Staff Bikes: Ducati Multistrada - loan leaves an impression

Andy Downes, 22 November 2010 16:36

Getting my hands on the Editor’s Ducati Multistrada 1200 was meant to be for just one afternoon so I could do some advanced rider training, but after some begging it turned out to last nearly a week. The reason was simple…I bloody loved it and the thought of giving it back to Marc Potter, or indeed anyone, was horrible.    I’d ...

Staff bikes: XR1200X - control freak

Ped Baker, 14 July 2010 10:36

I’ve been riding the XR1200 for a few weeks now and even though I’m smitten with it there’s still room for improvement. The first thing I’ve changed is the levers. The original Harley levers had a bizarre dog–leg shape that meant the backs were very close to my knuckles. Every time I changed gear I had to nearly remove my ...

Staff bikes: Suzuki GSX-R600 - MSV Rider Development Program

James Keen, 08 July 2010 12:59

When the shiny new GSX-R600 turned up at the MCN office, people kept asking me what I was going to change on the bike. My answer was and is: Nothing. The fact is this bike is already a lot better than I am. If something needs to be improved on, it’s me.    That’s why – for less than the price ...

Ian Jubb, 14 April 2010 10:21

The first change to the look of the BMW comes in the subtle form of new hand guards.

Staff bikes: BMW R1200GS - 3000 miles in 2 weeks

Ian Jubb, 13 April 2010 13:48

After 3000 miles in three weeks it's now the second time to top up the oil. It seems to use an awful lot of the golden stuff. I read on forums that this would be the case but didn't expect to have to put so much in. Only my two stroke lambretta uses more!    Pictured is the nifty little key ...

Staff Bikes: Victory Hammer S - Time for tea

Chris Newbigging, 01 April 2010 09:33

This is only my second blog entry, and I’m already cheating by blogging on someone else’s Hammer activity. German magazine Motorrad has replicated BMW’s viral video for the S1000RR, where the superbike appears to pull a table cloth from under a fully laid table. There’s some doubt as to whether the BMW really did, but using a Victory Hammer, the ...

James Keen, 24 March 2010 15:50
