MCN at new Ducati Diavel launch today

Michael Neeves, 28 March 2014 09:23

MCN is at the world launch of the second-generation Ducati Diavel in the south of France today.  Senior Road Tester Michael Neeves will be riding the revised sports cruiser, which features Ducati’s new 1198cc Dual Spark Testastretta 11° V-twin engine, first seen in the updated Multistrada last year. Ducati says it’s smoother and gruntier than before, making the same 162bhp, ...

Staff Blog: Down to Ramsgate

Michael Neeves, 05 August 2013 10:05

For the last 11 years, since I moved up to MCN-land from my home town in Ramsgate, I’ve done the 170-mile journey on lots on hundreds of different bikes. Tourers are, of course, the most comfortable, but they’re a bit boring. Sportsbikes are the most fun, but it takes me an hour to unfold myself from the two-odd hours in ...

Staff Blog: Dirty Ducati

Michael Neeves, 22 July 2013 14:26

I’ve been away for over a week testing, but for all that time I’ve been thinking of my filthy Hyperstrada. Covered in thick dust, it looks like it’s spent months abandoned in the Sahara, but all that muck is from being parked-up at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last weekend. Sleeping in the MCN van over the course of the ...

Staff Blog: Hyperstrada – 3588-miles in eight days.

Michael Neeves, 08 July 2013 11:56

  I’ve just got back from my 3588-mile riding holiday to France, Spain and Portugal. It seems weird just riding to work today and not grinding out hundreds of miles in the sunshine, on the wrong side of the road, like I’ve been doing for the past eight days. Although the roads down the west coast of France, across the ...

Staff blog: Hyperstrada on tour

Michael Neeves, 03 July 2013 14:58

I'm half way through a riding holiday with a couple of my mates. We've ridden down the west coast of France, along the top of Spain and now stopped half way down the Portuguese coast, in the resort of Figueira Da Foz. There doesn't seem to be anyone here in Portugal, from the towns to the motorways. It's like one ...

NCR's titanium-framed Ducati

Michael Neeves, 02 July 2013 08:00

NCR has been tuning Ducatis since the late 60s. During the 90s and early 2000s, you’ll probably remember the black NCR Ducatis competing in World Superbike, ridden by the likes of Borja, Bontempi, Xaus, Bostrom, Laconi and Chilli. In 2001 NCR wound down its racing activities to concentrate on building their own Ducati-engined specials and producing mouth-watering aftermarket Ducati spares. ...

Staff Blog: Hyperstrada at Snetterton and beyond

Michael Neeves, 20 June 2013 16:05

I took my Hyperstrada for a blast around the Snetterton 300 circuit on Monday – my second trackday of the year on the Ducati. I was there helping fellow MCN-er, Andy Davidson, who was doing his first ever trackday on his long term Kawasaki Z800. It’s easy to take trackdays for granted when you do a lot of them, but ...

Staff Blog: Finding time for the Hyperstrada

Michael Neeves, 06 June 2013 12:02

I’ve never known it to be so busy in MCN Road Test land, so I find myself away travelling lots. It means that sometimes I’m riding my Hyperstrada every day and occasionally weeks will go by where it sits in my garage, untouched. But now things are slowing down a touch. Lots of the new bike tests are fizzling out ...

Staff Blog: Life with the Hyperstrada so far

Michael Neeves, 30 May 2013 10:42

On paper, the new Ducati Hyperstrada is right up my street. It promises supermoto fun and the ability to cover long distances. I'm running one for the 2013 summer season and so far it hasn't disappointed. Here's my first 'getting to know you' video review.BLOG13 | HYPER13

Staff Blog: Roll on summer

Michael Neeves, 07 May 2013 09:40

If someone told me a few years ago, I’d want a bike with panniers and a centre stand, I’d have thought they were mad. But here I am, about to spend the summer with the 2013 Ducati Hyperstrada – a bike with panniers, a centre stand and even 12v power sockets, for god’s sake. Of course, the Hyperstrada is about ...
