Diver­sion delu­sion


‘Why bother when an MT-07 is 1200 quid less,’ you say [Bike, The Tests]. So be­ing the owner of a Divvie F I took a test ride on the much lauded MT. Yes, it’s got a great mo­tor at low to midrange, but the Divvie is way more en­ter­tain­ing at the top end when its R6 DNA shows through. The MT is hor­ri­bly over-tyred at the back whereas the Divvie is much more nat­u­ral han­dling on its 160 sec­tion rear. Qual­ity, fit and fin­ish are far su­pe­rior and the fair­ing gives much bet­ter dis­tance ca­pa­bil­ity. So please ei­ther take the Divvie off your new bike list­ing [we have], or per­haps even ride one be­fore mak­ing lazy pro­nounce­ments about it. Graeme Hyde, email

Of course we’ve rid­den it and we ad­mire your staunch, yet fan­ci­fully far-fetched de­fence, es­pe­cially the R6 DNA bit – MG
