This is a massive issue of Rapid Bikes with road tests of the new 2015 Yamaha YZF-R1 and Ducati 1299 Panigale and a track test of the Aprilia RSV4 RF. There’s a Quick Test on BMW F 800 R, a full test on the wicked new Yamaha YZF-R3 LAMS offering and we got our hands on the Norton Commando Café Racer. In Tweaked there’s a Confederate X312 Hellcat plus an amazing Drysdale V8, Ducati Desmosedici RR and a stunning Vida Loca Super Motard.
This issue’s Tech Tips covers replacing your bike’s wheel bearings and in Workshop there’s Part 2 of our Filling & Paint feature, plus Tech Time, with reader questions answered. We’ve also got a feature on the famous Vyrus Factory and of course all the regulars such as Jeff’s Fireblade, Project Hayabusa ‘The Short Bus’ with Mick Withers and Kris’s Triumph Daytona 675R. We’ve also ET for your drag racing fix and all the regular columns with Ned Shaw, Mark Stenberg and Dave Manning.
In the Knee Down track section you’ll find columns by Steve Brouggy, Andrew Pitt, Don Cox and Heather Watson with the WSBK wrap. Plus Jeff competes in the Ninja Cup FOB category and there’s an Education feature on the California Superbike School Level 1.
