MCN Fleet

These are the 10 new-for-2020 bikes that will be joining this year’s MCN long-term test fleet. From retros to nakeds, superbikes to adventure machines, our team of highly experienced riders will be taking them on road, track and dirt – both at home and abroad – to cut through the marketing hype and find out just how well each one performs.

Along the way we’ll be testing tyres, kit and hard-parts, speaking to experts and owners, logging every tank of fuel and enjoying each and every mile in order to bring you the most thorough review possible. And if you own one of these models, please get in touch with us and we’ll compare notes.

To read each bike's full review, click on the images below. We will continue to update these pages as the year progresses. There will also be plenty of posts to social media and our #ride5000miles page.
