DUCATI MULTISTRADA 1200S

Secondhand - HUSQVARNA NUDA 900 2012-2013

After shining brightly in the firmament for a moment, it suddenly disappeared – but hey, you can still get a nice used Nuda

NAKED SHAKEDOWN

Human nature will no doubt have caused you to scan the results before reading this summary. And no doubt you will already have formed your own opinions as to whether the scores are justified. If there is one thing which amazes me most about our overall winner, the BMW S1000R, it

Ducati Monster 1200 R

Last time AMCN ran a naked group test it was the Monster 1200 S that joined the party. It was obvious from the outset that the S model was a very different animal than the other supernakeds. With an easier-going temperament and more laidback attitude than the stripped-back racer
