Attack Performance Yoshimura Suzuki Ama Pro American Superbike

Choice to ride the Team Cycle World Attack Performance Yoshimura Suzuki AMA Pro American SuperBike. But when our initial pick, former Daytona 200 winner Steve Rapp, and later 2009 AMA Pro SuperSport Champion Leandro Mercado became unavailable, Beaubier went from on-deck to batter-up status with the blessing of AMA Pro Racing. Weeks after we shipped the June issue (Team Cycle World Is Going Racing), AMA Pro Racing changed its mind. Citing of big-bike experience, officials denied the...

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ElO ETHANOL FUEL Gums rapidly form in the fuel tank and fuel delivery systems as ethanol fuels age.

Dyno results were mirrored in our acceleration testing conducted at the dragstrip. Even when nailing a wheel-floating holeshot, the XR took 2 seconds longer to move its mass through a standing quarter-mile than the very closely matched inline-Fours. An unfair matchup, it would seem, underscored by its 119-mph measured top speed being well shy of the 129-mph dragstrip terminal speeds posted by the Z1000 and Brutale. Whereas Thursday-night bracket racers will appreciate the ease with which the...

I used to be struck by the similarity between the specs of a new race-bike and the fashion section of Vogue magazine. In both cases, everything is the product of specialists, and the final result arises from moving these standard pieces around to get the best effect. Madame wears introduces the reader to the makers of the skirt, the handbag, the blouse and the shoes. In the case of the motorbike, we recognize the Marchesini wheels, Brembo or Nissin brakes and Ohlins or Showa suspension. And...

The lashed-on milk crate is one of the great utility-expanders in motorcycling. But, due to shortcomings in weather protection and security, it's not nearly as nice as having a bike with real bags. While there are many Big Bike options in Luggage Land see p. 36 for three of the biggest , a middleweight machine offers utility and ease of handling on a day-to-day basis that is tough to beat, while also offering enough power, comfort and wind protection for long trips. Which is why we rounded up...

With its crankshaft above the gearbox and with super-radical horizontal cylinders. Hmm, while ever-higher cornering angles do need narrower or higher-mounted engines, this, by shifting the crank rearward, would unload the front wheel, making such a bike squat and push in corners. Inspiration for this image comes from three recent Kawasaki patents. The first is for horizontal cylinders stacked atop the gearbox. The next is for pneumatic valve

The roads around the lodge and through the golf course were basically empty. I got used to my right hand flipping the throttle lever back and forth between bouts with grabbing the next shift. The power was amazing better, I fear, than my 26-year-newer Velocette MSS, itself a good-running, performance-modded 500cc Single of British origin. The air had grown cool but the warmth of the day lingered and the moisture from the grass crept up in a mist as I ripped across...
