You may have read about bike over the last few It’s big, long, red and has a nice Ducati 900 motor out of the I too had read a review, and although about riding the bike, I to confess that I was missing the when it arrived.

Why, you ask and a suitable answer I’m I don’t have, only when I saw it, I didn’t know it was trying to be, and why it existed in the first

Ask an R1 rider why his bike exists and get a pretty good idea-if a reply. Ask a Hog rider and he/she most likely laugh. an Africa-Twin owner would you pointers.

But ask a Gran Canyon and I suspect he maybe somewhat The reply might include, not be necessarily limited to; ground comfort, rideability, commutability and It may also contain the word for the bike is quick, responsive to input and very tractable town.

Visibility may, too, up unsurprisingly, as the thing is sat on a spring so and tightly wound that 90 Kg/190pounds cannot dampen enthusiasm.

What you won’t get is a answer. Does that I really don’t know, lots of other scribes more profound than me) heaped praise upon the

I though, just couldn’t get on it and not because it’s a sports with 120bhp and 1 mile capability, as I can’t and don’t DO

I like to think I can assess any on its particular merits. I once tested a Trabant along cobbled streets (you the ghastly East German thing U2 made famous) and found merits in it’s existence.

Let’s start on the The bike is too tall. I am 6ft 2ins boots on and even I had trouble surefooted ground contact on The bike is not comfortable.

The back is good and nice ‘n but the rest is a no-no. The rear bag plate is next to useless as it has no for hooks etc and lacking a pillion across the seat also travelling with a spare is damn fiddley. The riding combined with the bike’s makes cornering kind of although the on-road (as opposed to tyres actually make for execution.

On the good side the bike wicked. The front lights are and effective too, the twin caps are gimmicky but different (do actually do anything?) and the engine and match seamlessly to provide acceleration and clutchless shifting.

Cagiva tell me I am the first to fault with the Canyon. In my this was the first such I have tested, although I am unsure as to what it is and where it What I will say is that if you are 6ft4ins or wear 4ins commute everyday, need to jump onto pavements or other vehicles, enjoy a view or two and like a bit of speed in- then take a look at you will have found soulmate.
