2003 World Superbike champion Neil Hodgson was at the Ducati 1199 Panigale launch in Abu Dhabi and was kind enough to let MCN bolt-on some onboard cameras during one of his sessions. The Panigale is an all-new bike from Ducati, making a claimed 195bhp from the 'Superquadro' V-twin engine. The new bike features a wealth of electronic rider aids, including ABS, traction ...

MCN, 19 January 2012 12:20

Kawasaki's controversial new Versys 1000 has set the cat amongst the adventure bike pigeons this week - as proven by MCN's world exclusive first test of the new monster trailie against its leading rivals. We pitted the new Versys against two top rivals - first, the reigning adventure-bike class king, BMW's R1200GS. And second, Triumph's more road-orientated Tiger 1050. Kawasaki ...

MCN, 03 January 2012 12:00

Although not all-new, Honda’s 2012 CBR1000RR Fireblade has had a significant makeover, with suspension, throttle response and styling all updated – but how much difference does it all make? To find out we pitted the new bike head-to-head with the outgoing 2011 version on both road and dyno. And even though our test took place in cold and damp December ...

First Triumph Tiger 800 Supermoto

MCN, 03 October 2011 14:31

Straight bars, 17in wheels, upside down forks, fox-eye headlights and an 800cc inline triple - could this be a secret, pre-production Triumph Street Triple 800? We wish. In fact this isn't a big-bore version of the 675cc Street Triple - one of the finest roadsters you can buy - but it could be the next best thing: a Triumph Tiger ...

Video: Is Aprilia's RS4 king of sports 125s?

MCN, 30 September 2011 15:04

How quick things change. Just a few years ago if you wanted a performance 125 it had to be a two-stroke.
