BRUCE IN BRIEF...

Fast Bikes - - GROUP TEST -

If you slapped a bull and stuck a wasp’s nest up its arse, it’d prob­a­bly still be milder man­nered than the 1299 S. The bike’s a proper head­case, but in the very best of ways. It’s one of those that gets bet­ter with laps, as you learn to adapt to its arm-wrench­ing mo­tor and uber ag­gres­sive brak­ing. The tech’s on point and it’s im­pos­si­ble not to love its boom­ing ex­haust note or classy looks.
