She is driving KTM a hit. She even leaves a lot of space for tall guys. Your powerful twin has a wonderful taste. A special treat: the anti-wheelie mode can be switched off in the optional track mode. Thus, despite traction control, high wheelies are child’s play. Enjoyment of life follows after driving.

MOTORCYCLE test result: KTM 790 Duke No one needs more motorcycles on the country road. The 790 can do so much without being stressful. Neither secretly nor quietly or quietly has a motorcycle power grown up in Austria for pure road machines. compliment.

It is love! Thanks to the magnificent engine, the Streety is an inspiring driving machine. 420 buyers in Germany succumbed to the addictive potential of the three-cylinder by the end of July 2019. The “S.” has opposite the “R.” simpler spring elements and no radial brakes.

MOTORCYCLE test result: triumph Street Triple S The 113 hp three-cylinder impresses with its great manners and performance. An engine from another galaxy, smooth and powerful. A first-class fun grenade. And for around 1400 euros more, there would even be that “R.” with fully adjustable chassis.

Heavy on the ball. The Suzuki can bend and is also reliable thanks to the non-slip Bridgestone S-21 tires. The deep grumbling four-cylinder throws itself into the stuff, finely attested by the traction control with clearly distinguishable levels.

MOTORCYCLE test result: This motorcycle leaves you – and that is really meant in a positive way – just in peace. You only ride for yourself, clear your mind and get a lot of motorcycle for your money. The Suzi is inconspicuously fast, but also almost a little heavy for this performance class.

4. Honda CB 650 R

The quartet of manifolds cites the CB 400 Four from 1977. The design looks waxed (bronze-colored metal parts!). The 650 is easy and handy to drive. The compact Silver Surfer fits small drivers even better.

MOTORCYCLE test result: The clean design is pleasing, classically inspired, yet unmistakably modern. Fine manners help beginners and old hands. The pure driving performance is absolutely fine, the payload stumbles. The CB’s biggest problem is their strong opponents.
