In South-Pohjanmaa, an area in west Finland, everything is big and wide, just like in Texas, USA.
So it's not especially surprising that several motorcycles from the area are wide too, like this article's Suzuki GSX-R 1000...
Well, when it comes to gearboxes, in addition ot the ratios going up and down, there's also the issue of what goes in, must come out. And getting bee-haitch-pee from the crank into and out of the transmission - with minimal power loss and at the greatest of ease - is what Nova Racing are the experts at.
WWB Test Ride KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE GT
You're probably wondering, why the f*ck do Worldwide Bomber Magazine want to test a touring adventure bike?
Well, in the Bomber office, we've talked a lot about who it is who feels like they need to own this kind of bike, and whether you can use them in any other way than just riding across Europe with a fat lady on the pillion seat? Are they made just for bikers over sixty years of age who don´t have any real life left? Even though we're not huge fans of this kind of high-front-screen bike, we know that they have sold really well for the past few years. So, we figured, there are enough reasons to test this kind of bike, to see if all the cliches are true or false. So, as we like the colour orange, we chose the KTM 1290 Super Duke GT.
