MRO Powerbike blog: Snetterton 300

Michael Neeves, 12 July 2011 16:12

Another good weekend racing in the bag, with two second places and a third. It’s the second time we’ve visited the Snetterton 300 circuit this year and we’re back again in September racing on the smaller ‘200’ layout. It’s very hard to grind out a good lap time around this place. There’s a real mix of ultra-fast, heart-in-the-mouth turns and ...

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 ...

Staff bikes: BMW G650GS - When different isn’t better

Steve Farrell, 03 June 2011 10:12

In my last update on the G650GS I’m riding this year, I mentioned how BMWs are different to other bikes in the detail. I said they were not always better but never without effort. Well, here’s an example : The indicator switch. The G650GS does not feature BMW’s famously different three-switch arrangement, with a button on each bar to activate ...

Staff bikes: BMW G650GS - 'Quality'

Steve Farrell, 21 April 2011 16:46

I’ve just spent my first weekend with the BMW G650GS, after taking delivery of it on Friday, and the word I want to say is: quality. You’d never guess this is one of the cheapest big bikes you can buy. The screen is as blemish-free as glass, so much so that I can attach my sat nav with a suction ...

Why new bikes aren’t as heavy as you think

Steve Farrell, 21 April 2011 16:23

The specifications of some small-to-middle-weight new bikes have caused disquiet on the forums of MCN this year.

Modern four-cylinder 600s are down to this sort of weight.” Another user said both the CBR250R and the 169kg ...

MRO Powerbike blog: Cadwell Park

Michael Neeves, 13 April 2011 12:17

It was one of the best racing weekends for me so far on my beloved BMW Park lane S1000RR. The weather was glorious and I managed three thirds in Powerbikes, with a best lap time of 1.33.01. That’s over two seconds faster than I went here last year on the same bike and over a second quicker than my personal ...

New BMW R1200GS Triple Black first ride

Trevore Franklin, 01 April 2011 17:41

Limited edition bikes are like truffles: you wonder what all the fuss is about, especially for the extra outlay involved in buying them. So, when BMW introduces a limited edition R1200GS, you feel justified in saying: "So what?" The standard R1200GS, with no thrills or frills, costs £10,550. The question is: would you pay an extra £435 for the same ...
