Nothing grey about these

Andy Davidson, 03 August 2012 09:24

The 400cc sportsbike is an exotic delicacy from a far off land. Shipped to the UK under the banner of ‘grey import’, these beautifully wrapped, miniature GSX-Rs, CBRs, VFRs and FZRs looked like they’d been ridden straight from the Suzuka pitlane at the Suzuka 8-hour and were hugely sought after in early and mid 90s. The UK was flooded with ...

Housing Yamaha’s XT660 motor ...

Cagiva Elefant 900 - less than 30 left

MCN, 29 June 2012 17:30

With just nine Cagiva Elefant 900s left on the roads of the UK, plus a further eight tucked away in people’s garages on a SORN, you might reasonably expect the Cagiva Elefant, one of the original adventure bikes, to be better represented. On face value, for the early 1990s, marrying a Ducati V-twin with a monster trailie chassis seemed like ...

Michael Neeves, 18 May 2012 16:12

Honda’s first production V4, tested by MCN 30 years ago this week, was the start of a dynasty Honda was determined would define it, if it didn’t destroy it first.

Rare classic military scooter up for auction

Anonymous, 10 May 2012 16:56

What you see in the picture to your right is a 1959 Vespa Militare. And yes, it is real.

Rocket propelled grenades are 'attractively presented in a wicker basket.' The estimated ...
