Published: 12 November 2008

With the downward spiral from credit crunch to full-on recession MCN senior roadtester Trevor Franklin wanted to see if the economy of motorcycles can still be highly prized.

To find out Trevor took Suzuki's Sixteen, BMW's F650GS, Kawasaki's Z1000 and a Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade to Bruntingthorpe testing circuit in Leicestershire to conduct two tests.

Watch the video below to see how the Honda Fireblade got on and read the full article in MCN, Wednesday 12th 2008 to see how they all faired.
