Proud to lead where others follow, the team at Superbike Rental is delighted to be in proud possession of a brand new BMW S1000RR HP4 Carbon edition, which takes ultimate performance one step further. Keen motorbike enthusiasts will be well aware of the exceptional reputation the original BMW HP4 has; known for its ‘pure performance’, [...]
The Ducati 1198 is a race bike, pure and simple. It is immediately recognisable for its purposeful, no nonsense attitude. Performance is first and foremost in every detail. Ducati Superbikes look fast even when parked. Trade mark Ducati features like the high tail section and compact front end combined with twin under seat silencers and single-sided swinging arm to express the shear engineering beauty of aerodynamics and agility. Add the 1198 Testastretta Evoluzione engine as the heart of the machine and the result is all out performance
Nobody else has a 168bhp V-twin on its books, complete with traction control, Ohlins suspension, data-recording etc, and if they did it’d probably cost more than the £14,750 Ducati 1198S. And there’s a good chance it wouldn’t have the same devastating performance all wrapped up in a chassis that has more character than Lord Of the Rings’ Gandalf. This is truly one of those motorcycles that everybody should be allowed to ride once in their life for the experience of riding the best V-twin ever made.

Bike Hired - Ducati 1198
I moved to London last year and had to sell my motorbike as I would have no secure place to keep it. I found Superbike Rental by searching online, the website looked good, and was very pleased to find that 'it does what it says on the tin', and with a great level of service. The team made me feel welcome with a few cups of coffee while we did the paperwork and waited briefly for the weather to clear up. They had offered to postpone my booking given the poor weather early in the morning, but I was keen to get out on the bike as I'd taken the day off work and the forecast said sun was on the way. The weather cleared up quickly and at the end of a long day on the bike, they welcomed me back with more hot coffee and gave me a ride back to the train station. The bike store and office all looked very professional, the bikes looked in top condition, which gives you confidence out on the road, and the breakdown and support phone numbers were all provided. The briefing on the bike at the start of the day was thorough and inspection at the end of the day was very quick. I'm looking forward to researching some good bike routes, and booking my next trip.

Bike Hired - Ducati 1198
Ever since I saw that Top Gear episode where they search for the best driving road in Europe I knew I wanted to get there one day and drive on those roads.
And when I say drive, I mean ride. And when I say ride, I mean ride a fast Ducati!!
So Eventually it came to pass that I would be heading to Europe, unfortunately it was going to be in winter, so no Swiss Alps riding for me, but none the less, I still wanted to have a burn around the country side on a Duke.
But where was I going to find one? A brief internet search brought up some interesting results… but nothing quite what I was searching for.
So I upped the anti and searched for super bike rentals, and well, couldn't have got it more right! Found these guys straight away and quickly found my way to their fleet range and grinned as I saw three Ducati options for rent.
I didn't want to commit too early… but I had that feeling that I was never gonna find a better looking business online…
The prices looked great too, as I had found other rentals that only hired what I call "old man bikes" you know, those BMW's, and wanted pretty good money just for that. So I emailed Trina and she got back to me right away, everything sounded pretty easy. So finally we arrived in London and decided on a day to hit the road.
Trina was more than helpful in giving us directions on how to get there and which trains to catch and all that jazz, and she even organised someone to pick us up from Shenfield station!
Awesome, made it so easy for us, we just showed up, coughed up, and road away!
And then, after about 9 hours and 300 miles we returned! a little sore and tired but still happy. They were good enough to wait back for us and give us a lift back to the station. There were no hassles returning the bike, just a quick check over and see ya later.
Sometimes I know we like to deal with machines or just deal straight through a website because frankly sometimes dealing with people is a pain in the ass!
Not the case at all here! These guys make dealing with people a pleasure. At no time did I ever feel dumb for asking too many questions, and I had a few!
It was just a great day and great experience, and topped off our holiday!
