October 2018

In the October issue of PB, Rutter tests the Ducati Panigale V4 head-to-head with its rival the Yamaha YZF-R1M in a bid for top superbike honours, whilst a German tuning house makes the Panigale's raw power more accessible to everyone.

In our triple tug-off we find out how Triumph's Speed Triple S compares to the top spec RS and we get a sneak peak at a retro superbike R1 hybrid, rebuit with a 2018 engine.

We've got the most important stories from the world's most gruelling race, the Suzuka 8-hour and we introduce you to our new project bike, Rutter's 2018 Macau GP RCV.

The Mod Squad show you how to make your Monster 1100 better and we take a look around an NC30 lover's Aladdin's Cave of a garage.

Looking for some cheap thrills? Maybe it's time to buy a 2000-2001 Yamaha R1?
