Which bike should I choose?

Published: 05 April 2012

I've been given a budget of approximately £7500 by my employer to buy a replacement for my 2004 Hornet 600.

I need to commute 50 miles into London from Essex every day and initially thought of either a new 600 Hornet, its big brother the CB1000R, or a Street Triple.

Then a friend suggested, as it's not my money and I haven't got to pay for servicing, a KTM RC8.

Which one do I choose?
