BMW S1000RR vs BMW S1000RR HP4

Michael Neeves, 04 January 2013 07:30

A few months ago I was lucky enough to ride the new BMW HP4 at its world launch at Jerez, southern Spain. With perfect track conditions and slick tyres to play on, it was a dream. More impressive still was the HP4. BMW has taken its already class-leading S1000RR and made it even better: 9kg lighter, more agile, smoother and ...

Video: Sports touring tyres tested

Michael Neeves, 17 May 2012 14:12

Sports touring tyres are fast becoming the default tyre for UK motorcyclists, from commuters to superbike riders because of two things: instant grip and durability. They can do big miles (as many as old touring tyres) and they’ll even handle track days. Crucially for UK riders, sports touring rubber is also the best you can buy for the rain – ...

Ducati 1199 Panigale Tricolore first ride

Michael Neeves, 20 April 2012 09:56

If you’re fortunate enough to be able to stump up the £23,495 for the Tricolore version of the Ducati 1199 Panigale, you’re in for a treat. Not only do you get this sexy colour scheme included in the price, racing ABS and the latest-generation ‘Ducati Data Analyser’ (DDA+) datalogger, you get a pair of titanium Termignoni slip-on cans, which boosts ...

Bimota DB9 Brivido first ride: 'One of my top bikes of 2012'

Michael Neeves, 14 March 2012 11:30

We had to twist Bimota's arm really hard to let us ride their new DB9 Brivido. After a few months of emails and phone calls trying to set up this test, we decided to bite the bullet and literally turn up on the doorstep of their factory in Rimini, Italy. I’m honoured. No one outside of Bimota’s small test team ...

Neevesy’s blog – Ducati Multistrada in Oz

Michael Neeves, 13 January 2012 09:18

Ducati’s Multistrada 1200 is MCN’s current king of the all-rounders. Like it says on the tin, it will do-anything and go-anywhere. Its superbike engine delivers a monstrous amount of power, it handles superbly and it’s an epic mile-muncher. It’ll even handle a bit of off-road, if you’re mad enough. I’ve ridden a fair few and if I’m honest, I’d normally ...

It looks like we could also see another FP1 running at selected special motorcycle events: the only genuine Petronas WSB bike in private hands, if the ...

Staff bikes: Suzuki GSX-R750 - Viva el Gixer!

Michael Neeves, 20 October 2011 14:12

Now that's what I call a summer trip. 3397.6 miles in two weeks, on a bike designed for the track, but absolutely perfect for everything else too. From the monotonous motorways of France to the stunning switchbacks of Andorra, the city streets of Barcelona and trips to beaches in Ibiza, never once did I wish I was on another bike, ...

F4 RR is the best MV Agusta yet!

Michael Neeves, 03 August 2011 14:14

Our world-first test of the stunning new 201bhp F4 RR Corsacorta has revealed it to be not only the fastest MV Agusta we've ever ridden - but also the most refined. MCN rode the new £18k superbike at a special test on the Adria circuit, north-east of Bologna, Italy and can reveal that, thanks to the RR's new Ohlins suspension and lightweight ...

BMW S1000RR racers ridden

Michael Neeves, 07 July 2011 10:34

What happens when you take one of the most powerful, best-handling sportsbikes, loaded with the latest electronic rider aids and turn it into a racer? To find out, BMW let us ride four S1000RRs, back-to-back at Monza. We got familiar with the track on a bog-standard road bike, then tried Lorenzo Zanetti’s BMW Team Motorrad Italia FIM Superstock 1000 Cup ...
