. The GT replaces the F800ST, which has been a decent seller in the middleweight touring bracket since 2006. The new bike has a new fairing, more power, changed riding position and updated parts to reposition it as a true touring machine rather than a ...

Sports bikes to Africa

Michael Neeves, 29 January 2013 06:30

We all know that sportsbikes are so focused that you need a track to get the best out of them. But, as has always been the case, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy them every day. The Ducati Panigale and BMW S1000RR we have here might have close to 200bhp, sticky tyres and track-orienated suspension, but power deliveries are smooth, ...

MCN rides the Britten V1000

Adam Child, 24 January 2013 07:30

‘Outstanding’, ‘amazing’, and ‘work of art’ are all labels liberally applied to the exotic race bikes built by John Britten, but in reality the Britten deserves a unique accolade to celebrate its existence. In many peoples’ minds it’s simply the greatest bike ever made. For me it transcends everything, it’s a dream bike, it was the poster bike I had ...

This week our intrepid road tester Chad jets off to South Africa for the launch of BMW's all-new R1200GS super-traillie.
