THE BEST

YAMAHA OW48 Kenny Roberts, 1980 Yamaha USA’S iconic yel­low and black paint­work mim­icked the buzzy-bee sound of Yamaha’s early two-strokes.

PEPSI SUZUKI RGV500 Kevin Sch­wantz, 1989 It might have some­thing to do with the guy rid­ing it, but this just looked right: a big logo, clean, sim­ple.

JPS NOR­TON Ron Haslam, 1990 Bri­tish bikes are cool, black bikes are cool, so the JPS Nor­ton looked very cool. As a bonus, it sounded great as well.
