RAPID BIKES #68 on sale today!
Issue #68 of Australias leading modified motorcycle magazine is on sale today, just in time for the Long Weekend in NSW.
The cover bike is a BMW called Slugger. With 204 rear-wheel horsepower, 150 ft/lb of torque from the turbod HP2 Boxer engine and hub-steering, this thing is wilder than your ex-mother-in-law!
The evil continues with a test of manhood aboard the Ducati Diavel, the bike that should come with self-control and a licence carrying unlimited points.
The fun kicks on with a head-to-head family feud between Suzukis GSR and GSX-R 750s. A hot rod Ducati that has a right to the name Monster is featured. Subtle yet capable of king-hits is the turbocharged Suzuki GSR600. Able to drag six fat men out of a pie shop, the PTR-modified Suzuki Bandit opened more than just eyes when we rode it.
Earning its place is the second part of our in-depth interview with Mat Mladin and a look at his awesome career, along with our interview with Mick Doohan.
Our long termers all get a run as does the first look at Pirellis Rosso II Road tyres.
Speaking of firsts, weve got a scoop with our report of the Australian Nationals from Sydney Dragway.
Youll need a long weekend to get through issue #68 of Rapid Bikes
