CCM RM30, KTM 520EXC, KTM Duke II, VOR — Supermoto test p2

a throwback to biking as it was intended to be raw, uncontaminated fun. A to grab an hour and forget all the … that’s going on in life. Ride and be free,

We chose four very Supermotos to discover what’s in their world. First up, Brit firm CCM’s new It’s an incredibly slim, 598cc single cylinder which has been stripped to the essentials leaving it lean and

In contrast, KTM’s Duke II lardy but promises more than its rivals and more potential.

You may not have heard of firm VOR and that’s not surprising as didn’t exist before but they now produce some Supermotos of which the 503 is one. Ees nice, no?

But the trickest here is the KTM 520 EXC, with very hot mods. And you start shouting ‘unfair just relax. This a comparison test, we’re getting an idea of what’s on and what you can actually do with a once you get your grubby mitts on one.

And who better to you an insight than the right Chris Walker and Niall

It would be difficult to find two with more contrasting than this pair. on an NSR500 or a Suzuki GSX-R750, never seems happy he’s hanging the back end spinning it up, and sending the front airborne. In contrast, Mackenzie’s one of the riders on the planet.

Don’t be though, he’s shockingly Put both on Supermotos and it’s to tell them apart. looks even wilder normal, if that’s possible, Mackenzie falls on his arse times than he did in 20 years’

Supermotos are mental.

Mackenzie ’em so much, he chose a II as his long-term test bike year. I wanted something wouldn’t get me into trouble but now not so sure it won’t.

Walker in. You might only be doing 80mph but it’s mostly on the wheel. As soon as you get on one of these you act like a kid so you might not get nicked for but you probably will for wheelies, and burnouts.

But they look enough so your missus worry about you going out on either.

The Duke II is the most of the four bikes making it the practical. At 145kilos, it’s heavy for off-road use but not impossible knobbly tyres), and with a top of around 110mph it’s the too. Walker says, I the fact you can buy a Duke and don’t have to do anything to it. My mate’s sold his ZX-6R for one and loves it.

He was sick of the hassle and cost of and now he’s a convert. I reckon you have more fun with 10 on Dukes than ten mates on R1s you need a track to get the best an R1.

And the Duke’s the best all-rounder That 160-section rear means you can get yer knee down at the roundabout (if you must), and there’s of torque (43 ft-lbs to be precise) for wheelies. It’s the most too with a fairly plush, seat and well positioned and pegs.

So the Duke’s more of a road with Supermoto styling a pukka Supermoto, so if you want the thing you’re better elsewhere. If, on the other hand, you the styling of a Supermoto but want practicality (like a decent fuel tank and pillion the Duke’s spot on.

CCM’s new R30 is a closer to a competition bike and the firm’s best-looking to date. says: CCM needed a bike this — they’ve too bulky in the past. I love the minimal build and look of the and the rasp from that (£130 CCM option) is awesome.

But slim build comes at a — the fuel tank’s good for about 50 road before hitting reserve. The news is that reserve two litres (a third of the overall and if you want more, there is a litre option. But then bike’s meant for racing or blasts at the weekend, not long

You ain’t touring on a Supermoto,

And it has enough plus points to up for its lack of practicality. As Mackenzie out: It’s a lot more than the Duke, but the KTM’s peaky. The CCM makes a punch of and then it’s all over,

And it can make that torque you least expect it, as Mac found to his Starting the bike in gear the clutch in while standing to it, the clutch dragged, bounced the forward and clunk, Mac was on the floor in a heap.

But it’s testimony to the of Supermotos that, like dirt bikes, they’re can a fall or two. The £5,450 CCM was apart from a wobbly A simple topple like with a Ducati 996 could cost thousands.

You’ll never crash impunity but on a Supermoto at least it has decriminalised.
