Old machinery tests the soul, patients and mechanical nous more than most. The Goodwood Revival - home to more pomp and pageantry than most established racing series’ ...

250cc special: Make room for a small one

Anonymous, 18 July 2014 12:23

There’s always been something special about quarter-litre sports bikes. A generation of learners grew up riding machines like Yamaha’s RD250LC, while wannabe GP riders could live-out their 250GP fantasies on bikes like Honda’s amazing grey import NSR250SP. And more recently those on the now superseded 33bhp licence restriction were set free on bikes like the CBR250R and Ninja 250. So ...

Golden oldie: Triumph T595 and 955i

MCN, 06 July 2014 11:30

Triumph needed to get it right first time with the T595 Daytona. Back in the sportsbike-crazy ’90s, nothing less was going to cut it. With Honda’s FireBlade having set the standard, being good was never going to be good enough. Outstanding was the only way to be. Happily, the British bike-buying public was so sold on the idea of the ...

Old Wheels, New Waves

Steve Hunt, 04 July 2014 16:42

A few weeks ago, MCN rode down to the south of France for a custom motorcycle and surfing festival. We can almost hear your sighs from here, but maybe - just maybe - there's more to this scene than meets the eye.

Michael Neeves, 04 July 2014 09:30

This Suzuki RG500 is in superb condition. It’s bog-stock, like the bike then-MCN road tester Mat Oxley would’ve raved about back in 1985. Like the rest of the biking world, Oxley was in awe of this road-going 500cc GP replica, saying in the September 25 1985 issue of MCN: “In its powerband the RG500 is a vicious motorcycle that’s more ...

Yamaha MT-125 first ride

Andy Davidson, 19 June 2014 14:04

The new Yamaha MT-125 marks the third arrival in the MT family. The single-cylinder is technically a naked version of Yamaha’s refreshed-for-2014 YZF-R125 except with an upright riding position and street fighter design, taking its styling cues from its MT-09 and 07 siblings. So we have an already great bike, peppered with upgraded components, for less money than the faired ...
