Superbikes shootout: six of the best

We round up a selection of our favourite bikes that cost more than a small car

Testing superbikes is a hard job, but someone has to do it...

Testing superbikes — bikes that we categorise as costing more than a cheap car — is among one of the better jobs that we have here at BikeRadar. So, after months of thankless and brutal toil, clocking hundreds of miles in all conditions, all in the good name of bike journalism, we’re pleased to present the results of this year's test.

With an assortment of luscious bikes from Giant, Trek, Wilier, Cannondale, Cervélo and Bianchi, there’s bound to be an unobtainable ride featured that will set your heart a flutter and make your wallet terribly anxious.
