It’s that time of the year again! Yes, its time to assemble the best superbikes that were launched in 2019 and put them through a thorough test that not only deals with the dyno figures but track and road too. This year, we have with us the all-new BMW S 1000 RR M Sport with ‘normal’ headlights, joining the mental Ducati Panigale V4 S. Of course, the longstanding champion from Aprilia – the RSV4 has received subtle updates in the form of 1100 Factory variant which will go up against the Japanese megabikes including the Yamaha R1 M, Honda Fireblade SP, Suzuki Gixer, Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10 RR and ZX-6R. Which one will come out on top?
Find out in the Ultimate Superbike Test. But there’s a lot more than just superbikes; we also have compared the mighty classics starting with the oldest - the Royal Enfield Classic 350 along with the recently launched Benelli Imperiale 400 and of course, the Jawa too. The Benelli has no legacy to boast of and feels like a mishmash of Triumph’s Bonneville range and Royal Enfield’s Classic/Bullet. But there’s more to a classic bike than just legacy, right?
Speaking of legacy, another indigenous electric bike maker based out of Bengaluru has made its debut. But unlike the other Chinese two-wheelers that are on sale in the market today, the Ultraviolette F77 is extremely well-made. The focus here is on performance and that clearly shows in terms of the way it looks and how it behaves on a racetrack even. Electric bike on a racetrack? Sounds promising, right? So does the December issue. Check out what’s inside:
