PICK YOUR

Winner

PXL_20210814_164239192.jpg

ROYAL ENFIELD HIMALAYAN 411

POWER: 24.5bhp

WEIGHT: 193- kilos

SEAT HEIGHT: 800mm

FUEL TANK: 15-litres

PRICE NEW: £5000

The Himalayan has been the surprise hit of the small adventure bike market, proving more capable than many could have predicted. A torquey long stroke motor and low seat height makes it the ideal novice adventure machine. Some will love it, some might not. Chance for you to make your own mind up.

KTM 390 ADVENTURE

POWER: 43bhp

WEIGHT: 158 kilos

SEAT HEIGHT: 855mm

FUEL TANK: 14.5-litres

PRICE NEW: £5499

The KTM is the newest bike in the lineup, launched in 2020 after many years of build up. It uses the same single cyclinder 43bhp engine as in the 390 Duke and benefits from having the most power and joint lowest weight alongside the Honda. A real firecracker on the road.

BMW G 310 GS (Euro 5)

POWER: 34bhp

WEIGHT: 170 kilos

SEAT HEIGHT: 835mm

FUEL TANK: 11.5-litres

PRICE NEW: £5435

The 310 GS takes the look and attitude of its 1200cc big brother and shrinks it down to a more manageable package. Designed to blend road and and off road capabilities, this could be the consummate all rounder and challenge the Himalayan for travel bike of choice. Which will you prefer?

HONDA CRF 300 RALLY

POWER: 26bhp

WEIGHT: 153 kilos

SEAT HEIGHT: 885mm

FUEL TANK: 12.8-litres

PRICE NEW: £6099

The CRF300 Rally is also new for 2021 and offers a chance to ride the latest trail bike from Honda. Changes to the CRF 250 are mainly felt in the engine, with a stronger mid-range and improved gear ratios. Riding the 300 back to back with the 250 is a great way of measuring the change, or realising that you're happy sticking with the old one.

VOGE 300 RALLY

POWER: 28bhp

WEIGHT: 165 kilos

SEAT HEIGHT: 920mm

FUEL TANK: 11-litres

PRICE NEW: £3799

The Voge 300 Rally was a surprise arrival for 2023. A cut price CRF 300 Rally was how it was viewed. Some say it's as good. Some say it's better. The only way to know for certain is to ride them back to back and make up your own mind. The seat height might dissuade some, but for the money, it's difficult to look elsewhere.

TRIUMPH 400X SCRAMBLER

POWER: 40bhp

WEIGHT: 179 kilos (wet)

SEAT HEIGHT: 835mm

FUEL TANK: 13-litres

PRICE NEW: £5595

The new Triumph 400X has set the cat amongst the pigeons since its 'affordable' price was announced. More street scrambler than trail bike, the Triumph threatens to offer what most riders want; light, affordable, with enough power for everyday riding. Let's see how it compares to an increasingly competitive market.

ROYAL ENFIELD HIMALAYAN 452
(availability TBC)

POWER: 40bhp

WEIGHT: 196 kilos

SEAT HEIGHT: 825mm

FUEL TANK: litres

PRICE NEW: £5750

A step chance for Royal Enfield with the 452 over the original 411. More power, more tech, more torque, similar weight. Is it any better in the real world? The proof will be in the pudding, but no doubt this is one of the bikes to beat in 2024. The Triumph is a close adversary, but with the CF Moto MT450 on the horizon, things are certainly hotting up!
