Staff bikes: Honda Hornet 600 - MCT suspension

James Keen, 21 January 2011 10:30

I don’t think I’m alone in being a little bit scared of suspension jargon. I’m in awe of the guys who can bounce a bike up and down and tell if it’s any good or not on feel alone.

Staff bikes: Honda Hornet 600 - pitted forks

James Keen, 18 January 2011 09:30

My Hornet's forks - which are actually used forks from a breakers, following a crash a couple of years ago - were pitted badly on the stanchions. The suspension is so tired that I want to get it looked at by a professional, but it's not worth doing this until that’s fixed.   I considered everything from biting the bullet and ordering new OE parts ...

Honda PCX125: first stop-start two-wheeler

James Keen, 25 August 2010 12:15

Honda’s PCX125 is the first two-wheeler with fuel-saving stop-start tech. Pull up to some lights and after three seconds of idling, the engine cuts out. A blinking orange light marked ‘stand by’ (like a DVD player) lets you know you’re in ‘idle stop’ mode. A twist of the throttle fires it back up again with next to no delay. Find ...

The evolution of the Honda Fireblade

James Keen, 13 March 2009 09:52

Since it's arrival in 1992, the flagship Honda Fireblade has continued to re-invent itself and stay at the forefront of sportsbike development. In 1992, the original Fireblade moved the goal posts by focusing on weight rather than horsepower. The competition were claiming more bhps, but the blade's 185kg weight undercut them all by at least 15kg and changed things forever. Thinking of trading in? ...
