The 2015 Icon was a huge success and sold by the bucket-load. Now a carefully updated Icon looks set to follow a similar trend. Like the old model, it’s simple and easy-to-ride, but is now softer, more comfortable and has a refreshed look. Add welcome features like DLR and cornering ABS and a stronger package emerges.
It’s a shame the price has gone over £8000 and its engine really needs a little more character. But even if you don’t buy into the image, marketing hype and lifestyle, it’s still a brilliant all-round and desirable road bike, now made just that little bit better.
