I've found over the years the CT is excluded more often than not from bikes vs bike tests for whatever reason. Good job then that I don't buy bikes on what journalists say, I buy what I like not what a complete stranger happens to like ;-)

Not seen article but going off original post, no Triumph either. Be interesting to see how the Suzuki faired against bikes that are probably near 50% more expensive.

Couldn't agree more Bert, MCN is just a load of tosh, just good for wrapping your fish and chips in.
