VER­DICT

MCN - - FIRST RIDE -

The 2015 Icon was a huge suc­cess and sold by the bucket-load. Now a care­fully up­dated Icon looks set to fol­low a sim­i­lar trend. Like the old model, it’s sim­ple and easy-to-ride, but is now softer, more com­fort­able and has a re­freshed look. Add wel­come fea­tures like DLR and cor­ner­ing ABS and a stronger pack­age emerges.

It’s a shame the price has gone over £8000 and its en­gine re­ally needs a lit­tle more char­ac­ter. But even if you don’t buy into the im­age, mar­ket­ing hype and life­style, it’s still a bril­liant all-round and de­sir­able road bike, now made just that lit­tle bit bet­ter.
