Chief Road Tester Michael Neeves travelled far and wide (the Shropshire Hills) to test four affordable adventure bikes: Suzuki's V-Strom 1000, Ducati's Multistrada 950, KTM's 1090 Adventure and Honda's Africa Twin DCT.
Proving two things:
1) You don't need to travel to a desert or scale any far-flung mountains to have an adventure.
2) You also don't have to spend a fortune to have fun on an adventure bike.
