MotorCycleNews took the testride in Spain. They liked it…. Ahh “like” is not really a word to describe all that they’ve experienced!
“From the beginning of our test route near Barcelona there was immediately no doubt that the XR is both a proper, adventure-style machine *– it’s a tall, substantial bike with bars that brace your arms wide behind a meaty fairing complete with hand-adjustable, two-position screen – but it’s also one with the heart of a snarling beast.”
“Plenty of sportsbikes are set to be shamed by the XR, I guarantee.”
“On this experience, the XR isn’t just a bike for all reasons, I’m struggling to think of any reason why you wouldn’t want one. Prices, TBC, are set to start around £13K for the bog basic that no-one will want, the around 15 for the fully-loaded variants.”
This Bike should arrive (TO ME!) after 34 days of waiting!
