MCN, 09 April 2014 16:08

The V4 VFR was one of Honda's most respected bikes of the 80s and 90s until it somehow went wrong with the VTEC version in 2002.

Video: KTM 1290 Super Duke R group test

MCN, 10 January 2014 16:57

Triumph's Speed Triple is MCN's long-standing king of the traditional naked litre-class bikes, free of traction control and rider modes. At the other end of the spectrum is Aprilia's Tuono V4R, which grabbed all the accolades with brutal power and myriad electronic rider aids.

The Z1000 has been the most serious Japanese 'super naked' since 2003, and Kawasaki have determinedly reinvented it ever since. For 2014, it's re-styled and eschews electronics in favour of refinement, quality and value. It's a bold move and could be a clever one. brightcove.createExperiences();
