Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

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.

£ 13,399

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.
