MCN, 02 November 2011 16:23

This Monster-powered, featherweight racer is the M4 One Shot, the latest beauty from Bologna-based bike builders NCR. Using the same basic geometry and concept as the firm's 1000 Millona race bike, and borrowing heavily from the Ducati Monster 1100 Evo - itself a meagre 169kg - the stripped down, titanium and carbon-fibre constructed M4 One Shot tips the scales at ...

Guy Procter, 08 June 2011 10:43

Great behind-the-scenes video for some of the promos for KTM’s new 125 Duke. Has a bike firm ever made an eighth-litre bike look so damn good?
