Sportbike Reviews

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.

2010 VFR1200F with DCT Review

We wrote about the Honda VFR1200F with Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) when it was announced last summer, then after it was ridden by American journalists in Japan last fall. At long last it’s coming to the U.S.

2010 Bennche Megelli 250R Review

The introduction of the 2010 Bennche Megelli 250R to the U.S. motorcycle market is a move at least as bold as its provocative, red-hot looks.

2010 Kawasaki Versys Review

The 2010 Kawasaki Versys is an updated rendition of an already capable bike – one that is overwhelmingly purchased by experienced motorcyclists – but which could hit the hot buttons for many more younger riders, if only they knew what they were missing.

2010 Moto Morini Corsaro Veloce 1200 Review

If John Wayne was still alive he’d be riding a Corsaro Veloce - it’s a real man’s bike. Slightly crude and under developed due to Moto Morini’s financial troubles, but still a lovely motorcycle with dollops of character.

2010 Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 vs. Ducati Hypermotard 796

Supermoto began with converted motocross bikes. Recently, however, manufacturers have issued supermoto hybrids of sorts: streetbikes with a gritty supermotard attitude. Aprilia's Dorsoduro 750 and Ducati's Hypermotard 796 are two such examples.

2010 Kawasaki Ninja 650R Review

The versatile and affordable Ninja 650R has impressed us since it joined Kawasaki’s sport line-up in 2006. The original 650R’s soft lines got an edgier restyling, plus notable upgrades to increase rider comfort.

2010 MV Agusta F4 1000 Review

MV Agusta’s F4 1000 is probably the most elitist motorcycle you can imagine, but don’t hold that against it. It is that way because the people behind it always wanted the F4 to be the best, the fastest and the most desirable object in motorcycling.

2010 BMW K1300S vs Honda VFR1200F Shootout

Honda’s new VFR1200F and BMW’s new-for-’09 K1300S occupy a similar in-between niche. On one end are liter-sized sportbikes bred on the racetrack, while the other end is occupied by big sport-tourers. The K13 and VFR stand apart in their tween-ness.

2010 Vyrus 987 Review

The new Vyrus 987 flies high even in the rarefied air of ultra sportbikes. It marries a 185-horse Ducati 1198R engine with a hub-center-steered Bimota chassis unlike anything on the market. Our Euro correspondent takes a spin on this exotic among exotics!

2010 Kawasaki ZX-10R Review

Kawasaki’s ZX-10R has always been one of the most lively and animalistic literbikes of the bunch. These qualities define the big Ninja, for both good and bad.

2010 Ducati Multistrada Review

The versatile new Multistrada is set to open the Ducati experience to a wide swath of conquest consumers. The Multistrada 1200 isn’t just good, it’s good enough to be a contender for bike of the year.

2010 Honda CBR1000RR C-ABS Review

Honda’s CBR1000RR is one of two liter bikes from the Big Four to receive only minor updates for ‘10. Despite no big news, riding around on the C-ABS-equipped machine reinforced why we like the CBR so much in the first place.
