Suzuki GSX-R750s that rocked the world

Michael Neeves, 21 April 2010 14:46

There's something quite regal about a Silver Jubilee, so it's fitting that the undisputed king of sports bikes - the Suzuki GSX-R750 - celebrates its 25th birthday this year. It still lives on and is as great now as it was in 1985.        Read Suzuki GSX-R reviews Find a GSX-R750 for sale     Read the full 6-page feature on 25 years ...

Australia Blog: Day 6 - Wayne Gardner's kids, future GP heroes?

Michael Neeves, 13 January 2010 13:46

Today I learned the secret to the success of Aussie world champions like Mick Doohan, Casey Stoner, Troy Bayliss and Wayne Gardner. It’s dirt track racing.    Brought up riding small-capacity motocross bikes on tracks that are like road-racing circuits, but are dirt instead of tarmac (so have left and right bends, not just an oval) as kids, they learned ...

Australia Blog: Day 2 - Ducati Streetfighter in Sydney

Michael Neeves, 09 January 2010 18:00

After an eight-hour sleeping pill-induced shut-eye session, I woke this morning to see the Australian sunshine for the first time since landing. God, I love it here. An English mate of mine, Andy, who now lives in Oz, picked me up to collect the Ducati Streetfighter S press bike I’ll be using for the week. He’s just bought a standard ...

Neevesy's predicted 2010 top five motorcycles

Michael Neeves, 29 December 2009 13:30

The global financial crisis seems to have hit the Japanese motorcycle manufacturers the hardest. There’s very little to get excited about from them next year except for Kawasaki’s funky Z1000. One notable exception is the Honda VFR1200, but it’s clear it doesn’t live up to the hype, so doesn’t make it onto my top five new bikes list of 2010. ...

2010 Kawasaki Z1000 first ride: “Japan’s best super-naked”

Michael Neeves, 18 November 2009 17:56

Michael Neeves has just finished riding the all-new Kawasaki Z1000 that hopes to better the Triumph Speed Triple, KTM Super Duke and Ducati Streetfighter. He sent back this report: “On paper the new Z1000 looks like it could be a full-bloodied ‘super naked’ – an intoxicating mixture of raucous engine, sharp handling and bad attitude. In reality it’s something slightly ...

Aprilia Mana 850 GT ABS - first ride

Michael Neeves, 23 June 2009 19:55

The £6999 Mana 850 GT ABS is much more than its specs suggest. On paper it’s a bike with a 839.3cc V-twin scooter engine (the same lump, incidentally, you’ll find in the GP800 made by Aprilia’s sister company Gilera). Thinking of trading in? Sell your bike with MCN for just £9.99 Like the scooter it has a CVT (continuously variable ...

Kawasaki VN1700 Voyager v Harley-Davidson Street Glide v Victory Vision Tour

Michael Neeves, 04 June 2009 14:59

Kawasaki’s new VN1700 Voyager is the Japanese firm’s first fully-dressed V-twin American-style tourer. It’s a Harley clone through and through, albeit loaded with the sort of cutting-edge technology you’d normally find on a Fireblade or R1, like electronically-controlled linked brakes and a ride-by-wire throttle system. It might not have the Harley badge, but it’s got the looks, the shiny chrome ...
