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.

1998 Kawasaki ZX-6R

Kawasaki recently invited the press to Spain for the introduction of their all-new ZX-6R, and guess who came to dinner?

1998 Honda VFR800FI Interceptor

The future is becoming clearer. Through a smokey haze of exhaust fumes, road grime, safety flares and emergency vehicle flashers, a sportbike planet of ridiculous power-to-weight ratios and sheer-speed widowmakers is seen.

1998 Honda CBR 900 RR

BMW K1100RS And K1200RS Go Toe to Toe

We approached the launch of the K1200RS with some trepidation, thinking BMW was introducing a bigger-bore, still-buzzy sportbike to replace their aging sport-tourer, the K1100RS. We were wrong on all counts.

Top 600s, 1997

But which 600 is best, and more specifically, which is best for you? Read on, and join us for a thorough thrashing of the world's best 600cc sportbikes.

Kawasaki Ninja 250R

Billy Bartels pretending that he is a 250 GP contender. The Ninja likes to do this. Not bad, for a little bike.

First Impression: 1997 Triumph T595 Daytona

Triumph's T595 is an extraordinary motorcycle. If you consider the fact it's built by a company that didn't exist 15 years ago, that 10 years ago had no production facilities and five years ago produced less than 5000 bikes
