The 2010 Kawasaki GTR1400 has incredible traction control according to our man who is testing the bike on wet and cold Tuscan roads.

At the launch of the new 2010 Kawasaki GTR1400 MCN's Adam Child said.

‘The new traction control system is impressive and is saving slides when accelerating hard over drain covers and white lines when on the slippery Tuscan roads.

All the great traits of the old bike like the smooth power delivery and comfort are still present but now the GTR is closer to the BMW spec with new linked ABS system and traction control. There’s also a long list of optional extras including a pre-set electric screen.’

Adam’s full report will be in MCN on sale 28 October.
