2021 sees Yamaha with major updates to the MT-07, and around the same time Triumph re-introduce the famous Trident moniker on a 660 triple sportbike aimed squarely at the same audience. Editors Don Williams, Nic De Sena, and Kelly Callan, discuss the two machines with Arthur Coldwells. Enjoy!
This week, Senior Editor Nic de Sena rides the all new Ducati Monster. Big changes have been made by Ducati--has the company ruined the considerable heritage of the iconic Monster--or are the changes worth it? In the second part of the show, we chat with Nick Ienatsch, Founder and Head Instructor at the Yamaha Champions Riding School. He says: "We aim to change your riding life by introducing you to Champions Habits: The techniques, approaches, skills, and the mindsets of the best riders in the world. These Champions Habits are the foundation of safety and consistency to whatever speed you ride, in any venue on any bike. Street riders, this is just as much for you as track riders. The best way to make safe riders is to make good riders.“ We hope you enjoy this episode!
