MCN’s Weekly Wind-on: top stories this week
Welcome to your second Weekly Wind-on in April! This week on MCN we’ve had some controversial stories – with the most talked about the snubbing of the Blood Bikers in favour of a private contractor. Transport for London also launched the ULEZ area on Monday.
Furthermore, things are afoot at Norton, as we’ve had news of a new partnership between the Donington Hall-based firm and watch company Breitling, plus the factory is being extended in order to build the new lower-cost Altas bikes. Guy Willison is set to forge his own path with a new motorcycle company too.
In electric bikes, Dan had a prototype ride on the new Zero SR/F and Honda finally showed their hand by releasing a twist-and-go electric crosser concept.
We’ve also been thinking about new riders, and published MCN’s best A2 licence-friendly motorbikes, while there’s also advice on how to avoid scammers when selling a bike online.
Bott Power have launched a kit to turn your Buell into an XR1 White Carbon, while MCN star and Chief Road Tester Michael Neeves gets to grips with BMW’s R1250R in our full review.
Of course, there’s a decent spread of racing happening over the weekend too. MotoGP is in Austin, Texas, while the WSB circus visits Holland.
We can’t wait to see what next week has in store…
