Way cool Honda VT750S special editions

Guy Procter, 29 September 2011 10:20

Honda has added 'championship white' paint, speed stripe and retro logo to its VT750S, significantly boosting the appeal of what was already perhaps the most effortlessly cool bike in its range. Harking back to Honda's 70s-America adopted heartland, the special editions come in red- or yellow/gold-detailed versions and come at a modest £250 premium over the base graphite black model, ...

Honda's new 700cc naked: how good is it going to be?

Guy Procter, 26 September 2011 14:03

Honda's kicking the ball into the biggest open goal it can find launching a 77mpg 700cc parallel twin super scooter at the height of fuel price paranoia. But it's not the version that will attract most interest among existing motorcyclists, for whom getting on any kind of step-thru is like volunteering for puberty reversal – either way foregoing both their ...

Honda launches new 77mpg 700cc parallel twin family with Integra super-scoot

Guy Procter, 26 September 2011 11:02

This is the 2012 Honda Integra – a 700cc parallel-twin-engined production version of the Mid Concept super scooter shown last year. Pitching into the huge-selling TMAX market with a second-generation dual-clutch gearbox and staggering claimed economy of 77mpg, it's almost certainly the most significant new bike Honda launch in 2012 - if not for you then certainly for the firm. ...

300mph, jet-assisted Hayabusa: meet the Bullet 1236

Guy Procter, 23 June 2011 09:12

So this is the theory: a bike could go a lot faster on the straights if it didn't have wheels dragging on the ground. The solution? A small jet engine and a few subtle wings contributing enough thrust and lift to hold the bike a metre off the ground at 300mph along long straights. Manoeuvrability is promised 'excellent' in the ...

MV Agusta F3 first ride: "Unusual but intuitive" says designer Adrian Morton

Guy Procter, 14 June 2011 14:19

The designer of MV's new F3 Adrian Morton has told MCN what the bike is like to ride. Naturally he thinks it's good, but given it's his first ever ride on the machine he styled, and he's a regular rider just like the rest of us rather than a superhero Stig-style tester, his observation the handling feels 'unusual but intuitive' is ...

Video: the Ducati Diavel that went racing

Guy Procter, 27 May 2011 16:47

It's got the power to out-drag a Ducati 1198 and it can out-brake one too. So why is nobody racing the highly-acclaimed new Ducati Diavel? Well, several reasons actually, but thinking it through would have taken all the fun out of finding out. You can find out more about exactly how this experiment ended up in next week's MCN.

New MV Agusta F4 RR - quicker yet slower

Guy Procter, 11 May 2011 12:57

MV Agusta has seized on a critical lull in new sportsbike activity to launch the most powerful production superbike ever, the F4 RR ‘Corsacorta’. MV hopes the £17,999, 201bhp, 998cc halo version of 2010’s relaunched F4 will take advantage of an increasingly jaded-looking field of competitors, and steal a march on Ducati’s new flagship superbike, due in November. But interestingly none ...
