Staff blog: The toughest test ever!

This year is going to epic, one I’m going to look back on for years to come and it’s mainly going to be down to my lovely ZX-6R. Just last week I took delivery of my new Kawasaki and unusually for me, I’m treating her with kid-gloves, nice and gentle for the first few hundred miles, before unleashing its full ...

Used Buying Guide: Kawasaki ZX-10R

We can safely say Kawasaki didn’t really produce an out-and-out sports bike with the ZX-9R, especially towards the end of its life cycle, when it was facing competition from the mighty Yamaha R1 and Suzuki GSX-R1000. The old 900 was more of a soft sports bike with great power and comfort rather than a cutting edge sportster with razor sharp ...

MCN rides the Britten V1000

‘Outstanding’, ‘amazing’, and ‘work of art’ are all labels liberally applied to the exotic race bikes built by John Britten, but in reality the Britten deserves a unique accolade to celebrate its existence. In many peoples’ minds it’s simply the greatest bike ever made. For me it transcends everything, it’s a dream bike, it was the poster bike I had ...

Ian Watson Spring Cup blog

Racing has its ups and downs, and the Ian Watson Spring Cup at Oliver’s Mount certainly had that! The weather was grim at times; hail stones, driving rain and temperatures struggling to get above freezing, which even caught out the experts like Ryan Farquhar. But then the sun came out.
