‘Close call, but Du­cati nicks it’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Road Test - ADAM CHILD SE­NIOR ROAD TESTER

The ver­dict is close – with a 50:50 split among our test team, with half pre­fer­ring the Du­cati and the other half the KTM. But the Du­cati just takes it be­cause it is a more ca­pa­ble all-round bike, more re­fined than the KTM, with greater lev­els of com­fort. The KTM takes sec­ond and is, the most fun, most pow­er­ful and most able off-road. The BMW is the com­fi­est and most ro­bust, with the Honda fourth, though its off-road abil­ity might make all the dif­fer­ence to some – and it still of­fers great value for money.
