MCN rides the Britten V1000

Adam Child, 24 January 2013 07:30

‘Outstanding’, ‘amazing’, and ‘work of art’ are all labels liberally applied to the exotic race bikes built by John Britten, but in reality the Britten deserves a unique accolade to celebrate its existence. In many peoples’ minds it’s simply the greatest bike ever made. For me it transcends everything, it’s a dream bike, it was the poster bike I had ...

Video: Smart money superbikes

MCN, 20 June 2012 15:34

The 1000cc sports bike class has ripped in two and there are now two distinct camps. In the ‘extreme’ corner there’s the super-powerful, electronically-enhanced superbikes, like the Aprilia RSV4, BMW S1000RR, Ducati Panigale and Kawasaki ZX-10R. Over in the other is the new Fireblade, GSX-R1000 and R1. These much-loved Japanese machines are the old guard and have all been worthy ...

MCN, 08 June 2012 17:00

BMW is already well ahead in the development of a naked version of its class-leading S1000RR superbike as these spy shots taken at a BMW test facility reveal.

Video: Simon Crafar powerslides the new Suzuki GSX-R1000

MCN, 27 April 2012 09:23

The new Suzuki GSX-R1000 is one of only two current superbikes (the other the Honda Fireblade) that doesn't have traction control. For most of us mere mortals, that means having to be a little more careful on the throttle than on an electronics-laiden Aprilia RSV4, or any of the other 1000cc superbikes. For 500GP winner Simon Crafar it means he ...

2012 Aprilia Dorsoduro ridden

Adam Child, 19 March 2012 15:49

Aprilia’s revised exotic Dorsoduro 1200 has lost weight, gained some Italian ponies and now has a three-way traction control as standard. If you thought the Supermoto scene was drying up you’d be wrong. Aprilia are seven times world supermoto champions, and the Dorsoduro has been a success story since its launch in 750 format back in 2008. It’s Aprilia’s third best-selling ...

10 things bike firms could learn from their own ads

Guy Procter, 07 November 2011 13:42

Look at bike ads from decades past and you come away thinking some manufacturers today aren’t fighting hard enough for the customers they could have. What happened to having the balls to compare yourselves to your competitors? When did pointing out there are compelling reasons to ride other than fulfilling a trackday fantasy become a dumb idea?
