Comparo – Aprilia Caponord vs Tiger vs BMW R1200GS vs KTM Adventurer 3

having to sit down and process the of information and notes about all bikes has been a real Okay, it’s been a pain in the arse as well, but each bike’s abilities in terrains has yielded a pretty idea of their standing in to each other.

However, in order to get a valid we have to define the importance of a prowess in the dirt or on the road. this will vary rider to rider, realistically owners will likely the majority of their riding on highways, hitting the twistier at times and occasionally going a gravel/dirt road in between.

this in mind, we’ve the most weighting to how the bike eat up the miles, then perform in the and finally explore the dirt. We cap it all off a comparo table of their performance data and options. also a price comparison of bike after the costs of the has been included to help the comparison playing field.

So, without further ado, the CMG definitive count down:

To the embarrassment of all, the KTM would get too and puke.

4th) KTM 950 ADVENTURE – The is a real gem and surprised us all by just how it could … the dirt, and effectively than all the others. it’s firmly on the dirt of the spectrum, although it will the twistier side of pavement track!) very well, it short when it comes to riding.

There is a big question of reliability as both of the examples we rode had with over-heating, the first one up its gearbox to boot. It’s the one of the four that comes a limited 12-month warranty ‘Nord and Tiger getting two and BMW three!), which wouldn’t be to put my mind at ease.

Basically, the Adventure dominates the side of the spectrum, does well in the more gnarly stuff, but fails to reach the touring side with any effect, thus the grading.

2nd ) A tie the Tiger and Caponord!

The only of the bunch.

TRIUMPH TIGER – the Tiger isn’t that far the Caponord in what it can do and where it on the dual-sport spectrum (i.e. on the road side). It’s a chunk cheaper than all the once the options are factored in the comparison chart below) helps to excuse it for its limitations, but the remains that it can’t do dirt.

I do think that it’s a that Triumph have it more towards the road the dirt though (they even mention dirt in online blurb) when could have done a model – one heavy-duty real and one sporty tourer with capabilities.
