Fast Bikes Issue 270 – January – On Sale Now!

Stop everything, Christmas has come early! Yup, the best present you’ll get this year is now in the shops, so get yourself out of the house and go and get the January issue of Fast Bikes. It’s another issue that’s packed to the rafters with awesome bikes, fantastic features, lovely ladies, racing galore and top masterclasses. If you’re going to make one New Year’s resolution in 2013, then make sure it’s that you don’t deny yourself any issue of Fast Bikes!

We round up the best of the rest of the 2013 bikes, including a range of top new MVs and the awesome new KTM 1290 Super Duke R. And this month we didn’t just gawp at new bikes, we rode them as well, as Al went off to Spain for the launch of the hotly anticipated Triumph Street Triple R.


Our big test of the year puts our longtermer modifications put to the sword. Our old mate, the Mamba, returns to cast his verdict on all the goodies that we’ve stuck on our machinery. As the headline says, don’t get mad, get even. We think you’ll be surprised at what bike has turned into an absolute monster…


We’ve also had a shot on what the next generation of wannabe Fast Bikers are going to be riding until they get their full license proper, with the new A2 license friendly Kawasaki Ninja 300 and the Honda CBR250R ridden and rated. Al gets a shot on his race bike on the road, and also gets to see our Armed Forces go to war on the track as the forces meet at Mallory.

As you can see from the contents below (click it for a bigger version), it’s another ram-jammed issue, full of everything you want – and nothing you don’t. Packed to the rafters with bikes, bits and the occasional lady, it’s a feast for the eyes! There’s all the regular pages too, so that means great product reviews, stacks of news, tests galore, Addiction, riding, legal and bike materclasses, a racing round-up, longtermers, and the list simply goes on and on… Get to your newsagents NOW
