Issue 103 of Rapid continues to deliver on Rapid’s mantra – if it’s rapid, we’re into it. We test the new Thruxton R, Triumph’s sporty retro. What a fantastic bike, all the style of yesteryear but with today’s power and handling. We have a fair crack at Yamaha’s MT-07 and MT-09 nakeds too. There’s a number of modified bikes, including some beastly classic racers, like the Honda Four called ‘The Hulk’. It started life as 750cc, now it’s 1200cc. And you probably thought it couldn’t be done. There’s massive feature length articles on Kel Carruthers, the 1969 250cc world champ who came from Sydney. Ken Lucas is another old timer we visit. His collection of race bikes is pretty much second to none anywhere in the world. For you tech heads out there, we look at what goes into servicing suspension and how to capture that front end feel all riders want. Our resident Isle of Man TT racer is back at it, this time the Classic TT. Find out how he went. Don’t forget to catch up with our regular columnists too.
