250cc special: Make room for a small one

Anonymous, 18 July 2014 12:23

There’s always been something special about quarter-litre sports bikes. A generation of learners grew up riding machines like Yamaha’s RD250LC, while wannabe GP riders could live-out their 250GP fantasies on bikes like Honda’s amazing grey import NSR250SP. And more recently those on the now superseded 33bhp licence restriction were set free on bikes like the CBR250R and Ninja 250. So ...

Video: Kawasaki Z1000 first ride

MCN, 28 November 2013 07:30

The Z1000 has been the most serious Japanese 'super naked' since 2003, and Kawasaki have determinedly reinvented it ever since. For 2014, it's re-styled and eschews electronics in favour of refinement, quality and value. It's a bold move and could be a clever one. brightcove.createExperiences();

Staff Blog: Not so naked now

Andy Davidson, 10 June 2013 17:02

I have finally fitted a screen from German firm MRA. The aftermarket plastic is not specifically designed for the Z800 but is a racing screen built for newer, aggressively-styled naked bikes. I fitted the screen in about 15 minutes with an Allen key and a screwdriver in the office car park. Everything smoothly slotted into place and the shield looks ...

Video: Riding Europe's finest retro bikes

Michael Neeves, 11 January 2012 14:41

German firm LSL are becoming famous for creating achingly-cool retro custom bikes, but for owner Jochen Schmitz-Linkweiler they’re merely a hobby – his real business is manufacturing accessories. When MCN visited LSL, we expected to find a small custom shop, but instead were welcomed into a 900 square meter, solar-powered factory turning out everything from handlebars to rearsets. So how ...

Techy Kawasaki Versys 1000 is dark horse of class

Despite its derivative styling and the impression of parts sourced from other bikes, Kawasaki’s new entrant into the adventure bike class is much more than a Z1000 in new clothes, MCN can now reveal. In fact, with switchable traction control, ABS, switchable power modes, easily adjustable screen and suspension and impressive tank and luggage capacity, the new Versys 1000 is ...
