The September 2013 issue of Sport Rider
is now on sale, and can be purchased in either print or digital format. In this issue, we throw a leg over Suzuki’s updated 2013 Hayabusa and Gladius-derived SFV650, and then head to Willow Springs Raceway in Rosamond, CA, to compare three of Italy’s greatest superbikes, the Ducati Panigale R, Aprilia RSV4 Factory ABS and MV Agusta F4RR.
’s 2013 Suzuki Hayabusa test bike didn’t remain stock for long thanks to longtime speed enthusiast Brock’s Performance, and between the pages you’ll find a story on how the ‘Busa ran with just a few bolt-on modifications. There’s a full test on Ducati’s Skyhook Suspension-equipped Multistrada 1200S Touring, an action-sports camera buyer’s guide, and a first look at Yamaha’s FZ-09 and MV Agusta’s class-dividing F3 800. Whether you favor straight-line speed, sport touring, or electronics-laden superbikes, this issue is sure to keep you entertained.
