14.3.2016 Test ride the GP450 this weekend
One of our latest GP450 owners took the time out to write this letter of praise about his new bike;
…went for a quick 100 mile spin up through the Yorkshire dales on the back roads and a couple of green lanes. I knew from the minute I first saw the GP I wanted one on looks alone, when I went out (on the test ride) it confirmed that feeling. It isn't till you ride a bike on your own turf however, that you can make an objective comparison with other bikes. Over my 67 years I have had a few, most of the Jap duel sport bikes most of the KTMs. Most are far too tall, the big trail bikes are sheep in wolfs clothing. Good on road till you want to stop on a hill and can't get your feet on the ground if you are a 5ft 6 stunt like me. Most of them are a liability off road for short people like myself especially when loaded with luggage. The true
off road bikes like the 450 KTM are just too extreme… the 450 is the best handling bike I have ever ridden, it is Just as much fun to ride on the twisty narrow dales roads as it is off road....
If you'd like to see how good the GP450 really is then join us this weekend at Devon Moto in Holsworthy, Devon and MHB Motorcycles in Kirkby Stephen, Cumbria for our new dealer launch days. Call 01204 544930 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for full details
