SF 217 - out imminently

Subscribers will be getting their copies of Streetfighters #217 around about now.

This month’s cover bike is Spart’s awesome turbocharged Hayabusa, presented with our gloriously butt naked model, Paige. Elsewhere in the mag we bring you a beautifully finished Irish GSX-R, the fantastic RSD KTM 525 cafĂ© racer ‘Katosh’, an awesome flamed-up Hungarian Katana 750, a 140bhp GSX1400 by DSD and many more.

There’s events coverage from EICMA Milan 2012 and the Rat’s Hole Show in Daytona, ACU drag racing, project bike updates and all the usual news, products, reviews, opinions, fanmail letters, small ads and weird, inexplicable stains that make it smell so good.

If you’re not a subscriber you’ll have to wait another entire week to get yours from the shop. SF #217 hits the shelves on Thursday 2nd February. Get a subscription here:

If these pics don't make you want to learn how to drift, then you're already dead.
The pics, and plenty more, are available at

2012 KTM Duke 690

One half of the Streetfighters Editorial team (the better looking half, or so his mum says) is off to Spain on Sunday night, as a guest (or adoptee) of KTM Motorcycles.

They're launching the 2012 Duke 690, the fourth major incarnation of the Austrian factory's iconic hooligan thumper. Our fearless (feckless?) journalist will test this bike to its absolute limits in order to bring you the most comprehensive roadtest around, before retiring to the hotel to test KTM's bar tab to the absolute limits and, eventually, to puke on his own feet and fall asleep.

This is KTM's own film of the new Duke 690. Make sure you check out SF #218 (on the shelf at the beginning of March) for the full roadtest feature.

Got Your Bearings?

Here's a handy link for those of you who're planning a front end swap.
You can check your bearing sizes, and thus work out either what bearing you need to purchase, or whether a swap will be a direct swap or not (as long as the stem is the right length, of course) by checking the list here

Nitro Circus

You've probably already seen this clip, as it's plastered all over Facebook etc, but it's worth another watch anyway...

It's going to be fantastic on the big screen!

It was a while ago when we featured these two cafe racers, as built by one Roland Sands. But, seeing as we'll be featuring another bike built by Roland in the next issue, we'd thought we'd show you this wee video...
