The SPecial One

Jon Urry, 14 September 2014 09:30

Honda’s SP-1, or the VTR1000 SP-1 RC51 to give it its proper name, will always hold a very special place in motorcycle history. This is a bike born out of necessity – not to mention a considerable degree of frustration… Despite having HRC’s full weight behind it, the exotic RC45 was a flop both on the track and in showrooms ...

Hesketh 24 first ride

Phil West, 13 August 2014 11:30

The British revival rumbles on. Or in this case THUNDERS. And then some. Hesketh is the latest UK heritage motorcycle brand to be reborn, (following Triumph in 1990, Norton in 2009 and Ariel last month). And, with numerous others in development (Brough, Matchless and Metisse), having a union flag on your bike’s tank is clearly a fashionable place to be ...

We ride the Ariel Ace at Goodwood

Michael Neeves, 09 July 2014 10:42

It’s hard to believe the Ariel Ace cruiser really is a new bike. It’s seemingly come out of nowhere, is made by a car firm, and yet it’s already better than many established production bikes. The Ariel Ace cruiser is impressive during my quick blast up and down the famous Goodwood hillclimb. It rides beautifully and, crucially, doesn’t try to ...

Simply Ballistic: Can MV's new Dragster 800 out-gun its rivals?

Adam Child, 07 July 2014 16:26

The MV Agusta Dragster is the latest model to come from the iconic Italian brand – and it's a bit of a confused beast. Using the 798cc triple and cycle parts from the Brutale 800 roadster, it has a design similar to that of Ducati's Diavel performance cruiser and even runs a huge 200-section rear Pirelli, but more for aesthetic ...

Golden oldie: Triumph T595 and 955i

MCN, 06 July 2014 11:30

Triumph needed to get it right first time with the T595 Daytona. Back in the sportsbike-crazy ’90s, nothing less was going to cut it. With Honda’s FireBlade having set the standard, being good was never going to be good enough. Outstanding was the only way to be. Happily, the British bike-buying public was so sold on the idea of the ...

Whitham and Lowes on bikes, battles, and the KTM Freeride

Michael Guy, 02 July 2014 11:16

Give two racers dirt bikes and a place to ride and the chances are you won’t see them for hours – or until one of them needs an ambulance. Luckily when KTM lent Sam Lowes and James Whitham a pair of Freerides, MCN grabbed one too, which meant we could get in on the conversation with two of the most ...

First Ride: Honda CBR650F

Phil West, 27 June 2014 13:58

Grey things don’t normally engender excitement. Grey is the colour of school socks, toilet roll tubes and accountants’ worsted suits. But here grey is also the colour of one of the most eagerly-awaited bikes of 2014: Honda’s all-new, completely revitalised and reinvented CBR.But if the colour of this world first test bike, the machine we’d prised out of Honda’s grasp ...

A short spin this evening will be followed by a full day of riding the new naked middleweight tomorrow. This is the latest Monster to come from the Ducati factory, hot on the heels of the all-new 1200 Monster earlier this ...
