Last night we attended the 2018 Pirelli Bike of the Year awards, which was held at Katy’s Palace Bar in Johannesburg. It was my first time going to Katy’s Palace Bar, and I must tell you the place was awesome! A really cool, vibey hang-out spot with a spectacular backdrop of Sandton’s skyline. Oh, and the food was great – I highly recommend it. Once a year the entire SA biking industry gets together for these awards, which is always really nice.
Anyways, without further ado here are the results;
1st place – Ducati Panigale V4 S
2nd place – Triumph 765 Street Triple R
3rd place – Kawasaki Ninja 400 SE
4th place – Triumph Tiger 1200 XCa
5th place – KTM 790 Duke / Honda Goldwing
ZA Bikers would like to congratulate Ducati South Africa for winning the Pirelli Bike of the Year 2018 title with their Ducati Panigale V4 S, and congratulations to all the runners up.
Also, we would like to give a huge shout out to Pirelli, who have been sponsoring this prestigious event now for 6 years – we would just like to say thank you!
