John Westlake, 24 October 2011 17:49

Suzuki’s 2012 GSX-R1000 gets new Brembo Monobloc brakes, more midrange power and is 2kg lighter than this year’s model.

The Monotracer: What do you think?

John Westlake, 12 October 2011 09:24

This is a Monotracer; a £100,000 fully-enclosed motorcycle powered by a BMW K1200 engine. In one form or another, they’ve been around for decades, and MCN has generally placed them on the pile marked ‘Interesting but largely irrelevant’ because of their price. But a Monotracer fan keeps pestering us to write more about them in the newspaper so we’d like ...

John Westlake, 25 August 2011 17:16
