Honda’s Updates Sweep Across The Range

Ross’ Opinion
Stood side by side with the BMW and the Indian, the Ducati looks a bit like a toy. It’s more compact and its finish doesn’t exactly scream high quality (even though it’s obviously a very well made machine from the Italian experts). But all that plays

Indian Ftr 1200 Rally
