SUPER-NAKED TUONO RIVALS
YAMAHA MT-10 SP
KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R £ 13,999
The mighty Beast was updated earlier this year, and barks out an impressive 177bhp. The fully adjustable WP suspension is also revised with heavier fork springs for 2017. Similar power to the Aprilia, but with more torque.
DUCATI MONSTER 1200 R £ 15,995
The stunning R version gains an extra 15bhp over the S model, taking it to 160bhp, but while it’s 15bhp down on the Aprilia on paper, it’s also a notable 6.5kg lighter, at 180kg.
Launched just last month the new SP features semi-active suspension from Öhlins, a full colour dash and a 160bhp crossplane R1- derived engine. Less power but £2600 cheaper than the Aprilia.
MV AGUSTA BRUTALE 1090RR £ 14,799
The range-topping member of the Brutale family uses a 1078cc inline-four – kicking out 158bhp – to brutal effect, while it also boasts 8-level traction control and ABS. One for the connoisseur.
