ADAM CHILD MCN GUEST TESTER ‘The KTM wins on price and at­ti­tude’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Features - Th

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.
