Were the Police going to use a Stinger to stop a motorbike?

Posted: August 31, 2016 at 9:25 AM   /   Blogs, Slider Home

The Oakdene Cafe in Kent is a popular destination for bikers. Mid week in the summer, a couple of hundred bikes is normal. Obviously where there are bikes and bikers, there are Police. We’ve covered the relationship between the cops and bikers plenty over the years and we understand the need to have them, as […]

What’s going on with AMG and MV Agusta?

Posted: March 16, 2016 at 5:30 PM   /   Blogs

It would appear the wheels could be about to fall off the beautiful union between AMG and MV Agusta. The partnership began back in 2014 when the high performance division of Mercedes Benz bought a 25% stake in MV Agusta. Both marques apparently pitch at the same kind of customer, discerning above average spenders to […]

GPR Thunder Slash dual silencer fit on 2015 Suzuki GSX-S1000 S

Posted: March 4, 2016 at 11:08 PM   /   Blogs, Product Reviews, Staff Bikes

  We’re fans of GPR pipes here at SB – they make a good-looking exhaust at a decent price, with a wide range of styling options and noise levels, plus they generally do okay on power as well. So we gave the firm’s Thunder Slash end can a runout on our long term Suzuki GSX-S1000 S, and […]

What’s in – a gearbox. The SuperBike tech guide

Posted: February 24, 2016 at 11:43 AM   /   Blogs

  We’ve written literally millions of words about motorbikes here at SuperBike over the years. Probably around 15 million in fact (about 30,000 words an issue, twelve or thirteen times a year, for nearly 40 years, plus internet, Twitter, Facebook.) Words about brakes, engines, paint schemes, attractive women, racers, helmets, radiators, underseat tool kits and […]

Posted: February 21, 2016 at 9:37 PM   /   Blogs, Product Reviews, Staff Bikes

  Winter’s almost over (isn’t it?) – and we’ve been trying out some proper bad-weather rubber on the mighty Suzuki GSX-S1000 F. Michelin’s Pilot Road range has been one of the go-to choices for all-round riders for years now, particularly the ‘3’ version. The PR3 as it became known won many a rider’s heart for […]

GSX-S1000F at RAF Odiham airfield riding day

Posted: February 21, 2016 at 9:01 PM   /   Blogs, Staff Bikes

  I’ve been to a fair few trackdays over the years. Some of them have been pretty fancy affairs – from a near-empty Mugello riding the litre V-twins of the time, to a winter blast round a quiet Valencia when it was snowing back home. Sepang, Eastern Creek, Catalunya, Spa, Salzburgring: I’ve had a taste […]

SW Motech Blaze Pannier fit on GSX-S1000 F

Posted: January 4, 2016 at 10:45 AM   /   Blogs, Product Reviews, Staff Bikes, Uncategorized

Suzuki is very keen to stress that the new GSX-S1000 is very much a sporty naked bike. It’s nothing at all like a certain, SX-y,  Z-list bike from Competitor ‘K’, the nice PR man tells me, on a regular basis. Oh no. Nope. This is all well and good – it’s their bike after all. […]

Harley Davidson – Freedom ain’t selling.

Posted: October 31, 2015 at 11:27 AM   /   Blogs

You can’t put a price on freedom, the Americans like to say. That turns out to be a pity for that most American of bike brands, Harley-Davidson, which has announced poor financial results, looming job cuts and a marketing splurge to try to turn things around. Freedom, increasingly, looks like all it has to offer. […]

Suzuki GSX-S1000 Fuelling Graphs

Posted: October 27, 2015 at 9:29 PM   /   Blogs, Product Reviews, Staff Bikes

Emissions Scandal!   No, we’re not talking about VW cars belching out masses of nitrous oxides. Rather, the effect of Euro emissions regs on our long term GSX-S1000 F. We’ve been speaking to the good guys at Dynojet UK, about getting a Power Commander fitted to our bike. They’ve been working hard at developing a […]
