Current 125GP rising star Taylor Mackenzie took delivery of a brand new KTM 125 Duke at Donington Park yesterday (Wednesday), and was immediately out on track.
Taylor only passed his CBT the previous day and was so impressed by the Duke he rode it away from Donington for more road miles after completing three sessions on track.
Taylor told MCN "I’m loving it it’s a top laugh, looks great, I managed to get 80mph out of it down Craner Curves which isn’t bad is it? I’m changing up going into Redgate which is odd, and I’m not use to a road shift, or road tyres but can’t wait to take on the road. I passed my CBT yesterday which means I can ride it home!". And he did – straight off the track in full GP leathers. Class!
