New ZX-10R edges out S1000RR
Kawasaki claims the new ZX-10R has more power, less weight and more effective electronic rider aids than the BMW S1000RR - and after a day on track MCN reckons it will be faster than the BMW.

 

 

 

KTM RC8R first ride
While other sports bike manufacturers are rushing to develop electronic rider aids, KTM believes its new 175bhp RC8R doesn't need them. 

 




Triumph Speed Triple gets mixed reaction
Triumph owners got their first chance to judge the new Speed Triple 1050 when it made its first UK appearance in dealers last week.

 

 

 


£1500 supersport challenge
Each of MCN's road testers must buy and prepare an old supersport bike for £1500. The three bikes will then be tested against a 2010 Kawasaki ZX-6R. The fastest one wins.
