Well, you can be, but it won’t be comfortable. MD has two of the best, most powerful nakeds ever produced in its test stable, the KTM 1290 SuperDuke R and the Kawasaki Z1000. MD is one of the few online publications to have tested both bikes previously at their press launches (see these links for the Kawasaki and KTM).
A rare, powerful SoCal rain storm has passed (you can see the Z1000 staring longingly out the garage door), and a quick romp on the SuperDuke has cleared the senses. Stay tuned for some very interesting, in-depth reviews, and stunning photography of 2 amazing motorcycles.
