Staff bikes: Honda Hornet 600 - MCT suspension

James Keen, 21 January 2011 10:30

I don’t think I’m alone in being a little bit scared of suspension jargon. I’m in awe of the guys who can bounce a bike up and down and tell if it’s any good or not on feel alone. But despite not being able to describe the problem in technical terms, I’ve known for a while that my Hornet’s suspension ...

Honda PCX125: first stop-start two-wheeler

James Keen, 25 August 2010 12:15

Honda’s PCX125 is the first two-wheeler with fuel-saving stop-start tech. Pull up to some lights and after three seconds of idling, the engine cuts out. A blinking orange light marked ‘stand by’ (like a DVD player) lets you know you’re in ‘idle stop’ mode. A twist of the throttle fires it back up again with next to no delay. Find ...

So it was surreal to end up in the start line queue behind the likes of Chris Walker, Danny Webb and Steve Parrish ready to compete in this year’s Thundersprint.  Before the event I was getting mixed signals from other MCN staff, which didn't help the nerves. ...

Staff bikes: Honda Hornet 600 - The neighbours won't be happy...

James Keen, 19 April 2010 15:41

I had the day off today so I decided to get my new Mivv X-Cone fitted to my Hornet 600. It was a pretty simple job to swap out the bulky standard can for the new almost retro-looking cone shaped Mivv. My only real problem (besides lack of proper tools and my own cack-handedness) was with the original silencer clamp, which was so ...
