Performance Bikes November issue - on sale now!


Welcome to the November issue of Performance Bikes. This month we’ve been celebrating the Kawasaki H2. Like many people, we didn’t know quite what to think about the high-tech supercharged behemoth. Then one-by-one the members of PB’s staff rode it. First off, big Johnny Mac was blown away by the power and acceleration at Qatar’s MotoGP track. Then cynical features editor Chris actually broke into a grin describing how it rides. He chucked me the keys and I spent a whole weekend ignoring my family and holding on for dear life. It’s what I hope any PB reader would do...

In this issue Chris and TT winner Milky Quayle rag the H2 in the Isle of Man, but there’s plenty of other great stuff too. Highlights include Si Hargreaves testing Guy Martin’s Tyco BMW TT racer, me slinging my leg over Ariel’s Ace Sport, Chris on the fastest-ever Ducati Monster, plus the return of Project TL1000R, with a sexy new Nova close-ratio gearbox.

Enjoy the mag…
Matt Wildee, editor.
