The bike of tomorrow - today, claims the manufacturer and we're inclined to agree. The 2013 Honda VFR1200F is a biking revolution, boasting a super-compact Unicam design and a snarling 1237cc V4 engine. Incorporating Honda's first ever Throttle By Wire system traction-control that's second to none and Dual-Clutch Automatic Transmission, this one really is a bike quite like no other. Prepare to leave your stomach behind.
We were fighting over who'd get to test-ride this latest offering. The 2013 Hypermotard SP is an absolute hoot to ride, the dirt bike look remains, but has been enhanced for higher ground clearance and is a good bit lighter than the previous model too. With forged Marchesini rims, adjustable shocks, ABS, traction control and aluminium wheels, it's the prefect ride on both track and tarmac - basically, everything that you'd expect from a Ducati and more.
The pursuit of perfection says the makers, and who are we to argue with the king of the superbike. The 2013 Ducati Panigale R boasts ride mode options to suit each individual rider, titanium piston rods, carbon fiber bodywork and twin cylinder 195 hp engine that offers fighter-jet-like precision, performance and handling.
Boy can this thing shift, and boy does it look bad-ass. The Confederate X132 Hellcat Combat Motorcycle is the fastest big block v-twin to ever zoom across the face of the earth and has set the speed record on the Bonneville Salts, clocking in at just over 172 mph. The 2 liter 160 hp fuel injected engine will easily manage 200 mph on the road, but they're only making 36 so you'd better get saving, fast.
Available in five models, all achingly cool and all powered by the revolutionary Z-Force motor whose performance is nearly double that of its nearest rivals on average makes the 2013 Zero Electric Motorcycles a speed-fiend's dream. So fast and so powerful in fact that they may just turn a few petrol-heads too.
Surely Evel Knievel's dream machine, a racing bike based on a stunt bike, the Yamaha Moto Cage Six Concept Motorcycle blends style, speed and the spectacular. With its open frame and nigh on neon paintwork it's certainly an eye catcher
Yeah, we know what you're thinking, looks cooler than Batman's bike doesn't it? Well, the Classified Moto KT-600 Motorcycle was actually built for a different star, in the form of actress Katee Sackhoff, but this isn't your average looking, or performing girl's, toy. With a Honda XL600R frame and motor, with parts from Triumph and Kawasaki thrown in for good measure, it's a lean, mean cocktail of motoring bad-ass-ness.
It's got to be the perfect toy for speed freaks with an environmental conscience. The Brammo Empulse R is a great looking, high performance electric motorcycle that feels and acts just like a regular one. Inspired by racing bikes and street fighters, not only is it fast, fun and furious, but 100% eco-friendly too.
Feast your eyes on this badboy piece of awesomeness, the KaffeeMaschine Moto Guzzi.
