Verdict:

If I was to have to choose between the naked and fared machines, I would at first draw a blank. Both are excellent in their own right, and provide thrills for days.

But, as is always the case, the naked option promises to be that little bit more practical, comfortable and manoeuvrable. And, it’s £300 cheaper – which is a lot of money when you’re talking sub-4k bikes.

If I’d have access to either of these downright fun machines as a learner, a full licence would have been hard to justify.
