The Honda CBR1000RR is one of the sportiest models developed by the Japanese manufacturer. Though, even if the bike is one of the most capable models in its class, Honda still wanted to make a few upgrades.

Honda’s engineers wanted to obtain a perfect mix between power, handling, riding quality, and overall build quality, and we’ll have to admit that the result is quite fascinating.

The 2013 Honda CBR100RR is propelled by a 999cc liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder mated on a six speed transmission. For first class performances the Honda CBR100 RR is also packed with a modern slipper clutch which assures full power transmission with smooth shifting and a light clutch pull at the lever.

Honda offers the motorcycle in two versions, one with Combined Anti-Lock Braking System (C-ABS), the first ever on a production Superbike. The 2013 Honda CBR1000RR is offered with a starting price of $13,800.

It is pretty safe to say that the 2013 KTM 1190 EC8 R is a true piece of engineering art. The motorcycle has all it needs to be considered one of the most capable super sports in its segment and is also powered by one of the most powerful V2 engines of our times.

Talking about the engine, is a 2-cylinder, 4-stroke, spark-ignition, liquid-cooled unit with a displacement of 1,195 cc. Fire it up and will reward you with a maximum output of 129 kW (173 hp). The engine is kept in leash by a 6-speed, claw shifted gear box.

The bike rides on a front high-quality upside-down fork from WP Suspension which can be adjusted separately for preload as well as for compression and rebound damping. Out back there is a modern WP shock absorber which completely isolates the rebound damping from the compression stage, so that they can each be adjusted independently of one another.

A classic 1993 Ducati Troll Supertwin was auctioned with an estimated price of €10.000-€15.000. After it was launched on the market, the motorcycle managed to gain pretty fast the “icon” status and conquered the heart of many riders. It is powered by a 904 cc SOHC Desmo V-twin unit mated on a six speeds transmission.

Built for the Sound of Singles series in Europe, only 67 were constructed from 1993-97, and Robert Holden placed 2nd in the Isle of Man TT on one. The “look” was so striking that Dutch company Troll offered a Supertwin Troll kit for your 900 SS—you provided the engine, and Troll came up with a rolling chassis, stylish body work and frame. However, it was very expensive, and only 13 were built. The bike on offer is No. 1 and the only one constructed with Ohlins suspension. In bright yellow, it is as new and an unrepeatable opportunity for the serious collector.

An old Ducati 748 Biposto was auctioned with an estimated price of €3.000-€4.000 (the bike was sold at a final price of €2.925). The motorcycle’s specifications included a 748 cc DOHC liquid-cooled Desmo V-twin paired with a six speeds transmission. The bike on offer was an original example in red with gold wheels.

The Ducati 748 was launched in 1995 as the smaller sister to the 916 and eligible to compete in the 600 Supersport class against the 600-cc four-cylinder Japanese racers. It was available as an SP and a dual seat Biposto; the SP generated 104 horsepower at 11,000 rpm, while the Biposto used milder Strada cams and produced 98 horsepower. The SP topped out at 154 mph, the Biposto at 151 mph. A number of riders have observed that the 748 engine is actually sweeter and likes to rev more freely than the torquier 916, which probably accounted for the model’s popularity.

The Ducati 916 was launched at the Milan Show in October 1993 and made even more of a splash than the Supermono did the year before. While the engine wasn’t significantly different from the 851, it was designed to be easier to service—which was a huge advance—and observers commented on the beautifully detailed workmanship. The engine developed 104.3 horsepower at 9,000 rpm, according to Cycle World, but improved aerodynamics made the 916 significantly faster, clocking 10.72 seconds for the quarter-mile at 130.62 mph and a top speed of 159 mph. The 916 won every magazine’s Bike of the Year award for 1994. The example on offer is a totally original and well-maintained example, in the less common and more attractive bright yellow colour, with gold wheels.

It is powered by a 916 cc liquid cooled DOHC Desmo V-twin engine which is paired with a six speed transmission and has an estimated price of 3.500-€5.000.
