The most sophisticated and technically advanced motorcycle in the world came from New Zealand, the Britten

#hashtags: #Britten #Renowned #Alan Cathcart

Last October, the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum celebrated the Britten, and was able to get 9 of the ten made to give the Britten a terrific showing, the most ever collected at one time and place.Renowned motorcycle journalist Alan Cathcart said of the bike: "It’s an easy bike to ride, in the sense it’s got a very wide power delivery, but to really get top performance, you have to ride it like a grand prix bike." And having ridden all the superbike contenders in the world today, I can say that the Britten is the closest to a grand prix bike."The bike went on to win the Battle of the Twins in Daytona International Speedway's Daytona Bike Week festivities in the United States and set a number of world speed records.
