Ver­dict ‘MT-07 is one of the greats of mo­tor­cy­cling’

If money wasn’t an is­sue then we might be tempted by the Du­cati Mon­ster 797 as it’s the most de­sir­able and has the sweet­est han­dling. And although the mo­tor lacks a lit­tle gusto it’s more than suf­fi­cient for road rid­ing.

But if it were my money on the ta­ble, it would be the Yamaha MT- 07 ev­ery time – at £6099 it’s an all-round bar­gain and, pound­for-pound, one of the greats of mo­tor­cy­cling.

At only £69 a month on PCP, the Kawasaki is pretty tempt­ing, even cheaper than the Yamaha at £89, and if you in­tend to spend more time in the city than out of it, the Kawasaki could be ideal. The Suzuki ex­ceeded our ex­pec­ta­tions. It’s com­fort­able, quick and stylish – as well as be­ing our first choice for big miles and out­right power – but there’s no way it can touch the Yamaha for its all-round ver­sa­til­ity.
