Staff Bikes: Ducati Multistrada - What a year!

Marc Potter, 03 February 2012 11:55

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: MV Agusta Brutale - Life's more fun naked

Andy Downes, 03 February 2012 10:54

It's been an amazing year with a bike that managed to combine a muscular engine with fantastic styling and almost daily use, including commuting and lovely trips on some amazing British roads. The huge 23-litre fuel tank gives an easy 220-mile range - brilliant for a naked bike which is comfortable enough for all-day riding. Collecting the bike from the ...

Staff bikes: Triumph Tiger 800 - Tiger’s stripes well earned

Ped Baker, 23 December 2011 11:00

Riding a motorcycle from Peterborough to Brussels and back in a day in November is no picnic. The 600 miles aren’t the issue, but being cold is. Even with good riding kit, draughts start to creep in and on a long trip, once you’re cold, you’re cold for a long time. To prepare the Tiger I wired in a connector ...

Staff bikes: Suzuki V-Strom 650 - Brussels: Further than you think!

John Westlake, 22 December 2011 16:00

I thought Brussels was an easy day’s ride from MCN’s Peterborough HQ, so was first to agree to join senior reporter Steve Farrell on his rabble-rousing EU protest ride last month. In my brain, I foresaw a quick blat to Dover, a tootle down the E40 from Calais, chips and mayonnaise for lunch followed by some shouting at MEPs then ...

Staff bikes: Yamaha Super Tenere - The continent-trotter

Michael Guy, 08 December 2011 13:16

The wheels of the big Yamaha Super Tenere have barely stopped turning. It’s been into France, Belgium and Germany for the Nurburgring WSB round followed by a jaunt down to Magny Cours for another WSB race. In between I’ve been to the depths of Devon to Dartmouth and it also got me to Snetterton for a track day, and that’s ...

Staff bikes: Victory Cross Country - Victory on a roll

Mark Holmes, 10 November 2011 11:09

After six months with the Cross Country, I finally get to stretch its legs on a 1300-mile tour of Spain and Portugal. It turned out to be an eventful trip with plenty of ups and downs. The ups start on our first full day in northern Spain, heading for the mountains on the N621, a fabulous twist of Tarmac that ...

Staff bikes: KTM Duke 125 - If you ask an expert...

Dan Aspel, 27 October 2011 16:26

In my hands the MCN award-winning 125 Duke has proved to be a reliable commuter, tourer and general muck-about bike. It has impressed me. But would it impress a half-decent rider? I handed the keys to MCN senior road tester and NW200 veteran Adam Child. After a quick blast, a few stoppies, a burn-out and valiant attempts at a wheelie, ...

Staff bikes: Triumph Tiger 800 - Taming the Tiger's thirst

Ped Baker, 27 October 2011 15:50

Since returning from Spain a while back I've had numerous emails from Tiger owners concerning fuel consumption. It appears that quite a few are finding it a little on the thirsty side compared to their BMW F800GS-owning friends. On French and Spanish autoroutes at a steady 85mph with pillion and luggage, I got a reasonable 45mpg from my Tiger. Dropping ...

Staff bikes: Suzuki GSR750 - GSR takes on the Nurburgring

Liam Marsden, 27 October 2011 14:55

Rising at 5:30am on a day off isn’t exactly what I’d call relaxing, but with the GSR already loaded up and sat waiting patiently in the garage and the Nurburgring as the finishing point for the day I was up surprisingly quick. Meeting my Dad’s mate Dave at Peterborough services we then met my Dad somewhere on the M20 before ...
