Rapid Bikes | October Out Now

The October issue of Rapid Bikes is now on the stands.

Mick Withers explains what you will need to get started on engine rebuilding, and we reach the second part of our story on the legendary Kenny Blake.

Ever wanted to know what carbon-fibre wheels actually do? Jeff has the answer as he takes Project ZX-10R out to Eastern Creek for an in-depth test on the GZA carbon-fibre spinners.
The first half of the story on Computrack’s Greg McDonald is featured too, and Jeff returns from the world launch of Yamaha’s all-new VMAX in San Diego with stretched arms.

The comparo flavour of the past few months continues as Rennie Scaysbrook pitches the 2008 GSX-R750 Suzuki and 848 Ducati head-to-head in Rapid Bikes’ class without a class comparo, while Pommie gets naked when he takes the Yamaha FZ1 and Triumph’s Speed Triple for a thrash.

From the US of A, DAK accessories bring us a mighty 300-horsepower GSX-R1000K5 while our resident streetfigher-mad German, Sabine, teams up with Mick Withers to bring us a VMAX that has to be seen to be believed.

Jeff Smith showcases his immaculate 1098S Ducati, which is so shiny you’ll be reaching for the Ray Bans.

Sven Stalp’s sleeper 1999-model Hayabusa turbo graces the pages this month along with a wild little turbo GS500 Suzuki that has scooped up a few ASF awards in its time.

The Used Ride is Phil Harlum’s 1998-model Kawasaki ZX-9R.

Moto GP Strong Tickets Sales

In less than a month the world’s fastest men on two wheels will descend on Phillip Island for the 2008 GMC Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix.

The GMC Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix brings big-spending tourists, creates employment and business opportunities and provides regional Victorians with an opportunity to enjoy world-class entertainment in their own backyard.

Ticket sales are again strong and organisers are expecting a bumper crowd to attend over the three days. This year additional grandstand seats have been made available to meet the strong demand and corporate sales are up on last year.

This year marks the 14th running of the world’s premier class of motorcycle racing at the iconic Phillip Island circuit, with the race secure until at least 2011.

The 2008 Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix, Phillip Island, 3 - 5 October
