There’s a lot of value out there

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Adventure Special - ADAM CHILD SE­NIOR ROAD TESTER

All these bikes are ex­cel­lent. Five grand buys you a lot in the used ad­ven­ture mar­ket, in fact we could have dropped our price even lower. Of course, the bike you choose de­pends on your de­mands. For those big Euro fort­nights away you can’t go wrong with a BMW R1200GS, but if you want to spend week­ends ex­plor­ing trails, the Yamaha XT660Z is the ob­vi­ous choice. The Suzuki V-strom is an ex­cel­lent ev­ery­day bike, but per­son­ally, at this £5k price point, I’d opt for the Tri­umph Tiger 800. It was su­perb when new and has barely aged to­day – and does it all.
