First ride on Honda’s Varadero 125

Anonymous, 03 June 2001 00:00

Like its bigger brother, this Varadero uses a V-twin, but it has a learner-friendly 125cc capacity.That’s not really enough to cope with gusting headwinds, reducing your rpm to 10,000 instead of 12,000 and just 60mph on the clock.When a hill was added into the mix, it began shedding revs and speed faster than a wannabe model ditching her clothes for ...

Magni’s retro masterpiece

Anonymous, 27 May 2001 00:00

The late ’60s and early ’70s will be remembered for plenty of things. It was the era of Afghan coats, stacked boots, keep on trucking badges and hair that was long at the back and short on top.Weeding the garden meant something totally different to what it means now, and when you travelled abroad you always knew the weight of ...

First ride on Honda’s VTX1800

Anonymous, 20 May 2001 00:00

You want big bore? You want V-twin? You want cruiser? Well they don’t come much bigger bore and certainly no more V-twin or cruise-worthy than Honda’s new VTX1800.It’s strangely ironic that in a sports bike world, where bigger nearly always means faster, custom bikes seem to get slower as cubic capacity rises. The 1600cc Yamaha WildStar, for instance, though full ...

Army goes diesel

Anonymous, 06 May 2001 00:00

THE army has spent a quarter of a million pounds developing a diesel-fuelled bike which goes 120mph on one gallon, but makes just 24bhp.Based on a Kawasaki KLR650, the 580cc Combat Military Motorcycle has been designed by the British Army’s college at Shrivenham, Wiltshire.It is the result of eight year’s work to address the military’s desire to have all their ...

2001 BMW R1150R, K1200RS and R1150RT ridden through France

Anonymous, 15 April 2001 00:00

SPLATT! A direct hit, smack bang in the middle of my visor. Here comes another. Splatt! This one’s even bigger. It looks like the daddy. Splatt! Again, it’s a bull’s eye and the front of my lid is starting to look very messy indeed.But that’s what happens in the summer, isn’t it? Your lid gets splattered in flies. And this ...

Guzzi reveals limited edition versions of its California

Even the chrome is restrained. It will be available ...

CapoNord looks ready for anything

Anonymous, 04 March 2001 00:00

THE CapoNord is going to be a genuine rival for bikes like BMW’s R1150GS and Honda’s Varadero.It even coped with a little bit of off-road riding in Sardinia. " I tried it on a bit of green laning Italian style…gravel and dust. I even went up a few hills and round the odd bush, " said MCN’s Bill Spurdens.He was ...

Have your cake. And eat it

Anonymous, 11 February 2001 00:00

THREE-and-a-half hours ago, this bike was sat in the palm-shaded car park of a Sicilian hotel. Its futuristic, angular lines and silver colourscheme couldn’t have been in starker contrast to the leafy, romantic setting of the peach-coloured building, where sun-kissed young couples lazed around beside the blue-tiled swimming pool.Four hours later it’s in a much less relaxed setting, dragging its ...

Hey, hey it’s a Monkey bike for the new millennium

Anonymous, 21 January 2001 00:00

HONDA is to mark the 40th anniversary of the Monkey bike by creating an up-to-date version of one of the strangest and best-loved machines ever made. In standard form, the bike should be capable of more than 30mph - not fast, but still a scary proposition on a machine smaller than a child's bicycle. One of the main selling points ...

Just nipping out to buy another RC30, dear

Anonymous, 01 August 2000 00:00

SOME people collect stamps, others collect beer bottles. Some are even lucky enough to own a few bikes. But there’s one man for whom only the very best will do – that’s why he’s got a collection of almost every road-going version of a World Superbike racer you can buy.We’re not just talking about a Ducati 916 and a standard ...
