its true what they say paper never refused ink " bandit 600,sv650 ,fazer 600 all vastly better bikes "they are in me hole that journalist is a goul they are all pure road bikes not even in the same league . if he wanted to compare it to other bikes he could have went with Suzuki dr 650 Yamaha xt 600 or Kawasaki klr 650 all dual sport bikes . I used to own a klr 650 I rode an xt600 e was never on a dr650 so I cant comment on that but out of the three I have experience of the Transalp 600 is by far the best and in my view the finest motorcycle ever made its all about the ride how the bike makes you feel and the Transalp 600 delivers' the goods and keeps on chugging away without complaint year in year out :thumbup:
