Performance Bikes Magazine

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


Welcome to the March issue of Performance Bikes magazine. In this issue we’re lucky enough to sample two of the most powerful, most advanced superbikes the world has ever seen.Firstly, our intrepid road tester John McAvoy took the S1000RR for the ride of a lifetime – a 2000-mile round trip to the South of France through rain, sleet and snow. But the reward was some sun, some amazing roads and the chance to test the bike somewhere near its outrageous potential.  Unsurprisingly, big Johnny was blown away by the sheer performance of the 196bhp, super-computer-powered Beemer. Read his revealing, honest and sometimes scary story in the mag.

As I write this, I’m just about to head out on the launch of the new Panigale 1299.We held the magazine at the printers to squeeze it in. With a claimed 203bhp and more torque than a supercharged Kawasaki H2 it promises to be wild ride.The Italians claim that the bike is easier to exploit, too, but we’ll see. Get your copy today to see how we got on...


Enjoy the issue!

Can new electronics, a big-bore engine and revised chassis make riding Ducati’s 1299 Panigale a cossetting experience?


Suzuki TL1000R


“People think it’s full of factory YZF parts” John Dieterman’s YZF750R rides like a ’90s BSB bike. However, its foundation lies not in expensive factory components but good old-fashioned hard graft.
