I love my Speed, but I also keep in mind that this is a Britain survey, and like with previous surveys, Triumph are always in the top 3. I think they do build amazing bikes ( I know I LOVE mine), but I think a part of the results might also have to do with where the survey is done. One thing Im surprised with is seeing the Speed Triple in front of the Street Triple on handling. I haven't tried the Street but from what I've heard it's one of the best handling bikes out there, thinner and lighter then the Speed Triple...

Not surprised to see the Super Duke in #1, wish I could test ride one of those...

no brutale?!  OK, expensive and rare, but surely that has to be in a top ten?

No Duc Street fighter either?  I know that thing handles very well.  Better than the Speed Triple anyway.

FZ6?

Sorry but I had an '04 FZ6 and it should not be on here.  It was great in straight line and it was OK on race-track smooth sweepers.  Just try to hussle it through the twisties or an 'average' british road (even before the last winter).  Even minor ripples push the front wide and make it feel totally disconnected from the front.  The on/off fuelling didn't help either.

Where are the Buells?

CB1300?

Honda CB1300? for handling.. infront of them Triumphs, come on MCN you must be making it up... I love my Aprilia Pegaso Strada £3K for an '09 plate corners on a coin. But it seems on the whole us Brits like a 4Cylinder 600cc. Each to their own but I don't agree.

It's a popularity, not handling, contest

As others have said, no Aprilia Tuono R. No MV Agusta Brutale. I'll add: No Buell 1125CR (or even Lightning)? No Ducati Hypermotard or Streetfighter? Not even a Ducati Monster? Come on! And the CB1300, FZ1, FZ6, and ER-6n? Come on! They're okay, but they aren't superior (or even close to) the bikes I (and others) mentioned.

This is clearly nonsense. Honda's best handling naked the CB1300?? Better handling than the Hornet, CB1000R or even CBF600, I doubt it!
