A good feature , well done I had a mint 95 cbr I got for £1400 and did track days at oulton park ,loved it ,ive not bought a new bike in the last ten years , why bother when you can get some really good used stuff for little money , and enjoy the satisfaction of tydying them up a bit yourself !

Rubber rubber rubber

Is always the biggest influence on lap times. I'm sure if that brand spankers ZX6R was on Neeves' rubber it would been lapping over 2 mins too in those conditions.

A nice comparison challenge MCN.

Tyre equality a must

Why not in future comparison tests simply run all  bikes on the same rubber ? We learnt very little from this test as tyre issues spoilt the lap times completely. BSB, WSBK & MotoGP all use control tyres so from now on surely MCN must do the same - then we really learn which bike is best.

Tyre choice

It just goes to show, that unless you only ride on hot track days, then anything other than sports/touring tyres are a waste of money.


More grip, and a LONGER tyre life. I used to get 2500 miles from a rear Pirelli Dragon corsa on my Bandit 600.

On my ZZR600, a Pirelli Diablo STRADA lasts 5500 miles. They cost similar money, and I can still wear the pegs away :-)
