This bike is genius at work because just about everyone can enjoy it. Novice riders will feel secure and planted in with an adept array of suspension, traction control and ABS. The larger 19" front is less twitchy than a 17" and the 950 engine is ample but it won't leap out an get you into trouble. Advanced riders who know you don't need a big engine to have fun but midrange machines often fail in other areas at speed. Not so here, the MTS950 shines by heaving the stiffer Enduro frame, the same brakes and quality Ducati suspension. You can rail it in the twisties with confidence.
