Print and digital editions available

Ulyana Hayden

The April 2013 issue of Sport Rider is now on sale, and is available in print and digital editions. This issue is our twenty-year anniversary issue and features a special, fifteen-page section that's dedicated to our best covers, most memorable feature stories and the products, people and racers that helped shape the sportbike world.

Between the covers you’ll also find a story on the history of the MotoGP World Championship and a full test on the 2013 Kawasaki ZX-6R, which we tested against the smaller-displacement, 2012 ZX-6R in an effort to find the bigger differences between the two models. Little-bike enthusiasts are covered as well; the April 2013 issue features this year’s lightweight sportbike comparison, which put Honda’s CBR250R up against the all-new Kawasaki Ninja 300 and updated Hyosung GT250R.

Each of this issue's feature stories has more to offer than originally meets the eye. In our ZX-6R test, for example, we also rode a 2004 ZX-6R 636 and tested Avon's 3D Ultra Supersport tires. In similar fashion, we tested this year's 250 models on the racetrack, when equipped with slip-on exhausts and asked our female test riders to give us their opinion on each bike's performance. Whether you're interested in Kawi's new ZX-6R, a new-rider-friendly 250 or simply looking for a little entertainment in the form of a history lesson SR style, this issue is sure to satisfy your needs.
