It’s not really surprising to see the BMW R1200 GSA coming out as the testers favourite for road riding. Saying that, it was good to see the Suzuki V-Strom 1000 XT getting an honourable mention. It will be interesting to see what bike they choose as best for off-road riding.

Incidentally, that is the third Africa Twin I’ve seen go down in a review video and smash it’s engine casing (expensive!). Maybe Honda should put crash bars that offer protection for the engine casings as a standard fitted component.
