    The bike of choice at the now-defunct Skip Barber Superbike School, the KTM RC8 R is an alternative choice for those looking for a high- performance V-twin superbike.

    A consistent winner in the IDM Series (German International Superbike), this motorcycle is something of a sleeper in America.

    Here was something fairly unexpected from Honda – a brand new sport bike powered by an oversquare 249cc single cylinder motor with a 10,500- rpm redline, the CBR 250 R.

    The liquid-cooled powerplant has double overhead cams, fuel injection via a 38mm throttle body, a counterbalancer, and ABS for the single 296mm front disc.

    Sleek and powerful, the BMW K 1300 S’s inline-four cylinder motor outputs a considerable 175 horsepower (claimed).

    BMW’s superb quick-shifter now aids the six-speed gearbox, and the second-generation electronically adjustable (on-the-fly) suspension makes a noticeable difference in varying road conditions aboard the K1300S.

    The words "automatic transmission" are often enough to send a motorcyclist running in the opposite direction. In the case of the 2011 Aprilia Mana 850 GT ABS, though, that would be a mistake.

    A sporty bike with a fully automatic continuously variable transmission, the Mana has excellent handling to go along with its ease of use.

    Ready to ride around the globe thanks to BMW’s impressive worldwide dealer network and user clubs throughout the planet, the R 1200 GS (or its Adventure-designated brother) is the bike of choice for intrepid riders.

    Perhaps the most off-road oriented of the large adventure bikes, the 2011 KTM 990 Adventure R has a dirt bike simplicity that keeps its weight and width under control.

    WP suspension is long travel-9.65 inches at both ends-so rugged single-track trails are not out of the question, especially if more aggressive aftermarket knobbies are installed.

    Continuing to expand its lineup, the Indian Chief Blackhawk Dark is new to the iconic brand.

    With a mini fairing, low seat (with a cowling for the passenger seat when riding solo), Brembo brakes (featuring floating dual rotors up front) and Michelin Commander II tires, the Chief Blackhawk Dark is not just about looking good.

    Repsol’s iconic graphics are now available on Honda’s 2011 CBR1000RR. Sadly, the absolutely spectacular C-ABS computer controlled anti-lock braking system is only available on the red/black model, forcing an unfortunate choice on the buyer.
