Aprilia SR Max 300: Taken to the Max

Trevor Franklin, 07 October 2011 14:26

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

Trevor Franklin, 05 October 2011 16:49

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

Trevor Franklin, 12 September 2011 14:12

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 ...

Lambretta returns! But it's made in Taiwan

Trevor Franklin, 01 September 2011 16:34

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

Trevor Franklin, 11 August 2011 16:41

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

Trevor Franklin, 05 August 2011 09:56

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 ...
