In this week's issue: Sportsbike shootout

1 of 1

In this week’s issue, we put Honda’s new Fireblade SP and the new Suzuki GSX-R1000R against five other top superbikes to see who is the undisputed 2017 superbike king. 

We ride all seven bikes in torrential rain on the roads, spend two days on track putting them through their paces and take them to the drag strip and dyno leaving no stone unturned. Can the two new bikes topple the established order?
