‘With its ac­ces­sories fit­ted, the MT-10’S an easy win­ner’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Features - MICHAEL NEEVES ROAD TESTER

The KTM is the most ex­cit­ing tourer we’ve ever tested. The MT-10 might not have such sharp han­dling or a gen­er­ous fuel range, but we like the less-in­tru­sive elec­tron­ics and the en­gine is a work of art. It’s loads cheaper, too, even with all its ac­ces­sories fit­ted, mak­ing it the easy win­ner of our test. Hot on the heels is the Kawasaki with its comfy seat and stonk­ing en­gine, but it’s still cramped. The BMW com­bines com­fort with per­for­mance, but it isn’t in the same league as the top three. Bring­ing up the rear is the Aprilia, a ma­chine we all loved, but lacks char­ac­ter and thrills.
