2011 Literbike Streetfighter Shootout


It's that time of year again. Flowers are in bloom, trees are sprouting green leaves, mother ducks are escorting ducklings around the pond and love is in the air.

'Round here that blooming love is for one of our favorite types of motorbike. They're motorcycles with sensible, upright ergos and a minimalist ethos capped off with plenty of horsepower, torque and sportbike-like chassis geometry. These two-wheelers with a wild side often also come with badass looks and have the performance to back up their tuff-guy stance.

We love 'em lots, these mass-produced rebels; and this time we've Supersized our moto meal for what we're calling our Literbike Streetfighter Shootout!

Triumph's revised-for-2011 Speed Triple is ready to reassert itself against the returning Kawasaki Z1000 – a bike we deemed last year as our preferred hooligan mount. But the brutish Z won't have it so easy this year since the new-to-America Honda CB1000R is entered in the naked-bike fray.

soo.. where do i sign up for that job?

interesting the Z lacks the steering input.. will have to look to see if geometry was retained between this and the last machine.
CB1000R is a slick bike as well. wouldn't mind jumping on one of those.. would be cool if they retained the cassette trans from the RR so you could make a violent track weapon from it
