Well, the power rangers didn't disappoint. That's the best laugh i've had since their last group test
How on earth did the Guzzi Stelvio manage the standing quarter mile in 12.28 seconds yet the CT took 13.37
Perhaps it was because the CT they tested was the notoriously slow silver version
The Stelvio i tested was a right slug with no whizz for rapid overtaking. They claim the top speed of the Stelvio as 129.26 mph. What they didn't tell us was that it took 5 hours to get up to that speed
. They raved about the SMTs acceleration yet the one i tested was quite gutless. I expected it to be an animal yet when i opened the throttle it didn't go any faster it just vibrated more and the low speed fuelling was shocking. I really expected to like the bike but was very disappointed.
The Multistrada scored 10 for styling/appeal yet the CT got 7.25. How can you rate any bike on looks, surely that's subjective?
The three bikes they mentioned all the time were the Multistrada, KTM SMT and Versys but there was no mention of the Kawasakis wallowy, soft handling, yet in last years review of the Versys it got slated for its handling. It must have magically improved
I also love the way they mention that the CTs screen takes 10 minutes to raise yet some of the other bikes screens can be adjusted in seconds. They make it sound as though they are constantly adjusting their screens. I only raised mine once and it was fine so i left it there. I must be doing something wrong
What a set of jokers. I can't believe anyone would buy a bike on their recommendation.
