July 2017

Welcome...

This month in the mag we've got a first test of Ducati's 2017 Superleggera and Rutter test three of the most exciting supernakeds. We take a look at how mass-produced carbon frames will give birth to a new generation of ultra-light sportsbikes. Busas are unique and hilarious - this month Johnny took it to a Welsh beach, and came back with a land speed record.

PB was deeply saddened by the untimely passing of Nicky Hayden and former PB tester, Brendan ‘the Baron’ Keirle. There are tributes to both in this issue and there’s a Hayden poster in the middle of the mag, too.

Thanks for reading,
