Was waiting for the new Aprilia to join the party, all the new Liter bikes this year are some serious baddass bikes! to think anyone can just pop in a dealer and buy one is crazy when you think about it. To just pick one without riding any of them would be tough for sure, but damn the new Ape is SICK.
Where is Suzuki or MV you ask?
There’s no Suzuki GSX-R1000 or KTM RC8. Both are fine motorcycles in their own right, but without any revisions for 2015 – and having failed to win our previous shootouts – there was no purpose in bringing them back. We invited MV Agusta to the party, hoping to be among the first to spin laps aboard the new F4 RC, but unfortunately MV couldn’t provide a unit for us to test. We also handed an invite to Erik Buell Racing to see if a 1190RX could be thrown in the mix, but with the untimely closing of the company’s doors, that request, sadly, could not be filled
