1994: Cruiser war

‘The Pan is such an in­te­grated, well thought out mo­tor­cy­cle that it’s hard to sin­gle out any area for crit­i­cism’ The MCN test, July 13 1994

Look­ing back at July 1994 is a fright­en­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. That’s not long ago, right? Well it cer­tainly feels like it when you look back at the bikes and rac­ers in the news.

MZ had just re­leased the Sko­r­pion – a ground (and fill­ing)-break­ing sin­gle cylin­der sports­bike, In­dian were back - shortly be­fore go­ing away again – Suzuki had just switched from the Heron days to be­ing a Ja­panese sub­sidiary, and Carl Fog­a­rty was about to have a wild­card ride at the Bri­tish GP aboard a Ca­giva C594 – un­til it all went hor­ri­bly wrong and he pulled out to pro­tect his su­per­bike ti­tle hopes – which turned out rather bet­ter.

Back on the road, new test plans were un­der fire, so maybe not much has changed af­ter all.
