SuperBike was a monthly British motorcycling magazine. In addition to motorcycles, the magazine featured reviews of race bikes, dirt bikes, and others. It is now a completely digital motorcycle media platform, serving content to around half a million bikers a week.

Features[edit]

The magazine generally featured a mix of bike and product tests, some technical features, long term test bike reports as well as race features from WSB, BSB and MotoGP racing.

SuperBike featured a centerfold photograph of a topless lady with a motorcycle. This feature was discontinued in the May 2009 issue.

Spinoff television show[edit]

In January 2013, the British Loaded TV network started The Superbike Show.

Change of owner[edit]

In September 2013, the magazine was taken over by Blaze Publishing of Leamington Spa, England. SuperBike is now owned by G10 Media Ltd, after the former editor bought SuperBike from Blaze Publishing.

Closure[edit]

The January 2015 issue was noted as the final printed issue of SuperBike magazine UK after 38 years on the shelves and since then SuperBike South Africa has become the central hub of the printed version. It still exists as a printed edition in various countries such as, Hungary, Italy and Thailand. It is also available on an online platform and has a market leading social media footprint, hitting a million Facebook fans in August 2015.
