Insider trading: ‘This year we’ll be happy to sell 30 GSX-Rs’

Jon Urry, 14 September 2014 04:00

It’s no secret that new bike sales for Suzuki have been hard of late. The last five years have been particularly tough and this is mainly down to a line-up that is lacking in new and exciting models. If you exclude the new V-Strom 1000, Suzuki dealers haven’t had much to shout about, especially when compared to our European rivals ...

New Street Triple RX spied

Andy Downes, 12 September 2014 17:00

This is the new Triumph Street Triple RX, if the decal on the side panel is to be believed. Spied last week undergoing a test at Cadwell Park in Lincolnshire, the model is clearly an interim update or special edition, rather than a new version of the massively popular triple. Already a rampant sales success for Triumph, the Street Triple ...

September MADness

MCN, 14 August 2014 16:02

If your September evenings are looking a little devoid of humour, you need to head to a theatre in Maidstone, Southend, Newark or Scunthorpe to be entertained by persistent prankster and GP aficionado, Steve Parrish, on his MAD tour. If your September is already maxed out, then the National Motorcycle Museum in Solihull has announced that the tour will roll ...

New Yamaha R1 on the way

MCN, 31 July 2014 11:15

Yamaha is just three months away from unveiling a completely new YZF-R1 superbike that it hopes will have the same class-defining impact the original 1998 model had when it was launched. The new bike retains the basic engine design of the current model, but it is understood to share almost nothing else with the current bike as it attempts to ...

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 And more recently those on the now superseded 33bhp licence restriction were set free on bikes like the CBR250R and Ninja 250.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 ...

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. If you were to believe the under-breath mumbles of the traditional motorcycling press and paid heed to the ...

Riding the icons: Suzuki RG500

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 ...
