Performance Bikes Magazine

Performance Bikes September issue - on sale now!


Welcome to the September issue of Performance Bikes magazine. This month we’ve wasted an awful lot of time on the internet working out which bikes we’re going to buy next. It’s all features editor Chris’s fault. His massive 16-page guide to bargain used sportsbikes has made us all think about our next bikes to such an extent that eBay is a constant office distraction. Today I decided I’m selling my R1 to buy a GSX-R750 Anniversary model, yesterday I was trading it in for a Ducati 999, tomorrow it’ll be something else...After years of inflated used prices, the increase in new bike sales means there are some real secondhand bargains about.

There’s plenty of other great stuff in this issue but my other personal favourite is contributor Jon Urry’s attempt to spanner for 1994 500GP world champion Kevin Schwantz as he raced his RGV500 at a meeting at Jerez. Jon’s mixture of wonder, amazement and sheer terror makes for great reading.

Enjoy the mag…
Matt Wildee, editor.
