Staff bikes: KTM Duke 125 - If you ask an expert...

Dan Aspel, 27 October 2011 16:26

In my hands the MCN award-winning 125 Duke has proved to be a reliable commuter, tourer and general muck-about bike. It has impressed me. But would it impress a half-decent rider? I handed the keys to MCN senior road tester and NW200 veteran Adam Child. After a quick blast, a few stoppies, a burn-out and valiant attempts at a wheelie, ...

This immaculate Kawasaki KX500 hybrid is one motocross racer's response to the rising costs of four-stroke off-road competition machines. Chris Place, 21, hopes the blend of an easily-fixed two-stroke engine and modern chassis will enable him to compete on a knock-down budget. Built from a 2008 KXF450 chassis and a 1994 KX500 two-stroke, the KX500CF (for Custom Fabricated) was built ...

A 22-year-old Suzuki GSX-R1100 with a homemade turbo defeated dozens of modern GSX-R1000s, turbo Hayabusas and a BMW S1000RR in last weekend’s world wheelie championships at Elvington, Yorkshire.

Video: Aprilia USA in Space Shuttle tribute

Dan Aspel, 08 July 2011 10:39

Aprilia’s USA division has released the following tribute to the now decommissioned space shuttle program. It’s essentially an RSV4 advert, but with enough heart-stopping shots of 81 million horsepower rockets to justify the association. The Aprilia team says: “Crossing performance boundaries never thought possible and forging new frontiers in innovation… making and racing motorcycles wouldn't be entirely alien to the ...

Dan Aspel, 18 April 2011 15:05

Lady Gaga's new motorbike-themed album artwork - panned by The Guardian as a "cheap Photoshop job" - has received the most damning criticism possible... the bike designer hates it.
