It’s the naked GSX-R1000 K5 we all hoped it would be. The GSX-S1000 is fast, fun, agile and cheaper than its rivals. That iconic long-stroke engine has the K5’s distinctive growl and wide spread of power. The cast aluminium frame is actually lighter than Suzuki’s road-going superbike, but it has a longer wheelbase and lazier steering geometry for stability on the road. The aluminium swingarm is lifted straight from the GSX-R1000.
Triumph’s sport models known for their Inline three cylinder engines combing the linear power delivery of a Inline 4 with the torque of a V-Twin to make the perfect combination. This R model comes with highly desirable extras as standard which cost half as much as the bike, this particular example has the added benefit of further extras making it one of the more desirable models on the used market, come down to view as this bike needs to be seen and heard to be appreciated
Honda CBR600RR is a track biased missile for its generation. The Honda CBR600RR needs its 600cc inline 4 revving to extract all its 115 claimed bhp and with the red line at 15,000 rpm you’ll feel like a MotoGP rider as you do it.
The Street Twin is a brilliant roadster in its own right add in the retro style, Triumph’s unrivalled heritage and a sensible price tag and you’ve got a winner. With its smooth liquid-cooled 900cc motor, easy handling and modern day electronic rider aids, the Triumph is a cinch to get on with, but fun, too.
Suzuki has never made a bad GSX-R1000 and the new GSX-R1000 K7 is no different. Not only does it have more power than previous generations– up 7bhp to 185bhp - it’s now better handle than ever. The user-friendly nature of the Suzuki GSX-R1000 was always its best asset, and now thanks to a three way power switch you can choose how much power you need depending on the conditions.
Kawasaki ZX6R RAF In terms of chassis and handling this generation Kawasaki ZX-6R is a big step forward over the old ZX-6R (P7F/P8F). The new big piston forks use MotoGP technology and make a huge difference. They take a little getting use to at first but enable you to brake devilishly late yet the bike remains stable. Engine wise 115bhp at the back wheel makes it the most powerful standard 600 for that era, say no more.
For a supersports machine that’s as easy to ride to the shops as it is round Donington Park the 2004 R6 comes close to spot-on. Launched as a rearguard action while the factory prepared their dinky, ride-by-wire ’06 hottie, this older version of the Yamaha YZF-R6 still comes with toys like radial brakes and is seriously underrated all for a fraction of the price of the 06 models
Kawasaki raised the bar again when releasing the 2013 ZX6R with KTRC (traction control) as standard the set up created really makes for a sharp super sports that has to be ridden to appreciat the agility this bike has.
