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.

First Impression: 1997 Triumph T595 Daytona

Honda's king of the middle-weights, the CBR600F3, returns for 1996 with nothing more than new clothes and a new price tag.

Triumph Daytona 900

The three-cylinder Daytona (there's also a 1200cc four-cylinder version) is touted as the sportbike of the Triumph range.

Yamaha TRX 850

Lately, it seems all motorcycle journalists having been driving themselves crazy trying to decide if Honda or Suzuki have finally toppled Ducati's 916 from it's place as Ultimate Sport-Twin Superbike, and little attention is paid to the other Japanese...

The Grand Prix Fantasy

Twenty years ago, the legendary Giacomo Agostini and his then-unconventional "gill-valved," water-cooled Yamaha YZR500 two-stroke dethroned the mighty MV-Agusta Gran Prix juggernaut, ending MV's unprecedented 17-year win streak.
