500bhp Suzuki Hayabusa vs Honda CBR600RR

Michael Neeves, 16 June 2014 14:16

When Steve Bland – tree surgeon, Red Bull addict and speed freak – told us he could beat a sportsbike around a track on his unlimited class World Speed Record-challenging Hayabusa we were, it has to be said, somewhat doubtful. So we booked two places on a Donington Park trackday and chose a humble Honda CBR600RR as our weapon of ...

Video: Ducati Hypermotard new vs old

Michael Neeves, 22 May 2013 16:34

Ducati's new 821cc Hypermotard replaces two old Hypermotards: the little 796 and its bigger brother, the 1100 Evo. It has a similar-size engine to the small one, but more power than the big one, so what kind of buyer will be attracted to it?

Michael Neeves, 29 January 2013 06:30

The Ducati Panigale and BMW S1000RR we have here might have close to 200bhp, sticky tyres and track-orienated suspension, but power deliveries are smooth, ...

Michael Neeves, 10 February 2012 17:45

UPDATE, 11 Feb, 15:10"We're midway through our day riding the new Panigale and it continues to impress. The 195bhp Superquadro engine is hugely impressive with just the right amount of usable torque to fly out of the corners and monster power for devouring the straights.

Michael Neeves, 11 January 2012 14:41

German firm LSL are becoming famous for creating achingly-cool retro custom bikes, but for owner Jochen Schmitz-Linkweiler they’re merely a hobby – his real business is manufacturing accessories. When MCN visited LSL, we expected to find a small custom shop, but instead were welcomed into a 900 square meter, solar-powered factory turning out everything from handlebars to rearsets. So how ...

Video: Yamaha OW-01 revisited

Back in 1989 Yamaha created the OW-01, a homologation special built for superbike racing. With a staggering £12,700 price tag, it cost more than the Honda RC30 and with only 500 built, the Yamaha was more exclusive too.
