BMW F800GS Trophy and Triple Black special editions ridden

MCN, 28 March 2012 16:30

Ever since I rode the brilliant Triumph Tiger 800 I've known with complete certainty that it was the best 800cc motorbike on the planet. Until now. Now I'm not so sure. I've just ridden the BMW F800GS Triple Black and F800GS Trophy Special Edition and they're very, very good. The F800GS Triple Black comes with a deep black paint finish, ...

Video: 2012 KTM 990 Adventure ridden

MCN, 05 March 2012 09:21

If this KTM Adventure 990 looks familiar then that’s entirely deliberate – but this is no limited edition ‘Dakar’ version, as debuted last Spring, nor the full-blown ‘R’ version – it’s the standard 2012 Adventure which, like its R brother, boasts a host of modifications and improvements for this year, before an all-new model is expected in 2014. In a ...

Husqvarna Nuda 900 takes on rivals

MCN, 22 February 2012 16:02

The Husqvarna Nuda 900 is arguably the firms first serious road bike. Using a development of BMW's F800 parallel twin engine, the Nuda promises an exciting, fun-packed, street future. But how does it measure up? We pitted the new Husqvarna against its closest competition - the Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 Factory, Ducati Hypermotard 796 and KTM 990 SMT - on British ...

Harley-Davidson Softail Slim first ride

Phil West, 17 February 2012 15:34

Considering the turmoil Harley-Davidson has been through the last couple of years, what with plummeting US sales, the MV and Buell shockers and the little matter of having to restructure fundamentally its main production facillity, it’s more than a little encouraging that the American legend has any new models at all for 2012. And while the word ‘new’, in typical ...

Video: Onboard a Ducati 1199 Panigale with Neil Hodgson

MCN, 15 February 2012 10:45

2003 World Superbike champion Neil Hodgson was at the Ducati 1199 Panigale launch in Abu Dhabi and was kind enough to let MCN bolt-on some onboard cameras during one of his sessions. The Panigale is an all-new bike from Ducati, making a claimed 195bhp from the 'Superquadro' V-twin engine. The new bike features a wealth of electronic rider aids, including ABS, traction ...

Video: Kawasaki Versys 1000 takes on R1200GS and Tiger 1050

MCN, 19 January 2012 12:20

Kawasaki's controversial new Versys 1000 has set the cat amongst the adventure bike pigeons this week - as proven by MCN's world exclusive first test of the new monster trailie against its leading rivals. We pitted the new Versys against two top rivals - first, the reigning adventure-bike class king, BMW's R1200GS. And second, Triumph's more road-orientated Tiger 1050. Kawasaki ...

2012 Honda Fireblade - how good?

MCN, 03 January 2012 12:00

Although not all-new, Honda’s 2012 CBR1000RR Fireblade has had a significant makeover, with suspension, throttle response and styling all updated – but how much difference does it all make? To find out we pitted the new bike head-to-head with the outgoing 2011 version on both road and dyno. And even though our test took place in cold and damp December ...
