SU­PER-NAKED RI­VALS

Motorcycle News (UK) - - New Bikes -

YAMAHA MT-10 £9999 (EST) 998cc O 165bhp (est) O 199kg (est) At last, a proper naked R1. The 999cc MT-10 prom­ises a nutty en­gine, friskily short wheel­base, three rid­ing modes, trac­tion con­trol and nutty man­tis-like looks. It’ll be bonkers.

BMW S1000R (£9900) 998cc O 160bhp O 207kg The ma­chine the new Speed Triple has to beat. Not as hand­some as the Tri­umph but it’s cer­tainly pack­ing the tech with Dy­namic Damp­ing Con­trol and cruise con­trol avail­able as ex­tras.

KAWASAKI Z1000 (£9499) 1043cc O 140bhp O 221kg Big, ballsy bad boy shuns fancy elec­tron­ics in favour of a su­per sweet chas­sis and real driv­able power. It’s got low-down shove and top-end zing, plus su­per-sweet chas­sis com­po­nents.
