Gallery: MCN250 retro bike showdown

Published: 09 August 2018

Updated: 09 August 2018


In this week’s MCN, we put the Kawasaki Z900RS up against its two key rivals in the retro category around the MCN250 test route. We love the retro charm of the Kawasaki Z900RS with its '70s Z1 looks masking truly modern rideability, but will it stand up to tough competition from Triumph and Ducati?


The Triumph Thruxton 1200R looks incredible and is poised and sharp in the bends. The Ducati Scrambler 1100 Sport has a great air-cooled soundtrack and scope for some light off-roading too.

We’ve put together a picture gallery of the day, but if you want to find out which bike faired the best, pick up a copy of MCN, available now in all good newsagents. Or subscribe to MCN to never miss an issue again.
