Sportbikes offer the most advanced motorcycle design technology available and are designed for optimum speed, acceleration, braking and maneuverability. They have a more aerodynamic design than other classes of bikes and are a thrill to ride for experienced motorcyclists, especially in high-performance situations such as a trackday down at your local racetrack. However, comfort and amenities usually suffer at an inverse proportion to how quick they are around a racetrack.
As tight as our track test results were, the street shootout was just as close.
But how quick can Victory’s podium-finishing Isle of Man TT e-bike get down a quarter-mile dragstrip?
The Aprilia RSV4 RF, BMW S1000RR, Ducati 1299 Panigale S, Honda CBR1000RR SP, Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R and Yamaha YZF-R1 battle for top superbike.
She looks the same, but the 2015 S1000RR went to the computer lab, and followed it up with a trip to the gym.
Honda’s flagship superbike provides a riding experience that can best be described as pure.
What can I add to what’s already been said about the new “MotoGP bike for the street” Honda RC213V-S?
In preparation of our upcoming 2015 Superbike Shootout we came across this similar gem posted a decade ago. From then to now we find similarities
The idea of a Kawasaki sportbike that costs $25,000 might seem incongruous.
The Honda CBR300R, Kawasaki Ninja 300 ABS, KTM RC390 and Yamaha YZF-R3 face off
Unique is an adjective often misused, but the supercharged H2 certainly qualifies.
Aprilia’s superbike has been the closest a mass-production streetbike has replicated a MotoGP bike.
The R3 is a bike gentle enough for a new rider, yet entertaining enough for an experienced rider.
Yamaha might be late to the beginner bike market, but it was worth the wait.
In case it wasn’t clear from my 2015 Yamaha YZF-R1 and R1M
