Happy New Year! Welcome to the combined January/February issue of Cycle Torque.
A big shout-out to everyone who has sent us feedback and/or letters from the last issue. We value everyone’s opinion and look forward to hearing from you in the future. Write to firstname.lastname@example.org – it’s simple.
On the cover of this issue is KTM’s new 450 EXC-F: is it better? You better believe it.
We look at Ducati’s Hypermotard 939, it’s hyper alright. But it’s also a bit of a surprise packet. Read the test to find out more.
Also tested is BMW’s R NineT Scrambler – straight from its new Heritage range, and the Yamaha Super Ténéré. These are two bikes with different capabilities aimed at getting different markets to do roughly the same thing – to have a serious amount of fun on the road and get dirty.
We have some pretty important news for the upcoming year too. Find out how you can consume Cycle Torque in 2017.
Smarty previews Australia’s upcoming off-road race season, Flack looks back throughout Valentino Rossi’s career, now in its 21st year and we give you a New Year’s resolution to think about.
Hope you enjoy the issue.
