Base Model Blitz – Out Now!

In our latest fine edition (344, Sept ’18) we pit all the base model Superbikes against one another to find out which is the best for your money – which would you like?!

The boys got together the cheapest versions of the best Superbikes available for a good old road hack. So, which came out on top from Suzuki’s GSX-R1000, Honda’s Fireblade, Kawasaki’s ZX-10R, Ducati’s Panigale V4, Yamaha’s R1 and Aprilia’s RSV4 RR?


You’ll find all the info you need to make an informed decision on what might be right for you from this test, if you’re looking at one of these base model machines – but don’t forget, a test ride is always advised just to make sure whichever bike is right for you!

They don’t have to be the top level versions to still be incredible, and some of these (given what they come with as stock over others here) could be considered a huge bargain! Yet with the prices ranging from ¬£13,699 (Kawasaki) to ¬£19,250 (Ducati), there should be something here for all tastes – and wallets!


There’s also plenty more inside the issue to gawp over, including a test on the Suzuki BSB bike!
