Staff Blog: Today is a good day…

Michael Guy, 26 April 2013 12:06

The last couple of months haven’t been easy. I’ve seen my colleagues at MCN come bouncing into the office having received their long term test bikes for the year. I however have been forced to do my commute up the A1 in a people carrier, which as the weather has improved has become increasingly soul destroying. But, today that all ...

KTM 690 Duke Track first ride

MCN, 30 March 2012 13:57

Hook sixth gear, crouch down as small as possible and focus on the small strip of white paint at the side of the track. Wait, wait, wait… Sit up, brake, down three gears, let clutch out, as possible while looking for the next braking marker. Behind the dark visor I’ve got a grin the size of a half moon across ...

Staff bikes: KTM 990 SMT ABS - Retuned to perfection

Trevor Franklin, 05 October 2011 16:49

Although the KTM 990 SM-T looks the same black and white bike I'd left at BSD Performance for a dyno run and fuelling check, the bike I got back now runs like a completely different machine. The KTM's low-rpm throttle snatch around town is now nothing more than a memory. Throttle response in first and second gearis smoother with the ...

Staff bikes: KTM Duke 125 - Duke to the Alps

Dan Aspel, 19 August 2011 15:22

This July I rode from Oundle (Cambridgeshire), to Interlaken (Switzerland) and back on my 125 Duke. The 2,000 mile, six-day route took me across country lanes, motorways, city streets, alpine passes and grassy fields, which the tiny KTM managed with aplomb. This – of course – is nothing new. Plenty of low-capacity bikes head off on high mileage odysseys every ...

Video: KTM Adventure 990 7000 mile report

Michael Guy, 21 March 2011 16:50

When I first got my KTM Adventure 990 I was on a mission to prove it was a bike that really could do anything. Now it's 12 months on and I think I've been proved right - well almost. Over the last 7000 miles I've done all the usual motorway, A-road and B-road miles, plus it's been to the Nurburgring ...
