New TE 125 two-stroke spearheads Husaberg's all-enduro 2012 range

Guy Procter, 01 June 2011 17:21

Husaberg has revealed an all-new rip-snorting 'beginner' bike for enduro fans in the form of the two-stroke TE 125. The £5745 bike shares top-drawer components with its bigger brothers including Brembo brakes, closed cartridge forks, fully adjustable PDS shock and machined triple-clamps.  Husaberg boasts the bike's handling will be unbeatable in its class. All 2012 Husabergs also get primped for ...

Husaberg ditches supermotos after selling 7 in 2010

Guy Procter, 01 June 2011 17:13

Husaberg has ditched the last of its supermoto models after selling just 7 in the UK last year. The innovative FS 570 four-stroke was the last of the Swedish supermotos to remain in the 2011 lineup, but in spite of favourable reviews and its novel laid-down single cylinder engine, it was able to shift only four units. More encouragingly Husaberg ...

Ducati burns the history books with new 1199 superbike

Guy Procter, 01 June 2011 10:14

The first spy shot of Ducati's 1198-replacing new superbike confirms the firm is a lot less sentimental about traditional Ducati characteristics than many fans. The result is the most extreme V-twin ever, but with its RSV4-alike tail, Kawasaki-style side-mounted shock and Buell-pattern belly-mounted exhaust it's without question less distinctively Ducati. But the fact is the firm can't afford to care. ...

Piaggio Yourban 300LT: an English proofreader short of genius

Guy Procter, 27 May 2011 17:16

Piaggio's new £5699 Yourban 300 LT is so clever in so many ways it would be a shame if its stupid name got in the way of anyone warming to it. It's a lighter-weight, less troll-like version of the MP3 LT, designed to appeal more to chic inner-city types. Like its non-Yourban MP3 LT sibling it's got the two front ...

Video: the Ducati Diavel that went racing

Guy Procter, 27 May 2011 16:47

It's got the power to out-drag a Ducati 1198 and it can out-brake one too. So why is nobody racing the highly-acclaimed new Ducati Diavel? Well, several reasons actually, but thinking it through would have taken all the fun out of finding out. You can find out more about exactly how this experiment ended up in next week's MCN.

New Ducati: £6k, 220kg, 5.7bhp?

Guy Procter, 26 May 2011 15:49

It’s £6100, manageably powerful, made in Bologna and a Ducati - but will it displace the 696 Monster on many entry-level Duke wishlists? Possibly not, despite besting it on weather protection and tank range. It’s the latest, as yet unannounced iteration of the FreeDuck hybrid quadricycle (a car you can drive on a bike license). And yes it is made ...

The bikes Honda wants to build 4m a year of

Guy Procter, 26 May 2011 14:46

Honda says it will build FOUR MILLION of these little beauties, along with their Unicorn, Stunner and Activa siblings, each year by 2013. The £570 CB Twister 110 and £720 CB Shine 125 will form the bulk of the growth in output from the three mega-factories Honda will have running in India by late 2012. If they hit their target Honda ...

Rossi cops a feel

Guy Procter, 25 May 2011 14:42

Valentino Rossi has been spotted copping a feel of girlfriend Marwa Klebi’s breasts aboard a £700,000 yacht, Italian gossip mag Oggi reports. In his constant quest for the perfect set-up, the nine-times world champion cupped first the left boob and then the right, but characteristically allowed his expression to give little away about what he gleaned. Commentators say rivals will ...

BMW S1000RR streetfighter: so wrong it's right

Guy Procter, 13 May 2011 16:36

Believe it or not, this is an S1000RR. No doubt some parts will make you laugh and others weep, but there’s no denying it's a really thorough desecration. As a lover of all eras of BMW, owner and builder Steve Culp was moved to give his bike a vintage makeover to make it comfortable for his ageing frame. We applaud ...
