The 2008 FireBlade comes with attitude from its rev-happy engine, race-like steering (quick, responsive), stability and supremely balance chassis. This Blade will cut it, power delivery is flawlessly smooth, and the ride quality from the fully adjustable suspension is ideal for road riding.
The Kawasaki ZZR1400 is not only the fastest, most powerful motorcycle you could buy in 2006, but happens to be an extremely capable all-round machine too. Limited to 186mph (300kmh) the Kawasaki ZZR1400 will do it with a gear to spare. Capable of commuting, two up sporty touring, track days, drag racing, posing – almost anything is possible on the big Kawasaki ZZR1400 - just don’t try taking it dirt riding.
Kawasaki raised the bar again when releasing the 2013 ZX6R with KTRC (traction control) as standard the set up created really makes for a sharp super sports that has to be ridden to appreciat the agility this bike has.
Yamaha’s MT-09 middleweight roadster should be spectacular – a worthy rival to Triumph’s mighty Street Triple. Experienced riders will love the power from its 115bhp, 850cc three-cylinder engine, its ability to do easy stunts and the huge reserves of ground clearance available. Newer riders will enjoy the motor’s flexibility, light weight and low seat. It’s as happy doing the daily grind as it is whisking you off on holiday and best of is great value for money. The MT-09 could be the king of the class.
The Triumph Daytona 675 has put Hinckley firm back on the shortlist of many UK sports motorcycle riders, who previously rated the 600 and 650 Daytona models as being OK, but no real alternative to a Japanese four cylinder 600cc sportbikes. Silky, compact handling, allied to kick-ass engine power and a howling exhaust note, make the Triumph Daytona 675 a real winner on the road, or track.
The ‘R’ version comes with fully-adjustable suspension and fiercer radial four-pot Nissin front brakes, making it the perfect bike to tempt UK riders away from their sportsbikes. If you’re looking for a high-spec middleweight that blows the competition away, the Triumph Street Triple R is in a class of one.
Powerful and track focused the R model has 15bhp more than the S model and is 2kg lighter. It has improved handling due to uprated Ohlins suspension and improved ground clearance with a revised foot-peg position. For a large naked bike it’s hugely impressive. The Ducati Monster 1200 R also gets new bigger brakes, a new sub-frame which holds the slimmer tail unit, new colour dash and the Öhlins steering damper. Power is up 10% over the S model Ducati quote 160bhp with 97ftlb of torque. Power and drive is impressive. The 1198 engine has proven reliable over the years, and depsite the increased performance, reliability shouldn’t be a problem. The Monster R comes with the same rider modes and safety pack as the S model. The stunning TFT display completes the bike. Ducati have included their unique safety pack, which is a bucket full of riders aids which includes eight-way traction control, three riding modes and the Bosch 9MP cornering ABS braking system. It also gets 1299 Panigale-style wheels with the same huge 200 section Pirelli Supercorsa SP tyre on the rear; the new Monster R can certainly head straight to the race track.
Compared to the SRAD this example is Slimmed down, firmed up and with power and torque figures to raise front wheels as well as eyebrows, for a bike with a lineage as race-bred and focused as the Suzuki GSX-R750, it’s no small irony that the original superbike is something of a compromise. It has all the handling of the 600 and most of the usable power of the 1000. The result is a motorcycle that’s near perfect on road or track. The Suzuki GSX-R750’s handling is superb, the chassis flatters the novice and rewards the expert and shock, horror – it’s actually comfy.
