New Yamaha XT660 supermoto on the way

John Westlake, 12 August 2010 11:31

MCN has uncovered designs showing the next-generation Yamaha XT660 supermoto with Ducati Hypermotard-like styling. It’s a far cry from the dumpy current XT, which lacks excitement and desirability compared to thoroughbred European supermotos from the likes of KTM. The new one has a leaner, more exciting look. The detailed patent drawing shows the single-cylinder bike with what appears to be ...

John Westlake, 28 May 2010 17:56

This is the brand new Honda Sabre 1300 cruiser – proof that the firm’s new, more extreme chopper styling, as pioneered on last year’s Fury, is no one-off. The US-only model – revealed in full in next week’s MCN, out on Wednesday June 2 – shares not just the Fury’s 1300cc V-twin, shaft-drive engine, but also many of its styling ...

Ducati Monster 796 colours: They’re not all vile!

John Westlake, 22 April 2010 17:32

Some of Ducati’s new replacement panels for the Monster 696, 796 and 1100 are, admittedly, repulsive. Monster 796 colours: did no-one tell the designers the red frame was staying? But tucked away among the ill-judged mauve/red combos on the press CD are some far more palatable colour-schemes. In fact, they’re stunning. Pillaging from Ducati’s rich history of iconic logos and ...

World’s most important Honda launched

John Westlake, 11 December 2009 17:14

We might assume Honda’s VFR1200F is the most important bike on the Japanese giant’s agenda for 2010, and that the company’s desperately concerned about criticism of its iffy tank range, but chances are we’re wrong.  Instead, it’s more likely Honda will be concentrating on this; the CB Twister – a 9bhp, 186mpg 110cc bike that was launched in India today. ...
