It’s due to go on sale in June and should cost less than £6,000, which means if you are thinking of buying a Honda Hornet, Yamaha Fazer or Ducati Monster it’s a bike worth seriously considering. It’s a sit up and ...

Michael Neeves, 30 March 2007 16:59

Michael Neeves' Yamaha R1 long termer; Brands Hatch March 10/11 – round one of the MRO Powerbike championship. It’s my first ever race on the R1, and it’s still essentially a road bike with a pattern fairing.

MV F4 312R first ride

Michael Neeves, 27 March 2007 13:57

Just finished riding the new MV Agusta F4 312R at Monza and it is properly, mentally fast. The 312 part of the name signifies that it will do 312 kph, about 192 mph and although we couldn’t get near this figure on the track I think given a long stretch of road or runway you could get pretty close to it. ...

Video: Shakedown test for MCN's R1

Michael Neeves, 02 March 2007 16:30

You’ve got to feel sorry for my new R1 long termer. It’s an ex-Yamaha press bike and has already done 1600-miles of hard miles on the track, road and on one wheel. I’m going to be racing the R1 in MRO Powerbike this year as well as using it on the road. My first ever ride on it is at ...

New Ducati Scrambler

Michael Neeves, 02 March 2007 11:00

If there’s ever a bike to drag you away from a sports bike this could be it.  It started life as a humble Ducati Multistrada 1000 but it’s been pared down to the bone, is super lightweight, agile, easy to ride and big fun.  Some say Ducati themselves are going to build something similar and if it’s half as good ...
