Performance Bikes magazine has defined the world of owning, riding and improving the very best sports bikes as much as the machine themselves since 1985. PB set the standard of objective performance testing every other magazine had to live up to – from dyno runs to track and speed testing, no other mag held manufacturer’s claims to account like PB. Three decades later, nothing has changed there, even if the bikes have.
BSB and road-racing hero Michael Rutter is PB’s super-fast, deadly consistent track tester – if he rates or slates a bike’s performance, you can trust his verdict like no other magazine test rider. The rest of our team are just as devoted to getting under the paint of the latest bikes, but also to finding the best ways to get more from your ride – whether that’s just a new pair of tyres or a whole new chassis, PB tirelessly works to tell you everything you need to know about what works, and what doesn’t. Our fleet of new test bikes (as well as PB staff’s own second-hand heros) are put to work year-round to rate the best parts, services and gear, and PB readers’ specials features continue to inspire home-modifiers the world over.
We use the best racing experts you the people, stories and bikes of MotoGP, WSB and BSB, and we’re out talking to the people working on the most exciting road and race bikes to bring you exclusive features. And our garage section is rammed with advice on buying, owning and improving your bike.
Enjoy the mag.
