Why Trust Us?

Motorcycle News was first published as a newspaper in 1955, and since then has become the world authority on all things motorbike – both in print and online – from riding the latest new metal to in-depth news investigations on the issues that really matter, right through to helping riders find their next bike and up-to-the-minute sports news and insight.

MCN is created by a team of highly passionate, qualified and experienced journalists with over 400 years of collective writing experience and many, many more years of riding new and old bikes on-road, off-road, and all over the world.

MCN Products aims to bring you the very best product recommendations for clothing, maintenance and accessories, curated by our team of experts.

How do you choose which products are best?

At Bauer Media UK, we are home to some of the biggest media brands, including Parkers, CAR Magazine, Motorcycle News, Empire, Heat, Closer and Mother&Baby, plus Grazia, Country Walking Magazine, Garden Answers, Yours, and many more. We also have more than 50 radio stations including Absolute Radio, Magic FM, Kiss FM and Jazz FM. Across magazines, online, and radio we reach more than 25 million consumers.

Our experts know our audiences and what they want to buy; our journalists pride themselves on the highest standards and best practices, and we are always looking for what is best for you – what’s the most practical, with the most features, not necessarily what’s the most fashionable or the most expensive.

Our team spends hours investigating and researching what products you should spend your hard-earned cash on, based on analysis and customer reviews. Everything we recommend we would buy ourselves or would recommend to our friends, family and colleagues. We know what matters to you, because it matters to us.

Do you make affiliate commission?

We work with a variety of affiliate partnerships and we may receive a commission for purchases made through our links. As an Amazon Associate, we earn from qualifying purchases.

How does this impact your editorial work?

Our affiliate partnerships do not impact on the product choices we make, or the reviews we write. There is no pressure on our editorial team to choose particular products or brands; we won’t recommend a product that we don’t believe in. The products will speak for themselves when you invest in them.
