FUEL 12 litres @ 63mpg = 164 miles WEIGHT 198kg (dry) SEAT height 750mm POWER 54bhp TORQUE 59ftlb PED BAKER En­joys tin­ker­ing nearly as much as rid­ing. HEIGHT 6ft 4in WEIGHT 90kg peter.baker@mo­tor­cy­cle­news.com My Street Twin was bor­rowed for a group test a cou­ple of weeks ago. Up against the BMW Scram­bler X, Du­cati Scram­bler FT and Moto Guzzi V7 Stor­nello it was in­ter­est­ing to hear other rid­ers’ take on the bike, es­pe­cially the com­fort. De­spite it be­ing on the firm side I find the op­tional Bench seat (£255) very com­fort­able and on a twohour mo­tor­way ride to the south coast re­cently I didn’t suf­fer any aches and pains, prob­a­bly be­cause it’s very easy to shift your back­side around. But some of the shorter rid­ers said the edges of the seat dug into their thighs. As my legs are longer than ‘nor­mal’ my thighs sit more level on the bike and don’t rest on the seat edges. 002994

Shorter rid­ers didn’t dig the bench seat
