Whoops! Someone Knocked Over One of the Most Expensive Superbikes in the World - Popular Mechanics

Ducati recently announced the next generation of superbike, the 1,103-cc four-cylinder-powered screamer known as the Panigale V4. The 2018 bike usurps the iconic Panigale 1299 for the throne of Ducati's top superbike, and the limited-edition Speciale comes from the blueprint of a MotoGP bike, featuring a suit of electronic control measures, titanium racing exhaust, an exclusive paint scheme, and 226 horsepower—making it most powerful prooduction superbike in the world.

The price tag would be a negotiation with your dealer, but the base Panigale V4 is expected to run around $25,000. One of only 1,500 planned Panigale V4 Speciales will bleed you for more like $50,000. After a low-key unveiling in Italy, the bike is making its grand public debut at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, and reviewers are wondering if it could be the best superbike...

WSB: Sykes takes control in Rea's absence at Jerez - Motorcycle News

Tom Sykes topped the second day of this week’s World Superbike test in Jerez in the absence of team-mate Jonathan Rea.

Rea had to head back to London on Monday evening to collect his MBE, leaving Sykes to fly the flag alone for KRT.

Second fastest on the opening day, Sykes significantly improved his time to 1’39.692, just a whisker of the fastest time Rea had set on day one – 1’39.650.

The Yorkshireman’s time came earlier in the day, with many riders reporting the track to be much greasier in the hottest temperatures in the afternoon than it was on Monday.

Loris Baz was second quickest as he continues to both get to grips with the Althea BMW and riding a superbike after two years in MotoGP. The Frenchman was 0.776 seconds behind Sykes and looked comfortable out on track, commenting he’d found a particularly good feeling with the front end of the S1000RR.

Exclusive Interview: Jonathan Rea on 2017, his competition and MotoGP - Motorcycle News

After another year of total domination, Jonathan Rea is fast becoming the Valentino Rossi of World Superbikes.

Winning three WSB crowns in a row had never been one before – not even by former series greats Carl Fogarty and Troy Bayliss. And at the age of 30 and his future confirmed in WSB, Rea is exploring the limits of what is possible within his chosen category – just like Rossi did in the previous decade in MotoGP.

MCN sat down with Rea to find out what makes him untouchable.

Carl Fogarty has called you the WSB GOAT, what does it feel like being on the verge of beating his records?

It is nice! I grew up travelling with my parents because my Dad raced. He and Foggy raced together and had respect. We bumped into him once at a motorway service station when we were travelling to a motocross race and he was talking to my Dad like an old friend. I was kind of in awe… Carl really...

Can either Dylan or Rob stop Chaz from racing to victory? - Brecon & Radnor Express

WITH its forest tracks and mountain roads, mid Wales is the perfect area for spawning stars of motorsport and rallying.

So it’s not surprising two of the leading contenders for the Sportsman of the Year award in the inaugural Brecon & Radnor Express Sports Person of the Year Awards are from this field.

Granted World Superbikes star Chaz Davies now competes on some of the smoothest racing tracks available, but he and rally driver Jason Pritchard have both grown up in a region where motorsport is very much in the blood.

Presteigne rider Chaz, who started out competing in the British Mini Moto championships circuit, last year won seven races in the World Superbike series, finishing second to Jonathan Rae, the Northern Irishman who set a trail of records on his way to his third WSB title.

Two second places on the final...

Gagne joins Red Bull Honda for full 2018 WSBK campaign

Jake Gagne will make the full-time switch to the World Superbike championship for 2018 with the Red Bull Honda squad as Leon Camier’s team-mate after impressing during replacement riders this season.

Gagne made his series debut at Laguna Seca last July and scored a pair of 15th places stepping in for the team after the tragic passing of Nicky Hayden.

Gagne returned as replacement rider for Red Bull Honda for the French and Qatar rounds with three additional points finishes, while he ended the MotoAmerica season 11th in the riders’ championship.

WSB: Rea tops opening day of Jerez test - Motorcycle News

Jonathan Rea started off the 2018 World Superbike season where he left off as pre-season testing got underway at Jerez today.

The three-time world champion took to the top of the timesheets from his first laps of the 2.8-mile Andalusian circuit and remained there all day as he continued to improve as Kawasaki test their machine in full 2018-spec for the first time.

Rea’s quickest time of the day, 1’39.650, is quicker than he has ever lapped here on race tyres and just 0.7 off the time he set on qualifying rubber at Jerez 12 months ago to outpace a number of MotoGP machines.

After clocking 42 laps today, Rea won’t be on track on Tuesday as he heads back to London to collect his MBE from the Queen, before heading back to Jerez to complete the test.

KRT’s second rider Tom Sykes followed Rea on the timesheets, some 0.355 back after 57 laps on track while Milwaukee Aprilia’s Eugene...
