You’ve no doubt noticed that the era of the twin may very well be coming to a close in World and AMA Superbike racing. Here, the Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R1000s are handing the RC51 and Ducati twins their butts on a platter more often than not. Overseas, WSBK has turned into the Ducati Cup, with no official Honda or Aprilia entries.

This may be the end of the line for sporting-twins fans, as the class has traditionally been heavily dependent on its Superbike relationship. Not having that link decreases the likelihood that a manufacturer will continue to develop or even offer a twin to the sportbiking public.

For the time being, things are rosy in twins-land. The Aprilia Mille has been updated for 2003 with a close-ratio gearbox, four-pad Brembo front calipers and a more aerodynamic tailsection. We’re intimately familiar with Ducati’s incredible Pierre Terblanche-penned 999 ("Style or Substance," April ’03).

And Honda’s similarly amazing RC51, which returns unchanged for ’03, handily won our twins shootout last year ("Twin Peak," Oct. ’02) as well as making a strong showing in our modified BOTY showdown ("Higher Learning," Dec. ’02).

Now before all you Suzuki TL1000R owners get your rotary dampers in a twist and fire up your computers to e-mail us about how great the TL is, and how it’s an injustice that we are ignoring it, know this: The TL, still a current model, was the proverbial knife in the last twins shootout we included it in ("With Both Barrels Blazing," October ’00), and it would fare no better against these updated models. That’s srmail@primedia.com, attention Kent Kunitsugu.

On to the nitty-gritty, then, as the Italian twins attempt to better the performance turned in by last year’s champ, the RC51.
