blast off for boothy...

There was a bit of blood, a good chunk of sweat and I believe someone (Carl…) might have even shed a few tears in the making of Ultimate Sports Bike 2019. I’ll be honest, at one point, after months of planning, graft and countless cups of tea, it looked as if our biggest ever sportsbike test was about to fall flat on its backside, but thanks to the brilliant industry that we’re in, and too many key individuals to mention by name, we pulled off a test quite like no other, being the first in the country to gather the full plethora of 2019’s best sportsbikes and to give them a good spanking on road, track and on proving ground. It was an epic undertaking, but also a real privilege…

fast bikes trackday in association with bridgestone is almost here!

In case you missed it a few months ago, we’ll be back at Cadwell Park once again for our very own trackday on Monday, July 1. The day will be run across the usual format, with groups for Novice, Intermediate and Advanced – meaning there’s a session fit for everyone. Not only will we just be riding, as we’ll also have competitions on the day, goody bags, freebies, and some super cool stuff that’s a surprise. One thing we do promise though, is that it’s going to be bloody awesome. For more information or to book on with us, head over to www.nolimitstrackdays.com.Oh, and keep on www.fastbikesmag.com as we release more info on the lead up to it. It’s going to be a blast!…

dainese announce two more experience projects

Following the success of their Riding Master event at Misano last month, Dainese have just announced not only another track school, but also an expedition trip for good measure. Taking place on June 29, the Riding Master Franciacorta will follow the same format as before, with classes looking after everyone from absolute novices to budding racers and everything in between. If you fancy an off-road adventure, the new Expedition Masters experience will be held from July 27 to August 4, spanning the entire perimeter of Iceland on a fleet of BMW R 1250 GS rentals. The tour starts in Reykjavik and passes by active volcanoes, geysers, glaciers and fjords, alongside having training camps along the way for the ultimate off-road experience. It will set you back a whopping €7,299, but that includes the…

book a ktm test ride, win motogp tickets!

That sounds like a win win, doesn’t it? So if you’re looking for a new KTM Street road bike and fancy being in with a chance of winning some VIP MotoGP tickets, get yourself booked in for a test ride by the July 31 and you’ll be entered into a competition to win a special weekend at Silverstone with the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team for you and a mate.

motorcycle live reduce parking prices…

Oh yes, just what we like to hear! We all love going to bike shows, but things do get a tad pricey, don’t they? Well thankfully for this year Motorcycle Live has reduced the car parking prices by a pretty handsome 25%. This means that car parking booked in advance will set you back £10, while on the day will be £12, so you can spend more money on bikes and kit… or something like that. As always, bike parking is free, and advanced tickets are on sale now. The show will run from the 16th-24th November, and we look forward to seeing you there… For more info, head over to www.motorcyclelive.co.uk…

mv put their superveloce 800 serie oro concept into production

Here at Fast Bikes, we like something that’s a bit different, and the Superveloce 800 Serie Oro is exactly that… Released at EICMA last year, a lot of people went absolutely nuts about it, which is exactly why MV Agusta have finally confirmed that they are putting it in production. Timur Sardarov, CEO of MV Agusta actually went on to say that “This is one of the meanest and most stylish bikes we’ve ever produced” - although we’d probably say those accolades go to the Brutale 1000 any day of the week. They’re available for pre-order now through your local dealer, or failing that, the MV Agusta website. The first 300 bikes are set to be delivered in March 2020, although we’re still yet to hear word on a price……
