Aprilia SR Max 300: Taken to the Max

Aprilia’s new SR Max 300 fits neatly into the overcrowded maxi-scooter class, but with a less than subtle difference from its rivals – the Aprilia actually looks exciting to ride. With styling allegedly based on the RSV4 superbike – a little far-fetched, although the black/red colour scheme is eye-catching and the angular layout of the bike is striking – it ...

Staff bikes: KTM 990 SMT ABS - Retuned to perfection

Although the KTM 990 SM-T looks the same black and white bike I'd left at BSD Performance for a dyno run and fuelling check, the bike I got back now runs like a completely different machine. The KTM's low-rpm throttle snatch around town is now nothing more than a memory. Throttle response in first and second gearis smoother with the ...

Honda’s new-for-2012 CBR1000RR Fireblade was officially shown to the world at simultaneous unveilings over the weekend, at the Imola round of WSB and Le Mans 24-Hour. Not surprisingly the bikes displayed turned out to be the same machine that MCN highlighted after details were released on a Hong-Kong Honda dealer’s website.

Husqvarna SMS4 125: Teenage kicks - Husky style

While we await the arrival of the Nuda 900, Husqvarna's new F800-powered supermoto, two other equally important models from the now BMW-owned but Italian-based company have gone on sale. The SMS4 125 and TE125 are 124.45cc, four-stroke, learner-legal machines styled to mimic the company's off-road competition bikes. Both bikes are a big departure from the unrestricted 125cc two-strokes Husqvarna are ...

Held Titan sports gloves

Held Titan sports gloves £216.99 (plus £65.10 made to measure fee) Miles covered/time: 6000+/nine months What’s good: More construction detail than a model aircraft. Here are some highlights: pre-curved palms and fingers don’t cause ‘bunch-up’, use of abrasion-resistant stingray leather in key areas, a serious amount of shock absorbing and strengthening material hidden under panels, a connecting bridge between the ...

Ogio TY Video 2 backpack

Ogio TY Video 2 backpack, £99.99 Miles covered/time: 5000+/five months What’s good: The carrying capacity of 49 litres and the strong, well thought-out design have made this backpack as essential as my leathers, crash helmet etc. Put another way it can hold everything I need for an average day. I’m talking big Nikon camera and spare lens, handheld video camera, ...

Lambretta returns! But it's made in Taiwan

The new LN125 is the first scooter 'branded' Lambretta for decades. But while the name is synonymous with Italian style - and the new scoot is styled by an Italian - it's based on a Taiwanese-made Sym four-stroke. So while the LN125's silhouette harks back to the iconic two-stroke workhorse of the '60s and '70s, any similarity ends there. And ...

Blown away: TTS supercharged Suzuki Hayabusa

Suzuki's 195bhp Hayabusa has never been a wallflower. But compared to this latest supercharged example, which has been built by tuning experts TTS of Silverstone and puts out a massive 283bhp with no loss of usability, it certainly feels like one. Richard Albans is the man behind the Northants-based tuning shop and has long been convinced that supercharging is the ...

Kawasaki's VN1700 'bagger' rolls into UK

The new, chopped-down, touring VN1700 Voyager Custom is the third bike in Kawasaki's Voyager line-up to hit the UK and neatly fills a gap between the fully-dressed touring Voyager and laid-back, unfaired Classic. Effectively it's jumping on the 'bagger' bandwagon - a bagger being a cruiser with panniers (bags) and decent comfort. That means you can have your cake and ...
