Orange vs green. Europe vs Japan. Single vs Twin. Things just cannot get hotter as we pit the sub-500cc supersport king – the KTM RC 390 – against Kawasaki’s latest – the Ninja 400. And, we belted both around UK’s Castle Combe as well as through some brilliant British B-roads. Abhishek got a first taste of Ducati’s faster yet calmer Multistrada 1260 S in Delhi after undergoing the DRE Off Road Academy just a day earlier. Our UK colleagues sampled the MV Agusta Turismo Veloce 800 Lusso SCS as well as the Aprilia RSV4 FW. Jehan spends a week in the picturesque Spiti Valley on the new Triumph Tiger 800 before immediately heading down to Chennai to race the race-prepped TVS Apache RR 310. All this, and more, in the September issue of Fast Bikes India. Grab your copy now!
