Racing blog: Vari-Trac BMW Park Lane S1000RR

Michael Neeves, 17 May 2010 09:58

After sampling BMW Park Lane’s MRO Stocksport S1000RR at Brands GP on Thursday I got the amazing opportunity to race it at the historic Kent track at the weekend. Team Vari-Trac BMW Park Lane looked after me alongside regular riders: young hotshot Stefan Capella and the super-fast Steve Mercer. The team is headed up by Rick Capella and runs with ...

Triumph Thunderbird gets hot-rodded

Michael Neeves, 30 April 2010 11:58

In standard trim the Triumph Thunderbird has a grunty 1597cc parallel twin-cylinder engine, beautiful steering and solid stability. Next week in MCN we reveal a Thunderbird that’s like that, but more so. Thanks to modifications by dealer Jack Lilley, this ABS-equipped Thunderbird ‘Hot Rod Special’ looks that bit meaner, has a meatier soundtrack and even sharper handling. Like most of ...

Australia Blog: Day 6 - Wayne Gardner's kids, future GP heroes?

Michael Neeves, 13 January 2010 13:46

Today I learned the secret to the success of Aussie world champions like Mick Doohan, Casey Stoner, Troy Bayliss and Wayne Gardner. It’s dirt track racing.    Brought up riding small-capacity motocross bikes on tracks that are like road-racing circuits, but are dirt instead of tarmac (so have left and right bends, not just an oval) as kids, they learned ...

Australia Blog: Day 2 - Ducati Streetfighter in Sydney

Michael Neeves, 09 January 2010 18:00

After an eight-hour sleeping pill-induced shut-eye session, I woke this morning to see the Australian sunshine for the first time since landing. God, I love it here. An English mate of mine, Andy, who now lives in Oz, picked me up to collect the Ducati Streetfighter S press bike I’ll be using for the week. He’s just bought a standard ...

Neevesy's predicted 2010 top five motorcycles

Michael Neeves, 29 December 2009 13:30

The global financial crisis seems to have hit the Japanese motorcycle manufacturers the hardest. There’s very little to get excited about from them next year except for Kawasaki’s funky Z1000. One notable exception is the Honda VFR1200, but it’s clear it doesn’t live up to the hype, so doesn’t make it onto my top five new bikes list of 2010. ...

New Aprilia RSV4 R on the road!

Michael Neeves, 25 December 2009 13:00

MCN raved about Aprilia’s new ‘budget’ RSV4R (if you can call £12,743 budget) when we rode it at Mugello in November. It was all going well until five of the launch bikes suffered terminal con rod failures.  Aprilia were keen to prove this mechanical hiccup was a one-off, so invited us back to Portugal to ride it again on the ...

2010 Kawasaki Z1000 first ride: “Japan’s best super-naked”

Michael Neeves, 18 November 2009 17:56

Michael Neeves has just finished riding the all-new Kawasaki Z1000 that hopes to better the Triumph Speed Triple, KTM Super Duke and Ducati Streetfighter. He sent back this report: “On paper the new Z1000 looks like it could be a full-bloodied ‘super naked’ – an intoxicating mixture of raucous engine, sharp handling and bad attitude. In reality it’s something slightly ...
