After years of bubbling just below the surface, the 'café-racer scene', this once underground segment of the custom-bike world now finds itself cresting the mainstream wave; shows on Discovery Turbo, the celebrated launch of bikes such as BMW's recent NineT and the resurgence of old, classic brands as trendy fashion labels (see the recently launched, Kate Moss-fronted Matchless clothing line; ...

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.

MCN, 17 January 2007 11:30
