Video: KTM 690 Duke longterm update

After 2000 miles with the new KTM 690 Duke, MCN's Liam Marsden gives us a quick update on his year so far. The Duke is spot on for commuting and hammering down twisty country roads, where bigger, more powerful bikes would struggle. If you want a pure, no-nonsense bike, the 690 Duke should be top of your list. brightcove.createExperiences();

Short but sweet video of an Interesting bike would like to see a bit more riding and the occasional Wheelie (it must be capable of a little lift).

is this guy doing the video? Never have I seen more of an uncharismatic and very boring pimply teen journalist! I don't mean to personally attack the guy, but he turned a decent video about a decent bike into a chore to watch.

As if puberty wasnt enough for the guy , now hes got to listen to your critisisms? Give the guy a break.

Besides , I don't see you rushing for your helmet with mounted camera. Its hard work pleasing a crowd. You are doing something wrong if no one says it was a bad performance.

The guy in the video has the charisma of tap water, and made thousands of people now not want a 690 Duke :-o

two points; 1) leave the chap alone you miserable old basterd, encourage him and then bikes will keep rolling out the factories to the UK, as if biking isn't in enough of a decline?! 2) wtf is the point in making 90 second videos.... MCN let me send you a 4GB card so you can get at least 10mins as your 64MB card is obviously not enough

where is the review??

KTM is probably one of the bets bikes, but MCN excels at rubbish videos, how on earth this video can be called long term update given the fact that there is not even one sensible sentence in the whole thing WTF? And we learned what exactly from the update??
