AMCN AusTest

Discussion in 'Racing, Motorsports, and Track Days' started by krusty74, May 13, 2009.

  1. Should be a few surprises in store for everyone to read when it comes out soon.

    We were at EC on Sunday testing all the 09 bikes...

    MV Augusta
    Ducati 1198S
    KTM RC8R
    Triumph 675
    Honda CBR 1000 & 600
    Yamaha R1 & R6
    Kawasaki ZX10 & ZX6
    Suzuki GSXR1000 & 600

    Cant say too much about it for obvious reasons, but it was a great day. And also good to get my crippled ass back on a bike. :LOL:
  2. Which bike did you do the best time on?

    You can tell us, cos the mag is out.
  3. That issue, not for two weeks I'd guess Rog.
  4. Bad guess perhaps. AMCN hits the newsagents today.
  5. If it is anything like last year, it will be two issues before it comes out.

    I was fastest on the blade (naturally)

    But there were 11 other riders there...
    I dont know what bikes won - 1198 was a nice piece of machinery though
  6. Looking forward to reading it mate. Can't spoil a couple of surprises for us?
  7. I knew that you would say that.
  8. So you reckon they tallied it all up after Sunday, by Monday arvo deadline?
  9. I dunno. Haven't been to a newsagent today. Have you?
  10. i have it in front of me
    they say the test will be in the next issue in a fortnihgt
  11. Oh cool :D

    I passed what looked like a bike road test today all 09 bikes r1, gsxr1k, zx10, cbr all chugging along near kulnura :LOL:
  12. Goodo. Can't wait to read it.
  13. Alex Gobert is writing the story on it I think... so expect a lot of Krusty bagging...

  14. More of a Sideshow Bob fan is he?
  15. With such an array of good bikes, it must be hard to get one clear winner.

    My moneys on the CBR though.

    Anyone taking bets??

  16. I aint betting on kawasaki thats for sure
  17. I wouldn't be surprised to see the 1198 score very well but I dare say most of the testers are more familiar with riding IL4s so they will be preferred.

    I understand that the KTM was the most distinctive to hear getting around the track too.
  18. Guessing...


    (lap times)
  19. Well............

    My 2nd fastest time was on the ZX10..... seriously
  20. All bikes on the Rossos again?
