It’s that time again! We’re back to decide which bike deserves the title of 2020 Ultimate Sportsbike!
We give it the first run its ever had, with a box-fresh 2020 Fireblade! The Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP blew us away earlier in the year in Qatar.
Now, we want to know exactly how much horsepower the bike is kicking out. Take a closer look here.
In this special edition, we’ve taken NINE of the very best sportsbikes and clocked a serious amount of miles, spun a serious amount of laps and wolfed down way more Big Macs than is advisable to establish the best sportsbike of 2020.
On the road, each bike has been ranked in terms of its comfort and usability, as well as its brakes, the effectiveness of its tech and its overall character, after taking each of the bikes on every kind of road possible, from smooth fast B-roads, to bumpy farm tracks, to motorways, to high streets.
Yesterday we teased you with the 2020 Kawasaki ZX-10RR. Watch how the green machine performed on the dyno run and track below.
On track, Dangerous Bruce has analysed all of the bikes’ drive, agility, stability, feel, tech and brakes, because we know that these bikes are exactly the type of thing that you are going to take on track, be it at a trackday or race meeting.
