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.

Overlooked and Underrated

Newer is not always better. In many ways, a tried-and-true two- or three-year-old design is often a better option than the latest cutting-edge machine.

Buell Blast

The Harley-Davidson Motor Co. realizes that today's younger generation is into the more "extreme sports" and will search for "challenging, exhilarating sports to test their limits and find the ultimate rush," more so than previous generations.

1999 Triumph Sprint ST

Amsterdam, November 16, 1999 -- "Know what that is?" said the Triumph guy as we circled the stationary Sprint. "None of the journos notice it when they take the Sprint,"

1999 Buell Lightning X1

There will always be things we are forced to accept, without explanation.

1999 Yamaha YZF-R7 OW-O2

The Yamaha YZF-R7 OW-O2 has one purpose in life: To win races. You may have seen it displayed in various shows with lights and road gear but these have only been added in order to homologate the bike to meet F.I.M. regulations.

Ducati Supersport 750

Ducati's are different -- just look at them. It is not just their aggressive appearance either. There are no high-tech materials to gawk at; only retro chrome-moly steel, some aluminum and other simple alloys.

1999 Buell Motorcycles

Buell blew it. The first day of the 1999 Harley-Davidson/Buell press introduction took place at the Harley-Davidson Café in Las Vegas, Nevada.

First Ride: 1999 Honda CBR600F4

After months of waiting and a flurry of rumors and half-truths, Honda has finally introduced the latest version of the best-selling sport bike in the English-speaking world -- the CBR600F4.

First Ride: 1999 Yamaha YZF-R6

Never mind the bollocks, we'll get right to the point: The Yamaha YZF-R6 kicks ass. It is one of the most feral, thrilling, heart-pounding motorcycles we've ever ridden.
