Staff Bikes: Ducati Multistrada - What a year!

That’s it. Time to send my Multistrada 1200S back. And I’ve never been sadder to see a bike go. It fits into my life perfectly and that’s saying something as I’ve owned, run and tested just about every single bike built in the last 17 years. Even after running two Multistrada 1200s (the first one was written off by a ...

Staff bikes: Ducati Diavel - No pain, no gain

As with all my motorcycle adventures, it started with poor timing and a torrential downpour. The panic to make the 8.15pm Brittany Ferries sailing from Portsmouth to St Malo meant I had to average more than 60mph over the 195-mile journey, which meant some swift progress on damp roads. This was the first truly wet journey on the bike which ...

Staff bikes: Ducati Monster 1100 Evo - Monster's hot in the city

The first Thursday of each month is Italian night at London's Ace Cafe, so before the 160-mile round trip becomes a teeth-grittingly sub-zero affair, I made the effort to head down after work a few weeks back. The promise of clear skies and good company kept spirits high on the 5.30pm slog down the A1, thankfully against the tide of London's ...

Staff bikes: Ducati Monster 1100 Evo - The modern cafe racer

Over the months that I've owned the Monster, many have asked me "What's it like?" My default answer is "A real, good, honest motorcycle". Which sounds like damning it with faint praise; that's far from my intention. What I mean to say is that this stripped back, stylish, air-cooled Italian V-twin, punting out a modest 100bhp at the crank, is - for ...

Staff bikes: Ducati Diavel - A do-anything bike with mega attitude

The weather gods have been smiling upon us, which has meant that the Diavel has hardly stopped running over the last two months, whether it be commuting or a full-on 200-mile round trip to find some good corners and meet up with fellow Ducati riders and admirers. It's been a dream come true. I've a bold statement to make: I'm ...

Staff bikes: Ducati Diavel - A few tentative laps at Silverstone

This weekend was Ducati Days at Silverstone and it would've been rude not to attend and take the Diavel around the GP circuit. The first session of the afternoon arrived and I headed out with Maria Costello MBE to get some idea of where I was going. Silverstone is so huge, I was truly lost, no idea when, where and at what speed to turn ...

Staff bikes: Ducati Diavel - It's almost time!

My excitement is mounting by the bucket load as after a few weeks of waiting I have finally been given the date for collection of my Ducati Diavel long termer for 2011. On Monday I'll be getting the train to Ducati Coventry for a 12 o'clock pickup then straight on to Road Angel at Silverstone to start the ball rolling ...

Staff Bikes: Ducati Multistrada - It continues to impress

If you’re going on a long trip then the first thing you need is a motorcycle that’s capable of covering big miles in comfort with luggage on board. That’s the Multistrada 1200S then. The next thing you need is a decent set of tyres that will grip in the bends but do plenty of motorways miles. Before a trip to ...
