Performance Bikes, now known by the shortened title of "PB", is a monthly British motorcycling magazine which evolved during the 1980s from the long-running Motorcycle Mechanics. The magazine features a mix of motorcycle and product tests, with technical articles and design innovation.

In 2007, PB moved testing of many of the motorcycles to the Nürburgring, in the Eifel Mountains of Germany. Where the Nordschleife fastest lap times are captured and collated into a table. This feature is called the PBTT, which stands for Performance Bikes Test Track.

PB is notable for its long association with the late journalist John Robinson (who had been with the magazine since its Motorcycle Mechanics days until his death in 2001). Robinson was key to Performance Bikes pioneering the use of a dynamometer in the performance testing of motorcycles by a magazine.
