Every year, motorcycle journalists from various bike mags from around the world get together, and do the MasterBike, where they decide on which is the best superbike / sportsbike in the world.
The MasterBike 2007 was recently held at the Jerez circuit in Spain, and the bike which is currently billed as the world’s fastest production motorcycle – the MV Agusta F4 R 312 – beat the Ducati 1098 and the Aprilia RSV 1000 to win the ‘Italian Superbike’ category.
Then, in the final smackdown, the F4 R 312 also beat the Yamaha R1 (winner of the 2007 Japanese Superbike category) and the Triumph 675 (winner of the 2007 Supersport 600 class), taking overall top honours in the MasterBike 2007. This win comes at a good time for MV, as they prepare to go racing in World Superbikes next year with Carl Fogarty’s team.Also see:
