MCN, 11 June 2012 17:06

Four bikes. A Dakar hero. 100+ miles off-road. Just one question: can adventure bikes live up to their billing? We took the BMW R1200GS, Yamaha XT1200Z Super Tenere, Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200 and KTM 990 Adventure on an off-road adventure and to really test their abilities, we enlisted Stan Watt, who finished 34th in this year's Dakar Rally.  brightcove.createExperiences();

Video: Husqvarna TE310 longterm review

MCN, 08 June 2012 09:27

Based on the super-light TE250, the Husqvarna TE310 sits squarely between the 250 and the monstrous TE449. Husqvarna have bored and stroked the 250 engine ou tto 302.44cc to create a bike that is just as light as the 250, but with more torque making it easier to ride. While a 450 dirt bike can be a bit of an ...

Piaggio X10 first ride

MCN, 07 June 2012 10:27

The Piaggio X10 is not dirt cheap: the £5,000 you need to score one will seem like a lot to plenty of bike riders, who inevitably consider what motorcycle they could get for that money, but against most rival scooters it looks pretty good. It also happens to be the best scooter in its class. The only version of the ...

Video: Ducati 1199 Panigale vs BMW S1000RR and Aprilia RSV4

MCN, 11 May 2012 15:46

So can one of the most exciting, talked-about motorcycles this year - the Ducati Panigale - reignite our passion for all things very fast?

MV Agusta F3 vs rivals at a glance

MCN, 29 March 2012 13:19

MV Agusta's new F3 is one of the most eagerly awaited bikes of 2012, but since its launch storm clouds have been gathering. Is the beautiful Italian simply too track-focused and rough around the edges to be a decent road bike and compete with the competition?

Video: BMW C600 Sport and C650GT ridden

MCN, 22 March 2012 14:52

BMW's new C650GT and C600 Sport are the first £9.5k step-thrus, and though MCN's first ride proves their general competence, it's difficult to see how they're worth twice as much as BMW's own F650GS adventure bike. The two giant scooters have the same engine and chassis, but the GGT - for Gran Turismo - aims for touring comfort, with a ...

MCN, 29 February 2012 13:34

Triumph is making no bones about gunning for BMW's best-selling R1200GS - its new Explorer 1200 is aimed squarely at giving the BMW a bloody nose. Triumph motorcycles for sale. And in every possible way, except for off-road ability and image, the Triumph is dynamically the better bike, and in some cases by a long way. Triumph has built a ...
