Hey, hey it’s a brand new Monkey! | MCN

  • By cannonball

It’s an iconic image of the 1970s that was initially developed as a child’s plaything before gaining a cult status all of its own – and now it’s back. Yep, alongside the re-imagined Beetle, Mini and countless retro bikes from the Triumph Bonnie to the Ducati Scrambler now sits a brand new Honda Monkey bike!

Redesigned for 2018 with a bit of a modern tweak yet still powered by an air-cooled engine, Honda has made good on its ‘Monkey concept’ that was being displayed at various bike shows last year. And what a top job they have done!

MotoGP: Track drama ahead in Austin? 

  • By cannonball

This weekend’s American Grand Prix could throw a spanner into the works for race organisers as they remain on knife edge to see what sort of situation greets them at the Circuit of the Americas in Texas.

Riders complained twelve months ago about the bumpy surface, with Dani Pedrosa likening the surface to a Supercross race and saying he wasn’t prepared to ride at the track again unless something was done about them. Built on an almost unique type of soil local to the area and known as black gumbo, the track has subsided considerably since opening in 2012, leaving it in a difficult to ride condition last year.

The $1-million bike… 

  • By cannonball

Yes, this bike has a retail price of a staggering $1-million, which if you convert it to pounds at the current exchange rate is an equally distressing £698,270. What makes it so special? It’s the final work of Massimo Tamburini, the legendary bike designer who passed away in 2013 and was the man responsible for not only founding Bimota, but also designing the Ducati 916 and MV Agusta F4.

Roads: McGuinness reveals injury set-back 

  • By cannonball

Isle of Man TT legend John McGuinness has revealed that he has had a set-back in his recovery from the broken leg he sustained in an accident at last year’s North West 200.

The 23-time TT winner broke his right tibia and fibular when he was thrown from his Honda Fireblade following at the fast Primrose Hill turn on the North West 200 course following a problem with the machine’s ECU.

First Ride Of Yamaha’s Updated Tracer 900 and Tracer 900GT Incoming…

  • By cannonball

MCN will be riding Yamaha’s new Tracer 900 and Tracer 900GT models tomorrow in Spain. And, rather predictably for this year, it’s probably going to be raining…

Both Tracer models feature an updated chassis with a longer swingarm and sharper steering geometry to compensate for the increased wheelbase. But that’s not all, Yamaha have listened to owners’ comments and given both Tracers a bigger seat for added comfort, improved the riding position through narrower bars and added even larger pillion grab handles for that special someone in your life. And not only that, the screen promises to be far less fiddly to adjust than before! Yamaha even claim it’s now a one-hand affair…
