MV Agusta F3 first ride: "Unusual but intuitive" says designer Adrian Morton

Guy Procter, 14 June 2011 14:19

The designer of MV's new F3 Adrian Morton has told MCN what the bike is like to ride. Naturally he thinks it's good, but given it's his first ever ride on the machine he styled, and he's a regular rider just like the rest of us rather than a superhero Stig-style tester, his observation the handling feels 'unusual but intuitive' is ...

Why artists should stay away from bikes. Especially Ducati 1198s

Guy Procter, 08 June 2011 11:23

A Danish artist has produced 10 special edition Ducati 1198s under the title 'Kill me Fast'. Of the £62,500 bikes Kristian von Hornsleth  says: "It is precisely the bikes' blend of beauty, speed and death, which inspired me to include this 'scuplture' in my artistic work.

What KTM taught Bajaj about promoting its new Pulsar 220

Guy Procter, 08 June 2011 10:43

Paint it orange, ride it lairy: it's a tried and trusted sales technique for KTM, whose partnership with Indian giant Bajaj has yielded the new Duke 125 and access to a wonderfully cost-efficient supply chain for the Austrian firm. Allowing the Pune-based firm to copy its marketing methods is the most obvious form of payback. It's hard to see how ...

Guy Procter, 08 June 2011 10:30

Suzuki has let out two more tantalising images of its new adventure bike, the all-new V-Strom 650. The illustrations are scarcely more informative than the Sound of Music-style mountain scene in the first release, but their drip-drip release at least shows how excited Suzuki is about the new bike.

Why the MotoCzysz E1pc is a dead cert to win, but makes nothing like 200bhp

Guy Procter, 06 June 2011 16:23

MotoCzysz's '200bhp' E1pc will undoubtedly win the 2011 TT Zero race barring mishap, but its 142.8mph top speed tells a different story to its press bumf, its practice performance reveals. The speed, recorded along Sulby Straight, reveals a motor putting out a peak of around 80bhp, rather than the 200bhp regularly mentioned in connection with its D1-11 VDR D1g1tal Dr1ve. ...

2011 Motoczysz E1PC – M1cha3l Rutt3r's 200bhp digital watch

Guy Procter, 03 June 2011 17:41

This is the bike Michael Rutter wil ride in this year's electric TT, though if MotoCzysz had it their way no doubt it would be the Digital TT. Because what with all the over-promising and under-delivering the word 'electric' has kind of lost its caché in connection with motorcycling. MotoCzysz are going all-in with 'd1g1tal' - like 'digital' but even ...
