2013 Test Rides – Sneak Peek

2013 model ranges are being announced and launched thick and fast at the minute. Almost every manufacturer has revealed details of its machinery for the next 12 months and already MOTO has been putting in hard laps testing new machines from KTM and now Kawasaki and Husqvarna too.

MOTO’s highly respected chief tester Dave Willet jetted off for a week of hard testing on a pair of renowned GP circuits to put the 2013 offering from Kawasaki and Husky through their paces recently. Firstly Willet gave the exciting new air-fork fitted Kawasaki KXF450 and new KXF250 a good thrashing at German GP venue Teutschenthal, then he hopped on a flight to sun-baked Italy to hammer the Husky MX and endure range at former Italian GP host, Gallarate.

You can read Willet’s assessment of both model ranges in the forthcoming MOTO 81, which is on-sale July 4, but in the meantime here’s some sweet shots of the boy Dave in action on the new metal to wet your appetites.
