Got a test ride on a KTM adventure 950 coming up...£7500ish new

What else should be considered ?

BMW1150GS s/hand £5500ish
Aprilia Caponord new £5200ish
Suzuki V strom new £5500 ish

Seems the KTM is a lot more expensive than the competition but to me looks better

I have enough bikes thanks

Very much what I was thinking. At least 6 g's for a high miler - 6.5-7 for anything with sub-20k on the clock.

I used to have a Varadero and I thought it was shit hot, just a bit thirsty, aparently they've sorted that with the new one. Build quality was good, comfort was excellent and the pillion seat, I am told, was second to none (and we tried all of the above mentioned apart from the KTM).

I have been all through these type of bikes and I think I will be getting another Varadero next year when I can afford the latest one.

Being as you will be selling it within 2 weeks, the best thing you can do is get the beemer, that will have the best resale value.

Why would he want to sell it so soon? Make your point!

The major new features of the new GS can't be seen on the pic.

The only reason it looks cool is 'cos it has a Touratech ORYX bodykit grafted on (alternative kit for the F650 Dakar chassis).

You know I'm right.
