Video: Yamaha MT-09 takes on rivals

MCN, 16 October 2013 16:15

Yamaha's new three-cylinder 847cc MT-09 is one of the most exciting new bikes to come out of Japan in years, aiming to be the best in one of the most interesting emerging classes; the middleweight naked. We've already ridden it at its launch and we were impressed, bar a couple of niggles, but now it's time to pitch it against ...

Staff Blog: To Jet Wash or Not to Jet Wash?

Alison Silcox, 25 September 2013 09:50

  I lent my bike to a colleague last week for the MCN Awards ride out and after an awfully wet ride down to the venue in Dorking, followed by a couple of hours riding through the Surrey Hills, the bike was returned looking very second hand. I’m not one for jet-washing but it seemed the only option to get ...

Staff Blog: Too Many Fazers, Too Little Time

Alison Silcox, 24 August 2013 08:15

I’ve not just been riding the Yamaha Fazer8 this week, for a forthcoming long term feature I’ve been out on my mate’s Yamaha FZS600 Fazer and the big brother of the range the FZ1 Fazer. I was really surprised how easy and comfortable I felt hopping from one bike to the other. Each were quite similar to ride in some ...

Staff Blog: You Can't Beat a Bit of Bike Therapy

Alison Silcox, 17 August 2013 19:26

I've been down in the dumps for the last couple of weeks and I’ve really not felt like going out on the Yamaha Fazer8 but today I thought enough is enough and decided to blow away some cobwebs. The Fazer8 isn’t the most exciting of bikes but the thing with riding any bike is it takes all your concentration and within only a ...

Staff Blog: How’s that for the ultimate in accessories?

Alison Silcox, 01 July 2013 07:30

  I’m not a slave to fashion and wouldn’t normally be classed as a girlie-girl but as a bit of fun I thought I’d add a little colour coded accessory to my Fazer8, well not exactly to the bike but more to me. The blue wheels and detailing on the bike aren’t to everyone’s taste, at first I thought they ...

Staff Blog: What is it with this blinking weather?

Alison Silcox, 13 May 2013 08:19

Not sure what it is with the local councils, they must have come into money, three of the roads I used have been re-surfaced and are covered in chippings. A bugger to ride over and getting peppered by oncoming traffic actually smarted a little. The bike’s back from the first service and with the next one not being due till ...

Yamaha WR450F - Yamaha’s four-stroke fight-back

Jonathan Bentman, 06 January 2012 11:32

A decade ago Yamaha led the four-stroke revolution in dirt bikes. By taking its high-revving, R1-style, five-valve technology and applying it, first in motocross with the YZ400F, then enduro with the WR400F and massively successful WR250F, the Japanese firm rode the vanguard into a new era. It won world championships, hearts and sales. But eventually European competition got the better ...
