Video: Crescent Suzuki vs Stobart Honda on the road

Published: 25 September 2007

If you thought standard 1000cc sports bikes were scary enough on the road, think again. Both this Stobart Blade and Crescent GSX-R1000 are in virtually full-on BSB race spec, which means they’re considerably lighter than stock (so much so they’re now not much heavier than a standard 600), boast over 200bhp and are equipped with full race suspension.

What’s more, I’m about to ride them not only on their more usual stomping ground, the track (in this case Cadwell Park), but also on the road, as you will be able to too, if you’re prepared to stump up the £25,000+ each costs.
