WHAT WE’D BUY FOR... £3000

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Buying & Selling - BY DU­CATI’S TEST RID­ERS

BEPPE GUALINI Pro­fes­sional test rider, in­struc­tor and for­mer Dakar racer 2014 HONDA CRF450 The only bike I’ve never tried is a small elec­tric en­duro bike; I’ve tested thou­sands of bikes but never an elec­tric. I doubt I’d get one for three thou­sand though, so I would go for a small sin­gle like a Honda CRF450. I love off-road­ing, from my days rac­ing Dakar, so I’d need a bike that would go any­where and do any­thing.

I would def­i­nitely go for a Du­cati Su­pers­port 900. Be­cause it has beau­ti­ful lines, it’s a cheaper bike to buy now and it’s a blast to ride. I used to own a 350SS and loved it. I now have an 1198 but I’d still go for the old 900 over that – it has a cer­tain char­ac­ter and aes­thetic that I just love.

You can get them now for around £3000 so I’d def­i­nitely buy one. I rode a friend’s 350 re­cently for the first time and now I know it’s the one for me, and am cur­rently look­ing for one!
