Norton: 'What we learned last year created this bike'

MCN, 23 May 2013 13:52

The results, seen for the first time in an MCN world exclusive, are an almost completely new ...

2013 Aprilia RSV4 ridden

Michael Neeves, 25 October 2012 07:00

This is what motorcycling dreams are made of: a sunny day, a dry track and one of the world's best superbikes to play on. I'm talking about the lightly-revised new 2013 Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC. It's available from the dealers next Feburary and costs the same as the current model - £16,599. You're not going to feel the new bike's ...

MV Agusta F3 fuelling problem fixed

MCN, 04 July 2012 16:37

The MV Agusta F3 was one of the most eagerly anticipated sports bikes in recent years, but when it was launched back in February it was a huge disappointment. Chronic fuelling problems and poor running blighted the Italian firm's new supersport rocket, putting it way behind the Japanese competition and most worryingly for them, its intended rival: the Triumph Daytona ...

Smart money superbikes - the best used examples

MCN, 15 June 2012 11:47

The 1000cc sports bike class has ripped in two and there are now two distinct camps. In the ‘extreme’ corner there’s the super-powerful, electronically-enhanced superbikes, like the Aprilia RSV4, BMW S1000RR, Ducati Panigale and Kawasaki ZX-10R. Over in the other is the new Fireblade, GSX-R1000 and R1. These much-loved Japanese machines are the old guard and have all been worthy ...

Ducati burns the history books with new 1199 superbike

Guy Procter, 01 June 2011 10:14

The first spy shot of Ducati's 1198-replacing new superbike confirms the firm is a lot less sentimental about traditional Ducati characteristics than many fans. The result is the most extreme V-twin ever, but with its RSV4-alike tail, Kawasaki-style side-mounted shock and Buell-pattern belly-mounted exhaust it's without question less distinctively Ducati. But the fact is the firm can't afford to care. ...

Poll: Are hyperbikes still relevant today?

MCN, 14 May 2010 15:30

It’s 20 years since the launch of the first ‘hyperbike’ – Kawasaki’s awesome 173mph ZZ-R1100 which reigned world’s fastest production bike through the first half of the 1990s until usurped by new hyperbikes such as Honda’s CBR1100XX Super Blackbird and Suzuki’s Hayabusa.    But today we have a new breed of superbikes – awesomely powerful race replicas such as BMW’s S1000RR and Aprilia’s ...
