Ducati's rivals are reeling after retired Ducati legend Troy bayliss matched his fastest ever time around Mugello, in a sensational three-day test of the new 1199.

300mph, jet-assisted Hayabusa: meet the Bullet 1236

Guy Procter, 23 June 2011 09:12

So this is the theory: a bike could go a lot faster on the straights if it didn't have wheels dragging on the ground. The solution? A small jet engine and a few subtle wings contributing enough thrust and lift to hold the bike a metre off the ground at 300mph along long straights. Manoeuvrability is promised 'excellent' in the ...

MV Agusta F3 first ride: "Unusual but intuitive" says designer Adrian Morton

Guy Procter, 14 June 2011 14:19

The designer of MV's new F3 Adrian Morton has told MCN what the bike is like to ride. Naturally he thinks it's good, but given it's his first ever ride on the machine he styled, and he's a regular rider just like the rest of us rather than a superhero Stig-style tester, his observation the handling feels 'unusual but intuitive' is ...

World's first Harley-Davidson Road King backflip nearly works

Guy Procter, 02 June 2011 15:44

You’re looking at the first time in history a Harley-Davidson Road King has been asked to perform a back flip. You’re also looking at a very lucky man.

Piaggio Yourban 300LT: an English proofreader short of genius

Guy Procter, 27 May 2011 17:16

Piaggio's new £5699 Yourban 300 LT is so clever in so many ways it would be a shame if its stupid name got in the way of anyone warming to it. It's a lighter-weight, less troll-like version of the MP3 LT, designed to appeal more to chic inner-city types. Like its non-Yourban MP3 LT sibling it's got the two front ...

Video: the Ducati Diavel that went racing

Guy Procter, 27 May 2011 16:47

It's got the power to out-drag a Ducati 1198 and it can out-brake one too. So why is nobody racing the highly-acclaimed new Ducati Diavel? Well, several reasons actually, but thinking it through would have taken all the fun out of finding out. You can find out more about exactly how this experiment ended up in next week's MCN.

New MV Agusta F4 RR - quicker yet slower

Guy Procter, 11 May 2011 12:57

MV Agusta has seized on a critical lull in new sportsbike activity to launch the most powerful production superbike ever, the F4 RR ‘Corsacorta’. MV hopes the £17,999, 201bhp, 998cc halo version of 2010’s relaunched F4 will take advantage of an increasingly jaded-looking field of competitors, and steal a march on Ducati’s new flagship superbike, due in November. But interestingly none ...

Video: S1000RR faster than an M3 even in the wet

Guy Procter, 03 May 2011 17:00

BMW's M3 saloon is lame, according to a shock video admission by the firm itself. It’s released this video of its ‘fastest’ four-wheeler racing its fastest bike in what we can only interpret as a farewell to the car-making business. They could have waited for a dry day to make it a fair fight, but no, so determined were they ...

Guy Procter, 28 April 2011 09:42

Royal dude Prince William rode his Ducati 1198S Corse home from football training last night, the Sun reports - in a welcome and defiant up-yours to anti-bike society. Clad in tracksuit, trainers, paddock jacket and tinted visor the MCN-reading Prince managed to potter the few well-lit miles home to Clarence House on his '180mph, 1100cc superbike' without so much as ...
