  • This is Yamaha S10000R.

    YAMAHA ALWAYS SAID there would be larger MTmodels, and that the crossplane-crank inline-four engine fromthe YZF-R1 could be used. Given theMT-07’s twin andMT-09’s triple are ‘crossplane concept’ and called the CP2 andCP3, it would kindamake sense to have an actual crossplanemotor in the range. So here’s the newMT-10. This isn’t just the engine froman R1. Unlike its purposebuilt siblings, and despite promising to be ‘enjoyed on any road, any time and at any speed’, theMT-10 is heavily based on themachine that donates its gravelly, snarling engine. Frame, forks, shock and brakes are nicked fromthe sportsbike (or, to be precise, the slightly lower-spec R1-S that they get in the USA). This is Yamaha’s S1000R. Obviously there are changes. The 998cc engine has different pistons, crank, intake, exhaust and injection for bottom-end balls and midrange might, and revised gearing. Like other MTs there are three ridingmodes, but the MT-10 also has cruise control and threelevel traction. A quickshifter will be optional. The frame has ‘optimised strength/rigidity balance’, with a steel subframe andmodified settings for the suspension, and a stubby 1400mmwheelbase - just 20mm longer than the trim newMT-03. Radial calipers have ABS, and the Bridgestone tyres are specially developed for the bike. You’ll get 17 litres in the tank and there’s a 12v power socket. Colours? Blue, black, or the ‘Night Fluro’ grey with high-vis wheels that’s available across theMT range. Yamaha have trodden this path before. The now-defunct FZ1was based on an R1, but its attitude and revvy delivery made it hard work against rival nakeds of the day. Times change however, and now we’re in the age of the supernaked theMT could be just the job. Yamaha haven’t decided howmuch power or weight to claim, or howmuch it’ll cost. But they do assure us that the new MT-10 will be here in May.
  • Monster 1200R.

    The most powerful Monster yet, we rode this one in our November 2015 issue. According to our international bike guru Roland, the 1200R is the fastest, most aggressive and entertaining Monster yet.
  • VAUXHALL.

    When the Astra Sports Tourer was first announced, Vauxhall boasted efficiency of 99g/km for the 1.0i Turbo ecoFLEX editions and an even lower 96g/km for the Easytronic automated manual versions. But with homologation now complete, those figures have crept up by 1g/km with the official figures declared as 100 and 97g/km, respectively. The latter version sees a change in official fuel economy figures that are quoted, too, with 67.3mpg listed, as opposed to 68.9mpg before. These changes mean that for company car users, the manual gearbox version at 100g/km increases by one benefit-in-kind band to 18 per cent, compared to 17 per cent previously, while Easytronic versions stay the same as before. The prices are unchanged, too, with the Astra Sports Tourer Design 1.0i Turbo ecoFLEX priced at Ј17,285, rising to Ј17,985 for the better equipped Tech Line version. The load-lugging Astra Sports Tourer is set to arrive in UK showrooms in February.
