The world's best all-rounder motorcycle is identified once and for all in the April 8 issue of MCN. What do you think will win and why? Let us know by voting in our poll and commenting on this article.

The new KTM SMT will take on the BMW R1200GS and the Honda VFR800, but they will also be ridden alongside the Suzuki GSX-R1000 K9 to see how they compare to a full-on sports bike in terms of excitement and involvement.  

The bikes will be put to the test on the road first to see how they rate in terms of both fun and practicality. They will then go head to head on track at Brands Hatch to see how close their lap times are to the benchmark Suzuki GSX-R1000 K9.

What do you think is the best all-rounder? Is it one of these bikes or do you have something else in mind? What do you think makes a good all-rounder?

Do British bikers really want or need all-rounders, or are we all about the sports bikes? Please have your say by commenting below.
