Performance Bike June 2015 issue

Welcome to the June issue of Performance Bikes. In this issue we’re getting very excited about the start of the road racing season. Preparations for the North West 200 and the Isle of Man TT are already well underway and we’ve been in the thick of it. We’ve been behind the scenes as the bikes were prepared and fettled and asked the experts who they think will prevail. PB columnist and office hero John McGuinness will be looking to add to his tally of 21 wins, while PB road tester Michael Rutter will be looking to build on his top five superbike finish and 130.627mph lap from last year. It’s one of the reasons he’s the fastest regular road tester on any magazine in the world. Needless to say, when we asked Michael’s opinion on the latest, hot-poop superbikes, it resulted in some massive speed. Each bike posted record laptimes at our Mallory Park test track and each bike was captivating on the road, too. The orgy of huge power and thick black lines begins on page 39...
