There’s plenty more fish in the sea, they say. But when you get attached to a certain fish (Ducati Multistrada Enduro), and that fish gets nicked – it feels like nothing can take its plaice. However, when Consumer Editor Tony Hoare left MCN he offered me his SV650; more of a goldfish compared to my great red shark, but I was still happy to snatch the keys. You could buy three SVS with the money you’d spend on the Strada. But in return you get a bike that’s half the size, tank capacity and power, which isn’t a problem for the everyday ride, but as my commute is 100 miles each way I have a feeling I’m going to miss the creature comforts.
