Performance Bikes Magazine

The December issue of Performance Bikes magazine is on sale now!

Welcome Performance Bikes magazine August 2014 issue is out nowto the new issue of Performance Bikes

Whilst I've been at home changing nappies (not mine, those of my new son), Simon Hargreaves has done a great job of babysitting my other child, PB.
And with all the 2015 metal being unveiled, he couldn’t have picked a better month to take the reins.
Simon has been traipsing this year's motorcycle shows and tells me that the uproar around Kawasaki’s 295bhp, supercharged H2R at the Cologne bike show is genuinely, excitingly, novel.
Quite right too. The H2R and H2, new BMW S1000RR (ridden, inside)... even sports-based tackle like BMW’s R1200RS and Suzuki’s GSX-S1000, all signify a commitment to, and confidence in, the sportsbike. Or, at least, the sporting rider, whatever the bike.
And that’s good because PB is about more than metal, it’s about the way we think, the way we ride and how we make a bike better. And that’s true whether it’s a £50 CZ125 or a £50,000 Kawasaki H2R.
Enjoy the issue. If you don't, email Simon, not me...

Matt Wildee, editor.
