Editor's picks: Honda CB1300

MCN, 17 October 2011 17:00

Evoking memories of the CB1100, the Honda CB1300 was launched as a naked muscle bike in 2003 as a rival to the Suzuki GSX1400 and Yamaha XJR1300. Where the GSX and XJR use air/oil-cooled engines in keeping with muscle bike tradition, the CB1300 has a torque-laden 1284cc water-cooled motor that rockets the Honda forward with a smooth and vibration free ...

Guy Procter, 14 October 2011 10:44

Honda has opened a mini-website dedicated to the new 2012 Fireblade. It promises to tell the full story of the bike which will mark the 20th anniversary of the Fireblade series next year.

Staff bikes: Honda VFR800X Crossrunner - It's time to retyre

Phil West, 05 October 2011 17:01

Time for a change. The turning of three-thousand-odd miles has seen both the fading of Crossrunner's OE Pirelli Scorpions' ability and my faith in them. Don't get me wrong: the Scorps aren't a bad tyre. They've been consistent and predictable enough (in a humdrum sort of way) in all sorts of riding, from routine 30-mile work commutes in all kinds ...

Way cool Honda VT750S special editions

Guy Procter, 29 September 2011 10:20

Honda has added 'championship white' paint, speed stripe and retro logo to its VT750S, significantly boosting the appeal of what was already perhaps the most effortlessly cool bike in its range. Harking back to Honda's 70s-America adopted heartland, the special editions come in red- or yellow/gold-detailed versions and come at a modest £250 premium over the base graphite black model, ...

Editor's picks: 2002-2003 Honda CBR900RR Fireblade

MCN, 26 September 2011 16:00

Honda has just unveiled the 2012 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade, marking 20 years since the first Honda Fireblade arrived on the scene, designed by Tadao Baba. The 2002-2003 854cc Fireblade was the last of the Tadao Baba designed Fireblades' and also the final CBR900RR Firelade. Later Honda CBR1000RR Fireblades were faster but heavier and less involving. Like any Honda CBR900RR Fireblade ...

Video: 2012 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade

MCN, 26 September 2011 15:50

This is apparently the first official video of the new Honda Fireblade, seemingly intended for an American audience, that shows the bike in action and emphasises the details revealed by MCN, including the Showa 43mm Big Piston Forks, 'balance-free' rear shock, revised fairing and dual layer panels and chin spoiler under the nose cone to aid stability at speed.

Honda's new 700cc naked: how good is it going to be?

Guy Procter, 26 September 2011 14:03

Honda's kicking the ball into the biggest open goal it can find launching a 77mpg 700cc parallel twin super scooter at the height of fuel price paranoia. But it's not the version that will attract most interest among existing motorcyclists, for whom getting on any kind of step-thru is like volunteering for puberty reversal – either way foregoing both their ...

Honda launches new 77mpg 700cc parallel twin family with Integra super-scoot

Guy Procter, 26 September 2011 11:02

This is the 2012 Honda Integra – a 700cc parallel-twin-engined production version of the Mid Concept super scooter shown last year. Pitching into the huge-selling TMAX market with a second-generation dual-clutch gearbox and staggering claimed economy of 77mpg, it's almost certainly the most significant new bike Honda launch in 2012 - if not for you then certainly for the firm. ...
