Naked Bike Shootout - 20SDR Rates Highly

Post by Aussie Dave » Sat Jul 18, 2020 1:17 am

I spotted this on the KTM forum...... even though they must have been paid by Aprilia to award #1 rating to the Tuono, they were fair and accurate with their comments and the 20SDR rates highly - we are so spoiled for choice though.......

What makes you say Aprillia must have paid them to award the Tuono the no.1 spot?
That bike has been widely acclaimed as one of the best motorbikes ever made by journos all over the world! They've added electronic suspension to an already class leading package so it was always going to be a formidable champion to topple.
I'm a KTM fan obviously and not overly keen on Italian engineering however every now and then you just have to concede when something is just right.

errrr, this is a KTM forum so a bit of one eyed banter might be expected.......... :lol:

Note I didn't claim the 20SDR was better or should have been awarded #1, only that it was rated well in that comparo........ I did say the review was fair and accurate..........

I stick it to Ducati's even though I ride with a bunch of Ducatisti that I have known for 30+yrs ........ and I better not say anything about BMW's as I also ride with a couple of R1200RT owners......... :shock: .
