Ver­dict ‘Tri­umph’s the best all-round’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - ROAD TEST - MICHAEL NEEVES SE­NIOR ROAD TESTER

If you’re look­ing for a fast retro with great styling, un­flap­pable track prow­ess and a vo­ra­cious ap­petite for long sweep­ers, the new BMW R ninet Racer is it. But you pay heav­ily for all this good­ness with a bru­tal rid­ing po­si­tion. The Tri­umph continues to be class-lead­ing. It’s not as quick as the BMW, nor as sta­ble, but it’s smooth, com­fort­able, fun, pretty, in­volv­ing and a joy to ride on the road and track.
