World Superbike Smackdown

World Superbike SmackdownWorld Supersport Shootout
MotoUSA tests all seven factory World Superbikes as well as the top two World Supersport machines!
Ponder this scenario for a second – let’s call it the World Superbike Smackdown: All seven factory World Superbikes ridden back-to-back by the same person and compared as such. Pipe dream, right? Not anymore. I just returned from doing exactly that in Portimao, Portugal, and just such a story will be in the next issue of MotoUSA Magazine! Doesn’t get any bigger than this, people…

And the icing on the cake? We rode the top two dominating machines in this year’s World Supersport Championship – Cal Crutchlow’s factory Yamaha R6 and Eugene Laverty’s factory-supported Honda CBR600RR – in a similar fashion and will be bringing you a shootout of these two on the website in the coming weeks. Say hello to the World Supersport Shootout!

So stay tuned both online and in print as Motorcycle USA is once again taking it to the next level!

Between 5-15 laps each depending on the bike. And, yes, the goal is to have all of these in street form next year!
Superbikes -Looking forward to this October 31, 2009 10:53 AM
How much seat time will you get on each bike? Also, will there be a street version of this test next year? CBR vs R1 vs ZX10 vs GSXR vs. S1000rr vs. 1198 vs. RSV vs. LC8 vs. 1125 (whoops, maybe not the 1125)?

I've been checking the site daily since you mentioned this a few days back. Will a version of it be online or just in the print mag?
