In case you have an iPad, you can simply buy the digital version of the magazine.

Thanks for posting this. The results are almost exactly what I predicted to one of my friends, except with the BMW S1000RR in third and the ZX-10R in 4th.

So, I'm a pretty happy Man looking at these results... I suspect the 2015 Panigale 1199R will be faster still than the Yamaha and the 1299, but I think the decision to buy the 1299 was the right one for me.

I suspect we should all be congratulating Ducati on raising their game.

The Ducati was the one I wasn't sure of. I know from experience that the BMW S1000RR is a freaking monster and that the ZX10R is also really good, so seeing the 1299 come in a very close second allays my fears that it wasn't going to live up to my expectations.

What did the 1299 dyno? Any acceleration numbers? Can't see the small print.

Whoopazz, MCN says Aprilia and MV declined to participate because they both have new models coming in the (northern hemisphere) spring.
Thanks from Whoopazz

Angus1609, I can't seem to copy the page with enough resolution to post the results directly, but:
Ducati 196.39bhp@10,250; 105.17ftlb@8,500 (gotta love 2 decimal places on those figures - obviously the MCN editor hasn't got a science degree)
BMW 196.26bhp@13,250; 85.05ftlb@9,000
Yamaha 189.28bhp@13,500; 82.98ftlb@8,500
Kawasaki 180.61bhp@13,500; 78.72ftlb@11,500
Honda 173.16bhp@12,000; 82.85ftlb@10,500
Suzuki 166bhp@11,000; 81.11ftlb@9,500
