ADAM CHILD MCN GUEST TESTER ‘The KTM wins on price and attitude’
As much as we loved the style of the new Ducati, everyone preferred the KTM to ride, especially when considering price and attitude. We all discussed what the outcome would be if the prices were equal, but even if the Ducati were £2000 cheaper, two out of our four test riders would still have opted for the KTM.
If you don’t like the funky styling of the KTM and the Ducati is too pricey then the Yamaha is the next best bet, just – especially if your riding is more town focussed. But the Yam doesn’t have the build quality, brakes or styling of the harder Kawasaki.
