Ver­dict ‘Not just a Sun­day toy’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Road Test - MATT WILDEE SE­NIOR ED­I­TOR

The Du­cati is the only ma­chine that doesn’t have any kind of flaw. Com­bin­ing su­perb han­dling with bril­liant build qual­ity, it also has a com­mand­ing, but com­fort­able rid­ing po­si­tion – a rar­ity for a bike like this.

It is pricey, but doesn’t have the er­gonomic prob­lems of the BMW, is far bet­ter built than the Yamaha, and makes the Tri­umph look heavy, long and slow (which it is). The Café Racer is a bike you could live with on a day-to-day ba­sis and not get tired of its quirks, or bored with its per­for­mance. It’s more than just a Sun­day toy and eas­ily the most well-rounded bike here.
