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

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 ...

Staff Blog: Today is a good day…

The last couple of months haven’t been easy. I’ve seen my colleagues at MCN come bouncing into the office having received their long term test bikes for the year. I however have been forced to do my commute up the A1 in a people carrier, which as the weather has improved has become increasingly soul destroying. But, today that all ...

2012 KTM Duke 690 first ride: Duke for the masses

KTM’s 2012 690 Duke isn’t just an evolution of the hard core Duke - it’s a complete revolution: an all-new bike - 90% new in fact, with just 10% of its components shared with its predecessor. The biggest surprise is in the looks department. Gone is the hard-edged supermotard appearance and in its place a more regular-looking naked bike albeit ...

Staff bikes: Yamaha Super Tenere - Here we go again

Having clocked 4500 miles on the big Super Tenere so far this year, life is good. It's not the sharpest-handling or most exciting big adventure bike out there, but as an all-round package it's certainly grown on me. The chassis is incredibly well balanced and combined, the engine civilised, it's comfortable and easy to ride, which is ultimately what a ...
