A good review, typical of sportrider.
I think that what makes a bike the best really comes down to personal preference/s. Ergonomics will feel different to each person, and whats comfortable for me may not be comfortable for someone else who is the same height/weight as i am. The visual appeal will differ depending on the personal tastes of the person viewing it and when it comes to performance, that is once again a personal choice. The bikes in the sportrider test have a max of .5 secs seperating them 0-100km/h times, unless the bike is being raced this .5 secs means nothing.
Regardless of what bike/s we choose if we choose what fits our personal preferences we will all have the 'best' bike.
