What to Expect

Paris Dakar replicas that weigh in at 420lbs (heavier than the street Ducati’s whose engines they share) but less silly than BMW off-roaders. Styling doesn’t inspire but the lusty engines make them shift in a suitably fearsome manner and handling’s okay. They are occasionally used for the cut and thrust of DR work, which makes for some interesting times in London – they are tough enough to leave a line of wrecked cars in their wake. Check for slipping clutches and ign hassles.
