We’re launching into 2013 with style, with perhaps the coolest GIA-framed TL1000 you’ve ever seen adorning our cover and spread.
Inside we’ve got a spectacular Polish Kawasuki, a Germanic Martek, a gorgeous oldskool Katana, a fat-wheeled GSX-R K6, an H2-engined Slabside, a minimalist GPX750R and many more awesome custom machines including, shockingly, a streetfightered 883 Sportster. Nah, don’t worry, we’ve not gone all effeminate, this is a purposeful piece of kit with a spec list as long as your arm and performance to match. My personal favourite from SF228, however, has to be the Aprilia RSV Mille which has been converted into a Ski-Doo.
Add to that coverage from Motorcycle Live at the NEC (including our Custom Xtreme exhibit), our teenage fanboy-like adulation of what looks like being the most insane production bike yet, product reviews, news stories, editorials, project bike updates and regular illustrations from Vizman and Andy Sparrow, and we reckon 2013 is off to a good start already.
