2008-2009 IBOTY: MOTO Magazine, Greece

1. Ducati Desmosedici RR

The first MotoGP replica is the bike that highlights 2008. It is the very first time that we, common everyday riders, have the chance to feel and ride a MotoGP bike. To access the high-end technology and the same features that are used by top-class riders. A mechanical state of the art that even if it costs almost 60.000 euros, can be housed in a personal garage and not just a racing paddock. It's a pioneer that creates expectations for more of its kind, from other manufacturers. This move from Ducati deserves to be named Bike of the Year.

2. Husaberg FE450

In the world of enduro, where technological development has very narrow perspectives, the creative imagination of Husaberg's designers offered a different option. Not only did they dare to move in an unconventional track—alternative placement of the engine and the crankshaft—but they also built something that really works, especially when it comes to handling. A real revolution.

3. Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa

Suzuki made the good even better. Here's a sport-touring motorcycle that can achieve more than 300 kph and at the same time is an all-rounder easy to use, even in everyday riding. Comfortable, fun, friendly and FAST, it's a motorcycle that can be simultaneously practical and exciting. The Hayabusa is the motorcycle that many of us would like to have in our garage.
