The challenge was simple, can a £1500 superbike lap Cadwell less than five seconds away from a GSX-R1000 K6? We’ve got the video to show they can.

Click the screen below to follow the hilarious exploits of three MCN road-testers as they try to prove that £1500 will get you a bike that is almost as fast as the latest crop of sportsbike.

Will a 10 year old Blade, ZX-7R or a 13-year-old YZF750R really be a match for the incredible Gixer? The results are pretty surprising.

You can read the full story in the September 6 issue of MCN or click the link at the bottom of the page to download the video.
