IG­NIS TAKES A ‘BOW’

My two boys, aged 11 and 13, and I did a dol­lars-for-thrills com­paro on specs alone of your Top Five Ban­tamweights (Show­room, July). A point for ev­ery $10K un­der $200K; power scaled one to five with the most pow­er­ful get­ting five; an in­dex that di­vided value by weight with the low­est get­ting five; an in­dex which di­vided value by the 0-100km/h time, with the low­est get­ting five points; and the 0-100km/h sprint out­right, with the fastest get­ting five points. I think you get the idea by now.

The re­sult – two dead heats – was not to­tally sur­pris­ing given the strato­spheric price of the KTM, but it did get my boys think­ing, and it was a bit of fun. We own two Suzuki Swifts, so it was a big grin for the Ig­nis.
