Practical Sportsbikes July 2021

The July issue of Practical Sportsbikes is a 148-page special devoted to one of motorcycling’s most influential and beloved brands: Yamaha. From Fizzy to FZR, RD to R1, the Iwata factory has played a crucial part in shaping the bikes, the technology and even the culture of motorcycling. Whatever you ride, it likely owes something to their pioneering designs.

So we’re celebrating and charting those contributions, as well as revealing LC legend Hag Hughes fresh restoration/tribute to his first: one of the finest Readers’ Special from the early day of Performance Bikes. We revisit one of the best R1s – 2009’s crossplane model – and test the lastest MT-09SP, a bike which revives the LC’s hooligan spirit. And much more besides.
