The new Kawasaki Versys 1000 takes on the Triumph Tiger 1050 and BMW R1200GS in our exclusive group test.
Senior Road Tester Adam Child is joined by Web Producer Liam Marsden and MCN's speed tester Bruce Dunn in putting the trio of adventure bikes to the test on roads across the UK.
Currently heading towards Donington, Matlock and the Peaks on a variety of roads, they'll find out if the high-tech Kawasaki can match the big-value Triumph and the class-leading GS.
You can follow the progress of the test, read initial thoughts and take a look behind the scenes via Adam and Liam's Twitter accounts: @Adamchadchild and @MCNLiam.
