Staff bikes: Suzuki GSX-R600 - 160mph!

James Keen, 21 May 2010 09:20

If you've read the hyperbikes v superbikes road test in this week's MCN, you'll know that we were recently at Bruntingthorpe proving ground speed testing some of the fastest bikes you can buy.  I went along on my GSX-R600 to shoot the video (watch it here), but also because I wanted to take it for a thrash on the runway.   I'd been dying to see what ...

Staff bikes: Enfield Clubman - Top speed test for 28bhp missile

Marc Abbott, 12 May 2010 15:53

My Enfield Bullet Clubman has no rev counter and nothing but an ‘old-fashioned’ dial by way of speedometer. And once above a certain speed the needle can wander by as much as 10mph either way. A previous model I rode maxed out at an indicated 82mph in top gear; this one will hit an indicated 95mph before the rev limiter. ...

Staff bikes: Suzuki GSX-R600 - Silverstone, Sheene & snotty Dunlops

James Keen, 06 May 2010 15:48

The other day I had to film a bike test at Silverstone and since Dunlop were having a tyre launch at the same time, I ended up with a new set of Sportsmart's and some time on track.  I was shooting the first ride of the 257bhp Icon Sheene tribute bike (watch the video here) but inbetween takes I managed to squeeze in 3 sessions testing ...

Michael Neeves, 29 April 2010 09:58

Wow. That’s about all I can say about my first ride out on my Ducati Glasgow/Moto Rapido Ducati 848 challenge bike. If you read my last report you’ll know my 848 was a brand new road bike sitting in Moto Rapido’s showroom last Wednesday and a day later they’d transformed it into a racer. Wind forward to Sunday morning and ...

Staff bikes: Suzuki GSX-R600 - First impressions

James Keen, 26 April 2010 10:18

My gleaming new GSX-R600 turned up at the office at 2.50pm on Friday and by 3 I was on the way up to Skegness for the MCN Live! weekend.  I'd volunteered to help marshall the MCN ride out on Saturday and it was the perfect way to put the first couple of hundred miles on the new bike. It got quite ...

Staff bikes: BMW R1200RT - The RT doesn't disappoint

Andy Downes, 12 April 2010 15:00

I've just woken up in Moffat in Scotland after a great days ride up yesterday on the BMW R1200RT. There's nothing like a long trip to help you gel with a new bike and the RT didn't disappoint managing to combine comfort with more than enough fun. The route up here took me along the A68 through the Northumberland National ...

Staff bikes: BMW R1200RT - Ten days, 650 miles and all is cool…just wet

Andy Downes, 07 April 2010 14:16

At some point over the next few months I might get to find out what the BMW R1200RT I am running as a long term test bike is like to ride in the dry. So far, the bike has been out in the wet, the damp, the slightly less than torrential rain, torrential rain and farmers muck covered roads. I ...

Staff bikes: Victory Hammer S - The coolest bike on the fleet

Chris Newbigging, 29 March 2010 08:30

I have, by far, the coolest long term test bike on fleet. Forget the BMW S1000RR and Ducati Multistrada, my Victory Hammer S is the most widely admired. How can I claim this? I’ve put it to the ten year-old boy test – the industry standard test for any vehicle’s desirability. Parking it up after a sunny Sunday ride, a ...
